A location I can't decipher
« on: Wednesday 24 November 21 10:09 GMT (UK) »
Hello All,

Here is a record of the burials of Sophia Jane, a daughter of George Games and probably his wife  Elizabeth Games, in the Talgarth Breconshire parish records.
The family seems to be distinguished from other Games families in the area by a notation in parentheses.
It is almost certainly a location, part of Talgarth or maybe a manor.
I would be very grateful for any help in identifying the words circled in the attached...

Thanks!

Llanfi  :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

Not that it helps the translation but the burial records are from the adjacent St Peter, Glasbury

Pulling up the original record and comparing the letters, It looks like Cliron

I agree that it begins:  Cliro_

I think the last letter is w, although it's not certain.

I agree it is written Clirow. Modern spelling is Clyro. 8 miles from Talgarth, near Hay-on-Wye.
