As a newcommer to this list I am just venturing into my Thomas line,
which seems to stem from the areas around Trelech, Mydrim and Cilrhedin
My gggrandfather, Benjamin Thomas married a Hannah Thomas who was born
about 1802 in Cilrhedin. Benjamin is listed on my ggrandfather's
marriage certificate as of Bwlchgwyn, Cilrhedin. I have found a farm in
Meidrim named Bwlchgwynt which seems to be run by Thomas's at that time.
I believe my Benjamin to be the brother of a Samuel Thomas who was born
about 1798 and who was still alive in 1881 listed as a retired farmer
born in Cenarth, this Samuel had a daughter Margaret who was born circa
1824 (and who became the mother of Sir Samuel Thomas Evans).
Does any kind person have access to the 1841 and/or 51 census for the
area which may help me to locate some of these names?
