Nant y Dderwen, Llanddewi Brefi
« on: Tuesday 08 June 10 11:07 BST (UK) »
Farmhouse buildings called Nant y Dderwen in Prysg and Carfan, LLanddewi Brefi  I think were once known as Efail Fach.  I'm tracing a John Davies, labourer son of John Davies, labourer who lived there at the time of his marriage in 1838 to Rachel Edwards, born Nancwnlle, Father David Edwards, Labourer
My interests are the Watkins family of Llangyfelach Swansea, C19, originally from the Gower.  Also Williams (stone masons) originally from Caio parish in the C19th.  Additionally looking at the Richards/Davies family of Cwmbyr Farm, Talley, Carmarthenshire C19th and early C20th.  any info helpful

I've stayed in Llanddewi Brefi in the past and visited several farms, but I don't recognise those names, sorry.

Probably your best bet is to contact the Ceredigion Library Service and ask about local history archives.

Higho in London
Matthews & Nash in Whichford, Warwickshire
Smoothy, Willsher in Coggeshall & Chelmsford, Essex
