Marriage - Samuel Rowley and Frances Evans *COMPLETED*
« on: Saturday 10 August 13 20:51 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I wonder if anyone would be able to look for a marriage between Samuel Rowley and Frances Evans please. They lived in Cefn Mawr/Ruabon. In the 1851 census Samuel is living with Sarah who he remarried in 1843, after Frances died in 1842, aged 38.
Previously I had found baptisms for three of their children:
Edward Rowley - 15 Feb 1829
Jane Rowley - 10 Apr 1831
John Ellis Rowley - 13 May 1833
All baptised at Wesleyan Methodist Wrexham (so the records state). They all say son/dau of Samuel Rowley of Cefn in Ruabon, collier, and of Frances, his wife, daughter of Edward and Martha Evans.

I have recently found an entry on OpenChurchNetwork for an Ann Rowley, daughter of Samuel and Frances, who died aged 2 in 1824.

So I think they may have married around 1822? Samuel was from Broseley in Shropshire, but I am assuming (!) that they would have married in or around Ruabon.
If anyone spots any information about the baptism of Frances Evans, about 1804, that would also be greatly appreciated!

Thank you for your interest!

Toffee   :)

Just used my last free credits on FindMyPast to have a little look - mistranscribed as 1920 on there too, but it is clearly 1820 on the image. Frances is described as of the parish of Ruabon, so definitely them. She must have been very young!  :o
Thanks again Carole!
