Trying to trace Taylor family members
12:01pm Wednesday 23rd October 2013 in Letters
I AM hoping to trace living members of the Taylor family descended from Georgina (nee Thomas) and Edgar John Taylor.
They lived at 40 Tydfil Street and had nine or 10 children between 1890 and 1910. All were girls except the youngest child named after his father who died at the age of 23 in 1933. The girls names are Minnie Evelina, Lilly, Edith Alice May, Lucy, Amy, Olive, Elsie and Henrietta. It is possible that some of these girls continued to live in the area and their families would now have their married names. I am particularly interested in finding early photos of Georgina Taylor (nee Thomas) who was born in 1871, her family, parents, brothers and sisters. The Thomas family came to Wales in the 1880s to work on the Severn Rail Tunnel and moved to Barry in the 1890s which was thriving with the new docks.
I am also interested in the Kellam family who were tailors in Dock Street and Thompson Street around the same time (1890-1910).
If anyone has any information about either of these families I can be contacted via email address below.
