Evan James, musician with a connection to Wales (Pontypridd)
Evan JamesAlong with his son James wrote the words of the Welsh National Anthem 'Hen Wlad fy Nhadau'.
Connection: From Pontypridd.
Owned an Inn in Bedwellty, Monmouthshire but was a textile merchant by trade.
We are related to Evan James and James James on mothers side, our grandmothers family are from Pontypridd.
I am trying to prove a family story that my grandmother Lilian Beavan was a descendant of Evan James. Can anyone help?
