Hi Folks,

Due to a variety of reasons, I only took note that the Roberts Family lived at the above address on the 1881 census. As my paternal grandfather was born at this address on 19 May 1879 to 'Ann Evans'-(No Father listed), I wonder if the lady was still there for the 1881 census. My paternal grandfather is listed at age of 1+ in Blaenllechau with his grandmother and two of her sons in 1881.

Any help would be much appreciated, although I'd be surprised if she was still there.

Diolch yn fawr

Brian

Just the Roberts family in 1881. There are a couple of Ann Evans living on Cardiff Road but I can't see a family sending a daughter a few houses down the road to have her illegitimate baby - she'd more likely be sent some distance away, don't you think.

Thanks emeltee, I couldn't agree more. David Evans (the father that turned up in 1905 for my grandfather's wedding) was living in Blaenllechau in 1871 with parents -Evan and Elizabeth- and sons John & Samuel, that is fact. So the brain says that Ann Evans must have lived near the family and was shunted over the mountain into Aberdare - with the £64million question, why that house of the Roberts family. My only thought has always been that son John whose wife Ellen in 1881 is listed as born Aberaman (near Aberdare) was connected to the Roberts family. So there we still have the brick wall of my Evans clan.

Thanks again.
