Welsh Look up - Henry Davies

ProfilePosted byOptionsPost Date


Vaughan Report 7 Mar 2013 16:49

In the 1911 census Henry Davies is listed as having been born in Llandisilio Carmarthenshire and his age is given as 38 giving him a birth year of approx 1873. He left South Wales around 1900 and settles in Liverpool with his wife Hannah.
Despite the above information I am having great difficult tracing his family and birth. Any help would be most appreciated.

Please post the 1911 census


Vaughan Report 7 Mar 2013 19:32

yes I've found them on the 1911 census in West Derby Liverpool.
Morfydd May was born in 1909 in Litherland Liverpool.
His wifes maiden name was Lewis!
I'm not sure I know how to post the census?
I've searched for a marriage certificate without success so far.
