Surnames we are researching
To use the vernacular “there are a shed load of Daniels connected to our family.” Many of them had the same name yet were from different families.
Captain Thomas Daniel (1802-1874) from Scotland was the second husband of Margaret Davies (1812-) from Llangelynin. She lost her first husband Captain Griffith Edwards (1812-1834) shortly after their marriage.
Edwards is yet another surname that crops up often.

Were these two families more closely related?
Until recently I only had these two children but I wondered why there was a 12 year gap between them. It turns out there were (possibly) another six between them: John (1807), Margaret (1809), Elizabeth (1811), Thomas (1813), David (1815) and William (1816). What of their families?
