The 1854 Wrexham pairing is Abel(in other records Euble) Griffiths and Sarah Griffiths.
The children from the family I identified have a mmn Griffiths,and Euble is a widower in 1861.He re-marries a Sarah,this time Davies,in late 1861 and the children up to the 1871 census have mmn Davies,so it seems pretty conclusive.
I did look at the Stoke record,as there would probably have been mining jobs there,but I think I dismissed it,can't remember why now-I'll look again.

Regards
Roger

Blimey! Unbelievable!! That is so great. Why haven't I found that before..  I thought I'd tried every permutation going... You're a star. Thank you both so much. You've put in a vast amount of work and solved a 3 year mystery...
Now.. why on earth are they in Stafford!!
Yes, I've got FindMyPast.. just off to look.

As I said in an earlier comment,people were in fact extraordinarily mobile in those days as they moved around to look for work.

It would probably be for mining jobs.

Of course Coal Mines closed in both Staffordshire and Flintshire.This is how and why they moved back and forth.

Obviously Rootschat does not like acronyms .. I did not say blimey!
Thank you again.

Perhaps Thomas worked at Northwood Colliery.
