Name:John Lewis
Comments:I have just found your family history site thanks to a friend and found it very interesting, putting your personal history into the wider context of UK and world events helps make it more readable. I just wish I had the sort of background info about my family that you clearly have. I do not think there is anyway we can connect although I have traced my family back to another John Lewis who was baptised about 1768 at St. Augustine in Rumney. I cannot get any further back than this at present as the parish registers are not available for research, having been held in the parish until very recently and now at Gwent RO.

Name:Don Yorath
From:NSW, Australia
Comments:Dale, Most impressed with your site and your presentation of Welsh history. Thank you. My YORATH ancestors were miners and farmers in various parts of Glamorgan. (Several emigrated to Australia where they farmed and even became vignerons. Unfortunately, they sold out long before Australian wine became the success story it is today!) One, Gwilym Idris Yorath, born c. 1878 at Llanwonno, married Jennet LEYSHON at Bridgend, so perhaps we have a connection. I also have several LEWISes in the family, but think I would have to rely on you to identify any connection with a YORATH. Best regards.

Name:Ray Lewis
From:Hazelmere, Western Australia
Comments:It's nice to see some familiar places, Talywain and Trevethin. My granddad was Hector Vernon Lewis who was born somewhere about 1880 in or around Talywain. He is buried in Trevethin, St Cadoc's, I think, having died in 1916. I don't know if there is a connection but will have another look at the family tree just in case. Regards

Name:Ira Lewis
Comments:Hi Dale, I really like your page!!! Thanks for the hard work! We also did a Lewis Geneology and found that the "w" in Le"w"is use to be a "v" and before that the "v" use to be a "u" making it spelled Leuites, plural for Leui, or Levi as spelled in modern day. Biblical for the Levites!!! Check it out in a 1914 Century Dictionary. Thanks and have a nice day! Ira

Comments:Have just spent an incredible hour running through your pages. Absolutely fascinating, and a credit to you, and to Mr Smith also. The COLES family bring me to Blaina with the birth of William Frank COLES on May 5th 1853. Many congratulations on your site, and I do hope you are able atsome point to 'prove' a connection to those early Lewis people. Best wishes Glenda

Comments:When Rowland Thomas LEWIS and my grandad, Donald PARRY, emigrated to Canada in 1924, there was supposedly a promoter of fights on board the ship. He was going to be travelling around (not sure if that would be Canada or the USA) setting up bouts where his band of men challenged the locals etc. He offered Donald a job (which he couldn't take because he was committed to an agricultural scheme), but Donald probably had experience of fighting in this country in order to be that good. (Yet another 'family story' that I'd love to find some evidence for!! The passenger list for the journey didn't show up anyone obvious.) While you're all on the subject of LEWIS, can I ask if anyone has further details of the following? I don't know whether he's a relative of mine or not - He emigrated to Canada in 1924, along with my grandfather Donald PARRY. The family story was that Donald emigrated with a relative but I haven't found the link (if there is one) yet. He's Rowland Thomas LEWIS, b 11 January 1903, at Victoria Cottage, Llangattock Lingoed, MON. His father was a Charles LEWIS, general labourer, his mother a Margaret Jane LEWIS (formerly LEWIS). In 1924, when Rowland emigrated, the family were living at New House, Ewyas Harold, HEF. Donald PARRY returned to England about 1926, but I think Rowland stayed in Canada.

Comments:This is what I have so far: Ann Price England Lewis is my great grandmother's sister. William Price died prior to 1854 when Jane Williams Price took her children and moved to Eckhart Mines, Maryland. Ann's first husband had been Moses England, who also died prior to 1854. Ann brought two children with her by her first marriage. Jane Price was born in Blaenavon, Monmouthshire, Wales - says so on her tombstone. And Jane Williams Price is actually buried in Percey Cemetery in Frostburg, MD, but her marker is in Frostburg Memorial Park, next to her Daughter Sarah Price Dando's marker. Sarah Price was also born in Blaenavon. ----and--- Lewis, William (second husband of Ann Lewis) b. December 14, 1822 d. May 24, 1891 a 68 (headstone) Obit William Lewis died at his home in Eckhart Sunday, about 70 years (FMJ 5-30-1891 Mr. Lewis was born in Blaenavon, Monmoutthshire, South Wales. ------AND----------------------- WILLIAM LEWIS was born in 1822. They had the following children: Edward, William and Abraham, Annie, John Lewis b. 1853, Mary b. 1856, Elizabeth b. 1858, Rebecca Jane b 1859 (she married a MILLER), and Sarah Ann. ANN PRICE had a brother, EDWARD PRICE who married ANN LEWIS daughter of JOHN LEWIS who was born in Jan 1840 in Wales. This John Lewis is the same as my JOHN R. LEWIS. Can anyone find any birth records for this ANN PRICE or this WILLIAM LEWIS? ------AND----- I am looking for anything for the John F. Lewis line. John came over here from Wales (Port New Port, Wales) on the ship Barque Tiberias on September 11, 1838. This ported in Baltimore, Maryland. I am trying to find his parent's and their parent's too and so forth. John F. was born on October 31, 1802 and died of November 7, 1885. He was a founder. His wife's name is Ann (I don't have a last name, but that would sure help alot) she was born in Merthyr-Tidfil in 1801 and died in the US in 1868. They had four daughters before moving to the US. Ann b. 1834, Elizabeth b. 1831 or 1829, Harriet b. 1830, Margaret b. June 13, 1822, died October 21, 1888 They had three other children after arriving in the US. Ann Lewis, John's wife was pregnant aboard the ship because she had a daughter (Mary b. October 25, 1838) about a month after or before arriving in the US.

Name:Jane Leigh
From:Gloucestershire, UK
Comments:Dear Dale I've just been looking at your web-site after reading your mail on the BlaenauGwent mailing list. Very impressive - I recognise a lot of work must have gone into that! I have no family connection but I wondered if you had any names for the miners pictured on the Six Bells picture. My dad's family, the Leighs, were in coal mining around the time - my grandfather went on to be mine agent for several of the Abertillery mines - and may well have been involved. I have a copy of the picture in the book Old Abertillery in Photographs. Best wishes Jane

Name:John Lewis
Comments:I am attempting to trace my ancestors and looked at your pages for that purpose. There is no connection, but I have an ancestor whose second husband was a John Lewis from Mynydd Islwyn. I though the info might be of some use. On 27.9.1845, John Lewis, born c1821, at Mynydd Islwyn, marr. Elizabeth Reece (widow) nee William, born c1810, at Llandeilo Fawr, at Merthyr Tydfil Par. Church. They can be found on the 1851 and 1861 Census Returns for Merthyr Tydfil. She had children by both husbands and I am related to one of her first brood. Hope this may be of some use. If not nothing lost.
