Mary Williams B 1853 Robeston Wathen
« on: Wednesday 20 January 16 20:27 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for a Mary Williams (Married name) who was born 1853 in Robeston Wathen, Pembrokshire.

Once married she was a farmer's wife.

It would be great to find her parents.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

I did try and request a birth certificate from GRO but they couldn't find one.

Her husband was George Thomas born 1846 Llandowror, Carmarthenshire, Wales

A quick search of the 1861 census for Mary, b 1853, in Robeston Wathen shows a surname as Howells.

Is this their marriage?
September qtr 1881
Abergavenny Registration District     vol 11a, page 92
Howells, Mary
Williams, George

If this isn't right, when and where do you have them on a census?
I assume we are looking for a mary who married George Thomas Williams?
Rather than a Mary Williams who married a George Thomas?

On the 1911 census it says years since married "35", which implies they were married 1876?

think you need a copy of the marriage certificate to be sure of Mary's father's name & occupation.

Is it this marriage?
George Thomas march qtr 1876 Carmarthen vol 11a pg 903 with Mary Williams on the same page.

The marriage could have been 1875 as the question is how many completed years of marriage.

So, how can Mary's married name be Williams if she married Mr. Thomas? ???
