Hi Ros,

Well done on finding the details of Jemima’s marriage to William Onslow. Is it possible to send us the full transcript with ages and father’s names?

I think that William Onslow also married his first wife Elizabeth at St Mary’s, Ruabon in 1841? Can you access the Clwyd fhs Resource centre in Cefn? They may have copies or transcripts of St Mary’s Church parish records to look up.

I can help you with Rebecca. She is definitely Jemima’s sister.

I have Henry, Rebecca and Jemima living at home with their parents Thomas and Ann‎(e)‎ on the 1841 census. Rebecca was baptised at St Martins on 21st May 1837. Rebecca witnessed her brother, Henry’s marriage in 1855. She married James Barlow in Ellesmere church on 6th May 1859. They lived at Dudleston Heath and had several children. She died at Dudleston Heath in 1894. I have details of her on the 1861, 1871, 1881, and 1891 census but not on the 1851. That is the missing link as I can’t find anyone except my Henry on the 1851 census! Where were the rest of them?!!!

I also found Ellen Owen in West Derby on the 1881 census and wondered if she married her stepbrother in 1883. ‎(Some of my Gallands also went to West Derby before coming back to Shropshire so it wasn’t too unusual-suspect it was work related)‎

Good hunting on the census return of 1851 and hope you find our missing Owen’s. You will find Henry aged 16 occupation cowboy at Far House, Criftins living with the family of Charles Brown Owen ‎(I don’t think he’s related as he was fairly wealthy, but who knows!)‎ Watch out for another Thomas and Anne Owen living in Dudleston. You can tell them apart from ours as they have different children listed. Good luck.
