William Evans-Overton Flintshire
« on: Wednesday 11 January 17 14:17 GMT (UK) »
My seeming endless Griffiths/Evans relatives are throwing up loads of queries!William Evans was born in Overton Flintshire. in c 1840.In the 1871 Census he is showinng in Chester Cheshire with a wife Mary A given as born in c 1843 in Oswestry Shropshire.Though in other years she is given as born in Chirk Denbighshire.

Their eldest child is Edith given as born in Chester in c 1866.As I am yet to find the correct marriage for William,it would help to know Mary A's maiden name.This appears to be Edith's birth entry.Great Boughton Cheshire,Apr/May/Jun Quarter,Volume 8a,Page 389.

Regards
William Russell Jones.

There is a marriage of a Mary Ann Randles

Unfortunately there are no other names on that page so it needs a bit more investigating.
