Trefeglyws
« on: Tuesday 03 August 04 08:46 BST (UK) »
I was wondering if anyone knows of a good site about the history of the welsh town of TREFEGLWYS?  Some of my ancestors are said to have come from there.  I have some information on part of my line but I would like to better research it and have copies of any proof possible.

The family name is Benbow (also seen as Benbowe, Bembow).  Part of the family left Wales for America in the first half of the 1700's.

Thanks for your help!

Hello Megan

Here's a link to the uK Villages site - I just typed in Trefeglwys, Powys:-

http://www.ukvillages.co.uk/ukvillages.nsf/villages/Wales/Trefeglwys-Powys

Hope it's of some help.

I see that you are researching BENBOW - well, most of my father's family are from Llanidloes which is literally next to Treferglwys and I have come across the Benbow name several time.  There are still some Benbow's living in Llanidloes now!

If there is anything I can look up for you do please let me know.

I think the Richard above should be a Mr!!!!


I have probably missed a few but at least these will keep you going for some time.

If you want their addresses and/or the census images let me know - but quote the RG10 etc. code  then I can find them again much quicker.

I have just remembered that my Nan's friend was called Mrs Benbow, and they both lived in Foundry Terrace in Llanidloes   ;D

Sandraanne,

I have just done a search on the "Family Search" site http://www.familysearch.org/Eng/Search/frameset_search.asp

Type in BENBOW in the surname, and select WALES for the Country and look at the results.

Your Pryce Benbow isn't there, but there are certainly a lot of other Benbow's - I thought it might be helpful.

Good luck with your search!

Jan
