FreeBMD confirms mother's name Jones.

Also possible parents: marriage 4th qtr 1896, Newcastle Emlyn 11b/49 between Philip Purslove and Mary Jones.

1891 census RG12/4550 Folio 5, page 6, finds a Philip Purslove age 16, born Debyshire, and a Mary Jones, age 17, born Pencarreg,Carmarthenshire, both servants at Llanfihangel ar Arth.

Haven't found them yet in 1901.

If you search FreeBMD for Purslove births from 1896 onwards you will find:
Elizabeth, 1897 Newcastle Emlyn:
David John, 1905, Llandeilo Fawr;
Tom, 1908, Llandeolo Fawr:

These places are in Carmarthenshire.

Then search under Pontardawe; you'll find 5 more children between 1912 and 1919, all with mother's name Jones.
