Denbighshire / Denbigh burials
« on: Wednesday 06 February 19 16:14 GMT (UK)  »
How would I go about finding a burial (or headstone inscription) for an interment at St Marcellaís Church Denbigh in 1844?  Iíve looked at Gravestone Photo Records for Denbigh but they all seem very recent, so I assume they are not completed yet. I am looking for a grave containing three members of a Parry family: Thomas (32 yrs) died Denbigh, buried 19th Jan 1801, his infant son Thomas, died Denbigh and buried 1798 and wife and mother Sarah died Llanfair DC in 1844 but Iím fairly sure she would have been buried with her family at St Marcellaís Denbigh. One of the objects of the exercise is to find her age at the time of death. Thanks DavidJ

The Common Room / Registration of a birth
« on: Thursday 03 May 18 14:03 BST (UK)  »
Apologies if this has been asked before but does anyone know when mothers on their own became able to register the birth of an offspring? I believe it is a fairly recent change, previously (eg. in 1940s) it was the father that had to register the birth.

FAO the Moderator, could you put this in the Resouces page?
The file contains bundles of useful information on Wills, Land Transactions etc etc submitted to the Powys Archives by various solicitors, covering 17c to recent times. Very worthwhile as a reference source.

Worcestershire Completed Look up Requests / Were there two Emilys?
« on: Tuesday 07 February 17 13:16 GMT (UK)  »
George Herbert Lewis born 10th April 1877 at Fieldhouse, Clent. His father is George Lewis a Coachman and his mother is Emily Lewis formerly Matthews. He is Baptised at Clent on January 27th 1878. He next appears in the 1881 census aged 3 in the household of Thomas Roberts at Birtley in Hatton, Church Stretton, he is grandson of Margaret (nee Lewis), I think he was here because his mother had died.
1881 Census for Belbroughton Worcs (nr Clent) there is a George Lewis (30) born Berkley, Shropshire (no Berkley in Salop so I assume Birtley) he is a horse breaker and living in the household of William Mountford, a Boot & Shoe maker, heís married to Williamís daughter Emily and they have an infant daughter (Lewis) aged 1 month (later Lizzie).
What I am trying to establish is did George Lewis marry Emily Matthews before Emily Mountford (he married the 2nd Emily on 7/3/1880).

Denbighshire Lookup Requests / Plas Efenechtyd, Ruthin
« on: Thursday 03 September 15 14:52 BST (UK)  »
Could some kind soul look up the 1861 census for Plas Efenechtyd. I think it was farmed by the eminent Welshman and poet Robert Parry, however since he also farmed at Plas Towerbridge (Turbridge) where he died in 1863, I would like to know who was at Plas Efenechtyd in 1861.   

Denbighshire / Faraway aka Plas Faraway, Llandegla
« on: Monday 13 July 15 11:25 BST (UK)  »
Iím looking for the occupants of Faraway (house or farm) around the mid 1800ís. The property still exists today and is just beyond Pentre Isaf on the Hafod Bilston track which runs from Pentre Bwlch to The Plough. At the beginning of the last century Captain Best lived there (1903 when it was known as Plas Faraway). In 1909 a Miss Dewhurst of Faraway donated an Altar Service book to Llandegla Parish Church. I am guessing that it was part of the Bodidris Estate. Surprisingly, there is no mention of it in the millennium publication: ďLlandegla Then and NowĒ. I would be interested if anyone has information about earlier occupants.
