Photos of a Treuddyn midwife…

historyThis email was received at the website from Gareth Evans…

“Although I’m not from Treuddyn I found your website and as you ask for any information and photographs about the village I thought I’d share these photos with you to see if they jog any memories. I was rooting through some boxes in the spare room and came across some photos and certificates belonging to my great aunty Myfanwy.

Marian Myfanwy Gordon, Anti Fanwy to us (my nain’s sister). Originally from Llys Farm, Denbigh. Trained and qualified as a midwife and district nurse at the Plaistow Maternity Hospital, West Ham, London (where the picture enclosed of her was taken). She nursed in the East End slums of London between the wars.

She returned home to North Wales and married William Gordon, Red House, Treuddyn. Lived in Ffrith, then Llys Awel, Llanfynydd but known to many as Nurse Gordon, on her bike, then a car around Treuddyn & Llanfynydd for 35 years as the district nurse and midwife. The original “call the midwife”.

I hope they are of interest to your website
Many thanks
