About Reuben Coles

John James married Mary Jane and their first son was born 10 weeks later. Five weeks after the birth John James sailed alone to Australia and then to New Zealand to join his brother Thomas and they both went prospecting for gold. John James returned to England (and to his wife) in 1902 and after a spell in Weston, moved to Barry in South Wales (10 miles across the Bristol Channel), where they continued their family. They moved for two reasons. Mary Jane has family in South Wales and she was working for the Bishop of Llandaff, Cardiff.
