This suggests he was known as Corbet(sic) as late as 1860,as well as confirming a dual role as letter carrier and town crier.

The Powys baptisms for his children up to and including Harriett(1848) are given as plain Corbett,yet in the 1851 census they appear as Davies.There is also a Post Office appointment record for him in 1857 which gives him as Thomas Cubitt(sic) Davies,but contains no further information.

Curiously,despite there being no Thomas Corbett in the 1851 or 1861 census in Knighton,there is a marriage of Thomas Corbett to Anne Davies in Knighton in 1857.This seems the correct pairing from the record,as there is a John and Sarah Ashton in the 1861 census.It seems too early for his son to be married...

Knighton have a town crier festival, googling it may help, or may confuse, as the price family have seemingly held the post for four generations.

Although the little girl was killed in the narrows I don't think you can assume that the family living in the narrows in 1841 is the same as the rural postman in later censuses

Roger, thanks for your interest, and no I was not aware of this article, very interesting, I knew he was a town crier and post man though.

My thanks, but I already have a copy of this newspaper article, this TCD B1841-1918 was my Grandfather and was the son, of the Thomas Corbet[t] C1799-1804 that I'm really after.

Hi, thats strange, maybe I have the wrong B/Record for all his kids, as far as ancestry goes they are all under Davies, see Harriet's below. I will search FindMyPast for Powys Baptisms though, just to be sure. And yes, I have the 1857 Postal Record for him, seems ancestry mis-transcribed this, Cubitt, it's actually Corbet.

Name Harriet Davies
Registration Year 1848
Registration Quarter Apr-May-Jun
Registration district Knighton
