JAKEMAN Port Talbot Wales
« on: Saturday 09 September 17 03:39 BST (UK) »
Hi, I am new to this so please excuse me if I miss any protocols.  I am trying to trace my grandfathers family in Wales and am drawing a complete blank. I am searching for Benjamin Jakeman who was born in 1920 whose mothers surname was Davies. That is all the information I have been able to get so far and wondered if anyone could help?  He had two brothers, Charles and Alf (possibly Alfred).
Many thanks :)

Welcome to RootsChat  ;D

Looking at FreeBMD there is a birth record of a Benjamin L Jakeman with mother's maiden name Davies in Sept Qtr 1920  Neath   Vol 11a Page 2015   This area covers Port Talbot   His parents names would be included on the birth cert

Looking at other Jakeman births in Neath with mothers maiden name Davies there are the following which could be from the same parents

Harriett Ann Jakeman 1911
Edith Lavinia Jakeman 1912
Joseph Alfred Richard Jakeman 1914
Charles Henry Jakeman 1915

And a possible marriage for the parents in Neath - Joseph Jakeman to Edith May Davies March Qtr Neath  Neath Vol 11a   Page 1151  who should be together on the 1911 census but this is just a thought

Your really need to start with your grandfather's birth cert or if you already have his marriage cert to your grandmother this should confirm his father's name   Certificates can be ordered for 9.25 from the General Record Office www.gro.gov.uk - You need to register to order a cert

Welcome to RootsChat! ;D

From FreeBMD (www.freebmd.org.uk):

Births, December qtr 1874
Upton-on-Severn Registration District     vol 6c, page 355

Jakeman, Joseph     Mother's Maiden Name: Kendall

The 1911 census you have to find yourself (copyright issues), but the place of birth matches, although the year of birth is out! ;D
Probably because he is living with his in-laws, and his bride is somewhat younger! ;D

1911 census Joseph Jakeman - Edith with Edith's family.

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:XWXX-SWM

Joseph can be found on 1939 register, free to search index, credits or sub needed for full records.
http://www.findmypast.co.uk/1939register.

Joseph dies 1940, Edith M dies 1937 from https://www.freebmd.org.uk/cgi/search.pl Neath would be the reg district.

This is all so helpful, I am amazed and very grateful for your help. We have little information from this side of the family so this has really provided a good starting point. Thank you all :)
