Don't know a whole lot on this line. Here is what I believe to be the family unit.

With you being from Wales, I would presume that you are descended from James to Thomas to Gwynfor David.

Jane Creber b: 1828 in Lifton, Devon Co., England
William Creber b: 1831 in Lifton, Devon Co., England Occupation: 1881 Quarryman, Stone d: Bet. January - March 1894 in Tavistock district, Devon Co., England
.... +Ann b: 1835 in Lifton, Devon Co., England

Have never been able to link your Creber family to the greater Creber family (where we have hundreds of crebers connected). The farthest back I can trace in this family is William (b1802) from Lifton but I do not know his parents. Possible options are a William (baptised 8 March 1801 in St. Pauls, Deptford, London) which I would consider unlikely but he has the closest birth date and a William (baptised 4 october 1808 in Walkhampton). If you can identify William's parents or any other detail on his life, we may be able to add to your family tree.

I believe the William 1808 Walkhampton to be the son of James CREBER and Agnes SPRY, and is my 3rd cousin both 4 times and 5 times removed.
I don't however have anything for him beyond his baptism, but may not have yet exhausted the possibilities.

Re London, I wouldn't discount London as a possibility. Several of the extended family seemed to go to and fro.

If you are interested, this 1808 William's sister Elizabeth is on my web pages as she led me a merry dance thru the records.
