Title: Any descendants of Tobias Codd out there?

Tobias's son William was my grandfather - he was born at Rickeston Mill in 1882. He had an elder brother called James (1880) and 3 younger sisters called Sarah (1883) Martha (1885) and Hannah (1887).

Tobias's first wife, Mary died in 1892 and he married his second wife, Jane John in 1893. Tobias died in 1925.

My grandfather moved to the Aberdare area when he was about 17 to work in the mines and eventually settled down in Penrhiwceiber.

Tobias was the son of Tobias Codd and Lettice Hughes and the grandson of Tobias Codd and Elizabeth Moore.

All I know that when I was in school in the sixties we had a Miss Codd who was the school secretary.

I live in Pembroke Dock.

Hello Mal. I was interested to see that your ancestor was born at Rickeston Mill as I live about 2 miles away at Herbrandston and have been doing some research on the local area.I see that in 1881 Tobias Codd senior aged 65 was at Rickeston Mill with wife Letitia,and also son Tobias aged 23 with wife Mary and son James age 1.For some reason son William b.1882 was at Havens Head,Milford Haven in 1891 with his uncle James Morgan,farmer.Funnily enough I am currently in the process of buying a cottage there!There are only a handful of cottages at Havens Head most of which would have been there then but as is common with census returns the exact address is not given.Rather strangely James Morgan by then widowed is in 1901 at 1 Marion St.Aberdare,occupation farm labourer,with nephew William Codd age 19,coal miner hewer.He is still single.10 years later a William Codd age 30 born Pembroke Dock is at 48 Bailey St. Deri (which I think is near New Tredegar).He is a boarder,is married although his wife is not with him there and he is a colliery hewer.This does not all seem to fit but you probably have more info on your grandfather which makes sense of it.His brother James was still at Rickeston Mill at this time,with his parents age 34,unmarried described as farm help.Sister Sarah Ann may have married John Henry Davies Haverfordwest,1892.Sister Martha may have married William Davies,Haverfordwest 1899.Sister Hannah may have married Thomas David Morris or someone else ,Haverfordwest,1910.

It is strange to see that Rickeston Mill is now a residential nursing home run by Indians - I wonder what grancha would have said (probably would have laughed). He married his first wife - Mary Ann Evans in 1904 and in the 1911 census was in Morris Avenue Penrhiwceiber with 4 children. She died in the flu epidemic of 1918 and he married my grandmother - Florence Reynolds of Rosemarket - in 1920. My dad was born in Penrhiwceiber in 1922.

James Morgan was not his uncle - I noticed from the census form of 1871 that Mary Jenkins (Tobias's future wife and grancha's mother) was a servant of James and Martha Morgan at St Botolph's Lodge. It must have been romantic then walking through the fields to see one another - now there is one big oil refinery in the way. When James's wife, Martha and grancha's mother, Mary died they moved to Aberdare to work in the mines - even though grancha - being the eldest son of sound mind (James was a bit simple) - would have inherited the farm.

There was a deal made with the John family (one of grancha's sisters) that if my grandfather gave up his claim to the land that they would bring up his youngest daughter (only a few months old) and give most of the money from the sale of the land to her - but I think they kept the money themsleves.  I think it was Sarah Codd who married a John and one of the John son's married my aunt (his second cousin)

I was in Pembroke about 4 years ago - The Old Kings Arms Hotel - March 2007 - and it was lovely riding in the Puffin buses through the narrow country lanes - if ever I win the lottery I would return to my roots - to Pembroke. Very unusual accent they have in South Pembrokeshire - half Somerset and half Irish to my ears.

 Martha (Patty) Codd was my grandmother.   She married Thomas John from Herbrandston and they had 8 children.  They moved to Rickeston Mill when Tobias died so that she could take care of her brother Jimmy who was handicapped.   The Codd family can be traced back to Tobias Codd,a farmer in Nolton Pembs who died in 1735.  That's as far as I've got as yet.  I can remember an Emrys and Mary from Penrhiwceiber and have a photo of them?  Any help?  I think I must be your second cousin?  Cheers!  Patty also brought up the daughter of her brother William.  She was called Beatrice.

