Catherine Jones married Charles Davies 1879 Aberystwyth
« on: Thursday 11 April 19 04:11 BST (UK) »
Hi all, messaging from Oz (Australia),
My Paternal G-G Grandmother Catherine Jones married Charles Davies (Gardener) May 23 1879, in Aberystwyth (Vol. 11b, p91). She was listed in the paper as residing "Bridge Street, Aberystwyth". They then emigrated to Australia 1880.

We cannot find her death record in NSW to confirm her parents, though recently found an old family postcard from Thomas Stephen Jones to "Uncle Charles and Aunty Catherine". Tom's father was Henry Morris Jones, who we THINK was Catherine's brother, with father (from death notice) Stephen Jones and mother Elizabeth Joseph.

I cannot find any census info (MyHeritage or Ancestry) linking the names, and have no other clue than Catherine's residence before marriage (above).
I would REALLY appreciate any clues that may exist at your end. I've tried searching online Newspapers in Wales with no success so far.
Thanks in advance,

Paul Davies ;D

I was just about to post the same.

An additional note from the marriage is that it was at Bethel Chapel, Aberystwyth.

The marriage certificate might be the best way forward, to confirm the father's name and his occupation etc

Does it give her age?

Sorry, Welsh Geography is not my strong point. Nevertheless, what is the likelihood of travel between shires?

Buy a copy of her marriage cert which will give her fathers name and occupation and also her age.  If father is Stephen then you have your answer

With a surname like Jones - you at least need to have a rough idea of her birthyear
