Working down the pits by the time he was 10, was an experience which undoubtedly influenced the later life of William 'Mabon Abraham. He became a trade union leader and President of the South Wales Miners' Federation and, in 1885, MP for the Rhondda, which he represented until 1920.
He held the Rhondda seat until its abolition at the 1918 general election, when he was elected for the new Rhondda West constituency. He resigned his seat in 1920 and died two years later aged 79.
