3 responses to “1911 Census: District 16”

  1. i am trying to trace my great grandmother, Annie Richards Born 1862 Trefeglwys. Any help would be greatfully appreciated, Colin Livesey.

  2. Colin – not sure what records you’re looking for. You can search the birth indexes via http://www.northwalesbmd.org.uk/ which breaks districts down into sub-districts. There is an Ann Richards listed as born in 1862 but Llanwnog (Trefeglwys usually comes under Llanidloes). Might it be possible that Ann was born at a relative’s house or to the east of the parish?

    The 1841-1901 census transcriptions have now been transferred for public view, so you might want to check those out . From the 1871 census, the only potential contender is:

    6
    Pantywain
    1
    Evan RICHARDS Head Mar 30 Lead Miner Montgomery Trefeglwys –
    Mary RICHARDS Wife Mar 29 – Montgomery Trefeglwys –
    Anne RICHARDS Daur – 4 – Montgomery Trefeglwys –
    Mary RICHARDS daur – 3m – Montgomery Trefeglwys –

    However, the age is out. If you’re still stuck with thus, I suggest you check any marriage certificate for Annie and find out her father’s name. That will allow you to source possible contenders / check against her birth date. Also check church or chapel baptism records.

  3. Hi Colin,
    did you find the history of your great grandmother Annie Richards who was born in Trefeglwys?

    I have an Anne Richards in my famiy tree too.

    The Evan Richards mentioned above was my great grandfather.
