  • Notes 
    • Marriage certificate of daughter, Elizabeth to C.W. Smith incorrectly states his name as Cran. Evan is listed as a widower on the 1891 census. TREFOR UCHAF translates to “TOP TREVOR” which refers to the Llangollen Canal, which runs through the town.The REES home would have been on the side of the canal near PEN-Y-DDOL (THE DOLLS HEAD) BRIDGE.This is an area of the canal that formed a loop, and looked like a Dolls Head.This site has gone, as it has been developed, as the permanent home of the LLANGOLLEN INTERNATIONAL EISTEDDFOD. The nearest landmark is ABBEY STREET, which runs alongside the canal, and is shown as the address in the 1861 Census., ,

      His son, David Rees and Elizabeth Maria White were witnesses at his second marriage.

      Evan was listed as son, present at the death of his mother-in-law, Gwen Jones.
