Notes for Walwyn JENKINS:

Also known as: Wal

Walwyn was the son of George Jenkins who moved to Llanbradach, Glamorganshire from Weobley, Herefordshire, England in 1893 for the sinking of the Llanbradach pit. Walwyn first worked in the Rhonda, then Bedwas and finally in Llanbradach, sinking a new pit. Prior to marrying Annie, he worked in "Gentleman's Service in Hereford, possibly from the age of 11, working with horses.
__________

We can see Walwyn living with his parents and siblings at Kington Road, Weobley, Herefordshire, England in 1881:
Alice Jenkins Head Mar 35 Housewife Thornbury Hereford
Alice Jenkins Daur 11 Scholar Weobley Hereford
John Jenkins Son 9 Scholar Weobley Hereford
George Jenkins Son 6 Scholar Cannon Pion Hereford
Elizabeth Jenkins Son 4 Cannon Pion Hereford
Walwyn Jenkins Son 1 Weobley Hereford

Walwyn's father George Jenkins doesn't appear to have been living with them at that time. One belief is that George never really settled in Llanbradach so even though he found work there, he kept his home in Weobley.
