Evan Roberts (Amlwch)
« on: Wednesday 19 April 06 14:58 BST (UK) »
Does anyone have any info on Evan Roberts, a copper miner from Amlwch, born around 1796, living at Pentrefwaun in 1841. I'd particularly like to know when (and to whom) he married and when (c.1815) his son Henry was born; Henry headed south to Merthyr and his granddaughter was my grandmother.
   Cheers, Gareth

Thanks for that. It's interesting he was born at Corwen. The excellent Amlwch website has three miners called Evan Roberts listed: one b.1793, from MER, Corwen, from a list of immigrants to the island; one (also b 1793) in the 1851 Census and one (b.1795) "late copper miner" at Pentragwian (Pentrefwaun, surely?) in 1881. Could they all be the same person, with a mistake somewhere along the line in the year of birth?
The site also has a Henry Roberts baptised at St Eleth on 10 Aug 1816; would the church in those days have baptised someone four years before his parents got married? I'm afraid I don't have the names of any other children.
   Cheers, Gareth
