Griffith Powel born Dolbenmaen about 1806 to 1809
« on: Monday 25 September 17 18:25 BST (UK) »
Looking for the family of my great grandfather Griffith Powel born around 1806 -1809. Moved to Pembrokeshire as a young man as a quarry slater and married in 1828. Pembrokeshire censuses give his place of birth as Dolbenmaen Caernarvonshire. I have discounted Griffith Powel Bapt in Llanfihangel-y-Pennant  1813 since he was still in the 1841 census in Caernarfonshire.. Can anyone help please as I live 100miles from the record office.
