Tracing my ThomasFamily of Abertillery then, Bakers in Blaina until taken over by Mother'Pridebakeries i the 1960's.
My Grandmother was Born 3,Commercial St, Abertilery in 1877, 3rd child of Thomas Thomas B. Redbrook, Glos in 1837, a Tin Plate Roller. He married an Ann Price about 1870-1 in Abertillery. From 1970 he was a Widower. This was hissecond Marriage. They had Sarah Ann B. 1873-4. Robert B. 1874. Elizabeth. B. 1875. Mary Jane. B. 1877, My Grandmother. Beatrice. B.1879. Priscilla. B.1881. Thomas Edmund. B. 1884. John E. B. 1887. I belive that this Thomas Edmund either started the Bakery in Blaina or was managing it, for the Family. I have my Line from my Grandmother Mary Jane, but I would appreciate finding the others and their descendents. Is it possible you can help, or point me in the right direction? I am 83 this month and an ametuer on a PC.
My regards to you,
Norman B. Johnston.
Yes wimberries are a unique taste ,and you can still pick them on the arael mountain.
Winberrys, wymberrys, winberries?? not sure of the correct spelling but my nan used to make a tart from them and i've never tasted anything similar since. Not a blueberry and not a blackcurrant but better! I can't find a supplier anywhere but would love to have thatb taste again! I'm sure they would be the best selling health food in any supermarket.
Still living on Roseheyworth Rd, Antwerp Place, if Susan would like to get in touch contact my daughter by email (email@example.com).
When I lived on Rose Heyworth Road during World War II I used to go up the Arael with my friends to pick winberries for my mother to put in a tart. I think I went up the mountain with my friends Judith Morrell, Shirley and Meryl Davies, maybe also members of the Rees family from the bakery.We moved to Newport in 1944 and I have hardly ever been back to Aber but I've never forgotten the Arael and my pals from the war years.
