Hello

I wonder if anyone could help me with some research I am doing into one of my ancestors - Joseph Yandle born c1853. He married a Mary Ann Jones in 1873. I am unable to trace his ancestors as he seems to have appeared out of no where and the only records are in the 1881 and 1911 census.
He lived at No. 3 Pitta Bach. Does anyone know where this was?
There was also talk in the family that they lived next to the Bush Hotel at some point. Two of the sons were involved in the Salvation Army Band.

Any info regarding them would be fantastic.

Many thanks

Pitta Bach is long gone, demolished in the nineteen thirties. A family named "Yandles" had a small candy store operated from the front room of their house on Commercial St.,as late as the nineteen fifties, but that residence too has been demolished.Emrys.

Hi Mugaduga,

A lot of families with the surname of Yandle are still living to this day in the town, indeed, some are members on this web-site.

Pitta Bach does appear on our on-line map of the town in 1978,

Please visit : http://www.tredegar.co.uk/panoramic/1878.htm

When the map has loaded, double click on the "T" in Tredegar to zoom in, then go up a little bit and you will see Pitta Bach on the map.

Pitta Bach was also talked about not so long ago on the forum, please pop along to here to see if that also helps.

I know there were Yandles living in Park Row (close to the Bush) until at least the late 1970s. I moved to Newport around then, so lost track of who was living in the street.

I onced lived in Laburnam ave, so did the Yandels. At that time I was mates with Ivor Yandel, he also had a brother named Trefor. I forget how many sisters he had but they were a big family. I rember the father worked down Glas Coed as a police man. From there he worked in the Lucainia Snooker Hall ( Luk ) in town. The family swapped houses with Cannon Pearse and went to live at the top of north ave, in the first house in that short street that runs down to the cresent. Ivor went on to married a Rhymney girl and lived over there. I had heared that Ivor had lost his leg's in a work accident but I am unable to confirm this. Hope this info is of use to you. Gezza

I am related to the Yandle family - My great-great grandfather David Williams (1858-1919) was married to Mary Ann Yandle (1858-1912) whose parents were John Yandle (1826-1886) and Margaret Yandle (nee Rogers) (1834-1908). This was John's second wife as his first wife Margaret Yandle (nee Mansell) died in the cholera epidemic (aged 24) and whose grave can be found in the Cefn Golau Cholera cemetery. John was born in Bristol.

Hi elynedd
You mentioned in your text about other Tredegar boys mentioned in the letters from your great-uncle. Are there any names mentioned as I am very interested in the Great War story of my great-grandfather, David Henry Williams and great-uncle Stephen Edwards who were both in the 3rd Mons.

Regards

Tony

Thanks Bryan

What is very interesting on the 1881 census above is that Edward Edwards was born in Ohio - is this Mormon country? - It looks like the family were in Rhymney in 1864, in Ohio in 1867 and back to Tredegar in 1876. Could have been part of the wagon-trains that headed west! - I new there was a reason why I liked John Wayne.

Hello, Edith was along serving councillor and possibly the 1st female.
She had a son Jim who was a keen cricketer and pigeon fancier.
She was known locally as Auntie Edie and I am pretty certain lived in Pretoria Tce. (Top row on left of Georgetown Hill).

Hi,

I am related to John Yandle (son of Cyrus Yandle) through his sister(?) Charlotte, who married my great-grandfather, Richard Edwards.
I would be grateful for any additional information.

Best,

Kevin Edwards
