Hughes, John E

John was born into a Welsh speaking farming family and the 1901 census records that they lived at the Station Lodge, Nannerch. His father John was born in Ruthin and was employed as a cowman probably working on the local estate and his mother Hannah was born in Dyserth. By 1911 John had sisters Margaret and Bessie and a brother Llewelyn and the family continued to live at the Station Lodge in Nannerch.

Ganwyd John i deulu ffermio sy’n siarad Cymraeg ac yn ôl y cyfrifiad 1901 roeddem yn byw yn y Station Lodge, Nannerch. Mi gafodd tad John ei eni yn Ruthin a chafodd ei gyflogi fel cowmon ac yn debyg iawn roedd o’n gweithio ar yr ystad lleol. O Ddyserth oedd Hannah ei fam. Erbyn 1911 roedd y teulu wedi tyfu gan fod chwiorydd Margaret a Bessie a brawd Llewelyn ac yn dal i fyw yn y Station Lodge Nannerch.
