The Elliott's/Clarke's!

Right, just trying to see how far FORWARDS I can come with these relations of mine, and possibly see if I've got any living relations I didn't know about. But, any data from the 1891/1901/1911 census's on any of these individuals would be great. You're welcome to just pick which of these individuals you think would be easiest to research, and I'm sorry, I have no further info than I have just given you.

As a note, I'm only 16 years old and have no way of paying for this hobby, just to let you know.

-Believe this census was taken when they were living in Garnant, Bettws, Carmarthen
This is an 1881 census result, so the birthdates can be worked out accordingly.

Robert Elliott 13 Carmarthen
John Elliott 11 Carmarthen
Samuel Elliott 8 Swansea (can't confirm he was born in Swansea, his dad was called Samuel and born in swansea though, might have got confused :p)
David Elliott 4 Abergavenny
William Elliott C 2 Abergavenny

-1881 census result, living in Diamond Street, Cardiff

Ernest E. Clarke 1 Cardiff
Arthur John Clarke 13 Lambeth, London

P.S, anything on "ELLIOTT, Samuel Son Single M 18 1893 Tramway Car Cleaner Glamorgan Cardiff " who was living in Railway street, Cardiff, at the time of the 1911 census would be great, I know this doesn't fit in with the rest of the people I've asked for, so it's cool if you can't provide any information.

You've been a great help Woodlander, it seems we were very much into the coal mining industry, and it's been intriguing to see that there are most probably many Elliott's around, possibly still living in Wales, who are related to me.

I have just two more questions - is there any information on David Elliott in 1911, and also, in one of them, you listed Elsie Elliott as a Niece... do you know much about her parents??

In 1881 the family is thus
Samuel 50 Swansea, rlwy train driver
Mary 47 llanelly
Mary 14 Carmarthen
Robert 13 Carmarthen
John 11 Carmarthen
Samuel 8 Swansea
David 4 Abergavenny
William C 2 Abergavenny

Whos daughter could Elsie possible be?
I didn't find David, or a likely match.
This is a possibility for Elsie but only that. There is at least another of similar age born Bristol.You're only going to go so far with guesswork and coincidence of names/places on census etc. without proving by certificate sometimes or parish registers. It's so easy to go off on the wrong track. I realise you're restricted financially and that's difficult but no point barking up the wrong tree!

WOODS, Richard Head Married 25 Licensed Victualer born Bristol Gloucester
WOODS, Edith Wife Married 4 years 26 Assisting In The Business born Bristol Gloucester
