  • Notes 
    • From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 5478 Folio 74 Page 3) we see that Gwen, 27, is living with her husband, William on her father-in-laws farm, Dyffryn Gwyn, Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales. Also present are her children Anne, 3 and William, 1, both born in Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales. The household has a General Servant, Mary Owen, 18, a Nurse, Mary Jones, 18, an indoor Servant, Enoch Morgans, 25, and a Shepherd, Henry Pughe, 15. Finally, yet another William Thomas, 4, a visitor from London.

      From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 4587 Folio 58 Page 2) Gwen, 37, was with her husband William, 38, a Farmer, at Dyffryngwyn, Dauddyfryn, Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales. With them were their children Ann, 13, William, 11, Mary, 9, Hugh, 6, and David, 1. The family had two Farm Servants; Hugh Edwards, 25, from Cemaes, Montgomeryshire and John Daniel Evans, 20, from Brwyno, Cardiganshire along with a Domestic Servant Mary Pugh, 18, from Pantyron, Merionethshire.

      From the 1901 Census (RG13 Piece 5190 Folio 25 Page 14), Gwen and William have moved to Tynewydd Farm, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. Their children Annie, 22, William, 21, Hugh, 16, David J, 11, Catherine E, 9, John, 7 and Richard, 2 are also present along with her Aunt, Ellen Griffiths, a 90 year old bedridden widow of no means.
