Denbighshire / Morton Anglicorum.
« on: Monday 23 October 17 13:00 BST (UK)  »
I was sent the following info in an email.It may well be of interest to those with ancestors in the Johnstow/Ruabon area.

William Russell Jones "Morton Anglicorum" was a small area within "Morton Below". It was not a township in its own right. In his book "The History of Ruabon" Palmer himself is a bit vague about this! I read an article a few years back which said that the name came from a group of English immigrants who settled in the area in the early Middle Ages. It was they who started the first "industry" in Ruabon. They were iron workers who dug the iron ore and then extracted and worked the iron. The name Gyfelia comes from the Welsh "gefail" (a forge) / "gefeiliau" (forges) and those forges lay along the lane linking the Bangor Road and the Overton Road. They used coal from the Black Park area, which could make Black Park one of the earliest mining areas in Wales? When the forges were cleaned out, the spoil was dumped at the southern end of the lane in an area which became known, appropriately, as Cinders/Cynders/Sindre.After working there for a few generations these people left Wales and returned to England, I believe the West Midlands? It appears that they were "head-hunted" by a wealthy local landowner who offered them land there and probably a great deal of money? Today there is virtually no trace of their works in Ruabon.The name "Morton Anglicorum" only appears in one, or maybe two, censuses. In the others it was simply absorbed into Morton Below.

The Common Room / Thomas Roberts Marriage 1844.
« on: Sunday 22 October 17 12:34 BST (UK)  »
You find people married in all sorts of places,though if this one happens to be the correct one it would be a very strange one given where they are said to have been born and lived after their Marriage!

I'm looking for any detail of the Marriage of a Thomas Roberts and an Ann Owens said to have taken place at Llanarmon St Garmon,Caernarvonshire in 1844.

Staffordshire / Birth Of A Jane Mcfarlane.
« on: Monday 02 October 17 09:07 BST (UK)  »
As I'm very reluctant to enter "birthyear unknown" when adding people to my family tree,I'm looking for a birthyear for a Jane Mcfarlane who married my relative Joseph Whitley in what is given on Staffordshire BMD as a Civil Marriage(Wolstanton) in 1919.

Its slightly complicated by the fact that Joseph died in 1938,so she may well have re-married.
