Hi bykerlad,
Do you have marriage date, and any idea of where they lived? We may be able to track backwards from there perhaps.

Sorry,i didn't give much information in my original post and thank you for the swift reply.
They had their first child Thomas in 1889,i think in the Pwllheli area in Carnarvon so i am guessing the marriage would have been around that time but you never know.They also had William,Mary,Ann and i think another Daughter Ellen.This information is from older family members but unfortunately they cannot help with the Mother.
It's the Wife,Jane who i cannot trace and my tree is incomplete without her and her Parents or siblings.
Once again,many thanks for your reply and offer of help which is much appreciated.

Hi Bykerlad - it may be that this is their 1891 census entry. William Roberts with wife Jane and son Thomas. (I found this on <findmypast> although you will need to examine census to be sure.)

ROBERTS, William Head Married Male 27 Agricultural Labourer
Born: 1864 Tydweiliog, Carnarvonshire.
ROBERTS, Jane Wife Married Female 26 Born:1865.Llangybi,Carnarvonshire.
ROBERTS, Thomas Son Male 2
Born: 1889,Llangybi,Carnarvonshire.

RG number:RG12 Piece:4650 Folio:139 Page:5
Registration District:Pwllheli Sub District:
Criccieth Enumeration District:12 Ecclesiastical Parish:Llangybi
Civil Parish:Abererch Municipal Borough:Pwllheli
Address:Parcian, Glasfryn, Abererch, Four Crosses, Pwllheli County:Caernarvonshire.

I would try and find them in 1901 and 1911 census, where you may be fortunate to find a helpful parent living with them.

Some of the children are highly likely to be named after their grandparents.

It will be tricky to be SURE, particulalrly with Welsh surnames.

I would check out probable registration district for Llangybi(Genuki should give that info.) then try <freebmd> to narrow down Jane's birth.

It will be a question of matching father's names at the marriage, to the birth certs for Jane and William.

On <freebmd> there are several marriages for Willam Roberts to Jane between 1887 and 1889, but not so many in Carnarvonshire.
Check it out, but this one seems a possibility?
Quote: March quarter 1889 and 11b 580 to get the birth cert from County Record Office or General Record Office (on line).
Roberts William Carnarvon 11b 580
Thomas Jane Carnarvon 11b 580

You should check the parish register or buy the copy cert from the GRO to be sure.

Hope that is some help.
Good luck, let us know how you get on.

Happy to be a little help.
I was looking for the reg. district, here is the link to genuki for Caernarvon County:
< http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/CAE/ >
go to Civil Registration for specifics.
Don't miss the link to "Caernarvon Towns & Parishes" at the top of the page.
Have fun.
