William James and Alice Jane Bass lived at 40 Elm Street, Cardiff from about 1912 until 1953. William James' parents, John and Susanna (nee Norman), had both been born in Topsham, Devon but moved to Cardiff shortly after the birth of their first child. The date was probably about 1870. Alice Jane's parents, Lewin Thomas and Mary (nee Crosse) Oak, had also both been born in Devon, moving to Cardiff some time before their marriage there in 1877.
