Laurel wreaths look a bit like that.

If you go to the GRO online index, it will give you the maiden name of the mother.
I have checked and the most likely name is Williams, this being the maiden name for Sophia and Hannah, under St Asaph which is the registration district for Abergele, and is also the same name for for Robert W(illiam)who appears on the 1891 census born 1896 Bettsw-y-coed which lies in the Conway district.

Thank you nottsgirl1,
The names of the witnesses don't ring any bells for me, but they give me another trail to follow.Now I know that at least at the time of their marriage they were both residents of St Mary's parish.

Nottinghamshire / John Taylor Marriage
« on: Friday 01 June 18 22:06 BST (UK)  »
Could someone look up the marriage of John Taylor and Mary Fletcher Nov 22 1802, St Mary's Nottingham.I am looking for any extra details that might help me. I cannot access Nottingham archives, and getting a copy seems impossible.

London and Middlesex / Thomas Minton
« on: Thursday 17 May 18 20:23 BST (UK)  »
I started researching Thomas Minton because he might be my ancestor James's father.He and his wife Lucy had 7 or 8 children. The dates are those of their baptisms.Charles1763, Susannah 1766, Nancy 1769,Catherine Louisa 1770 Thomas 1772, John 1774 died 1775,James 1775, plus Frances. Thomas died in 1793 leaving a will which gave me some additional facts,he lived in Knightsbridge,all his property including the house he leased was to be sold (excepting certain articles of furniture and household items which he left to Catherine Louisa) to his eldest son Charles he left 1 Shilling,to his five children Ann,(Nancy?) wife of Thomas Simpson(married1788),Catherine Louisa, Thomas, James, and Frances he left the remainder of his estate in equal shares. Before the estate was to be divided it was to be used to bring up Frances until she was of age to be in service.
From this information his wife Lucy and his daughter Susannah were probably deceased, but I can't find deaths for either of them.
I have found further evidence of Thomas, marrying Mary Rowell, James having a family in Derbyshire, and Frances marrying Robert Crooks but I can't connect them to thomas senior, and Catherine Louisa and Ann Simpson leave no trace.
Any help suggestions ideas welcome.
