Title: Two Locks
Post by: philsearch on Saturday 09 January 21 13:38 GMT (UK)
Hi all, does anyone know who lived at No1 Two Locks Llantarnam in 1891 census please. I have this address mixed up in my records and I canít think why. Cheers, Phil.

there are a few pages of cottages on Two Locks Road but the houses themselves are not numbered. So, depending which way the enumerator walked,

Two Locks is the name of a suburb in Cwmbran.
Prospect Place looks to be in that suburb?

Hi KGarrad, I have a living relative residing in the Two Locks area and he seem to think Prospect place is a little bit further away.

Ah, a discrepancy between Ancestry and family search. Itís the same family at both addresses then. I wrote it down years ago and am revisiting this part of my family because of a dna match, Phil.
