Help birth certificate GRIFFITHS

Classification: Query

Please could someone help me? I am confusing myself with the information I have.

I am looking for information about my great great grandfather Hugh Griffiths. I have found him in the 1881 census and due to the other family names on the census and as I know where he lived for a period of time I am sure that I have the correct man.

On the census it states he was born in penybwlch in Caernarvonshire in 1839. However when I applied for his birth certificate I entered this information that I had and when the birth certificate came back is was for a Hugh Griffiths born in Ffestiniog. I know counties were different then but penybwlch isn't near Ffestiniog? Therefore do I have the correct birth certificate for Hugh? Is there a way I can check this?

By searching ancestry for birth information I can see that there was a Hugh Griffiths born in 1839 in Pwllheli, wouldn't it make more sense that this is the birth information of my great great grandfather?

I don't know what to do find out which one is the correct Hugh Griffiths?

Please help.

Thank you.
