Hi Sue,

I can't see the marriage on FindMyPast, this is the marriage ref

Marriages Dec Q 1842   
BENNION    Elizabeth        Gt Boughton    19   48   
JONES    Joseph        Gt Boughton    19   48   

There is a possible likely bapt for Joseph...parents Robert & Sarah (nee Jones) he is  a blacksmith..if naming patterns are followed. Has children same names. Only the marriage info would confirm.

Joseph bapt https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KCR8-XFH born April 22 1818 abode Hawarden

Great you found the marriage Gadget  :)

This looks like the family 1841. Robert snr, John & Joseph occ is a smith. (just says Smith)

1841 - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M77R-JMP

http://wikidiff.com/whitesmith/blacksmith

Wiki - The trade of Boilermaker evolved from the industrial blacksmith and was known in the early 19th century as a "boilersmith".

I remembered that  Great Boughton was the Chester RD in the early years because one of  husband's ancestors was registered there in early 1840s  :D

Still can't think what Gayson really is - it definitely shows that on the page. It must have been very bad writing on the schedule and the enumerator wrote down what he thought!  Been looking around on the map in the wider Hawarden area but  ???

I also looked earlier, cannot find anything that would fit anywhere near either  ???

This is a poss for Elizabeth only because they are at same address area as bapt for Robert b 1844, and 1851 census.

Elizabeth Snr has occ. ind, (independent) think Elizabeth Jnr is near 19. But there are other of same name in area, so may not be right one. (ages can be rounded down to nearest 5 in 1841)

1841 - https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M77R-JJY

Possible bapt? https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X11X-BT5

Thank you so so much for the above info - it is all very helpful especially as I was getting so confused with all of the Jones' !!!

And I now have another branch to look at - The Bennions!
