I think that would be the one in Merthyr.

Thanks so much. Iíve not checked army records though I did find something about a pension from the army.

Hi Shaun,

Where did you find that the maiden name was Powell? He might have been registered in Pontypridd.

Thanks,

United States of America / Winifred Jones, family from Wales - where was she born?
« on: Monday 14 October 19 11:50 BST (UK)  »
My 2nd Great Grandfather Griffith Jones was born in Merthyr Tydfil, Wales. My Great-Grandfather Taliesin Jones was born in Treharris, even though for years we thought he was born in America.

His sister however, on the 1911 census from Wales is stated as being born in America. Her name was Winifred Jones.

We have no idea who Taliesin and Winifred's mother was, so I have (only now knowing that Taliesin was born in Wales and not America) ordered a birth certificate for him.

However, questions that are left unanswered. We know they were in America, possibly around 1890 -1895, not sure of exact years. I would like to know:

When did they depart for the States?
Where did they live?
Where was Winifred born?
When did they return to Wales?

Hopefully I can get a birth certificate for Taliesin and find the answer to who his mother is (not Elizabeth Jones who Griffith married as a second wife). Apparently we have American relatives, but most of the older generations have died so we have no idea who they are?

Griffith Jones did return to America in the 1900's, but there was no address and we don't know who he was visiting.

Thanks in advance,

Jacqueline  :)

Oh wow, thatís very interesting. My cousin was told by her mother that Avarina was the result of a liaison with a wealthy landowner. The father is not noted on the birth certificate. My cousin has looked into this and found that the local gentry were the Richards family.

Iím not sure how I can actually find more information on this though.

Hi Tanya,

Thatís absolutely fine! I am on ancestry.com if you want to look on there. I have more info. I am also a descendant of Mary Ann, I am Edithís granddaughter. Is Michael the son of a Tydfil by any chance?

Hi,

With regards to her address, it just says Wainfawr, Vainor Lower. Her mother was Mary James and her parents were Avarina and John Janes.

Unfortunately I donít have an address of Maryís place of work but I have been told that she was a result of a liaison with a wealthy landowner.  My cousin has noted that the gentry in the area of Llanbardan Fawr at that time weíre a family called Richards, but weíve no idea if there is a connection there or not.

Thanks,

Jacqueline

Hi ,

Thatís great stuff. It definitely sounds like her. Her husband David Warrington did go to Crewe and married again. He died in 1938 I believe.

I am hoping to head down to Aberystwyth on Monday to speak to somebody. Thanks for your input.

Jacqueline
