There is an ancestry tree that shows Reuben married Mary Ann at Ledbury Herefordshire 1849 - 26 - 325 ?

Sandra.       Thank you for your post, the dates you have correspond with my info, Rueben was my great grandfather, I am trying to go back beyond him, would it be possible to have a copy of Ancestry tree please,     jesse123

Just checked the age at death for the burial of a Reuben Jones in Mathon in 1860 --- he was an infant aged 0 -- so can be discounted.

Therefore, your find in 1861, Sandra -could be correct.
. The date could be correct as some children died young and one died at birth.

1. The Reuben Jones who died in 1864 mentioned by Sandra - was 39 years old - so could be the correct Reuben based on his approximate birth year.

2. Jesse - how do you know your Reuben married Mary Ann Powell please? Have you purchased the marriage certificate as it would give you the fathers' names of bride and groom.

3. On the 1861 census found by Sandra - if it's the correct family and it looks like it as birthplace and age of Reuben is correct -- there is an 11 year old son James which pre-dates the marriage of a Reuben Jones to Mary Ann Powell. In addition the maiden name of the mother of that James Jones, in Ledbury Reg Dist appears to be Bough.

4. The family tree on Ancestry cannot really be copied to you -- if you have access to that site - you can find it by going to 'Search' and from the drop down menu which appears - select Public Member Trees - insert your search term for Reuben Jones. They have his father as Richard - but his wife as Mary Ann Jones! They show a marriage in 1849. (There is one in Ledbury Reg Dist, but it is to Mary Bough).

Jesse -- can you provide the name and birth year of the child of the Reuben b 1824 from whom you are descended please. What was the mother's maiden name? If you don't know we can check that.

Just to add -- the Reuben Jones who was born and died in 1860 - Ledbury Reg Dist -- mother's maiden name was Powell -- so did Reuben marry twice I wonder?

Firstly to Mary Bough and had James -- then to Mary Ann Powell. That's a possibility.
Has anyone found the family in 1851? I can't at the moment.

Thank you all for your warm welcome, and also your quick responses. I hope you can bear with me Iím very new to all this, so may make a few mistakes. ( Iím 86). Pennines, in answer to your question, Reuben definitely married Mary Anne Powell. Mary bough was his first wife. I have this information from relatives.

Jesse -- you are doing SO well as a newcomer to this, so don't worry.

You have answered the question which was puzzling me about Reuben being married twice -- and in both cases to a Mary! Our ancestors didn't like to make it easy for us did they!

So -- if you have one of his marriage certificates - that will give his father's name - which will be a start in trying to trace him backwards.

If you haven't -- it will cost £11 from the General Register Office in Southport - but you can order on line.

If you haven't done this before - let us know and we can talk you through how to do it. The other thing to bear in mind is that names of witnesses at a wedding can sometimes be useful - as they could be a relative.

I can't find a baptism for Reuben unfortunately - and if no-one else can, then a marriage certificate will at least give one parent's name.
