David Phillips was born in 1864 in Blaenffos, Pembrokeshire, Wales. He was the fifth child of Timothy Phillips (1830) and Martha Williams.
He married Elizabeth Ann Evans on Jul 13, 1895 in Mountain Ash. Elizabeth was born in 1875 in Mountain Ash, Glamorgan, Wales. Her parents were John Evans and Elizabeth Ann Evans.
A copy of their marriage certificate is included below. It verifies that David was the son of Timothy. This was important as we do not yet have a copy of David’s birth certificate.
In the 1901 Census for Mountain Ash, David & Elizabeth were living at 2 Streem Street in Mountain Ash. David was a Builder, Foreman. Their daughter was two and Elizabeth’s mother Elizabeth Evans (age 60) was living with them. Elizabeth Evans was shown as born in 1841 in Ryydyrwen, CarmShire. A nephew, Dan Phillips was also living with them.
Dan was listed as a Stonemason. He was born in 1881 and was the son of William Phillips (1855) & Esther Phillips. William was David’s brother.
1901 Census: 2 Streem St, Mountain Ash.
In the 1891 Census, 2 Streem St. in Mountain Ash included Elizabeth along with her parents John & Elizabeth Ann Evans and her brothers John & David.
From the above, we can presume that John Evans had passed away between 1891 and 1901 and that David & Elizabeth Phillips were living with her mother at 2 Streem St in Mountain Ash.
We know that Elizabeth died in Sept 1933 however we do not have a death date for David Phillips.
