Hi Jefff, having a grand time and tidying up many loose ends at the same time. My Great GrandfatherH was born at Ox Pasture Upton Bishop in 1880 but married in Pontypridd and all but one of his children were born in Wales.Their eldest child died in early childhood of Diptheria abt 1905 but I have never been able to find her birth or death records, I was told her name was Lizzie.

Last night I found this site and looked at the Parish Records for my Ggrandad and up popped the baptism record for Annie Elizabeth born 1904 in Pontypridd and Baptised at Upton Bishop -result :)

Phillips of Upton Bishop

by Jefff @, Thursday, May 03, 2012, 05:27 (1116 days ago) @ dollymay

Glad to hear your enjoying your visit DollyMay !.
As you can imagine there are many examples of Foresters moving to and from the Welsh valleys either for coal or ironworking. My father's line are coalmining Jones' from Wales. Indeed as an apprentice metal-basher I went to study at Treforest near Pontypridd for three years in the 80s, are you thereabouts?. Has it stopped raining yet ? :-)
In fact it's a perhaps curious coincidence looking back, the "Poly Of Wales" had started as the Treforest Mining School, just as my previous tech college had in my home Forest town Cinderford. I had a good classmate at Poly who was NCB sponsored, goodness knows what line he's in now!.
AND I drank beer at the club my "ancestor" Tom Jones started his career in !

I must visit Ponty one day for old times sake, I'm trying to remember the name of the area up above the rugby ground where I lived, it overlooked old mine workings I think?, probably all landscaped now.

Happy Hunting !

Phillips of Upton Bishop

by dollymay @, Thursday, May 03, 2012, 07:59 (1116 days ago) @ Jefff

It's still raining here in the beautiful Towy Valley Carmarthenshire.
I also have connections to the Pontypridd area namely the Merrimans of Ystradyfodwg.
My ancestors seem to be either Agri Labourers or Miners a hard life for both !.
Other names in my Herefordshire tree are Green's and Collin's and the furthest Phillips I have been able to trace is James Phillips abt 1811 at Bacton so still some happy hunting to do.
