Please can SKS soul find the following family in (possibly) Pembrokeshire in
1861 or 1851.
These are details from the 1871 census:
42, Gadlys Road, Aberdare
William Thomas Head Married 34 Furnace filler Tremerchog, Pembs
Sarah 37 St.
Alfred 17 engine tender Aberdare
Mary Jane 5
Although all the children were born in Aberdare, there seems to be no trace of
them in that town or in Glamorganshire in 1861.
First of all I'd like to take this opportunity of telling Dyfed listers that
I am unsubscribing for a period in a few days time. You can send enquiries
direct to my e-mail address, but don't expect a reply for a while.
The 1861 census is not indexed. The 1851 index of Tremarchog (St Nicholas)
area has a 4 year old William Thomas and he may be the one you seek. Sarah
would have been about 7, but without her maiden surname there's absolutely
no chance of anyone finding her. This applies in the 1861 census too, as I'm
sure they married after 1861.
HO107/2480, St.Nicholas, folio 9, pages 10/11, schedule 34
Anne Thomas, 46, born St.Nicholas
David Thomas, 45, born Nevern
Elizabeth Thomas, 7, born St.Nicholas
James Thomas, 12, born St.Nicholas
Levi Thomas, 9, born St.Nicholas
William Thomas, 4, born St.Nicholas
The 1841 census index (ref HO107/1444/24, St Nicholas, folio 4, page 2)
indicates that David was a cobbler and there is an older siblings John, 9,
Margaret, 6, and Mary, 11. Levi is shown as 1mo[transcriber's ?].
This implies a marriage about 1829, and a possible marriage took place Aug 5
1828 in Mathry between David Thomas, and Ann Rees of St Nicholas parish.
It would appear that neither Mary or Levi married - they were living
together in 1891 at Trellys-y-cnwc in St.Nicholas parish.
