Hi My granddad came from Ynysddu. I've been told he came from a big family. Is there anyone who know's of the Lockyer family my Granddad's name was Edward Henry Lockyer born 1893, I know he had a brother Thomas born 1899 and a brother Ben. If anyone has any info love to hear from you. Mary :)

Could this be him in the 1901 census:
44 Henry Street, Newport, Monmouthshire
Fanny Lockyer, Wife, Mar, 29, b Newport
Edward H Lockyer, son, 8, b Newport
Thomas Lockyer, son, 2, b Newport
James Lewis, Boarder, Wid, 75, b Usk
However, there is no father mentioned in the household as far as I can see...

This looks like his birth:
Births Mar 1893
Lockyer, Edward Henry, Registration District: Newport, M. Volume: 11a, page: 218
If you order a copy of his birth certificate (if you haven't done so already) it should state his father's name and his mother's maiden name.

Hi Jan Yes it is my grandad and I can go back with both his mother and fathers sides. I just wanted to find out more about his siblings. You see I've been told the children of Edward George Lockyer and Fanny Louisa Slade (Edward Henry Lockyer's parents) went into double figures, and I only have 4 names. Thanks for looking into it much appreciated. Mary |hug|

I can't help you with your grandfather's siblings, but I wonder if your Lockyers are related to my Lockiers? I have William Lockier and Sara (Day), both born in Somerset and moved to Newport. Their daughter Martha married Edwin Millinchip in Newport in 1865. She had a brother Edward born about 1837.
