therefore about 1818. Her marriage certificate of 23 Jun 1838, in Nolton
Church, gives her maiden name as JOHN, and her father was Evan, a
So it must have been a late birth, unless Ann was a very young bride!
So what I'd like to know is - when and where exactly was Margaret born,
where and when were her parents Evan JOHN and Ann(e) OWEN born? And how
