The Family of David and Hannah Davies, Lower Brynaman, Glamorgan, Wales
Compiled by (email@example.com)
Banns of Christchurch, Cwmaman during October 1854 indicate the marriage of David Davies and Hannah Davies, both resident
in that parish.
In the 1861 census the family are listed at Clynboidy Cott, Llanguicke with Hannah (the mother)
as having been born in Llandilo parish. She is given as 31 while David (the father), a coal miner, is given as 28. Immediately after the
households in Clynboidy Cott, the next census listing is for the Crown Inn (now Park St, Amman Road, Brynaman).
Clynboidy is a corruption of Glyn-y-beudy, the old name for the area that became Lower Brynaman.
In the 1871 census the family is listed at No. 14 South Street,
David Davies Head 38 Collier born Llanwrda, Carmarthenshire
Hannah Davies Wife 39 Collier's wife born Cwmaman, Carmarthenshire
David Davies Son 16 Collier born Brynamman, Glamorgan
Jemima Davies Daur 14 Scholar born Brynamman, Glamorgan
Thomas Davies Son 11 Scholar born Brynamman, Glamorgan
Ann Davies Daur 8 Scholar born Brynamman, Glamorgan
Margaret Davies Daur 6 Scholar born Brynamman, Glamorgan
John Davies Son 4 born Brynamman, Glamorgan
Curiously, the same family (minus Jemima) were back at Clynboidy Cott (had they ever moved?) in the 1881 census
with the addition of young Hanah (sic) Davies aged 6. All the males were colliers. In 1891 widowed Hannah still had
son David (36) collier born Brecon Cwmtwrch, Hannah J (16) dressmaker born Brynaman and Annie (7) also born Brynaman living with her at
44 Park St Caegurwen. By 1901, Hannah Davies was listed in Neuadd Terrace as
a 69-year-old widow. With her were son David Davies (unmarried) 46, coal hewer, son-in-law John Harries 26, colliery engineer, born Carm Brynamman, daughter
Hannah Harries 26, and their three children: Fred Harries 4, Margaret A. Harries 2 and un-named infant aged 1 month. In the 1911 census the infant has become
aged 10. Mother Hannah Harries has a second name - Jane - and they have a daughter Hannah May aged 5. Hannah Davies aged 77 died March 19 1909.
According to Tarian y Gweithiwr April 1 1909:
Bu farw Mrs Hannah Davies, Neuadd Terrace, yn 77 mlwydd oed, dydd Gwener, Mawrth 19eg.
Yr oedd yr ymadawedig yn barchus iawn, ac un o blant yr ardal. Dydd Llun canlynol, daeth tyrfa luosog yn nghyd i ddaearu ei rhan farwol
yn mynwent Gibea, pryd y gwasanaethwyd gan y Parch W.D. Thomas, Gibea. Gadawodd amryw o blant a pherthynasau i alaru ar ei hol.
