Hi,

I'm not even sure if I'm posting in the right place. My Great great great (I think) uncle ran a brewery/ shop/garage/bar from what I can make out from the photos called the rising sun in Cwmtillery Abittillery . The family where the Chivers I wondered if anyone here could share some information or maybe remembers the Rising Sun I can't find anything online but then I could be looking in all wrong places.

I do know that The Rising Sun is no longer a brewery as my Gran was sent a photo a few years back of how it looks today.

Thank you in advance if you are able to share any stories or if you maybe know any descendants of the Chivers family

Kirsty

Wasn't the Rising Sun it was the Tillery Fountain brewery was on Crook Hill.
Joseph Chivers had the Tillery Fountain 1870 maybe earlier.

Thanks for your reply. Maybe that's why I can't find information about it  Laughing

I can upload the photos I have if it is OK with everyone that Adkins the site?

Your reply has left me wondering why it has the rising sun on the front. Was this just a name used for a local district?

1870 or earlier would be about the right time. From the research I have done I've found that Joseph married and into the area from Somerset to a Mary Edwards

Been abroad, but the brewery may have also have supplied The Rising Sun, got six landlords listed for the Rising Sun (1869-1913) but no Chivers.

Regards Tillery Fountain, between (1870-1907) Joseph, John, Rachel and Alfred Chivers.

New Bridge End Abertillery, Edward Chivers (1912-1914)

Railway Inn Abertillery, William John Chivers (1920-1947).

I am also curious about the Rising Sun an Old Family photo said this on the back. Was the Rising Sun a pub or a district?  


'David Parry's son (by previous marriage?) was brought up by Grandfather's sister Mary (who married Mr Thomas) was brought up and known as George Thomas. He married Elizabeth Evans (Uncle D J Evans sister) and their children were Mamie, Vi, George, David, Will and Jennet, all of the Rising Sun'

The Rising Sun was both a pub and cottages in the old Newtown area.
Believe the pub had closed by 1922 but the cottages were still in the electoral registers after that.
Any idea of the year on the photograph ?

Hi

Thanks for the fast reply! Going on the style of clothing I would think  1900 - 1920. The text could well be referring to something earlier than that.

The Thomas family lived at 3 Rising Sun Cottages, as there were 9 named feasible it may have been the pub. I'll send you a pm with the names.

Looking at the bottom picture "Underwood", confuses the issue.
Could be Underwood outskirts of Newport or maybe the Underwood family who had the contract for building "Grywne Fawr", believe William Underwood was the main man on the latter reservoir.
There was also a Rising Sun in Blaina connected to the Griffiths Brewery.
Not seen that many pictures of The Rising Sun Cwmtillery but the flat areas on the pictures is not helping confirm Cwmtillery, but nonetheless hope you are correct.
