Thank you for that. I have checked the info on the family and what I am taking is from the 1861 and 1871 census above. I am sure this is the same family

I think you need to re-group and check the info on your family, you might be following the wrong line?

James Harries Davies was born in 1854 in Milford, Pembrokeshire. His parents were a John and Jane Davies. I have since found out in the LDS Family search he had a brother William Lewis Davies born in 1865 in Milford. I am trying to find a marriage reference for John and Jane. Which is why I was wondering if her maiden name was Harries or even possibly Lewis

Anne I assume you have tried Freebmd?

http://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl

If unsure of Jane's maiden name you might need a child birth cert. Why do you believe her name might be Harris?
