    ooh good spot, born in Dec 1903 so maybe his mother remarried, is that what you are thinking, will must be worth getting for £1.50 along with maybe his?

    There doesn't seem to be a birth that matches and a tree has her with some beautiful photo's and she isn't a Roberts!

    Well worth £1.50 I thought until I saw the tree, but maybe lass knows more.

    According to FMP these are all born in Newtown, with MMN Roberts

    Davies Richard Robert 1892
    Davies Alfred George 1893
    Davies Mary Ellen 1895
    Davies Elizabeth Jane 1897
    Davies Jane Elizabeth 1898
    Davies Agnes Winifred 1900
    Davies Albert Edward 1901
    Davies Phyllis May 1904
    Davies John Eric 1905
    Davies Richard Pryce 1907
    Davies Frances Elizabeth 1909
    Davies Lewis Ernest C 1909
    Davies Mary Winifred 1910
    Davies Gwendoline I 1912
    Davies Edward S 1921

    I hadn't searched before 10 years at 1921, I have no idea what this means...

    Off out now to pick up husband, guess there must be a census with them on.
