Roberts Family Romany

A Memory of Aberkenfig

In 1918 my great gran's father Samson Roberts, a horse dealer, was injured during a horse race on the 'Golden Mile' near Aberkenfig. He died of his injuries at home in Dunraven St, Aberkenfig. His wife, Mary Ann, was a tiny lady and they had 11 children.  His brother Joey 'Jockey' Roberts owned a scrapyard in Aberkenfig.