Thanks for replying -

My father took my mother down to Rickeston Mill soon after they were married - the first memory she had of Auntie Patty was seeing her come round the corner wringing a chicken's neck. They went down on the milk train from London to Milford (via Cardiff travelling through the night) - started to walk from Milford Haven train station but on the way to the farm a man with a hay cart told them to hop on and took them to Rickeston Mill.

I never understood why my grandfather left Pembroke to work down the mines in Glamorgan - perhaps he didn't get on with his father Tobias. He lived for a while with James Morgan in Aberdare as his nephew - but he wasn't really his uncle - Grancha's mother was a servant at James's home in St. Botolph's Lodge. Grancha named his eldest son Benjamin James Codd.

I've no idea who Emrys was - my grandfather's name was William. He married twice. The 2nd Mrs Codd - my grandmother - was Florence Reynolds from Rosemarket. They had 3 sons together. There were 8 children by the 1st marriage.

I tried finding Thomas and Martha John on the 1911 census but no luck - would you know the names of their eldest children - There was a Minnie, Alfred and Joseph - may be their children - but they were born AFTER 1911. Also I cannot see Sarah Codd getting married in Pembrokeshire. Hannah Codd seems to have married twice - 1st to John Morgan(s) and then to William Griffiths.

So Tobias mrd Lettice Hughes in 1st Qtr of 1841 and died in 2nd Qtr of 1881 aged 65 yrs. It is interesting to note that a Tobias Codd was baptised at Marloes in 1841 and at St Brides in 1882.
I note that Tobias Codde was in fact baptised at St Ishmaels in 1814 and probably related to Anne Codde(1823) and John Codde(1816).
Tobias Codd had mrd Elizabeth Moor at Marloes in 1799, and probably related to John Codd who had mrd Mary Howell at Nolton in the same year.
Of all the Codd wills the most interesting must be Tobias of 1735 on the NLoW website at ;
http://cat.llgc.org.uk/cgi-bin/gw/chameleon?skin=profeb&lng=en

Of all the interesting Codd entries on my Military History headstone database related to Pembrokeshire, the most interesting to me must be Martha Elizabeth Codd of Milford who mrd Aircraftsman 1st Class Arthur Robert Jones in 1933 probably at Hubbeston. Arthur died on the 21st Dec 1947, but not before having served with the RAF for the whole of W.W. 2 he was demobbed in Dec 1945, Arthur and his wife receiving no assistance with accommodation on his de-mob, took matters into their own hands and became one of Milfords 1st Squatters in early 1946 when he moved into a former Nissen Hut in Haken, Hut 14 Pioneer Camp Hakin Milford.
Perhaps the more poignant is Able Seaman Ernest Warald Newlands Codd son of  Ernest and Mary L. Codd and husband of Olwen Lilian Rose Codd of Milford, he was serving on HMS Ardent which was sunk 08 June 1940. Initially Olwen had been informed that her husband was in fact a P.O.W. before being informed of his demise, he is remembered on the Plymouth Memorial Panel 37 Col 2. Olwen was the daughter of Mr & Mrs Ledner of 52 Shakespeare Ave Milford.
 
Trust the above is of some interest to your research.

Tobias must have had a few bob to have had such a will - it reminded me a bit of the Doomsday Book. Not sure where he lies in the family tree - possibly a grandfather of the Tobias Codd who married Elizabeth Moore. I visited Nolton a few years ago - it had a kind of Eerie beauty - a Haven at the end of the world.

The Codds certainly get around - I must admit the militant action of the squatters made me very proud indeed of the name Codd. My grandfather, William, was banned from working for the mine owners because he wanted a fair deal for the miners - so the miners employed him out of their own wages to be a weight checker - to sit next to the weight checker employed by the mine owners - and therefore guarantee that the miners were paid fairly for the amount of coal they managed to bring above ground - long may the Codd spirit continue!

Sorry for the delay. Re family of Pattie and Tommy John of Rickeston Mill. They were Jenny(Sarah Jane) who married Walter Morris (3 children); Mary m David Morgan(2ch); Bob m Winnie Howells(9ch); Bertie m Irene Mathias?(1ch); Minnie m 1. Sid Lloyd 2 Jimmy Hicks (no ch); Alfie m Peggy(margaret) Edwards(1ch); Phyllis m Fred Britton(no ch) and Joe m Patsy(Martha) ? (4ch). Aunty Beats died in Sept 2010 and her son Alan in Feb 2010. Uncle Sid John died in the 90s but their daughter * is alive and well in Milford. We don't know why Willie left, as it's logical he would have inherited the Mill. Pattie's sister Sarah married Richard(Dick) James .He was killed at the battle of Jutland.They had 2 sons, Arthur and Edward(Teddy). Hoping I've got things correct.

