Howe, Radnorshire
« on: Monday 16 August 10 13:48 BST (UK) »
Hi All

I'm trying to find information on the wife of Frederick Boswell, Charlotte. I don't have any info on Charlotte except she was born about 1838 in Howe, Radnorshire, and in 1891 lived in a Gypsy caravan with her extended family in Merthyr Tydfil. This from the 1891 census.

Problem is, I can't find any reference to Howe anywhere! Is it known by a differant name now, or maybe it's now part of another town?

If anyone has any ideas where Howe is/was please post! Thanks a lot.

Howe could refer to Howey, a small village just south of Llandrindod Wells

Hope this is of help

That sounds like a possibility, thanks.

This may be their marriage:

Frederick Boswell and on the same page Charlotte Burns at Dudley in 1866 June quarter.

Hello

If the family were in Merthyr in 1891, this may be them in 1881 at 69 Brecon Road Tydfilwell, Merthyr Tydfil, Glamorgan:

Frederick Boswell  Head Age 80 born Burslem, Staffordshire      Cutter & Grinder
Charlotte Boswell  Wife Age 63 born Builth            Machinist (Seamstress)      
Lloyd Roberts       Son In Law Age 24 born Builth, Brecknock      Milkseller      
Annie Roberts   Daur Age 23 born Neath, Glamorgan     Housekeeper      
Maria Boswell  Daur Age 8 born  Wellington, Shropshire

RG11 Piece 5317 Folio 91 Page 6

I know Charlotte's age is 20 years older but Builth is only about 6 miles from Howey so the places match.

Best Wishes
Morgan

Hi Morgan

Thanks for your post. I think we've traced Frederick back to the 1841 census, and it looks like we've got Lloyd and Annie living in Aston in 1901.

So Howey is a real place then? I haven't been able to find any info on it. Perhaps it's been subsumed by somewhere else?

It's a real place and still there! Just g**gle Howey Llandrindod Wells, Powys LD1, UK
