Have you found the family on any of the other census?  Birth? Marriage? death records?

Could you please let us know exactly what help you need? :)

Edward G, Davies was born in Llandrinio in 1829and was baptised August 9th 1829 in Llandrinio. He also had a brother Thomas baptised February 20th 1831 also in Llandrinio.Thier parents were Edward and Elizabeth Davies, Shop keepers and Grocers,I then appear to lose all trace of the family. I can find no trace of of Edward  and Elizabeth Davies, but i find Edward  G. and his wife Martha A. Davies at Top Shop, Churchstoke. They have eleven children Mary Elizabeth4/4/1854, William1/5/1855 b. Buttington, Ann28/3/1857 b. Buttington,The rest of the family born Churchstoke.Edward George13/11/1861, Francis John 6/4/1860, Martha Selina 4/3/1863,Sarah Annutt14/5/1867 Margret2/10/1869, Louisa21/10/1871, Thomas Aeron7/10/1873 and Thomas Owen Davies1877. I then come across the family in 1901 living at 1 Chapel Street, Llanwchaiarn, Newtown.At this time father Edward George Davies ,senior was a Drapers Warehouseman aged 71 years old.I can find no trace of the marriage, No trace of his parents or thier death. I can find no trace of Edward G. and his wife Martha A. Davies death and I have some fairly blank periods in between from 1831 to 1870 . Can anyone please help me fill in the gaps.  Many thanks.

Hi Eric

You may wish to consider the following possibilities from  Freebmd :

Marriage:  Edward George Davies & Martha Anne Davies
                 Qtr ended Jun 1853  Ref: Montgomery 11b/425

Deaths:     Edward George Davies (age 74)
                 Qtr ended Jun 1904  Ref: Newtown 11b/125

                 Martha Ann Davies (age 65 ??)
                 Qtr ended Mar 1895  Ref: Forden 11b/149

There is no guarantee that these are all your family. Copy certificates may be ordered via www.pro.gov.uk or from other sources.

I noticed in your message of 31/1/06 that you have the youngest of Edward & Martha's children as Thomas Owen b. 1877.  From the 1881 census, the name appears as ALFRED OWEN DAVIES age 4.

Good luck
Stan.
