Rosa griffiths formely robbins(nee rabens)

Postby minnie1703 » Sun Nov 30, 2008 2:43 am

this is so frustrating
my great great grandmother was born rosa rabens on 15 Oct 1888 in [link=]Llangafelach, Glamorgan, Wales, UK(i think)[/link]. her father was a sailor called George Rabens(c1861). Rosa married in [b][link=]The Parish Church of St.Mark Swansea, Glamorgan, Wales on the 1st of november 1905.[/link][/b]She married frederick Samuel Robbins and had 4 children called Eunice Rosina robbins(1907), Jack robbins(1908), Margaret robbins(1909) and Violet Robbins(1913)Her husband Frederick died at the battle of Jutland in 1916.All Rosas children went to stay with Fredericks brother Thomas Robbins and his wife Mary Robbins (nee Muchmore).
She married Joseph Daniel Griffiths in [b][link=]Swansea, Glamorgan, Wales[/link][/b] in June 1918.They lived at [b][link=]15, Villier St., Hafod,Swansea[/link][/b].(this may be Nilliers street). They went on to have 3 children Gwynneth M Griffiths(1919), Cyril joseph griffiths(1921) and Rosalie Griffiths(1923). I cant seem to find any information on her death, parents or siblings.
Above i have her birthdate 15 oct 1888 although im unsure of this. i know she was deffinately born in 1888, some relatives say she may have had an irish connection???
Any information on Rosa Griffiths would be welcome, anything that doesnt seem of value may bewhat i need.
Information on her first marriage and children, second marriage and children, parents, siblings or anything ealse is welcome..

Hello Mary,
It maybe that her name has been entered incorrectly into the registers. There is an entry for a Rosa ROBINS in Oct-Dec 1888 Swansea 11a 719, which could be her, and worth a try if you cannot find it anywhere else, you can put a check on it when you order it stating that she should have the father as George.
