hugh humphrey Evans Pontypool monmouth
« on: Saturday 22 April 06 16:37 BST (UK) »

 I received the birth Certificate for my hubbys grandad yesterday Donald archer Evans, i sort of guessed what his parents name would be as i found a marriage cert for a may meredith and Hugh humphrey evans for 1899 in bedwelty
now the problem i have is i have no information for Hugh Evans except for his occupation, on the birth cert it says he is a Dramatic artiste May registered the birth a month after Donald was born im guessing Hugh was away filming perhaps,  i cannot find Hugh on the census for 1891 or 1901 ( i think may had died by 1901) i believe donald had an older sister but they were both sent to live with different rellies when their mum died i just wanted to know what happened to hugh he may have remarried again in 1904.
ive tried searching for welsh actors but he may have used a different name
the address for them in 1900 was ashgrove cottage, george street, pontypool.

does anyone perhaps know of the actor.

thanking you
kaz

Hi Kaz

Can you fill in a few details please?

You believe the marriage took place in 1899 in Pontypool reg district?

Donald Archer EVANS appears to have been born in Mar q 1900 in Pontypool.

Have you found Donald and the sister (her name?) in 1901?

I can see a servant, May EVANS in George St in 1901, but she is unmarried. When do you think she died?

Curiously there is the birth and death of a Hugh Humphrey EVANS in Llanelli, Carmarthenshire in 1898 - possibly a red herring?

Anything more you can add would be helpful.  It looks as though the marriage cert would be a good investment.

kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

 donald was visiting his grandmother sarah exton ( meredith) in longhope glous in 1901 and was brought up by her and her 2nd hubby
 no one in the family know anything else, im the only one that knows who donalds parents are at the moment as i wanted to find out more info onthe evans side put everything in a folder and give it to my mother in law

i have found about 6 possible death indexes for may evans ranging from jul-sept 1900 to 1902  pontypool, pontypridd, llanelly

i did trawl through the census last night and found the address that is on donalds birth cert in the 1901 census in the hope hugh was still living there after may had died but it was another family

so back to square one lol

Morning Kaz!

Yes, I had another look without success - looks like we wil have to be patient & see what the marriage cert says.

Please let us know!

You can't tie the family you found in 1901 to yours - maybe an uncle or aunt??

Meanwhile, if you can think of anything else we can try, please ask.

kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Not very helpful, is it?

Hmm - who are the witnesses to the marriage?  can you place them?  What is the address for Donald's birth?  I know you have checked it, but I fancy a look too!  ;D

Giving it some more thought...

hiya,

The witness`s are Thomas John Buckley and Sarah Jones, have no idea who they are

The address for Donalds Birth is Ashgrove Cottage, George Street, Pontypool,

in 1901  he is visiting his grandmother (mays Mother) at gloucs she has remarried and is now Sarah Exton instead of meredith,

The wedding Cert doesnt say Mays day, Alfred Meredith is desceased i think he died in 1894, i found  a marriage index for sarah meredith and Archer exton in 1895

I have gone through the census in 1901 for oak street, i did find about 3 Evans but not matching names, unless they were relatives but not knowing who else was in the family, its proving difficult to add siblings and Hughs Mother
