Ah! Thank you, Gadget.
A contact on  Genes Reunited gave me the link - last week- and as you say the record office are very helpful and efficient and I received the info this week. LOL! Imagine my surprise when I realised that I had already received a copy of this a couple of years ago. I had done a small amount of investigating then but had actually put it to one side and forgoitten about it - hoping something would turn up to help me. Low and behold you and Wilcoxon have helped me hugely.
Many thanks,
(Do you need any copies from the TNA, Kew? Documents online are 3.50 to download or 20p per copy in person)

Thanks for your very kind offer, Katy  :)

Now if you were to say the Nat Lib at Aberystwyth (I presume you've searched their online records?), I would send you a long list  :)

Here we go :D
1851 and Owen is 45. He is living at 5 Pottery Street, borough of Tower Hamlets, Bethnal Green, and the Ecclesiastical parish is St Matthew.
All the children were born at Sedgeford Norfolk, and the youngest is 3, so you can work out that they moved after c 1847, as lomg as Lydia didn`t go home for the births that is.

WOW :D :D Got him in 1841 aged 30. He is an apothacary and Lydia is a Straw Bonmaker ? Straw hats maybe ???
 Living in the hundred of Smithdon, parish of Thornham, Norfolk.
Great to have him with a good occupation.

I thought another `track` would be to find the will of Rev Richard Jones, and searched A2A , but nothing really seems to match for him, I thought there could have been the chance that he named his children in the will.

It`s strange Owen didn`t name his parents, and b :o :o :o :o :o y annoying.

Maybe `Jones the tablets` in Ruthin might be worth investigating.
Also in Pigots directory 1829 is a Robert Jones. Home apothecery and secretary in Denbigh. Very close to Ruthin. ???

Found  these  on A2A, could be of help. You can download this for 3.50.

 Will of Robert Jones, Surgeon of Denbigh , Denbighshire 23 October 1843 PROB 11/1987

Will of John Jones, Druggist of Mold , Flintshire 05 February 1847 PROB 11/2050

1871
Owen Jones 65 Chemist and druggist
Lydia 61.
Living at Docking Road, Sedgeford.
Children have all gone.


1881
Owen Jones 75 Chemist and druggist.
Lydia. 71
 Living at East Green , Docking, Norfolk

It seems that Owen was in the same area for a long time except for his stint in London and I suppose he died here , I can`t find either of them in 1891. Surely there would be a report of his death in a local paper, maybe someone in that area could look for you, Have you his date of death.
Obits can be a wealth of information.

Thank you once again Wilcoxon and Gadget,
"Jones the Tablets" does look a good contender - plus those wills do look very interesting.

Thank you for the census info and the directory info.

No, I did not have his dod but I just zoomed over to freembd and there he is dod Dec 1886, age 81, Docking, Nfk.

I have also delved into the Nat. Lib and found a biogrpahy about Rev Richard Jones which mentions the four gospels. It says he wrote a commentary not the actual gospels.

Once again -  many thanks and you have given me lots more areas for my research.

Best wishes
Katy
