    William Laurence Banks:-

    Married Jane Emily Williams 1850 Conway 27 569
    1851 census HO107/2489/424/9 - William is a solicitor
    Lucy Esther born June qtr 1851 Brecknock 26 298
    William Davies Morris born March qtr 1853 Brecknock 11b 114
    John Beaumont born March qtr 1857 Brecknock 11b 101
    1861 census Emily is alone with the children (and servants!) RG09/421265/14
    In occ it says "wife of W L Banks Sol & Mayor FSA"
    Jane Emily dies Sept qtr 1863 Brecknock 11b 71
    1871 census RG10/5591/17/12 William is now married to Elizabeth Maria
    1881 census RG11/5571/6/6
    Hannah Maria Richards (sister of Elizabeth - it says so on the census) is living with them
    I still have not found the marriage
    1883 Lucy Esther marries Allen Calvely McEwen (the image is on FMP)
    1885 Allen dies (his will is on FMP, and he names his wife as Lucy Ellen)
    1891 census RG12/4632/52/1
    Lucy is back home (Anc have her transcribed as Banks - it says McEwen Wid. on the original)
    There is a death reg for William Laurence March qtr 1893 Conway 11b 364
    William Laurence died 28/1/1893
    Probate of William Lawrence (sic) on Anc. £351 12/3
    Lucy Died 11/2/1895

    I cannot find Elizabeth Maria after 1891, nor can I find a death

    There is a further probate entry for William Lawrence Banks in 1911 upload_2017-9-5_9-0-25.png

    Annie Harriett MeKellar Banks is the wife of William's son William Davies Morris Banks.

    Quite why I have no idea.

    There is a death reg for Elizabeth Maria Banks in Kensington age 65
    (June qtr -1a 80)
    I originally discounted this one but I have since found a burial in Anglesey -
    Coedana her address noted as 13 Chapel Road, London
    Elizabeth Maria Banks 24/5/1894 age 65

    So perhaps William Laurence's will was not sorted before she died thus the other probate entry in 1911

    I would like to pass on a message from the friend who I have been researching this family for. I told her that the members of this forum helped a great deal with the research.

    This was posted on a link to Top Dog on facebook.

    I didn't know how to thank Terry for all that he has done doing my mothers family tree, he has done a fantastic job in just one week !!!! I now know my family history back to 1790, my dad who is 84 is absolutely over the moon with this, as is my brother !!! I'm not a member of this site but I'm leaving this on the comments so that hopefully he will see !!! THANKYOU

    So she sends a huge thank you to you all for your help, as do I.

    It so was Ann, my friend was over the moon :)

    She was telling another bloke in the pub, after I left, looks like there may be some more research in the future :)

    I aught to start charging, but nah, it wouldn't be a hobby then.

    That's how my 'hobby' has grown over the past few months Terry, first a friend, then another friend, then a neighbour........but I love it and find it difficult to try and persuade some people that I really don't want anything for doing it.

    found this site through a general google search looking for someone else!
    anyway, I'm a direct descendant of Richard Banks and would be happy to share what (little!) info I have on the family

    Hi bean and welcome to the forum C|:-)

    I was researching this family for a friend of mine. Actually I couldn't remember who I had researched it for until I read through it and found the 'Banks Davies' reference.

    My friend is a direct descendant too.

    From her grandparents back

    Hugh Philip 1914 - 1965 + Greta Rosaline Penfield
    Philip Theodore 1886 - 1953 + Helen Mary Wiatt
    Hugh Powel 1853 - 1920 + Mary Antoinette Perry Marsh
    James 1820 - 1883 + Frances Helen Young
    Richard 1791 - 1871 + Esther Davies
    Lawrence Banks + Ann Sladden
