Thread: Asking for a friend on this one ..

    Asking for a friend on this one ..

    Can anyone work out where Thomas Jones is before 1901 or who his parents are?
    Thomas Jones born abt 1872 (age on marriage cert. in 1903 is 31). He marries Eliza Guest in Tylorstown. The marriage certificate says his father is Richard Jones (deceased). The 1911 and 1901 census say he's born in Halesowen, Worcestershire (they marry after they have had some children despite saying they have been married for 16 years on the 1911)?

    Any clues greatfully recieved to pass on!

    Thanks

    I too only found Amy on the censuses.
    Do you have the link to these two censuses?

    I found their marriage though.

    I can find a Thomas Jones, born 1872 Halesowen, father John, mother Lucy on the 1881 Census, and his baptism on England Select Births and Baptisms ............

    I cannot find him in 1891

    Plus, this seems to be the one married to Amy

    but "your" Thomas seems to always say 1870 +/1, and father Richard.

    Sorry I haven't replied sooner! Yes we couldn't find him anywhere before 1901 but then I guess it's a hard name to follow! Thanks for trying

    I found these possibles on 1891 census last night, wrote them up and didn't post them before I went to bed
    Of course they are not really helpful as again not with parents or siblings.
