Hi,
The Steam Mill, the people who lived there, what was their occupation?
The Steam Mill in Chester was a Flour Mill powered by steam.
Now a hotel.

There is also a corn mill on station road which may be a better bet than my brickworks

Care to elaborate? Further details may be available ... or are you happy with the information already  supplied? :)

I have a list of a family from the census and the address of the child's birth was Steam Mill. That's why I asked what it was and I am very happy with the response of the kind people on here.  :)

That's OK then.  :) I thought it might be fun to fiddle round with some old maps trying to locate it, but if you are happy, then that's good.  ;)

Pigot's Directory of South Wales 1830
CARMARTHEN
Millers
6 millers are listed, including - 
Yalden William, STEAM MILL

Pigot's Directory of South Wales 1822
No mention of Steam Mill but there is a Corn Mill, Arnold and Griffith, Kidwelly Vach"** - not mentioned in the 1830 Directory

Pigot's Directories of South Wales 1835 and 1844
No mention of Steam Mill

In 1831 a Mr Yalden, Llanelly was advertising a Tan-yard for sale situate near the Bridge, at Carmarthen, with a substantial Dwelling - house and suitable buildings
In 1834 a William Yalden of Llanelly advertised his residence, Vauxhall House, for sale since "he was about to remove". William Yalden may also have been in the timber trade.

** At this time the area around Steam Mill was known as "Kidwelly Fach". I have "walked" the Censuses 1841-1901 for that area and am still going round in circles (literally) trying to relate it to the 1880 map I posted previously.
