Hi Freinds,

I am having more problems with my Messhams, In my last thread crankypants found that I should have been looking for John Messham who married Elizabeth Hollins, now I am having problems with Johns father and mother, father was William Messham born 1831 at Buckley, Flintshire. Mother was Dinah ? born 1835 at Hawarden, I would like to know Dinah's maiden name please.

I have searched and searched but can't find a marriage.
Thanks

Gwen :)

The John MESSHAM b. 1856 Hawarden in 1881/1891 is no where to be found in 1861/1871.
There is only Edward MESSHAM, son of William & Dinah 1861/1871.

1861 MESSHAM & POWELL families living next door to each other.

William MESSHAM
Dinah MESSHAM
Edward MESSHAM
Mary Jane MESSHAM

Hi Crankypants,

This is getting confusing,:eek: I have found Edward in 1861, 1871, 1881, on those three occasions still at home with William and Dinah Messham. I also have my late mum in laws parents marriage certificate Grooms father is named EDWARD MESSHAM one of the witnesses was LIZZIE ANNIE MESSHAM. Was she the groom JOHN WILLIAM MESSHAM'S mother or ?.:confused: :confused:

Excuse me whilst I have a nervous breakdown!!!:confused: :eek: :eek:

Gwen,
