Griffith GRIFFITHS mr

Notes



Hannah Edwards miss

Llangurig is a parish next to Llanidoes and is east of
Aberystwth a principle city on the west coast.

Richard Edwards was a witness at wedding of Griffith & Hannah Their 2nd son was named Richard.
Both families where on Llanguig parish records. On 10th Dec 1816 David Edwards aged 79 was buired.
Griffith and Hannah where married 12th March 1827 with consent of parents. therefore under aged?
this would mean born 1807 & 1810?
10 Months before Hannah was born. But 6 months after Mary.
Hannah Mother's Name; Hannah, Mary, Jane?
I found that it was the custom to give some children the christian name of father as Surname. There was a Richard Edward baptised 18/6/1809 at Llangurig Father Edward Jones mother Margaret
Births for Hannah Edwards
Date Father Mother Parish
11th Jan 1803 Edward Evans Hannah Llanidoes
20th March 1808 Edward Evans Mary Llanbrymair
17th March 1810 Edward Evans Jane Llanidoes


In the census of June 11 1841 above shows living in Great Oak St Griffith Griffiths age 45 Butcher, Hannah 40, Mary 13, Elizabeth 10, Jane 8, John 5, Richard 3, Catharine 3 mths,

The ages shown seem to be 2 years younger than fact. This was not unusual.

There was a Hannah in 1851 census a lodger age 21 a spinner born in Llanguirg The place that Hannah was lodging was with a Mary Lewis in Great Oak Street a few doors away from where her parents lived in 1841 in New St was a Elizabeth s age 21 Flannel weaver born in Llanidoes at home of Lewis & Winefred Morris. a weaver. In Aberystwyth there was a John Griffiths servant, but shown being born elsewhere. It was common that the wrong birth place was given.

What happened to the family from 1841 we still need to discover, perhaps they all migrated to the south Wales Coal Fields between 1851 - 61, why did they move?
