1851 Census entry Aberystruth Wales
« on: Thursday 08 April 21 00:31 BST (UK) »
Hi,

I have an location entry in a Census for Monmouthshire Wales that I can't decipher, it was written in 1851 for Aberystruth Wales. The first part seems to be "Glyn" but I can't decipher the rest. I think it is a town or village

Please see attached

Any help will be greatly  appreciated!

could you give the census ref, please. The clip is a bit small.

Enlarged in Photos. I think it's Glyn Tan du.

Can't find it in the Gazeteer but Monmouthshire is Sir Fynwy and I wondered if it was a Glyn + Fanwee (an anglicisation of Fynwy) but can't find it or Glyntandu.

Hello Everyone!

I thought this would be an easy one...

I have searched high and low and can't find Glyn Tan du.

However, Glyn means valley and Nant means river, and ddu is black in Welsh.

so Glyn nant ddu would mean "valley of the black river" not a bad name for the a place with a river running with coal dust in the Aberstruth/Nantyglo area!

Anyway, we all have other things to think about, so I will leave it there

With many thanks and best wishes

Stay safe!

Could it be this one

It's closer to Abersychan than Aberysrtruth
