The journey from Wales to London in the nineteenth century

My great-great grandparents John and Jane Evans (born in 1821) were London Welsh from Merioneth and Cardigan.

About Me:
Retired grandmother. My great grandmother's parents were John Evans (Engineer from Cardigan) and Jane Rowlands (her father was Blacksmith at Dinas Mawddwy, old smithy still there but derelict).

I've been researching for over 20 years, know a lot already, and am in touch with cousins in North Wales and America. My aim is to fill the gaps and find my Evans ancestors in Cardiganshire.

Oh, I do wish Welsh names were easier for genealogists, but then I have also have an English ancestor called Thomas Smith!
