Hi,wondering if you can help me?

by Dawn Williams
(Llanrug,Caernarfon.)



















Hello,

I hope you don't think this bold of me but I was wondering if you are affiliated with or familiar to Pentraeth at all?

Sadly my mam passed away 13th of this November and I'm trying to find some information on my family history.

My mam grew up in Pentraeth. I believe she was adopted by people who owned a big farm at the top of a hill. I think I remember an old lady used to run a quaint old shop at the bottom of the hill.

My mam's name was Gwenfron Elizabeth (Williams i think back then). She used to be a nurse at the old C&A hospital in Bangor before she met my dad, Gerald Robinson from Bangor. My sister Heather and I used to visit the farm with my mam when younger.

I also remember an Uncle Isaac, Aunty Mona, Aunty Carol and Aunty Freda, who had wild red hair.

Sorry my information is strange but they are my childhood memories. My sister and I were taken into care on and off from a young age, hence the scatty information.

There seems to be a bit of a mystery surrounding my family background. I don't wish to upset anyone or intrude after all these years. It's just that the natural hunger to find out more about my family has somehow become more powerful after sadly losing my Mam.

If you remember any of the names or the farm I would be ever so grateful for any information.

Thank you once more,
Dawn Williams.










Annwyl Dawn,

I am so sorry for your loss and for the time it's taken to respond. My own Mum is not too well and so this website has had to remain dormant for lack of time.

I'm afraid I do not come from Pentraeth but will make a general plea to anyone from the area to get in touch with me and I will pass on contact details in confidence.

If anyone out there knows something please do get in touch with me in the first instance.

Wil

Family history.
by: Andrew

All events about people, births, marriages, deaths, have to be registered by Law since about 1826 and so we will be blessed knowing that somewhere there is/are/ records to advantageous effect.

Caernarfon, may well be the place for central records, registry, for Anglesey. If I am correct, then we should be able to locate the Registrar in/at/ the Archives and pin down specifically say, Census Returns for Pentraeth. Census Surveys were and are, taken each decade. the first census was taken in 1841 and rather shabby. Then in 1851 which is a very good Census survey with loads of good info. From 1851 - 1861 - 1871 and all through to 2011. Or, you can ask someone from the Anglesey Family History/Society/Association/ where one may find that someone has already done some work in the areas concerned.

Collate names, trades, Church records of births, marriages and deaths ( 'hatches, matches and dispatches') Prior to 1826 Church records were the thing and, only baptisms, marriages and burials would be lucky enough, sometimes, to be in written account by a literate incumbent cleric.
