Many thanks for those lookups. I fear that LETITIA DAVIES, Pauper is mine !
Lettice/ Letitia Davies' daughter, MARY DAVIES married FRANCIS LOGIN 1828 Walton West
. Pat kindly found for me a MARY LOGGIN HD U 58 Pauper, she is also in Long entry ,
Pembroke St Mary ( 1851 Census) I think this is Letitia's Davies' daughter. The
only other one that could fit would be Lettice Davies , wife of George Davies , flour
merchant and surely they wouldn't have allowed their daughter to live as a pauper in
the same town?
Can anyone help with ' Long Entry ', was it a road name? and also was a widow
classed as U or Unmarr , even if Letitia Davies never married , I know that Mary Davies
Following Gareth's advice ( thanks) , I now know that CI means ' sister of
' , though I must admit that before I looked it up, I did wonder if it meant
'certified insane' bad enough having a pauper without them being insane too!
Fanny Login, daughter of Mary and granddaughter of Letitia(?) married James Howell ,
who went from small farmer's son to being a wealthy and successful business man in
Cardiff . No wonder rather a lot of mystery has always surrounded Fanny's origins, I
suppose having a mother and grandmother who perhaps died as paupers wasn't exactly
something to be proud of in those days.
A couple of months ago I discovered that my 9th g. grandmother on my mother's
Nicholson side was a Lady Elizabeth Percy , daughter of the 7th earl of Northumberland.
this gave me an impressive line back to a fine collection of kings etc. My Davies and
Logins have brought me back down to earth again , with not one but probably two paupers!
A list of the other residents at the same address would be very interesting, if it
isn't too much bother.
Thanks again for the help,
