    Interior St. Peter's Catholic Church, Cardiff, Wales, ca. 1870
    John Ryan and Amelia Thomas were married here Aug 26, 1875.

    This is the Church in which John and Amelia were married in 1875. It is the oldest Catholic Church in Cardiff and situated on St Peter's Road, Roath, Cardiff. Aunt Mary told me that she thought that no one from either family attended the service as Amelia was Wesleyan Methodist and she was marrying into the Roman Catholic faith. Amelia (Thomas) is listed as living in 44 Parade Cardiff - this is one block away from St Peter's Church. [L. Ryan 12/22/2009]

    Nick Bradley owns the attached photo which was passed on from his mother Millie Ryan Bradley. No names on the back, but our collective best guess is that this is a photo of the young Ryan couple John Patrick and Amelia sometime in the 1880s. The pose is typically Victorian - no smiles and very serious poses in Sunday best clothes. [L. Ryan 11/19/2009]
    The photo has been professionally restored. Aunt Mary Ryan Taylor, who never met them of course, says that there are remarkable family resemblances. She also thought this photo may well be a wedding photo which would date it at 1875. The young couple are certainly in their finest clothes. If it is a wedding photo Amelia would be 25 and John Patrick 23. [L. Ryan 11/23/2010]

    Llandough Church ~ St. Dochdwy
    Reading through Aunt Mary's History today I noticed that we do not have a photo of Llandough Church ~ St. Dochdwy, where my grandparents Edward Ryan and Louisa Ann Dibble were married in 1905. It's a small country church on the outskirts of Penarth and would have been the parish church for Louisa. Eddie's younger brother John Ryan was Best Man.
    Albert Road School, Penarth, Wales, UK
    Albert Road School, Penarth, Wales, UK
    Albert Road School which is just around the corner from 5 Salop Place home to the orphaned Ryan children and their local school. Aunt Mary's 'Brief History' mentions that they attended this school. Actually, I recall a lane at the back of the school which led into Salop Place. Stephen and I were pupils there - what a shame I had no idea then that my grandfather and great aunts and uncle also attended back in the 1900s. [L. Ryan 4/1/2010]

    Aunt Mary has confirmed that:
    * The orphaned Ryan children attended this school: Catherine, Jane, Ellen, Eddie and Jack Ryan
    * Eddie Ryan's children attended - Milly, George, Sidney and Mary Ryan
    * Jack Ryan's children attended - John, Tom, Glyn, Peter, Eileen, Jim, Colleen and Joe Ryan
    * Sid Ryan's children attended - Les and Stephen

    Two more pics for the site - this time the small terraced home in Dock Street Cogan, Penarth where John and Amelia Ryan set up home in 1875 - he was 22 and she was 24. Eight children were born to them - two died young; Sarah in 1879 and Samuel in 1888 - it is highly likely that Amelia never recovered from the birth and early death of Samuel (registered death as 0 months old) - she died within six months of Samuel's birth. Then tragically John died two years later from an accident at work resulting in a tetanus infection. Six Ryan children were orphaned.
    5 Salop Place, Penarth, Wales, UK
    5 Salop Place, Penarth, Wales, UK
    Thomas family home to orphaned Ryan children. Samuel and Jane Thomas were the Ryan children's maternal grandparents. The couple took in the children after the death of their father, John Patrick in 1890 from a tetanus wound sustained at work in Penarth Docks. The childrens' mother, Amelia had died just over a year before.

    The entrance to Alexandra Park from Beach Road, Penarth. Photo ca 1900s - 1910s - a park that must have been well known to all residents in Penarth. Alexandra Park, Penarth is a well-preserved Edwardian urban public park. It is in an attractive location overlooking the Bristol Channel, retaining its layout and many of its original features. The park was laid out quickly between 1901 and 1902.

    Windsor Road, Penarth ca 1908 - the principal road running from Cogan (where our 'Founding Family' of Ryans lived) to Penarth. The main shops were and are located here. The road continues as Windsor Terrace and then into Beach Road which leads to the Esplanade.
    Penarth Docks
    Penarth Docks
    Penarth Docks at the height of its importance ca. 1900. John Patrick Ryan (1852-90) worked there as a shipwright and it was there that he probably sustained the injury that led to tetanus resulting from a deep cut or wound which led to his early death at the age of 38. The six Ryan children were orphaned.
