Which parish?
« on: Friday 05 January 18 19:49 GMT (UK) »
On FindmyPast there are a number of images of marriages dated about 1790 taking place in a parish in Denbighshire - but they do not seem to know which parish it is, in the transcription the 'place' is blank!

The marriage which particularly interests me took place on 30 Jan 1790 between Thomas Jones of Ruabon Parish, bachelor, son of John Jones, Collier by Anne his wife, aged 20 and Mary Edwards of this Parish, spinster, daughter of Edward Edwards, Shoemaker, by Mary his wife, aged 23. They were married by the vicar Edward Jones.

In addition to Ruabon, other parishes mentioned by name (in other marriages shown) and so, presumably, not 'this Parish' are Llantysilio, Wrexham, Corwen and Bryn Eglwys.

Does anyone know where this marriage took place?

Llangollen looks a possibility.If you look for a Jones baptism in 1790 in Denbighshire on the same database the first one that comes up is Llangollen,and if you look at the image it says "Edward Jones,vicar"
This possibility is confirmed by the CCED database:-

My immediate thought was Llangollen as it was one of the parishes that gave detailed ino at that time. I'm looking for my Clwyd booklets for that one  and will report back when I find them.

Yes - got to the correct page  ( V8, 33) in the Marriage booklet. It is Llangollen.

PS - do you need anything more from Llangollen while I've got my booklets out  ;D

Sorry Gadget, missed your kind PS. It seems the family lived at Moreton Above, Ruabon so I'll be shifting my attention there.

Have the booklets for there too, if FindMyPast's records get muddled again !
