Trying to find information about Richard William Davies who married Susan Reed in Ynysybwl Glamorgan in 1912. I have their marriage certificate which gives his age as 24 occupation miner fathers name Henry Davies also a miner. I've got lots about Susan Reed and her family, but know nothing about Richard and his father Henry. I've recently discovered I've been researching the wrong family so would be grateful for any help.

Gwyn - the witnesses names were Gilbert Reed (Susans father) Charles Reed (Susans brother) and Beatrice Fortt (sorry her surname is not very clear)

Annie - they were married at Christ Church

Annie

Thank you for your reply. I know Susan Reed was born in Archer Street. Susan and Richard had a son - William Gilbert in 1913 he was my husbands father. We thought Richard died in WW1, but not certain. Susan remarried in Ross-on-Wye in 1917.

Hi Vicci, one of those marriages is to a William Ricketts Davies. I suspect this is the one that Julie was following and thought it was the wrong one. I think she has it on a tree on another internet site. William Ricketts was, in 1911, in a street very near to Archer Street. Maybe Julie can come back to us on this.
