Herefordshire / 1841 census
« on: Friday 09 March 07 12:48 GMT (UK)  »
There's a Thomas Harding born 1811 in Bishops Frome, wife Maria born 1816, no other family.
There's also  a Thomas Harding born 1813 in Bosbury, with a household, none of which share his surname.

Llanbister seems to be rich in Thomas families.
John Thomas's were christened in 1733, 1734, 1746 and 1753.
Couldn't find his marriage.

Powys FHS transcription ol Llanbister parish Registers
November 24th 1779, William, son of John and Sarah Thomas was baptised by Mr David Lloyd.
BUT, there's a near identical entry for the corresponding week of November in the previous year. So either two identical families or someone trying to fill the registers in along time after the event, or maybe  he was baptised twice. (Nov 24th 1779 seems to have been a Wednesday.)

Unlikely that there would have been two drapers shops owned by Thomas's in one village.
http://www.thomas-shop.co.uk/shop_museum.html
From the above link
"The Thomas family bought the business in 1799 and they ran it until 1957.

The current fittings in the shop date to 1805, and you will find the shelves brimming with items that celebrate the period of time when the shop was active as both a drapery store and grocery store in Penybont."

Radnorshire / Re: The Ross, Radnorshire

Hi,
The town of Ross On Wye is in Herefordshire.
If you're looking for places called Ross in Radnorshire, pretty well every parish would have one.
Ross from the Welsh, Rhos, meaning moor, heath or plain

Odd how the Mantles crop up.

1841 Parish of Llananno, Brynrheeg, f5/p2

MANTLE, Anne, 19, Female servant, Y, 
MANTLE, Dorothy, 14, Female servant, Y,
If this is your Anne she may be in the same household, as dmjones' family who later moved to Pabllwyd

Best guess I can come up with after looking at other places enumerated nearby, is Cwm-y-Berllwyd
In 1871  it's enumerated as Upper and Lower Pepwchllwyd , 108 & 200 acres respectively.
1n 1861 its Upper Cwmpabuthlloyd and Lower Pabuthlloyd. 80 and150.
In 1851 its Blane Pabuthlloyd and Lower Pabuthlloyd( John and Naomi George in residence.)
