Hi Geoffrey - Welcome to Rootschat   :D

You can do as KGarrad suggested and check out the surname interests.

Alternatively you can say what information you are looking for and no doubt plenty of Rootschatters will be willing to assist you.

Possibly Methodist?

Ponders End Wesleyan Methodist Church began when a chapel was built in 1849. In 1892, another chapel was built on the western side of High Street. Another Methodist Chapel, in Alma Road, existed from 1882 to 1898.

You could consider putting Joan and her son on the Australia board and see if anyone can help with her.

The son may well still be alive so his name can't be revealed.

Up to you.

Looks as though William had a brother who married and had five children.

Won't put the name as he may still be alive.

You may like to consider obtaining his death certificate to see who registered the death.

I can confirm that records don't always make it on to the main GRO lists.

I have a death certificate for a death which had been registered at the local registry office but never appeared on the main GRO listing.

If you can't locate a record on the GRO it is worth checking with the local registry office.

Yes, best to pop your Jones line to the back burner for now.

I think coming up against problems in family history makes it more challenging for us as researchers.  It would be a tad boring if you could find everything you were looking for very easily.  The enjoyment for most of us is the challenge of finding the link, breaking down the brick wall etc.

If it was too easy to find all we wanted, we would all be done and dusted pretty quickly.   ::)

I started family history in 2004 and there is still plenty for me to do if I so wish.   :D

I know exactly how frustrating researching a common surname can be.  I've had that with a couple of my surnames.

Once you start getting to dates that are before BMD records began it gets harder.  The best you can do is to make a note of any possibilities and where you found them, so you don't repeat the same searches again.

Records are being added online all the time.  Perhaps a few years down the line the one you want will be available.

Other alternatives are to visit the relevant Record Office for the area and search there.  Perhaps the local family history society may be able to assist you in your quest.

Not sure if the Chepstow Society will be any help, but you could try writing to them.

Not wildly helpful, mmn Jones!

JONES, ROBERT       JONES     
GRO Reference: 1838  J Quarter in MONMOUTH  Volume 26  Page 79

If the census states that he was born in Chepstow then the birth registration would also be Chepstow.  The above is Monmouth.
