Thomas John Pugsley
« on: Monday 13 November 17 16:43 GMT (UK) »
I wonder if anyone would be able to help me and have better luck tracking down my husbands great, great grandfather from the limited information I have

Thomas John Pugsley born approx 1871 in Somerset

from his marriage on 25th Jan 1896 to Sarah Ann Gillard he is Thomas John PUGSLEY, aged 25 and his father is also Thomas Pugsley

1901 census
Thomas Pugsley aged 30 living in Dinas, Rhondda   born in 'Somersetshire' with his wife and two children

His death in 1905 in Pontypridd has him just as Thomas Pugsley

Thanks in advance for reading this

Does the move from somerset to glamorganshire fit into other things you know about your family? The pugsley name is fairly common in that area of wales so perhaps there were family connections and also the area was a big coal mining area.

This one appears to be the son of Thomas Javier Pugsley and Ann Venn and seems to have married Mary Jane Ward in 1891.

The Pugsleys of Dulverton might nonetheless be still worth looking at . The groindex has mmn as Johns for John Thomas Pugsley. There is this marriage in Dulverton - May 20th 1872 Thomas Pugsley (widower) and  Elizabeth Johns but 1871 census has this

Thomas Pugsley 59 Ag lab widower
Elizabeth Johns 28 Step daughter unmarried
Frank Yeandle 5 Grandson

Address Higher Spire, Dulverton (baptism of JohnThomas High Spiers).

Possible death for above Thomas Puglsey 1876.

If nothing else a potentially intriguing set up!

I believe Sarah was born 1879 in Llanwonno to Thomas Gillard and Ellen Walters (I can't find her birth registration but she's listed with them as daughter
