Llangonoyd in 1841 Census
« on: Sunday 17 September 17 22:26 BST (UK) »
I have completely failed to find this place on an O.S.map. I attatch a copy of the record so someone may be able to put me in the right direction. Could the name have changed in this period?
Many thanks for any help. Toby.

The first two elements look like Cwmdu,Llangynwyd.I'll work on the third element.

I think the final element may be Cambrian/Cwmbrwian/Cwmbran Road.

Thanks Roger for getting this thing off the ground. I felt that the third word of the address was "Row". I felt that that was more likely than "Road" as it seemed that Llangonoyd was a pretty small place.  Just a thought. T

Yes,it could well be Row.I'll try looking at some old maps to see if I can find anything.

I'm not sure how I missed it,but there is a Cambrian Row listed in the 1841 census.It seems to occupy a lot of pages and at the end there is a Talbot Arms.I can't find Cambrian Row in the 1851 census,but interestingly,The Talbot Arms comes at the end of Maesteg Road.I still haven't been able to positively identify Cambrian Row on a map.

Roger

Making some progress.
On O.S. 25 inch Glamorgan XXVI.14 published 1899 appears
Llangonoyd Station. It is just north of Rhyd-y-cyff.
