Elizabeth James Pontrhydfendigaid Cardiganshire
« on: Thursday 22 October 15 18:51 BST (UK) »
Looking for any information on Elizabeth James born Pontrhydfendigaid 1876 daughter of Robert James Blacksmith who died prior to 1908 when she married George Bayes in Kensington. Does not appear on any censuses prior to 1911 when she is married and living in Grovesend near Pontardulais . Quite a mystery. Regards

Did you get her fathers name from her marriage cert?  If you can't find her on any census from 1881-1901 have you considered she may have been illegit and made up a fathers name when she married?

I think you need to take a look at the 1911 image re: number of years married

George Rodney Bayes married 1908 - you are looking at a 1911 image for George Robert Bayes but his details tie in with Rodney

I do think the info on the marriage certificate is wrong and George Robert Bayes is George Rodney.
The Lizzy James daughter of Robert James married another person not George Bayes and stayed in the Cardigan Area. This Robert James died 1915 the Robert on Certificate had died before 1908. I have  gone down this line,spent a week in the Aberyswyth Library even visited/took pictures Robert James grave in Ponrhydyfendigaid. Been trying to solve this since 2013. Nothing seems to make sense! Regards

Hi Elizabeth has certainly been a problem for me as well, have you possibly checked out the Elizabeth Morris aged 4 shown as Grandaughter with a Margaret Morris in 1881, oddly enough on next page to Robert James occ Blacksmith?
