Parents of John Isaac Edwards (1816-)
« on: Friday 09 December 16 22:20 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

I'm trying to find the parents of John Isaac Edwards. From census records he's born around 1816 in Narberth and goes by the name of John, Isaac or John Isaac. He marries Charlotte Rees from Carmarthen at some point before 1833. I have found a record of a John Edwards baptised in Narberth in 1814, son of Hugh and Martha. I would be more confident with this but none of his descendants are called Hugh or Martha. There is an Isaac Edwards baptised in Penally in 1816, son of Charles and Mary (he does have descendants called Charles and Mary), but Penally is quite far from Narberth. Any ideas?

Thanks very much
Samuel

If he married before 1833 he was very young although the 1851 shows him as 36 and Charlotte 37

1841 has a son Richard aged 8

Yes very young! It's frustrating as I can't find a record of their marriage either.

Isaac, Son of Charles/Mary doesnt seem to have married til 1848;

1851 we have;
Isaac Edwards, 36, Stone Mason, born Penally, Pembrokeshire
Mary Edwards, 26
Jane Edwards, 2
Charles Edwards, 6mths   

1861 they have 2 extra Children Lydia 8 and Thomas 6
Childrens Baptisms are on FreeREG in Penally so he doesnt seem to have strayed from where he was born.

Thank you all very much for your work! Omega, that Baptism looks a possibility, the census information I have though suggests she was born between 1811-14, but then we all know how unreliable they can be! By the looks of the Baptisms of some of Charlotte and Isaac's children they were non-conformists. John Isaac is elusive as ever, but at least we've discounted the idea of him being born in Penally!
