red mail Jenkins, Roberts
Samson and Jockey Roberts (brothers) moved to Pontypridd from the South of England to start a scrap metal business. Jockeys real name was William. At some point Jockey returned South, and Samson spent time in Newport before settling in a village called Aberkenfig. My concern is Samson's daughter Gentila (also mistranscribed as Genty, Jentela etc) who met a David Jenkins in Pontypridd, (he was born 1886 in Pontypridd, father named John Jenkins a coal miner) and on the 1911 census is camped in woods in Abersychan with him and their baby Celia born 1910. My particular interest is that the baby 'disappeared' from the family and was never spoken of. We've traced her forward, including buying her marriage cert, and so we know she didn't die. She did keep her Jenkins surname til marriage so wasn't adopted, unless by her fathers family. Gentila later remarried and had 3 children (one my grandmother) who knew nothing about little Celia. David had a sister Rachel Jenkins born 1889 in Pontypridd. Thankyou, sorry very long winded!!

red mail Thompson/Moss
I'm doing family research for a friend. Her grandfather James THOMPSON married Alice Violet MOSS on 10 July 1910 at the parish church of St Peter, St Paul, Mitcham. According to their marriage certificate at the time of the marriage James lived at 18 Oakwood Avenue and Alice at 3 Kemps Cottages. Her father George MOSS was a coffee house keeper and James's father James was a miner. After the two were married they moved to Pontypridd in Wales where their son Henry George THOMPSON was born in 1912. Father James went off to war and died on the battlefields leaving mother and child. As a result Henry George was placed in an orphanage at about age two until his mother remarried several years later and was taken home. We would love to know anything about this family particularly the Thompson side of the family and also which orphanage the child was placed in. Kind regards, Gay
red mail Albert R. Rees b.07/03/1912 - d. Jan 2003
Hi there, This is probably a huge shot in the dark but I was wondering if anyone has any information on my great grandfathers biological mother, my great grandfather was born in 1912 in the Pontypridd district and his mother died in childbirth after which he was adopted. I'm not entirely sure what his mothers name was or even if her surname was Rees although I'm pretty sure it was because my great grandfather was an illegitimate child. Maybe he was born in the workhouse?? If anyone has any information on her and her family i'd be truly grateful. Thank you

Arthur Henry Cooper
Arthur Henry Cooper (born 02 Sep 1878 Dinedor, Hereford) was a twin. His sister, Barbara Ellen Cooper (1878-1962) was institutionalised for much of her life, initially into Newport Workhouse after giving birth illegitimately to Mary Ann Cooper. Arthur Henry has been tracked through censuses to Pontypridd in 1911. To this point he seems to have been unmarried and was employed for most of his adult life to that point as a coal miner, underground. However, we lose track of him until a very likely death reference in 1935 which records his residence still in Pontypridd but his death after being knocked down by a motor car, aged 57 years, occurred in The Royal Infirmary, Cardiff on 9th June, 1935. We are very keen to receive anything that firmly links this death to 'our' Arthur Henry and also to contact anyone who has anything to help fill in the large gap in this narrative. We also need anything that might enlighten us about Barbara Ellen Cooper who appears to have been known for most of her life as simpley 'Ellen'.
red mail Roberts / Davies Pontypridd
My grandma Clarice Roberts has links to Pontypridd: was married here in around 1945 and she worked at the Parsons Bakery around that time. She had lived as a child in another part of Wales but I don't know where. Her father was one Hughie Roberts but apparently he abandoned the family and ran off to London. The family rumour mill also suggests her mother, Jane or Jenny (I think her maiden name was Davies or Edwards) killed herself in later years. The family lived in poverty, and my Nan was a social climber who covered up her past (lying about her age and background). Her brothers were Cledwyn and Kenny and her sister was known as Pat. Rumour mill also suggests that Hughie might have been a rag and bone man, although my Nan called him a 'merchant' - any information gratefully received!

Annie Price b. 1897. Annie may have moved to Austrailia. 2. Agnes Price b. 1899. 3. Barbara Ellen Price b. 1900. 4. Trevor Price b. 1907. William and Margery are operating a hotel near Pontypridd in 1911. I am certain that William served with the British forces in the Great War as I have a letter written to his Uncle in the USA in 1916 describing some of his war experiences. This letter would be of great interest to any of his descendents and I would be happy to share it. I think it is possible that William and Margery separated and divorced sometime after 1911. William may have remarried someone named Louise. I would be happy to hear from anyone researching this family.

I am trying to uncover any information about my late father, Edward David Llewelyn, who was born in 1899, he had an older brother Evan John, and his father also named Edward was born in Pontypridd. My father I know was born in Stockport, to Edward and his wife Margaret Ann who I believe was born in Cardiff. The family later moved to Pontypridd. Edward was a Printer's Compositor, and Margaret a Publican. They seem to have moved about quite a lot, maybe a result of her occupation. My father had an older brother named Griffith who died in an accident aged 12 years. My father moved to Swansea where I think his family finally settled He Married Millicent Mitchell in 1933, and had three children. Until the late 1950 and into the 1960's my father kept in close contact with a cousin named Thomas (Tommy) whose wife was named Gwen. He had at least two sons, a daughter named Janet, d.o.b. approx. 1930s,one named Gwenda?1940 and younger daughter whose name escapes me. I remember visiting them and I think they lived in Dyffryn Road. If anyone has any information on this family it would be wonderful.

Ethel Gomer-Lewis
I am seeking information relating to this lady, born in Pontypridd about 1897 - she died in Weybridge aged 92 in 1989. She was a mezzo soprano, and was a National Eisteddfod solo contest winner 7 times I believe. Her second husband was the father of actor Rupert Davies (TV Maigret). I believe she also 'appeared' in the old Welsh Rarebit radio series and gave organ solos at the Grand Pavilion in Porthcawl. Any information would be greatly appreciated - I have been told that she was a first cousin to my husband's grandfather (Ivor Llewelyn Jenkins) but from present research am unable to make the link and wonder whether 'the link' is through Ivor's mother, Elizabeth Llewelyn. She was born in Merthyr Tydfil on 15th May 1854 - daughter of Daniel Llewelyn and Ann Davis (Davies?) She married Daniel Jenkins on 10th June 1876 and they lived in Pontypridd. Elizabeth was the eldest of 7 children, the others being Jemima, Evan, William, Mary Ann, Daniel and Catherine. All the children were born in Merthyr, other than Catherine who was born in Pontypridd round about 1873. If anyone has any information whatsoever regarding any of these people I would be so grateful to hear from them in the hope that I can make 'the link' on my 'Tree'. Many thanks.

I am trying to find more information about the Davies family. In 1901 Martha b.1852 is living in Williams Place, Upper Boat with husband Isaac DAVIES B.1846 and children John and Bertha. She also has two other children Mary Ann and William. In 1915 Martha drowned in the Upper Boat canal. The death was brought in as suicide caused by temporary insanity but the family have maintained that Isaac may have caused her death. Obviously this is intriguing and I would like to know more about the family. Bertha died without children of her own and we do not know what happened to John or William. I would be grateful for any info.
