as Ellen Roberts age 35 born Islington, London married to Robert Parry also 35

« on: Thursday 27 July 06 11:12 BST (UK)  »
I am trying to trace the PARRY family

Unfortunately i am sadly lacking on information

the information i have is.....

Dr. Robert Hilton Parry married Ellen Roberts and together they had 5 children

1) Robert Parry (went on to marry a Hilda, and have 2 unknown children)

2) William Hilton Parry (apparently last known around church street?? caernarven, had 2 children both unknown as to names or gender)

3) Enid Parry (married a robert thomas, and had 2 children "Nefrida" and "Robert Garyn")

4) Olga Dilys Parry (born in the quarter of Jun 1891  in Caernarven District. She married a Robert Burrell and had 3 children "john" "ellen" and an unknown child.)

5) Dr. T Geraint Parry (no further information known)

I have no other dates or locations for any of these people, any help is greatfully received.

Olga is clearly the link to bring forth the other information.... could some nice kind person find them on the 1891 & 1901 census' please?

i have very limited information and am trying to find ancestors of a Mary Watkins Rees she married a William Roberts and together they had 7 children that i know of (listed below )....i unfortunately dont have any dates for her or her children but believe she was from machynlleth.
Her eldest granddaughter (from margaret) was born in 1881 so we're probably talking about her birth being around the 1820's

Ellen Roberts
William Rees Roberts
Griffith Roberts
Grace Roberts
Kathreen Roberts

hope you can help.

i've been looking at the 1881 census and at RG11 5382/31 pg2  it shows a john and mary bowen as visitors, can anyone confirm that mary is john and elizabeth's child?

i dont have any details of Elizabeth's (nee Davies) family unfortunately.

i have a vaige note that they had a child called mary but i have no dates and would love to be able to confirm this.

i have looked on the BMD and the only marriage i can find for mary and john is in Q.Dec 1872....what was the legal marrying age as 12 and 13 seems awfully young, can anyone find a marriage that i have missed?

i also believed there were two other children jane is shown but annie (no dates known) and john (the one i was initally searching for.... born 22 apr 1862) are not to be found.

i hope you can help!
