I posted this generally, but thought it might be helpful to send it directly to you.
I have a John Bolwell born c.1840 Monmouthshire,father John (according to death certificate). Am looking for information on John and family prior to his migration to Australia in 1865.
What I have is:
FreeBMD has John Bolwell reg Dec 1840 Pontypool.
1841 census for Trevethin has Jane (1791), George (1826), Edward (1827), Martha (1834), Mary (1835), Sophia (1836), John (1839). Also Edward (1826) with Rogers family. Only Sophia and John listed as born in the county.
Baptism 02 Oct 1859 Abersychan of John Bolwell,19 yrs, boilermaker, residence Garn, parents John and Jane.
Marriage 11 Aug 1850 Llanhilleth - Edmund Wakley and Jane Bolwell (nee Lines), both otp, both widowed.
Information from another source is that there is an Albert Alfred Alexandra Bolwell b 1847, parents John Bolwell (b.1824) and Jane Lines (b1824).
John born c.1840 and Albert AA at least moved to Australia.
I'm assuming there is a relationship between all these people. Have not been able to find any of these people in 1851 or later. Any help greatly appreciated.
