Moses Hughes b Dudley 1818
« on: Saturday 09 May 20 16:24 BST (UK) »
Hi - I need help with the above. He married an Ellen and had children from 1840 - Betsy, Catherine, Mary, Sarah Ann, William, Hannah, Betsy (again) and Maria and they ended up in Rotherhithe SE London. I originally thought Moses had married Mary Ellen Evans in 1840 in Sedgeley, but when I was searching him elsewhere I fouind a reference to an Ellen Parkes as his wife, and in the 1861 census the family (without Moses) are with a Nancy Parkes b 1778 Dudley who could be his wife's mother. However I cannot find a marriage of a Moses to an Ellen Parkes. Any help gratefully received. Thanks

If Nancy Parkes is Ellen's mother, as the Census states,  it is possible that she had remarried.

Have you considered that Nancy may have been previously married and Ellen was from her first marriage

EDIT
