Marriage look up if possible please Clwyd FHS Centre
« on: Saturday 11 April 09 15:20 BST (UK) »
Hello
 I am trying to find a possible second marriage for  Robert Povah born 1788 in Wrexham.
 His first marriage was in  Wrexham 23 Jun1803 at St Giles, to Mary Roberts born 1786, they had 4 children Samuel, John, Watkin and William, they were all baptized 5 March 1810.

We think his second wife was also named Mary born 1796 Wrexham, and they had two children that we know of, Thomas born  1821 Oswestry and Eliza born 1826 Wrexham, they were on the Wrexham 1841 census.

We think its a new wife because of the big gap between children. so I guess I need to find a death for Mary between 1810 and 1821 and a marriage about the same time.

I would like to think the couple on the 1841 census was the couple that married in 1803 as that would mean I have found a cousin.

 We really would apreciate any help you can give or if you have time when next at the FHS centre at Cefn, to check the registers.
                              Kind regards Sue  :)

Hello Sue, the only burial I could see in Wrexham for a Mary Povah between 1813 / 21.
Mary Povah. Wrexham Abbot. March 14 1816. Age 60 years.

I couldn't see a marriage for a Robert Povah between those years.

Paul.

Hello Paul
   Thank you so much for looking that up for me, I really do appreciate it.
 It could well be the same couple in 1841 we just can not be sure,  I really don't know how I will find out or what to do next.
                               Thank you again for your time and help 
                                            Kind regards Sue
