Families of John William Stoneman - England and Wales - UK

JOHN WILLIAM STONEMAN (my husband's great-great-grandfather) was born on 27 July 1866 (source 1.), in Torquay, Devon, England, United Kingdom, to John Stoneman and Mary Elizabeth Stoneman [German].

I havent been able to find the family Cencus for 1871, but the family, including John Williams younger brother, George, was recorded in 1881 England Census (source 2.), living in Westhill, St. Mary Church, Torquay, Devon, England, United Kingdom. In the 1881 England Census, John William, aged about 14, was working as a Carpenter.

John William first married Eva Ann Lawrence, and his second marriage was to Amy Adams (see information further down).

In 1891, aged about 24, John William and Eva Ann had moved to 29 Dehli St., Islington, London, England, United Kingdom, and he was still working as a Carpenter according to the 1891 England Census (source 4.) Their first born, Stanley George, was also recorded in the Census.

In 1901 England Census (source 5.), John William, aged about 34, Eva Ann and their 4 children, (Stanley, Ethel Rosamond, Arthur Robert, Harold) lived in 23 College PK Yer, Hammersmith, London, England, United Kingdom, and John William was working as a carpenter & joiner. Source: 1901 England Census about John William Stoneman - born 1866.jpeg in Hammersmith, London, England, United Kingdom.

Im not sure when John William moved to Wales, I only know that him and his 4 children was recorded living there in 1911. And Im not sure what happened to Eva Ann, but I think she died sometime before 1908.

On the 2 April 1911 Wales Census (source 6.), aged 44, John William was listed as married to Amy Adams, and he was still working as a carpenter, joiner and journeyman (last according to source 7.). The family was living in a 6 rooms house in Tawelfan, Godrergraig, Neath Port Talbot, Wales, United Kingdom, including John Williams children, Stanley George and Harold, from his first marriage, although his oldest son Stanley George married a few days later and moved out (source 7.). Also living there was John William and Amys child Quinnie, and Amys son from her first marriage, Harold.

John is believed to have died on 17 May 1946, aged 79, in Godrargraig, Glamorganshire, Wales, United Kingdom.

EVA ANN STONEMAN [Lawrence] was born around 1864, to John Lawrence(source 9.) and Elizabeth Lawrence (I believe her maidenname was Specks). Eva Ann is recorded in the 1871 and 1881 census, living with her parents and siblings in 2 Wellington Road, Tormoham, Devon, England, UK (source 10. and 11.). Its unknown when Eva died, but Im guessing around 1905, aged about 39, as John William re-married in 1908 according to 1911 Wales Census.

John William Stoneman and Eva Ann Stoneman [Lawrence] married 11 Sep 1887 in Newton Abbot, Devon, England, UK (source 9.) and had four children:
Stanley George Stoneman in 1890
Ethel Rosamond Stoneman in 1893
Arthur Robert Stoneman about 1896
Harold Stoneman about 1900

AMY STONEMAN [ADAMS] was born in 1883, in Little Milton, Oxford, England, United Kingdom.

Amy married twice. She was first married to John Rhys Gildas Jones in 1905, but I believe he died within a year or so. They had one son, Harold Jones in 1906.

In the 1911 Wales Census (source 6.), John William and Amy are listed as married, but looking at the free marriage index, they didn't didn't get married until 1916 (source 12.). It's believed they had 8 children;
Amy Elizabeth in 1909
Quinnie in 1910
Violet May in 1913
Margaret A in 1915
Edvin John in 1917
Ted A in 1921
Edna Pattie in 1924
Kennet M in 1926

I think Amy died in 1955, aged about 72.

Family of David Pritchard & Mrs Pritchard, Wales, UK

DAVID PRITCHARD was born around 1854. Unknown parents. Unknown birth place. In 1905, aged about 51, he was a Coal miner (source 1). Unknown time of death and place.

MRS. PRITCHARD Unknown time of birth and place. Unknown parents. Unknown time of death and place.

It's unknown when David Pritchard married Mrs. Pritchard. If family story is correct they had several children, but don't have a lot of information on this. But they had at least one son:
Thomas Pritchard about 1879
They might also had a son called:
David Pritchard in 1881

Notes:
It's beleived that both Mr. and Mrs. David Pritchard died young, leaving their children behind. They owned a lot of land, and after their death family came in to help raising the children and maintain the land. Somehow this land ended up on the family hands instead of the children. I believe the land was somewhere near the Black Mountain, Wales, UK. It might have been David's father who owned the land mentioned, since David is listed as a coal miner on his son's Thomas wedding certificate.

Help wanted:
I want to find out more about this family and what happened to them all. Names, dates, places - anything really. If you have any information, please contact me.

Please note that information in this post might be inaccurate.
