Very difficult, heddwch.   I looked at his baptism record last week which was how I knew of the abode. No mother named.

I have a similar record in Flintshire. This time it was my ancestor who was named as the father and written in was 'by his mother's maid' !! I was very angry when I saw it. Not even mentioning the poor girl's name  :(



It  looks like Ben ....Leo

I'm more confident with the Ben than the Leo.  Add -The L in  Lutsk is running over part of Ben

On Mary's death cert of 1938, her age is given as 86. This suggests a birth of 1851-52.


Very distinctive eyebrows. Like Carol, I would say it's very likely.

Where were they specifically, please?  Wouldn't glass blowing need really good coal?  (We visited the glassblowing centre last year, it was really impressive.)


I work with glass and visit the National Glass Centre in Sunderland regularly. Google has quite a lot on the history of glass making in Sunderland. For example:

Added - from the above


The first stained glass to be produced in Britain was made in Sunderland by French craftsmen imported from Gaul in AD674. Benedict Biscop, Abbot of the new monastery at Wearmouth, invited them to make the windows for St Peter's Church.

Isabella's death cert (as Young) of 3rd Sept 1902 has her as the Widow of William Young, weaver. John Young, Son, was the informant.

Her parents are recorded as Alexander Birrell, mason and Mary, MS Brown.

This fits with Josey's census info.

I've checked Welsh newspapers online but nothing obvious.  They start in 1804 though. 


Add -not in the Welsh Wills  either  :-\
