Mary Susanna Morgan (1842)

Mary Susanna was born in about 1842 at Glascoed and was christened on 20th October 1842 at Monkswood Parish Church.

Her parents were John Morgan and Mary (nee Arthur). Mary spent her early life at Hill Farm. She was certainly there until at least the time of the 1861 census, where she was listed as a “Farmer’s daughter”.

Mary married David Fothergill Rowland on 6th April 1869 at St. Leonard’s, Shoreditch in London. He was an assistant surgeon.

On the 1871 census, we find Mary living with her mother at Elm Villa, Mamhilad (her father, John had died in 1864). Mary Susanna’s son, James Frederick Fothergill Rowlands was also at Elm Villa. I assume that they were visiting, although they are also there for the 1881 census.

I’m not sure where they were for the 1891 and 1901 censuses, although note that Mary had returned to Mamhilad by 1911 where she was living at Elm Cottage. She was a widow at this point and living alone on private means.

I lost track of them after this, although admittedly haven’t searched very hard! Any further information on the family will be gratefully received and published.
