Note on Husband: Evan JONES - shared note

"Evan son of Edward and Eleanor Jones, Manafon llan. Labourer [Baptized] May 20 1826"

 

( It is possible / probable that this is the correct Evan. If he was born between 8th April and 19th May 1826, this would agree with the age he gave in 1851 - 1881 censuses)

 

In his letter, Archie Roberts writes to his niece, Gwyneth:

 

"Mary would be your Great-Grandmother, and married the son of the Rector of Manafon about 1831, though I have no exact dates."

 

There seems to be some confusion here, as Evan's father is described as a labourer on his marriage certificate - although he may, I suppose, have been a non-conformist minister - in Wales at this time they were often both.

 

1851 Census:

[HO107/2499/233/3]

William, Jane and their daughters Jane, Catherine, Elizabeth, with Mary and Evan Jones, and their Grandaughter Mary (age 11 months) were all at the Mill Dolanog, along with five servants.

 

1861 Census:

[RG9/4260/40/2]

Dolanog Mill Evan and Mary with their children William Margaret and Anne Jones, and his Mother in Law Jane Evans, and her daughters Catherine and Elizabeth Evans.

 

1871 Census:

[RG10/5628/?/2]

Dolanog Mill Evan and Mary, their children William and Annie, Mary's mother and (probably) Mary's sister, Elizabeth Evans, who was visiting.

 

1881 Census:

[RG11/5496/57/9]

Dolanog Mill Evan and Mary, with their son William.

Note on Wife: Mary EVANS (1) - shared note

Register: Salem or Dolanog Calvinistic Methodist Chapel, founded 1826

[RG4/3909/100] Microfilm at Family Records Centre:

 

Mary / William and Jane Evans / Jane Owens spinster / Farmer/ Ty Newydd / Father's Parish - Llangynuw / Mother's Parish - Llangynuw / Child Born - Dec 21 1830 in Llangynuw Parish / Baptised Feb 1st 1831 at Salem Chapel by Evan Griffiths Baptised by Evan Griffiths.

 

1861 Census:

[RG9/4260/40/2]

Mary now living at the Mill with her mother, her sisters, Catherine and Elizabeth; her husband, Evan Jones, and her children, William, Margaret and Annie.

 

In 1891, Mary, now Widowed, was at the Mill, Dolanog, with son William, who had taken over as Miller.

[RG12/4599/131]

 

She is described in "Hanes Methodistaeth Trefaldwyn Isaf" as "the late Mrs Jones Dolanog Mill" and therefore must have died before the book's publication in 1914.

BIRTHS, MARRIAGES, AND DEATHS.

 

DEATHS.

 

JONES.- January 9th at Dolanog Mills, Llanfair Caereinion, Mary, widow of Evan Jones, aged 74 years.

Note on Wife: Mary EVANS (3)

In a Newspaper (Baner Ac Amserai Cymru) dated 24th July 1895 a letter from an O. Foulkes states that he visited Racine, Wisconsin visiting friends who had emigrated there from Wales. Among the people he visited, he mentions a Mrs Gittins and a Mrs Rowlands "two sisters of Mrs Jones, of the Mill Dolanog".

 

The only sisters of Mary Jones (nee Evans) who may have married would have been Margaret (b. 1832); Ann (born 1834) and Catherine (b. 1843). Sister Jane (b. 1840) married Thomas Owen, and the youngest sister Elizabeth (b 1848) dies unmarried.

 

Thus far (May 2015) I have not found any Evans / Rowlands / Gittins marriages that occured in any Powis Church that fit any of these sisters. It is possible they married outside the county or indeed in America - or perhaps married in a Non Conformist Chapel for which I haven't yet found a record.

 

O. Foulks goers on to mention in his / her letter that they have bad news concerning Mr and Mrs Rowland's daughter who appears to have died recently.

 

My Great Uncle Archie Roberts mentioned in a letter the following:

 

"There is a very close connection with the Rowlands family who lived at Ty Newydd, which was on the way to Heniarth, but was a complete ruin in 1908. At that time Jane Rowlands came over from USA and I took her to see their old home. Another branch of the Rowlands farmed near Shifnal. We got to know the son, David, quite well. He emigrated to Canada to a farm, but was drowned in one of the sudden floods from the Rockies."

