John Mathews birth record

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date

Marie Report 29 Jul 2010 13:49

I am trying to locate a birth record for John Mathew(s). He was born c1850, census records say at Mold, Wales.
His father was William Mathew.

His wife was Ellen Hughes b1864 Denbigh. I cannot find a birth record for her either.
Her father was Edward Hughes.


I cannot locate John Mathews on any census records apart from the 1901 one.
Can anyone help?

It should be on FreeBMD, however many births weren.t reg before 1875 so you may not find it

Marie Report 18 Dec 2012 12:39

Please could someone search the 1891 census for William Mathew/s b. 1817 Mold, Flintshire & his wife Barbara b. 1823 Mold. Their son John Mathew may still be with them b. c1851 Mold.

Also please could you look up in the 1911 census for John & his wife Ellen b. 1864 Denbighshire.

Thankyou.
