Yes that was what I thought . But Thomas died in 1889 when his children were 14, 12, 10 and 7.

Brentnorboy,
Reread posts and see you had identified 1903/4 National Archives - apologies.

On the 1901 Census, Thomas, living in Pencoed, describes himself as "working at home". Prior to that I can see him managing a sweet factory in Pontypridd and showing prize poultry!

Gets more strange this thread, the picture frame printed address says 81 Wyeverne Street Cathays Cardiff

Can't find a (now or old) map or record -Yet ? that there was ever a street called Wyeverne Street in Cardiff. Yet there is a Wyeverne road Cathays Cardiff.

We have 2 links ( one Nat Archives and one Wales newspapers) with an address for T L Paviour 42 Wyeverne road, Cardiff (which is Cathays)


I can understand a document error ! or newspaper error with a ward  street or road but not a print address of a photographers own address on his  likely lots of his  photo frames.

In my opinion the marriage residence is not always the place of birth. Never forget Workhouse and overseers accounts records of birth

This is a 1901 map that shows the present Wyeverne Road named Upper George Street
https://www.old-maps.co.uk/index.html#/Map/318500/177500/12/100633

The map would have been drawn up some time before publication. Wonder of the name change around this period was causing some confusion?

1909 street directory of Cardiff mentions Wyeverne St in it's description of Thesiger Street (from Wyeverne Street to Woodville Road)

http://specialcollections.le.ac.uk/cdm/compoundobject/collection/p16445coll4/id/64252/rec/2

Mind you, if you then turn to the description of Wyeverne XXX, it only has a Wyeverne Road, (and describes it as formerly Upper George Street)
