Jane Williams, nee Jones
1870 - 1953

Jane is my great grandmother. She was born around 1870, allegedly on a mountain path near Dolwyddelen. Her father David Jones, was a blacksmith in the village. I have been unable to trace Jane and her family in the 1871 and 1881 censuses, but the following decade, she was working as a dairymaid for Thomas Williams, Gorsedd Grucyn, Nant y Rhiw 

In 1891 Thomas Williams 41, was head of Gorsedd, following the death of his father, with his mother, now called Gwen, aged 80. Working there was a 21 year old dairymaid from Dolwyddelan, Jane Jones - she would marry Thomas. Farm servant David Jones 17 of Dolwyddelan and John Jones 16, a labourer, also worked there. Nephew Thomas John Williams 11 was still in residence, but died aged 16 and was buried on September 29th 1896.

1901 and Thomas Williams, 51 had living with him, his wife Jane 31, 20 years his junior. Their family at the time consisted of Owen 8, Humphrey 7, Robert John 6, Winifred 4, Hannah 2 and 8 month old Jane. She died and was buried on November 3 1922 aged 23. Thomas and Jane also had an infant son Thomas 3, who died and was buried on August 8th 1896.
Thomas' mother Gwen, died at a ripe old age of 91, was also there. She died aged 94 and was buried on the 24th February 1904. All spoke Welsh.

1911, Thomas was 61, Jane 41,  their family was Robert John Williams 16, Winiffred Myfanwy Williams 14, both helping on the farm, Jane Williams 11, Gwilym Thomas 6, twins Joseph and Mair 5, Ifor Cynwyd Williams 4, Ieuan Emrys Williams 1, Ynyr Philips , 6 weeks old.The census states that Thomas and Jane had been married 19 years, they'd had 16 children, with 13 still alive, 3 deceased..

OBITUARY OF JANE WILLIAMS
(NEE JONES)


Jane Williams centre, with Mair, Sally, Hannah and Annie in 1951, at her grandson William Owen Davies' wedding to Jean Roberts in 1951.

Jane's obituary reads:

Mrs Jane Williams of Gorsedd Grycun, Nant y Rhiw, Llanrwst who died on Tuesday week, was the mother of 17 children.

The ten surviving sons and daughters together with some of Mrs Williams' 26 grandchildren and her four great-grandchildren were among the relatives and friends who attended a short service at the farmhouse on Saturday. Interment was at the public cemetery Llanrwst.

Mrs Williams was a native of Dolwyddelan, but had lived at Gorsedd Grycun for nearly 70 years. She was a member of Nant y Rhiw Congregational Chapel. Her husband, Thomas Williams (Grucyn), died 30 years ago. He was a well-known local bard whose elegiac poems gained him considerable repute.

The service at the house was conducted by the Rev. Byron Hughes, Melin Y Coed, and at the graveside by the Revs Byron Hughes, Enoc T. Davies and W.E. Thomas.

The chief mourners included Messrs. Owen Williams, E. Humphrey Williams, Robert John Williams, Joseph Williams and Ifor Cynwyd Williams (sons); Mr & Mrs Emrys Williams, Mr & Mrs Ynyr P. Williams (sons and daughters in law); Mr & Mrs Peter Williams, Mr & Mrs Hywel Jackson, Mr & Mrs Robert D. Roberts, (daughters and sons in law); Mr I. Glynne Davies, (son in law), Mrs I.G. Davies (daughter in law); Mrs A.G. Davies, Miss Ceinwen Davies, (granddaughters); and Tom E. Davies, (great grandson).

The Storm

At 3 o'clock on Thursday afternoon, an accident occurred to the train from Ffestiniog to Blaenau. There were three carriages attached to the engine, the one next to it being the first class one.
The wind on this elevated spot blew a perfect hurricane so much so, that when the train arrived within about a mile from Conglywal, the wind blew the first class carriage clean off the line, but did not tumble over.
Brakes were instantly applied and the engine was brought to a standstill. Fortunately there was no passengers in the first class carriage.
The passengers in the other two carriages escaped with a few bruises

SERIOUS MINE ACCIDENT
Montgomeryshire Express and Radnorshire Times, February 1877


The ruined building belongs to the former Cwm Fynhadog slate mine on the lower slopes of Moel Lledr. It has its own bridge over the Afon Lledr.

The correspondent to a contemporary writes as follows:-
At 9.20 on Friday, January 26, a very serious explosion took place at shaft No 1 at Cwm Nhadog, Dolwyddelen, and resulted in one man being killed and two others seriously injured.

