crossroads cottages 1881 census

Postby davetparkes » Fri Jan 09, 2009 8:49 pm

a brief snapshot of groesffordd from the 1881 census

there were three cottages collectively called "crossroads cottages" on old maps.

somewhere it was referred to as "upper hamlet" llanboidy

it is possible to see from the census who was living there and in the surrounding area.

many descendents will be around today.

below are some extracts

1881
groesfordd (1) benjamin phillips 55 and family
groesfordd (2) anne lewis 66 b langan
groesfordd (3) mary davies 69

one of the above would be awelfryn which has an old foundation near the road.
there are signs of another possible building on the sarngoch corner.
