Someone has an anc tree with the name as Hannah Rebecca June 1873 - Ynysybwl, South Wales  ???

The source record they give doesn't quite tally - Rebecca Edwards - Q3 - 1874 - Pontypridd Glamorgan - 11a 350

I didn't see a birth under Hannah Rebecca Edwards in 1873 or 1874  :-\

They also give the father as Edmund - 18 March 1844 - Eglwysilan, Glamorgan, Wales
passed away December 1921 - Ynysybwl, Glamorgan

If this is not you, it would give a contact to compare notes.


Sandra

Possibly they believe she was the Hannah REBEKKA Thomas baptism 30th September 1874 Gelligaer  baptised at 11 months old to Lewis occ Butcher Mother Elizabeth?

Thankyou so much for all your help everyone. It is so much appreciated. This has given me more to work on. I know that she did in fact marry Thomas Thomas, so maybe what I do need to do is order the marriage certificate, so that I can identify the father 's surname. I will let you know how I get on . Happy New Year!

Furthermore, I think her birth may be 1875 according to the 1901 census.

Hi I possibly think Edmund also used Edward as his christian name, the baptism shown above for him 18th March 1844 Eglwysilan had parents James & Rebecca, they appear to marry 27th November 1843 Eglwysilan Rebecca Leigh Father Daniel Leigh James Edwards Father Edward Edwards

Thankyou for this. I know I am indeed connected through Rebecca Leigh as I have connected with her through my DNA matches. I was wondering if Edward and Edmund were one of the same. The first boy of Rebecca and Thomas Thomas was called Edmund and the second boy was James, would this match with Welsh naming systems?

 :) A rethink required, James and Rebecca also had a son EDWARD Edwards 16th March 1846 Eglwysilan, this is the one I believe married Mary Richards, so where did Edmund 1844 get to?

Also the gentleman who officiated over the marriage of James Edwards & Rebecca Leigh was an Edmund Leigh occ Curate.
