Cymraeg - Welsh Language / Linc: Beibl Cymraeg 1588 Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru
« on: Tuesday 19 April 05 20:23 BST (UK)  »
Cyhoeddwyd y cyfieithiad Cymraeg cyntaf o'r Beibl cyfan gan gynnwys yr Apocryffa yn y flwyddyn 1588. Gwaith William Morgan, 1545-1604, ydoedd, gŵr a aned ym Mhenmachno, Conwy ac a raddiodd o Goleg Ieuan Sant yng Nghaergrawnt. Argraffwyd y gyfrol ffolio hon mewn llythyren ddu gan ddirprwyon Christopher Barker, Argraffydd i'r Frenhines, ac fe'i bwriadwyd i'w defnyddio mewn eglwysi yn hytrach nag yn y cartref.

Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru:

Hello kind folks! I am trying to find out more information on my ancestors 1st wife who died after giving birth to one of their many children.

She may be enumerated on the 1851 Gloucestershire census as Eliza Lavinia Lush or Lusk & may have been born in the Bristol (Barton Regis St Philips Jacobs District or Clifton areas) around 1847, this year is approximate. Eliza may have had a brother George but I am not sure.

She later married an Irish man William John Park who was born c.1845. When they were married they lived in 5 Catharine St Barton Regis, this was the family  home for many years even after Eliza's death he remained at this address with his 2nd wife Elizabeth Taylor from Yeovil Somerset.

Sorry the information is scant, but I do not have any more information on this soul.  :-\

Kindest Regards and thanks for any assistance.
