Caernarvonshire / Re: Llanllyfni address for Parry family
« on: Monday 08 November 21 14:41 GMT (UK)  »
Looking at the 1861 census, I would say Ty'n Llan is the house next to the church

https://www.google.com/maps/@53.0439534,-4.2827425,3a,75y,341.88h,92.92t/data=!3m6!1e1!3m4!1s8pb1S1Qyrp165G2sHH80LQ!2e0!7i13312!8i6656

I would agree as Tyn LLan translates to next to the church Ty'n = next to; Llan = Church whereas Llwyn = bush or brushland

I've also followed the family to 1881 (Daniel, their son) and Ty'n Llan is recorded right next door to the Rectory which is shown in the map linked above... the census then continues up Rhedyw Road which is the main street up from Rectory towards Fort Tavern.

I also tried google and here is the current address  Tyn Llan,  Rhedyw Road, Llanllyfni, Penygroes, Llanllyfni, Caernarfon, Gwynedd, LL54 6SN.  There are still Parry's living at the property today.   I wonder if they are related ?

EDIT - Daniel livesthere up to 1901 but the name has been mistrancrbed in 1891.   He is easily found in 1901 on FindMyPast but not A*y.   N

arthuruk - Thank you so much I found them in the Caernafon & Denbigh Herald 19/09/1879 and it gives their addresses! which confirms what I thought.

They are 539 so probably registrars.   Will order the certificate.
Again, thank you

The Common Room / Church or Register Office wedding ? Help please

Good afternoon everyone a very quick question please.

Is it possible to distinguish whether a marriage took place in a church or a register office from the Marriage Index.

Great grandparents married in the Ffestiniog registration district during the Sept quarter of 1879.

Very easily found - Jeremiah Jones and Margaret Roberts both on FreeBMD and FindMyPast.  There's no parish marriage on FindMyPast but the area is very hit and miss as to which parish is there and what dates are on it.

Before I go to the expense of buying the certificate I thought I'd ask here to see if it was posible because if its a church wedding I still live locally enough to go and view the parish registers.   

Thank you very much.

I also had family in the Trealaw area during those years ...my immediate ancestors moved to Clydach Vale but others remained in Trealaw and surroundings.
following with interest

If this record the OP has is one of these Maternity cards - I believe it would also detail previous miscarriages or stillbirths.

U.K. birth certificate would not give medical details regarding ether mother or child, number of previous pregnancies, etc.

Thirty years ago (pre computerised records) I was given a white card (about 6"x8") to be brought to all ante-natal appointments. It recorded name, age, date of birth, number of pregnancy & NI number & possibly due date). At each appointment (midwife, doctor, hospital) was written the date, number of weeks of pregnancy, blood pressure & weight, blood results. If I'd been admitted to hospital (for high blood pressure, bleeding or any other reason) there would have been a notation made at the time.

My card (early 1980's) was yellow on the outside and white inside and yes had all the information listed above.   I even recall seeing my Mum's card from her pregnancy with me - hers was buff coloured on the outside - I recall quite clearly a notation saying "elderly primagravida" she was 35!! I wish I knew where it went.
Good luck in your search
