Subject: [DYFED] please could someone help us? - 1891 census
We wonder if anyone has access to the 1891 census for Cardigan or
Tregaron and would do us a huge favour in looking something up.
We are looking for the whereabout of a family with a child called
Thomas JAMES aged about 10, and his brother called David Lewis
JAMES aged about 2. They may have had another brother (probably
the oldest but we don't know) called William JAMES. The father
is called William JAMES and his occupation was probably related
to mining, however we do not know when he died - so he could have
already died. We do not know the name of the children's mother.
We really would be so grateful if anyone could help us with this.
