Image with Thomas Gwilym Rees, son of David Gwilym Rees and Gwenllian Gwilym Rees. The family home was Pencaerlan, Seven Sisters, Neath Port Talbot. Two of Thomas (Tom) brothers, David Gwilym Rees a William Gwilym Rees, were sent to Patagonia in 1905 following the death of their brother Rees (Rhys) Gwilym Rees who emigrated around 1885. The purpose of the journey to the ‘Wladfa’ was to settle the estate of their brother. The two brothers remained in Patagonia and both lived out the rest of their lives there. Descendants of David Gwilym Rees continue to live in the Gaiman region today.
