The Richard who was baptised in Chew Magna on 19 Feb 1858 was the third of 10 children of Richard & Mercy Vowles who married in 1853 in Chew Magna.
At least one of the other children went to Tonypandy. There are several living descendants in the Rhondda and Abertillery areas.
I believe Richard was baptised in Easton in Gordano on 18 Oct 1807,but born in Pill.
Richard was the fourth of five children of George and Mary, about whom I know no more, yet. I am slightly worried that this parental link may be wrong, as the other siblings appear to have stayed in Pill and none were farmers.
