Births Dec 1912 JONES Moelwyn H - Pontypridd 11a 1036 mmn HUGHES

Death 3914/1976 JONES MOELWYN HUGHES - DAVID - JANE * 9 Feb

Looking for marriage of parents and census and arrival.

Thanks,

Dave
 
Dec 1909 Pontypridd 11a 959

David Jones married either Mary Elizabeth Barry or Jane Hughes.

Without knowing when either David or Jane were born it is impossible to pick them out of all the David and Jane Jones in the Pontypridd area in 1911 - just too many
 
Thanks Emeltee.

That's a start. I'll see what I can find now.

David was a farmer but that may not help.

About 80% of those in Rhondda valley were coal miners.

Still checking 1911 census.

David was listed as a farmer in 1942 marriage. Wife was listed as Ellen deceased. But Jane here.

JONES Moelwyn Hughes Death notice 09FEB1976 Death late of Sefton SMH 14FEB1976

That is on the SMH Archive site 1954 - 1995 but I can't read the images. Alternative is to get it on film at State Library.
 
Yes.

Catherine Ellen Jones Daughter Female 0 Cilfynydd, Glamorganshire

Is the closest yet to being the right family.

I can't find a tree. I hope the death notice has something to help.

Pleased most of my ancestors are from England, a few in Europe.

Thanks Geoff.

I'm now looking for Catherine in NSW.

No marriage in NSW 1930 - 1950 for a Catherine E or Catherine Ellen. Closest is Catherine Eileeen.

Dave
 
Oh! Would this suggest that Moelwyn and/or family were in NZ first?
