I am looking at 'Sir Richard Waldie Griffith
' said 'owner' of the estate of land, 180 odd acres, called 'Pencraig' circa 1867.
He died circa. 1879. he had no 'issue' and gave the estate to an "Aunt".
Records bear from published works where we see "of Pencraig, Llangefni" - a Lt.Col. Robert Bramston Smith
and his wife Elizabeth Charlotte Griffin
, the daughter of Sir Richard John Griffin, 1st Baron of Munster Grillagh
. So, we have Lt.Col. Robert Bramston Smith and his wife Elizabeth.
They had issue:-
1. John Robert Bramston Smith (later of **Dromore, Cork).
2. Richard Griffith Oliver Smith, born 1876.
3. Grace Frances -Smith (more later) and,
4, Elizabeth Matilda "Maud" Smith, who married John. A. R. Newman. JP of **Dromore, Cork.
Grace.F. and Husband Lt.Col.Phibbs, had a daughter, "H.T.Phibbs" who married a "Daniell" which is where we find clearly then a Mrs ! "H.T.Daniell".
We are dealing with Irish records
too here and I note names 'Griffith' and 'Griffin'. The mispelt Llangefni' was amusing but the incumbent had no big problem writing "Pencraig".
Now it's going to be fun trying to join the dots and pin down our Brigadier Robert Bramston Thesiger Daniell
into some view as to who his parents were.
I'll try to "Bring Out The Bramston" and resolve the 'pickle'...Drew.
