Im sorry it took so long to get back to you.
I seem to have misplaced my copy of that entry in the 1861 census, and my
Ancestry membership has recently run out.
So the only thing I can do for you at present is to ask another member of
the list if they would be so kind as to look it up for you.
Its the 1861 census of Cardiganshire and we are looking for
District: Berwyn and Croes
Township: Tregaron or Caron
living here are
John Morgans - 31
Margaret Morgans - 28
Anne - 7
Rees - 3
Margaret - 3 months
??????? Hughes - 18 - House servant
Jenkin Davies - 12 - Shepherd ????
We need th RG number and the name.

I have just read your email to Delyth (below). In the last paragraph you
mention that there was a HUGHES living as a servant at Glan yr Afon Ddu
farm in 1861 census, do you by any chance have the RG for that entry?
The reason I ask is that I have HUGHES in my tree who lived around
Aberystwyth. When I was a young child I remember being taken to a farm
around Aberystwyth, I have no idea where this farm was but it must have been
around Aber or at least not very far away from there, I think my aunt Alice
said it was a farm in the HUGHES family. My great grandfather who was
William HUGHES went to Ferndale from Cardiganshire, when his first wife died
he married got married again to Margaret FELIX and went back to Aberystwyth
and they had a son who I think was born in Aberystwyth, his name was Osborne
I am just wondering if this could be the same farm.
Thanks for reading this email.

It is ESSENTIAL that you read the Do's and Don'ts section of the list site at http://home.clara.net/daibevan/DyfedML.html BEFORE posting any messages to the list
Please begin messages relevant to only one county with the appropriate 3 letter county code.
Please give as much information as possible for the background to your question. It is frustrating for someone to spend time seeking information only to be told later that it was already known. Showing you already have some information may encourage a lister 'to go the extra mile' to help you find more.
