Dear Yvonne and Angela,
My little Camrose book does mention the Berry family.
Chapter II headed Ann Boleyn, Landlady....Camrose Mill was apparently
amongst her possessions....she was created Marchioness of Pembroke prior to
her marriage to Henry VIII.
Also Aymer de Valence, Earl of Pembroke, had owned a great deal of property
in the Camrose locality.
The last paragraph of this chapter, which I had overlooked..reads "Camrose
people are proud of their association, however remote, with the first
Viscount Camrose, who was formerly William Berry, a
member of the well known Camrose family of that name. With his brother
Gomer (later Lord Kemsley, Lord Camrose became one of the most powerful
newspaper magnates of Fleet Street,
controlling the Daily Telegraph and several other influential publications.
For years in the 1920's and 1930's, Mr. R. T. Griffiths, headmaster of
Camrose South School, wrote to Lord Camrose,
seeking support for school funds - for Christmas parties, summer outings
etc. - purely on the strength of the name, and it was said he never wrote in
Bettye Kirkwood, Australia.

Hello Angela and List,
I have found the following Llewellyn/Berry marriages at Camrose:-
John Llewellyn married Elizabeth Berry at Camrose Parish Church June 1805.
His sister Elizabeth Llewellyn married John Berry at Camrose Parish church
January 1806.It is very possible that a brother and sister married a brother
and sister i.e. Berry and Llewellyn.
If you look in 1841 1851 1861 censuses for Camrose you will see the Berry
families entered. There are also one or two at Roch and Hayscastle.
Regarding Evans of Camrose. Have you looked in the National Library of Wales
online site for early Wills(pre 1858) for Evans of Camrose.? I shall be
looking soon, and will contact you Angela.
