Surname ISTANCE
« on: Sunday 17 December 17 13:45 GMT (UK) »
I am currently doing a One Name Study of the surname ISTANCE and through research have found a few living in Carmarthen and surrounding areas. I wondered if anyone, through their research, had come across the surname and would be interested in your findings. I am registered with the Guild of One Name Studies and have a website Istance.one-name.net.

Thanks, Rosie. No I didn’t know. Should’ve guessed there be one, 🙄

11 October 1814, John Istance - Mary Fisher, St Peters Carmarthenshire
29 April 1819, Richard Istance - Mary Griffiths, St Peters, Carmarthenshire
6 April 1837, Thomas Istance - Martha Roach, Spittal, Pembrokeshire

I don't know if this will help,but the Welsh Newspapers Online has 71 reports of family notices relating to the name Istance,which may of course include multiple reports of the same event and mistakes in OCR.If you change the criteria to all references there are over 2,000.

Wow, thanks Roger. Thought I had found most of the Istance’s in Welsh Newspapers but you’ve found a few more for me. Many thanks  :D

Many thanks, but yes I have those three marriages. Trouble with the Istance surname is that there are many variants, most common being Intance, but thanks anyway.

At the bottom of every RootsChat page in the brown section is a section -  "Surnames Interest Table" - if you click on this it will take you to another screen where you can add your "Istance" surnames or check to see if there are any other members researching those names.  Perhaps this may be useful some time.  ;)
