Well Hinso you have done me proud
It was curiosity with the 1891 to see if Henry Richards had taken up farming after the demise of his in-laws; the 1901/1911 was a bonus and I thank you for going the extra mile.  I normally use the local library for some research on the census but I have been house-bound since Christmas.  Rootchatters are a blessing and I thank you from the bottom of my heart for your kindness.
Best Wishes, Roy

Hello again
I've just one question with regards to your post of Jan 3rd.

If I am reading the details correctly with regards to the 1871 census John & Sarah were the only two at Ty Isaf, Lower Lledrod. 

The daughter Catherine married Henry Richards in Sept Qtr 1867

Familysearch have the following details in 1871 Tregaron but not the name of dwelling, can you please do a look-up for the name of the dwelling:
Henry Richard, head, 37, born Rhostie
Catherine, wife, 32, Lledrod
Mary, daug, 3, Lledrod
Richard, son, 0. Lledrod   

Regards, Roy

They were all in Ty Isaf in 1871 although the census taker may have spelled it Tu Isaf. That's from memory.

You may wish to have a look at the Topic David Richard-Richards of Strygosfawr, Lledrod on this Forum for an indication of the forebears of the Richards family at Ty-Isaf. I have a scribbled note as follows ....
"52. Jane Richards, Ty-Isaf, Lledrod 22 July 1959"  and "Richards, Henry; Tyssaf", but didn't have enough info to form a link to my Grandfather X 8 and his descendants. They lived in Lledrod lower from 1680 until 1871 but their descendants are spread all over the immediate area.

Hi Peter
Thanks for your interest; there is certainly a lot to take in but I will study the contexts of the topic and see where it leads me.

Just joined this forum and interested to see the name Spite as I lived in Lledrod until the age of 10 and Spite was just around the corner.  (1950s).   I remember an old lady living there occasionally visited by her nephew who once built us a cart from old pram wheels and immediately became a 'hero' to me and my cousin.  Unfortunately cannot remember their names.

Ty Isaf was the first house in the village to have a TV and local were occasionally invited to watch a programme.  When it was our turn the programme was Black and White Minstrels.  We had to dress up and tea and sandwiches were served after....
