Surnames ABBOTT AND PATRICK of Caernarfon
I'd be very pleased to hear from anyone researching or connected to families of the surnames Patrick and Abbot in the town of Caernarfon. I'm particularly interested in Ellen Abbott born about 1786 and her husband William? and in William Patrick whose son and grandson were also named William. I have read an article from a newspaper which I found on the internet it was about a court case which mentioned both the William(born about 1814) and also Ellen and the market. In 1851 and 61 the family were in Hole in the Wall Street.
red mail Grace Samuels daughter of Thomas Samuels
I am desperately trying to trace an ancester of mine, Grace Samuels, born about 1817, I believe in Carnaervon. Her father was Thomas Samuels, a boat and ship builder in Caernarvon. I would really like to know if she had any sisters or brothers and am not sure how to find this out. She married gt gt Grandfather Hugh Rogers from Bangor and I can find her on the 1841 census as Grace Rogers but have no trace of her before she was married. Thanks Vicki

From - The Builder 19th January 1867 p. 043 Carnarvon - Report of Dr. Seaton on Cholera there.
