I am trying to trace a Rev Daniel Griffith Evans whose home in 1841 census was Blaenavon
Llandysilio East Parish, Carmarthenshire. This was the rectory for Cilymaenllwyd parish
and Church. I have managed to find some facts on him through Alumni records but they did
not give me his father or his degrees etc.
Daniel had died by 1851 census leaving a widow Cicily Evans and children all living in
Blaenavon Llandissilio East in 1851. I do not have therefore Daniel's place of
From the Alumni facts, I could see that he was curate of Cilymaenllwyd in 1820's.
and later he was Vicar of Llangolman Pembrokeshire parish. There is a wall plaque to his
memory inside Llangolman church.
Daniel married Cicily Griffiths of Llangolman parish at Llangolman church in 1830. The
entry stated he was of Llandysilio but probably he was resident at Blaenavon Vicerage
before his marriage.
I should be very grateful if anyone can supply me with his father's name and place of
birth.. I have looked at Llandysilio parish records more than once but have failed to
find his birth.
He may be a member of my family tree as he has same christian names as my family from
Llandissilio(Daniel Griffith) and also grandfather told me that there was a vicar in the
tree. I have failed to find any other vicar!
