Actually John Jeffery Roberts, Born 1861 in Portmadoc. Married to Annie in 1878. In 1881 he described himself as a 'Turner at Iron Foundry". At that time was living at 2, Smith Street, Portmadoc, with two daughters. In 1891 he was a fitter at 30 Chapel Street and by 1901 still a fitter but moved again to 51, New Street where he still was in 1911. He was definitely still working for the FR in 1923.
