Have you found him in any census, so that you have an approximate year for his birth?
Have you looked to see if anyone on here has him in their tree?

Reggie Report 29 Jun 2013 16:23

In which decade of the 1800's?

And which County? The place name you give does not appear to quite correct

How have you worked back to him?

margee that looks very promising as his wifes name was Margaret nee Roberts
I know they moved to Holyhead but do not know when
know they lived in Anglesey all their lives and one of their children Elizabeth was born in Holyhead
I will have to go to the library and look on Ancestry to see if I can find out more on them
thank you to all for your help
