LAWLESS of Tredegar
I an trying to find birth/family details of Susan Lawless from Tredegar.
She was born around 1871 in Tredegar and had 9 children with my ancestor, William Blease. The only information that I can find regarding her birth place is on the census records and her death details.
In 1891 she was living in Warrington with William and three children, Sydney, Beatrice and Louisa. The family name on the census was Lawless. I can find no evidence that Susan and William were married.
On the 1901 census, the family name is Blease, with one additional child, Ernest.
On the 1911 census she is a Blease again (census transcript error shows as Bleare) with two more children, Queenie and May.
As I cannot find anything about her birth or early life, I am suspicious that Tredegar was her birthplace. As far as I know, the Blease family had no links with South Wales.
Another suspicious fact is that Lawless was the maiden name of William's mother.
Her death registration index shows her as Susan Blease-Lawless, died 1914.
The baptism/birth details of the children show sometimes as Blease, sometimes Blease- Lawless and sometimes Lawless-Blease.
