Thomas Edward Williams & Mary Jones
« on: Sunday 06 January 08 20:34 GMT (UK) »
It's a bit of a long shot but does anyone have any info. on a Mary Jones born Anglesey 14th August 1886.  She was said to have come from Marian-Glas in Anglesey.  It is said that one of her male relatives was the post master at Benllech Post office.  At least one of her siblings emigrated to Calgary, Canada.

I Know she married a Thomas Edward Williams in 1907. 

Thomas was a Stonemason and worked on the first Mersey tunnel Liverpool. He died in 1940.


They moved to Rhos-y-medre in Wrexham Clwyd certainly by 1909. Mary lived in Rhos-y-medre until her death in 1976.

They had 9 children. A further 2 children died in early childhood (Martha and Hugh Glynne)
Surviving children were.
Annie (or Anne) born ??
Olwen Williams born 1910
Rhoda Amelia born 1913
David Hector born 1916
Olga born 1918
Sidney born 1920
Edward Stanley born 1922
Gilbert born 1926
Stella Patricia born 1929

Do you have their marriage certificate?

There were two marriages with these names in 1907.

Marriages Dec 1907   
JONES    John        Bangor    11b   863   
JONES    Mary Ellen    Bangor 11b 863    *********        
ROBERTS    Lydia         Bangor    11b   863   
WILLIAMS    Thomas      Bangor   11b   863**********

and

Marriages Mar 1907 
JONES    Mary        Bangor    11b   548   ********
JONES    Mary         Bangor    11b   548   
ROBERTS    Owen         Bangor    11b   548   
WILLIAMS    Thomas         Bangor    11b   548**********


The marriage cert would give their ages, and the names of their fathers and their occupations, which should make it easier to track them down.

Hi Silvery

Since I made this post I found their marriage certificate (woo hoo! ;D )

It confirmed enough detail for me to find Thomas Edward William's father and siblings and birth place.

His wife however is more troublesome.  It showed her as being age 24 however we know she was 20 when married (#I don't know if the registrar made a mistake or they fibbed about their ages she was born 14 Aug 1886).  It showed Mary's father as a Hugh Jones (labourer) and that they lived in Trefalgar, Llanbergoch, Anglesey, North Wales Jan 1907.  The problem starts in that they don't appear to have lived there during the 1901 census (waah! >:( ).

To cap it all there at least two or three Hugh Jone's with daughter's called Mary living in that area (around Red Wharf Bay) in 1901. :'(

By the way Rhoda A Williams (Rhoda Amelia) born 13 Mar 1913 you got that spot on.  You don't need to worry about the children as everyone logged after Mary (descendents) I have tracked down.

Jones? Anglesey?  ??? It's the hardest part of the tree so far.

Any hints what to do next would be gratefully received.

There were two witnesses to the marriage at the Penuel Chapel Llangefni, Anglesey they were William Jones and Ellen Hughes.  It's funny as we always believed she was a strict Church of Wales woman who would never deign to set foot in a Chapel???

Anyhow I attached a copy of their marriage certificate for any one to see Anglesey 11b 613
