  • Notes 
    • From Gwenda:
      Henry married Hannah Jones in Llanasa church on 1st February 1836; the witnesses were Robert & Mary Jones. In the Llanasa baptism register on the 27th March 1836 they baptised a daughter Hannah, Henry was a Labourer from Greenfield. It looks like Hannah the mother died after child birth as there's a burial entry on the same day as the baptism for Hannah Atherton aged 19 from Greenfield, probably they baptized the baby over the coffin as was the old custom.
