Notes

Note H0003206/11
It is not clear why John and Jane would have married so far from their "home". On the 1871 census there is however a family of ALLEN's from Devon living in Llansamlet near Neath. I wonder if there could be a connection there.
07/11
Interesting to see that in the 1901 census Elizabeth is working as a cook for the family of a clergyman (Griffith Matthews) who was born in Tonna, Neath. Tonna is 1km up the road from where John ALLEN and Elizabeth RATHBONE (cousins of this Elizabeth) were married. This suggests that the link with this part of South Wales was perhaps on the ALLEN side rather than RATHBONE.
04/10
Notes from Source "Ronald Stanton, Family Notes, General Information.": Grandpa John James Allen. b12/12/59 d19/2/49; Telephone Foreman Ganger; Edison Bell Company. All poles from Taunton to Bridgewater. Enjoyed walking in country. Tired out. Police bring him home.

Photo from Album 1. Page 13 - Written on rear is detail that John and Jane had 11 children. Elizabeth and Gilbert were the only surviving children by time the photo was taken. The census of 1911 however says they had 7 children born alive, but only 2 remaining.
Note N00309Apparently John put up all the poles from Bridgewater to Taunton!
