Old but New Subject (Watkins)
« on: Sunday 24 May 15 02:31 BST (UK) »
Is Lyndon still around?   He was my contact for the Watkins family (mostly Printers) in Swansea, Cardiff and Bristol.
We have "lost" an ancestor! John Watkins was born in December 1852. Married Margaret Hopkin(s) in 1869. Nine Watkins children: Thomas; Walter John; David Rhys; Howel James; Samuel; Mary; Lewis; Elizabeth and Howel. (The first Howel and Samuel died in 1883).
John was a widower by the time of the 1891 Census and was living with six of his children, in the home of his Mother-in-Law, Elizabeth (Jones) Hopkins and her son and daughter. Then we "lose" him (and several other family members) when we look at the 1901 Census. He reappears in 1911 as a Boarder in the home of Robert and Emma Turner - don't think they are related.
Can anyone find him in 1901 and see where he was and what he was doing?
Thanks.   Janice
