      Hello Phil,

      Many thanks for your reply to my email to you on Ancestry regarding my Uncle James Elfed Watkins and his wife May Elizabeth Edwards. I have logged into your website, on which you have done such a lot of work and research. The following is what I know about James and May, and my relationship to them.

      James Elfed Watkins, born 5.4.1906 Argoed, Monmouthshire, and died 26.6.1940 Bangor, Caernarvonshire, was the 2nd of 8 children of Rhys Philip Watkins born 8.7.1876, Breconshire, died 15.11.1926 in Llanwrst, Denbighshire and Tydfil Price born 10.12.1885 Gelligaer Glamorganshire, died 29.5.1955 in Birmingham, England. James Elfed Watkins was the brother of my Father, William Glyndwr Watkins who was born on 25.4.1909, and died in Adelaide Australia on 24.1.1979.

      On 12.110.1938 James married May Elizabeth Edwards, born 1.5.1915 Merionethshire, daughter of Edward Hughes Edwards. Their son Anthony Edwin Watkins was born in 1939, in Birmingham, England and ? died 11.1. 2002 in Queensland. I wondered if you have any information about Anthony and if he had any family in Australia.

      After the death of James, May married in 1944 to Frank Wellington and on 23.5.1946 boarded ship at Southampton with Anthony and her daughter Pamela Mary Wellington, born 1945, to Elliott St, Clayfield, Brisbane, Queensland Australian. Electoral Rolls in Australia show May lived in Ithaca, QLD in 1949 and subsequently in 1969 in Hendra, QLD, but I cannot find any more records after that date, though there was a May Elizabeth Wellington in the Electoral Rolls in Western Australia afterwards but cannot confirm if this was my Aunt.

      I have copies of my Uncle's birth, marriage and death certificates and am happy to email them to you so they can go onto your website if you are interested in them. I also have a photo of James's headstone.

      Hoping the above information will be of interest to you, and looking forward to hearing if you would like me to email copies of the certificates.

      Regards,

      Trish
