Hello, I'm looking for any information on my 2x Great Grandfather Thomas Henry Mayne.
(1870-1912) Going back though my records, I realized I have made a mistake with Thomas's death year. It looks like he died in 1912 at the age of 42

I know he was born in a workhouse in Somerset but I have no record of his parents or siblings. He  moved to Wales when he was 15 and worked as a coal miner in Mountain Ash, Wales. In 1895, he married my 2x great grandmother, Mary Jane Cousins (1871-1961). They had 5 children. 2 died as children but the other 3 lived. Apart from my great grandad, I have very limited info on the family after 1911.

Any information about the Mayne family or any hints or tips to help me break this very confusing wall in my tree would be very helpful.

Thanks
Mayne - Somerset / Wales / Gloucester
Bixley - Surrey
Boyce - Surrey
Culverhouse - Wales
Palmer
Cordell
Bridges - Portsmouth / Canada
Cousins - Wales

Welcome to RootsChat! ;D

First thing to do would be to get a copy of his Birth Certificate.
Birth: March qtr 1869
Clutton Registration District     vol 5c, page 648

Main, Thomas Henry

The Mother's Maiden Name is blank - usually indicating an illegitimate birth.


A PDF copy will cost 7, and can be obtained using the above information from:
www.gro.gov.uk/gro/content/certificates
Garrad (Suffolk, Essex, Somerset), Crocker (Somerset), Vanstone (Devon, Jersey), Sims (Wiltshire), Bridger (Kent)

Welcome from me as well  :)

When you have the birth cert I also noticed that there are two more Main births in the Clutton Reg District on the GRO Birth Index with no mother's maiden name listed

AGNES    MAIN    
GRO Ref 1867  June Qter CLUTTON  Volume 05C  Page 652
ELLEN   MAIN      
GRO Ref 1865  Sept Qter CLUTTON  Volume 05C  Page 633

And just in case this is relevant I think these girls were living with their grandparents in 1871 in Publow Somerset as below. (I see your Thomas Henry lists his birthplace as Publow in the census) and there is a baptism on 8 Sep 1867 Publow of an Agnes Mayne with mother Ann Mayne -Single Woman

James Main 58   Somerset
Ann   Main   46   Publow, Somerset
Ellen   Main   Granddaughter   5   Publow,Somerset
Agnes Main   Granddaughter   3   1868  Publow, Somerset
