Church St, Knighton - Help Please
« on: Sunday 22 July 12 09:48 BST (UK) »
Looking for the dwelling/street number of the Joiners Arms Inn in Church St, Knighton. I know it had become a private dwelling by 1941.

A direct line relation, Richard LANGFORD, was the innkeeper there from sometime after the 1861 census until his death in early 1889.

I would dearly love to be able to see the exact location of the building on google earth or similar.

Many thanks for any help or advice,
Glen

Hiya, the pub was at 90-91, according to the 1881 Census.
Kind regards, Melissa

DearGlen,
I think i may be related to the Langfordís from Knighton in Radnorshire.
Are you a descendant also? Do you have much information on the family history?
Best wishes,
Ryan Langford

Hi Ryan,
Yes, my GGG Grandad John Alfred LANGFORD (s/o Richard & Mary PRICE and brother of Richard who had the Joiners Arms) emigrated to New Zealand in 1839.
Let me know how you think you fit in to the family? I may be able to help.
Cheers, Glen

Dear Glen,

My G Grandfather was called Frank (Francis) Langford and moved to Ebbw vale. He had at least 2 sons that I know of. William and Cyril ( my grandfather).
Donít know any more at the moment. How far along have you come?

Best wishes,

Ruan

I only have 1 Frank, born 1892, s/o Thomas & Fanny, but no descendants. I would not think that is much use to you. No Cyril and about 8 Williams 1743-1876
Sorry I can't make a connection for you.
Cheers, Glen

Thanks Glen,
My grandfather, Cyril Francis Langford was born in 1908 according to my dad. Not sure where though. His father, Frank was probably born in Knighton and probably still have family there. Frank married Hannah. The family probably moved to South Wales in the early part of the century to work in steel, iron or coal related industries. They settled in a place called Glan-yr-Afon near Beaufort, Ebbw vale which would have been Monmouthshire in those days.
There are still a number of us around in that town although I live in Greater London now.
I canít imagine the frank you have found to be my G grandfather however as he would only have been 14 when Cyril was born.
Best wishes, Ryan.
