Phillips Family - a Memory of Llantwit Fardre.

I am attempting to discover my family history prior to 1887. My relative, William Phillips, lived in 14 Council Street, Llantwit Fardre. He was born in Neath on 14 Sept 1852, I don't know when he moved to Llantwit Fardre. He married Rachel Thomas (b.18/7/1852 in Llaneth Verdre) in 1875/6 in Glamorganshire and they emigrated to Australia in 1886 with 5 children. Does this house still exist? Are there relatives of this family living in any of these areas, as well as Resolven where they lived for a number of years (5 of their children where born in Resolven, the eldest died there aged 2 in 1878), or Ferndale which is where the youngest child was born in 1886. They left for Australia from Ferndale when she was 3 months old. I would be grateful for any information.
