Jones/Foulke family of Llechwedd, Llandrillo - help finding where from..
« on: Tuesday 06 October 15 21:00 BST (UK) »
Dear all,

On a tangent from my last post, I'm trying to find out more about the Jones family of Llechwedd/Tyddyn y Merched, Llandrillo, and more specifically where the children of John (1738-1814) and Dorothy Jones (1743-1827) were born as they do not appear in Llandrillo parish registers:

John & Dorothy Jones' children were:
Giles b.1776, apprenticed to a Grocer in Oswestry, d. 1801
Richard, 1770-1840
Edward, 1774-1835
John, 1766-1829, moved to Oswestry
Catherine (m. John Lewis Jones, Clawddponken, Corwen)

This family share a gravestone with Elizabeth Foulkes (1730-1752) and her father Thomas Foulkes, Dinan, Llandrillo (died 1736), and I can't work out what the connection is to this family. There is a 'Foulke Jones' living in the early 1700s in Llandrillo but does not appear to be related.

If anyone can help with where this family came from it would be a great help! - they seem to have lived in Llandrillo yet no baptisms have taken place here!

Thank you in advance,
Jones9

Hi - I have Foulkes and Jones connections to Llandrillo in my wife's family tree. My details are still a bit sketchy because, like you, I am struggling to find records.

Robert J Foulkes was born 1862 in Llandrillo.
Robert married Amy Owen who was born 1864 in Aberdovey.
They had a son David Owen Foulkes, birth record says 1893 in Newport.
David married Annie Jones - born 1896, no record about where.

Robert had siblings:
Elizabeth - born 1857 in Llanfor
Anne - born 1864 in Llandrillo
Jane - born 1867 in Llandrillo
Edward - born 1870 in Llandrillo

I appreciate this does not pin down exactly what you were looking for but the additional names at least identify a Foulkes link with Llandrillo

Hope it helps
