Hi MaxD - as you always, you are an absolute star.

Thank you for highlighting the corrections.  I have amended as suggested and reattached.  I would be grateful for your input into the content of the other attached extract please (i.e. the location)



Good afternoon,

Following up the excellent help that I received last year, I have attached a summary of Francis and would be grateful if someone could look over the military aspects to see if I have collated them correctly.

Many thanks,

Hi Sikes,

Thank you for the reply and for the information you kindly gave me 8 years ago.  My progress so far is that I have Martha's parents John Emery (born abt. 1816 Malmesbury and in Cardiff from the 1861 census onwards) and Elizabeth Kendall (born abt 1819 Tetbury - died before 1891).  I have no baptism, marriage or death for either at present.

I have Michael Holloway Dean's parents John Dean (b. 1804 Bilston - d. 1856 Bilston) and Mary Anne Holloway (born abt. 1806 Staffordshire - died before 1851).  They married 24 May 1825.  John's will is very lengthy and informative.

I haven't managed to get any further back yet with any of these branches.  Also as this thread shows, I haven't been able to get Martha's birth cert.

Any more help would be very much appreciated.



My other Shropshire / Gwyddelwern link are the Bodley family - do they appear anywhere with you?

Thanks Gadget for the link - I was also looking at the nls side by side maps.

Just in case there is any connection with your aunty, the family I was looking at were Price Oliver Davies, his wife Margaret Hannah Hughes and their children Olive Marjory Davies and Norman Price Davies. Price's father  and my great grand father were brothers originally from Gwyddelwern.


Thanks Gadget.

Have checked it on the modern maps and it still exists so I am happy to stick with it.  Thank you again for your help.


Thank you Carol,

I feel a little bit silly now!  I went to the top of the same page trying to work out the addresses there but didn't think to move to the next page!

The address now seems to be Oak Mill Cottage, Twmpath, Gobowen - what do you think?


Good afternoon and thank you for any help that can be given.

I would be grateful if someone is able to transcribe the address in the attached extract please.  The original transcriber has it down as "Ball Mill Cottage Pi? Governess".

Thank you,
