Is it William and Eliza with children Thomas and Dorothy in 1851?
If so,it may be worth considering that Eliza is with an Enos Davies in 1861 in Llangattock with Dorothy,using the Davies surname(I can't see a marriage).Enos appears as a bachelor in 1851,so a daughter born 1842 looks suspiscious!Just a theory.......

There is a Daily Post article from July 1943 re the DFC award,which,as well as having a photo,details his parents address and references an older and a younger brother,together with some minor biographical details.It can be seen on FindMyPast.

Thanks for that Gadget.
I realise there is not new information,but I thought the age given for William(senior) at that date might help with distinguishing baptisms.

My knowledge of Welsh is limited,but I'm fairly sure the "obituary" below for William Jones says his father W.Jones is still alive in 1882 in Dolyddelen(sic),aged 93,and he can be found with Anne in the 1881 census,with the dates you suggest in a property called Pistyll Gwyn

If this is the Victorian version,it's definitely not it!

Wasn't the fire in 1960,then restoration to the 1936 version?

I'm not confident myself.The current building is presumably the 1936 rebuild,post dating the Edwardian photos we are trying to match.Really need a clear pre 1936 image.

P.S.I was hoping the initials might be ECP with 1849 being the birthdate of Elizabeth Parsons who married in 1865-rather fanciful,I know.

A very long shot,but could it be Hinton House,Hinton Ampner before the 1936 rebuild,said to be based on the original(?)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hinton_Ampner

It's not a huge distance away from the IOW ferry!

The occupying family in the second half of the 19th century are Duttons.I have struggled,but so far failed to make any link to an 1865 St Albans marriage of a Thomas Dutton to an Elizabeth Parsons.

He looks to be the son of John and Margaret Price,seen at Llwyncutta(?),Nantmel in the 1841 census.
