Note on Husband: Robert Morgan ROBERTS (1) - shared note

Born 11.30am.

 

In 1881 he and Annie had moved to 48 New Street, Shrewsbury, a small cottage by the river, where their daughter, Hilda was born. [

RG11/2654/9/14]

 

By the 1891 Census, the couple and their three children were living just up the roadin a larger house, newly built, at 6 New Street.

[RG12/2113/6/6] where they were still living in 1904.

 

In 1899, Robert describes himself in the local directory as

"Printer, secretary to Shropshire Football Association and League".

Later on they moved to 4 Victoria Street, Shrewsbury, where they remained until their deaths.

This would have been after 1904, when the house is described as "void" in "Wildings Directory of Shrewsbury" of that date. (The previous occupant was a Thomas Jones, who was still there in 1896.).

It would appear that Eric, Eve and their children moved in to number 4, probably after the death of Annie Roberts.

According to Gwyneth Roberts's diary he died at 5.30

 

Will Index:

Robert Morgan Roberts d. 16 May 1943

Admin. Chester 25 June to Robert Eric Roberts Company Clerk

Effects £520 0s 9d

 

Robert, Annie and their daughter, Hilda all share the same grave.

Note on Husband: Robert Morgan ROBERTS (2)

Chris remembers - he had his workshop which took up most of the back yard - had his printing machinery there.

Had an old dog Pete.

Gruff but nice - always pleasant - spent most of his tgime out in his shed.

Hardly ever saw him in the house except to come in nthrough the door to go down to the kitchen

Eric had the bathroom put in where the old coal cellar was.

4 Victoria Street older than the houses in the street - bult about 1830s / 1840s - owned by Mr Jones the farmer.

!860s - other houses built - number 9 built in 1862.

On one of the bedrooms if you held the door in a certain light you could see the words "Mr Jones's Dressing Room".32

Note on Wife: Ann JONES - shared note

Known as "Annie".

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.

 

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

 

Died at 4.30pm.

 

This obituary was taken from a local

 

"Dolanog. The late Mrs. Roberts. - A correspondent writes:

With the death of Mrs R. M. Roberts, of Shrewsbury, at the age of 75,a last link with Dolanog Mill is severed.

Her brother, Mr. W. E. Jones, predeceased her two years ago, and had been a well-known character in the Dolanog area for many years.

Visitors to Dolanog up to some fifteen years ago would remember the family well.

For generations, picnic parties would come from the Llanfair and Meifod districts, and obtaining water or kettles from the Mill, would select a secluded spot near the ford or by the old picturesque waterfall, and enjoy a rest and a meal.

There must be many grown-up families who have recollections of an enjoyable afternoon at Dolanog Mill, with amusing and entertaining chats with Mrs. Jones or her family.

Today, all this has changed, and the old wooded and secluded spots have been swept away to make room for a bridge and a more efficient, but less picturesque, weir and electric power station.

To the older generations, however, memories of the old family and surroundings flit through the minds reminding them of happy and care-free days."

4"Holy Bible" (printed 1620).
Text From Source: presently in the possession of Graham Hoadly.
This information is from a large Welsh Family Bible printed in London by Bonham Norton and John Bill. Printed by the printer who printed for the King. Anno Domini 1620.

There is no evidence to suggest who originally owned the Bible. The earliest reference inscribed within is to
"My father John Lewis [of Pantycrasdy] born August 1726"
Pantycrasdy is a farm near Llanwnog in Mongomeryshire, now Powis. It still exists, although the farmhouse is modern - i.e. not the building John Lewis would have known. The farm presently lies on a minor road that runs parallel to and north of the A470 between Carno and Clatter.
On the inside flyleaf there is the following:
"Thomas Morgan [indistinct - "his hand"?]
this his mi dook"
At the end of Leviticus is the following inscription:
"Leviticus his hand and
Elisaber Griffith her book
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13"
I have no idea who "Elisaber" could have been.
On the back flyleaf there are inscriptions from Thomas Wood and Richard Wood. No idea who they may have been.
The Bible appears to have remained with the Lewises and went from Morgan Lewis into the posession of his daughter Jane who married William Roberts of Newtown.
It went from Jane to her son Robert Morgan Roberts and then to his son Archibald Lewis Roberts.
Archie gave it to his niece Gwyneth, who gave it to her son Graham Hoadly.
Graham is the present owner - 29th July 2003.
The last few pages after Revelation chapter twenty are missing i.e. Chapters twenty to twenty-two inclusive.

With regard to the Wood family and the Morgan family:

Llanwnog Parish Registers have the following baptisms to a Thomas and Mary Wood of Llanwnog:

Mary Wood bap 1 April 1788
Richard Wood bap 1 Oct 1792
Thomas Wood bap 14 Jan 1795

A Thomas Wood married a Mary Jones in Llanwnog on 28 Aug 1786

Could these all be the same family, and is it they who inscribed the Bible?

Also a Thomas Morgan married a Mary Wood [possibly Mary Wood daughter of Thomas and Mary (nee Jones)] in Llanwnog on 17 May 1805

As it seems that the Lewises were writing in the bible as early as 1782, how did it happen that the Wood, Morhan and Griffith inscriptions appeared there as well as the reference to John Savage. Could these families be connected somehow with the Lewises?
