    Default Moses Cousens

    He was born 1839 near Haverfordwest Pembrokeshire to Thomas and Sarah Couzens.

    In the 1841 Census he is with his parents and sister in Johnston, Haverfordwest.
    In the 1851 Census he is with his grandmother Catharine Jinkins in Freystrop, Pembs.
    In the 1861 Census he is a boarder living in Steynton, Pembs and working as an agricultuaral labourer, and described as unmarried.

    After this he vanishes.

    Moses Cousins (and any variation of spelling you can think of) is a very uncommon name. If you work your way through censuses, and the civil registration indices (births, marriages and deaths) you will only find about a dozen occurences in all of England and Wales.

    It is possible that he married Elizabeth Young in 1858 Jul Haverfordwest 11a 924, but as he is described as single in the 1861 census, this might be a second marriage for the Mozes Cozens who was born about 1821 in Haverfordwest, and who in the 1841 Census was living in Freystrop, and who married in 1841. This second one died in Haverfordwest in 1871 aged 51.

    Any thoughts about where to go from here?

    Many thanks for your response and PMs. I don't know any of these, as I don't use Genes R. I shall have to have a look into this.

    Thanks for the offer, but I have decided to invest 16.95 in order to be able to send them a message.
