Humphrey Hughes notes dated Mon, 5 Nov 2001, Edward Hughes' family had run a flannel bleaching business in North Wales in the Pandy Panterperthog near Corris since 1720 (so we have recently gathered from Pilot and Co's directory of North Wales 1835). Ruins of the house and business still exist. Edward Hughes had a number of children including Elizabeth, Humphrey and John. The boys were stonemasons, and when Elizabeth's husband died she took over the running of the Pandy.
However, in around 1825 Humphrey left and went south with his wife Gwen and three children, they had three more baptised in Monmouth (I think around Blackwood). His brother John (14 years younger) followed in 1836 and settled in (possibly Kings Terrace) Tredegar where he married Margaret Stokes in 1840
In August 1841 both brothers and their families left via Bristol on the second free emigrant ship to Port Phillip (Melbourne) on the Ward Chipman, arriving in December. Humphrey's wife died a month after landing, and Humphrey in 1851. However, John (my direct family) lived to 1902, (Margaret lived until 1904) and both brothers played a fairly significant part in the early life of what became Victoria - they were almost the only stonemasons in Melbourne when they arrived. The Hughes family was very strong in the Welsh Church in Melbourne for many years and did quite well for themselves. The story goes on from there, but does anyone have a thought on how to obtain records back before the 1841 cencus or have any other clues to this family. Would anyone know of a likely Stokes connection or is this all too vague?
