Birth for Francis?

Robatham, Francis Paull


On the 1891 census, the family seem to be at Machen, rather than Risca?

Family search has this from New York passenger crew lists .

Francisco P Robathan 5 Dev 1913 last residence Salatillo, Mexico. Age 32 years. Departure point

Also Alice Riches arrived 1905 from London. She appears to be without family members.

Thanks for all the info - I have accessed Ellis Island before and the only record is the one you found.

As to what other information I am looking for - I have a lot of data about the Robathan family, but want to expand the tree outwards so looking for links at great grandfather level - hence the 3 separate queries.

Keen to understand the Jamaica connection for Frances Elizabeth Muirhead Robathan's god mother. If she was born in Jamaica was she the offspring of plantation owner or slave?

Alice Enid Grace Riches travelled to Mexico to marry my grandfather Francis - recently found some photographs including the first one I have of her - she was a singer with Ivor Novello apparently but I have not so far found any info on this online.
