There are newspaper articles about sales at Oakley Mill of the contents, stock, produce &c but no mention of selling the premises or land.

The earliest sale I could see was 1814. A later sale was Edward Riley "declining the Dairy business"

This snippet is from the Staffordshire Advertiser, 16 Apr 1859

"At Oakley Mills near Market Drayton on Saturday April 23rd, 1959
W D Green will sell by auction the stock of promising calving heifers, barren and feeding cows and heifers, ram and yearling sheep, draught horses and their gears, valuable brood mare, husbandry implements, &c, &c, &c, the property of Mr Ryley who is giving up the farm. Sale to begin at 12 o'clock."

The Barmouth and County Advertiser, 28 Sep 1905, reported that Evan was debarred from competing for the 1st prize under Company rules. But he took 2nd in 1904 and 1905. The article concludes -

"Great credit is due to Evans, whose horse is a picture of health and care to be looked at on the street. The awarding of such prizes is the best possible encouragement to good and kind treatment of animals."


2 snippets from the Barmouth & County Advertiser

31 July 1902
"SUCCESS - The first prize - 2 - offered by the Cambrian Railways Co. for the best kept horse, harness and stable, was awarded to Carter Evan Evans, Barmouth for 1901-02" 

5 Nov 1903
"RECOGNITION - the premium of 2 offered by the Cambrian Railways Company to men in charge of the Company's horses and stables has been awarded to Mr Evan Evans, Bronaber Terrace, who is in charge of the Company's horses and stables at Barmouth. Mr Evans won the premium last year."

ADDED - took 2nd prize in 1904.

If you check the article at #*1 about Cefn Cribbwr Iron Works you will see reference to Cefn Cwsc Iron Works

Check it out on Welsh newspapers eg

Where he did work can only be speculation.
