Can't read placename
« on: Monday 03 July 17 16:29 BST (UK) »
Can anyone make out the birthplace here, please? I think the county is Cardigan, but what is the town/village?

I agree with Carol, Llechred (Llechryd) about 3 miles from Cardigan.

Thanks everyone. I've looked at the baptism registers for Llechryd and it seems to  be the right place.
