Romany Gypsies

A Memory of Abersychan.

My great granny, Genty Jenkins (nee Roberts), her husband David, and their baby Celia camped by the Robin Hood in Pontnewynydd, Abersychan in 1911 in a tent. Gentys sister, Celia Attewell (nee Roberts) was there with her husband Richard and their children. Was there a big gypsy presence then? They came from Kent so I'm unsure how they ended up there. David and little Celia vanished off the face of the earth and Genty remarried to a Percy Price of Brynmenyn.
