Mary Griffiths actually Mary Ann Griffiths (1875-1897) is the daughter of
Joseph Griffiths (1854-1903) and Sarah Ann Reesís sister Margaret Evans (1854-1877).

John Rees is listed as Margaret Evansís father (although her surname is Evans) on her marriage certificate to Joseph Griffiths.

I and others have searched but not been able to find Margaret Evans birth record.

She is actually listed as born Merthyr Tydfil.


Have you ruled out this birth for Margaret?

Margaret Rees, GRO ref: 1856, M qtr, Vol 11a, Page 592, MMN Evans?


Where do you have her listed as born Merthyr Tydfil?

There is this birth entry on GRO indexes

EVANS, MARGARET   mmn EVANS
1854  M Quarter in MERTHYR TYDFIL  Volume 11A  Page 253   

Just adding these details so others can see

Margaret EVANS, f/a, single father John REES, farmer
18 Apr 1874 Llangendeirne, Carmarthenshire, Wales
Spouse:   Joseph GRIFFITHS f/a blacksmith father William, Sawyer
she signed her name as Margaret Evans
Witnesses Edwin Griffith & Daniel ?avies

Is this her parents marriage?

John REES, farmer, father Walter, farmer
Marriage 27 Feb 1857 Llangendeirne, Carmarthenshire, Wales
Spouse:   Margaret EVANS, father Stephen, farmer
John & Margaret made their mark
Witnesses Stephen Evans & Thomas ?

YES.

Hi

Merthyr is from:

Marg(a)ret Evans enumerated as granddaughter in the household of Stephen Evans in Cilcarw Ucha in 1871, place of birth shown as Glamorganshire RG10/5492 folio 35 pg 13 and in 1861 RG9/4135 folio 85 pg 14 place of birth Merthyr Tydfil.

Will have to recheck my notes on the below. Can't believe I an others have missed this but you never know!?
