This is certainly "a blast from the past" and thank's for the update.

The 1822 marriage and licence can be viewed on FindMyPast and there is a marriage notice in the "hatch, match and despatch" column of the Staffordshire Advertiser, 1 Jun 1822.

An item (in Welsh) in the Llangollen Advertiser, 21 Aug 1914, confirms Owen was still at 108 Manod Road. Unfortunately, no mention of marital status.


1888 map

Click on,zoom (+) and find "Tycanol" - just east of "Dinas" and south of "Fron".

The closest property to "Tycanol" is "Bwlch-y-goch". An earlier post has details of a Mary Edwards, age 6, on the 1861 Census at "Tycanol". The property immediately before "Tycanol" on the Census sheet is "Bwlchygoch". The 1861 Census looks promising re. "Mary, born Newport, 1856"

living children at the top of the list, and those who had died at the bottom.

That's how i read it.

There's a GRO death registration in Birmingham for the last named on the census. If the enumerator was removing the children that had died (checking "born" v "died" columns), did he remove the wrong Hogan?

Here's hoping the marriage cert. can deliver.

I wonder what the source of the birth dates for John (1856) and Mary (1855) is, as provided by Walt69's Welsh cousin?

I also received a very old photo identified on the reverse side of the photo as “the family home in Dinas Cross” (c. early 1920’s) with the phrase/term “Yet Y Bontbren”.
It is a two-story stone house with a chimney at each end of the roof.

My Welsh cousin just sent me an email regarding this house in which she states:
“…The photograph of the cottage we are pretty sure it is Ty-Canol, (meaning middle cottage), at Yet-y-Bontbren. 

First, a belated very warm welcome to Rootschat.

1861 Census (ref. RG09  4173  23  2)

Address - Tycanol, Dinas, Cardigan, Pembrokeshire
Henry Edwards, head, marr, 25, Ag lab, born Brawdy
Hannah Edwards, wife, marr, 26, born Newport
Mary Edwards, dau, 6, born Newport
Thomas Edwards, son, 2, Newport

The marriage cert. is certainly required.
If the birth dates of 1st June 1856 and 13 March 1855 can be "trusted", the following General Register Office (GRO) birth registrations fit those dates -

John Owen, Jun Qtr 1856, registration district Haverfordwest, vol 11a page 71- mother's maiden name James.
"Pontvane" as birthplace on the 1901 Census and the 1881 Census shows "Morvil". Both Pontfaen and Morvil fall within the Haverfordwest registration district (source Genuki Registration Districts).

Mary Edwards, Jun Qtr 1855, registration district  Cardigan, vol 11b  page8 - mother's maiden name John.
"Newport" shown as birthplace on the 1881 Census. Newport falls within the Cardigan registration district (source Genuki registration districts)

1861 Census ref. RG09  4173  5  3
Address Llain Parol (? - parch), LLanllchlwydog, Cardigan, Pembrokeshire
Levi Owens, Head, Marr , 34, born Puncheston
Martha Owens, Wife, Marr, 37, born Nevern
Anne Owens, Dau, 9, Puncheston
John Owens, Son, 5, born Morvil
William Owens, Son, 1 and Dina Owens, Dau, 1, both born Llanychlwydog

A Levi Owens married Dec Qtr 180, Haverfordwest, vol 26  page 1027 - on the same page Martha James
Also noticed a Martha and Dina amongst John's children.

All very speculative and based on the accuracy of the birth dates!! I've checked the parish registers for Pontfaen, Morvil and Newport but drawn a blank,
Pob lwc/good luck with the marriage cert.
