John Davies b 1796 Llanrwst
« on: Saturday 26 November 16 16:19 GMT (UK) »
I am looking for any information about John Davies b 1794 +/- 3 in (or near) Llanrwst. In particular I am trying to get to earlier generations. He was first found in Arddynwent (South of Mold Flintshire) in 1840 Census. In 1851 he is at Penrallt Farm (near the Clwyd Gate on the A494) and in 1861 he's at Ffynnon Y Berth. (near the A494 and B5430 Junction) North of Llanarmon Yn Ial. He is not to be found  in later censuses but his children have scattered. They include Hugh Davies b 1831 and James b 1837 who are farming at Waen Y Balls, Flint Mountain in 1871. I think John's wife was Elizabeth. The censuses have her born in Holywell or Treuddyn so it could be 2 different Elizabeths. A possible birth for John is in 1794 (Bap. 31 Aug) to David & Margaret, but I have no proof that this is MY John Davies. That name in Llanrwst is a bit like looking for a blade of grass in a hayrick. Any connections or help much appreciated.

If I have the right John;
1841 he is age 45
1851 born c 1786 Llanrhwst, Denbighshire
1861 born c 1789 Llanrwst, Denbighshire

The Birth Cert of Son James will give you Elizabeth maiden name.

Aaah from new Site;
DAVIES, JAMES, Mothers maiden name WILLIAMS
GRO Reference: 1837  D Quarter in HOLYWELL  Volume 27  Page 193

FreeREG has some Llanrwst Baptisms but not as far back as John was born.

Thanks very much for the info. None of them hold clues in the family names, I am looking for Hugh, Ellen and Owen in particular but I shall follow up your hints and see what I can find. Very kind of you. :)
