Fussells from abergwynfr/Pontypridd
« on: Friday 06 March 09 16:26 GMT (UK) »
Trying to find information on Doris Fussell (1905) who married her cousin Matthews
her parents were called Benjamin Fussell (1873) her mother   was Annie  Matthews (1874)
her siblings were Alfred(1898) David (1899) William(1900) Benjamin(1901)
Gomer (1902)my grandmother  Elizabeth (1908) and Alice (1910) I think there was also a Sarah but not sure.
Any help finding info on any of the Fussells or Matthews would be greatfully received.
regards

Hi Chelle,

What do ya wanna know about Auntie Doris?   Should have asked me.   Oh, yes, there was a sister Called Sarah Fussell born 1912 at Merthyr. died aged 1, same time as Gomer Fussell born 1902, he was 11 when he died. Think it was a freak acct with an Ash Cart.

Your Little Sis  xx

My 2x great grandmother was an Eleanor Fussell.
Your Benjamin, christened 11th May 1873, privately, and again in Dunkerton church publicly with his brothers,17th October 1878, makes an appearance in her family tree as a distant cousin.
I can provide you with details of his Fussell ancestors going back a further 6 generations, mostly in the parishes of Dunkerton and Hemington, which were both owned by the same gentry family.
regards
Andrew
