Welcome to Rootshat and a Happy New Year. Couple of newspaper snippets

The Bristol Mercury Saturday May 8, 1875
Sales by Auction - Lot 4
All those valuable RIGHTSof FERRY across the river Severn, in the TYTHING of PURTON and Parish of LYDNEY, Gloucestershire, known as the PURTON PASSAGE FERRY, with the Tolls, Fees and Dues arising and payable for, or in respect thereof, together with the substantial approaches thereto, also Two capital BOATS, one for passengers, the other (equal to about 10 tons) for merchandise, with the requisite gear, chains, anchors &c, and all and singular the appurtenances thereto belonging

Daily News Saturday October 18, 1879
The new bridge crosses the Severn estuary at Purton Passage where the channel is about a mile in width, and the tide rises to a height of 30ft, the current being at times very rapid and dangerous while at neap tides the mud is almost dry

Found reference to an 1827 inquest re a drowning but nothing for 1858

Pogle 1962,

I have a copy of the 1836 marriage and can send you an image if you let me have your e.mail address via PM.

Checked Glam FHS transcriptions of number of Parishes around Llangyfellach/Clydach for a possible birth for Daniel/David (including Ystradgynlais)- but no luck. Could be Daniel was born in Carmarthenshire/Breconshire - this area can be a bit fluid!!

The Glamorgan FHS transcriptions has 2 entries for the marriage ie.
Coslett, Daniel, of this Parish and Tamplin, Mary of this Parish, Llangyfellach 2 Jan 1836 (P,B)
Coslett, David of this Parish and Tamplin, Mary of this Parish, Llangyfellach 2 Jan 1836 (P, B, T)

The codes are P (with consent), B (Banns), T (Bishop's Transcripts)

The FHS Transcriptions also have 2 baptismal entries for the first child
Coslett, William, father Daniel Forgeman, mother Mary, bapt 15 May 1836, address Clydach
Coslett, William, father David Forgeman, mother Mary, bapt 15 May 1836, address Clydach

Have a copy of Daniel and Jennet's banns/marriage at St. Mary's Church, Margam and both are described as "of this Parish". This doesn't necessarily mean, of course, that they were born in the Parish. No help from the witness details on the marriage entry.

Checked the adjoining Parishes of Michealston super Avon and Aberavon for possible birth for Daniel -but no luck.

Did find the following burial in St Mary's, Michaelstone super Avon -
Daniel Daniel, 28 April 1813, age 62, address Constant. Date of birth, therefore, would be about 1751 and makes him a possible for your Daniel who married 1774?.

Can send you an image of the marriage record (if you don't have it already?)

The annual licensing session for the hundred of Wirral was held yesterday at the County Hall, Abbey St, Birkenhead -

The following persons appeared on the "black list" -
Aaron Hough, Brown Cow Beer House, Lower Bebington, fined 20s and costs on 5 August for opening during prohibited hours on Sunday.
The licences were all renewed with a caution to the holders.
