William John Thomas & Esther Ann Hopkins
« on: Saturday 02 October 10 14:38 BST (UK) »
The pair mentioned above were married in 1907 and lived at Brynllwyn, Llwynhendy.
They had two children John Glyn Myrddin Thomas b 1909 and Islwyn Thomas b 1911.

I would be grateful if someone can help me with their death dates. They are buried at Tabernacle Chapel, Llwynhendy, WJ had predeseased Esther. I know that Esther died on the 1/9/? as the newspaper clipping from the family archive has been kept, but unfortunately the year was not recorded.


Hope someone can help.

Can we have their respective birthyears please - there are 11 Esther A Thomas deaths in Carmarthen so we need to be able to narrow the search

There are an awful lot more William J Thomas deaths

Hi Carolew,

Esther Ann was born in 1882 at Llanelli and William John was born 1881 Llanelli.

Hope this helps.

The only one that's coming up for Esther is this one

Esther Thomas born 25 Jan 1883 died 1969  Carmarthen  which does not fit with her birthyear

Births September qtr 1881     
Esther Ann Hopkins    Llanelly  11a 723

I wonder if she re-married after William died

Are you sure they died in Carmarthen as there is no William John Thomas death with a birthyear 1878-1882

There is a William b 20.7.1881 who died 1974 Llanelly

Hi Carolew,

Esther Ann Hopkins, did not re marry. William John Thomas was born in the Llanelly area his father was Thomas Thomas. I wonder did he drop the John. According to the newspaper clipping he had predeceased Esther and both are buried at Tabernacle Chapel, Llwynhendy, Llanelli.

If I search Esther A Thomas deaths without a birthyear and only search Llanelly reg district 

Esther A Thomas aged 83 September qtr 1964  Llanelly  8a  260

However - there are far too many William J Thomas deaths in Llanelly to do the same
