Lee, Logan

I can only find the family of Logan Lee on the 1911 census, and as the family were Hawkers, they moved around to many places in North Wales pursuing their trade.   It is hard to pin them down to a particular area and I do believe that there are a few discrepancies on the census regarding dates and places of birth.   Any help would be gratefully received.

In 1911 the family were living in 2 vans at Tykey Shore, Holyhead.  George Lee, 46  a Hawker who had been born in Caernarvon was the head of the household.   His wife Mary Ann Lee, 44 had been born in Oswestry and they declared that they had been married 26 years. 8 children had been born and 1 had died. Their eldest son, William Henry Lee, 25  also a Hawker had been born in Nevin and with him was his wife Tilly, 21.  Most of the children were described as hawkers and all had been born in North Wales.  Daughters Garald  Fraida Lee 20,  Ado Lee 17 and  Gladis Mabll Lee 15. Sons Alger & Malcolm Logan  Lee were said to be 14. (Logan was not a hawker and was born in Pwllhelli).   George Vincent Lee was 11.

Logan is said to have been born in Nevin on his Army documents.  Pwllheli, is the nearest town.

British Army WWI Medal Rolls Index Cards, 1914-1920 about Logan Lee tells us that he was formerly in the Royal Welsh Fusiliers and then the South Wales Borderers.

UK, Soldiers Died in the Great War, 1914-1919  confirms Logan’s regimental information and tells us that he was born in Nevin and his residence was Llanfwroy, Ruthin and he enlisted in Wrexham.

Please can anyone help explain this soldier’s connection with Hawarden.
