Margaret Jane REES1,2

#184, b. 16 July 1887, d. 27 June 1958
Last Edited=18 Jun 2016
Margaret Jane Veasey née Rees (My maternal grandmother)
     Margaret Jane REES was also known as Maggie REES.3
Margaret Jane REES was born on 16 July 1887 in 39 Catherine Street, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire.4,5,6,7,8,2,9,10 She was the daughter of Cornelius REES and Hannah THOMAS.1,2,10,6 She was baptised on 28 September 1887 at St. David's Church, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire.2

In the census of 5 April 1891 at 20 Mill Street, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, she was listed as aged 3 born in Carmarthen, the daughter of Cornelius REES; a General Labourer, living in one room with his wife Hannah, and children Dd. John., Wm Hy., Margt., and Sarah. Cornelius and his children were recorded as speaking both Welsh and English, however his wife Hannah spoke only Welsh.6 In the census of 31 March 1901 at 13 Deri Terrace, Tylorstown, Ferndale, Glamorganshire, she was listed as aged 14 born in Carmarthen, the daughter of Cornelius REES; an underground Colliery labourer, living with his wife Hannah, and children Henry, Sarah, and "Maggie". The family all spoke Welsh and English.11

As of 29 September 1904, Margaret lived at 48 Bradford Street, Caerphilly, Glamorganshire, where her first child, Annie Mary was born.12 Margaret was the informant on the birth certificate of her daughter, however she did not register the birth until 69 days later on 7 December. She inevitably was fined for not registering the birth before the 42 days statutory limit.13,12,14 Shortly after the birth, Margaret moved to Cymmer, as at the time of registering her daughter, on 7 December 1904 her address was 80 Trebanog Road, Cymmer, Glamorganshire.12

Maggie married Herbert VEASEY, son of Sampson VEASEY and Annie White HILLIER, on 28 April 1905 in the Parish Church, Upton Noble, Somerset.1

In the census of 2 April 1911 she was listed as aged 30 born in Upton Noble, the wife of R:Head of Household. Her particulars showed that had been married 6 years, with 2 children born alive, one still living, and one dead ; a Woodman, living with his wife "Margret", and daughter Annie.15
She was the informant of the registration of the birth of her daughter Gwendoline VEASEY who was born on 4 May 1911 at Upton Noble, Somerset.16,17,18,19
On 6 June 1913 at Upton Noble, Somerset, Margaret had her daughter Leonora.20 On 24 November 1914 at Upton Noble, Somerset, Margaret had their only son Herbert Reginald.21,22

As of circa 1919, the family moved to West Woodlands, Longleat, Frome, Somerset they leased the farm "Woodlands". When the owner died they had to leave the farm. Herbert's sister Leonora, and brother-in-law Sidney COLE owned a shop in Manchester and loaned them some money to set up a haberdashery, or draper shop in Carmarthen.20,23 On 25 July 1924 at 5 Cambrian Place, Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, Margaret had their youngest daughter Kathleen Hilda.24,25


As a result of the 1924 "Big Strike", and the miners remaining on strike for a further six months, they lost everything and closed the shop and left Carmarthen. Initially Herbert found a job as a farm labourer in Chetnole, Dorset however this did not work out as he wanted to be his own boss. He then became self-employed.26

In 1927 Margaret and Herbert moved to The Green, Stoford, Yeovil, Somerset. The house still remains and is called "Little Charters". The farm at the corner of the green was owned by Mr Fry. At the left-hand corner of the row of houses was a small general store. The house still remains, however the shop window has been bricked up.27


