Dear Mike, thank you so much for shedding some light on this quandary which has had me sighing deeply in frustration for some while... interesting that he went by the name of Evans, but also by the name of Ambrey (in one of its many versions).

at least 2 of the children also went by the name Evans - Emily Evans Ambrey eventually became my husband's great great grandmother...

I have found many entries on different databases of the Ambrey variation, I'm assuming this was a strong local name, as Wilkins also appears to be.

Once this virus calms down, we're hoping to visit the Forest of Dean, to get a better sense of where the family came from.

William Edwin Wilkins was registered as a free miner in June 1920, but by 1925 had set sail for Philadelphia where he worked as a miner for some 6 years before returning to the UK

Thank you for your help, it's a great forum.
