« on: Saturday 20 May 17 00:18 BST (UK) »
Can anyone help me with the attached place names please?  The top image is from a marriage register in Holyhead dated 1858.  The 3rd entry on the last image is from the 1861 census.
Andrews - Devizes, London, Hull
Armstrong - Hartlepool
Bartusek - London, Bohemia (near Prague)
Roberts - Stoke on Trent
Sharman, Shearman, Sherman - Surlingham, Norfolk
Wilson - Hartlepool, Scotland (possible Kirkcaldy)

Apart from the dot the first one looks like Penrhos y fedw.I wonder if this means an abode of Y Fedw in Penrhos(llygwy)?
The second is Garreg Cefn.Again I wonder if this is an abode e.g. in Llanbadrig,not a million miles from Holyhead,Anglesey.

Regards
Roger

Looks like Penrhos y Feilw is possible for the first:-

The second may be Carreg Cefn rather than Garreg Cefn.If an abode there was one in Llanbadrig
