The transcription of Eliza and William's birthplace on the 1861 as 'Coven' is written as Cavan on the page image. I would think that this is really Cefn  (Cefn Mawr) a township in Ruabon parish.
It is pronounced as Cevan or Cevin or even Cavan. Most locals would pronounce it as Cevan (I do  ;D ). This would tie in with the 1851 census that Ellenmai found.


Thank you Gadget - I did wonder where it was

I was born and brought up in the area, Rosie - other locals are WRJones and Wilcoxon and maybe others.

Think this might be Griffith's baptism - father William, blacksmith  corresponding to marriage entry~

Hope, Flintshire
Oct 6 1830 Griffith Jones, son of William (blacksmith)  and Hannah of Caergwrley(Caergwrle)

Most of this info from booklets produced by Clwyd FHS and online.

PS - local saying 'live in Hope die in Caergwrle'   ;D

Found Eliza's baptism - in my non-conformist files:

Llangollen Wesleyan Circuit:

Bpt 23 May 1823 Elisa Williams.
Parents - John Williams (butcher) and Sarah
Abode - Cefn Mawr, Ruabon parish

Added - I notice that the twins were names John and Sarah  :)

 I must be missing something, I searched for all the names a found zilch.
I never have success with using the ref details, but this seems to be the  right pages but there is no 42.
