Mary Ann Evans
Name: Mary Ann Evans
Born 1886. Eldest daughter of Isaac Bowen Evans. and Hannah Evans.
In 1891, the family lived at 14 Saron Row, Ebbw Vale. Mary Ann’s father’s occupation was a Colliery Foreman; he was born in Beaufort. Mary Ann’s mother Hannah was born in Ebbw Vale. The family’s preferred language is likely to have been Welsh as they are recorded as being Welsh speaking only in the 1891 census although it is very likely that they were bilingual in which case the census ought to have recorded them as speakers of ‘both’ languages; on the 1901 census, all family members are recorded as speakers of ‘Both’ languages. In 1901, they still lived at 14 Saron Row, a middle class suburb of Ebbw Vale. Isaac Bowen’s occupation is given as Colliery Surface Foreman at this time.
The family cannot be located on the 1911 census. The next confirmed address for the family is 11 Armoury Terrace, Ebbw Vale which is given as the home address of James Brinley Evans, Mary Ann’s younger brother, on his army records dating from May 1918. It was also the same address given by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission for Mary Ann’s next of kin.
