James Powell (1860-1914) & Mary Haddock (1864-1928), Aylburt (General)

I am trying to track down any descendants or relatives of James Powell (1860-1914) and Mary Ann Haddock (1864-1928) of Aylburton, their known children were:

  • William (1892-1916), KIA in France 1916, and appears on the Aylburton War Memorial
  • Fred (1885-?)
  • Emma (1887-1923) married Charles (aka Amos) Price, they had three children; Florence aka Dorothy? born 1907, Rosa Mary born c1909 and William Fred born 1912
  • James (1888-1957) married Mary Watkins, they lived at Ninewells
  • George (1891-?) last known record of George he is living at 61 Pengam Road, Aberbargoed, Monmouthshire and is lodging with brother James
  • Thomas (1893-?)
  • Esaias aka Charles (1895-1912) killed at Norchard Colliery
  • Hephzibah (1897-1898)
  • Rosa Mary (1900-1903)
  • Phillip (1904-1905)
  • Harry Evan (1905-1949) married Annie Rose Jones in 1923

The 1911 Census for James and Mary records that they had 12 children, but I can only account for 11. Three children had died by 1911, these being Hepzibah (who was named after her grandmother Hepzibah Haddock), most likely Fred, and the name of the twelfth child whose name I do not have. Thomas was still alive in 1911, as shown on the Census Return.

I suspect that there are not many descendants, with so many family members dying young.

If anyone is able to fill in any of the blanks or has a family connection then please get in touch.

Hi gwyn66,

Thanks for getting in touch, I understand that George married Evelyn at Tidenham.

From what I can see George and his brother James (my great great grandfather) were lodging at Pengham Road, Aberbargoed when the 1911 Census was taken.

Could you set your login up to receive emails? I would love the chance to correspond, and find out more about George.
