History Group

Thank you to Dafydd Tomos. By contacting this group I have found my 5th great grandfather and his descendants. It would appear that Michael Davies, b1727 of Cilycwm, his son David b.1747 and 2 grandsons Michael b.1787 and David b.1794 were all clockmakers. One son David lived at Abercamlais and the other Michael lived at Tanlife. Michael of Tanlife was my g.g.g grandfather. His son James Davies moved to Nantyglo Monmouthshire some time after 1841. Many many thanks.

    Hi I was rereading the notes Idownloaded from your website some time ago
    which said that Holborn House was used as a meeting room for the Independents.My ancestor Rev Dafydd Morgans and his wife Martha lived at Holbourn House in 1700’s.Iunderstood that he was a minister at Soar CM?He died in 1797 and is buried in the churchyard of St Michael’s.
    I hope this is correct and of interest to someone in the village.

      Bore da Chris,
      Following your enquiries about my cousin, once removed, Arwyn Richards. Arwyn is by now retired having left Glandinaunt, in 1980, and moved to nearby Pumpsaint, where after a few years, he moved further towards south Carmarthenshire, and eventually retired to Llandovery some years ago. Both Arwyn and his wife, Bethan, are in regular contact with us and I’ve forwarded your message to their son Griff, who lives in nearby Llanwrda village.
