Jenkin was the son of David and Ann Evans of Priory House, Llanon. He serves as Bosun [Boatswain and Lamps] on the S.S. Constantia, a Mercantile Marine cargo steamer out of London. On May 8, 1918, while carrying coal from Newcastle to Rouen, the Constantia was torpedoed by the German sub UB-21, sinking off South Cheek, Robin Hood's Bay. Three souls were lost, including Jenkins. He was 48 years old. His body was brought ashore and sent home for burial. He is also commemorated at the Llanon Memorial Hall.
