1851 Census Lookup Please - GWATKIN
« on: Saturday 03 February 07 21:01 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to track down John Gwatkin and his wife Maryann (or Mary Anne, or Mary Ann - I have seen all 3 used for her).

They were married in Chepstow in 1850, and had sons there in 1853 and 1855, but I couldn't find them there in the 1851 census records.  So, I wondered whether they strayed over the border for the census...

On his 1953 son's birth certificate, John is described as builder/surveyer.

Thanks!

Thank you - and all others like you - f0r being so willing to help. I also posted a general inquiry on the Monmouthshire page and someone found them in 1851 as John G. Watkin and Mary Ann G. Watkin - no wonder I coun't find them using a Gwatkin search!
