Spelling of Llanfair Talhaiarn
« on: Friday 06 January 06 18:32 GMT (UK) »
The above spelling is taken from an old map of Denbigh and Flint.

On Gen UKI the spelling is Llanfair Talhaearn. Can anyone let me know if this is the same village, and if so, which is the correct spelling?

Thanks

Val

Hi Val,
Talhaiarn is the correct spelling.   Talhaiarn was a renowned bard, musician and architect. He was made a bard at the 1869 Bala Eisteddfod.  As well as poetry he wrote two different melodies for  the song 'Men of Harlech'.
We  call the village Llanfair TH !

Thank You Titch do you know the village well, I was wondering if it had a school, I thought I might write to the head telling of what little I know and seeing if she or he might be intrested in researching my gggrandmother, or at least the time she was born in to the village, do you think that cheeky.

Regards Valerie

Hi Val,
The Old school in Llanfair TH is now a community centre. This was a school owned by the Church (St Asaph Diocese) so possibly the records will be with them.  The current school is called Ysgol Llanfair Talhaiarn, and comes under Conwy Education Authority.  You could always write to the Headmaster at Ysgol Llanfairtalhaiarn, Llanfairtalhaiarn, Conwy County. Youhave nothing to lose!
I will contact you in a pm with some links where you might get some further information.
Cheers
