Want information about Margaret Thomas, who married William Edmunds either in Dinas, Wales or Georgetown Tasmania.

+3 votes
I have found information to say that my great Grandfather , William Edmunds, married Margaret Thomas. The information is conflicting in that one lot says they were married in Dinas Wales in 1868 and a second lot says that they were married in Georgetown Tasmania.

Margaret was born, I think, in Cefn Coedcymmer Glamorgan Wales. 1849 or 1850

William was born in Ystradfodwg, Methyr Tydfil, Glamorgan Wales, born 13/11/1845 died 11/5/1901

Tasmanian records say that they were married in 1879 in George Town  Tasmania, and had six children-Jemina May b 1879,Albsrt Edward b 1881, Samuel Douglas b 1883, Lemuel Henry, b 1885 Sarah Rebecca,b 1887 and George Gordon b 1889.

Details on Margaret Thomas were not given, but am till looking and wil lpost if I find anything further.

Actually, if you are looking at the Colonial Links site it says they were married by 1879 but no marriage record has been located which definitely belongs with that family.  That's what the '@' symbol means before the date.

They were deemed married by that date because the first record found was the birth of Jemima Mary in 1879.

What record shows the two possible locations?  Are you going by death certificates of the parents, perhaps?

If married in Australia,you would need too order and pay for that record.

Most areas in Australia charge for records.Not all are released.
