Anybody familiar with the abode Plasnewydd and Blaenpantrivee in Bettws
Evan? My Lloyd-ancestors lived there near 1864 and 1841.
Would very much like to know if these places still exist and if some who is
near is willing to take a snap for me.
Plasnewydd is enumerated in the 1881 census in Betws Ifan parish (CGN) near
to Penybryn and Pen-llain. This has enabled me to locate the probable
relevant area on a modern Ordnance Survey 'Explorer' map (sheet 198) and on
the 1891 large scale map on the Old-Maps website, although Plasnewydd itself
does not appear to be indentified by name. The approximate grid references
are 224600,249300 (SN246493).
Blaenpantrefi is enumerated in the 1881 census in Troed-yr-aur parish (CGN)
near to Llainlas, Tynewydd, Tirmynydd and Rhandir. This area appears to be
on the junction between two modern Ordnance Survey 'Explorer' maps (sheet
198 and 185), and also, unfortunately, on the junction between two counties
(CGN and CMN) on the Old-Maps website. Again, I cannot identify
Blaenpantrefi itself, but the approximate grid references are 232200,244900
