Title: 1861 look up please.
Post by: dwalin on Wednesday 05 October 05 12:27 BST (UK)

hi, i have been looking for a marraige for two ancesters a 
john leighton to a mary lloydi thought the marraige would be in wales however the only marriage i can come up with is a

john layton(leighton has been mispelt like this many times.and a
elizabeth lloyd.on the 17oct 1854 in aston juxta?
i know people are thinking well thats not a mary even .but my gggranma was named mary elizabeth ,wondering if she could of been named after someone.(worth a look)
the reason im asking for a look up is i thought if the john layton and mary lloyd are born from england i can rule them out as im pretty sure john was welsh from holywell.(but you never can be sure with ancesters)
if this is my john ?hewould of been born 1815/18 in baggilt wales.hope this makes sense thanks. ;D

There is one John Layton in the 1861 england census born in Wales, but he is on a boat called the Olive Branch.

John Layton born 1829 Holywell, Flintshire , Wales Ships mate.

Ok then, this must be him.

John Leighton born 1816 Bagillth, wales. coal miner

Elizabeth daughter 1839

Thomas son 1845

They are  in Byers Green, Durham

There is no wife there but it says he is married not widowed, so she must be elsewhere! Typical!!!
