Hi Dave, I notice in your family interests you have Rowsells. I too have Rowsells from Paulton Somerset, I wonder if there is a connection?  My G Grandmother was a Martha Rowsell married a Lewis Carter both from Paulton they then moved to Ynysybwl via Tredegar, in the late 1800s. Martha had brothers Thomas, George and sister Hannah, Their parents were Henry and Hester, Henrys father was Thomas 1778-1821, and his father was William 1745- 1797. If there is a connection I would like to investigate further.  Thanks.

I know a (*) Coombes, who claims he has an ancestor hanged for sheeping stealing in Wales.† †Would this be a connection?† If interested post to Hamburgmichael.

Would be interested to hear.† †His branch sailed to New England in the 18th century and another Coombes ancestor was a colonel in George Washington's army.

Many thanks.

Hello  :)

NLW has a Crime and Punishment database with details of crimes, criminals and punishments included in the gaol files of the Court of Great Sessions in Wales 1730 to 1830:

Can't see a Coombes there though.  :-\

For those with Carmarthenshire felons there is another database:

Kind regards

I know this is a very old thread but I've only just seen it. Mary Edwards (Coombes) was my great-great-grandmother so this is very interesting to me. I've been looking for the family's burial places so I'll try St. Mabon.
