1861 Ruabon/Wrexham/Wales ECCLESTON
« on: Friday 23 July 04 03:43 BST (UK) »
I am looking for any ECCLESTON family members that appear in the 1861 Census for the Ruabon, Wrexham, Wales area.

I know that Thomas Eccleston married Mary Ellen Roberts in 1865 in Ruabon and a John Eccleston married (?) in 1861 in the area.

I can't find the 1861 census for this area anywhere.
Thank you!
Eccleston, Roberts, Mitchell, Chatburn

Mary as you know married Thomas Eccleston and they had a lot of children.  I note this post was made July so you may now have more details on the Eccleston family.  The above was just copied and pasted from notes on my own family tree, but I do have other details, just not so easy to send!  Jenny

Hello Shelley

I noted your interest in the name Eccleston in the Wrexham area and thought you might like to take a look at the Eccleston entries on my website which is based on names from the north-east Wales area.
