The family of Samuel Thomas Evans

by franklittle on 14 September, 2008

evansgrave2.jpgPeople in Skewen and Neath Abbey are currently researching the descendants of Sir Samuel Evans, the great Edwardian Solicitor-General and judge, who was born at his parents’ grocery shop in Skewen on 4th May 1859. He died in Brighton 90 years ago, but his remains were brought back to Neath and lie in St John’s parish churchyard.

It appears from this family tree that his parents John & Margaret Evans also lived in Cadoxton, where Samuel’s sisters Rachel and Sarah were born.

It would be good to welcome any collateral as well as any direct descendants of Sir Samuel to next year’s commemoration, so any information about the Cadoxton connection would be useful.
