New boy here. Can I pick a few of the expert brains that use these pages please?
I appear to have reached the end of the line with Thomas Bowen who according to census
records and his MI was born in St Davids, PEM in 1811.
There is no Cathedral baptism for that date, the closest being a Thomas Bowen ba 21 Nov
1816 s/o Thomas and Martha Bowen (Mariner). The names of their other children, Anne
(1813), Henry(1819) and William and Martha all appear in the names of the children or
grand children of Thomas and Mary Bowen (Nee Harries) - they were married in 1836 so no
joy with parents' names there!
The family of Thomas and Mary worshipped in the Tabernacle CM Church but there is no
baptism record from that date or in other non-conformist records that I have been able to
trace. I have also investigated various Wills without success.
Could Thomas and Martha be the connection despite the 5yr discrepancy.?
Does anyone know anything about either family or have any suggestions, or is this the end
of the line?
