marriage for Abraham Jones
« on: Sunday 12 May 13 23:18 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help please. Marriage date and place of Abraham Jones to Sarah ??. First child Jane was born abt 1859 Dawley Shropshire. Abraham born abt 1834/5 Wellington. Sarah abt 1838 Lightmoor.
Further children Joseph 1864; John 1866 both born Dawley. Thomas Wm 1869; Emma 1872; Abraham 1874; Fanny 1878 born Wolstanton/Chell, Staffordshire. Hope someone can help, am slowly
going 'batty' with the Jones, Smith and Davies tribes. Many thanks.

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

Could it be this one?

Marriages December qtr 1859 

Abraham Jones    Shiffnal  6a 1191
Sarah Griffiths  on same page

www.freebmd.org.uk

To be certain - buying a copy of one of their childrens birth certs will confirm Sarah's maiden name

Throwing a spoke in the works, there is this on same page FreeBMD I know it is a few years after the first children are born but.....  I think you need the birth cert as CaroleW suggested :)

Hi Everyone - Thanks to you all for searching records and have checked them all to see if they fit in
with bits and pieces I had and they do, so hopefully can make a bit more progress. Having my mum as
a Smith and gran as Jones and my other nan as a Davies has been quite a challenge. I was doing ok
whilst family remained in the Staffordshire and Derbyshire areas but some originate from Montgomeryshire and others Yorkshire, so struggling a bit. Thanks again to everyone for helping with
Abraham's marriage. :)
