Hi
I hope the information below is helpfull It shows the family in Sirhowy, which is close to Dukestown and Rassa.
The below is from the 1891 Welsh Census.

1891 Wales RG12/ 4357/78 p 2
         
32 First Row,  Sirhowy, Tredegar   
         
William Bevan   Head   53   
Margaret Bevan   Wife   52   
Thos Bevan   Son   25   
William Bevan   Son   22   
Ann Bevan   Daughter   17   
Mary Bevan   Daughter   15   
John Bevan   Son   12   

William, Thomas and William Jnr are all Coal miners and Ann is a dresssmaker. All born Llangynidre.

If you want me to look further please let me know. As said by previous postings the north end of the Ebbw and Sirhowy valleys were part of Breconshire and they were therefore probably born in the Rassa area.

Happy Hunting

Tinker

Hi thanks for the reply,
I can find them in every census from 1871 to 1911.
I've tried but I  just cant find them in 1841,51 or 61.

I know that william bevan, who was my gggrandfather, got married in 1864 to margaret griffiths, and that is them on the 1891 census.
William bevans father was also called william bevan.
Ive found a possibility on the 1851 census, a william bevan with a son called william bevan,born about 1839 living in Rassa Houses and married to ann bevan.That could be them.

Could you look on the 1841,1851 or 1861 censuses for them?
Maybe somebody else would be able to spot them.
Maybe i will  have to wait for the parish records on findmypast or buy some certificates to find out more.

Thanks

Hello Again

I will run through the cenus's and see what I can find. I actually live in Rassa and have collected some information on the area. Not great but it might be useful. I will get back to you ASAP. Preparing for my grandsons birthday at the moment.

Cheers

Tinker

Hi there. Hopefully you will receive this even if a couple of years later!
it might be helpful top know that in 1915 there was a change of boundaries.
Dukestown, Scwrfa and parts of Sirhowy which beforehand had been in Brecknockshire, were attached to the town of Tredegar in Monmouthshire.
Might help ....
Tredegar has a great site online.

Hi,
Thanks for that information, it gets very confusing with all the boundary changes.
