Born In Penrhiwceiber - a Memory of Penrhiwceiber.
Hi, my name is Marilyn Piper. I have lived in Sydney, Australia for 42 years and now reside on the Central Coast. I was born at 111 Penrhiwceiber Rd, Penrhiwceiber in 1945. My mother's name was Annie Parker who had 4 brothers. My uncle Willlis Parker was a builder in the area. He had 11 children (3 emigrated to Oz in 1960/70). A few of his sons also became builders in Penrhiwceiber. My mother married Melvin Francis Goodwin in 1944 but divorced in 1950 when I was 5 yrs. I have been trying to find my father without success as I have limited knowledge of him or any photos. I was christened in St Winifred's Church as Marilyn Goodwin. If anybody can be of any help I would love to hear from you. My children keep trying but we have such limited information and they would love to know what happened to him. We had rumours that he was deported back to Canada. Can't wait to hear from someone. Regards Marilyn.
