Administrative/Biographical history: Mrs Hester Waters (d 1794), possibly a member of the Waters family of Penhow (Monmouthshire) appears to have lived at Bath, Somerset, since at least 1775. Edward Evans (fl. 1794-1802), of Energlyn Mill, Caerphilly, Glamorgan, a descendant of the Waters family, was the executor of her will. Members of the Evans family appear to have moved to Cardiff, Glamorgan, during the second half of the 19th century, and William Evans (1853-1915) and George Julian Evans (b. 1879) worked as marine engineers.
