    Default Pierce Family from Llandecwyn

    Hi all does anyone have any info about Thomas Pierce born around 1875 in Llandecwyn.
    His mother was Ellen Pierce born around 1851.

    I don't know where they lived but Ellen married Henry Thomas during the
    1880's and after that they lived in Porthmadog.

    Thomas Married Margaret Humphreys b1870 abt. She was the daughter of Thomas Humphreys of Treflys, and Dorothy Williams.


    Thanks
    Mike

    Default Thomas PIERCE

    Looks as if Thomas also had a sister Jane:

    1891 census of Ynyscynhaiarn, Porthmadog
    RG124649, folio 55, page 19
    Bk Dora Street

    Henry THOMAS Head M 40 Farm Servant Morfa Bychan Caernarvonshire
    Ellen do Wife M 48 Talsaman Co Merioneth
    Thomas PIERCE Son S 16 Farm Servant do do
    Jane do Daur S 13 General Servant do do
    David R THOMAS Son S 8 Scholar Morfa Bychan Caernarvonshire
    Kate do Daur S 6 do do do
    John do Son S 3 do do
    William do Son S 2 do do

    Thomas is shown as a Boarder in the 1881 census of Llanfihangel y Traethau:
    RG11/5548, folio 65, page 8
    Tyntroll

    Jane ROBERTS Head Widow 62 Grocer Llandecwyn Merionethshire
    Jane do Daur Un 32 Dressmaker Harlech do
    Edward FRANCIS Lodger Un 16 Gardener Oswestry
    Thomas PIERCE Boarder 6 Scholar Llandecwyn Merionethshire

    However, I can't find either Ellen or Jane in the 1881 census. Do you have the marriage certificate of your Thomas & Margaret or that of Henry THOMAS and Ellen PIERCE as they will give you the name & profession of the father of both bride and groom in each case which should help to trace Ellen in earlier census records.

    Hi Janet
    Thanks for your info.
    I will ask family members about the marriage certs. If I can find the parents of Ellen that would be excellent.
    Regards
    Mike

    Hi Janet
    According to family members, Jane was the sister of Thomas. We may also have the Marriage Cert for Thomas and Margaret. We don't know about Ellen though.

    The 1891 census record looks correct so I will see what info I can find out about Ellen's birth in Talasarnau. It is one stop closer to finding her parents.

    Regards
    Mike
