Grandma Lived Here In 1911 - a Memory of St Athan.

My grandma is recorded on the 1911 census as living at beggars pound with her mother and father and 7 siblings. They were farm labourers. Can anyone shed any light on the life she may have led whilst living here. Her name was Ethel maud jones.

We are related if your grandma was Ethel Maud Jones. If I work it out correctly Ethel Maud Jones is the great niece of Eleanor Howe nee Jones. If you go back in the census records Eleanor and her husband lived in Beggars Pound for at least 30 years. Please email me at
