Hi, I am hoping someone could help me.
My 3x great grandfather Hugh Griffiths married my 3x great grandmother in 1874 in Haverfordwest. I requested his marriage certificate in order to trace his father. Unfortunately his fathers name isn't on the marriage certificate. Why could that be? Can anyone help me? Is there another way I could find out who his parents were? I tried to find his birth certificate by applying for one with the GRO but unfortunately as I didn't know his precise DOB they couldn't find him.
This is what I know of him ...
Hugh Griffiths possibly born in 1841. He married Eliza Evans in Haverfordwest in 1874. There has been talk that he was from Penybwlch but I am unsure. He was a slater at the time of his marriage and lived in Hottipas street (I think). His wife Eliza was also born around 1841 and she was living in Gilvach LLanychaer with her father William Evans who was a farmer.
I would be grateful for any help.
Thank you. Xx
