Hello,

Your post fascinated me as my Great Grandfather Thomas Williams with his Wife Elizabeth and their 7 children were also registered at The Mount Pleasant Inn, Broughton for the 1871 census. I would be most interested if you manage to find anything more.

Hi Malc69

Are you sure that your ancestors are registered in 1871 at Mount Pleasant Inn Broughton? I ask because when I read the 1871 census entry for the Mount Pleasant inn there was just John Edwards and his family there!!
Could your ancestors have been there in 1881 perhaps, because John Edwards had moved out by then.

Hello,

Can anyone help - my great grandfather Thomas Williams who was at the Mount Pleasant Inn died sometime between 1873 and 1881. I am hoping to visit the area later this year and would appreciate any advice as to where he might have been buried, is there a graveyard there?

Thank you in anticipation.

It would be too early for St Pauls, but he could be in Brymbo, if he was Non Conformist then you may have some trouble finding him.

This site  is good as long as there is a headstone.

I see the family are still in Broughton in 1881

Mount Pleasant Inn in Pentre Broughton (Moss) was still there in 1911.
Edward WYNNE (73) was the "beer house keeper" then.
He was living there with a 17 year-old "relative" called Edward David/Daniel WYNNE.
In 1901 Edward (62) was also a publican, but he was living at 11 Cross Road, Broughton, with son Edward David WYNNE (aged 7).
I thought that might perhaps be where the pub was, and looked in the 1964 Ordnance Survey map, which shows the large house on the corner of Cross Road and Bryn-y-Gaer Road to be labelled "Mount Pleasant".
In the summary book for that area, Edward WYNNE is shown at the Mount Pleasant Inn, No. 11, next to 12 Cross Road.
I believe that the Mount Pleasant Inn was at 11 Cross Road. The building is still there, but a private residence now.
Cheers,
John

PS: the Godfrey Edition of Old Ordnance Survey Maps for Moss Valley & Gwersyllt notes that E. WYNNE was at the Mount Pleasant Inn in 1909.
