Thomas John Evans b1885 d 1929
I am researching the family of the above, on behalf of a granddaughter. Thomas John married Ida Mary Whitham in Skipton in 1918. At the time of his death he was a police sergeant in West Riding constabulary. After the death of Thomas, Ida remarried in Karachi 1931 to Albert Porteous. The parents of Thomas John are thought to be David Evans and Elizabeth Jenkins, and he had 4 siblings,namely David E b 1881,Benjamin b1891, Evan b1892 and Sarah b 1898.In 1901 the family can be found living in Tredegar. Any help with information on ancestors of the parents of David and Elizabeth or any information on the life of Ida Mary after the death of Thomas John would be appreciated. Bert

I am trying to find the baptism of my Gt.Gt.Gt.Grandfather William Jarrett who was born in the county of Brecon in 1762. I have searched many parishes without success. He later moved to Bristol and married Ann ? Their son James Alfred Jarrett was born there in 1811; they all moved to London and I have been able to trace them from there. I would be pleased to hear from anyone with any links to Brecon. Thank you

red mail William Thomas and Thomas Williams
Has anyone a William Thomas, in fact ANY person with the surname Thomas, whose son bore the father's given name as a surname. I am searching for any Thomas (or Williams) forbears or relatives of Thomas Williams, born likely around 1724 or 1725, could be earlier but not later. He was likely sponsored to Plasterer's (Plaisterers) Hall and / or Jesus College, (his family may have even moved to England (London possibly). He later became the pastor at the Independent Chapel in Gosport in 1750 and died 1770. There must be recorded information or correspondence somewhere, and he refers to 'relatives in Wales' in his will. Associated surnames that may crop up in related correspondence may be Hurrion or Marryatt or Marriott. He married a Rebecca Isger (Isgar or other spellings)

red mail Howell
I am looking for a relative Howell Powell born January 1, 1783, a native of Brecknockshire, Wales. It is said he went to England and secured work as a gardener on an estate of the family Richards. He fell in love and eloped with their only daughter and returned to Brecon, Wales where he took on the name Howell Francis or Howell Francis Powell. Our family history recorded in 1938 mostly from both research and word of mouth (family records dating back to at least the 1600s were lost to a fire) says we are related to the Powell ap David Rawling/Catherine Gough line of 1611, however we seem to be missing a generation approximately 1725 to 1780, as we don't know the parents of Howell Powell, nor can we find the family of Mary Ann Richards. Please help.
