Marriage of Catherine Watkin and Rees Arnold
« on: Monday 12 January 15 17:09 GMT (UK) »
Hello

I am currently trying to find out if an ancestor of mine is related to a tree I found online.

Could someone please check the names of the fathers for the marriage of Catherine Watkin and Rees Arnold, conducted on 22nd December 1816 in St Thomas Church Neath?

thanks

As this is pre 1837 the parish register will not show fathers names (or is extremely unlikely!)
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

If this is Rees & Catherine in 1871

I would have thought this baptism looks favourable for Rees

Thanks guys, the tree is suprisingly accurate, considering it has very single date you guys have mentioned in the right places with verifified sources.

Catherine Watkin, born in 1794 is on the census and her parents were William Watkin and Catherine Reynold.

William Watkin's parents were Rees and Mary according to the tree. Rees's father was named Lancelot Watkin. I have little information on Lancelot though
