Hello Everyone.
I'm trying to find parents and sibling of my Great Grandfather Charles David Nicholls , he was born ( according to his birth certificate )25 Feb 1862 at ``The Bank`` New Radnor , in the counties of Radnor and Hereford, Reg District Presteigne.
His father was David Nicholls and mother was Emma Evans .
I have been trying to locate Charles David in the 1861 census to find his family but the only one that turns up on GR is a Charles J. Nicholls born 1858.
I have hit a brick wall with my paternal side of the family so having a go at the maternal side , It will be great if you could help me find Charles David's family.
Kind Regards
Shaun

P.S, apparently the family are from Llandegley , Radnorshire.

If he was born in 1862 or 1871 as that census says he would'nt be on the 1861 census.

Sorry about that, I will stop looking in the 1861 now :-D

Hello,
Why can't I find the above family in 1861?
Just went through all of them and not one of them come up in 1861.
I'm puzzled or puddled :-D

I can't find David on the 1861 but they married in June quarter so Emma could be under her maiden name if they married after April.

Wonder if this is your David??
