Evening,

A big thanks to all those who've gone to the trouble of helping me out! This really has helped me out loads!!

A quick question though.....

I know they are both Irish but a Joseph Bennett married a Johannah Bedley in Swansea in Q1 1886.

Ref: Vol 11a, page 816


How did you manage to find this out?!! I've been puzzling over how to determine spouse's maiden names via the BMD. I've had some limited success due to in-laws residing with their offspring.

How were you able to find the matching entry for the female partner???? Am I missing something relatively straightforward here? Let's put it down to inexperience eh? Ha ha.

Thanks again for the help!!

Paul,

On Ancestry free BMD:

I punched in "Joseph Bennett", "Swansea, Glamorgan" - an educated guess; and a few years plus/minus before their first child - another educated guess

Went through the results and the was a Joseph Bennett on the same page as a Johanna Bedley.

I am not saying this is the correct marriage. That's for you to decide. But it's a good pointer, I think.
