Flintshire / Re: Absalom Davies Marriage
« on: Monday 04 March 19 13:56 GMT (UK)  »
There is an 1803 Nantwich marriage of Absalom Davies to Margaret Griffith.She is"of this parish".Absalom is difficult to read but possibly "of Worthenbury"

Tipperary / Re: "Genevieve" a common 19th century name?

Jennifer is said to be a Cornish equivalent of the Welsh Gwenhwyfar,in turn related to Guinevere(as in Arthurian legend) but I'm not aware of a further link to Genevieve.

Ann(e),the wife of William and mother of Sarah dies at "Pyscoch" in March1838 aged 45.William re marries in 1839 to a Martha Geap,and it is she who appears in the 1841 and subsequent censuses.So were Thomas and Mary visiting William following the death of Anne.when Timothy was born there?Baptism record is for November 1838.

Actually on the very same image as Timothy,albeit the previous page of the register is Sarah,daughter of William and Anne,Pyscoch,1836,consistent with the 1841 census.

I have tried to link them but also failed so far.I did wonder whether the variant names as transcribed were all abbreviations of the cumbersome Pen y Ffos Goch i.e PyFGoch?
I will try to see if here are other births with that abode,and,if so,which family group they belong to.

The family of William Morgan continue to live there until at least 1881,the name being rendered variously as Post Coch,Typoch etc.Taking a look at surrounding properties on all censuses,I would say the most likely is Pen y Ffos Goch by Crossway Cottage approx postcode NP7 8AW.

Pyscoch(as transcribed) appears in the 1841 census with a Morgan family resident.Neighbouring properties on that census are Skirrid Farm and Pentre Farm which I can locate on old maps,but not yet Pyscoch.

Try putting quotation marks around the name.
If you can manipulate the position and size of the article,or vital info from it,into view on the screen,you can take a "screenshot",ssve and then print that file.The method for taking a screenshot varies between computers.There is usually a "help" option on your main page which you can use to find instructions,or "google it"!
