Evan & Eleanor Thomas
of Brymbo

Evan Thomas was born in Brymbo, Denbighshire, around 1797.

Eleanor Roberts was born in Llanelidan, Denbighshire, around 1800.

Evan became a collier and married Eleanor.  Among their children were:

John ca. 1836  
Eleanor 19 Apr 1839 Brymbo, Denbighshire
Sarah Q3 1840  
Evan Q4 1842  
Isaac Q3 1845  

In 1851 Evan and Ellen were living in Brymbo with five children and three lodgers.

Evan appears to have died in 1855 and his son, John, married in 1858.  By 1861 Ellen still had the three youngest children at home but by then had six lodgers.  In 1871 she was still running her lodging house in Howard Street with six lodgers and she appears to have died in 1878.

Of their children:

    Alfred Q2 1876  
    In 1881 John’s wife was shown as Margaret and his mother-in-law Jane Colley was staying with them.  Had he remarried? By 1891 he was a widow and in 1901 his address was given as 27 Castle Town Road.
  • Eleanor married a Parry, but was widowed shortly afterwards.  She subsequently married Edwin Parry of Broughton, where they lived at Moss.
  • Evan married Mary Roberts in 1863 and by 1871 they were living at Windy Hill, Gwersyllt, with their 6-year-old son John Isaac.
  • Isaac became a coal miner, married Sarah Howard in 1868 and in 1871 they were living in Howard Street, Brymbo, with the first two of their children:
    Ellen Edith Q3 1868

    George Howard  Q3 1872  
    In 1881 they were living in Cappers Lane, Brymbo, and by 1891 Isaac was widowed and living in Gwersyllt.  In the later census records he called himself Isaac Llewellyn Thomas.
