Edward Roberts b. Henllan 1821

England
Edward Roberts (b. 27NOV1821 - Henllan) married Mary Bellis (16OCT1843) and lived in Market Square, Denbigh. He was a textile draper and on 10NOV1849 Mary gave birth to a son (named Edward Morris Roberts). The census of March 1851 shows Mary and young son Edward back living with her parents at Pontruffydd Farm near Bodfari.
Mary's husband Edward just seems to have vanished without a trace. No death certificate, no record of him being a lodger anywhere, not even a second marriage after abandoning his first family (as I believe his father did).

Any offers please for what happened in the 16 month window from November 1849 to March 1851.
Bramhall.
 
I've put in Edward Roberts born 1848 to 1851 with mother Mary Roberts living in Denbighshire in 1851 and no result that fits ??

The plot thickens, 1861 census, This looks like Edward and John age and birthplace right but who is Hannah age right birthplace wrong. Could be barking up the wrong tree but seems to much of a coincidence.
