      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.

    2. [S47] Email, ALLEN, Steve; 2013 06 19;.
      Good to meet you Mark

      I've been using Ancestry.co.uk for about a week now and thanks to for tree and my mum have managed to fill in quite a bit already.
      I'm steve_j_allen if you want to search for me.
      I not sure how I can share my complete tree with you and any advice would be useful.

      You have some really great photos and I will try and get scans from the ones that my mum has sitting in a tin at her house and contribute them.

      So the story with Don is interesting.
      He met a women Maud Elsie M. Oldfield 13 year his older and that was just not the done thing back then.

      They married and Maud got pregnant at the same time as Don had to go off to war.
      My mum June Allen (nee Ford) has love letter between them at this time and apparently Don was due to come home shortly after he got killed.

      My father Michael Donovan Joseph Allen was born 12th April 1938.
      It seems that Joseph and Mary Matilda Allen (nee Mills) acted more as his parents than Maud.
      This did lead to our family having a difficult relationship with Joseph's daughter Gwen.

      I assume that because the wider Allen family didn't approve of Maud then that is why we didn't really get to know them even though I did actually get a couple of picture books from the Whites in Australia.

      So our tree down from Donovan is
      Donovan and Maude Elsie M. Allen (nee Oldfield)

      Michael Donovan Joseph Allen married June May Ford

      The Fords and the Oldfields are old Bristol families that seem to dominate Bedminster and Dundry respectively.
      There are also Honeyfields in the tree as well on my mums side.

      Childen
      Steven John Allen (me) and Carol Ann Allen

      My Children were born in Oslo Norway to my no ex Danish wife Marie Risted Allen
      Oscar and Sune Allen live in Copenhagen and I now live and work in London.

      Carol married and subsequently divorced Lawrence Eskell and they had 3 girls.
      Hannah, Lucy and Charlotte Eskell.

      Anyway, let me know if i can share my tree directly with you somehow and let's have a chat sometime.
      I also hav to decide which option to pay for on ancestry.co.uk as i'm currently just using a 2 week trial to get started.
      Any advise welcomed.

      My number is 07887972700.
      Ring any time.

      All the best
      Steve
