There was a Morgan Evans, Surgeon in the London Hospital reconds Tom. This is the only Evans I found who could be the Dr. Evans mentioned in Stephensons statement.

Thanks Debs.

Thanks for the clarification, Rob. The 'Morgan' thing was throwing me off. You're a gentleman and a scholar.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott

Hi Rob and dens
I saw the dairyman you mentioned but apart from the age difference I think this is unlikely that in 3 years he would have gone from a surgeon to a dairyman
I will keep looking!

Hi Chris, yeah, I mentioned him to Rob before I knew that the Morgan Evans he had found was a surgeon. I was interested in the Morgan Davies Evans chemist in the West end too before Rob sent me the full details of age and occupation.
BTW re the medical student lodger at Turner St, there are 2 Francis Jackson's in the 1913 medical register, one Francis Seymour and one Francis william, I see Francis as well.

The London Hospital entry showed Morgan Evans aged 27, so he would have been born in 1861 or thereabouts. Going back to the previous census (when Evans would presumably still be in training) I could find no man of this name in the England census of appropriate age who had a medical connection.
However, his name suggests strongly a Welsh origin so I searched the 1881 Welsh census for a Morgan Evans born 1861 (+ or - 1 year) and there were 9 results. 8 of these were manual labourers (blacksmith, colliers etc.) but the one below caught my eye:

Faldy, Llandegley, Radnorshire
Head: John Samuel M Evans aged 62 born Tregaron - Surgeon and farmer of 75 acres
Wife: Caroline Evans aged 58 born Llanfihangel
Children: Elizabeth C Jackson (Married) aged 29
Richard T Evans aged 23 - Farmer's son
John Morgan Evans aged 19 - Medical Student
Hannah Ellen Evans aged 17
All born in Llanfihangel
Grandsons:
John Martin M Evans aged 7 born Llandegley
Blanche E Jackson aged 2 born Liverpool

The fact that the married daughter's name is Jackson, the same as the family at 89 Turner Street where Morgan Evans lodged, may be significant.

Chris,

I believe that John Morgan Evans is the right man. I think he returned to Wales, so you probably won't find him on the London census from 1891 onwards.

I believe John Evans was the name of Dr. Morgan Davies' correspondent.

Yours truly,

Tom Wescott
