Flintshire / Phoenix family Hope/Cefn Y Bedd/Cymau/Gwersyllt
« on: Wednesday 18 October 23 12:39 BST (UK)  »
Hello all.
I was wondering if anyone could help..........  I'm doing the family tree of a family friend as a gift for a special birthday and I am so stuck.  The Phoenix/Phenix/Fenix (variety of spellings as spelt as it is said I think) family I'm trying to find on the Census for 1861 are as follows: -
Edward Phoenix born 1799 in Wrexham, Denbigshire
Elizabeth Phoenix born about 1793 although could have been about 1796 in Hope, Flintshire
Robert Phoenix born 1832 in Hope, Flintshire
Edward Phoenix born 1834 in Hope, Flintshire
Mary Anne Phoenix born 1838 in Hope, Flintshire
Ithell Phoenix born 1841 in Gwersyllt, Denbighshire (Ithell has been transcribed as Athell/Ethell etc)
There are two other daughters but they were already married in 1861.
In 1851 they lived in Cefn Y Bedd as a family.  No record of them there in 1861 and I have looked all through the Census for that area.  By 1871 Elizabeth was a widow and living back in Cefn Y Bedd with son Robert.  Same in 1881.  I am not sure if Edward senior died at the Union Workhouse in 1857.  Have searched on Find my Past and Ancestry, no luck at all.  Anyone know of this family please?

Any help with the Wrexham 1841 census please?  I'm looking for Joseph Williams 1792-1849 and his wife Margaret Williams 1796-1848 who were living in Gresford/Rossett in 1841.  Would like to know names of their children please?  Thanks to anyone able to assist with this.

I am so stuck.  Half of the Eryrys Census for 1861 is missing, and it would be the half I probably need to see.  Can anyone help please?  This Edward Evans was born circa 1852/1853 - I don't think 1854 but possible.  Have his marriage record to Mary Anne Hughes in 1876 but his dad was listed as Robert Jones, his residence Blaen Y Nant.  The witnesses were John Jones and Hannah Evans.  I saw a marriage record in 1878 for a John Jones who also lived at Blaen Y Nant and his dad was listed as Robert Jones too, so was thinking they may have been half brothers, about 3-5 years between them.  I have no idea of the name of Edward's mother.  I've seen another thread where they were asking about an Edward Evans born in 1796, well my particular Edward's wife was his granddaughter, her mum being Hannah Evans, born approx 1833 who married Edward Hughes.  Any help would be much appreciated.
