Morel Shipping Co Cardiff
« on: Thursday 24 August 17 15:00 BST (UK) »
Hi
I have some photos of ship mates - apprentices with the Morel Brothers Shipping Co of Cardiff.  Written on the back is Taffy Eynon and cousin.  I presume being a Cardiff company it's likely the lads were from Cardiff or surrounding districts.  Can you shed any light on Taffy Eynon as I would like the family to have the photo.

To be honest I thought Taffy was like a nickname for a Welsh person like Jock for a Scottish person.

If you search for Taffy first name on BMD index not a lot comes up  :-\

You are exactly correct us Welsh boys are all Taffys' - Taffy is a nickname.  Okay, it is a case of looking for the needle!! but fingers crossed, someone just might recognise Taffy and claim the photo.

Hi Dannemois

My grandmother's maiden name was Eynon but the family was from Trimsaron in Carmarthenshire. The reason that I am replying to you is because the blonde young man in the photograph looks very much like my cousin's son and like her father when he was young. While none of my grandmother's brothers lived in Cardiff as far as I know, it is possible that maybe one of her uncles may have lived there. The likeness is quite uncanny so maybe there is a connection of some sort. Any idea of the year photograph was taken?
