  • Notes 
    • Birth registration: Machynlleth, Mar 1881, Volume 11b, Page 158.

      John Davies Williams was born in Church Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales and his birth was recorded as No. 89 in the Register of Births No. 11 in Pennal (Machynlleth). His Birth Certificate states he was born on Fifth February 1881 at Church Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. His name is given as John Davies (Williams), his Father as Owen Williams and his mother as Elizabeth Williams formerly Davies. The Occupation of his father is given as Master Mariner and the Signature, description and residence of informant was Elizabeth Williams, Mother, Church Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. The Birth was registered on Twelfth March 1881.

      From the 1881 Census (RG11, Piece 5478, Folio 50, Page 21), John Davies Williams (Taid), 2 months old, was living at Church Street (Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales). His father was not present (he was aboard the Olive Branch in Milford Haven) and the head of the family was his mother Elizabeth, 42, a Sailor's Wife. Also at the same address were his siblings Annie Elizabeth, 20, a General Servant, Mary, 18, a Dressmaker, Scholars Owen, 10, David John, 8, Susannah, 6, and Jane Ellen, 4, along with Thomas Owen, 2.

      From the 1891 Census (RG12 Piece 4587 Folio 48 Page 9), John Davies (Taid), aged 10, was living with his father Owen, 52, a Trinity Pilot, and his stepmother Jane, 39, at 20 Church Street, Aberdovey, Merionethshire, Wales. With him were his sister Susannah, 16, and his half-sister Maggie, 2.

      I have been unable to find Taid in the 1901 Census.

      From the 1911 Census (RG14PN22279 RG78PN1317 RD454 SD4 ED1 SN379) John Davies, 30, General Labourer from Aberdovey, Merionethshire, was with his wife Annie, 24, from Pennal, Merionethshire, and son Eric Wynne, 2, born Machynlleth, Montgomeryshire, at 40 Greenleaf Street, Toxteth Park, Lancashire, England. Visiting the family was Ann Rowlands, widow, 45, Charwoman from Towyn, Merionethshire.



      Taid is mentioned in the book 'A Real Little Seaport' by Lewis Lloyd (ISBN 1 874786 48 8) as serving as 'Boy' at a rate of £1 a month aboard the Schooner Sarah Davies. Some of the information given by Lewis Lloyd is not quite correct as he states that Taid joined the Sarah Davies at the age of 15 when in reality, according to his Discharge Book, he was a mere 13.



      The following was written by my uncle A. Peris Williams:-

      John Davies Williams

      John Davies Williams was born at Penygraig, Church Street, Aberdyfi, in 1881 where his father, Owen Williams and his mother Elizabeth Williams lived. According to the census of 1881 the household consisted of Elizabeth Williams (42), Annie Elizabeth (20), Mary (18), Owen (10), David John (8), Susanah (6), Jane Ellen (4), Thomas Owen (2), and John Davies (2 months). His father, Owen Williams was not included in the census as he was in Milford Haven at the time on board the "Olive Branch".

      Elizabeth Williams died on the 13th May 1882 when he was only 12 months old and is buried at Maethlon Cemetery in Happy Valley. Her grave is marked "Elizabeth, wife of Capt. Owen Williams, Olive Branch, and Aberdovey aged 43 years". (Many gravestones in seaside areas are marked with the name of the ship on which the deceased captained or served.)

      Owen Williams remarried. He and his second wife, Jane, at sometime later, moved to live in 1 Bodfor Terrace, where Owen Williams died on the 14th October 1924, aged 86 years. This being one month before I was born. So I never knew my grandfather.

      He and his second wife are buried together at Aberdyfi cemetery. The grave is situated two rows down and four graves to the left of our family grave.

      My father's first employment was at a grocer's shop in Liverpool owne by a relative. However, he soon returned to Aberdyfi and sailed in his first boat at the age of 13 years. This was probably the Lady Alice, transporting coal, slate, timber and corn to various ports abroad.

