Mary Ann Rees

Mary Ann was the daughter of Benjamin and Catherine Rees.

She was born in Glascoed on December 3rd 1868 and was baptised at Monkswood parish church on 24th January 1869. She appeared on the 1871 census of Glascoed at the family farm, Lower Wernhir.

The family had to move away from Glascoed by 1879, since the farm had to be sold to pay death duties for a family member who was in Australia, according to family folklore. The family moved to Bootle by 1881, via Gloucester.
