reviewing my family Tree make file it looks like I have some confusion between two William Henry Watkins and this William Watkins
The OLDCASTLE connection is good because I have seen a parish register reference to a widow who died in Oldcastle
And from the 1851 census index:via the rootsweb Monouthshire list:-
HO107/2446 p.2 Folio 167
Oldcastle (Abergavenny RD)
WATKINS,  Rebecca,  55
Caroline, 20
William, 19
Jane, 15
Rebecca, 24
I look forward to seeing that on line in a couple of years.
