Identify Birthplace Holywell
« on: Thursday 12 October 17 11:49 BST (UK) »
Can anyone read the place name here please, given as place of birth on the left?  Looks like Bl---, Holywell. I've looked on an old map and done a wild card search. Nothing. It might be a tiny hamlet not marked.
 


I've tried inserting image but I don't think it worked. It's a png image 175KB size, so it's legit. However, think I've attached it.

Could it be "Bwlch" with the "w" and "l" transposed?

Thanks all.. I'm wondering if it's the name of a house, but that would be unusual surely... father here is a collier.
Yes, it's a copy of a birth certificate in the Holywell District and Holywell subDistrict. The family in 1871 census are at Near Mill, Flint.. and the parents stayed in the area.

Yes, I think that is what I saw on a map.. failing other options Bwlch is the best.

By the way.. this is Mary Davies' birth certificate.. the subject of another thread which you all helped me with. It arrived this morning and confirms father Thomas collier and mother Sarah Griffiths. At last! So thank you very much for all your help.
