Thanks Hanes teulu for the Welsh Newspapers link as I got such a lot of info about those “recalcitrant” Pritchards!

Dragon T, Aa
l of those Baptism details are just fabulous & of enormous help.

Now here’s the thing, I have 2 conflicting 1851 Census extracts from “The Genealogist”

“Tyne Te Qyay”, Aberffraw, Anglesey Ref: HO107,2520/F?

Elizabeth Roberts  Age  74 Born 1777 Head Birth Place Aberffraw, Anglesey Occupation Pauper
Mary Roberts     Age  50  Born 1801 Birth Place Aberffraw, Anglesey
Martha Roberts  Age  4    Born 1847 Daughter Birth Place Aberffraw, Anglesey
David Roberts    Age  15  Born 1836 Grandson  Birth Place. Clynnog, Caernarvonshire

As you say I think that Martha aged 4 was the Grand Daughter of Elizabeth as she must be the one that died at aged 10 and was the daughter of Martha born in 1823.
Mary also appears to be the same daughter listed with having Robert & Elizabeth as parents in 1802

“Reval Rally”, Bodedern, Anglesey Ref: HO107/2522/F?

Margaret Roberts  Age 64  Born 1787 Head Birth Place Glamorganshire. Occupation Pauper
Martha Roberts     Age 25  Born  1826   Birth Place  Glamorganshire. Occupation. Pauper
Eleanor Roberts    Age   5   Born  1846  Birth Place  Bodedern, Anglesey. Occupation Pauper
Robert Williams.    Age   3   Born 1848.  Birth Place  Bodedern, Anglesey  Occupation Pauper
Grace Jones          Age 8M  Born  1851  Birth Place  Bodedern, Anglesey  Occupation Pauper

The 2nd household agrees with previous details apart from the fact that now

a.   Head  is given as Margaret & not Elizabeth
b.   Age differs by 10 years
c.   There is no “relationship” mentioned in the 2nd Household & “Head” doesn’t mean she is       Martha’s Mother - maybe a coincidence!

I need to lie down with a couple of Panadol to get myself sorted from all of this!

So many thanks to you all  :) :)

Sorry for the headache! - I have misled you! There are two Martha Roberts.

In the 1851 census the first, living in Bodedern, is the mother of Grace, Robert and Eleanor, we assume Margaret, 64, is her mother.
The second is a house servant age 27, unmarried, b. Aberffraw living at Tyddyn ?????, Llangadwaladr (HO107, 2520, 195, 2). She is probably the daughter of Elizabeth and Robert Roberts baptized at Aberffraw in 1823, and mother of Martha Roberts (1847-1857).
