Hi Rob, In the 1841 Farm tithes it is given as Cwrt Y Bettin, according to my dictionary the translation of the word Betin or Bettin gives cribau Sant Ffraid, or Betony which is a herbal plant, I think this is the origin of the name, which changed over the years to Cwrt Y Betty.
I also have an interest in this farm, I went there with my mother in the 1940s, I was told the occupants were distant relatives, best wishes Rowley

Thanks for the extra info Rowley.
I'm not 100% sure but I think David Morgan who was there in 1861, was a brother to my GGgrandfather.
I expect the Morgans were long gone before your visits in the 1940s.
I haven't found any offspring for David & Mary.
Regards,
Rob

Hello Rob and Rowley
If I may butt in; I came upon your discussion about Cwrt y Bettin by pure chance. 

Thomas Bevan, a person of interest to me, was lodger there on 1861 and wondering where the address was I googled it and bingo found the answer on rootscaht :)   
anything and everything to do with the village of Brithdir, near New Tredegar in Gwent.
