Can't seem to attach Mary Ann's marriage certificate but the job description for her father, Thomas, does look like refiner.  What would a refiner be?

Hi Rosie,

Looks like you're correct in that her parents are Thomas & Mary.  Received her marriage certificate today which confirmed her father as a Thomas.  When I search for her birth on freeBMD (in 1859 in Llanelly), I get two entries for a Mary Ann Davies, one being born in September & another in December.  Think it'll be a matter of ordering both certificates & seeing which one has Thomas & Mary on the certificate?

Thanks Rosie for all the info/help.  Had her birth as 1859 based on her age in various census records.  With the other records, it looks like it's come down to how I was spelling the names on freeBMD vs. the slightly different spellings on there.  Have ordered the marriage & death certificates.

Thanks for the info, Bertha would be my great-grandmother.  Have found the 1881 census for Ezekiel.  I do have a marriage certificate hint that comes up for him in 1882 in Bedwelty but it's with a different woman.

Am trying to gather more details etc on my 2x great-grandmother, Mary Ann Lloyd (nee Davies).  Have got the name correct as she appears on my great-grandmother birth certificate as well as some census records which suggests she was born around 1859 in Llanelly.  When I try looking her up on freebmd, there seems to be a few Mary Ann Davies' born 1859 in Llanelly.  Don't know if this would be double entries or there happened to be several Mary Ann Davies born at the same time in the same area.

I'm also struggling to find any marriage certificates (she married Ezekiel Lloyd) or death certificates for her.

Any help or suggestions would be much appreciated.

Am trying to work out the exact Date of Birth for what would be my 2x great-grandfather.  Can make out August 1860 but can't make out the exact date - hopefully birth certificate is attached.  Also,  trying to make out what the occupation of his father is, can't seem to read it properly.

Many thanks,


Thanks all.  Currently looks like Frank Hibbs & Janette are the likely culprits but not sure why they called themselves cousins as nothing with their surnames even remotely related to me great-grandmother.

Hi all,

Hope this is the right area to ask.  My dad & I are going through some of grandfather's old photos, letters etc.  Amongst his things was a letter to my great-grandmother congratulating her on the birth of my grandfather from a cousin Frank & looks like a cousin Janet (but no surname).  We're struggling to match the first names to anyone on my tree.

There is an address (101 Southampton Avenue, Berkeley, California) on the letter plus a date (15th October 1925) so was wondering if there's a way of finding out a full name of who was living there at the time?

Many thanks,
