Pont y blew was/is only a small collection of scattered houses around the banks of the Ceiriog before it joined the Dee. We used to go for walks down there and then over a humped bridge and up a steep lane to Ifton Colliery and on to St Martins.

The Forge itself had about 4-6 terraced cottages adjacent to it. My mother's mother was born there. I have quite a few photos of it.

Interesting that one of my father's relatives (via the Cash family) lived there too.

Just found a tiny picture that I took of the houses at the Forge, Pont y blew:

I donít know if this has any relevance,but there is a will at NLW for James Cash,Halton,Chirk,1844.
GRO record gives him as 75.

The tithe maps also have some fields occupied by a Thomas Cash;  close to Black Park/Halton -I  think he's one of ours. Not sure about the James. I'll need to delve into my notes. Also will have a read of it. Thanks for the ref.

I researched this line in the old days when the info online was sparce. LDS info on Chirk was very limited so had to get info from Denbighshire  Archives and Aberystwyth.   I also had help from my local contacts and Clwyd FHS members and booklets.

Not sure that he's one of ours;

Buried 11th January 1844m Chirk I must have looked at him before as it has a tick opposite it. Maybe it was for the young James Parry, who was on the same page.

Also

James Cash bpt 8 April 1769, St Martins. Parents - John (carpenter) and Ester. I assume that's the ref to the land at Rhosweil in the will.

A bit more in my notes:

1762 Edward Cash bpt st Martins s of Richard  (carpenter) and Mary
1765 Ann Francis bpt Ruabon d of Thomas and Ann

Richard  and Mary also had a son, John, bpt 1759, St Martins. Abode - Rhos y Llan. Daughter, Martha, 1749, daughter Mary 1746, Margaret, 1755, Ann 1758, Thomas 1744, Catherine 1752,

Possible death for Richard, St M, 1808, aged 92 (Ifton, so ties in with Rhos y Llan). Mary - 1784 and 88 but no info.

Just putting it up for ref.
