Denbighshire Lookup Requests / Re: Owen Williams born 1827 Llanrwst
« on: Thursday 30 April 09 13:00 BST (UK)  »
Thanks Paul

Owen Williams stated he was born in Gwytherin in 1851, Henllan in 1861, Denbigh in 1871,Gwytherin in 1881 and Llanrwst in 1891 and 1901 so it's anyones guess I'm afraid.

From 1841 he lived in Henllan/Trefnant until his death on 8th August 1906 and had four children, Elizabeth 1857, Robert, my great grandfather, 1859, John 1862 and Edward 1864 all registered at birth in Green, Denbigh.

On the 1841 Henllan census his age is recorded as 10, working as a servant on Acer Las farm.

This is my first post and I apologise if these details should have been in the original inquiry.   ::)

Thanks for looking that up.

 I had wondered if that was the right Robert Williams and he had remarried by 1851 which might explain why Owen Williams was working away for ten years.

  From what I can find on IGI his first wife's name was Jane Morris and some of their childrens' births are in the records there's no sign of Owen.

Hi Gadget,

Thank you. Robert Williams was a farmer and it doesn't state on the cert that he was deceased.

Hi Paul

On the 1851 census Owen Williams' birthplace is Gwytherin. He was married to Elizabeth Jones in Denbigh on the 27th April1855.

Denbighshire Lookup Requests / Owen Williams born 1827 **COMPLETED**
« on: Thursday 23 April 09 20:04 BST (UK)  »
I'm looking for the parents of my great, great grandfather Owen Williams, born 2nd June 1827(his date of birth on his gravestone in Trefnant). His father's name is Robert Williams on his marriage certificate and one of the witnesses is Edward Williams, possibly his brother. Owen was a servant for William and Elizabeth Williams  in Henllan on the 1841 and 1851 census and there's no sign of his parents there. I've also looked through quite a few Denbighshire parishes on IGI. Any help on this would be very welcome as I'm truly stuck.
