William Rees


William was the son of Benjamin and Catherine Rees.

He was born in Glascoed on September 20th 1870 and was baptised at Monkswood parish church on 6th November 1870. He 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.
