cheers Steve ..

I have all the info on David John Thomas it's his Grand Parents i'm looking for .. the parants of his father John Thomas .. the last info I have is from the 1881 census and have hit a brickwall going forward the only option is to obtain the marriage certificate of John Thomas and Maria Samuel but this would only give his fathers name and occupation .. during his time David John Thomas lived at nuber 5 & 10 Hosea Row so your are on the right track

really appreciate your time & effort

Best Regards Ron
