Hi!
For some reason I cannot reply to messages!! Yes I am the granddaughter of Morfydd Roberts (Owen). My father is Alwyn Roberts and his brother is Iwan Roberts. Iwan is living in the 'newer bunglow'. Will be visiting Nain tomorrow, so looking forward to telling her that I've come across this thread.

Hi,
Just going through some old photos and found this one.  Probably mid 30's.  I'd have to ask mum for more details.  but this is my father, John Kenneth Williams with his uncle Owen John, at Cilmelyn.

Hi,

I think you are right with the 1930's date as it fits in with the records I have for the farms at Cilmelyn.

There were two farms both of which carried the name Cilmelyn. One was just called Cilmelyn and was with the Owen family (my family) and the other was Cilmelyn (Ysgubor Wen) which was the Williams family (your family).

I have a record from the 1939 register which shows a Hugh and Gwladys Williams and a John K Williams living at Cilmelyn (Ysgubor Wen). Hugh Williams is recorded as a Butcher and John K Williams is recorded as being at school at the time.

As I have said in earlier posts both farms have now gone and replaced by Ysbyty Gwynedd.

Thanks that fits exactly with what I know of the family history.  Dad (John Kenneth) was born in 1927, and living on the farm when his mother died when he was about 11. What happened to the farm after that I am unsure. Taid joined the merchant navy, my father was at the grammar school and stayed with various aunts. Started work for the Post Office, something electrical I think, then left for England when he was 19.

Nice to fill in little bits of the puzzle. Thanks.
