Samuel Hughes' marriage(s) bef. 1808, Hawarden
« on: Friday 24 July 15 20:03 BST (UK) »
I am confused. Other families tracing descent from Samuel Hughes refer to his marriage to Ann Beavan in 14 Mar.,1808. My ancestor, Robert Hughes, was born to Samuel in 1790 in Hawarden.
Was there a prior marriage for Samuel? Please help.

Hi, as I do not know if Samuel was a Widower at his possible 1st/ 2nd marriage, this is the one for 1808:-

Perhaps there is a marriage for him around 1789-90 as my ancestor, his son, Robert was born then.

Can't see an Hawarden marriage but there's a marriage in Nannerch for -

Sam Hughes of this Parish, widower, son of Hugh and Mary Hughes, age 33 and Ann Edwards of this Parish, widow, daughter of Edward and Jane Jones age 38
(note - so unusual to see some of this info on a Parish cert)

Is this the 1790 baptism
Robert S(on) of Samuel and Ann Hughes, township Ewloe?
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

Yes, I think you have pieced it together for me. The names all are right. What is the date for the Nannerch wedding?  And thank you for all your help!
