    That's understandable, she'd only spend it on handbags and shoes :D :D

    Does anyone know when his wife, Catherine died and was buried?

    I wonder if Mary didn't get anything cause she had married Thomas James and they already had money?

    Can anyone find births for Richard and his siblings. Maybe if we find their parents we may find a birth for Mary with the same parents?

    Looking for Catherine - 5 deaths in Hay to check.

    Confused re Mary - which Mary are we looking for?

    If Catherine's age on the 1841 census is correct, then the death registered in the Sep Quarter of 1841 could be hers.

    Catharine DAVIES age 70 - Hay Union. Volume 26 Page 221

    As she is not mentioned in James' will (from memory), assume she died before him.

    Thanks. Been trying to keep up, but must have missed the bit about James' sister Mary having an illegitimate daughter.

    A Richard Davies was baptised 27 Dec 1768, Hay. Parents are Henry and Mary, but haven't been able to find a baptism of either a John or James with the same parents.

    It's certainly the right time. I'm not convinced that FMP has all the BMDs from Hay and so the odd sibling may be missing. James Davies is a very good example.

    Of course the Davies's may have had dissenting tendencies but I've not found anything promising in the non-conformist records.

    Just edited my post as left parents off. Glad it's not just me that couldn't find the others.

    Probably a co-incidence, but a Richard Davies married a Jane Beavan in 1787.

    There was a son Richard James DAVIES baptised in 1793 - parents Richard and Jane. Haven't looked to see if he survived though.

    Do we know if brother Richard married?

    No. Richard, Ann and John are brand new finds this morning.

    I like that Jane Beavan find - well worth following up.

    Thanks @Sis

    In Joyce's will she says she leaves mony to Mary James and her daughter Mary Ann breeze. She then says she leaves mony to her nieces and nephews and names each one individually. Her nephews and nieces are also the children of Mary james. So maybe picking out Mary Ann specifically because she was the daughter of Mary Davis before she married Thomas James, Joyce's brother.
