Bruton or Bruttons in the Cynnon Valley
Posted by on the 23rd June 2009
I have recently aquired my grandmother's Birth certificate stating she was born in Park Terrace, Navigation, LLanfabon in 1887.
Her surname was Bruton, but on the certificate all surnames are spely#t as Brutton. Her father Jabez was a stone mason.
The family seemed to move around a lot. They were originally from the Bristol area. The first link with Wales was with the birth of daughter Minnie in 1884 in Cardiff. By 1891 they were back in Bristol. Then' in 1911 Jabez was living in High St, Nelson as a stonemason.
Does anybody know what stonemasonary jobs there were around Navigation in 1887 and in 1911?
Or if anyone could be a relation as Jabez had many siblings please get in touch. Any info about the area in the late 19th and early 20th centuries would be appreciated
