Brilliant .. thank you guys. I transcribed it correctly but couldnít find anything that matched. Didnít realise it is now spelt differently. Iím pleased to know it is Mold but that matches my search place.
I tried Clwyd list but it seems to be down.

It was spelt Gwysaney by all and sundry until quite recently, and still is on the map - historic Gwysaney Hall, the ancestral home of the Davies-Cooke family. Your relatives quite posh - or just servants or estate workers?

Definitely not posh! I thought it was an area not an estate. This is a baptism so perhaps parents worked on it. Mostly they were miners who definitely were not well off. They were still signing with a x well into the mid 1800s and moving around from pillar to post. A few farmers who seemed slightly better off. Most of the ones I claim so far are based in and around Northop and weíre colliers. So Mold is thankfully widening the gene pool... maybe!

It was originally one of the old townships that comprised Mold, Jane. The Genuki link lists it and also a further bit of info about it here:

http://www.clwydfhs.org.uk/eglwysi/mold.htm

Quote
In 1865, part of the township of Gwysanau went to the new parish of Rhydymwyn.

Clwyd FHS and the person who wrote it up (once a stalwart of Clwyd FHS) seem to have consistently spelled it with the 'au' ending.

Note, in your example the long S is used

Yes.. I was quite proud of recognising the long 's'.. but however I tried I couldn't match it up with anything obvious.. partly because there are so many places that look similar if you allow for changes of spelling. And I'm not familiar with Welsh place names...
But interesting about Gwysanau Hall... Davies is one of the family I am researching in that area... but there are millions of them!

So... if someone is baptised at Mold..in this case Edward Griffiths, 1804 s/o John Griffiths and Mary Jones of Gwyssaney,  Iíd start looking for parents marriage in same place . But nearest I can find is Northop .. which I like because that is where Edward Griffith susbsequently lived and died...(well.. at least I know he did from 1841 until death from Census records... not idea of where he was for first 27 years!)
But still there are a lot of other options.. I think I found 16 marriages for Mary Jones and John Griffith/s.. is the Ďsí significant do you think? And would it be normal for someone to marry in Northop but have children baptised at Mold? I know what is Ďusualí for Devon and Lancashire, but not Wales. Unfortunately his parents donít seem to have survived long enough to appear in a Census record.
