The LDS films of the BT's (Bishop's Transcripts) for the parishes of
Llangrannog and Penbryn cover the years you need to locate his baptism, and
will probably turn up the baptisms of his parents (if local) and other
siblings, if any. BEYNON will show up like a sore thumb amongst all those
EVANS, DAVIES, etc. I would also suggest ordering the 1841 census films for
these parishes, and see who was living at those places then --- might turn
up his grandparents, as well.

This is a first posting--please bear with me.
My grandfather, John Beynon, was born 31 Jan 1849, according to the family
Bible. He is said to have been illegitimate. I have, variously,
Brynhoffnant, Llangranog-obit, Ffynonfendigaid-Bible, and Penmorfa, CGN
as birthplaces. I have found him in the 1851 census as a 2 yr old
next to a home named Ffynonfendigaid, 1861 as a worker next to a home named
Brynhoffnant, all in Penbryn parish. On his marriage certificate(1869) he
gave his father's name as John Beynon, though at that time he was living
his fatherinlaw as an apprentice. I THINK I have checked all the
IGI, chapel records I know of, etc. What else can I do to find his parents
shall I give up?
