Edward Williams Hay-on-Wye
« on: Sunday 14 June 15 10:48 BST (UK) »
Researching this for a friend.

Edward Williams b c1815, St Davids Breconshire, is on Black Lion road, Hay, in 1861 with his wife Eliza and family.

In 1871 he appears to be at the same place but with a different wife, Charlott.

Could anyone confirm Eliza died and Edward remarried?

Also the friend in question has the middle name Lilwall and so do many of his family.

The origin of the name has been lost and i have been unable to connect the Williams with the Lilwalls, who seem prominent in the area.

I have been using a tree on Ancestry, whos' owner has not yet replied to my enquiry, and cannot see any connection from that.

Maybe its pre BMD registration.

Thanks KGarrard and Trish1120

I never thought to look just across the border with Charlotte being born Hay, on the 1871census

Just returned from the library and free FindMyPast and got the Parish Register entry for Edward, marrying Eliza Nichols, Feb 19th 1842.

Next visit i'll see if i can find Edward and Charlotte's marriage in the Warwickshire Parish Registers.

Still no link to the Lilwalls?

Found

Alas, no parish entry for Edward and Charlottes marriage on FindMyPast.
