In searching a booklet of Parish Register entries from Wales for my own relatives, I came across this entry, which may be of interest:

Bishopston, Glamorgan, Wales (on the Gower peninsula)
Parish Church of St. Teilo

HURN Heza (M) Moses Jane Gipsy [chr.] 18 Jun 1876

I suspect the surname is actually HEARNE, a well-known British Romany family name. And the little lad Heza may have been Hezekiah.

I do not see any other HURN or HEARNE entries in the christenings, burials, or marriages of Bishopston.
