I have a death cert which shows my grt g/mother died in 1899 at the Union Workhouse Merthyr Tydifl, but am wondering if there is a way to find out how long she resided there.
Can anyone give suggestions, please.       Many thanks

Hello    I have today 8/10/2020 read with interest some of your comments from Dec 2016 and Jan 2017.       My interest being that an ancestor of mine farmed at Esgerygors Isaf, Ledrod Upper {according to 1841 Census that is}.
Did you solve whatever query you were attempting ?
If your family owned this area, then maybe mine would have been their tenant farmers ?
Their name was Jones, of course!!!!

I am inclined to agree with the mother and youngster passing on suitable sites.    Yes in that great newspaper article {thanks} the sheep walks are large:   maybe it was the way to get the sheep to market, as Brecon was not too far, without uproar from locals.   It looks like a mountainous area.
Will try an 'send' 1851 Census {if I am not infringing any rights!}
Many many thanks to all who replied:  you are a fantastic lot.

In tracing ancestors in LlanddewiBreifi/ Doethie Camddwr  1851 Census, I came across, in the occupation column, 686 acres, including sheep walk.
I am wondering if anyone is able to tell me what this sheep walk means and what it entailed, please.
Many thanks.  F & T

An ancestor died in1990 at Nailsworth Glos and the Probate was dealt with in Llandaff.
Can anyone, please, throw light on why this should be:   was it perhaps that executors resided in Llandaff area perhaps.
Many thanks

Thanks again all and to MedPat,  I have now obtained a further 2 death certs of the same family members, one who died 13/2/1859 aged 2 yrs and one who died 17/2/1959 aged 9 months: both causes were Croupal Diphtheria:  one stating 7 days the other 21 days.   So you are correct.
