Teresa With Irish Blood in Me Veins Report 21 Dec 2013 22:32

I have the marriage certificate of David Roberts and Margaret Davies who married in 1919 Bridgend. Both gave the same address in Pontycymmer, Bridgend.

David Roberts aged 23 Shoemaker (master) his father Edward Roberts, Collierry Foreman.

Margaret Davies aged 24. Father: Joseph Davies a Market Gardener.

I've tried searching for both on the Welsh Census records but can't find either of them with their father!

Copy Certificate to anyone related.

Could this be Margaret in the 1911 census? :-

This is a possibility for David in 1911 (he gives his birthplace as Pontycymmer). His father's occupation sounds like a foreman. :-

5 children born to the marriage. 3 living and 2 have died.

David could have changed his occupation in the time between this census and the marriage in 1919.

Is the reason for this post merely to offer the cert?

If so, add it to

Thanks Kath

That could be either of them.

Unfortunately I don't know where either of them were born.

I've also searched by addres on the 1911 census and can't find either of them living at the address on the marriage certificate, 52 Victoria Street Pontycymmer.
Witnesses: Justinia Mainwaring and William Mainwaring.


I will add the certificate to freebmd as and when I'm ready.
