Hugh Roberts, Sawyer.

Born 1857 in Portmadoc. In 1881 was living at Gwillim Terrace, Penrhyn, with his widowed mother and siblings. His mother must have been widowed twice as she had a different surname, as did one of her daughters.

He was a Labourer in Iron Works, maybe FR, maybe not. In 1891 at Tanybank, Nazareth Terrace) he was still a General Labourer but by 1901 he was a Sawyer, still at Nazareth Terrace as he was in 1911, living with his sister.

NUR records show he joined the union in 1915.
