(Anc have her age as 11 but if so, it's out of order, looking closely, the horizontal stroke is present but very feint - however, it should be more like 8) b: Oakthorpe (???), Jane 3, Agnes 1, bdr Geo. Lovett 31, Elizh. Lovett 32, Geo. Lovett
1891: Barrells Hall Mansion, Ullenhall, Wootton Wawen, nr Henly in Arden, Warks.

Elizabeth's back-story proved tricky to uncover.

1. There is no doubt that the 1901 and 1911 censuses relate to the same Elizabeth claiming to be born in Ystradgynlais or nearby Swansea.
2. A Handsworth marriage record for Charles George Taylor suggests that his bride was Elizabeth Bradford.
3. Son Reg's birth cert of 1912 also states that his mother's maiden name was Bradford.
4. There is a Warks 1891 census record for an Elizabeth Bradford from Wales in service at Barrells Hall but her age is given as two years younger than expected (not a deal-breaker). Away from home, it doesn 't help much.

5. According to a helpful librarian in Ystradgynlais, there were two Bradford children both baptized in Ystradgynlais Parish Church on 18 Oct 1875 - Elizabeth and William, their parents were John William & Elizabeth Bradford.
6. The marriage certificate for Charles George Taylor & Elizabeth Bradford was obtained. This also gives her father's name as William but more usefully, the witnesses are siblings of the bride & groom (Jane & Francis - confirming that we have the correct CGT) - and addresses are given.

7. The 1891 census places father & sister in the same road as the bride on the 1895 marr cert., confirms the mother as Elizabeth and adds other siblings.
8. The 1901 census strengthens the connection between Elizabeth and parents William & Elizabeth by recording her 3yr old son Harry Taylor (ie Charles Henry) staying with them in Handsworth
9. Earlier censuses show that her father more frequently used only his middle name - his full name being John William Bradford.
10. No Welsh birth record for Elizabeth has been found but the birth of an Elizabeth Bradford in 1874
was registered in Ashby-de-la-Zouch - suggesting that 'our' Elizabeth was actually born in Oakthorpe, Derbys (as recorded in the 1881 census) and the family then moved to Ystradgynlais where she and her brother were baptized.
11. Younger sister Jane's birth was registered in Cannock in the first quarter of 1878, suggesting that the family had moved back to the midlands after just two or three years in Wales. The closure of the Ynysgedwyn Ironworks in 1872 and subsequent decline in the area's economy may have been a significant factor.

1891 Barrells Hall:
Location: Google Maps and some pictures.

When William Newton died in 1862 his eldest son, Thomas Henry Goodwin Newton, inherited the estate and Hall. This era saw the Newtons build a new Church, Vicarage, Village School, and Coffee House for the Village.

"The property is now possessed by T.H.G. Newton, Esq., . . . The present proprieter has added a spacious conservatory on the west front, through which is now the principal entrance, and has built a new wing on the east". Hannett - The Forest of Arden 1894.

Thomas Henry Goodwin Newton died in 1907 and the estate and Hall passed to his son, Hugh Goodwin Newton. It is said that he was well liked in the area but for some reason he decided to sell the property and estate in 1919 and move to Somerset.
Current value - about 10m

1875 Ystradgynlais, Swansea & Red Herrings
The registration district for Ystradgynlais changed on 1 July 1875 from Neath to Pontardawe so these two records might be related but they're not children of JW&E:
1869 Oct-Dec: Arthur Edward Bradford - Neath 11a 490
1876 Aug-Sep: John Bradford - Pontardawe 11a 621

Other Bradfords in the area:
8 Oxford St, Swansea. George Bradford, a licensed victualler/wine merchant, b1823 in Leominster, Hereford, d1880 in Swansea, wife Mary Anne Britain b1835 near Newport in Salop (m1854). The children include: Emily b1855, Frederick b1857, Alice Mary b1860, Minnie b1863, William Ernest b1865, Edith b1866, Florence Annie b1868, Kathleen b1869, Llewellyn Albert b1871, Sydney b1874, Harry Herbert b1876, Bessie b1877.

Marriage Notes (Charles George Taylor)
Charles George Taylor & Elizabeth Bradford Jan-Feb-Mar 1895 West Bromwich 6b 800
This is a key record and is one that gives us CGT's wife's surname (the other is the mmn of their son Reginald Austin)

It is also the key to finding Elizabeth's parents:
From Marr.Cert.:

3rd Mar 1895 at the Parish Church of Handsworth, Staffs by Banns
Charles George Taylor 26 Bachelor - Gardener - Penn, W'ton. f: George Taylor - Coachman
Elizabeth Bradford 24 Spinster - no occ - College Rd, Handsworth. f: William Bradford - Bricklayer
Witnesses: Francis Dunkley Taylor & Jane Bradford

Francis was a brother of Charles so Jane was likely to be a sister of Elizabeth and clearly, she was alive in 1895 so locating her in the 1891 census in the area of Handsworth seemed to be the way forward - and it was - a 13 year old Jane is found in College Road with her parents: bricklayer William and Elizabeth both from Derbys. Looking for this group in other censuses we find Elizabeth with her parents only in the one of 1881 (where, contrary to all other censuses, her place of birth is given as Oakthorpe, Derbys.
