 I looked at some books on the Wrexham area and found a few refs to Taylors.
Palmers History of Wrexham.
The Lamb, a building in High St was owned by William Taylor, gent. Almost certainly Mr W Taylor , Coed Aben, Abenbury who died 1784, he was the brother of Robert Taylor.
Encyclopedia of Wrexham
Coed Aben. An important farm in the township of Abenbury Fawr.148 acres. For most of the 18th and 19th century it was tenanted by a family named Taylor.

Going back as far as 1645 there is mention of an Edward Taylor of Pickhill. who was possibly a Parliamentarian.
 If any one has more info then please add to this.

Well I don't know how to thank you for all this work it has been wonderful to make the breakthrough after all the years of looking.  William certainly seems right, William and Sarah are 'family names'.  The family doesn't seem to have moved about much and that is a bonus.  What a Christmas present.  Thanks again and please have a good break.  You've earned it.
Your next post has just arrived, can't keep up with you!  I was just going to review the book you sent a copy of earlier, but haven't ywet had chance.  Does Lamb sound like a pub?? Lots to keep me busy.  Thanks again

I have to say I am as puzzled as you are by these apparent Twins,Martha and Margaret Taylor and the non appearance in the same Quarter and Year in the GRO Birth Index.Martha Taylor appears in the October Quarter of 1844,and there are two Margaret Taylors in the October Quarter of 1845.

 Coming back to the `twins`
Dec 13 1843 Margaret and Martha were both baptised at St Giles Wrexham
daughters of Mary Taylor, no father named. They are in seperate entries .

In Isycoed Marriages 1863 Apr 11.
John Taylor 24 b Red Wither, father Edward Griffiths
Ann Mottersham 22 sp Isycoed. father Sam Mottisher (Mottershead ? )

Isycoed Baptisms
1863 June 7 Mary d/o John and Ann Taylor. Isycoed.
1865 Feb 25 Ermine ??              “   
1867 May 19 Joseph               "

This John Taylor is the correct age for John with Elizabeth in 1851. As John was born before the `twins`, and Mary Taylor  marries Edward Griffiths in 1852 at St Giles Wrexham,  it looks like Edward Griffiths could be also the father of Margaret and Martha. :)

Before you all point out that the baptisms of the twins  seem to be before the possible birth index entries,  :D  I can`t find then in 1843 so will re-check again when I`m in the Museum.. ;)

I am hoping someone sees this. I just got to this part of my Genealogy. I am descended from this Taylor family. I was wondering what you all had on James Taylor and Elizabeth Evans or their parents.

Hi,
Which of James and Elizabeth's children are you descended from? I am from his daughter (Anna) Maria who married Richard Thomas and lived in Alford Cheshire til her death in 1915. I do have lots of info on James and Elizabeth but sadly nothing concrete on Elizabeth's parentage.

I am from her brother George. He married Rachel Parker. They lived in Birkenhead Cheshire. He died in 1891. Their daughter Kate Taylor married James Radley in 1881 and one of their granddaughters was my grandmother.
I haven't found anything on Elizabeth either. The census records give 2 places she could have been born. I think James Taylor's dad was a William Taylor.  A tailor from Abenbury Fawr. But I can't find anything solid on the mother or siblings or grandparents etc. Do you have anything on James' side?
