I said it was the only one showing and not necessarily him  -  and the initials on that census are As not S - see Rosie's clip.
How do you know that this is the correct family?

Yes - already discussed that, Rosie  :)


I think it is Llandegla - very feint but it's written Glandegla.

If you find a marriage for him, it would give his father.

I see that I've looked at that page before!

I think the replies were coming thick and fast :)

I'll have a look for the marriage.

Do you think there is any chance that we can go back another generation ?
Thank you.

I've been having a look before he married. I don't think the 1841 you have is correct as he's William A Roberts.

Not found anything in Llanarmon yn Ial. I'll keep looking for a David Roberts, miner/labourer in that area.