In Stoford village, there is a small stream with a very picturesque bridge that leads to the adjoining village of Clifton Maybank. My mother recalls that she would ice skate on the stream when it was frozen. One day at the top of hill in Clifton Maybank an airship landed. There was great excitement in the village and everyone rushed up to see it.27 The Wesleyan Methodist chapel where they worshipped three times on a Sunday is still standing but no longer used. My mother recalls that they would go to Weymouth on the annual Sunday School outing. Her mother would dress her in finery, complete with matching shoes.27 Kathleen, her daughter, remembers that they had a big radio and they would sit round and listen to it. One day the local builder's daughter Betty Guppy had birthday wishes read out on the Ovaltinees show and my mother heard it, and the next day Betty, who was in her class at school, was held in great awe by all the children at the school.27
From 1940 to 1958, Herbert leased Vagg Wood in Chilthorne Domer, and he returned to his Woodman and Hurdlemaker craft, handed down from his forefathers, spanning more than 130 years. Vagg Wood was owned by a farmer,Tommy Marsh, who lived at Lower Vagg Farm. The farmer was also a Justice of the Peace, and later signed the marriage licence request for Kathleen Veasey when she married Reginald Euridge.28,29,30,31

From 1941, Margaret and Herbert lived at 20 Barnet Close, Yeovil, Somerset. During the war, their youngest daughter Kay with her young family lived with them whilst her husband Red was serving in the Royal Marines.32 Mervyn, their grandson, remembers that between 1943 and 1945, during the war, in the evenings he had to go to his grandparents to shelter from the nearby bombing at Houndscombe Camp. His grandfather had dug a ditch in the backgarden, and then covered it with wood and corrugated iron to protect it from the weather. When there was an air raid they would all clamber into the ditch. The ditch is still there today. Mervyn also recalls one day when they were making their way up from Coronation Avenue to Barnet Close, there was an air raid and the bombs came very close. The air raid warden made them jump over the hedge. Unfortunately there was a pile of manure and both him and his brother Harold were covered in manure. Grandma was furious and they had to be cleaned off before they were allowed in the house. He also remembers that his grandfather rode around in a pony and cart, always laden up with logs.33

Between 1950 and 1958 they lived in Chilthorne Domer in a cottage at the top of the hill. The cottage is no longer standing, and a new bungalow is built in it's place. After they left the cottage they moved to 50 Little Sammons, Chilthorne Domer.32 Marie, their granddaughter, remembers that on 6 February 1952, the day King George V died, she was visiting her grandparents and cutting the hedge with her grandfather. The large battery-powered radio boomed out three times and they announced "The King is dead, the King is dead".34
Margaret died on 27 June 1958 in 50 Little Sammons, Chilthorne Domer, Somerset, at the age of 70. The cause of death was:
a) Uraemia;
b) Chronic Interstitial Nephritis and
c) Old Age.
In layman terms this means kidney failure.35,36

Margaret was buried on 1 July 1958 in the Parish Church of St. Mary, Chilthorne Domer, Somerset.37
Her death was announced in the The Western Gazette, Yeovil, Somerset on 4 July 1958, it read:
Wife of Retired Coalminer - Late Mrs. H. Veasey of Chilthorne Domer
The funeral took place at Chilthorne Domer on Tuesday of Mrs. Margaret Veasey, Little Sammons, Chilthorne Domer who died aged 72.
Mrs Veasey, who had lived at Chilthorne for the past eight years, was the wife of Mrs. Herbert Veasey, a retired coalminer. For 15 years the couple lived at Barnet's Close, Yeovil, where they moved from Stoford. There are four daughters and one son.
A service at Chilthorne Domer Parish Church was conducted by the Rector (Rev. D.R. McKinnon), and Mrs Collins was organist. Internment followed in the churchyard.
Family mourners were: Mr. H. Veasey (husband), Mrs N. Adams (also representing Mr. J. Adams), Mrs K. Eurridge (also representing Sergt. R. Eurridge), Mrs. M. Jukes (also representing Mr. K. Jukes), Mr. and Mrs. C. Chant (sons-in-law and daughters). Mr and Mrs R. Veasey (son and daughter-in-law), Mr W. Moon (stepson), Mr M.C. Chant, Miss I. Adams (grandchildren).
Others present included: Mrs B.M. Stirling, Mrs N. Orouk, Mrs W. Shutler, Mrs H.L. Haylock (friends).