Text From Source: GRAND BANQUET TO THE TENANTRY AT WYNNSTAY.
The gathering of over seven hundred tenants, on the invitation of their landlord, Sir Watkin William Wynn, Baronet, M.P., at Wynnstay, yesterday, was such as is seldom seen.
It stamped indelibly on the mind of the observer the fact that the feeling between Sir Watkin and his tenants is of no ordinary nature; but that it is undeniable in its sincerity and affectionate respect. Here was a compact mass of 700 tenants,. who had travelled that morning many weary miles to demonstrate their loyalty to the house of Wynnstay; and amongst those whose circumstances prevented their accepting the invitation their must have been many hearts that were sorrowing because of their inability to join their fellow tenants, and to swell the assembly that, with unalloyed enthusiasm, had met to greet a landlord whose hospitality is as unpretentious as it is unbounded, whose kind heartedness and generosity has ramifications with which few are wholly acquainted, whose bearing to those by whom he is regarded as chief is genial and unaffectedly familiar without lacking dignity; who is, in fact, the type of a thorough country nobleman, attached to his estate and those who live upon it, and beloved by all. When Sir Watkin's health recently gave way, the feeling of anxiety that possessed every class of society in this part of Wales was somewhat similar to that which was felt by the whole country when the heir-apparent to the throne was a short time since stricken down with fever. And the thankfulness that was expressed at the recovery of the Prince in Wales, was, though in a more limited area as heartfelt as that which characterised the nation when the Prince of Wales and his noble mother publicly returned to the Almiighty their gratitude for the mercies that had been vouchsafed. The ardent unanimity with which every section of society presented congratulatory addresses to Sir Watkin is still fresh in the memories of all, and we believe it was appreciated to the fullest extent by the hon. baronet. That such really was the case, was amply proved by the gathering of yesterday, when the majority of his tenants sat down to a splendid repast, that had been provided for them in Wynnstay park. The occasion was rendered additionally interesting by the knowledge that Sir Watkin is expected to be absent from his seat for some considerable time, as he is to sail for a six month's cruise in the Mediterranean in November; and consequently an opportunity was afforded of wishing Sir Watkin, his lady, and their family, a most hearty bon voyage.

Text From Source: DOLANOG SUDDEN DEATH.
On Monday, December 3, an inquest was held at the Vicarage, Dolanog, before W. A. Pughe, Esq., coroner, and a jury, of whom Mr. Rees Davies, Dolwar Hall, was foreman, on the body of Catherine Ann Rowlands, 67 years of age.
Richard Jones said he was the vicar of Dolanog parish. He identified the body as that of the deceased, who had resided with him for the last seven veeks. About ten o'clock on Saturday night, after a supper of oatmeal porridge, deceased went to her bed- room, but soon alarmed the family by cries of Oh Oh He ran into the room, and gave her some brandy and water, but without effect. He then ran to a neighbour, Evan Jones, a miller, who sent his servant for Dr. Evans, of Llanfair, who arrived about three o'clock. Deceased had then been dead about four hours. She was subject to rheumatism, but had not been attended by any doctor during her stay there.
Ann Jones said she was a servant in the employment of last witness. About ten o'clock on Saturday night, hearing a scream, she ran into the room of deceased, and found her just falling down. She took hold of her, put her on the bed, and called her master. She spoke a few words before she died.
Mary Jones said she was the wife of Evan Jones, of The Mill, Dolanog. About ten o'clock on Saturday Mr. Jones came to her house, and asked her to go to the Vicarage, and said that Mrs Rowlands will. When she (witness) reached the Vicarage deceased was nearly dead. She felt her pulse, but she appeared lifeless. The jury returned a verdict of Died by the visitation of God."

Hanai o deuly oedd yn dal cyssylltiad a Methodistiaeth er sefydliad Methodistiaeth yn y fro.
Yr oedd o duedd garedig a chymdeithasol, a theimlir hir chwithdod ar ei hol.
Gadawodd fab a dwy ferch, a pherthynasau eraill, a llu o gyfeillion, i alaru ar ei hol.

For many years she spent much of her time in London and in Birmingham with the Chamberlain families and others.
On her retirement from service she came to reside with her family at Dolanog Mill, from which she married Mr John Edwards. She is survived by one sister and a number of nephews and a niece.
The funeral took place on Monday at Llanfihangel burial ground.
The service at the house and graveside were taken by the Rev. D. Arthur Morgan, Meifod, assisted by Canon Roberts, R.D.
