Ann Jones, c.1781-1857.

Ann Jones was born in Glascoed cir 1781. She was baptised at Usk Parish Church on 27th April 1781, the daughter of Edward and Ann Jones.

Ann married James Edwards at Usk Parish Church on 25th February 1803. James was a corvicer (shoe maker). They had several children including Leonard, James and Thomas Edwards. Leonard was christened on 11th March 1804, James on 5th April 1808. I have not been able to find a christening record for Thomas. He was born in approximately 1815 at Glascoed.

Ann and James were living together at Pentwyn, a smallholding at Glascoed in 1841 with Thomas, their son (aged “20”) and an Ann Edwards (I assume another daughter) aged “15”. Pentwyn was later renamed Cherry Orchard.

By the time of the 1851 census, Ann was a widow, and living with Thomas her son and his new wife, Mary (I assume Maria) Edwards. Ann died in 1857, and was buried at Llanfihangel Pontymoile parish church on 10th Feb 1857, alongside her husbandJames.
