Welcome to Rootschat.

People on here are good, but not that good! We need a name and at least a rough date of birth, there is no way that we can help otherwise.  :D

There are five Anglesey marriages for Edward Williams and Elizabeth Williams between 1837 and 1900. Details for the one at Llangristiolus Church are below:-

28 May 1860 - Edward Williams, full age, bach., engineer of Pen y bryn, son of Edward Williams, collier married Elizabeth Williams, full age, spin. of Penterfyn, dau. of Michael Williams, farmer. Bride and groom both signed their names, witnesses were Edward Hughes and John Shaw(?).

But this Edward Williams is described as an engineer not a horseman.
