Many thanks for looking again Roger.

One Baptism that I have seriously considered is this one:

First name(s)   EVAN
Last name   REES
Birth year   1811
Birth day   9
Birth month   Oct
Baptism year   1811
Baptism day   27
Baptism month   Oct
Baptism place   PYLE & KENFIG
Father's first name(s)   William
Mother's first name(s)   Lina
County   Glamorganshire
Country   Wales
Record set   Glamorgan Baptisms
Category   Birth, Marriage & Death (Parish Registers)
Subcategory   Births & baptisms.

Evan Rees' son George Rees named one of his daughter's Lena Rees; which makes me wonder about this one... (Also, if the 'Welsh Naming Pattern' was followed, Evan's Father would have been a William, - as this was the name he gave his eldest son).

Not totally sure of the location of Pyle and Kenfig though, - or if this denotes a Chapel?

Thanks osprey,

Well I suppose it's not that far away, and if you were moving to work as a Copperman, - then Swansea was the main destination?

not sure he would have been working in copper before living in Swansea area. The copper came in at Swansea docks and the smelting works spread along the river

According to 'Copperopolis', by Stephen Hughes:

'The first Swansea (Llangyfelach) Copper Works of 1717, situated at Landore, is discussed, (Page 20). It says that workers moved from surrounding areas to work here, notably from Neath, site of the melincryddan copper works.

And so I think it quite likely that some of my Rees ancestors might have moved to Llangyfelach to work in the Copper Works, as generations of them seem to have worked there.

Did he re-marry in 1861? The certificate might at least name his father.

No, - different Evan Rees sadly. I ordered that Marriage Cert and it definitely wasn't my relative who Married Mary Lloyd.(I will look it out again). I had initially thought it was him, because some of the children's names are the same, but different age and occupation for that Evan Rees. This one is 30yrs old, (in 1861) Occupation: Moulder. Father, William Rees, Engineer.

Something very strange here.The Evan in the 1861 census with Mary and Lloyd stepchildren is given as aged 50 and with a prior son Daniel,the only one with a  father Evan in 1851,it certainly looks like your man!
