Thank you Ladyhawk, I think we have established that Ric Jones is Reubens farther ,on a closer perusal of Reubens Marriage lines I was able to see that Reuben and Mary Anne Powell Lived in Fawnhope, where Reuben was born. Thank you for all your input, I have more to do on this subject later today, thank you again.   jesse123

Hi Jesse,

The Civil Registration of births, marriages and deaths only started in England and Wales on 1st July 1837. Before that date these events were not formally registered and we are dependant on the baptisms, marriages and burials registers kept by each parish where the event occurred.

As a result there is no formal marriage certificate for Richard and Frances.

There is a transcribed record of the event on the Family Search site (this is a free resource with millions of worldwide events recorded and it is run by the Church of Latter Day Saints. You can search it for free - but you need to register with the site first.

The website is here;
https://www.familysearch.org/search/

The record for Richard and Frances's marriage is attached to this message for you. As you will see in the parish records we don't receive the same amount of information that is included on the later, formal certificates.

The actual parish registers for the church concerned are probably held at Herefordshire Archives, but these are unlikely to show any additional information I'm afraid. Hence the further back we go - we have no census records with names before 1841 -- and we have no formal certificates before July 1837.

The next thing you can search for on that Family Search site are other children born to Richard and Frances (I think LadyHawk may have already posted the details of these) --- then search for the baptisms of Richard and Frances -- again try the Family Search free website.

Good Luck with it Jesse.

(For some reason I cannot attach the image - so I will copy what it says;

Name; Richard Jones
Event Type; Marriage
Event Date; 11 Jul 1821
Event Place; Herefordshire, England
Marital Status; Single
Spouse's Name; Frances Wood
Spouses Marital Status; Single

(From another website which requires a subscription to view records I can tell you that the location of the marriage was at Fownhope with Fawley.)


West Yorks; ---- Illingworth, Marshall, Muffit/Muffett/Murfitt, Barber, Sanderson, Townend, Barraclough, Lister -- and lots more. Locations mainly in Birstall parish - Hartshead-- Drighlington --Adwalton --Mirfield - Heckmondwike --Kippax - Sherburn in Elmet.

Ireland ------Cleary, Whelan - Nenagh.

Daly - Westmeath

Lancashire ---- Smith from Alston , Johnson and Fairclough---- Tarleton and loads more from Tarleton and Accrington areas.

to Pennines, hi Pennines hope you are keeping safe, R,e , Ruben Jones search, I have carried on researchers since we Last chatted, and going on from Richard Jones , where we got to last time, I found his father was Thomas Jones and Priscilla Pocknell Mother, dates 1767, andThomas father Was Richard Jones 1743 , Mother Sarah Edwards 1742, then the trace went cold, I said I would come back to you, and I intend carrying on.

That's great news Jesse -- you must be really pleased at finding these further back ancestors. It does get more difficult the further back you go -- you have got further back than I have with some of my lines!

Either there are too many with the same names OR no-one with that name in that particular parish. Still - it would be boring if it was too easy!

Keep up the good work -- and stay safe.

Thank you Pennines it has taken hours of searching and I am sure I am on the right track, dates and names and the offsprings names have been running through the generations right up to today, and from talks with my mother when I was young.
