How old was Elinor when she married  and where was she born ?

According to the marriage certificate (26 November 1842) both she and the groom (Nicholas Grunna) were 'of full age' and living at Carmaker Pool (Freystrop, I presume).
I do not know where or when she was born I am afraid.

Hi again, I thought that the address of "Carmaker Pool" looked a little odd in 1842, so had a search for Nicholas and found this in 1841 census:-

Nicholas GRUNER 20 occ Collier he is living wih a John Hire and family at CAERNOKIRS POOL, Freystrop ( Transcription may not be fully correct but looks better than Carmaker)!
Census Ref HO107/1449/ 5/5/ 2

Also in 1841 census:-

Elinor HUGES 20 occ In Coal Works living with a William Lewis & Family at Little Milford, Freystrop
Census Ref HO107/1449/ 5/18 / 6

As Elinor is a widow in 1861 census, then this is a possible death for Nicholas:-

Nicholas GRONO March qtr 1855 Haverfordwest 11a 524 aged 36
Elinor is not on 1871 census so:-
Death Eleanor GRONO June qtr 1869 Haverfordwest 11a 481 aged 53

It is her baptism that I wish I could locate though?

EDIT From Pembrokeshire Burials:-

Nicholas GRONO 13th February 1855 abode High Freystrop aged 36
Eleanor Grunnah 11th April 1869 abode Freystrop Cross aged 53

Could I also ask just how is Nicholas your ancestor?

Keyboard86, apologies for not replying to you feeling somewhat overwhelmed with all the information.

Nicholas would be my maternal greatgrandfather. My mother was one of Thomas Grunnah's daughters by his second marriage.

Are you related, too?
