Helene Charlotte BLOFELD1

#3386, b. between 1855 and 1858, d. 30 June 1917
Last Edited=20 Mar 2005
Helene Rees née Blofeld
     Helene Charlotte BLOFELD was born between 1855 and 1858.2,3,4 She was the daughter of Robert BLOFELD.5
Helen married John Francis PEREIRA on 17 April 1872 at Cannanore, India. At the time her age was given as 14. The marriage was performed by the Chaplain John Mills WALKER, and witnessed by Wm. J. GASSE(?); G. NAVANSPALL(?); C. E. GASSE(?); Rebecca BLOFELD; and P. E. D'CRUZ.6,7,4
Her husband, John, died between 1889 and 1892.8
Helen married Thomas REES, son of David REES and Mary RICHARDS, on 19 January 1892 at 5th Field Battery RA, St. Thomas Mount, Madras, India. Thomas adopted Helen and John's son Percy.6,9,10,11,5
In the census of 31 March 1901 at Scoveston Fort, Llanstadwell, Pembrokeshire, she was listed as born in India (British Colony) the wife of Thomas REES. It was recorded that she spoke Hindu Hari? and English.12,13 Helene was in an undated photograph.14 She died in 1917 from heart failure due to rheumatism, the same night that Percy was wounded at the Somme.15,16,17 She was buried at Glyntaff Cemetery, Cemetery Road, Glyntaff, Pontypridd, Glamorganshire.18

Research Note: In the marriage certificate of his daughter Helen Charlotte to John Francis, her father is listed as Robert BLOFELD. However in the marriage certificate to Thomas REES, her father is listed as William BLOOMFIELD. This is believed to have been a mistake as Helen is mentioned in her uncle's will (Robert's brother) as being the daughter of Robert.4,5,19

Percival Thomas REES1

#3388, b. 1889, d. August 1960
Last Edited=26 Jun 2011
Percival Thomas REES (1889-1960)
     Percy was born in 1889 in the Soldiers' quarters, Bangalore, India.2,3,4,5,6
He was born Percival PEREIRA. When his father John F. PEREIRA died, and his mother remarried in 1892, his step father Thomas REES adopted him, and he was renamed to Percival Thomas REES.1
He was the son of Thomas Richards REES and Helene Charlotte BLOFELD.2 In the census of 31 March 1901 at Scoveston Fort, Llanstadwell, Pembrokeshire, he was listed as born in India (British Colony), the son of Thomas REES.4,7 Percival began military service during the First World War in the First Glamorgan Bantams. During World War I he won the Military Medal while serving with The Welch Regiment in France. He was wounded during an action in Bourbon Wood. He was listed as Sergeant P. Rees 26126 in the War Diary for February 1918 as being presented with the Military Medal for Gallantry in Bourlon Wood on November 23rd, 24th & 25th, 1917.8,9,10,11,12,6

When Percy returned to Wales after the war, there was no home for him so he lived with his uncle David REES.13 Percival was in a photograph sent 31 May 1918.14 In 1918, at the time of his marriage Percival lived 6 High Street, Cymmer, Glamorganshire. He was a Miner.15
Percival married Janet Georgina PACKER on 4 September 1918 in Parish Church, Pontypridd, Glamorganshire. The marriage was witnessed by Thos PACKER and Emma PACKER.16,17,18,15
In 1960, Percival lived at Aldergrove Road, Porth, Glamorganshire.6
In a newspaper cutting from a Porth newspaper it reads:

"For the last five generations a "thin red line" of military tradition has run through the Rees family, of Porth.
     I heard the proud story from 71-year-old Mr. Percy Rees, of Aldergrove-road, Porth, who born in soldiers' quarters in India, followed his father, grandfather and great-grand-father into the Regular Army.
     But now the family tradition may end, for his sons, Stan and Eric, after completing their National Service in the Army, returned to civilian life to pursue their careers.
     Stan, who is 22, was wounded in Korea with the King's Own Liverpool Regiment and now works at the Rest Assured factory, Pontygwaith.
     Eric, aged 25, served with the Royal Welch Fusiliers in Kingston, Jamaica, and now works at the Aero Zip factory, Treforest.
     During World War I Mr. Rees won the Military Medal while serving with The Welch Regiment in France.
     "Our battalion was heavily outnumbered and running out of ammunition, so they gave me the medal for going back to bring us some more." he told me.
     At the bloody battle of Cambrai in November, 1917, Mr. Rees was wounded during an action in Bourbon Wood, but this did not prevent him from serving with the regiment during World War II.
     I asked Mr. Rees if family tradition had ever been upset by somebody joining another branch of the Services.
     He confessed that his son Eric's twin-brother, Valentine, wanted to do his National Service in the Royal Navy.
     "But he couldn't get in and went down the mines instead." So the family tradition was saved.
     With his sons Stan, Eric and Valentine civilians, it would seem that the family tradition has little hope of maintaining their Army connections.
     "I'm pinning my hopes on my two grandsons, aged 10 and 12." said Mr. Rees.6

Percival died in August 1960. His death was registered in the Pontypridd registration district.1,19 He was buried at Glyntaff Cemetery, Cemetery Road, Glyntaff, Pontypridd, Glamorganshire.1

This book focuses on Scranton, the epicentre of Welsh America during its golden era. The author examines cultural life, the literary and musical societies, eisteddfodau and religious groups as well as other aspects of popular culture such as insobriety and sports that the leaders of the Welsh community frowned upon. He also analyses the self-image of Welsh America as reflected in its own newspapers and periodicals; the relationship of the Welsh with other ethnic groups; and, of course, the anthracite industry which in its boom years drew thousands of skilled Welsh miners across the Atlantic.3
