In the 1841 Wales Survey, Ann Evans , Mary Evans and Margaret Evans the three people we have confirmation in the one family and for which we have birth dates for Mary and Margaret were living in Llanwonno, Glamorgan, Wales and with the remainder of the family. The name Rees for one of the boys seems significant as Mary's first child was not a Williams but Ester Ann Rees born when her husband John Williams was only a boy and was clearly not his.
"Mary, b. 1 March 1837. Lived in Treorci. Son, John, and two daughters, one of whom m. Rees, milkman (their son was Dai Rees, Treorci, d. February 1963)"*
