Thomas family of Anglesey

Journal by carolburns

I have been researching my Father's side of the family and this is as far as I have got though I would like to go further back if possible or even come forwards and find a few more living relatives

My earliest ancestor on this side is William Thomas born about 1810 in Llanfechell, Anglesey. He married Margaret Jones who was born in 1803 in Llanfaelog, Anglesey. William was a Blacksmith.

They had 3 children - Owen born 1833 Llanrhyddlad, Margaret born 1839 Llechylched and William born 1841 Llechylched

Owen married Eleanor Williams born 1835 Llechylched. She is the daughter of Edward Williams , a silk weaver and Anne. Owen and Eleanor married in 1855 in Llechylched and had 8 children. Owen was also a Blacksmith and they lived in Ceirchiog, Anglesey

All I know of Margaret is that she was a dressmaker. I know of no marriage

William is my direct ancestor. He married Elizabeth Price born 1842 Liverpool. Elizabeth is the daughter of John Price born 1821 Liverpool and Catherine Morris (possibly her name) born in 1820 in Llanfaelog. John Price was an Accountant for a brewery in Liverpool. William and Elizabeth married in 1864 in Holyhead and they had 6 children. William was also a Blacksmith in Llanfaelog and they lived at Ty Newydd

Catherine born 1865 in Holyhead. She is my Great Grandmother. She married John Williams born 1872 Llangristiolus, Anglesey

Elizabeth was born in 1867 in Aberffraw but died in 1870

William was born in Aberffraw in 1869 and married Mary Ann Jones. They had 5 children and lived in South Wales. Children were David Morgan Jones b 1891, Maggie C born 1893, Lizzie jane born 1894, Owen b 1897 and William born 1902

John James was born in Rhosneigr in 1872. he married Mary Williams who is the sister of John Williams. John James eventually went to Colwyn bay where he built 3 streets and named one after my Father - Kenneth Avenue (still standing in Colwyn Bay).

Owen was born in Aberffraw in 1875 but died in 1893 in Holyhead. This was due to a shipping accident.

Margaret was born in Llanfelog in 1877. She had a son Owen Edward born in 1904 in Rhosneigr. She then moved to Penmaenmawr and married John Morris. We have met the son of Owen Edward.

Catherine and John Williams moved to Bangor,Caernarvonshire and they have 9 children

Elizabeth Catherine born 1892 Holyhead
William John born 1895 Llanfaelog
Anne jane born 1897 Llanfaelog
Owen Thomas 1899 Lalnfaelog
Charles Napier 1901 Llanfihangel yn nhowyn
Emma Maud 1904
Thomas Hynes 1906 Bangor
Charlotte Amy 1908 Bangor
Mary Elma 1910 Bangor

Catherine also had a son before her marriage to John Williams in 1891 - Robert Thomas was born in Llanfaelog in July 1889. His father is unknown but we do know that he moved to Holyhead and married and had at least 4 children.

Mary Elma is my Grandmother and she married Hughie Gordon Thomas born 1913 Llandeiniolen, Caernarvonshire. They had 3 children - Sheila, Elizabeth and my father Kenneth Gordon Thomas born July 1935 in Pensaerwen

Now I am hoping that somewhere out there are some relatives of Robert's or even John James or even some of my Grandmothers siblings.

Does anyone have any links to this family or even the smallest bit of info?

I look forward to hearing from you all
