Thank you so much for all this information. Since I haven't used this site too much and I'm not sure what all the records indicate, I'm wondering why you think that Sarah BEVAN might be the wife of James MORGAN. I found this marriage record that I believe is theirs and the last name is BETHEL:

Year: 1851
Month: Dec
Day: 31
Grooms_Surname: MORGAN
Grooms_Forenames: James
Grooms_Age: 21
Groom_Condition: Bachelor
Grooms_Occupation: Collier
Grooms_Residence: Oldcroft

Brides_Surname: BETHEL
Brides_Forenames: Sarah
Brides_Age: 21
Brides_Condition: Spinster
Brides_Occupation: [not stated]
Brides_Residence: Oldcroft

Parish_Chapel: Parkend

I'm also wondering what the Oct-Nov-Dec 1852 registration for James Morgan and Sarah Beavan that you posted means. Does this have to do with marriage? Thanks again. Your information was most helpful!

Yes but its Parkend , and does not feel "right" for Sarah from Llangarron..{ at the risk of becoming unpopular} and flying in the face of what others have said before .....

If we take MPG's note and look at Tom Rowland born in 1863 to a Morgan father and Bevan mother in Ruardean area :-

Name: Tom Rowland Morgan
Date of Registration: Apr-May-Jun 1863
Registration district: Westbury on Severn
Inferred County: Gloucestershire
Volume: 6a
Page: 201

MORGAN Tom Rowland
Forest of Dean Westbury on Severn, Newnham
23 331

Year: 1863
Month: Oct
Day: 11
Parents_Surname: MORGAN
Child_Forenames: Tom
Fathers_Forenames: James
Mothers_Forenames: Sarah
Residence: East Dean
Occupation: Collier
Officiating_Minister: W Penfold
Event: Baptism
Register_Reference: P275 IN 1/7
Page_Number: 182
Parish_Chapel: Ruardean

then the BETHEL looks more and more like an incorrect deduction.
as this couple live in the Parkend area with a child Richard born 1854 :-
MORGAN Richard
1854 Forest of Dean Monmouth, Coleford
