Re: Jane Harris born 1817 ,Egwyls Cymmun

In Reply to: Jane Harris born 1817 ,Egwyls Cymmun by Elisabeth Valev of 19128

The mrge of Benjamin Evans to Jane Harris in 1845 took place in one of the many parishes, chapels and/or registry offices covered by the Narberth Registration district in Pembrokeshire (which also covers some parishes in Carmarthenshire).
From the mrge certificate which church or chapel did the mrge take place in?
From the mrge certificate what is the name of Benjamin’s father. I presume the certificate shows Zephaniah Harris as father to Jane.

I note that whilst Benjamin may have been born at St Clears, he was returned to Eglwyscymmun to be baptized 07 Jan 1849. I wonder why Elizabeth does not appear baptized there or St Clears in 1845.

It would appear possible that Benjamin & Jane with family moved to Llandilo Fawr by 1861 through 1871

I can discover no mrge of a Zephaniah(many and various spellings) in Pembrokeshire or Carmarthenshire circa 1805 to 1820, from the mrge certificate of his daughter Jane what occupation does Zephaniah show in 1845, or indeed is he shown as “Dec”?

I would warn that if the family are Chapel related, we have only a very minute amount of N-C registers that survive and the chances of finding further Chapel entries may be extremely limited, however pre Sept 1837 all mrge must by law take place in the established church, so at least the mrge of Zephaniah should have been found with ease if it took place in Pembs or Carms.
