As you probably know, the 1841 census is missing for most of the wider Wrexham area. However, a while ago,  transcripts for the two Wrexham districts were discovered inside a book in a second hand bookshop in Wrexham (or something like that).  Clwyd FHS, produced a booklet of these. These were just by address with no refs. I remembered that I had a copy, so just for extra info:

Here are John and Elizabeth:
The Walks, Wrexham Abbott
John Rogers, 40, Shoemaker journeyman
Elizabeth, 45
Charles, 21
Vere. 19
Rebecca, 15
Edward, 12
Mary, 5
Ann, 2
All born county


and William and Elizabeth
Beast Market, Wrexham Regis
William Rogers, 40, shoemaker
Elizabeth, 40
Henry, 15, Ap Shoemaker
Ann, 14
Mary, 12
Edwin, 5
James, 3
William, 3 weeks
All born county

The only John Rogers/Elizabeth Hussey marriage  that I can find is in Eccles, Lancs, 19 July 1819.
Unfortunatley, it's a transcription so no other info!

Son, Charles, bpt Wrexham 23 April 1820, which might add up.

Wow Gadget, you achieve more on your lunch break than I do in weeks!

Yes, that's the correct marriage - here are what notes I had written down after viewing the original parish record image: Married by Banns, both made their mark, witnesses Thomas Turner and Richard Dixon. Both otp.

I do not know what the pair was doing in Eccles...
