Thanks for the help. The only Margaret Davies that I have likely is one born 1872 Ystradyfodwg. Strangely I was looking at something only yesterday and saw Salathiels.  Must have been census.

yattonharry, I have Davies b 1816 from Troedyraur in my tree but, unfortunately so far, no Benjamin.

The earliest I have is Daniel Davies who was born, lived and died in Troedyraur. He married Esther Jones in 1836 and Sarah James in 1839. By the 1871 Census he had become a Master Shoemaker.

I understand his father was Daniel Davies but no details I'm afraid. I wonder if he was a brother of Benjamin?

I hope this helps rather than hinders.

Regards, David

Great and wonderful news! I have been searching and searching the NLW Newspapers for the Death of my Benjamin Davies for several hours and found not a thing, and then I tried advanced search and hey ho it came up first!


On the 30th ult [Sept 1869] Mr Benjamin Davies of Graigddu House, Dinas, formerly of [wonderful words those!] Howen Farm, Troedyaur, Cardiganshire aged 77 years.


I don't suppose that the farm still survives, but does anyone know of this farm please?

Great news indeed!

See my earlier reply #3 where I listed Sarah Davies at Howen Farm.

I am sorry Morganllan but I don't seem to be able to find this - probably tired after my searching on NLW

Ah thanks, I collected a file on the likely Sarah's but I will now look again, at this 1841 Howden.

Look on googlemap and hone in on Troedyraur and you'll see HAWEN just south of Rhydlewis on the B4334. I dare say it is around there.

Yes thanks David, I did that immediately I had found the newspaper and found the Rhydlewis Chapel at that point.  What a lovely place that looks and the surrounding village. Must discover if the graveyard has been transcribed.

Thanks for the interest and support David.
