Maybe ?? about the 1861 Griffiths family.

Sarah gives her YoB as 1841 in her marriage, the census indicates 1839, there is a possible birth cert that says 1838, Father = collier, mother formerly Hughes.

Found a few of public trees now, they either don't know or they say her mother is Hannah SIMON :rolleyes:

Of course her mother may have married before, though that wouldn't explain 'below' unless she gave a previous married name instead of her maiden name..

GRO:
GRIFFITHS, SARAH
mmn = HUGHES
1838 MQ1 HOLYWELL
Vol 27 Page 208

Possible death for Hannah, which would explain why she is not in the shipping list for 1878, interestingly age close to that in the 1861 census..

Deaths Q2 1866
Griffiths Hannah
Age = 64
Auckland 10a 97

Thanks Ellie.

Just starting to work on the two families so very little currently in my tree.

Dave
 
Thanks Geoff.

Finally got around to viewing some shipping records at the State Library. Clearly says parents on board but only Daniel found in the index.

Yep, have rechecked that and he is definitely on his own. As a matter of interest his age is very well suited to the 1861 census. He says he is a labourer in 1878, possibly retired as a collier..

Looking for Daniel in 1871, this looks to be a possible..