Thanks for the information - the mists are starting to clear now - although it was a shock to hear about Auntie Beatie and Alan (he was next in age up from me). Would you know roughly in what year Sarah & Martha married - or the birth year of their eldest child. I'm in the process of trying out all kinds of spellings to find them in the census and birth, marriage & deaths. My grandfather - William - could speak fluent Welsh - which surprises me for South Pembrokeshire. Did any of the sisters speak Welsh to your knowledge

Auntie Winnie Morgans 10 (half sister), Aunty Vano 13 (Myfanwy), Auntie Iris 10
Uncle (Gilbert) Ivor 4, Uncle Maldwyn 2 and my dad William John 6 on the front steps of their home in Penrhiwceiber 1928. All since passed away.

  Jenny was born in 1906 and Mary in 1909.   There was no Welsh in the family as far as I know.  I'll follow up on the  marraige dates query.

Hello Mal
I have been looking into the upbringing of your grandad William Codd.He was with the Morgans at HavensHead,Milford Haven at the age of 9. I wonder when he went to live with them and why? Martha Morgan was from Llanrhian,near Mathry in North Pembrokeshire a Welsh speaking area so would likely have been a Welsh speaker.I believe her maiden name was John but probably not related to the other Johns who were from the Walton West area.Mary Jenkins who married Tobias Codd and was living with the Morgans at St.Botolphs Lodge was also from Llanrhian.William Morgan was from Hayscastle which is roughly on the so called Landsker line dividing Welsh speaking N Pembs with English speaking S.Pembs.He was working on a farm at Llanwnda near Fishguard.He may have been brought up to speak Welsh or picked it up.The Morgans did not seem to have any children of their own so this might explain their willingness to have an adopted son.Martha Jenkins was probably a servant at St.Botolphs House.Perhaps the person occupying the Lodge had to act as a groundsman or caretaker maybe in exchange for being allowed to live there and have use of a bit of land to farm.Before and after his time there William Morgan was described as a labourer.

I had a look roound the Rickeston Bridge area yesterday and also looked at some old maps.It would appear that there was an Upper and a Lower mill the Upper mill being where the care home is now.This was occupied for many years by the Devonald family.The Lower mill was a few hundred yards to the West alongside a stone jetty which would have been accessible to coastal vessels at high tide.Now only the jetty remains.The Codds were there from 1861 onwards .Previously Tobias Codd was miller at Winsle Mill which was a few miles away towards St.Brides.One of Tobias Codd jnr's brothers Abel became miller at Mullock mill nearby .

I noticed from the 1911 Census that Tobias was now living in Upper Rickeston Mill. Not sure whether they moved home or just acquired more land. I didn't realise that they was a jetty near Lower Rickeston - but I can see with Google Earth that there is an inlet from the coast at that point

I can see a Sarah A Codd marrying a Richard John in 1913 - but no other marriages up to 1916 (the battle of Jutland) - and no obvious births for Arthur and Edward

Hi
My family were living at Rickeston Mill which is now a nursing home. My great great grandparents were Thomas Devonald and Elizabeth Codd.  Elizabeth was born at Greenmire Mill in 1843 and was the daughter of Tobias Codd born 1816 and Lettice Hughes born 1820. Elizabeth had 2 brothers Abel and Tobias.
Tobias born 1816 was the son of Tobias Codd born 1774 and Elizabeth Moore 1776.
I know that the layout of the road at Rickeston has been altered as my dad is from Milford Haven, and though living away from there now he visits a few times a year. There is still a  bungalow at Rickeston Bridge where my great grandparents lived and my dad recalls visiting them as a child.  My great grandfather was George Devonald and my great grandmother was Caroline Bevans. George was one of 12 children born at Rickeston Upper Mill which is now the nursing home. There were 2 mills at Rickeston, and I think that Tobias and Lettice lived there at some stage also.

