  1. The farm for David Evans and family is Penrorin. David Evans is my great great grandfather who lived on the Penrorin farm and appears there on the 1891 and 1901 censuses.

    There is a lot of confusion over the name. Older OS maps show it as Pen’rorin and it might have been abbreviated from Pen-y-rorin.

    I believe he also farmed nearby Cwmberllan as well (which appears as Cwm-y-berllan on the old OS maps) and his son Evan Evans moves into the Cwnberllan property and is farming it in 1891. Evan then takes over farming both farms by 1901 – moving back to Penrorin – and his widowed father is shown living with him in 1901.
