Thanks for looking Gadget it's much appreciated, researching Louie is a nightmare  ???

Her Marriage states her surname is Smith.
Husbands Military record states it's Lock.
On the birth index for her two daughters it states mother's maiden name Lock.
So I just don't know where to look next as there doesn't appear to be a Dauval Smith on any Census.

Just wondering whether you might put a query on the Travelling People board with a link to this thread. Member Steve G ( http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?action=profile;u=34019 )
is very knowledgeable and has a website that might help.

If you can't, I'll certainly added it for you  :)

If you copy this link and paste it into your post on the other board, it should work

Just to add that the Louie on the 1901, born Shropshire, fits the age on the marriage entry. that you've given on the other thread.

I sent an e-mail to the Anglesey Archive Friday and received a very quick reply this morning (Well done Anglesey Archive  :)) with the same details you found DragonT, could I ask where you got the information from? Is there any witness names on the record?

As I mentioned the details are from an index of Anglesey marriages post 1837 and there are no witness names in the transcriptions.

I've seen your earlier post concerning this family on the Travelling people section of Rootschat (http://www.rootschat.com/forum/index.php?topic=775539.0 ) and I've searched for other Anglesey records for them.

I think I have found Harold Lock's birth registration - with the name of Harold Denis Bosswell!
Harold Denis son of John Bosswell & Eliza Pritchard 23 Apr 1892, Llangadwalader. The surname is also Bosswell on FreeBMD - Jun 1892, Bangor 11b 453.

It looks like the following are the siblings of Harold whose births were registered on Anglesey.

Gerald Frasker son of John Boswell & Eliza Pritchard 7 Mar 1890, Llangefni
Ronald son of John Boswell & Eliza Pritchard 21 Jun 1900 Llandysilio
Eliza Dorothy dau of John Boswell & Eliza Pritchard 13 Dec 1902 Llanfair PG
Eliza Dorothy dau of John Boswell & Eliza Pritchard 03 Dec 1904 Holyhead

I'll also check for other marriages and death registrations.
Anglesey - Thomas:
Bodedern, Heneglwys, Llanfair-yn-Neubwll.
Anglesey - Jones:
Llanfaethlu, Llanfair-yn-Neubwll, Rhoscolyn.
Anglesey - Parry:Llanfair-yn-Neubwll.
Anglesey - Lewis:Llanbadrig.
Anglesey - Willins & Tyran/Tyrer

Caernarvonshire - Evans and Lewis:Llanberis.

Denbighshire - Jenkins:Llandynan, Llantysilio, Cerrigydrudion.
Denbighshire - Jones:Rhos, Ruabon.
Denbighshire - Jones:Henllan

Flintshire - Mathews:Northop
