Siblings Elizabeth, Annie and Mary are also present. The family have a 16 year old General Servant by the name of Mary J. Evans from Llanbrynmair, Montgomeryshire and an Apprentice Tailor, 16 year old Henry R(obert) Shortland from London. Henry went on to marry John's aunt, Susannah Williams.

      From the 1901 Census (RG13 Piece 5190 Folio 32 Page 6) John, now 12, and his parents are still at 11 New Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. Siblings Elizabeth, John O(wen), Mary, Olwen J(ane), Enid M(argaret), David S(amuel) and Richard B(reese) are also present. Also in the household are 19 year old John E. O. Williams a Servant Tailor from Treddol Cardiganshire and 16 year old Apprentice Tailor James J. Williams also from Treddol, Cardiganshire.
