I have been working on my Gt Grandmother's family, and I have a few "holes"
that I hope other listers might be able to fill for me.
George COUSINS/COUZINS was born 1841 Johnston. Unfortunately there are 2 indivuals in the
same quarter. Am I right in assuming that Johnston would come under Haverfordwest
George was the son of Thomas and Sarah Jenkins who married in 1834. In the 1841 Census
Thomas's name is spelt COUSENS.
In the 1851 Census they are COZENS and living in West House, Johnston, and Thomas is a
coal miner. Their eldest son, Moses, born 1839 is living with his grandmother Catharine
Jinkins (born 1786) at Sandy Wells, Freystrop. His name is spelt COUSINS.
In the 1861 Census the only Thomas I can find is a married coal miner from Johnston in
Haverfordwest Prison. His name is spelt COZENS. I can't find any other rest of the
family apart from Moses who is living at Harmeston Mountain, Bulford, Steynton. He is a
boarder with a George Jenkins aged 73.
I am particilarly interested in trying to track down George (born 1841) and his mother
Sarah. George married Elizabeth Williams at the end of 1861. I have tried all sorts of
permutations, so any suggestions would be welcomed.
In the 1871 Census Sarah is living at Johnston Pond, Johnston with her granddaughter Mary
COUSINS aged 9. There is no sign of Thomas, but she is not described as a widow. George
is living with his family and is listed under COSSENS/CASSENS.
I can find no trace of Sarah after this date.
So to summarise my "holes"
1. Where was George born 1841 in the 1861 census?
2. Where was Sarah born about 1815 in the 1861 Census?
3. What happened to Thomas born about 1804 after the 1861 Census?
4. What happened to Sarah after the 1871 Census?
Any help would be much appreciated. I know its really difficult with all the surname
