red mail Gibbon, David and Mary
My great grandparents were married and worked in Penderyn. David was born in Fishguard(I think) in1833 Mary was born in Craig-y-Forest in 1841 David worked at Penderyn Lime and Silica works and prior to leaving for the states (1861 Census says he was a Quarry Man in Penderyn-Age 27) kept the Lamb Hotel at Hirwaun or the Lamb Hotel at Penderyn. Mary was staying at the large Ysgubor (Sp?) Fawr farm, where she was a maid, near Penderyn at the time of the wedding although her family home was at Godregraig, Ystalyfera. Mary is listed in the 1861 Census of Wales as the wife of David Gibbon in Pendryn, Breconshire, Wales age 20. They were Married in Penderyn 22 Dec 1860. David was also a Deacon at the Baptist Chapel and taught Sunday School.Mary Lewis was staying at yshubot(sp?) Fawr farm Penderyn at the time of the wedding. Should study the gravestones in Penderyn. They immigrated from Herwin, Aberdare, Glmorganshire to America in about 1866. David may have had a brother there too possibly named Levy or Levi. The mystery is who were David's Parents???. And where?
red mail Barber family of Penderyn
I am searching for any information regarding Barbers settled in Penderyn village. A William Barber was born in 1801 in Cubbington Warwickshire, he later married Ann Nurse (b 1824 in Wales) and settled in Penderyn. William and Ann had the following children - John (b.1844), James (b.1846), Sarah Jane (b.1848) and William (b.1850). I am descended from this family, some of whom later moved to Aberdare, Glamorgan.
