I am still trying to find my gr grandfather's parents, Benjamin Nicholas
born approximately 1835, two Census 1851 and 1861 have stated that he was
born in Maenclochog.
The DFHS fiche of indexed baptisms for Cemais does not have any Nicholas
baptisms in Maenclochog and no Benjamin anywhere in that Hundred. A Benjamin
Nicholas was baptized in Bletherston in 1827 (Dungleddy Hundred).
Bletherston is just a few miles south of Maenchlochog. The only Nicholas
marriage in Bletherston 1813-37 was of a John Nicholas in 1816, so this is
likely to be a blind alley.
I had a look at all the 1841 census indexes for PEM, but the only Benjamin
of about the right age was in Whitchurch near St David's and he was living
with an older Benjamin, possibly his father.
