Edwards family Penybontrhydybeddau

Looking for more information about the parents and 6 siblings of my Great-Grandmother Margaret Edwards b1852 Trefeurig. Parents John and Margaret living in Llwynderw, Trefeurig 1861. According to census he was from Llanbadarnfawr parish (big area) and she was from Llanrhystud. Many thanks, Greygirl

No birthyears given and no information as to when the first child was born to give any clues as to their marriage

No names/birthyears/birthplaces for any of the other children yet you are asking for more info about them?

Re: parents marriage.   Have you looked for a birth registration on freebmd for any of the 6 children you mention as you can now look for mothers maiden name on the GRO site using the freebmd info

https://www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates/indexes_search.asp

Have you checked freebmd for marriages for the other children and looked for them on later censuses?

census entries to help any others searching

John Edwards head mar 31 miner lead
Margret wife 29 b. Llanrhested
Mary dau 9
John son 7
Sarah Ann dau 4
Margret 9 months
all born Llanbadarn fawr except Margret senior

1871 Penybont RG10/5567 folio 8 pg 9
John Edwards head mar 42 lead miner
Margaret wife 39
John son 17 lead miner
Sarah dau 15
Margaret dau 10
David son 7
Elizabeth dau 4
Evan son 10 months
all born Llanbadarn fawr

John Edwards head widower 51 lead miner

This would appear to be the family described in your post, but Margaret was 9 months in 1861, not 9 years, so is it the correct family?

using the GRO index for mother's maiden name, Margaret looks to have been Lloyd - maiden name for registration of Evan 1870, Margaret 1860 and Sarah Anne 1856 - leading to this marriage
