Miria Davies Census/death look up
« on: Saturday 19 August 17 14:48 BST (UK) »
Hi all,
         I'd like to submit a request to look up my 2nd great aunt Miria Davies. Miria (according to 1901 census; Source Citation Class: RG13; Piece: 5011; Folio: 5; Page: 2. but could possibly be Maria) was born in Pontypridd in 1886. I can't find no census record, marriage or death records for her. I would assume she got married so the surname has changed hence not finding a death record or marriage record but I would have thought I'd find a 1891 census info for her. Her parents were William Davies and Sarah Elizabeth Davies. Any help on this subject would be gratefully received.
                                                                            Regards.
Parker

What name is on her birth registration.   Have you looked for her with Sarah's parents in 1891

There is a random 3 yr old MAry H Davies, bn Ponypridd on 1881, as a niece in a household. So you may need to investigate her to see if she is the same person as the MAry H in 1891.
William and Sarah are old enough to have been married before - have you got their marriage cert? Were either widowed? In which case Mary H could be Williams from a first marriage, and be 13/15 in 1881.
In which case, Miria, must be somewhere else on 1891, as not with her parents.

almost definitely Maria

Given the other names, mmn is Crockett. There's a Maria Davies with that mmn b Q4 1875 in Pontypridd

Sarah Crockett & William Davies marry Pontypridd Q4 1874

sorry - just realised ages are all out, as yours was b 1886. However - still Maria!

There are two further Maria Davies with mmn Crockett - b 1883 and 1885 in Pontypridd. I can only assume the first two died (can see potential registrations) and the name kept being used.
