Have managed to find the other two wills.  Am having a bit of trouble reading them at the moment so will have to get them on to the system so I can enlarge and see if I can work out the grandchildren etc.      Can you tell me what you mean by free reg.   

Thomas Grey and Alice are on ancestry as parents for Mark Grey.   You may be able to find a way of confirming that.

Did you find William, John and his Grandad John Davies on the 1841 census.     Have not found anybody on Ancestry yet who is researching this family, so it is good to find a cousin.   My (how many Greats) Grandfather William will  be your  (?Number of Greats) uncle.

Free Reg is a website where volunteers have indexed parish registers.  There are two search boxes county  for us Glamorgan and parishes Llangyfelach. 
   Then you can select name, dates and marriage, baptism or burial and search for Greys for a certain decade or year.  Not all parishes have been done.  I am wondering if Llangyfelach goes back to Mark Grey's baptism. because I don't find it.
   Morgan Grey's will 1818    I can't find Lott - a marriage or baptism that works .  May be out of parish     Can't figure out what had the silver buttons   a lilac or silac   must be a vest of some kind
     Yes I have found them in the 1841 census   also Richard Davies with wife Sarah, son Evan(named for his grandfather ,Margaret's father??)  Richard is also a wheelwright.  Margaret is head of household in 1851 with the niece and nephew Williams  (don't know who they are.) and a few children.
    Have sent an email off to the other cousin who is also descended from William but haven't received an answer yet.  The tree on Anc. is called wendyfisher42.  He starts with us back at Mark Grey.   Great to have a cousin to share and work with.   LizR

ok thanks for that.  I have spent a good part of the day going in and out of Free Regs without much success.    I will try these.     Getting back to the wills - Morgan Grey uncle of my William and your John.  Would his birth date have been 1791 the same as Margaret's.  There is a census for 1841 with a Morgan aged 50 and Mary at Maeseglwys ?? which looks like the same place on his will.

Sorry, I just realised you are not LizR.   Thanks anyway for the information.   I have been a bit frustrated today trying to get into one of these sites and find something, anything but have not been very successful.    Was going to give up but will now have another try with your information and hopefully will be very happy.   Thaks again.   Ellenby

Thanks Osprey  I haven't used it in a while.   sorry Ellenby  I will try to be more precise.  I had forgotten the bigger site.    Worked on the Edward Martin family because he married Martha Lott Hoped I could tie in to our Lott grandchildren  no connection found yet.     LizR

Can you tell me if there is any way I can have a look at the original Document or order a copy of one of the marriage entries in freereg.     Thanks.

Archives don't normally let you see the original parish registers. Usually they have been filmed and are on microfiche or film. Whichever archive holds them will normally provide copies. Give as much info as possible - event, names, date & parish - in this case to the archives in Swansea
