Albert Price Radnorshire b 1876
« on: Thursday 23 September 10 16:49 BST (UK) »
I am trying to trace my grandfather's family. On the 1911 census he is shown as being born in Colwyn, Radnorshire but I can find no trace of a Colwyn in Radnorshire.

Does anyone have any idea about this please?

Hi and welcome to Rootschat

Have you only looked at the 1911 transcription or have you viewed the full image in case his birthplace has been mis-transcribed.  There is a Colva in Radnor

Where was he living in 1911 - Radnor or elsewhere

Looking at the 1881 census for Radnor

Albert E   b 1874 Disserth - parents Thomas & Margaret
Albert   b  1877 Glasbury parents Thomas & Mary
Albert b 1878 Llowes
Albert b 1878 Presteigne

Do you have a copy of his marriage cert showing his fathers name and occupation?

What was his wife's name in 1911 and how long had they been married.  Do you know her maiden name

Hi CaroleW

Thanks for the replies.

In answer to your first mail, I haven't checked the actual image so I will do this as you suggest. In 1911 he was living in Rhondda, Glamorganshire.

From your second mail, I don't have the marriage certificate yet but I am about to purchase a copy.
In 1911 his wife was Ellen, married for 8 years. Her maiden name was Kennedy and she was born in Bristol.

I have just checked and the Builth RD includes Disserth so he is probably the one b 1874 I listed above

That makes more sense of the information I have and also ties in with info from CaroleW.
