Anyone heard of a place called 'Treborzed'?
« on: Tuesday 09 August 05 17:49 BST (UK) »
I have an old family document (?from about 1850) which states that Thomas Lewis was born in 1765 at 'Treborzed, Brecon'. I have been told that there is no letter 'z' in Welsh, and therefore there can be no place called 'Treborzed'. However I have come across a place called 'Trebersed' on the internet, but that is in Carmarthen...have the borders of the counties changed significantly over the past 150 years? Or is 'Trebersed' a relatively common name that could have been the name of the family farm?

Any suggestions??

Thanks!
Kirsten

Hi Kirsten

Have you solved this one?  Very mysterious!

No doubt you have tried this , but

http://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/BRE/index.html

might help?

all the Carmarthenshire references on Google seem to point to the same place, so maybe it would be worth e-mailing them?  Can't hurt!

kind regards, Arranroots  ;)

Hi there,
the only thing that sounds remotely similar to me is 
Treberfydd near Langorse?

I believe the name of the place you are looking for is Trebarried Brecon situated on the side of the A470 Brecon to Builth Wells road in the Parish of Llandefalle.
William Shakespeare may have stayed there in 1595 and wrote "Midsummers Night Dreams"
Look up website Trebarried Llandefalle Powys and BBC Mid Wales - William Shakespeare
