Request for help LEE family
« on: Monday 12 February 18 12:01 GMT (UK) »
Hi all

I'm wondering if anyone can help as I've run into a block which I can't overcome. This is what I know:

Spencer Jones (my Gt GF) married Mary Ann Lee registered in Bedwelty June Qtr 1889. I believe the Lee connection is correct, reinforced by 1891 census.

1891(2 share house 8 Globe Pit Row)

Hd Michael Lee 40, Wid, Millright in Forge, b. Tredegar
Son William, 19, unmarried, coal miner, b.Tredegar
Son John Lee, 13, b. Blaina
Dau Margaret Lee, 10, b. Blaina

and

Hd Spencer Jones, 24, Tinworker, b. Pontypool
Wife Mary Ann Jones, 24, b. Blaina
Dau Margaret Ann Jones, 1, b. Blaina

I suspect that Mary Anne Jones, was born Mary Ann Lee and possibly Michael Lee above is her brother (conjecture I know).

I can't get anymore on the Lee family going back which ties in with the above.  Can any kind person give me a hand.

Many thanks

David

I think you will need to get a copy of the marriage cert, to find out the name and occupation of her father for sure.  Otherwise anything you look at or put together will only be guesswork!
Edmonds/Edmunds - mainly Sussex
DeBoo - London
Green - Suffolk
Parker - Sussex
Kemp - Essex
Farrington - Essex
Boniface - West Sussex

Excuse my ignorance but is there an image to view or a transcript with more information, I'm an amateur in comparison to your record  :)

Hi
The new Gro index does indeed give Mary Ann's maiden name as Lee.

Spencer Jones birth was registered Mar 1867 Pontypool s of Edward and Sarah Jones nee Crook.
Actually born 30 Dec 1866.

That  marriage 30 June 1889 Ht LLanfair
Spencer is 22 tin mill man s of Edward a tin mill man
Mary 19 d of Michael Lee labourer
 Both bridge and groom of Nantyglo
wit Joseph and Miriam Sainsbury

Type in Spencer Jones marriage 1889 an it brings up  2 results click on the top one Monmouth marriages camera icon on the results page.

Mary is 19 in June 1889 so probably registered Sep 1869 Bedwellty ,mother Fitzgerald.

The Lees in Bedwalty seem to be
1881 census 42 Union st
Catherine Lee widow 45 Ireland
Patrick 16 son labourer Ireland
Morris 14 labourer  Ireland
Mary 12 scholar Tredegar
Michael 10 Tredeger

1871 7 Red Lion Square
Lawrence Lee 37 lab in ironworks Ireland
Catherine 34 Ireland
Patrick 6 scholar Dowlais Glamorgan
Morrisey 4
Mary 2 Tredeger.

Lawrence died Dec 1880 Bedwelty age 45.

Also 1871 45 Bridge St
Michael Lee 27 boot maker Ireland
Sarah 31 bootbinder Tredeger
Mary E(lizabeth) 7 daughter
Lida 6
Basheera 4
Sarah 2

Sarah senior started life as Miss Owen/Owens.

1881 Cross St
Michael Lee 47 shoemaker Waterford
Sarah 41 Tredeger
Mary E 18
Lidia 16
Catherine 14
Sarah 12
Alice 10
Thomas Owens 66 widower father in law  born Haverfordwest

None of which matches that 1891 census you have which must be them.
There is a possible birth entry for Margaret Lee born  Mar 1881 at Newport ,mother Stokes.

Sorry

All very odd - none of Michael Lee's children in 1891 appear to have been registered as Lee, nor is there a birth reg. for Michael Lee himself bc.1851 Tredegar. (By 1901 he is remarried).

Cannot find him and family before 1891.   Change of surname??

Annette

(The Margaret Lee birth 1881 mmn Stokes is not her.   The Lee/Stokes couple are a William and Margaret.)
Scopes (One-Name Study - Worldwide)
Suffolk - Grist, Knights, Bullenthorpe, Watcham
Scotland - Spence, Horne, Cowan, Moffat
London -  Monk

Don't walk behind me, I may not lead.   Don't walk in front of me, I may not follow.   Just walk beside me and be my friend.
