Saint Briavels Baptism Records Query (Parish Records)

Catherine Portrey was [eventual] heiress to the Ynyscedwyn estate in Ystradgynlais, in the Swansea Valley. She married William Gough, of Willsbury, Saint Briavels - quite how this came to be, I do not know.

Their SON William Gough, the one whose date of birth/baptism I was looking for became a Royal Navy officer, by 1758 captain of a ship of the line

I am researching the origins of the Gough family accession to Ynyscedwyn - by the marriage of William (snr) and Catherine it initially went to their eldest son Richard, who by 1745 is hanging out with Christopher Portrey in Wales, as his clear heir.

Eventually William Gough junior's sons would accede as squires of Ynyscedwyn, after the 2nd brother, James, had exercised power over the estate, whilst also being Rector. William Junior himself never had any connection as far I have yet seen (yet).
