Where is Kilken?
« on: Tuesday 21 July 15 12:18 BST (UK) »
Am trying to pinpoint two locations on a 1714 parish register for Bodfari; the locations are given as Kilken and (I think) Aberchwily. I do not believe they are in the parish of Bodfari, as everyone else mentioned is "of this parish". If neither were from Bodfari why did they get married there.

Any help gratefully received.
