Thank you and yes it does help.
I have a copy of my grandmothers birth certificate and her mother is
named as Mary Griffiths,formerly Harries. On the 1881 census her
birthplace is given as Manorbier. The rest is guesswork I'm afraid.
However, I do remember my mother talking about an Aunty Fanny and
she often spoke of holidays she spent in Manorbier as a child. I will
have to wait until I cancheck the 1841 census.
