This marriage from GFHS Marriage Index:
6 August 1810 Thomas JORDAN of Hundred of St Briavels married Elizabeth DAVIES of Hundred of St Briavels married by Banns at St Briavels.

This is 1851 Census entry:

Mary was wife of Thomas (son of Thomas and Elizabeth) born c1813 and buried at Drybrook Parish Church on 6 March 1841 aged 27 years.

I do not believe that George buried 1871 aged 60 is son of this couple. But this George may well be:

Slowhands suggestion that George is son of Elizabeth makes more sense as the 1851 Census entry gives a matching age and birthplace
