  9. Rhosllannerchrugog (Wrexham) Marriage look up

    Sarah Ellis and William T(homas) Jones married in Rhosllannerchrugog in 1909.

    This is for a friend's tree, and I doubt they'd want to pay for certificates.

    Thought it was worth a try to see if...

    I've been to the register office today, and found this document. It names the mother Elizabeth Cross, and the father Henry Cooper, but doesn't name the child, only the date he was born on (can't...

    The fine hadn't been introduced by 1950, for not registering births etc, had it? So it's possible that his parents just didn't bother to register the birth.

    1. Good point!
    2. No I don't. I'll put it on my list!

    I've just had a look now but it's still not making much sense. It says criminal records from after 1878 are more likely to be found locally - but how do I find out for certain where the right items...

    In the 1871 census, aged 5, he is living as a boarder with a family (possibly mother's family, but not sure)

    And in 1881, aged 15, he is living on a farm as a farm servant.
