Enoch Lewis born Glascwm, Radnorshsire
« on: Tuesday 19 May 15 15:49 BST (UK) »
I am hoping one of you kind people can help me to find out about Enoch Lewis. 

Enoch was born about 1847 in Glascwm, Radnorshire, the son of Thomas Lewis and Mary Ann Davis. His siblings were Sophia, Levia, Thomas, John, William, James, Eliza and George

In 1911 (census) he was working on is nephews farm (Guidfa Farm, Penybont (Crossgates), Radnorshire where it states he was 64 and married.  I would like to know where he lived during his lifetime (I have looked on the cesuses but have been unable to find him) and also who he married and if he had any children.

Possible marriage

Oct/Nov/Dec 1868
Bedwelty
11a 120
Enoch Lewis / Abigail Jones on same page

Or, in view of the fact she is staying with a James family after having the baby, and has appeared as Abigail Ann somewhere,  I wondered if she is the "Anne" from this marriage -
Oct/Nov/Dec 1867
Aberayon
11b 118
Enoch Lewis / Anne James on same page

Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
