Wales, Cymru (Country)
There are 13 traditional Welsh counties. These were abolished 1974 and new counties created. These in turn were abolished in 1996 and now there is a very confusing mix of authorities. Some of the authorities have taken the same name as the old traditional counties but do not have the same boundaries. CuriousFox is based upon the old traditional counties.

Pte John Owen, 4th Regt of Foot. born c1810
Looking for information about Private John Owen from 4th Regt of Foot. I believe he was born around 1810. His death certificate shows his parents names to be John and Susannah (possibly with different spelling). Owen was one of 49 soldiers of 4th Regt of Foot who left England on the ship LARKINS transporting convicts to Tasmania (Van Diemen's Land). The LARKINS sailed from Downs on 18 June 1831. It would seem he was well educated because he left the military in 1837 and became a school teacher in Parramatta NSW Australia.
red mail Theaker Ancestors
I am looking for Shirleanne who has the same Theaker ancestors, Henry and Ruth Theaker who lived in Sheffield, S. Yorkshire, England. Henry was born in 1845 and Ruth was born in Wolverhampton in 1846.
red mail Roberts - Williams connection
I have a known Williams family descendancy from 1750, and no knowledge of the origins of our original Thomas Williams, born about 1724/5. YDNA (male DNA) tests (so far) show our most closest link is to the surname Roberts - so am thinking that there may have been an adoption or a deliberate name change from Roberts to Williams. Any Roberts out there with a missing Thomas? Or any other thoughts. Looking at anything that may have happened prior to say 1760.
Allen Davies
Am looking for any descendants of Allen Davies, recorded in 1851 census for Sedgley, Staffs as son of Thomas Davies and brother to William. Born in @1837 in North Wales.

He was buried in Jul 1918 in Trucksville, Cedar Crest Cem, Pennsylvania, Luzerne County. He died on 10 Jul 1918 in , , Pennsylvania, Luzerne. Slept on his hands and knees! Knew the bible from front to back. Was able to read music (played violin) and must have been literate to read music.” also a reference to his wife Elizabeth “Possibly a lady in waiting to the Queen of England - was fired for marrying a Whelsch commoner”. He had seven children born between 1871 - 1895 Allegedly his wife was Elizabeth Bottoms born 1853 to Thomas and Mary in Co. Durham, UK (they were my 3x Great Grandparents).

Unfortunately we have no dob for Mary, and the place is also given as Wales. There is no marriageinformation, although we know that their first 7 children were born in Cardiff Wales, the first child to be documented to be born in the states was in the year 1888.

red mail Thomas Davis
On my paternal side I have a Great Grandfather, Thomas DAVIS born about 1829 in a place unknown, could be Wales. We do know his father was Charles DAVIS, date of birth and place unknown. We do know that Thomas Davis turned up in Adelaide, South Australia, Australia as a widower and in 1878 he married his second wife, an Ellen Jane JAMES b. 1853 in Brompton, Sth.Aust. Ellen parents were David and Sarah JAMES.(JONES) In 1879 a son, Henry Malcolm was born in Adelaide. We believe that Ellen died inchildbirth for her second child in 1883. Thomas died in 1886 in Windy Creek, Sth. Aust. Henry Malcolm was taken in as a State Ward at the age of 4 yrs until he was 12 years of age when he went to work in the mines. As a State Ward he was moved fromplace to place and had no record of his parents nor any mementos

We are searching for 6 Dawkins brothers, 3 of whom were Anglican Priests, who emigrated to America early 1600's. Perhaps these brothers left from a port in Wales or perhaps the family lived in Wales.