It stated that the bore was drilled to its required depth and wiped for the purpose of loading it with the patent cotton powder manufactured by a company from Faversham. This cotton powder as is well known to many of your readers, is manufactured in oblong pieces three inches or so long, and about an inch or inch and a half in diameter.

The foreman on duty undertook to charge the bore with these cartridges. The cartridge proved too thick for the bore, and to push it to the bottom was more than he could do without converting the drill into a ramrod and hammering it down. Entirely out of patience, he ordered Hugh Hughes, Amlwch, to push it down with a cast steel drill, and at the same time he took hold of the hammer, using it with as much energy  as if he were drilling a granite rock, wich resulted in a fearful explosion, carrying destruction far and near, and trowing the workmen fromtheir standing point like gravel, crushing them in a most heart-rendering manner, and injuring Hugh Hughes so fearfully that he was pcked up insensible and survived only in great pain until seven p.m. the same day.

The two others  who were hurt are still alive with hope that they will recover. The third is Richard Edwards from Cwmystwyth, Cardiganshire. It seems that this patent cotton powder has been used ever since the tunnel was commenced some three years ago, and the foreman has been in the habit of charging bores with it for the last three years. It was stated that no explosion would take place from this powder if the cap or detonator were not attached to it.

It is further stated that there was only three inches of powder in the bore at the time of the explosion, and that all the detonators were up on top, under the care of Mr Richard Lloyd, one of the head foremen of Shaft No. 1, when the explosion took place. He always during his shift attaches the detonators to the powder, stamps the bore up, and fires the fuse.

The miners as a rule do not powder the bores drilled by them, and why the case was different in this case I cannot say. I am certain that it is stringently requested that no iron or cast steel drill should be used in stamping the bores after the cap is attached to the powder, but whether this rule is also applicable at the time when they are powdering the bore, is more than I can tell. As is the case with great works of this nature, the work at this tunnel has worked at a great expense of life and limb.

Youthful saplings and cow-boys from among the farmers, and street-skulkers, make their way among the miners into the tunnel, men who hardly ever use either drill or miner's hammer before, and these inefficient workmen assume the character of miners. It is very often the case in striking the drill that the strike misses, smashing either the hand or the knee of the person holding that holds the drill.
Young men often call on me with a sore hand, occasioned by a strike from an uncouth and inefficient workman.

Taking everything into consideration, what is strange is that men are hurried so seldom into the other world by fearful accidents and explosions at the different stages of the tunnel. 
Mr. R. Thomas, deputy coroner from Carnarvon, went through the neighbourhood (Dolwyddelen) on Monday, January 29, to hold an inquest on the body of the deceased, but as the accident took place under the "Explosives Act", he had no other business to attend to than to swear and ampannel the jury, binding each juror to appear on Monday next at Dolwyddelen Schoolroom, under a penalty of ten pounds, to complete the inquest.

The facts were communicated to the Secretary of State. I refrain from all comments till the inquest is over.

David Jones
'Y Gegin'
Dolwyddelan

Can anyone assist Ifor Williams with this request please?
Ifor can be contacted via  
mail@penmon.org

Bore da Ken
I've just read your most interesting Penmon Family history in the Dolwyddelan area.
I am currently trying to trace my great grandfather David Jones who hailed from the village
Can you please give me as much information as you can about the family associations with Dolwyddean and Roman Bridge.

I have David Jones (6 years old) living in 'Y Gegin', Dolwyddelan in 1851 and by 1871 (27 years old) in 'Twr (Ty?) Celyn, Llansannan following his marriage in 1868 to Anne Jones of Rhydeidion Ganol, Llansannan.

By 1881 I have the family living at Ty Newydd, Dolwyddelan. By 1891 the family had moved to Bryn y Mynydd, in Ffestiniog and in 1901 in Market Hall, Blaenau Ffestiniog. Can you in the first place please confirm that this info is accurate as far as you know.  


If the above info is accurate, do you know where 'Y Gegin' and Ty Newydd, are in Dolwyddelan? I know that a branch of the family lived at 'Yr Hendre' Roman Bridge and that Owen ?? kept the butcher's shop in the centre of the village in the 1950's.

I'd be very grateful for any help you can provide. The grand daughter of the family, who has never visited Wales before, is coming over from USA in October 2012 and wishes to see as many of the sites associated with the family as possible.
Diolch yn fawr
Ifor Williams
