Richard & Eliza Watkins / Isaiah & Sarah AnnWatkins of Bream (General)

Morning all,

When I moved into my house in Bream, I inherited various deeds and conveyances showing that the house was previously owned by a Richard and Eliza Watkins (maiden name James d. 1943), then passing to Isaiah (b. 1867, d.1937) and Sarah Ann (Ind) and then to their son.

Does anyone have any information to share about this family please? The house is on the tithe map, and it would be great to be able to identify the previous owners.

Richard and Isaiah were both described as coal miners - any idea to which pit they worked at?

And does anyone know the identities of the Lydney Lane dwellings on the 1891 Census? Only the road name is given, and I do not know which family lived where. Our house was a row of industrial workers cottages and it would be great to identify the names of the other families.

Many thanks in advance,
