Tan y Bont, Llandisilio - Street Name
« on: Thursday 30 November 17 17:42 GMT (UK) »
I am trying to trace the approximate location of a road called Tan y Bont in Llandisilio, Menai Bridge.  The Pritchard family I am looking at lived at number 3 on the 1881 census but I can't find the street on any maps (old or new).  There are over 3 census pages for the road so it must have been more than just a few houses.  There is a Tan y Bonc/New Street on current maps and New Street is also listed on the 1881 census (just before Tan y Bont) so it seems possible it is the same street but I would welcome confirmation.

Is the welsh for Tan y Bonc the same as Tan y Bont?

Very grateful for any help.
Peter.

Have you tried looking for 'Cambria Inn' which is listed in Tan y Bont  :-\

Thanks for that Rosie - you can tell I am new to this!
Cambria Inn is still there as a listed building so I can check where it is.

Many thanks,
Peter.

I am hopeless with Wales research so did not know whether it was the same Cambria Inn as the listed one  ::)  ;D  Glad I could help a little bit.
