On the 1851 I think he is a horse keeper. Would that be down the pit?  I have seen them called Ostler too
It seems you can read a K as a B and an R
His bapt is transcribed as Bedward.
It's no wonder I'm chasing my tail!

I think William KEDERT was baptised as William KEDWARD in Llanwrthwl 3d Dec 1815 base born son of Thomas KEDWARD and Mary Pugh.
The next siting of William is his marriage to Susannah DREW on 9 Sep 1839 in Bedwelty. Both William and Susannah are said to be 'of Tredegar'.
The 1841 has them living in Charles St, Mountain Ash.
I'm trying to prove that KEDWARD, KEDERT KEDARD  are the same name. Last night I searched FindMyPast and the results in Kington showed the names  appear to be interchangeable, yet when I search again this morning, all I get is Kedward!
I'm hoping someone is chasing this family and can help
However - there is a fly in the ointment. William's marriage record gives his father also William a 'limer', so I wonder if he is a step parent to William?

Herefordshire / KEDERT ~ KEDWARD ~ KEDARD

I am chasing a William KEDWARD who was baptised in Lllanwrthwl, Brecon, son of Thomas Kedward of Old Radnor.
By the time William reaches Tredegar in Monmouth he is known as KEDERT. In trying to make sure this is the same person, I have found records in Kington, Hefds where KEDWARD and KEDERT and KEDARD seem to be interchangeable.
Kington is not far from Old Radnor so I am hoping someone familiar with Kington may be able to help me.
here's hoping


Glamorganshire / Re: Tag found in a garden in Gwaelod y Garth.

my Perry family lived at Gwaelod y garth in Mountain Ash from about 1892s to 1950s. Is this the same place?
Or are there several of same name?

Radnorshire / Re: Ancestry of David James of Llandegley/Glascwm (1660-1739)

Hello Sandra

I have William Lewis who married Esther Ann Davies from llandegley in Glascwm in 1827. William Lewis' father was also William Lewis a soldier and a shoemaker.
I cannot find a baptism for Esther Ann Davies anywhere. She was born around 1807-1812. One person thinks her father was also a soldier but I cannot verify this. Can you help at all?
Incidentally William Lewis Jnr migrated to Pennsylvania where he died in 1870.

 I have William Lewis who lived in Glascwm. He married Esther Ann Davies in Glascwm in 1827. William's father is also William Lewis a soldier and a shoe maker, later living in Trevethin. Family lore has it that William Snr had other sons we cannot locate. I wonder if your Thomas was one of them? Do you have any more information on him?

I am collaborating with a cousin in USA, neither of us can find her death here nor there, nor any migration.  Avril

there are some births registered in Presteigne which covers Glascwm where they used to live, but I think there must be two families for that many children.

I can't find a suitable death record in either Crickhowell or Presteigne, but I think I may have found her father and sister so something may come from that
thanks anyway