      He spent the next 15 years of his life sailing the seven seas. During which time he made two round the world trips. A list of ships in which he served is appended. This information is taken from hes discharge books, which are in my posession.

      He completed his active seafaring in the employ of the Mersey Light Ships.

      He married Annie Jones, my mother, at Toxteth Park, Liverpool on the 31st March 1908 and had eight sons. Eric Wynne (1908-1934), John Ivor (1909-1910), Owen Leslie (1911-2001), Richard Clifford (1912-1917), David Kenneth (1913-1978), John Ronald (1915-1965), Alan Eurwyn (1920-1991), Alun Peris (1924-). They also raised a niece, Susanah Jones, which we all regarded as our sister.

      During the First World War he was employed as a foreman fitter in the building of the Marconi wireless Station at Tywtn where all his skills were required in building huge wireless masts. His rate of pay is recorded as 6 1/2d per hour. The 1/2d being the extra pay for being a foreman. This finally rose to 10 1/2d per hour. His service to the Marconi Wireless was recognised in 1962 by being made a Member of the Marconi Transoceanic Guild.

      During the Second World War, together with his pilotage duties, he served with the National Fire Service and the local royal Oberserver Corps. I have in my possession a certificate acknowledging this service.

      In 1936 he followed in his father's footsteps and was appointed the Trinity House Pilot for the river Dyfi. This position he held fo 15 years retiring in 1951.

      My father, like all old sailors, could turn his hand to most things, and worked in painting and decorating and carpentry. mostly, however, he worked with the elements he was most happy with, which was rope and tackle and all things with a seafaring connotation. He used to sit for hours on end plaiting old rope into doormats with intricate designs. He carved wooden spoons not only for everyday use but also in competitions for local eisteddfods. For each of his sons he, carved model sailing ships.

      He was expert at repairing clinker built or carvel boats that had been damaged in storms etc. Many were the time that he waited for me to come home from school to hold the hammer for him whilst he clenched rivets to the planks that were being replaced.

      He suffered from Pageats Disease for many years and died peacfully at his home in 10, The Hall, Aberdyfi in 1964. He was buried in the cemetery at Aberdyfi where two of his sons had previously been interred.

      A.P.W.

      Thank you, Peris, for your notes.

      I have been trying to track down Taid (John Davies Williams) in the 1901 Census, so far without any luck. He was aboard the Queen of Cambria at the time of the census.

      The Queen of Cambria Caernarfon (not to be confused with the Cambrian Queen) (O.N. 74867) was a three masted iron barque (865 tons) built in 1876 by Osbourne Graham and Company, Hylton, Sunderland. She was 194.2' long by 32.8' broad by 20.2' deep and owned by Robert Jones, Plas Tirion, Pwllheli in 1876 and then William Thomas and Son, Nefyn. She was bought by Robert Thomas of Criccieth and Liverpool in 1896.

      The Queen of Cambria arrived in Dunedin, Australia on 10 Feb 1883 and is reported to have arrived in Port Chalmers, New Zealand on the same day after sailing from Deal on a 90 day voyage. The ship's Master at that time was a Captain M Parry.

      Captain Griffith Jones of Nefyn was A.B. aboard the ship between 18 Aug 1888 and 12 Jul 1889. John Davies Williams (Taid) was aboard the Queen of Cambria between 4 Mar 1901 to 11 Jun 1902 while she sailed from Caernarvon to Dunkirk and Australia.

      The vessel was wrecked on 26 May 1906, at Lobos de Tierra on passage from Lobos to Antwerp with guano. The Times, Saturday, Dec 29, 1906; pg. 4; Issue 36338; col E Wrecks, Casualties &c. Falmouth, Dec. 27 - Barque Queen of Cambria from Tocopilia (nitrate) entering port in tow, parted cable and fell across bows of Barque Crown of India, from San Francisco, damaging her bead. Queen of Cambria is cut down to water's edge, and has been beached.
