Griffiths in Holt?
« on: Sunday 12 October 08 21:54 BST (UK) »
Hello,

Looking for any info. on Elinor Griffiths[b.1857,Nantcwnlle Parish,Cardiganshire] and also possibly her brother Daniel[b.1860,same Parish]

I don't know a great deal about Elinor other than in the Methodist Chapel records in Bwlchllan[home village] she is recorded as.....'Let go to Holt'.I can only presume that she moved to Holt and that a letter of introduction and recommendation went with her to Holt Methodist Chapel?I don't think she returned home as there is no record of her being interred with her family.

Daniel comes into the scene as there is also a mention in the Chapel records that he was ......'Received from Holt'.However I know he was buried at home.

I seek any knowledge of these and their connection to Holt and would welcome anything that might throw some light.

Thankyou,brawd houdini

Hello lizzie,

Thanks for looking and taking the time to reply.
Some of what you say I already have such as the info. on his parents and siblings,I should have made it clearer what info. I already had.
However the mention of Daniel being an Apprentice Chemist in Carmarthen is interesting.I shall certainly go and look this up, you may have found the answer to where he lived and what his occupation was.
Will let you know and thanks once again.
Regards,David
