Find relatives
« on: Friday 29 April 16 13:02 BST (UK) »
I am trying to find William S Davies and his parents. I believe he was from Mynyddygarreg, Kidwelly, Carmarthenshire born about 1907.
He married Annie Megan Beynon in Carmarthen in 1941, she was from Llandilofawr, Carmarthenshire.

Trying to find a right "Davies" is a nightmare.

Does the marriage certificate give any further information on William & his father.  Who were the witnesses.

The marriage certificate would be worth purchasing. Once you know William's father's name you will have a better chance of locating the family in the 1911 census. As a 4 year old it is likely that he will be at home with his parents and maybe siblings.

First of all, thank you for your attention.
The Annie Megan Davies in Aberdare is wrong, I don't believe her or her husband ever left Carmarthenshire.
The "S" second name of William Davies I am not sure (Heard it mentioned a few times).
The Mynyddygarreg connection is because it is believed their children wet to school there.
To try and get a birth or marriage certificate would not be easy, there really are thousands of William Davies' to choose from. There are hundreds of Beynons' as well.
As I am led to believe both William and Megan were working in agriculture.

Thanks again
