Mary Jones 1832-1871
« on: Wednesday 08 November 17 16:35 GMT (UK) »
Hi
I wonder if anyone can help.
I've hit a brick wall trying to find out my 2 x great grandmothers parents.
Mary Jones was born in 1832 Holywell Flintshire Wales, and she married Joshua Jennings 24 April 1852 in Clywd, Holywell, Flintshire, Wales.
All I know is Holywell is on the census. Jones is a too common name for those in Wales.
She died 28 MAR 1871 Dalton in Furness, Ulverston, Lancashire.
Any information about her life before she married Joshua would be great.
What I really would love to know is her parents and any siblings she may have had.
Kind thanks
Barbz

Hi,

With such a widespread common name as Jones..you REALLY need the info from marriage of Mary to help identify on census.

Name of father, witnesses & address can help greatly to know if following correct family.

There maybe no connection but 1871 census with Joshua is a visitor Leah Hughes, married age 33, b Holywell.  I think there is a possibility she maybe sister to Mary.

Possible

1841 - https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:M77T-G27

Mary is not with this family in 1851, possibly working. https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SG86-4RJ

Do you have her in 1861? Know some census is missing in this area in 1861.

Hi
Mary and Joshua has 3 boys, David Martin Jennings, John Jones Jennings, and Thomas Robert Jennings.

David was born in Holywell. March 1855.
John was born in Dalton in Furness, Lancashire. April 1859.
Thomas was born in Bagillt, Holywell. 20 Jul 1861.

Death: 28 MAR 1871 Dalton in Furness, Ulverston, Lancashire, England

I have no census records, from the above you can see she moved about a lot.

Kind regards
Barbz

Obtaining the 1852 Marriage Certificate is absolutely essential as North Wales BMD lists the Marriage as a "Holywell Civil Marriage" which means that there is no chance of anyone doing a "look up" for you as it did not take place in any of the local Parish Churches.
