Legg Family

To Dragongirl
My family name in early 1830's was Legg
Mary Williams who married John Legg in 1824
was born in Nantyglo 1801
There is every posibilty she was a resident of the area before
industrial revolution
The Jane Legg who was killed age 13 with seven others we believe was a daughter of John and Mary Legg
My brother and I are still waiting on the correct date of pit explosion
1836 or 1846 the Burial records would then name the parents
That poor child like thousands of others must have started in the mines age about 8, Twelve hours huddled in the dark opening doors
Six candels each burning for two hours, when she lit the last candel she knew only two hours to go, No hot bath or change of clean clothes Bed to work what a life

Nantygo Pit ExplosionDec 7th 1837

Hi Eddie
These names are all in the 1842 Royal Comission Reports of Mining
Disasters;
Listed  3  D AVIES    including Margaret 18yrs
           3  PARKES 16YRS  18YRS AND 46YRS father and two sons I suppose
           1 Jones  20yrs, 1 James Legge  13 yrs, 1 Lewis 31 yrs 1 Parry
56years.
Checked the whole 6 pages no other Legg or Legge on there at all and Margaret Davies only female, There was one disaster earlier but in  
Blaina I`ll check it out and see if I can find a death.

hi aber 42
just Google  "Welsh Coalming Disasters" and the site wil come up
the part i used was the royal Commision reports 1842

You can just put in a name and a colliery and the detail will come up It even got coroners   reports  laying blame in some case
Quite enlightening  !!
