The photos of Cilcain were great to see as my gr/gr/grandmother was born there in 1831.
Does anyone know what the population was back then

Thanks for your reply,

 I had imagined it to have been a small village back then, but  I've read there were mines near there so maybe there were a lot of  miners living  there.
