    The Ebbw Vale one sounds like my grandfather, Bethcar Street or Bethcar Terrace Ebbw Vale? What do you have please? I know my father John Oswald (Jack) Howells was born in Ebbw Vale in 1895.
    On the 1891 Census Heywood was living at Rhydllani Farm outside Abergavenny. In the 1901 Census he is living at Twyncynhordy near Brynmawr which is only a couple of miles from Ebbw Vale and where I was born.

    Yes, sorry, Bethcar-terrace.

    I always go to Welsh Newspapers Online for my research in Wales or on Welsh emigrants, especially for an uncommon name or address. I thought it might be worth a try for yor grandfather and it does have a few results for Heywood Howells http://newspapers.library.wales/sear...ood+howells%22 It might be worth trying for some of the other names and addresses too.

    So it looked like Heywood was bankrupt the year my father was born and one article refers to illness? Hard times. He lived until the 1940's I think. It does answer one question and that is that he had his own business. Later on he must have done reasonably well because I think he built the bungalow I was born in.
    I will try and search further thank you for that.
