Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

Pretty sure this will be the birth of Martha Powell,
Briton Ferry was in Neath RD :-

MARTHA
POWEL

Birth year 1848 Birth quarter 1

District NEATH
County Glamorganshire
Volume 26
Page 472
Record set England & Wales births 1837-2006

Just an L missing makes all the difference!

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

Looking at the image for the marriage of Evan Powell & Anne Jones 13 Apr 1832, Merthyr Tydfil.
There is no further information. They both made their mark, as did most people on that page. The witnesses signed but are the same for most marriages on the page so not particular to this couple.

Image for marriage of John Harris & Jane Davies March 21 1840 St Cadoxton Church:-
John, copperman, Meol pen y Wern, father John Harris Copperman
Jane, widow, Brin coch, father Evan Williams collier

both full age, John signed, Jane mark
witts William Harris & William Williams

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

Thanks Elaine.

That clears up a few things.

Pob for Evan varies from census to census, Cyfarthfa, Newbridge, Treforest

1861
RG9 Piece 4084 Folio 59 Page 9
Civil Parish or Township: Briton Ferry
County: Glamorgan
Country: Wales
Registration District: Neath
Sub-RD: Neath
ED: 5
No of Schedule:
Address: 5 Vernon Place
POWELL Evan Head Mar M 51 Rollerman In Iron Works Newbridge Glamorganshire
POWELL Ann Wife Mar F 50 Merthyr Glamorganshire
POWELL Rees Son Unm M 22 Baller in Iron Works Treforest Glamorganshire
POWELL Martha Dau F 13 Scholar Briton Ferry Glamorganshire
POWELL Mary Dau F 10 Scholar Briton Ferry Glamorganshire


I was hoping to see the banns in two parishes - Merthyr for Ann and another for Evan.

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

John Harris born abt 1812 (Neath) Glamorgan in 1841?

I'm not having much luck so far assuming he is living in Glamorgan.

I wonder if witness William Harris is of help. Not John's father so a brother perhaps ?

John's prents are John & Margaret but there are 2 possible John & Margarets in 1841.

Also Evan William(s) & Hannah ( ?).

William William
Christening Date 2 Jan 1819 CADOXTON JUXTA NEATH, GLAMORGAN
Evan William & Hannah

Re: John HARRIS born Skewen

re post#15,
1851, Anna Davies is born Cadoxton on image
bapt at Cadoxton 29 May 1837 :- Hannah Davies d.o. David & Jane, collier

re post #16,
1841 Evan Williams is a collier on image (not surprising if he has given it up by 1851 at the age of 55)
