Thanks for this information David - very much appreciated.
Can anyone help with an English translation of the Welsh bits please?
If you are interested in people called 'Whitlock Williams' from the
Borth area, I wonder if this could be a relative (from Llandre
Churchyard, just outside Borth). A seafarer, of course:
J106 (Dark grey polished granite with gothic shaped top decorated with
bunches of grapes and vine leaves around Bible and cross. Bottom
corners decorated with lilies and within slate kerbs)
Er serchus gof am/ HENRY WILLIAMS/ Eamyn House Borth/ hunodd Ebrill 30
1891/ ac a gladdwyd yn Philippeville/ yn 53 mlwydd oed.
Hefyd am/ anwyl(sic) briod yr uchod/ MARY ANN WILLIAMS/ hunodd Awst 40
1910/ yn 88 mlwydd oed.
Hefyd/ JOHN WHITLOCK WILLIAMS/ anwyl fab i’r uchod/ collwyd ar
fordaith yn yr/ Ocean Belle Rhagfyr 31 1899/ yn 31 mlwydd oed.
Dedwydd yw y rhai a fyddant/ feirw yn Nghrist.
There are a few more WHITLOCKs (more recent ones) in area K of the
churchyard, but one could presume that the name has been passed down
through a family connection:
K36 (Low light grey polished granite decorate top left and right with
flowers and within granite kerbs)
Er cof annwyl am/ THOMAS WHITLOCK DAVIES/ Hafan Aberayron/ hunodd
Mawrth 15 1947/ yn 40 oed.
Mi a ymdrechais ymdrech deg.
K37 (Low grey polished granite within rough granite kerbs)
In loving memory of/ my dear husband/ HENRY WHITLOCK WILLIAMS/ who
passed away Sept 3 1950/ aged 42 years.
Rhai a ddysgynant mewn llongau i’r/ môr, hwy a welant weithredoedd yr/
Arglwydd ac efe a’u dwg i’r porthladd/ a ddymunent.

Just read your extract from The Cambrian 4 July 1840 - and my heart
skipped a beat when got to the last entry. Whitlock Williams MUST
be one of my ancesters!
I have a Whitlock Williams who was born 1830, the son of Edward and
Mary Williams who both originally came from Aberystwyth. Is there
any way I could get more information? Would there be further
announcements which might include mention of family members etc?
I'm now hoping I can find other Williams' in Marine Terrace in the
1841/51 censuses but with such a common surname it may be difficult
to establish a definate connection.
!. Can anyone please supply the address for me to obtain information
relating to Whitlock's birth approx 1767 or death in 1840?
2. Does Marine Terrace still exist?
