red mail Duckhams, Hadens, Relfs - Trevethin
My GGG grandfather William Duckham lived with Harriet (possible nee Shakespeare) in Trosnant, Trevethin in 1851. William Duckham was born in Tiverton, Devon but I have struggled to firmly establish his parentage. William's daughter Ellen, married Benjamin Haden around 1869 and the Hadens lived in Mill Road Trevethin for 30+ years. They had a granddaughter (my nana) who married Thomas William Relf, son of Frederick and Frances. I'd love to hear from anyone wiht any connections or information about the families. Thank you, Kerry
Farr twin girls born 04 January 1845
My 4th great grandfather, William Farr (1801-1875) and his wife Mary Edwards Farr (1803-1845) had The Crown in Raglan in 1841 and he had the Full Moon on George Street in Pontypool in 1851. On 4 January 1845 Mary delivered twin daughters, only to die from complications of childbirth on 13 January. The two girls were Harriet (born at 10 p.m.) and Catherine (born at 11:30 p.m.). Both girls appear on the 1851 census. Unfortunately, Catherine died on 7 March 1856 and was buried on the 13th. That is all the information I've been able to find. If you come across anything or have these people in your tree, I'd greatly appreciate your assistance. Feel free to contact me. I've somewhat accounted for all the other children of William and Mary: Edward John (my 3rd great grandfather), Elizabeth, George William, John Meyrick, Thomas, Mary Sophia, Ann(e) and Jane.
Punchion Machine in Pontymoile
My great grandfather (Thomas Charles Farr, b. 28 Oct 1859) had a brother Edward John Farr who died on 19 Nov 1866, at the age of 13. His death certificate says the cause of death was "accident from falling within the wheel of a Punchion Machine". The location of his death was given as Pontymoile Paulcague (not sure of the spelling of the second word). Does anybody know of any source of information on Pontymoile at this time or exactly what a punchion machine actually is? I am guessing it is perhaps something to do with a textile mill and might be associated with a weaving loom/machine. Most of his immediate family emigrated to the U.S. (Nanticoke, Pennsylvania) in the early 1880s and were involved in the coal and railroad industries. Any/All sources or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
