Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Rob-ertz Meaning: Son of Robert.

Origin: Roberts is a Welsh patronymic name used for the children of men named Robert. One of the more common Welsh surnames of this type.

Variations: None that I'm immediately aware of, and definitely not in this family.

Relation to me: This is my mother's mother's mother's mother's maiden name.

i: Roberts, Selina, 1845 – 1933, Dyffryn, Monmothshire, Wales; Gabriel Howells, 4 daughters, 2 sons

ii: Roberts, Hugh, ? - ?, Wales?; Ellen Pugh, 1 known daughter

Looking for:
In looking up Selina last week, I discovered that her mother, whose maiden name I had always listed as Griffiths on my family tree, is listed on her death record as Ellen Pugh. So I'm going with that until I find other information. Of Ellen and Hugh, I know absolutely nothing but their names, nor do I have any clue about how many children they might have had.

As this is my matrilineal line, it holds a great deal of interest for me, and I'd love to get further back with these three.

About this blog

This blog is maintained by two sisters who have had a life long interest in geneology.
Mika writes here mostly about our family (Hansen, Hillinger, Bordewick, Park, etc), and her search for more information.
Shannon mostly uses this space as a place to make the many stories written about and by her husband's family (Holly, Walker, Walpole, etc) available to the rest of the family, present and future.

Our blog is named Oh Spusch! mostly because Shannon is bad at naming things. The first post I put up includes a story about the time Walker's great grandfather took his whole family out to see a play and the littlest kept saying "Oh! Spusch!" No one ever figured out what she meant by that.
