    1839 · The Rebecca Riots Take Place
    Age 16
    The Rebecca Riots were a group of protests in west Wales from 1839-1843. The people involved were mostly poor farmers, primarily men dressed as women. The group was called “Rebecca and her daughters”, a title believed to have come the book of Genesis. They mostly fought against the toll-gates. There is only record of one death during the riots: a young Sarah Williams had been warned that the rioters were coming, but upon refusing to leave, was killed.

    Name Meaning

    Welsh: derivative of Evan , from Efan, Ifan, medieval forms of Ieuan (from Latin Johannes, the source of English John), dating from c. 1500, with the post-medieval patronymic suffix -s. Welsh Sion was a separate borrowing of English John, and Evan (Ieuan) and Sion developed as independent names.
