I am new to the list and hoping to gain some assistance in breaking down my brick wall
My GGGrandfather William Davies is the problem.
I have him on the Census returns from 1861 until his death before 1901, I have his
certificate [10/3/1858 Llanrhystud to Elizabeth Vaughan] but I cant find his birth. On all
census returns he gives his place of birth as Silian and his age puts his birth between
1820/24 and his fathers name was Jenkin Davies mothers name not known.
I have not been able to locate him on either the 1841/51 census returns, maybe I have
found him and
not realised as I am unfamiliar with places around Silian.
During the time I have him on the returns he is a farmer at Penglanowen Fach Llangwyryfon
dies his wife takes on the farm.
Any ideas on where to go from here would be gratefully received.
