Help required finding birth mother of Catherine Francis of Llanedi in Carmarthenshire

+4 votes
Catherine (Francis) Powell is referenced in the will of her father William Francis and is clearly a daughter from his first marriage. There is a record of William Francis marrying Margaret William on the 5th January 1747. I have also found records of three deaths of children from this marriage but no records of baptism.

Does anyone have access to the Llanedi parish register for baptisms in the years 1740 to 1760 to do a look up. Familysearch does not have baptisms for this period, only marriages and burials. I subscribe to UK Genealogy Online but they do not have images for the records in question for that period. I have confirmed the burial information which they do have.

Thanks in advance for any help.
