The Watkins family

Henry Watkins was born in Saint Torvence in about 1819 and married Maria Jenkins, a Glascoed girl in 1846 at Llanddewi Fach. They had worked together at Lower Wernhir.

See their bios for further detail on them, plus that of one of their children, Edwin, who later emigrated to the United State of America (to Newman, Illinois).

They also had seven other children:

I have only created a Bio page for Edwin so far.

I assume for all the children that Glascoed means at Pergoed farm and Llanbaddock means at Upper House (Llanbaddock).
