Rowlands family


Well-known member
Hello everyone,

I'm hoping that with your experience in searching for individuals you'll be able to help me to find my Rowlands family. I've hit a brick wall but I'm not giving up. To begin with can I request please a 1871 Census look up?

I'm looking for William Rowlands b. 1829 in Llandewi, Pembrokeshire. He married Isabella Churchill b. 1829 in Abergavenny, Monmouthshire. Their son William Henry was born 1861 born Abergavenny, Monmouthshire.

I've taken the above and some of the following info from the 1861 Census at that time the family were living in Rumney, Monmouthshire. Isabella died and William Rowlands married her sister Mary Ann Churchill in 1863. Mary Ann was born in Merthyr, Glamorgan.

Other detail would suggest that William may have been in the Merchant Navy. His marriage record suggests his father was named John Rowlands. I would also like to know more information about John.

Thank you,
