« on: Wednesday 14 October 20 00:43 BST (UK) »
Hi there ,
Doing my tree on my grandads side and was just wondering if anybody has come across or got any info on the Watts family that  lived in Newton Nottage wales appx 1860-1900
The Father was a Robert Watts ( my great whatever it is grandad ) he had sons one called David Watts again great whatever it is grandad who went on to have Thomas Watts who moved n lived his days in Porthcawl wales ..... think by all accounts they either had a farm or worked on a farm ..... any info appreciated , Paul ....  think Robert was originally born in Devon about 1823 ......

1871 census Newton Nottage
Robert Watts 46 bn Devon labourer
Ann Watts 31 bn Glamorgan
Children
David 6, Robert 5, William 4, Jane 2, Rachel 3 months.

I think Annís maiden name was Lewis, all the children were registered in Bridgend Registration District with motherís maiden name Lewis.

Morning
Yeah I seen that for Robert , but couldnít for the life of me figure out the second name of the family ( tapp )  ..... also found his birth certificate which only states his mum Jane , so must be along the right lines .... I had a Robert watts pop up that was born in usk Monmouthshire wales about the same time , Iíll need to sit down this evening or at the weekend n spend a couple of hours working it through again .... make sure am on the right line , thanks for your replies though n have a pleasant day , ( Iím at wrk ) Paul

If as someone said they were registered under the motherís maiden name ( Lewis ) does this mean they will be known as David Lewis n not David watts if so it changes everything
