Lion Street, Brecon
« on: Saturday 23 November 19 08:56 GMT (UK) »
This is the first time I have contacted anyone about Lion Street, Brecon.  My grandmother, Rosa Price, lived at Cantre-Selyf in Lion Street in the 1900's.  Any information anyone may have about the house or the family would be helpful. Thank you

Thank you for the information.  I can see that it is a large property so my grandmother may have been in service there.  I understand it has been a bed and breakfast but is now closed.

Probably a different person but I hope you won't mind me asking. My grandfather's sister was a Rosa Price born Llanfihangel Talyllyn in 1881. Do you have dates for your Rosa?
