Does anyone have access to the monumental inscriptions for Strata Florida
and Ysbytty Ystwyth who would be willing to check for me for the following
Edward Jones buried 14th April 1870, possibly Hafod Gau ,Ysbytty Ystwyth
(Strata Florida )
William Davies Bwlchyblaen Ponthrydygroes ,1914(Ysbytty Ystwyth)
Thank you ,
Just adding to the mystery of John and Sarah GEORGEs gravestone at the
above cemetery earlier this week, I discovered a third gravestone and I
have NO idea who or why she is part of the family group of three graves?
Does anyone know of an ODWEN DAVIES who is buried next to Sarah & John
George and who was living with them in 1939 at Bwlchmelyn? Odwen is
detailed as being born on 17 February 1917, single and described as a
domestic servant. The gravestone was in quite poor condition - very
difficult to read and in Welsh (which I don't speak or read), so tricky to
understand. I believe she died in 1940.
Odwen's gravestone was separate but contained within the parameter concrete
edging surrounding the George family plot.
Any comments, knowledge or thoughts would be much appreciated.
Best wishes, Sarah (in Northumberland)
I am posting this on the slim chance that an Australian cousin might see it!
In the 1950s, two Australian cousins of my grandmother came to see us in Swansea. Florrie Thomas ,single, and her sister Vera. They were about sixty. Their father, grandfather? was born in Penrith, Pembrokeshire, in the 1840s on a farm called Gomorrah. He was a Thomas ;William, Daniel, or Thomas. He became a sheep farmer in Australia.
Florrie lived in Eton St, Malvern. Vera had a daughter, Gwyneth, and granddaughter, Jane. They were in Perth. Jane was three in 1955.
It would be lovely to contact the family again. Cathryn
Nice to hear from you! Hope this message finds you well.
Yvonne has sent me a link to an obituary - I was taken aback by her speed. However, unfortunately it’s in Welsh, so I’ve asked the list if anyone can help me in terms of obtaining a translation. I’m so excited that there is an obituary! I’m hoping for some family history clues in the account. Fingers all crossed!
Thanks Pat. Best wishes, Sarah

The 1813-1837 Marriages are available to members and non-members on the Dyfed FHS website.

Are you aware that Dyfed FHS has published the marriages for 1813-1837? So if Samuel's first marriage was in Dyfed, it will be included.
The marriages are published by Hundred, in 21 volumes on fiche. The Society of Genealogists in London have copies.

I apologise for my post seems i didnt make myself clear and lots of
nice folk are hunting info for me.
PLEASE I know the family from the 1839 marriage to present day I have
all the census b d m it is the marriage prior to 1837 that
My question was...is there anywhere I can find information or get
records prior to that date.
I have all the children to modern time that is no issue at all
the issue is the mother of the 2 children born before the 1839
marriage he was a widower so obviously married prior to 1839 and the
age of the 2 children would indicate they were bn 1835
and 36 so
Go back to my original question how do I retrieve info for a
marriage prior to the1837 record s
I do appreciate your time and hate that my original message wasnt clear
Christene...yep with a pesky e not an i

The following is what I have on my 3xG Grandfather Richard REES, a
Tailor and wife Anne THOMAS. I would love to find their parentage and
get further back but that's not so easy in Wales is it.
I found the following on the IGI when Family Search was about all we had
online back when I started researching.
Richard REES married Anne THOMAS 5 Feb 1819
Anne REES d/o Richard & Anne christened 16 Feb 1819
Richard REES ditto 2 JaN 1820
Morgan REES ditto 27 Jun 1823
William REES ditto 1 Dec 1825
Richard REES ditto 1 Dec 1825
Elizabeth REES ditto 25 Apr 1828 (My great great grandmother)
Margaret REES ditto 7 Dec 1828 (maybe premature?)
Isaac REES ditto 4 May 1831
Lewis REES ditto 23 Sep 1832
Catherine REES ditto 28 Jan 1834
Margaret REES ditto 8 Aug 1836
John REES ditto 5 Mar 1839
I have the family in the 1841 & 1851 living at 'Pen-y-Geulan', Cwm Rheidol, Llanbadarn Fawr, Cardiganshire, and Richard REES sen. was a Tailor.
I had confirmation that I had the correct family when Elizabeth REES working in London married Charles DEATH who'd moved from Suffolk, they stayed there and raised their family until their grown sons needed work
and they travelled to Monmouthshire where they met up with the REES family who had done the same earlier, they met up in Rhymney, Monmouthshire.
Recently I found two more births, Jane REES born 1842 and Mary REES born 1845.
Does anyone connect with any of this family?
Regards, Catherine Moorey

I thought I had sent a message from the National Archives on Thursday about
this, but I am not sure it went.
Much research by a small dedicated team over several years has finally
resulted in an amended listing of all the miners killed in this disaster.
Several names on the original plaque on the Quay at Landshipping in the
parish of Martletwy have been amended and expanded, a very few have been
added and many ages of those killed have been amended. It is now clear that
no women or girls were killed in the mine, but at least 4 miners who died
were under the legal age of 10. Another 3 were exactly 10. Altogether, 40
miners were killed.
There will be a re-dedication service split between Burnett's Hill Chapel,
Martletwy and the quayside at Landshipping. These are the details of the
timings. The reason for the date is the 175th Anniversary of when it all
happened (but at about 3.30 pm in the afternoon).
If any members wish to attend, please could they let me know in advance so
that we can gauge some idea of numbers. I suggest you reply to my personal
email address to avoid too much traffic on the list over this.
On the Friday we will be meeting at a Hall in Lawrenny for more detailed
talks and discussions about this - and other aspects of family history
research in Pembrokeshire in 2019. Again, please let us know if you would
like to come along.
Sorry for the short notice - this only got under way properly at the end of
November and finalising items over the Xmas / New Year period is never easy.
But at least we now will end up with a significantly improved record of who
really died in February 1844 and how young many of them were.
