red mail Brookhouse
Looking for any information regarding John Jones b.1793, Jane Jones b.1793, John Jones b.1830, Richard Jones, b.1826, Robert Jones, b.1824. Particularly interested in a Richard Jones b.1750. Richard was a blacksmith and Robert b.1824 and Richard, b.1826 were apprentice blacksmiths. John was an agricultural labourer, who worked at Brookhouse Mill and the two apprentice blacksmiths (Richard and Robert) worked at Brookhouse Mill which i believe is now a restaurant in Ruthin but was a 17th century flour mill. I am looking for my great,great, great grandfather called Richard Jones who was a blacksmith and feel there is a possibility the Richard b. 1750 may be him. The 1841 Welsh census appears to list all of the above of possibly being one family. If there is anyone who can help i would appreciate it. Thank you.

David Williams
I am seeking information about my Great Grandfather David Williams of whom I know came from Denbighshire, possibly Llannefydd. He was a farmer and his wife was possibly called Elizabeth. They moved to Liverpool in approximately 1869/9 with two or three children. Ellen bn. app. 1864, John bn. app. 1866 and possibly Mary bn. app. 1862/3. He was employed by the railway in Liverpool and had three further children here ie: Edward bn. app. 1869, Thomas ( My Grandfather ) bn. 1875 and Catherine bn. app 1879/81 .I believe that he had to give up the farm in Denbighshire and then moved to Liverpool. Other places that have been mentioned are Llansannan and Bodfari. . I am sure that I have found the family in the Liverpool censuses for 1871,1881 and 1891 but I would like to know where they lived in Denbighshire before moving to Liverpool. I would be very grateful if anybody can help. Cheers..... Tommy.

red mail Jones
Richard Jones b. 1854 Glyn Ceiriog, son of John Jones and Naomi Philips, married Cecilia Wylie from Perthshire. I would love to know when and where he died. He is not at home (Scotland) with his family in the 1901 census, but is home to register his youngest son in 1903. Some of his children emigrated to Canada. In 1915 one of his daughters returns to Scotland with her new born son. Any help gratefully received
Joseph & wife Elizabeth MORGAN were both 47 on the 1851 Census for Crewe, Cheshire. They and their son John (aged 23) were born in Denbyshire - and a kind Curious Fox by the name of Denise B in Scotland has found that Elizabeth was born in "Travanant" - sometimes spelt "Travinant". I think this is either Trefnant or Tref-y-nant. Do you know of a John Morgan & his wife Elizabeth, both born in Denbighshire about 1804, married in Denbyshire before 1828/9, who had a son called John there? In 1830 they had moved to Liverpool, so it has to be in those early years. You're my only hope! Where do I look? Susie
