Harriet Pugh, Newmarch St, Brecknock
« on: Thursday 02 November 17 20:44 GMT (UK) »
Hi, wondering if anyone can help with this. Iím looking for more (any) info on Harriet Pugh, living in Newmarch St, Brecknock in 1892, listed as Ďauntí when registering a babyís death.

Frederick Joseph Leigh was the 8th and last child born to Walter Robert Leigh and Mary Ann(e) Thomas - there are a number of other posts on here about Walter and Mary Ann but Iím hoping this may give me some more info on Mary Ann.

Mary Ann Thomas and Walter Robert Leigh were married in Brecon in 1876, Mary Annís father being named as John Thomas, deceased, coachman. I have a possible birth for Mary Ann, on 28 April 1856 at Three Cocks Rd, father John Thomas, ostler, mother Maria, formerly Evans, and a matching baptism at St Maryís Brecon, on 16 May 1856. But I canít find anything else for Mary Ann, nor a marriage for John Thomas and Maria Evans, nor any other children, or deaths. So nothing to 100% confirm this is her family and i thought iíd come to a dead end.

But, iíve taken advantage of the GRO offer of £6 pdf certs and bought a number of baby death certs. Most have just been interesting (and sad) to add details to the child, but this one, listing Harriet as aunt, got me excited 😀 Walter was born in Southwark, brought up in Kent, both parents died when he was young, his 3 siblings were in Australia and Hampshire, and he ended up in Brecon with the army, so itís unlikely that Harriet is related to him. But i canít find anything on her ☹️ So wondering if anyone can help.....

Harriet registered both the birth and death of Frederick (Walter had died), and was present at both the birth and death (at 5 days).

Many thanks for reading 😀