Floral Tributes
Floral tributes were received from: Her loving husband and son, Bert and Bill; Kay, Reg and children; Gwen, Cecil and Stan; Ken and Margaret; Eddie; All the little grandchildren at Darlston, Staffs; Jim, Nora and Rodney; Grandson Reg, Barbara and Robert; All the little grandchildren at Dawlish Warren; Stuart Maidment; Gwen and Jean; Mr and Mrs Whitlock and family; Carpenters Arms; All at Little Sammons Estate.

Mr. Veasey and family thank all friends and neighbours for their expressions of sympathy and floral tributes. Will they please accept this, the only intimation.
Funeral arrangements were by Messrs. G.H. Cook & Son, Bond Street, Yeovil.37
Kathleen, her youngest daughter, describes her mother as beautiful, always smartly dressed, and adored by her husband. She was extremely houseproud and very hardworking. However, she was devoutly religious, and saw Kay's birth as the "Wrath of God", as it was late in her life after her older children had grown up married and left home, and she subsequently took solace in drink.32 Marie, her granddaughter, recalls that she often stayed with her grandmother and on Saturday nights they would go to the "Carpenters Arms" at the bottom of Vagg Lane. She would sit out in the beer garden and eat crisps and drink "pop", and wait for her grandmother. Later she would help her grandfather put her grandmother to bed. On one occasion granddad was furious as they found that grandmother had hidden some gin in her stone hotwater bottle.34

Research Note: In the 1911 census it implies that they had another child, who had died in infancy. When searching the records, two infants were found that could possibly be this child - Frank Victor G. Veasey, or Edna Veasey, both died in Merthyr Tydfil.38,39,40

Herbert VEASEY1

#185, b. 2 February 1881, d. 1968
Last Edited=8 Jul 2015
Herbert Veasey (My Maternal Grandfather)
     Herbert's nickname was Bert.2
Herbert VEASEY was born on 2 February 1881 in Upton Noble, Somerset.3,4 He was the son of Sampson VEASEY and Annie White HILLIER.5,1
In the census of 3 April 1881 at High Street, Upton Noble, Somerset, he was listed as aged 2 months born in Upton Noble, the son of Sampson VEASY.6
In the census of 5 April 1891 at Wanstrow Hill Farm, Wanstrow, Somerset, he was listed as aged 10 born in Upton Noble, the son of Sampson VEASEY.7

He was listed in the census of 31 March 1901 at 67 Trebanog, Cymmer, Glamorganshire, boarding with Wyndham Davies. Indexed under the name of Peasey, born in Batcombe, Somerset.8
In the 1901 census, Herbert's occupation was given as an underground colliery labourer. Later in 1924, he was recorded as a Coal Hewer. A coal hewer was, basically, a collier who specialized in taking coal from the coal-face. In a lot of documents he would have been classed as a collier and in others a miner. To get to this level he would have served a form of apprenticeship by working as a "boy" under the guidance of an experienced collier for anything between 3 and 7 years.

In 1904 his future wife, Margaret Rees, whose father was also a Miner, was living in 80 Trebanog Road, Cymmer in the Rhondda Valley, so it is likely that they met whilst he was working and living there.9,10,11,8


Herbert married Maggie REES, daughter of Cornelius REES and Hannah THOMAS, on 28 April 1905 in the Parish Church, Upton Noble, Somerset. He was listed as a Labourer residing at Upton Noble.5

In the census of 2 April 1911 Herbert was listed as the Head of Household; a Woodman, living with his wife "Margret", and daughter Annie.12
Herbert was a Labourer, Woodman at the time of the birth of his first daughter Gwen on 4 May 1911 at Upton Noble, Somerset.13
On 6 June 1913 at Upton Noble, Somerset, Herbert had his daughter Leonora.14 On 24 November 1914 at Upton Noble, Somerset, Herbert his only son Herbert Reginald, was born.15,16 And similarily, on 24 November 1914, at the time of the birth of his son Herbert he was; a Labourer, Woodman.15

