Hi Liz Mike and Liz
I read with interest Liz's reply to Mike. I am tring to research Derbyshire
lead miner ancestors in the area of Llanddewi Brefi and Llanfair Clydogau.
My research has found that "Twigg" was a name in the Derbyshire Peak
district and so was "Abel" the surname I am researching. Some of these
families could have come to Llanfair Clydogau with the lead mines around
1760's. Have you an idea Liz where your Twiggs came from originally?The
village could have been Bonsall in the Peak District

Hello Mr. Gingell,
I saw your correspondence in the DYFED Digest, Vol 6, Issue 100 (quoted
The book you were talking about was written by my GG Uncle, the Rev. David
Williams. They lived at Esgaircrwys farm. The book is called Y Wladfa Fach
Fynyddig. I have scanned the book, so of anyone is interested to read it I
could email it. In it he describes what it was like as well as the people
who lived there in the farms around the area.
I would be most interested in a copy of your scanned book as I have
ancestors from that area, Surname "Twigg" and "Williams" for that
am fascinated to know what life was like for them.
I haven't been active in my research for a few years but I am getting my
records together to start again :)
Thank you very much for sharing your book.
Liz Nee Twigg
