I wonder if Susanna's maiden name was given as Chapman Stone and the Registrar misheard and wrote Shapstan? I suppose you have to allow for a Kent accent and the fact that the Registrar was more used to a Welsh accent.
Also do you have Joseph in 1851?
There is a Joseph Snelling lodging in Neath, aged 33, a Carpenter born Ireland. Says he is married but no wife/family with him.
