Meyrick Thomas abt 1824
Posted by: Kristina Rickard (ID *****9215) Date: January 11, 2013 at 14:02:18

I asked for some help last month regarding my Great Grandfather David Thomas. I took the advice of the very nice people that were helping me & I ordered a record & got another record from a family member that I just recently found. This is what I have now:

Father: Meyrick Thomas
Mother: Mary Ann Thomas (Thomas is her maiden name as well)

I found a marriage record for these two names on

Meyrick born about 1824. Father Thomas Thomas
Mary Ann born about 1832. Father Richard Thomas
Marriage record for 16 Apr 1855.
That is the only record I can find that makes sense with the records I have.

I now have 2 forms of records that show that Meyrick was a tailor. It states that in a record from 1856 (his son's birth records) & a record from 1879 (his son's marriage records).

We know that Meyrick & Mary Ann had 3 children:

David: born 7 May 1856 in Gadlys, Aberdare, Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan, Wales
Catherine: born about 1862 (from what I was given last month)
Ann: unknown birth date

I found an 1851 Wales Census for a Meyrig Thomas in Glamorganshire, born about 1822. I also found an 1861 Wales Census for a Meyrig Thomas in Aberdare, born abt 1823. Will anyone please look at these census' & let me know if they shows any family members names & ages? I don't have access to the U.K. census records. I would very much appreciate it.
I can't find anything on Meyrick for an 1871 census record. The record I have for David's marriage in 1879 states either his or her father is deceased. It's a possibility that it's Meyrick that is deceased. I found a death record on FreeBMD for a Meyrick Thomas passing in 1864 & 1865. I know that Mary Ann remarries, Thomas Ellis, and she is still the age of having more kids. It's a possibility that in the 1871 census, she would be a Mary Ann Ellis with 3-4 children:

David Thomas
Catherine Thomas
Ann Thomas
Evan Ellis (I don't know when Evan was born)

I know that after Mary Ann married Thomas Ellis, they lived in Nelson, South Wales.

Any help would really be appreciated.
