Thank you Mabel! Do you have any idea on how to find Edwin's parentage? Because I cannot find one on Bmd or Ancestry.
Gloucestershire: Beard (of Saul and Redbrook)
Montgomeryshire/Powys: Evans (Llanfyllin)
McLaughlin (Midwest United States)
O'Shaughnessy (Ireland- County Munster?)

Hi
Here's the marriage at Wolverhampton St James 8.8.1852
Edwin Beards 22 tin man Union St  s of John  Beard tin man
Ann Muchell 19 Union St  Jesse Muchall nail maker

Ann made a cross
wit James Beards and Elizabeth Jones.

1851 Sun St Wolverhampton
John Beard 45 shearer of iron Saul Glouc
Ann 31 wife  Bilston
Edwin 21 shearer if iron Glouc Redbrook
James  19 ditto
Mariann Simms wife's daughter 14 Bilston

John had remarried Ann Simms Dec 1850 at Wolverhampton registration district.Not sure which church.

1841 Newlands Redbrook Glouc
John Beard 40 shearer n
Susannah 65 n
Edwin 12 n
James 10 n

I'd guess John's second wife was Jane Wilton married Newland 25.3.1833
wit David Pike and Richard Morgan
She was buried 13.1.1834 age 29

First wife Ann was buried 21.1.1833 w if John Beard at Newland age 26 of Redbrook.
So I would go for a first marriage at St Briavels to Ann Wilton 16.11.1828
wit Sarah Hisburn? Thomas ?

John signed  the first marriage but manages a very shakey signature on the second.
Ann Wilton 13.10.1805 at  Brimpsfield d o Bartley and Lucy Ann Wilton
John Beard so Thomas and Sussannh at Saul 3.4.1800.

Buying that third marriage cert should confirm his Dad although that Susanna with him on the 1841 census would do for me.
Thomas buried Newlands of Redbrook 9.10.1833 age 62

ps found Edwin's baptism at the Non conf Wesleyian Chapel at Monmouth 4 Sep 1829 born 20 Aug 1829 of parish of Newland Gloucestershire
James same chapel 3/18 Oct 1831 shearer Rebrook Newland.
