Theodosia Howell and Abraham Richards, Tenby
« on: Saturday 18 March 17 08:13 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find out more about Theodosia Howell and Abraham Richards, married Tenby 1796. They had at least 5 children including Sarah, Rebecca and Ann born around 1800 Tenby.

I'm assuming they originate from Wales, theodosia from Tenby and Abraham from  Lawhaden. Two of their daughters settled in Somerset and Dover.

It would be great to learn more about Theodosia and Abraham.

Thanks

baptisms of children in Tenby
Sarah 13 May 1798
Elizabeth 10 Nov 1799
Mary 23 Jan 1803
Anne 11 Nov 1804

Rebecca is not theirs, it's a mistake in transcription. If you check the register for 4 Nov 1804, Rebeccah was the daughter of Wm Leach & his wife Mary.

Have checked the baptismal registers for St. Mary's, Tenby

Nov 13 (1753), Abraham son of Abraham Richards, labourer and Elizabeth his wife was baptised.

The baptismal registers go to 1767 - unable to spot a baptism for a Theodosia up to that point. Post above has possible census entry "born outside county"
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

a possibility for Theodosia, given that she wasn't born in county on the 1841.

baptism in Laugharne, Carmarthenshire
19 October 1763 Theodosia, base daughter of Hester David

Marriage in Laugharne 11 Nov 1764 of Hester David otp & John Howell of Llanfihangel Abercowin.

Thank you all so much 😀
All these details appear to fit (I know you should never guess! But I have a good feeling about this latest data).

Poor Abraham missing 1841 census is a little disappointing, but I'm delighted to have more dates / names.

Ann used the name Ann Richards when she married, but I note the baptism
 index captures the name as Ann Abraham (Ann Richards) as per Welsh naming tradition.

There is another daughter Hester Richards.  She lived in Somerset with her sister Sarah Richards who married John Carter - England census 1851-1871. In 1871 she was 69 suggests born 1802 not 1898. Are there two families with similar names in Tenby registers (e.g. Children of Richard Richards)

Find my past have record Sarah Abraham baptised 1801....not 1898 so it must be right children linked to 1851- 1871 😀
