Mary Jones B. c1844 Tredegar
My G.G. grandmother was called Mary Jones B circa 1844 in Tredegar, S. Wales. She married John Davies, B. circa 1844 in Manchester. He was a Bill Poster. My problem is that in the 1851 census there were 3 Mary Jones, all born circa 1844 in Tredegar. 1. Mary Jones D/O Thomas & Rachel Jones, 40 Church St. Tredegar. 2. Mary Jones D/O Thomas & Elizabeth Jones,67 Spout Row,Tredegar 3. Mary Jones D/O Ebenezer & Mary Jones, 54 Spout Row, Tredegar. I don't know which one married John Davies from Manchester. They travelled the country together with John's work, their children being born in several different towns. They eventually settled in Doncaster, Yorkshire, where my mother was born. I should be grateful if anyone knows any Jones family from Tredegar, or any descendants of these 3 Mary Jones.

Hi I am trying to locate birth details on Ivor John Lynch born 3 May 1908. His father was Michael Lynch who was born Macroom Ireland abt 1883, he migrated to Australia in 1911. I have not been able to find any details of his registered birth anywhere. First record was the 1911 census. I have no details of his mother as she apparently died abt 1909/1910. Ivor was bought up by his uncle and aunt Patrick and Rose Lynch who were living in 1911 at 28 Church St Penrhiwceiber Glamorgan. Ivor married in 1936 to Vera Woodbridge, worked for a time in the army and then later during WW2 in the Merchant Navy as a carpenter and then the family immigrated to Australia in 1948 to join his father here. If anyone has any information I would be much appreciative. Thank you Bev

red mail Bach/Beach/Moon
Trying to find details of James Bach (aged 20) who married Sarah Ann Moon (aged 22) at the Registry Office, Tredegar in July 1872. They lived at 38 Pochin Crescent and had three children, Elizabeth A born abt 1874, William Arthur (our great grandfather) born in 1876 and Alice born abt 1881. On the 1881 Wales census Sarah Ann is recorded as being a widow but we can find no record of a birth or death for her husband James Bach, who was a steelworker. Sarah Ann died as Sarah Ann Beach in December 1891 at 38 Pochin Crescent, the Bach family name, by then, having been anglicised to Beach. Would be very grateful for any information.

Thomas Vivian b. Jul 1859; Henry Isaac Brown
I am attempting to find information on Thomas Vivian who was the first husband of my great aunt, Amelia Brown. Although she was born in Midsomer Norton, Somerset, her family lived in Tredegar before leaving for America in 1882. He died in Nanticoke, Luzerne, Pennsylvania in late May/early June (buried 02 June) 1902 of miner's asthma. He may have also later married Eliza ___. Some records note he was the son of James and Philipa __ Vivian and that he may have been born in St. Austell, Cornwall. That is only a possibility since I have no verified information about him other than word of mouth from his great granddaughter, who is my first cousin, once removed. Henry Isaac Brown, my great-grandfather, was the father of Amelia, Elizabeth, Louisa, Mary Ann, George Henry, William James, and Gilbert Abraham (born in either Midsomer Norton or Tredegar), plus my grandmother, Melinda, the only one born in the U.S. He was a blacksmith.
