  • Notes 
    • From the 1841 Census (HO107 Piece 1372/17 Folio Page 5, courtesy of Meriel and Ian Haynes), we find 3 year old Eliza(beth) at home with her parents, David and Ann, in Morfa Borth, Aberystwyth, Cardigan. Her parents are both aged 30 and her father is a Mariner. Her sister Ann(e) (7) and brother John (5) are also present.

      From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 2495 Folio 220 Page 2) Elizabeth, 11, was with her parents David, 43, a Master Mariner, and Ann, 44, at Glyndwr, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With her were her siblings Ann, 16, and John, 14.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 4240 Folio 73 Page 2) Elizabeth, 22, a Milliner, was at home in Alma Terrace, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With her was her 6 month old daughter Ann Elizabeth and a 13 year old General Servant by the name of Elizabeth Davies from Llanfihangel Genau'r-Glyn, Cardiganshire.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 Piece 5602 Folio 37 Page 34) we understand that Elizabeth (Williams) was living somewhere in the High Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. She is the Wife and Head of the household, is married and is a Bonnet Maker. Her age is given as 32 and she hails from Borth, Cardigan. Her children Ann(ie) Elizabeth, Mary, Margaret(t)a, Lizz(i)e and Owen are with her along with a servant by the name of Elizabeth Davies. Visitors to the household are her brother John Davies, age 35, a Master Mariner from Borth, Cardigan and his wife Amelia and their children David and Jane Ann.

      From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 5478 Folio 50 Page 21) we see that the family have moved to Church Street, Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales. Elizabeth, 42, a Sailor's Wife was still the head of the household as Captain Owen was busy in Milford Haven aboard the 'Olive Branch'. With her were her children Annie Elizabeth, 20, a General Servant, Mary, 18, a Dressmaker, Scholars Owen, 10, David John, 8, Susannah, 6, and Jane Ellen, 4, along with Thomas Owen, 2, and my Taid, John Davies, 2 months.

      Elizabeth, died in 1882 and Captain Owen's ship the 'Olive Branch' is referred to on her gravestone in Maethlon (Happy Valley) cemetery.