Hello

My Auntie Bessie was born Sarah Elizabeth Codd - my grandfather named her after his sister Sarah and his Auntie Elizabeth - your great great grandmother. I noticed from the Census forms that there were Codds and Devonalds on the same pages - so a marriage was always on the cards. Life must have been hard in those times but one compensation would have been living in an area of outstanding natural beauty - the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park.

   The Devonalds lived at Rickeston UPPER Mill and the Codds at Rickeston LOWER Mill, the latter being where I was born  and which is now the Nursing Home.   Obviously, the river proved to be no obstacle to courtship.  Best wishes.

Well it all sounds like the Waltons at Rickeston Mill (one of my fav programmes)  - I can imagine everone saying goodnight to other family members - so lovely. I was just wondering where people went on the weekends - would they have walked to Milford or was there somewhere nearer that the locals would call their own.
I was looking at Google Earth and the roads look so narrow in Rickeston - would be safe for a non-driver like me to wander around the Pembrokeshire roads - perhaps one of those luminous jackets would help. I feel more at home in Pembrokeshire than in my native Glamorgan - now why is that?

Hello Sarah
I was interested to hear that Tobias Codd was at  Greenmire Mill in 1841 .I have been researching old mills in the area and so that is one to add to the list. The 1841 census has it as Marloes Court Mill but I see from the map that Greenmire Cottage is shown on the path from the car park down to Marloes Sands.Past the cottage the path runs alongside the stream that flows out across Marloes Sands.Presumably the mill was along that stream.In 1851 the Codd family were at Winsle Mill which was about half way beteen Rickeston and Marloes.By 1861 they were at Rickeston Lower Mill. Tobias Codd snr died in 1881 so his son Tobias took over the mill and was still there in 1901.In 1911 they were at Rickeston Upper Mill ,Tobias Codd jnr dying in 1925.I  looked at some old maps in Haverfordwest library and the Upper Mill was definately where the nursing home is now.The Lower Mill was  by the quay to the W. and is gone without trace.Thomas Devonald and family was at the Upper Mill in 1871 and was there until his death in 1896.I certainly agree with you Malcolm that it is a beautiful place to live.Despite the refineries and the LNG terminal !

  Re Rickeston Mill,now a Nursing home.  There was another mill a little further up the valley on the left bank of the river and where I understood the Devonalds to have lived. If you continued upstream you come to yet another mill called  Syke Mill which is in Walwyns Castle parish. There was only one mill as far as I know in the Marloes Sands area and that was Marloes Court Mill.  We locals still refer to that part of the beach as the Mill.

I am new to rootschat so its taken me a while to get the hang of it all...
Thomas Devonald and family did live at Rickeston-Upper-Mill. This is what I was brought up to believe that the Devonalds (Waltons)  were living at Rickeston-Upper-Mill which is the nursing home now, and besides the census I have a copy of the large family bible that gives all the birth as Rickeston-Upper-Mill..The bungalow my great grandparents lived in has now been rebuilt.
I am from Glamorgan also, but my roots are deep in Pembrokeshire..

  When my Grandad, Tommy John of Rickeston Mill felt like an ale, he would sneak off to his favourite watering hole,
which was the Sloop at Sandy Haven.  This meant crossing the creek by foot so he had to watch the tide and even worse he had to take shelter from Granny's wrath when he returned.  The Sloop,long gone, was a very popular venue with the local menfolk. Anyone who remembers Granny Pattie will know that Tommy did'nt manage to escape very often, he dare'nt.   Will pass on your greetings to my cousin.  Thank you.

Anyone with Codd ancestors from Pembrokeshire might be interested to hear of a project run by the coastlands history group.There will be a talk at Marloes village hall on 23rd May by Malcolm Cullen on the Codd family. People with any imformation about their ancestors are being invited to contact them.They can do so on line at (*)

