Bishops Transcript, Aberedw - PUGH
« on: Monday 05 May 08 02:06 BST (UK) »
I'm hoping that someone can do a look-up for me.

I am wanting the baptism of Charles Pugh - some time between 1730 and 1739 - at Aberedw.

I believe that the surviving parish registers for Aberedw, Radnorshire, begins in 1740.  So, the much desired baptism might be in the Bishops Transcripts.

There should be a baptism for a Charles Pugh, son of Jacob Pugh & his wife Margaret.

There might also be a baptism for a Charles Pugh, son of John Pugh & an unknown wife.

A look-up would be greatly appreciated.

Hi JD,

I know this is a really old post, but did you ever get anyone to look up this info you wanted?  I have a cousin who now lives in Aberedw and might be able to help.  Let me know if you still need it.

Hi Seattle,

I was drawn to your thread by the title, which referred to Bishops Transcripts for Aberedw.  I am trying to trace my 5 X great grandfather who was David Whitney and I think born around 1740 in Aberedw.  This date is only guesswork really, which I have based on the date of his marriage which I found to Catherine Price in 1762.
I know that the Parish Regs for Aberedw only go back to 1740, so it would have to be the Bishops Transcripts.
I wondered if your cousin visited the Archives at all and would be able to do a look-up on my behalf?  I would be extremely grateful.

Kind regards Diana

Hi Lanfi,

Sorry to have not replied before, I have been away.  Thank you for sending the details of Thomas Pugh's Will.  I have looked through it, although I can't make out what much of it says, but I can pick out the Whittney names.  I wonder if they are my rellies.  I thought at one point, that the Johanes looked a bit like 'James', as I have Jameses in my family, but that's probably wishfull thinking!  I saw that it said that Johannes was the son of Lomas - not english names - possibly scandinavian?

I would like to make a trip to Aberedw, when I can, as I have three relatives buried there: Thomas, David & Catherine Whitney.  There might not be readable memorial stones, but it would be nice to look and see.

Thanks once again for the information.

Kind regards Diana

Hi,
You can get the National Library of Wales to search Church records and Bishop's Transcripts at
http://www.llgc.org.uk/services/
You need to fill out an enquiry form (on-line) with as clear a request as you can. This means parish, fairly close date, and name(s). They will email a reply back to you within a few days, and if successful, you can order digital copies of the records. The copies cost a bit, but you can pay using a credit card.

Good Luck,

Llanfi  :) :) :) :)
