Sir John Jenkins, business man with a connection to Wales (Morriston, Swansea)
Sir John Jenkins
He was in the tin plate industry; knighted by King Edward VII in 1881 becoming Lord Glantawe in 1895.
Connection: Born Morriston, Swansea, 10th May, 1835. The son of Welsh parents, Jenkin Jenkins and Sarah Jones.
My great grandmother, Maria Hussey Jones was Lord Glantawe's first cousin.
Do you have any further information on John Jones Jenkins ancestry? Family lore has it that the First Lord Glantawe was the brother of my gg grandmother.
Following the comment by Peggy Horn that she might be related to him, I also have family stories that we are also related. It's a bit complicated but I hope interesting I have lots more if of interest,
