I am confused as to whether Monmouth is in England or Wales. My 2nd great grandfather was William Henry Challenger of Camerton, Somerset Cty, England. His first wife was Ruth Rees. I was always told she was from Monmouthshore, England. I recently obtained their marriage certificate. Their marriage was solemnized at the Parish Church in the Parish of Llanfoist in the county of Monmouth. It is in the registration district of Abergavenny. The certificate itself has the seal of England on it, and it is in both English and Welsh.
Can someone clarify this for me? I would appreciate any help. (Not to mention, if anyone has info on this Ruth Rees-father John Rees-feel free to share that too!)
Sincerely, Ellen Diepediep@att.net
