David Harries of Dinas Island and Penrhyw was married to Jane Symmons whose
mother was Dinah Nicholas of the Parish of Llanychloydog, Pembs. David and
Jane also named a son (who died) Thomas Nicholas Harries. The mariner,
Thomas Nicholas, may have been a relation.
To all the Nicholas researchers......if anyone has any further information
about Dinah, other than her marriage to William Symmons of LlanfairNantygof
in the parish church of Llanychloydog (in the presence of John Thomas and
John Vaughan) in 1798 I would be happy to correspond.
Seemingly Dinah's children were Jane, William Symmons of Buckett,
Llanfair Nantygof, Thomas, Martha and Dinah Symmons.
If anyone can identify David Harries' true parentage.....he was born
Dinas.....I'd be grateful...unfortunately I have a couple of possibles.

With all this talk about Nicholases in Fishguard, here is one I found in
Pembrokeshire Record Office last week:
Thomas Nicholas of Goodwick, mariner, purchased a moiety [half] of some
property by lease and release on 30 Dec 1805. The details were:
1. David Harries of Dinas Island (vendor)
2. Thomas Nicholas of Goodwick, mariner (purchaser)
3. Thomas Laugharn of Fishguard, innkeeper (trustee)
Premises: moiety of messuage called Goodick, extending from the Quay to a
brook running by the South side of the tenement called Penrhiw
R.O. reference: D/JP/32
Thomas Laugharn(e), my ancestor, was a former mariner and his daughter Ann
witnessed the signing. More about him in a separate message.
