Rebecca Thomas nee Edwards Ynysybwl born 1873
« on: Sunday 31 December 17 18:54 GMT (UK) »
looking for any info at all. Can't seem to find records of her birth. She is on the 1881 census as living with her aunt at the Colliers Arms. Think her dad might be Edmund but not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Someone has an anc tree with the name as Hannah Rebecca June 1873 - Ynysybwl, South Wales  ???

The source record they give doesn't quite tally - Rebecca Edwards - Q3 - 1874 - Pontypridd Glamorgan - 11a 350

I didn't see a birth under Hannah Rebecca Edwards in 1873 or 1874  :-\

They also give the father as Edmund - 18 March 1844 - Eglwysilan, Glamorgan, Wales
passed away December 1921 - Ynysybwl, Glamorgan

If this is not you, it would give a contact to compare notes.

Do you know her mother's maiden name? There is a birth of a Rebecca Edwards in the June quarter of 1873, in Pontypridd, mother's maiden name Evans. Vol 11a, p327

Do you know the one at the Colliers arms is definitely your Rebecca as her age is given as 6 (born 1875).

There is another Rebecca Edwards in 1881, in Pontypridd, aged 7, parents Thomas and Ann, with 4 younger siblings. She may well be the JuneQ 1873 birth as there is a school record for Coedpenmaen, dad Thomas, Rebecca's date of birth listed as 10 May 1873.

Did she marry Thomas Thomas in 1892? If so, your best bet would be to buy the marriage certificate as that should give the name of her father (so long as she knew his name). Vol 11a, p784
