Walwyn's Castle - Place of Abode
« on: Monday 06 March 17 15:30 GMT (UK) »
Attached is part of a baptism record from the Walwyn's Castle register for 1822. Can anyone advise as regards the place(s) of Abode given in the fourth box? I've looked at old OS maps, but have no success. I am assuming that the first word is 'Dowlas'.

If you check the same register for Jane Thomas bap 25 Nov 1833 it shows "Dowlasgate" somewhat more clearly
S. Wales, Somerset, Devon - Oxenham

Aberavon - Hopkin/s, Jenkins, Thomas
St. Brides/Wick - Jenkins
Llanblethian -  Price
Abergwynfi -  Han(d)ford
Pontardawe -  Lewis.

Gosh! That was quick folks. I wasn't even expecting to get any replies. Many thanks to all of you. I have found Sydney Lodge, adjacent to Romans Castle, on the 1868 OS map. Just east of Walwyn's Castle on the road to Tiers Cross. No sign of a 'Dowlasgate'. I presume in must have been a house located somewhere fairly adjacent?
