We need some help please with the ancestors of John Owen DAVIES b about 1866.we have his marriage certificate to Ellen Riley 1886 and his merchant naval Liverpool. He states his father was THOMAS DAVIES,a canvasser.We have not been able to confirm his birth or find him on a census with father THOMAS,but there is a John Owen Davies with a father WILLIAM ( joiner).This birth certificate gives the mother as Dinah late Bradley formerly Jones.
Family reports claim a Welsh origin,possibly Caernarfon shire as he exported Welsh slate to Australia.
Could anyone dig him out the records please!
