Maggie Ellen Roberts

Maggie was born in Liverpool in 1877. She appears on the 1881 census of Caim, near Cae Merddyn aged 4, with her parents, Charles Goodman Roberts, then a domestic gardener aged 27 and Maggie G Roberts aged 25. She had one brother at the time, Joseph Thomas Goodman Roberts aged 1, born in Beaumaris.

Maggie would have helped with the upbringing of her brother and other siblings Jabez, Charles Katie and Owen John. She was living elsewhere during the 1891 census, but her ill health at an early age probably brought her home to Cae Merddyn. She was sick and weak with tuberculosis and was dying.

One evening, her mother was by her bedside and Maggie's young face suddenly lit up.

"Be weli di Maggie fach?" (What can you see Maggie fach?)

"Mi welai Iesu Grist yn Ei holl ogonaint!" (I see Jesus Christ in all His glory).

Maggie died shortly after, at the early age of 20, on the 11th April 1897.

The last 'gwylnos' or vigil to be held on Penmon was for Maggie, the night before she died Cae Merddyn.

"Wele'r llwybr heddyw'n glir
 Tua Channan hyfryd dir;
Y mae'r faner fawr yn mlaen,
F' holl elynion cwympo'n wnan';
Iesu gollodd ddwyfol waed,
Minnau gafodd wir iachad."
