James FREEMAN and Alice BROWN - Glamorgan, Wales


I'm looking for information on James Freeman and Alice Brown.

Children include:

Alice Freeman
Cornelius Freeman
Edward Freeman
James Freeman
John Freeman
Nellie Freeman
William Freeman
Mary Elizabeth Freeman
18 Jan 1905 in Baddau, Llantrisant, Pontypridd, Glamorgan, Wales

My ancester is Mary Elizabeth Freeman who came to Australia sometime in the early 20th Century.

I've been unable to find any details of her parents.

Any assistance would be great!


EDIT: I've been able to find some further information. I believe James FREEMAN's parents were Cornelius FREEMAN and Mary UNKNOWN, both born in Ireland (Londonderry for Cornelius and Cork for Mary).

It also appears that his wife, Alice, like James, while born in Wales had Irish parents, her mother was Ellen BROWN from Cork.
