Family Research – can you help?

historyWe have been approached for help in researching a family history. If you can help with his search please contact this website and all information will be passed on.

Errol Chandler sent the following :

My father was born in Pontybodkin in 1893.
I am looking for any source of information/documents etc that could help in my research.
At the time the family were the owners of the Pontybodkin Cannel Colliery.
(The family name is: CHANDLER )
My grandmother was a Pontybodkin girl, Jane Ann Jones.
Her father was the postmaster/dentist/chemist in the village for many years, approx 1881-1901+, and was referred to as “Dr”. John Jones.
I attach a copy of the scroll presented to my paternal great-grandfather, Samuel Chandler junior, by the people of Pontybodkin in 1896….as this may provide you with some information regarding my research.

Any assistance or advice will be much appreciated.
Errol Chandler

The scroll needs to be rotated by 180′ to view correctly
