Wales Census - WATTS
« on: Saturday 21 January 12 13:19 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for James Watts b. abt 1820, his wife Elizabeth (birth unknown - 1820's), and their children (born in Pontypool, Monmouthshire): Francis b.1849, Joseph b.1850, Martha b.1851, Charlotte b.1853, William b.1855, Mary Ann b.1860, Barbara b.1864. They should be living in Pontypool (Pontnewynydd).

James died in 1874, and Elizabeth emigrated in 1876 along with Martha, Mary Ann and Barbara.

Any help appreciated
Mell

Thankyou! I wonder if John Williams is a relative of Elizabeth (nee Williams). The birth in Corfu is interesting (perhaps a military connection).
