Margaret Williams born 1852/1853

Margaret Williams born 1852/1853

Surnames: Williams of Llansilin
Hello I am trying to find out about my great great Grandmothers family Margaret Williams. I am struggling to find any information on this side of the family. I know her Fathers name was Robert Williams and in 1877 he was working at "The Mount" when she married William Heatley in Liverpool. I also know for a fact she was the youngest daughter. The forementioned details I know are correct. I suspect she was born in Llansilin. I think this is her Family from a census and that she was also in Cefn Canol and I think these are her family members

Father Robert Williams born 1814/1820/1821/1823 Bala
Mother Margaret born 1817 Llansilin
Brother Edward Born 1842 Llansilin
William Born 1846 Llansilin
Sister Mary Born 1850 Llansilin
Brother Robert Born 1862 Llansilin

I have been looking for ages and I really can't seem to get any further than this. Would anyone know if births and may be marriages were actually recorded in Oswestry? Any help would be appreciated

Thanks

Matthew

I have found all of the children you listed in the Oswestry registration district with the MMN Edwards, I can find no other complete set with a different MMN:-

BUT there were other Williams/Edwards couples breeding in the area at the same time, this is just 1849 to 1853:-

My advice would be to buy the birth certificate direct from the Wrexham Regoster Office specifying her father's name as Robert, that way IF it is not the right Margaret you get your money back, but no certificate!

This looks like the family before Margaret was born in 1851 census.
They are living at Cefn Canol which is where Margaret says she was born in 1891 census.

Thank you and my apologies for the delay in replying. I appreciate the time and effort you have taken to look into this. Could I ask how did you come to the Mothers Maiden name of Edwards? Its just I have had no prior knowledge that this may have been the maiden name as I had not found any marriage records or anything to indicate it was. Good advice also on requesting birth certificates. I'd really like to visit however I live in NZ and a trip to the UK is a little way off at this stage. Thanks again for your help
