Lewis family
« on: Monday 19 October 15 11:57 BST (UK) »
The Lewis family were living in King Street Brynmawr,Llangattock Parish in the 1851 Wales Census.
I have been unable to find any of the family in the 1841 Wales Census.

Head William Lewis was born in 1816 in Blaenavon
Wife Margaret Lewis nee Hughes was born in 1821 in Llanelly Breconshire
Son Emmanuel Lewis was born in 1836 in Llanelly Breconshire
Son Elias Lewis was born in 1838 in Llanelly Breconshire

I have checked Brynmawr,Blaenavon,Pwlldu and some Monmouthshire parish records,but with no luck so far,so can anyone help me where this family could possibly be.

The birthyear you give for Margaret (1821) would mean she was only 15yrs old when she had Emmanuel

.Thanks for your interest both,and yes Richard there is an Enoch Lewis born 1839 in Llanelli Breconshire.
The records I have posted re,Lewis family are all from the England & Wales Census of 1851,and it states that Margaret Lewis nee Hughes was born in 1821.

If it helps,I do have their marriage date as 11 Dec 1835 in Llanelli Breconshire,so yes Carole, she was only 14 or 15 years old.

Hi,

As Carole has said if there are missing pieces from the  Welsh census for 1841 then your task is much harder.
I expect you have looked for each of the children 1841(in case they were with a relative or in the "Poor house).

Also you will have tried the various spellings of  Lewis (Louis/Lous etc.).


Good Luck

Richard
