Bontfawr - Need help finding Amlwch abode
« on: Thursday 12 July 18 19:47 BST (UK) »
Sounds like two of my 5X Great Grandfather Emanuel Evansí children (Thomas and Hannah Evans) both died in November of 1797 (20th and 24th), and Bontfawr was their abode.  May have been in Amlwch, or may have been near Llanerchymedd as I have seen reference to a minister named Emanuel Evans there.  He was a yeoman as well, so may have had a large or small freeholding.  Can anyone locate this home/Farm in the late 1700ís?  Two others (possibly farm workers) died at the abode in the same year, a Margaret Griffith and a William Painter, died 1797 at Bontfawr.

Also in the 1801 Amlwch census, It says Emaníl (Emanuel) Evans lived at Treydrath.  Was that Trefdraeth misspelled, or is that a different home/place name?

Thank you for any help you can send my way!  Emanuel is my brick wall, and this additional information may finally help me figure out who his parents are.