As of circa 1919, the family moved to West Woodlands, Longleat, Frome, Somerset they leased the farm "Woodlands". When the owner died they had to leave the farm. Herbert's sister Leonora, and brother-in-law Sidney COLE owned a shop in Manchester and loaned them some money to set up a haberdashery, or draper shop in Carmarthen.14,17
Herbert VEASEY was, at the time of the birth of his daughter Kathleen, a Coal Hewer on 25 July 1924 at Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire.18


As a result of the 1924 "Big Strike", and the miners remaining on strike for a further six months, they lost everything and closed the shop and left Carmarthen. Initially Herbert found a job as a farm labourer in Chetnole, Dorset however this did not work out as he wanted to be his own boss. He then became self-employed.10

In 1927 Herbert and Margaret moved to The Green, Stoford, Yeovil, Somerset. The house still remains and is called "Little Charters". The farm at the corner of the green was owned by Mr Fry. At the left-hand corner of the row of houses was a small general store. The house still remains, however the shop window has been bricked up.19 In 1930, at the time of the marriage of his daughter Gwen, Herbert was a Farmer.20
Herbert witnessed the marriage of his daughter Cecil Henry CHANT and Gwendoline VESEY on 22 March 1930 at Parish Church, Leigh, Dorset.21,22,23,20,24,25
From 1940 to 1958, Herbert leased Vagg Wood in Chilthorne Domer, and he returned to his Woodman and Hurdlemaker craft, handed down from his forefathers, spanning more than 130 years. Vagg Wood was owned by a farmer,Tommy Marsh, who lived at Lower Vagg Farm. The farmer was also a Justice of the Peace, and later signed the marriage licence request for Kathleen Veasey when she married Reginald Euridge.26,27,28,29

From 1941, Herbert and Margaret lived at 20 Barnet Close, Yeovil, Somerset. During the war, their youngest daughter Kay with her young family lived with them whilst her husband Red was serving in the Royal Marines.30 Mervyn, their grandson, remembers that between 1943 and 1945, during the war, in the evenings he had to go to his grandparents to shelter from the nearby bombing at Houndscombe Camp. His grandfather had dug a ditch in the backgarden, and then covered it with wood and corrugated iron to protect it from the weather. When there was an air raid they would all clamber into the ditch. The ditch is still there today. Mervyn also recalls one day when they were making their way up from Coronation Avenue to Barnet Close, there was an air raid and the bombs came very close. The air raid warden made them jump over the hedge. Unfortunately there was a pile of manure and both him and his brother Harold were covered in manure. Grandma was furious and they had to be cleaned off before they were allowed in the house. He also remembers that his grandfather rode around in a pony and cart, always laden up with logs.31

Between 1950 and 1958 they lived in Chilthorne Domer in a cottage at the top of the hill. The cottage is no longer standing, and a new bungalow is built in it's place. After they left the cottage they moved to 50 Little Sammons, Chilthorne Domer.30 Marie, their granddaughter, remembers that on 6 February 1952, the day King George V died, she was visiting her grandparents and cutting the hedge with her grandfather. The large battery-powered radio boomed out three times and they announced "The King is dead, the King is dead".32 After the death of his wife, in June 1958, Herbert moved to live with his youngest daughter Kay, and son-in-law Red. at Briar Hill, Dawlish Warren, Devon.33,34,35


When Herbert's grandchildren, Derek and Irena, married they went to Upton Noble for an evening celebration. Herbert met up with old friends and he did a clog dance with them.36 Herbert died in 1968 aged 86, and was cremated in Taunton, Somerset.37,36



Research Note: In the 1911 census it implies that they had another child, who had died in infancy. When searching the records, two infants were found that could possibly be this child - Frank Victor G. Veasey, or Edna Veasey, both died in Merthyr Tydfil.38,39,40
