Jones, Robert LIewelyn

Robert Llewelyn first appears on any census in 1881, living at The School House, Llanddoget, Denbigh, Wales.  His father Robert O. Jones, 26, was  Head of the household and a School Master who had been born in  Llanddeiniolen, Caernarvon, Wales, His mother, Elizabeth Jones 30, had been born in Llanllechid, Caernarvon, Wales.  Their  children were Richard O Jones 3  and  Robert Ll. Jones age 1. He, like his father, had been born in Llanddoget, Denbigh, Wales.

By the 1891 census they had moved to Boy’s School House in  Bettws y Coed, Caernarvonshire. Father, Robert O 36 was still a School Master. Elizabeth, his wife was 39. Richard O jnr was 13, Robert Llewelyn was 11. There was a new addition to the family. Margaret M.G  was  3.  They all spoke English & Welsh, except daughter Margaret who only spoke English.

On the 1901 census Robert Llewelyn, 21 was working as a Draper’s Assistant in Wrexham living at 14, Hope Street, Wrexham Denbighshire. There were 9 Draper’s assistants boarding at this address.  There were 3 Domestic Servants.

I believe that Robert married Charlotte Gertrude Howell in Holy Trinity Church, Oswestry in the September quarter of 1906 (Shrewsbury  C-OS18/2/114 ShropshireBMD)

The1911 census tells us that Robert Llewelyn had moved to Paris House, 113 High Street Connahs Quay, Flintshire. where he was a  Draper ( Millinery & Fancies) and was an Employer. He had been married for 5 years and had one child.  Robert’s wife and child were not there that night so are not recorded on the census. Consequently we don’t know their names. There was a servant, Lucy Bennion listed.
