A bit of a coincidence here --- Like Jill, I tried writing to the vicar too
, but in my case to see if he knew anything of a predecessor of his, my
great grandmother's brother, Rev. John THOMAS, vicar of Laugharne from about
1891 to about 1926. Sadly, I got no reply. But Gerry's right, helping with
genealogy isn't a vicar's primary duty!
I've since discovered that Ren. John Thomas's son, John Fleetwood Thomas, is
supposed to have lived in Laugharne at Reigate House (which is now featured
as a guest house on the Internet somewhere) until his death in about 1959.
So, anyone with an intimate knowledge of the place, if you can shed any
light on the latter, I might yet discover a third cousin or so I didn't know
I am afraid there's no known connection with a certain D. Thomas, poet,
whose name comes to most minds in connection with Laugharne. But John
Fleetwood Thomas was a descendant of Oliver Cromwell through his mother,
this being the most interesting historical relationship I've found among any
relatives of mine.
