red mail Thomas Phillips
I am looking for information on Thomas PHILLIPS b calculated 1858. I would love to know when and where he was born. The only clues I have are from 2 census returns - one which quotes Pembroke as place of birth and the other which quotes Penrhydd, (or Penrith) Pembs. On his marriage to Margaret JONES of Aberdwylan, Cenarth in 1876 he was living in Weddensfon, Llanfiangelpenbedw. His fathers name on the marriage certificate is blank. I am assuming that Phillips was the name he was born under I.e. His mothers maiden name but of course he could have been adopted and taken the name of his mothers future husband! He and Margaret lived in and around Cenarth during their married life. He was a labourer to start with but then became a miner. So any suggestions, however vague, would be gratefully received. Many thanks

John davies married Sarah Phoebe Rees in Cardigan 1879. They had 6 children, most born in Shrewsbury and by the 1891 census were in Aberystwyth.

LETTIA CASWELL was born on Oct 27,1861 IN Meyther ,Wales. GGGrand father CASWELL came to the US while they were in Tennessee. They were suppose to be indebt to the company store .

I would love to hear from anyone who might know of this family. I am desperate
red mail Descendants of Matthew Campbell and Mary Hazelwood
I am seeking details of any descendants of Matthew Campbell, (1763-1823)who was Collector of Customs at Pembroke. He had no legitimate children but at least three illegitimate children. I am particularly interested in any details of his son George who was born at Pembroke on 9th July 1812 and baptised at St Mary's, Pembroke, on 17th July 1812. George's mother was Mary Patterson, an illegitimate child who was baptised at St Mary's in 1798. She married William Hazelwood or Hasslewood, a shipwright at Pembroke Dockyard on 5th April 1818. George lived in the Hazelwoods' household for several years but I have no record of what happened to him. He seems to have disappeared from local records. William Hazelwood abandoned his family about 1823 and was said to have gone to America. Mary Hazelwood eventually married John Row or Rowe, bachelor of Pembroke, on 25th September 1833. She may have been the mother of Jane Rowe, the daughter of John Rowe, joiner, who was baptised at St Mary's on 6th May 1836, but I am not sure. She was alive in 1841 because records show that she was then in Gaol but what happened to her after her release, or when she died, I do not know. Another of Matthew Campbell's illegitimate children was William Campbell, the son of Elizabeth Roch, known as "Bessy", a prostitute of Pembroke. William Campbell was born on 24th October 1818 and baptised at St Mary's on 19th March 1819. He was still alive in March 1827 when the parish paid for clothing for him. Any information about any of these people will be very gladly received.

I am looking for details of the family of my maternal grandfather, Norman Healing Barger. He died in Pembroke Dock in ?1966, well into his 80s. He was born into a vaudeville? family in north wales (possibly Rhyll) in the late-ish 19th century. Norman's family was certainly involved in music halls throughout wales and he and his brother, Tom, operated cinemas in both Carmarthen and Pembroke Dock, and possibly Swansea as well, if not other towns. He had a sister Zeta (possibly Zena). He married Gwendoline James, another daughter of W. (Billy) James, butcher, Dimond Street, Pembroke Dock at the beginning of the 20th century (qv Sloggett, Pembroke Dock).
