Can't answer. Why is Wales lumped together with England?

Sadly the Welsh newspapers made mincemeat of his name.  Casnodyn means 'footnote'

Quote from last post:  "Mr W Rees (with the name I canít find anywhere else) was a Baptist Minister in Stroud Green, London. He gave the funeral address.  I wonder if there was a connection through the Baptist church."

Just in case you want to look at him further, his name was Rev. William Casnodyn Rhys.  He had a colleague, Rev. Sydney Gelson Morris at the Holloway Baptist Church but this man was born in Cornwall. Amended born Portsea

Searching for an Ann Gadsby (fuzzy matching) civil death in England just brings up the one:

Leicester Sep-Oct-Nov 7a/157.  Recorded age 64  :-\


Disregard post. Silly me looking for Ann

There really are a lot of men by the name of Richard Jones in that area!  Are you specifically interested in Richard Jones and Ellenor Williams who were married 1838 at Llallugan and lived at Nant gwyllt after 1851?

I notice this Richard was a widower at the time of his marriage and came from Penrhosydd, another farm owned by the Rev. Herbert.  Havenít checked but think itís in the Llanwyddelan area.  In 1841 a Morgan family lived there. 

I have also had estate records from the NLW, but as DCB says mostly names and rents.

Hi tjlowe,

Looking at the Tithe Maps produced around 1845 Ė 1850 there were several adjacent farm properties in the parish of Llallugan leased by a Richard Jones.  Thatís a lot of land to manage for one family so possibly more than one man by that name at the time? or maybe father and son? Checking against the censuses, particularly 1851, may tell you more.


Nant gwyllt -  house and land ~60 acres
Tynewydd  house and land ~ 80 acres
Cwm Ė house and land ~37 acres

The landowner for all three was the Reverend John Arthur Herbert.  Link here Ė toggle to the NLS 1888 Ė 1913 map.  Clicking on the blue pointers will list the various fields and respective acreages

Agreed.  Can only think that 1. the letter was never sent or 2. Madge had access to Mrs L Morris' effects after she died.

A long trawl through the Wills for a female Morris?   >:(

Suggest putting the elusive Mrs M. to one side for the time being and ordering a pdf of Florence May Wolfe's birth cert to see if the date of 28th Jan 1901 matches.
