Denbighshire / Re: William Williams Llanwrst
« on: Thursday 30 January 14 09:12 GMT (UK)  »
Sorry folks you are going in the wrong direction  :).
I have a  pretty much full history of Williams parents and ancestors going back three generations, I also have birth ,Marriage and death certificates for most immediate family.
What I was hoping for was somebody to make the link going forward from 1919 maybe with one of their ancestors being either Elen or Martha.
There was another Sister Laura Ann who I met when I was a child in the 1950's , she was married and lived in Nefyn, as did William.

Hi Carol W. Williams parents were John born 1857 Llanwrst and Ann Thomas born Bettsw-y-Coed 1859
William was probably born Llanwrst as was Martha but they were baptised in Bettsw.
William grew up in Back Watling Street Llanwrst, a very poor part of the town at the time, the connection to Bettsw I think is sentimental, they met there and worked there in hotels.
Thank you for taking the trouble to look at this for me it is appreciated, I know a great deal about my Grandfather and his family and have been researching his "tree" for ten years or more. Would just be nice to find these two Sisters.
I was hoping a descendant of Martha or Elen might make a connection.

Denbighshire / William Williams Llanwrst

High, William was my Grandfather and was known as soldiermawr. He served in the 1st Battalion Royal Welch Fusiliers from 1906 until 1919 and then again in WW2.
My puzzle is that he had two Sisters Martha born 1885 Llanwrst and Nellie (Elen) born 1894, both alive in 1919 and mentioned on his demob papers. Martha was a domestic nurse at the Swan Inn Llanwrst in 1901 but I have no trace of her after that. Nellie was living in Denbigh Street Llanwrst in 1911 with her Grandmother Ann.
Needle in haystack time, does either of these two people ring any bells with anyone. I have not found a marriage or death that is certain for either of them.

Caernarvonshire / Re: Farms in Pistyll Nr Nefyn
« on: Tuesday 30 July 13 12:46 BST (UK)  »
Hi, I don't know about the pony trecking but my Mothers family farmed in Nant and Pystill for at least three hundred years. One of my ancestors farmed Celia Canol ,Pystill from before 1800 until after WW2, the farm is owned by an English Couple now. There were two farms in Nant, my family farmed Ty Canol (125 acres) from 1730 until 1925, the farm was originally owned by the Copper Magnate
Thomas Peers Williams. The other farm in Nant was Ty Hen I believe. The owner of Celia Canol in the early 19th Century John Griffith has a tomb outside of the church at Pystill ,St Beauno, and was the Church Warden there.

Caernarvonshire / Re: Anyone recognise this place?

There is an ancient monument on the track/road that runs up through the valley behind the village.
the photographs look very like it. If it is the same building there must be something published because a few years back when i was there there were archaeologists working on it.
