Chapel Ed Cottages

Chapel Ed Cottage No.1

Chapel Ed cottages.

I know very little about when the cottages were built, but I do know my granny lived there and at least one of her 11 children was born at Chapel Ed Cottages whilst she was living there.

On the 1881 census Thomas Evans aged 29 with his wife Elizabeth 28 and daughter Mabel 4 and Edwin 1 lived at Chapel Ed Cottages.

The next mention I can find is the death of Selina Thomas aged 57 in May 1893, she was buried at Monkswood.

At the time of the 1911 census the cottage was unoccupied.

The 1914 poor rate says William Lewis is the owner of Capel Ed trustees, this remained the same until at least 1922.
