My Great Grandmother was called Annie Beatrice Jones Born C1905 in Wales, Trefeglwys in montgomeryshire i think, She married a Lloyd and then Left her husband and kids and married my great grandfather and had my nan and her siblings.

My great grandad was Richard Abraham Harris BC1897 in Montgomeryshire. My nan Mary had the Lloyd surname until Richard and Annie were married. then she became Mary Elizabeth Harris. I have no idea where to start on this. My nan has half siblings and knows nothing about them or where they are.

First marriage -

Marriages Mar 1923 (>99%)
Jones Annie B Lloyd Newtown 11b 190
Lloyd John H Jones Newtown 11b 190

Now you can go to

and enter Surname of Lloyd, Spouse/Mother surname of Jones and District of Newtown.

There are lots of births to chose from depending on how many Lloyd/Jones marriages there were.

This is the second marriage -
Marriages Dec 1948 (>99%)
Harris Richard A Lloyd Newtown 8c 704
Harris Richard A Jones Newtown 8c 704
Jones Annie B Harris Newtown 8c 704
Lloyd Annie B Harris Newtown 8c 704

I cannot find any children from the second marriage (Annie would have been 43 years old).

Do you have any more information about this?

When was your nan, Mary born?

Which marriage would have had the half siblings?

You can send me a personal message by clicking on my name if the people concerned are still living.

My Nan was Mary Elizabeth Harris Born 1934 in Welshpool, Montgomeryshire, Wales.

She was Annie and Richards only Daughter but as i say she has half siblings from annies first marriage to John Lloyd.

There are loads of Lloyd/Jones births around that area so without knowing the first names of the half siblings it would be impossible to know which were the correct births.

You could start by looking at the ones registered in Newtown (where the first marriage took place) but it could be quite expensive as you wouldn't be certain without seeing the birth certificates to check that it was the right parents.

It's a long shot but there is a John W Lloyd 1935 Newtown mothers maiden name Jones ;-)


KathleenBell Report 21 Feb 2012 12:48

There is this one as a possible:-

Name: LLOYD, Annie D
Registration district: Newtown
County: Montgomeryshire
Year of registration: 1923
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name: Jones
Volume no: 11B
Page no: 232

This is another possible (if the marriage given above is the correct one and given that the groom's name is John. H. Lloyd):-

Name: LLOYD, John H
Registration district: Newtown
County: Montgomeryshire
Year of registration: 1925
Quarter of registration: Apr-May-Jun
Mother's maiden name: Jones
Volume no: 11B
Page no:215

another 2 Lloyd children

George M 1934 Newtown
Thomas C 1928 Newtown mother's maiden name Jones



Barry Report 21 Feb 2012 13:32

Her full name is Annie Beatrice Jones Born 1905 in I think it was Trefeglwys, Montgomery. Her parents Were James and Jane Jones.

So I dont think it could be the Annie D one!.

Hi Lynne, I knew all the siblings and there parents and grandparents. :)


Braken Report 21 Feb 2012 14:13

Were John George and Thomas siblings of your Mary Elizabeth Lloyd/Harris


Reggie Report 21 Feb 2012 14:16


Annie D born 1923 was a possible CHILD of Annie Beatrice. You must read carefully the info which people take the trouble to find for you

As has already been pointed out, the names are so common that the only way to find accurate details is to buy certs

You really should be looking for info yourself on freebmd


Barry Report 21 Feb 2012 14:25

I am not sure Braken as My nan was a only child to the 2nd marriage i know nothing of the first marriage and the half siblings.

And i have been using freebmd but i find it difficult to use and am trying to get my head around it, so yes Annie D could be a possible child of my great grandmother Annie Beatrice Jones/Lloyd first marriage


Braken Report 21 Feb 2012 14:36

The 3 children's names I have given you are to Annie Beatrice's first marriage to John Lloyd the same as Mary Elizabeth so if correct they would be full siblings


Barry Report 21 Feb 2012 14:41

My nan was born before my great nan and great grand dad got married!, so my nan was born with the lloyd name as my my great nan was then Annie Lloyd. my great grand parents wernt married till the 40s.


Braken Report 21 Feb 2012 14:46

Sorry I think I have got mixed up I thought

Annie Beatrice Jones was born 1905c
married 1st husband John H Lloyd
then 2nd husband Richard Abraham Harris

that's why mary was Lloyd then Harris


Barry Report 21 Feb 2012 14:51

Yes Bracken that is right.


Braken Report 21 Feb 2012 14:54

So the 3 children's names I gave you hopefully if correct would be Mary Elizabeth Lloyd (Harris) siblings?

They would have been born before her mother Annie married Harris in 1948


Barry Report 21 Feb 2012 18:13

Ok thank you Braken :)
