Not really sure that this is relevant or of interest, but it looks like Maud Addis marries the lodger, William Bubb in 1896.

I realise that this is turning a bit into one of our Scavenger Hunts from years ago where we find a whole load peripheral info to try to solve a problem, but I have just come across the baptisms of some children related to this.

All at St Marks, Newport:
May 6th 1897 - William Alfred Bubb, son of William Charles and Maud Elizabeth Bubb, Greengrocer, 27 Redland Street
May 13th 1897 - Beatrice Day, daughter of Henry and Emily Day, Labourer, 33 Hoskins Street
May 20th 1897 - William Henry Day, son of Henry and Emily Day, Labourer, 33 Hoskins Street

that's interesting given that Elizabeth was enumerated as a widow in 1881  & son Harry was Griffiths not Addis. I'd found a possible burial for James Addis as well.   ::)

1851 for Martha

https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:SGTG-S8Q

The James Addis who dies in September 1880 was a 34 yr old colliery carpenter who died in a workplace accident in the Glyn Pits. Inquest was in Pontypool

I'm thinking that the James Addis who died was the husband of Elizabeth.
Marriage ref
Elizabeth Addis march qtr 1883 Newport 11a pg 278 with 2 Johns on the same page, John King & John Lancelot Rowe

1901 census, an interesting mix of Rowe, Griffiths, Bubb & Addis. Just along Redland Street from the Day family.
https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903/1:1:X9YS-D8V

John L Rowe is the same age, has the same place of birth as the John Addis from 1891 census. 1871 census in Newport has a John L Rowe of the same age who was a blacksmith.

Dear Spidermonkey & Osprey,

Crikey! That's a revelation. I need some time to get my head around all that. Thanks for your help.