I have just been to the county record office at Haverfordwest and have found out some things of interest.On the tithe map of around 1840 I found the mill just above the beach at Marloes known as Marloes Court Mill or Greenmire Mill.According to the 1841 census Tobias Codd snr was miller there.It shows the mill building and mill pond and also the cottage up the present track to the beach which is still there.The landowner was Edward (the honourable)Williams and the mill and some land was rented to Nathan James Dean.Perhaps he sub let the mill or employed Tobias Codd to run the mill.A later map showed Winsle Mill near Butterhill House where Tobias Codd was miller in 1851.It seems to be missing from later maps and I have traced no other occupiers.I also looked at a copy of a sale auction catalogue for a sale at the Mariners Hotel,Haverfordwest on 21st June 1919 .It was the sale of th Rickeston estate comprising Rickeston,Middle Rickeston,Rickeston Water,Little Rickeston,Lower Rickeston,And also the Upper and Lower Mills as one lot.The catalogue had been marked in pencil at the sale as the bidding progressed.The mills included 22acres,2 roods,31 perches of land,dwelling house,cowshed,stables and piggeries.The tenant was given as Tobias Codd paying a rent of 63 pa.He purchased the lot for 1000.Little Rickeston and 33acres currently tenanted by the representatives of James Devonald(deceased) was bought by Mrs Devonald for 1800.I also looked at a document of 1738 givig details of a property transfer between Nicholas Roch and his son George Roch of the Rickeston estate.He may have otherwise been known as Baron de Rutzen but I found it very hard to decipher and gave up.

The information is interesting John, and sounds as though you had a good search at the records office. I am trying to work out where James Devonald (deceased) fits into my tree, I will have to get my research out and have a look. Without a doubt he is from my own Devonald line but when there are so many of the same name it does get confusing.  :)

   Mal,  Some info to correct previous info I gave on Greataunt Sarah.  Her husband was a Thomas James and he was serving on the Warrior when he was killed at Jutland.    The 2 sons were Arthur and Edward.   I have'nt yet got a date for the marraige or venue but it may have been in Herbrandston.    Be seeing you.

Can anyone tell me who Jane John Codd the wife of Tobias Codd was married to 1st.  And what the name of her daughter by her 1st marriage was.

My third great grandmother was Elizabeth Codd who married John Ormond.  She was the 2nd child of Tobias Codd and Elizabeth Moore according to my records.

Hallo Mal,  I O U a big apology,regarding Greataunt Sarah your Grandads sister.  I met up yesterday with the grandson of Sarah and Thomas James(Jutland) and found that she was not a Codd.  The only connection she had to our Codds was the fact that she was the sister of Thomas John who married Martha Codd, my Gran.  Sorry to have got it all wrong.   It looks as if the search is back on for Sister Sarah.  I only know that she had left home by 1901,possibly to go into service or get married.      Be seeing you.   Good luck with your  searching.

Well that explains who she wasn't. I'm having difficulty finding her getting married or on census forms of 1901 and 1911. I wonder whether she died young. Oh well, onwards and upwards. More searching is required I feel.

Well I would just like to say was a pleasant surprise to see such a large turnout at the talk about the Codds of Pembrokeshire last Wednesday - it was fun trying to work out where we all fitted into the overall scheme of things. I did manage a visit to Marloes sands and Marles Court Farm (where it all began for most of us). It was a bit grey and overcast when I was going around with my camcorder but as soon as I got on board the Puffin Bus to Haverfordwest the sun came out and it hads been a scorcher ever since (just my luck). I had a lovely night's rest at Albion House and was only sorry to leave so soon. I have tried to get the ball rolling with the Pembrokeshire Coastal Society - so we'll have to wait and see what happens next.

Well

Her siblings were James William Martha and Hannah - she was born in 1883

Her parents were Tobias Codd and Mary Jenkins

Tobias was the son of Tobias Codd and Lettice Hughes

and that Tobias was the son of Tobias Codd and Elizabeth Moore

Hello All,
My next door neighbour has asked me if I could start off her family tree which has led me back to the Codd's of Marloes in Milford Haven.

I am curious to see that Margaret b.1836 d/o William Codd and Martha  Wilcox (or Sarah Wilcox) is recorded in the 1911 census as married 47 years to a Barmby. She is also down as a Barmby in the 1881 census but I cannot find any marriage for her. I've also been unable to locate her in the 1861,1871 or 1891 census.
If anyone can shed some light on her whereabouts I would be grateful.
Thanks

I'm not sure about the last reference number but that is what shows up when I go to save it on my computer.

