I've just been deliberating over 'my' George Jenkins, when it suddenly
occurred to me, that maybe someone on the dyfed list might be able to give me some help /
This is the first time I have ever looked at the Maenclochog (Pembrokeshire) area /
Basically, I have a George Jenkins who was the father of my great great great grandmother,
Elizabeth Jenkins (b.between 1813 - 1815 either in Henry's Moat, Meline, Bletherston,
Llanycefn or Llysyfran - all the census returns gave a different place of birth!). In the
1841 census, there are two George Jenkins (shoemakers) who could have been Elizabeth's
father - the first one lived in Maenclochog (and I think this is our one as it's
fairly close to Llysyfran and Henry's Moat) and the other one lived in Haverfordwest
and didn't have any obvious family.
So, my George Jenkins (or Jinkens) I believe was born in about 1870. He died at some
point between 1841 and 1851.
1) Does anyone have access to burial records for Maenclochog or MIs?
2) Does anyone know if Maenclochog comes under Narberth or Haverfordwest?
3) Does anyone know anything of this JENKINS (or other spelling variations) family?
He may have been married to a Lettice who appears in 1851, in Maenclochog, as a Pauper /
widow Ag. Lab. at the age of 62 !?! My 'gut feeling' is that she may have been a
second wife or a sister in law? Lettice (born in Nevern,a widow and head of household)
also has a daughter, Martha who is aged 15 in the 1851 census (born Maenclochog). The
third member of their household is a Rebecca Morgan who is described as 'sister'
(also described as a Pauper who was born in St.Dogmaels).
I have no knowledge who my Elizabeth's mother was - ie. George's wife. Elizabeth
had two daughters named Sarah and Rebecca, so maybe one of these daughters, might have
been named after Elizabeth's mother?
So, any help / assistance on my GEORGE JENKINS from MAENCLOCHOG would be hugely
Thank you all for giving it some thought.
Kind regards and best wishes, Sarah in a sunny Northumberland.
