Hello List from David Gilroy in St.Albans .
Can anyone help me with finding any children of Benjamin and Rachel Lewis (farmer )
probably in the St.Clears area in the very late 1700's or early 1800's ?
In the 1841 Census they were at Dolpwll , Penrydd,Pembokeshire .
Benjamin died there in 1842 aged about 62 and Rachel also there in 1847aged about 67 .A
daughter Phoebe LEWIS living with them is known from a later Census to have been born in
St.Clears ,Carmarthenshire in 1817 .They had all lived at Dolpwll from the mid
1830's- before that the following clue .
I appear to have found Phoebe on the igi as follows :-
Febe LEWIS chr 25 July 1817 at Bethlehem Ind.Congregational ,St.Clears ,Carmarthen of
Benjamin LEWIS and Rachel .
There is little else obvious and as Phoebe was probably the last of Benjamin and Rachel
's children - where are the rest ?
Any ideas and possibly a marriage of Benjamin LEWIS to Rachel ??? around 1800 greatly
I am awaiting arrival of some Dyfed FHS fiche but they may not be early enough - hence
this query .
Thanks and best wishes ,
David Gilroy .
