The Evans side of the family
« on: Jan 11, 2013, 01:45:35 PM »
Having got as far as I could on my paternal grandfather's side of the family I decided to try on his wife's side, however this is a bit more difficult.  Looking for Evans in Wales is a nightmare, so there are some of them that I have left for the time being.  The surnames get a bit easier with some of the descendants who have married and I have tracked down two relatives and been in touch with them.

I know it has been a while but our Evans side of the family managed to trace back to Fleetwood (Cromwell second in command)... but they mostly stayed out of Wales making it easier...

Hello GeorgEvans.  My connection with an Evans family goes back to the Liverpool Welsh Builders . They came from North Wales and built many of the two up two down houses in the late nineteenth century. Any connection do you think? Jan40

Welcome to the forum, jan40. You may have noticed that GeorgEvans' post was back in March, and no idea whether he still reads contributions here, however hope he picks up your comment!  :)
