DOes anyone know how I can find out if my 3x Great Granddad was in the Police or not?
There's a myth in the family that he was in the Police in Wales, 1834-1868 but when he came over to Stockton-On-Tees, Middlesbrough he was no longer allowed due to not speaking English. I'd be ever so thankful if anyone can help me find out the truth. His name was Evan Thomas from Llantrisant.
There's also a story that a Thomas relative caught a Phillips relative shoving a dead body into a bin. (Evan's daughter Emily married George Phillips) I do have a picture of Evan's Grandson in a Police/Army uniform during WW2, myth or truth?
Please, please say someone can help me.
