  • Notes 
    • From the 1851 Census (HO107 Piece 2495 Folio 186 Page 24) Gwen, 36, was with her husband Evan, 38, a Labourer, at Gellifach, Pennal, Merionethshire. With them were their children Mary, 12, Susan, 7, Elizabeth, 5, and Richard, 2. Lodging with them was Hugh Jones, 78, a Retired Labourer.

      From the 1861 Census (RG9 Piece 4240 Folio 32 Page 5) we see Gwen, 45, and her husband, Evan, 46 are living at Penrhynbach in the township of Cynfalfawr in the ecclesiastical district of Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. Gwen was born in the Parish Of Talyllyn, Merionethshire while Evan, an Agricultural Labourer, was born in the Parish Of Pennal, Merionethshire. Their children are Richard, 12, a Scholar born in the Parish Of Talyllyn, Merionethshire, Evan, 9, a Scholar born in the Parish Of Pennal, Merionethshire, Gwen, 6, John, 4 and Ellen, 6 months, all born in the Parish Of Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales.

      From the 1871 Census (RG10 5603 Folio 46 Page 2) Gwen, 56 and her husband, Evan, 57, are living in Lower Pennal. Evan is an Ag(ricultural) Lab(ourer) born in Pennal, Merionethshire. Gwen was born in Talyllyn, Merionethshire. Ellen, their 11 year old daughter is with them and was born in Towyn, Merionethshire, Wales.

      From the 1881 Census (RG11 Piece 5478 Folio 8 Page 10) Gwen, 66, Woodman's Wife, was with her husband Evan, 67, Woodman, in Pennal Village, Merionethshire, Wales. They both indicate their birthplace as Pennal, Merionethshire, Wales. With them was their daughter Ellen, 21, Bonnetmaker, also born in Pennal.

      From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 4587 Folio 8 Page 10) Gwen, 76, was with her husband Evan, 77, a General Servant at Esguborfawr, Pennal, Merionethshire, Wales. With them was their granddaughter Elizabeth, 8, Scholar.

      A gravestone in Pennal Cemetery indicates that Gwen died in 1899. This is the wrong Gwen as the Gwen Jones that died on 3rd June 1899 was in Church Street, Pennal at the time of her death. This residence was occupied by Richard Jones, 47, an Ordinary Agricultural Labourer, Worker, born Penegoes, Montgomeryshire and his wife Ann, 55, from Derwenlas. Their offspring were Johnny, 21, a Slate Slab Quarryman, Morris Ll., 19, Scholar and Lizzie M., 16, all from Pennal, Merionethshire.

      There is a record of a Gwen Jones death in September 1891 in the District of Machynlleth (Vol. 11b, page 115) and I am looking into that.
