Enoch Davies of Ffynondydir - Llaen Rd - Rhyd Lewis - Llandysil
« on: Monday 09 August 04 18:02 BST (UK) »
We are trying to find out more about my GG Grandfather Enoch Davies who lived at Ffynondydir, Llaen Rd, Rhyd Lewis, Llandysil and according to the Glynarthen Congregational Chapel (Penbryn Parish) membership records, he and a Margaret Davies (maybe his wife we do not know)  were members of this chapel in 1872/73.  We know that by1878 he was living in Ebbw Vale and had remarried as his first wife had died of cholera along with two of their children Enoch and Margaret.

Does anyone have any information about him or his family?  We do not know who his parents were, who his wife was, who his other children were (we believe there were others from his first marriage) or why they left Ffynondydir? - we do know that the house was just left and that squatters eventually moved in and were still living there when my family visited there in the 1980s!

Since writing the above I have found out some other information.  An older Enoch Davies (born 1797) was living at Ffynondydir (Ffynondudur) on the 1881 cencus with his Grand daughter Esther (born 1849).  These two are also found on the Glynarthen Chapel membership records of 1875 - 1881.  We do not know where the Margaret Davies went from the earlier 1872/3 chapel records - and now are unsure as to whether the Enoch Davies in the earlier chapel records was the older one or my GG Grandfather - the mystery deepens!  Also - there is no reference to any of them being members in the 1874 records of the chapel. 

Any help would be gratefully received.  Does anyone have a 1871 or earlier census of the area - their parish was Penbryn in Cardiganshire.

The only Enoch DAVIES at Penbryn on the 1871 census is the older one, whose wife is Margaret b 1817 Penbryn.

Enoch is a farmer of 8 acres at the same house as 1881.  There are lots of other DAVIES families around - no surprise there!

Ref: RG10/5546 14 2

Will have a look elsewhere for your younger Enoch, but not too optimistic at this stage.

kind regards, Arranroots   ;)

There are possibilities on the 1861 census for Esther's father, but without further information I am not able to identify which would be yours.

Is Esther definitely you Enoch's daughter?  That would rule out a few Enochs as being too young to be her father.  How did you get back to Enoch in the first place?

Any extra info pelase post here and I will do my best to find him for you>

Incidentally, there doesn't seem to be an Enoch in Ebbw Vale.

Hello Jean

Welcome!  :)

This was one of our earliest threads - started in 2004 - and the OP hasn't been online for a while. Hopefully they still have the same email address and will get notification of your reply.

I should just mention that we don't discuss the details of living people on Rootschat, to protect their privacy. It seems unlikely (depending on which Enoch you mean) but if Olwen is still around you should keep the details  to Personal Messages only, rather than posting on the boards. Thanks.

Kind regards, Arranroots  ;)
