Trying to find out information on my great grandmother Elizabeth Balmer. She was born in Buckley in Flintshire in 1852. She married Joshua James in Southwalk in London and had 3 daughters names were Rhoda Tabitha & Mary. Elizabeth moved to Mountain Ash in Mid Glamorgan around about 1880 where all her children were born. There was also mention of a nephew living with them in Glamorgan called Edward Charles Nice who was also born in Southwalk.

Can anyone help
