Tracing Our Family Tree on Parys Mountain
by Kathleen Powell be Jones
My sisters and I visited Anglesey last week for the first time to find the home of my Grandmother Jane T Jones, near Parys Mountain.
Born 1895, her father was Owen Jones born 1872 mother Hannah Tudor Jones. Born 1871 Their mother and father was Samuel Tydur Roberts 1829-1888 and Grace Tudor Rowlands 1831 all her children were born in the now ruins of Tyn y Mynydd on Parrys mountains ordnance survey map 45 / 54 next to the water lakes.
She brought 11 children up in this house. We have all the names and were over come with joy when we found this place in the rain. We also found the house our great, great, great Aunty Ellinor Mary Roberts lived. Born 1812 which was Cerrig-y Bleiddiau (stone wolves).
Please can anyone help trace the history of the family.
Our descendants come from Llaneilian: Thomas Roberts born 1784 and Gwen Thomas born ? 1786 We can't get any further!
We think this family lived and worked in the Parys Mountain but we do not know their trades.
