FENTON Somerset UK 1880s

Hello all

I am trying to find information about my grandfather John Fenton.

I have very little information about him. Family Legend has it he was born on 8 Oct 1883 in Ireland and came over to Somerset when he was only 6 mths old. He was one of 12, he had 11 sisters and he was the youngest. His father, my GGdad was a gamekeeper.

I do know that John Fenton subsequently moved to South Wales where he worked as a coal miner in Abertillery Colliery during the First World War. He subsequently worked as a coal merchant in Cardiff after meeting my grandmother Annie Smith.

I would much appreciate contact from anyone who has Fenton in their tree from the West Country, particularly Somerset in the 1880s.

Thanks and best wishes
