PUGH (Wales)

Meaning/Pronunciation: Pronunciation: Pew (as in the church seat) Meaning: a shortened, modernized form of Ap Hugh, meaning son of Hugh.

Origin: Wales

Variations: Ap Hugh, obviously. Hughes as well, as an alternate modern form of the name.

Relation to me: This is my matralinial direct line—my mother's mother's mother's mother's mother's maiden name

i: Pugh, Ellen, ? – ?, Wales?; Hugh Roberts, 1 daughter known

Looking for:
Before a few months ago, this would have been entitled Griffiths (2), as I'd always had her listed as Ellen Griffiths due to what my grandmother told me. However, in looking up Ellen's daughter's death certificate, I found that she was listed as Ellen Pugh. So Pugh it is, until I learn better.

While the surname is Welsh, I can only assume that she was born in Wales, as I have no information beyond the fact that she married Hugh Roberts, and that they had one daughter, Selina Roberts nee Howells, in 1845.

I'm hoping to find more soon, but as of this moment, that's all I have on this line, so any help would be appreciated. :)

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.
