I am trying (unsuccessfully) to find a birth/baptism record for CHARLOTTE JENKINS, born c1825 in Cardigan.
This is what I know so far:
Charlotte married Robert Elliott on 6 July 1846 in Newport, Monmouth.
She was “of full age”. Her father’s name was James Jenkins, a weaver.
On the 1861 census she was aged 37, born c1824 in Cardigan.
On the 1881 census she was aged 56, born c1825, in Cardigan, Cardiganshire.
(Can't find her on the 1861 or 1871 census).
On her death certificate in 1885 she was aged 60, born c1825.
Tried Ancestry, Find my Past, Family Search, with no luck, don't know where else to look, can anyone help me please.
Thank you for your response Dai. It seems then that the college no longer
exists (listed under "defunct" colleges). With this being my only lead to
him, do you have any idea where I might find the old college alumni records
or information for the years around 1830 - the archives of when it was
Highbury College? Lea
I'm looking for any information I can find about a Benjamin WILLIAMS, a
distant relative of mine who attended Highbury College in London (for
dissenting ministers?) somewhere around 1828 to 1833, when he moved to
Tenby after "failing to get an invitation as pastor". I have no info.
about him before or after that time other than that he was no longer alive
in 1874. I believe he was born in Carmarthenshire (near Llanboidy) Wales
and guess that he was born about 1810. The only reference I have to
Benjamin Williams (including this information) was found in The Homilist
(sp) by David Thomas 1879 under "ministers I have known".
I read that in the 1830s Highbury college only had about 40 students so I
thought I might find something there. I contacted a Highbury College to
see if they had any alumni info for that time period but I apparently
didn't get the right college (The one I found was in Portsmouth). I
haven't been able to find the college or any contact information for it
online. Does anyone have contact information for that college?
Any information you might have (or any suggestions as to finding
information) would be very greatly appreciated. Thank you. Lea
Two items - 1. the archives of the old system are slowly being restored.
Currently we have 2013-2017, so if you want to se messages for those
years they are now available.
2. - An earlier message said that everyone must register for the new
system. That is not quite correct. Many of you may have realised that
as you are still receiving messages. You will only need to register if
you wish to change any of your settings on the list (or become a list
I have also been having problems since the end of March. I saw a notice in
the website saying that they were doing some work and the site may be down
for a couple of days, but it is still not working correctly. The only waI
have been able to axxess wils is via the advanced search but even that is a
bit hit or miss.
Has anything occurred at NLW online. I cannot obtain replies to any of
their catalogue, collections etc. - including Wills and Probate. This
is since 3rd April. I have sent them an enquiry
Covering the Welsh counties of Cardiganshire (Ceredigion), Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire.
This is a mailing list for the old counties of Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire & Pembrokeshire ie. the modern DYFED.
It is ESSENTIAL that you read the Do's and Don'ts section of the list site at http://home.clara.net/daibevan/DyfedML.html BEFORE posting any messages to the list
Please begin messages relevant to only one county with the appropriate 3 letter county code.
Please give as much information as possible for the background to your question. It is frustrating for someone to spend time seeking information only to be told later that it was already known. Showing you already have some information may encourage a lister 'to go the extra mile' to help you find more.
