    Hello,

    What is your source for Edward having been born in 1849, please? The Festiniog registration district covered Llanfair and there are a couple of Edward GRIFFITH (without the "s") registrations for 1852.

    He is on the 1871,1881,1891,1901 census and it is definately Griffiths on 1901 census it says born llanfair DC Denbighshire and on 1881 says born llanfair denbighshire

    Ah - then that would be Ruthin registration district. I have had a look there on FreeBMD and there is neither Edward GRIFFITH nor GRIFFITHS recorded that I can see.

    A couple of things to consider:
    1) His birth was registered elsewhere
    2) His birth was not registered. This happened with some in the early years of registration.
