Thomas Cross
« on: Sunday 12 August 18 15:40 BST (UK) »
In 1851 Wrexham I have this family.
All the children I found on the GRO have mmn as Williams.
I can`t find a marriage and the David Hughes is confusing me. Of course he might have been married to one  of Thomas`s sisters.
 If they married before 1837 they would have been quite young.
 The only one I can find is on Family search but it takes you to FindMyPast  , what a swizz !
Thomas Cross   Baptism   18 Dec 1817  Wrexham

Can anyone help please.

1851
Thomas Cross 33 Currier b Wrexham
Margaret  30 dressmaker b Bala
Charles 8 b  Wxm
Eliza  ( Elizabeth/)6 b Wxm
Edwin Alfred  son 1 b Wxm
David Hughes W bro in law 18 Ruthin

Thomas died in 1882 aged 63

Thanks
In 1861 there is a Charles  Cross b Wxm  in Abbot Street,  he is  46 and a joiner and carpenter,  he has a son  John. I wonder if he is a brother to Thomas.
Unless Thomas had more children before the ones from 1851 he didn`t  name any of them  John.

I have found an obit from 1883

http://newspapers.library.wales/view/4589484/4589489/34/

Sadly no info on wife's background but it does note very long link with Penybryn Chapel, which may be a useful pointer

Also spotted this - which raises questions!

Thanks, I have found him in the papers quite  a lot, but not spotted the obit.
 I had thought he was non conformist but this confirms it.

 Thanks for the help,
 I am now looking at his son  Charles  but he married Sarah Jones ::) from Wrexham .  Can anyone help me with these details.

Cross Charles  born 1850  married   1871  I think it may be the  Cheshire Marriage Licence Bonds And Allegations .
