How do you know that Julia Matilda is his mother please? If she was unmarried at the time of Arthur's birth then surely the birth would have been registered in her maiden surname? Also her maiden name would be on Arthur's birth certificate.

Are you sure that you are following the correct Arthur?

I have many Davies's in my family, one in particular I am struggling with, a Julia Matillda maiden name unknown, born C 1856 in Swansea, already married to William M Davies (b 1855, Swansea) when she gave birth to an Arthur Ernest Davies in 1877, whose father was listed on Arthur's marriage certificate (1895) as being a deceased Richard Davies, journeyman cabinet maker. On Arthurs birth certificate there is no father listed. Julia seems to have married into a prosperous and educated family, but I have no idea who her parents were, or who Richard was!

Ihave spent a lot of time on census searches,but without a maiden name it is difficult of course re Julia, and I can only guess as to when/where Richard was born.

Any ideas? Interestingly Arthur's wife, Sarah Catherine Davies b 1878 Abertillary(yes that is her maiden name) has a grandfather Thomas Davies (b1814) who was a cabinet maker in Cheltenham, and her father, another Thomas Davies (b1846) appears to have initially been one too, before leaving Cheltenham for the tin trade in South Wales. I so love history, but always more questions than answers.
