Oh yes, see what you mean. He aged badly before he died though! :D

Ignore me - when I magnified it, it does say 35. Hey ho. Back to the drawing board.

Oh well that looks promising actually because he was a carpenter on the earlier 1851 census. I'll have a look at me map! :D

Thank you again.

Yes, William (if it is him!) is still with the family in 1861 as a stepson and a scholar. By 1871 'my' William is a boarder away from home but I will check to see where his family is.

I can't find a matching death for Daniel JONES that I can be confident about between 1851 and 1859 - the youngest child of Daniel and Elizabeth (Ruth) is 8 in 1861. Daniel was born in Carmarthenshire in c 1808.

Family at Reply #5 is looking hopeful - Daniel dies (sometime) and Elizabeth remarries in 1859.

Yes, I'm open to all possibilities. Wouldn't be the first child born out of wedlock in our family tree! :D

Yes, William was born in Merthyr, Glamorgan in 1846.

I like the look of parents Daniel and Elizabeth in 1851, siblings include Esther (three of his children's names):
Page Number
73
Registration Number
HO107
Piece/Folio
2458 / 212

But of course there are several other options.

Might try tracing Daniel forward and see if he dies before the marriage but am a bit rusty at this! :D

Oh boohoo!

Thank you for your trouble though, Gadget. I decided to take another swing at this family and thought it wouldn't be easy. I think I need a spreadsheet or something! :D

Morning all!

Would anyone have access to Bedwellty marriages and could look up the following, please?
William JONES + Ann EVANS, Bedwellty 23 Dec 1872.
Not on Ancestry or FreeReg :(

Ann's father should be Jesse but I'd like to know William's father and any witnesses, plus occupations or anything really!

Many thanks in anticipation.
