Re: Family History, Wales

In Reply to: Family History, Wales by Dr. Mike Davies of 154

Hello, I was interested in your offer as I am also a DAVIES by birth, Mike. My great grandmother,Sarah BATH married Joseph DAVIES in 1857 in Newport. Joseph was born in 1824 in Brecon, the son of Benjamin DAVIES and wife Ann LEWIS(who married in 1805). The 1841 census shows him alive but not of that countyand listed as Benj. DAVID a weaver. I found a BENJ. DAVID of the right age born Sept. 179 in Llanfynydd,CARM . Do you think it could possibly be him? It was in the IGI and I know that is not always reliable but it shows up in CARM births too. I would appreciate your advice.
I realize DAVIES is a common name and patrynomics comes into it earlier:Ben DAVID is said to be son of John DAVID or David JOHN!! Sorry this is on the Cardiff list but I justify this as years later my family lived in Rhondda and Aberdare, Glamorgan where Joseph Davies'son Henry was a coal miner/mechanic and his daughter Mabel married Earnest WEICHERT in Cardiff in about 1920.
Thanks for reading all this and for any opinions you have, Jane ( lived in Treorchy,now in Canada )
