Hughes family Ferndale

I am researching my family history of my Great Grandfather Evan Hughes. I know he was born in Ferndale on April 18, 1882 and came to the US on June 12, 1902. Since he was not yet born at the time of the 1881 census I only have the 1891 and 1901 census to go by. Family papers stated his parents were William and Mary, however I did not find census records to match. I do have the 1891 census showing William and Martha with a son, Evan born around 1882. By 1901 he had left home and I believe I do have a census showing him as a boarder in Barry. This would have been a few months before he left for the US.

I would love to confirm that these are the right people and find family further back than William and Martha but it seems that William Hughes was quite the popular name and I don’t know what Martha’s maiden name was. Does anyone know of a way to check birth records or newspaper accounts online. Ancestry.com has not gotten me any farther.
