Where was Owen in 1871?
« on: Saturday 31 March 18 16:27 BST (UK) »
I have Owen Pritchard (born 1833) in every census from 1841 to 1901 but I can't find him anywhere in 1871.

Born in Dolyddelen, he married Ellen Davies (born c 1831) in 1854 in Llanwrst.  They have children Ellen (1857) Catherine (1858) and Ann (1866) and latterly grandchildren David (1876) John Owen (1879) and Margaret Ellen (1880).

Where did they all go in 1871?

In 1861 they were at    Tydu     Esgorebrill Eglwys Fach RG09 4304 61 11

 and in 1881 they were at  Glan Y Wern  Llandrillo-Yn-Rhs (Denbigh)  Denbighshire  RG11 5582 79 5

I know they must be there somewhere but I just can't find them.  Can anyone help?

Thank you!

It looks as if they might be in the Llanrwst RD in 1871

RG10/5677/43/8

Thank you!

I'd searched on both Ancestry and FindMyPast and neither one showed this one.

Doing my husband's tree is certainly honinh my north Wales geography!  ;D

Just found them on Ancestry by reference.  They've been mis-transcribed as Rickard.

Oh dear - I used the other channel  ;D

If they'd given you Richard it would have been more or less correct as Pritchard is the contraction of the patronymic form - ap Richard - son of Richard.
