Place of birth
« on: Thursday 11 February 21 21:21 GMT (UK) »
Hi all, hope someone can help.

I have a William Thomas bc1808 who in 1881 gives pob as as Hewes Harrow, Herefordshire. Living with married daughter Mary in the household of William Fisher in Monmouthshire, Trevethin, village of Garndiffaith. Age given of 78

1871 he gives pob as Yewes Arrow, Herefordshire, same place and village. Gives age as 63.

1861 age 52 in Llantrisaint with son William he gives Much Dewchurch.

William and wife Elizabeth ? can be found in St Weonards Herefordshire in 1841 where most of the family where born. They move to Monmouth by 1851 William is not with family wife Elizabeth bc1810 gives pob as Sollershope.

Have not been able to locate a marriage for the pair but firstborn was around 1833.

Does any with local knowledge have any idea where William may have been born?  Have looked at place names in Herefordshire, but nothing seems to fit.

Thanks if you can help

The only thing I can think of is a corruption of Dewsall and Callow, two small parishes just north of Much Dewchurch

The Herefordshire accent had me confused for a while after we moved here.

One that comes to mind is I aaav. woorshed  it.   (I have washed it)

I should have looked for the baptism first, rather than looking near much dewchurch.
