Nevern Map- Ancestor Not Showing

Hello all,

I am an amateur genealogist seeking some advice, please. My ancestor, John Harries, who lived 1806-1855 (approx) is listed on the 1841 and 1851 Wales Census as living in Rhosfarked Fach in Nevern. I understand the Nevern Map was compiled in the years around 1843, and therefore I would have expected him to have featured in this particular area as either a landowner, or most likely, a tenant. The relevant plot numbers are 1510, 1511, 1509 etc. However, the apportionment schedule lists a John Lewis as both landowner and occupier. Could my ancestor have been a sub-tenant? Or is there another reason why he is not identified. Your wisdom would be gratefully received. Many thanks, Hannah
