aber house Nantymoel .( Llandyfodwg)
« on: Friday 05 January 18 17:12 GMT (UK) »
Hello . I am trying to find out who would have been in Aber House  in 1878-1879 According to my great grandfathers birth certificate   his mother was a domestic servant there  . I have found  records of  a Morgan family . Children listed as being born there   but cannot find it on the 1881 census 
Thomas Stubbs Morgan
Born 14th Dec 1880 Aber House . Nantymoel Wales
Died 15th Aug 1968 cowra , Australia

Sarah Jane Morgan
Born 1st March 1882 Aber House Nantymoel.
Died 1939 N.S. W. Australia

Alice Elizabeth Morgan
Born23rd May 1884 Aber House Nantymoel Wales
Died 20h July 1955 Australia
 I also found an obituary for a David  Jones   who died there in 1880.
I have  had information that Aber House was a Colliery Managers house  .so it would have different occupants  as the managers changed 
My great grandfather's mother was Elizabeth Thomas  (unmarried  when he was born )In 1881 she was with her parents in coity .

I found a family living at Aber Houses, Llandyfodog, Bridgend, Glamorganshire, Wales

However looking at the original pages I found that Aber Houses covered from halfway down page 28 to first line of Page 33.

Registration district   Bridgend
Archive reference   RG11
Piece number   5328
Folio   18
Page   31

The above relates to the Jones family.  Most of the heads of households were coal miners.

I can't seem to find an Aber House for Llandyfodog itself.

Not quite what you were looking for perhaps.

Currently there is the following on Google maps

Aber House
Aber Rd
Ogmore Vale
Bridgend

My great grandfather's mother was Elizabeth Thomas  (unmarried  when he was born )In 1881 she was with her parents in coity .

Just wondering why her sons name is Thomas Stubbs Morgan if she was unmarried when he was born  ???

Was he registered as Morgan or Thomas when he was born and are Sarah and Alice also Thomas or Morgan?

The Aber houses was a street of houses built for the colliery workers and their families .
As far as I know Elizabeth Thomas  isn't related to the Morgan family  but may have been employed  by them as  according to my great grandfathers  birth certificate  she was a domestic servant  there when he was born in1879. Servants are listed on the  census  but the next census is 1881 and  I cannot find Aber House on there,  or on the 1871 census . Elizabeth was  a Thomas before marriage  and  did marry  a George Thomas  in 1883.
 My great grandfather s birth certificate gives his fathers name as Alfred John Huxtable  but he  was Baptised as Alfred John Thomas  the name he always used
