Other than Tonypandy/Rhondda Valley.
The other main place for the Welsh side of the family outside the Rhondda – Hughes, Rees, Phillips, Hickman and a Watkins or two.
When I was growing up, I always thought Mum’s family came from Llanelli and Swansea, but perhaps it was just the area she knew best as a child herself. I don’t think that we have any real Swansea connection, and the family was only in Llanelli for perhaps 7 years. However ‘Uncle Frank’ (Watkins) did live and work there most of his life, as did the Walters.
