  • Notes 
    • From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 2495 Folio 227 Page 17) Margaret, 3, was with her mother Mary, 33, Mariner's Wife, born Scotland, in Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With her were her siblings Mary, 6, Scholar and John 6 months. All the children were born in Aberdovey.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 4240 Folio 50 Page 4) Margaret, 13, was with her mother Mary, 43, Master Mariner's Wife Coasting Trade, born Scotland, in Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With her were her siblings Mary, 16, and John 10. All the children were born in Aberdovey.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 Piece 5602 Folio 28 Page 16) Margaret, 23, Master Mariner's Wife, was with her daughter, Margaret, 1, at Prospect Place, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales.

      From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 5478 Folio 42 Page 6), Margaret (Williams) is the Wife and Head of the family living at Dovey Terrace, Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales. She is married to Master Mariner and is living with her daughters Maggie, Mary Sillars, Annie Jane and Catherine, her son Richard and her mother Mary Rees.

      From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 4587 Folio 49b Page 12) she is 43 and has lost her husband. The family are now living at 22 Sea View Terrace, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. Her daughters Mary S(illars) and Elizabeth are still with her as well as her sons John and Archibald. Also in the household are visitors Alice L Crowther from Shropshire, Mary E Williams and Ethel W Williams from Oswestry Salop.

      The question arises who are Alice, Mary and Ethel? I wonder if they are all sisters and related to the Williams clan in some way? I have found Mary and Ethel in the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 2659 Folio 56 Page 3). They are residing at Victoria Road, Oswestry Town, Shropshire, England with their parents John and Mary Jane Williams. John is 31 and a Solicitors General Clerk from Llansilin, Denbigh, Wales while Mary Jane is 31 and a Solicitors Clerks Wife from Welshpool, Montgomery, Wales. They have a servant, Mary Edwards, 13, and a Lodger, Anne Salter, 59.
