    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]

    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.

    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.
