Fairly recently I purchased a record of MI's of Steynton Parish church and
was disappointed to find that there were only about twenty records shown for
the period between about 1830 and 1850...nothing prior to that. Perhaps the
stones were illegible, or there may have been a lot of unmarked graves.
There may, of course, be a separate burial register.
I could not find the names you mentioned, though two Prosser littlies....4
years old Annie F. and 4 years old
Gladwys were buried there in 1875 and 1882 respectively (in Area "B")

Subject: [Dyfed] Steynton Parish Church ... and Front Street, Milford.
Can somebody with some local knowledge, kindly advise:

If so, is there likely to be a graveyard attached?
2. Is it possible that the Front Street of Milford could be somewhat

I have located 'our' PROSSER family in an LDS reel - 1841 Census for
Milford - and thier abode was described as "at the back of the Front Street
of Milford", or specifically in one of "the houses at the back of the
gardens adjoining the same" (ie Front St, Milford). From thier position in
the Census, I am speculating that they resided in the second last house, at
the back of the gardens (if they still exist), which adjoined Front Street.
I have also found (through LDS reels) that:
William PROSSER was buried Steynton, 23 Dec 1857.
Mary PROSSER (nee Landry) was buried Steynton, 11 August 1850.
A family member, who will be in England / Wales later in July, has kindly
offered to take photos etc for me, (if he gets to Milford), and if the
Steynton church still stands and any Prosser or Landry headstones etc can be
Thank you and regards
