James & Harriet Richards née Evans

Carol Jones recently sent me the marriage certificate for James Richards (my maternal 3 x great-uncle), who married Harriet Moss née Evans on 25 August 1873 in the Parish Church of St. Davids, Carmarthen. Both James and Harriet stated they were widowed. One of the witnesses was Charles Moss.

Carol, and I have both researched Harriet but cannot find any reference to a Harriet Moss in the previous censuses, or in the marriage indexes. However her father was listed as John Evans, a Labourer. Also in the 1881 census, her daughter Hannah Evans is living with James & Harriet.

Many thanks to Carol for providing the marriage certificate. This information will be included in the next website update.
