ok I have now found the marriage certificate, it wasn't Edward that was the sailor but it was Robert!

Edward was recorded as being deceased at the time of marriage and a labourer

the witnesses where William and ellen cauldwell

I found an early  census entry with Edward as a labourer but passed over it at the time. Not sure if I can re-find it.

so can we back step a bit please, how did you derive at Robert davies? what is your link, ive got to ask this seeing as the info and the way you have interpreted the marriage certificate was incorrect, and before spending too much time trying to find your info, would rather double check that you haven't misread other cencus/certificates

Hi Dawn Robert Davies was my gt grandfather, the family said he was born in Denbigh he moved to Liverpool and married Annie Williams, that's why I a trying find more about his family as very little is known about him.
I know his father was Edward and that's as far as I have got, as you can imagine Davies in Wales is a minefield to find.

Thanks
Allan
