1901 Census - Grayson ??
« on: Thursday 13 July 17 13:01 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I am working on an ancestor ROBERT JONES b Flintshire about 1844. He was married to Priscilla Brailsford.
He was a copper smelter and possibly moved with his family to L'pool where he got married in 1873.

On the 1901 census it says he was born in Grayson, Flintshire - has anybody heard of this as it may help me to whittle down his parents/grandparents as clearly lots of Jones' to research!

Thanks

Robert Jones, Bolier Maker
13 Jul 1873, St Nicholas, Lancashire
Father - Joseph Jones, Boiler Maker
Spouse - Priscilla Brellisford
Spouse's father - Joseph Brellisford, Smelter
Wits - Richard and Mary Hill

Yep that's my Robert Jones. So the "Grayson", Flintshire is a red herring on the 1901 census ( possibly a typo) ?

Think it is a very good possible Maureen, well spotted.

This is the bapt of Robert of this family https://familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:KCR8-YZH

Register states, Born 18 April, same address as 1851 father occ boilermaker.

Mothers maiden name Bennion for the girls, not locating Robert on GRO, there is a marriage registered in Great Boughton for these parents.

There's this baptism

Sorry, Cas I didn't see that you might have found them. There was no red warning either  :-\

Ohh thank you all. The Boiler maker is the clue I think as they all continued in that line of work when they arrived in Liverpool.

Is there a marriage cert anywhere for Joseph & Elizabeth or possibly even their birth records?

Cheers  :)
