Radnorshire / Re: Is Norton near Cefnllys?

Thank you for your response.  I have not been working on genealogy for several years due to eye surgeries, moving, etc.  I hope to get back to soon so may contact you in the future.

Thank you both for the information.  I will follow through on your suggestions.

Lancashire / All Saints Church Cemetery in Chorlton-Upon-Medlock

Is there any way to get a transcription of a headstone in All Saints Church Cemetery in Chorlton-Upon-Medlock?  I am looking for Dennis Prendergast buried May 26, 1846.

Thank you.  I'll follow up on this.  I very much appreciate your continued assistance.


Dorset / Re: Portland Prison, Dorset convict information?

Thank you very much for the information.  It always astounds me what is available.  I'm not sure they will have the information since Alfred was in the prison in 1881 (their records seem to end much before that), but I will e-mail them to find out.  However, I may be able to use their military information for another ancestor.

Again, thank you.


Lancashire Lookup Requests / Locating two streets in Chorlton-On-Medlock in 1871
« on: Saturday 29 March 08 05:54 GMT (UK)  »
Does anyone know how to locate 14 Back Temple St, Chorlton-Upon-Medlock (aka Chorlton-On-Medlock) for 1871?

Same request for 1 Taylor's Ct, Chorlton-Upon-Medlock.

I find relatives at these 2 addresses in 1871 but cannot find them on any map.

Thank you.



Thank you for the links to the maps of the Clun area.  Very interesting!  I did find one of the towns on my list and, based on the spelling of the other towns, it appears they are to the west (Gaelic sounding).  Equally important, I was able to see the relationship of other towns I knew how to spell.  They are very close to one another and gives me an idea of the area where my ancestors lived.  I especially liked seeing the forests and other geographical information.  I am saving the link for future reference for other areas where I have ancestors.

Thank you, again.

Sue & KMO:

Thanks for the feedback.

To answer Sue's question, I cannot locate her in the 1841 Census.

I am in California and have an LDS center 5 minutes from my house.  I have ordered Parish Register films for several other areas (takes 2-3 weeks) and had luck finding information on them that wasn't on the indexes so I think I will order the films for Norton and Cefnllys to see what I find.

I will also try the NLW as well.

Thank you for all the advice.

Thank you for the information Alan and Sue.

18 miles seems a far enough distance that someone would not state they were from Norton if they were actually born in Cefnllys unless Cefnllys was a small village and Norton was a larger town.  In Googling Cefnllys, it appears it went into decline in the 1800's so maybe it hardly existed when the 1851 Census was taken. 

If you (or anyone else) is familiar with the area, can you give me your thoughts?

Do you think the National Library of Wales could shed some light on this or do you know of a genealogical or history association that might be able to help?
