This is first time I have come across doodles on the census - it made me smile. :)

My john Campbell and Catherine McDonald and kids went on this boat looking for info on john and Catherine
If you go to the passenger list supplied in reply#1, you will see your couple are not listed on this ship.
Perhaps they sailed in a different year?

Thanks Osprey, that is much the same information as I have come up with following through from the 1841 census you suggested. The father Owen died and his wife Ann remarried.
Good to see your work confirms my direction.

There's this possible Owen from 1841 who is shown as labourer but neighbours are coppermen so in the right area.

That census looks the most promising so far. I will do some work with that and see where it leads.

My problem is, I can't find him on the census.
At the time of his marriage he is living in Skewen, so I thought I might find him there in 1861.
He and his wife emigrated to Australia in 1864.

Thanks Osprey. I had already wondered about Owen, but it hasn't help me find Henry.

Handwriting Deciphering & Recognition / Groom's father?

This snip is from the Aug 1862 marriage of  Henry Davies to Mary Ann Hopkins in Neath, Glamorgan.
Can anyone help with the name of the groom’s father? I am having a hard time finding Henry before 1862.

Obviously the miner, Hugh Griffiths, with an age two years out, will not be your Hugh. :)
