Merthyr Tydfil baptism request
« on: Wednesday 30 August 06 16:09 BST (UK) »


I have been looking for the maiden name of my gr-gr-gr-grandmother for some time. By 1841 she (plus husband and children) is living in Brecon St Mary's (HO107/1317/5/6/4) as:
Margaret Jones, 50, not born in county

In 1851, she is still in Brecon St Mary's with her son (HO107/2489/413/10):
Margaret Jones, head, widow, 60, b. Merthy Tydfil, Glamorgan

I have today received information that her parents might have been:
John Williams of Merthyr Tydfil who married Mary Powell in 1778-ish.

So, is there a Margaret Williams baptised around 1791 in Merthyr Tydfil with parents John and Mary? I would expect she is Church of England as her son later becomes a CofE clergyman, although I wish these names were a bit more distinctive!

Many thanks