Dear All,
Not sure if the following fits in with any of the previous, but from my research into and the production of a booklet on headstones of St Michael Pembroke I note ;
LEATICE
THE BELOVED WIFE
OF JOHN CODD
WHO DIED FEB 4 1867
AGED 53 YEARS

Authors notes ; Leatice Codd was buried at St Michaels on the 08 Feb 1867, by D.W. Morris.  On the 07 Oct 1854 John Codd of full age a widower and labourer of the Eastend the son of Thomas Codd  a labourer had mrd Letitia Thomas of full age a widow of Rose Valley, the dau of William John a labourer by banns in front of W.M.D. Berrington. Both signed their names in the presence of William Edwards and George Froyne.  Research would suggest her husband John was baptized at Reynoldston on the 16 Feb 1800 and was buried on the 20 Jan 1876 aged 76 years by Henry S. Blink, if buried in St Michaels his headstones does not appear to survive. It would appear that Letitia had been baptized at Monkton St Nicholas on the 08 Mar 1812 to William & Catherine John.

Still here Mal.  Have noticed that there is a Codd on the War Memorial at Dale,Pembs. Born at St Ishmaels(Pembs),he was the son of Thomas and Sarah Jane Codd. Private John Codd 46477,Welsh Reg was killed in action at Messines in 1917 aged 27 years. No known grave and is commemorated on the Ypres memorial.

In Reply to: Pembrokeshire Codds by Stacey Codd  of 431 


Hello Stacey
I am also decended from the Codd line.
William (1747-1812), Tobias (1773-1852), Tobias (1814-1851), Abel(1842-1920), Beatrice Martha Codd(married Puttuck)(1874-1930), Lilian Puttuck(married Poole) my grandmother.

I had also recently read that the Codd's decended from 6 brothers who came over in 1300's from Sweden, but they were millers of corn and wheat etc., not fishermen. That is why most of the decendents lived in various mills around Pembrokeshire areas. The old book that you refer to is called The Midas Touch and was written by a Codd in 1980 but I have been unable to trace it via the internet.

I am interested to learn more about your father's side of the family and who he is descended from please.

Kind regards
Penny

Hi, I am the project coordinator of the Codd YDna project. We have two linked projects where we are trying to figure out the early history of the Codd families, Devon, Cornwall and Ireland are all well represented but we have no Codd families from Wales as yet. It seems there are some pretty active Codd genealogists really interested in their family history in Wales and we would love you to be part of the project. The Codds in Wales are supposed to be related to the Irish Codds it would be amazing to see if we can prove the links through DNA. I have found one Codd family still living on the Carew estate in Tenby documented as being there since the 1700's and i find this intriguing as the Codd family entered Ireland with the family from this estate. Are you directly related to Tobias Codd? Would you consider being part of the project? All the best, Zoe

I was able to read your message thank you for responding so quickly I really appreciate it. I am so glad to discover the Welsh Codds are as interested in their family history as we are.

Hi Malcolm, do you know who your most distant male Codd ancestor is? How far back have you been able to get in your research? Would you be at all interested or willing to do a dna test to be part of our project? It has been intriguing so far at this stage there does not seem to be any dna connection between the Codds in England and the Codds in Ireland. In Ireland we have a large group that are directly related to each other and seem to come from one family originating in 1680, dna has helped us in our research. The history that we have is that the Codds came to Ireland with Strongbow in the 1100's and were richly rewarded. They seem to have been based in Wales before that and were Normans do Welsh Codds have this same story of being Norman and intimately linked with the de Clares? Of course we could all be tennants that lived on Codd lands and took the owners surname as surnames were just being adopted at that time. I think it would be very interesting to see if the Irish Codds and Welsh Codds share the same dna or if we are completely different, and how the Welsh Codds are related to each other.

Are there any Codd researchers in Wales who might be interested in helping us with the Codd dna project at FTDNA to start to research the Codd families in Wales and see how they might be related to each other? Devon, Cornwall and Ireland are all well represented Wales is the only country not represented so far. The Cornwall project has been particularly fascinating if anyone wants to take a look you can search our projects at FTDNA or google the one name study Coad by Joe Flood his work is remarkable. Zoe

I've made a few discoveries about the descendants of Tobias Codd and Letitica Hughes. They had a son, John, who was born in 1853. However I cannot find him on any census forms or a death certificate. Also Tobias Codd and Mary Jenkins had 2 children born and died between 2 Census years. Benjamin was born and died in 1890 and Beatrice was born in 1891 and died in 1893, a year after her mother Mary.

Yes it is - there was a gathering of the Codds a few years ago in Marloes. Some of the Ormonds moved to America in the Early 19th Century
