1911 census
« on: Friday 13 October 17 17:52 BST (UK) »
Would anyone be so kind and inform me the family of Howell and Margaret Davies. Either Commercial Street Blaenllechau or Brynteg Terrace Ferndale in 1911 census The reason being that my late uncle informed me that my aunt Phoebe Jane Davies married a William Enoch . But according to research Phoebe Jane married a Lewis Enoch and in an obituary Phoebe is down as widow of Lewis Enoch. In both 1891 and 1901 census there is no Phoebe but there is a May. Just dying to establish, where did Phoebe come from, were they just able to change names someway. Any assistance would be great. Regards Eirwen

According to my records May was born 1894/95.  Have never found a birth for a Phoebe Jane Davis. Thought at first they might have been twins   But no joy there either. May according to census born Swansea Eirwen Regards

Hi This Phoebe is mine ,I have the obituary. The problem I have that Phoebe Jane does not appear in any of the census I have looked at for the Davis family . The only daughter of the same age is May. So where did Phoebe Jane come from. Cannot find the birth of a May Dals whose mother was Margaret Williams Completly stumped on this. . Regards Eirwen.

Hi I have. The marriage birth and death certificates of Pheobe Jane  my late Aunt. Was always known as Auntie May and in 1891 and 1901 census down as May. According to family May married Lewis Enoch but again according to family she married William Enoch . I visited them at 3 Hoel Llechau in Wattsown I visited them there known as aunt May and Uncle Enoch. Just trying to establish why census and family say May but all certificates say Pheobe Jane..Expect I will never know.Eirwen
