Gelliddraenog farm
« on: Friday 22 January 21 18:51 GMT (UK) »
Hi

Is anyone able to find Gelliddraenog farm (probably Hengoed area of Llanelly) in 1841 or 1851 and who was living there?

Thank you

Roy

there's this about Cornelius Rees mentioning Gelliddraenog

https://newspapers.library.wales/view/3201842/3201844/5/

After the death of his father, they moved to Gellilysgedd. By the time of this article only 2 of the nine children still alive, one being Mrs Samuel of Bryngwynbach.

I'm sure there will be someone around to translate the article.
Cornwall: Allen, Bevan, Bosisto, Carnpezzack, Donithorn, Huddy, James, Retallack, Russell, Vincent, Yeoman
Cards: Thomas (Llanbadarn Fawr)
Glam: Bowler, Cram, Galloway, James, Thomas, Watkins
Lincs: Coupland, Cram
Mon: Cram, Gwyn, John, Philpot, Smart, Watkins
Pembs: Edwards (St. Dogmael's)
Yorks: Airey, Bowler, Elliott, Hare, Hewitt, Kellett, Kemp, Stephenson, Tebb

Thanks, I have come across this article. There is another reference I have of an older brother of Cornelius, must be John, as his other older brothers David and William are accounted for, taking over Gelliddraenog after their parents moved to Gellilysged. It also states the older brother married 1811. I was hoping I could still find John there (at least in 1841).

Managed to find it, HO 107/1379/9. A Rees Thomas age 35, a Carpenter were living there, but think I have found John Rees living instead at Gellygaled Fawr on the next page.
