William Davies - How do you prove this


Well-known member
Question: How do you prove that this person is the right person.
I have a William Davies marrying a Mary Barrett Toxteth Park Liverpool 27 March 1878. Williams father is shown as a William Davies occupation Mariner. I do not know who his mother is.
I found on the 1871 census a William born 1859 with a father called William (Dock Labourer) this runs true through the family in latter years,as they were all Dock Labourers. This William is shown as born in Denbighshire Wales, wife Elizabeth born Montgomeryshire
.As North Wales is close to Liverpool, this could well be the family,But because I don't know Elizabeths surname, & because of the amount of William Davies born Liverpool with a Father named William, how do I ever find the right one. I would spend a fortune trying to order Birth Certificates. So where do I go from here please.Any advise would be most welcome:eek:
