Hi, I am researching my family tree and my 2nd great grandfather apparently was called Daniel Williams born 1835 in Cilycwm. His parents were David Williams and Mary (David apparently being born in 1810 in Cilycwm). Sometime in the mid to late1840’s David and family moved to the Bedwellty and Rhymney area. Is there any way you can help me out in researching them?
Many thanks, Heather Williams.

    I was delighted to come across the memories of ‘Dorrie’ Theophilus on
    your website. The John Evans mentioned there as a schoolmaster living
    at ‘Y Bont’ was the brother of my gt-gt grandfather Rev Dan Evans
    (Hawen), and the comment about ‘Davi Bont’ ‘changing’ his name finally
    helped me to understand why his wife’s two brothers have different
    surnames in one of her obituaries. Many thanks!

      Diolch i Shirley am gysylltu gyda gwefan Cilycwm. After years of fruitless research, a great help in searching for Jaci Siams (or Ioan ap Iago).

      Also, a hundred years ago this day, Hedd Wyn should have won the Chair at Birkenhead National Eisteddfod (6/9/1917 – Eisteddfod y Gadair Ddu ). The Crown at this Eisteddfod in 1917 was won by Wil Ifan (Archdruid in 1947-50). Wil Ifan’s uncle was John Evans, headmaster in Cilycwm School for over 25 years from around the start of the twentieth century. He and his family buried in Fynwent Cilycwm.

      Wil Ifan’s brother (John Evans) was also headmaster of Llandovery County School around 1920.

      Some of the family roots are in Caio and Ffarmers.

      Diolch yn fawr i chi hefyd, Dafydd,
      Sara Fox’s fascinating book, ‘Cilycwm: the Story of a Village School’, provided me with a great deal of interesting information about John Evans the schoolmaster and his family – very many thanks!

Her brother William ( My GGgrandfather William Davies was born in Llanddewi Brefi in 1809 I think they then moved back to Cilycwm and lived in Cwm and Pencwm he married a local girl Anne Davies and in 1861 they moved to Llwynberllan in Ffarmers they are buried in Bethel Cwmpedol.William was a drover and then a farm labourer.

    I grew up in Porthyrhyd, went to Llandovery Grammar School, and subsequently emigrated to Canada.
    I would love to purchase a copy of the book.

    I am a direct descendant of Deio Ajax.

  5. Mike Gingell says:

    I am looking for any information on William Hughes who married Jane Williams, who I’m told that the Williams family ran the Neuadd Arms somewhere around the 1900’s.
    They had a son, Willie, who married Mary Lizzie Jones of the Llandovery. Mary Lizzie was the daughter of Letitia Jones of the White Swan Hotel in Llandovery. Mary Lizzie was my Grandmother. Any info on the Williams/Hughes side in Cilycwm would be greatly appreciated.

  6. Bob Watkins says:

    Hello,
    I have been researching various Morgan and Williams family members
    from Cilycwm, and would just like to say a big thank you to the
    compilers of the MIs from Cilycwm church that you have kindly put on
    the web site. I have been comparing them with the burial records for
    the church and this has filled in a number of gaps for me. So far, I
    have been able to ‘place’ about half of the MIs against known wider
    family members. (If anybody is interested – see my Ancestry tree on
    line or contact me by email). Do you know whether anything similar has
    been done for the non-conformist chapels in Cilycwm, such as Soar and
    Siloh. This would help greatly.

    Kind regards and seasons greetings.

    Samuel Thomas of Trebane Mill, c. 1806
    I am researching my family history and have established that a
    direct ancestor was born in Cil-y-cwm, c. 1807, I’m interested to
    learn more about his family and Trebane Mill (which I have been unable
    to identify). The story is complex, but his father was Samuel Thomas,
    said to be the miller of Trebane Mill (who I assume married in 1806:
    Samuel Thomas and Margaret Thomas married on 3 October 1806 at St
    Michael’s Church). David was born David Thomas or possibly used the
    name David Samuel (possibly baptised on 1 March 1807 at St Michael’s
    Church). He is thought to have had siblings: Thomas, John, Daniel and
    an unnamed sister. In 1825, David was involved in a murder. There were
    reports in newspapers at the time, when the murder was said to be in
    Blaewddinfich (Blaen-dynfych), in the parish of Mothvey,
    Carmarthenshire. The case eventually came to trial in 1858, when he
    was cleared of the murder due to lack of identification. He had
    married in 1832 in St Tudôr’s Church, Mynyddislwyn, when he was
    using the name David Price, and by 1858 he and his family were living
    in Bedwas. There were explanations of the name changes in the
    newspapers in 1858. If you can help with information about the family
    and mill, I would be very grateful, I’ll come and discover the area
    next year!

      Blaendynfych (Farm) is in the parish of Myddfai, about 10 miles south of Cilycwm, both communities have a “St. Michael’s ” Parish Church!

  8. Maggie Jensen says:

    I visited my great great grandparents graves at Bwlch y Rhiw Chapel when I visited your beautiful country, there names are Morgan and Mary Timothy. Gravestone near chapel. Was wondering if records show any of their children also buried there. Also, is there any church history records about them?

    Thank you

  9. Trevor Sutton says:

    I wonder if anyone might be able to help me: I am attempting to trace a Margaret Ann Jones (nee Davies); her mother would have been Mary a native of Cilycwm. I believe that her brothers would have been William John Davies and Arthur Davies and her sister Jane (my grandmother); there were other siblings possibly Kenneth (who in the 1880’s went to farm in Iowa, USA).
    Margaret Ann may possibly have died around the 1960’s? having moved away from Cilycwm? Thank you.

  10. curveddash says:

    I am looking for any information on my great great grandfather, Thomas Lewis, who was born in Cilycwm around 1821. He was a lead miner as well as a Baptist pastor in the area. His first wife was Mary Morgan and he apparently remarried after she died to a woman with the family name of Viponte. My great grandfather William Lewis was born in 1857 at Great House in Llangadog. Any thoughts would be most gratefully appreciated!

  11. Jennifer Rees says:

    I am looking for my GGUncle Morgan Davies who was born in Cwmpedol on the 13 th December 1846 . He was last listed on the 1861 Census as working on the Gwladithe Farm as a servant . I have found a burial in Cilycwm for 1866 and wondered who had the relavant records . The family have been long time Baptists and attended Bethel Cwmpedol but he is not buried there . MyGGUncle Daniel Davies farmed at Penrhyn
    Farm ,Rhandirmwyn .I believe the Farm left the family in the 1930 ‘s . I would be glad of any information regarding this.

  12. Geoff Sykes says:

    Hi
    Would it be possible to have information on the Fred L James family who are still living in the Cilycwm area and are farmers I assume.
    I am married to Diane James who’s brothers and sister are John, Ann and Diane James.
    The reason I am asking is I’m doing some research on the family tree for their family. I’ve already done the mother’s side so I’m doing the father’s side and their father is Charles Stanley James brother to Fred James.
    I would like to visit Cilycwm and speak personally to the family if they would allow me or members of the James family.
    I know Fred died in may 2005 and is buried in Cilycwm.
    I look forward to hearing from some one as soon as possible, John is 74, Ann is 70, Diane is 62 and myself I’m 69.
    Kind regards
    Geoff Sykes and Diane James

  13. Phil Huxley says:

    I am looking at my family history & have recently discovered they
    owned or worked a farm called Erwdommy (Erwdymi) in the parish of
    Cilycwm in the nineteenth century. The farm was adjacent to another
    called Blaen-Duffryn. The 1881 census lists Daniel Jones as head of
    household together with the Williams family. My grandmother was Annie
    Williams (aged 6 in 1881). She married Henry William Huxley in 1897.
    Can anyone add anything to this please. Many thanks. Phil Huxley

  14. Graham Smith says:

    A very good morning to you all from the somewhat wet village of Caterham, in Surrey, to your village, which I remember extremely well from the immediate post war years – the second, I must add, I am old but not quite THAT old.

    I used to stay on my uncle Harry’s farm with his wife Edith, my mother’s sister and her two daughters Maureen and Bron, my cousins, who are both still alive I’m happy to say!

    Should you be interested I can send you some photos of the aforementioned.

    Kindest to all.

    Graham Smith

    • Graham Smith says:

      Further to comment above.
      My uncle’s surname was Soan and at the time – mid to late ’40s – he had a regular programme on BBC radio. From memory, which is now somewhat uncertain, the address at the time was simply the name followed by Cilycwm, suggesting it was the only farm there. Minor points, which might help, were that there was a stream running across the access at the bottom of a very large hill (?)/ small ‘mountain’.

      One climbed up a fair distance to a ‘plateau’ where the farmhouse, hay barn, vegetable garden, chicken runs etc. were. Sheep roamed free over the ‘mountains’ for what seemed like miles. Milk was ‘in house’ from the cows. Rabbit was frequently ‘on the menu’ as Harry was a dab hand with his home made catapult. There were no ‘services’. Water was from a stream to the rear piped into the house. Hot water and all cooking was from an Aga type stove. Lighting was paraffin lamps and candles. I remember, in 1949, listening to the Amethyst incident on a battery powered, valve radio amidst crackling noises of ‘high intensity’.

      The attached photos are not in any ‘date sequence’ and feature yours truly with a} Pete, the puppy sheep dog. I remember Harry telling me it had to be a single syllable name for calling when he was ‘operational’. b} Self outside barn door. c} L~R Maureen, Edith and Bron. d} L~R Edith, Harry and Maureen. e} Bron.

      Trust this will be of interest to your ‘oldest’ residents. Politely they would need to be well into their ’80s to remember the times I have related from childhood and not adult memories.

    Hi I have been researching the Rees Family and my grand fathers mother Mary Ellis Jones-rees Re-Married a David Davis in 1894 his Father was Evan Davis Wife Mary and lived in “Frongoch” Rhandirmyn 1881 Census the family came from Cayo/Caio.

  17. Sharon Meek says:

    Hi I am trying to find any information regards the Paulinus or Pallinus family sometime in the 1800 it was also written with one letter L. John Paulinus married Elizabeth Lewis, sister of Thomas Lewis the Smithy and Hymnist from Talley. I know that Elizabeth and her daughter also called Elizabeth died November in the year 1801, within two weeks of each other and in the parish register it stated Olchfa. Where in the village was this and is it still there? John Paulinus remarried a Margaret Rees in 1821 and he died 1845. I believe his son Thomas Palinus with wife mary and grandson Thomas had a farm within Cilycwm in the 1841 census. Do you have any information on this family and that of a Jonet Lewis sister of Elizabeth who married Joseph Rees of Cilycmn in 1783. They are my 1st cousins x 7times removed, Thomas Lewis was my 7x G grandfather Kind Regards Sharon Meek

  18. John says:

    I didn’t want to make my comment too long, so I’ll say now that my Mam’s great (or great great) grandparents came from Cilycwm in the 1830s. David and Sarah Howells (Sarah Evans) moved to Blaenafon which was a booming coal and iron town. David would return to Cilycwm for lambing, shearing and haymaking Then he had a haulage business carrying limestone from the quarry at Pwlldu through the tunnel to the blast furnaces in Blaenafon. The family continued in the business to my great grandfather’s day. The iron traces with which the horses pulled the drams were still hanging in the shed when I was a boy. I was unaware of my connection with Cilycwm until a few years after coming here to live.

  19. Angie Hicks says:

    Siwd mae!

    I’m wondering if there is a simple map available that shows the farms in/around Cilycwm. My great great grandmother stayed at Clyngell with her relative David Price during both 1841 and 1851 censuses. During the 1851 census my great grandfather, Rees Rees, was a farmhand at Clyngell. They married and I think they were given some land as, on my great grandmother birth certificate, it states that she was born at Clyngell Fach. Does anyone have any knowledge of Clyngell Fach?

    My great great grandmother died, leaving my great great grandfather with three young daughters. He later remarried and had a second family and lived at Rhandirwine (?) farm, Cilycwm.

    I would really appreciate any information on these farms. Hoping to hear from someone soon!

      Hi Angie
      Have a look at the Cynefin Tithe Map project on the National Library of Wales site. It details all the farms in the parish and will even tell you who owned them and what type of crops/livestock were farmed.

    Further information from Vanessa Lemm (see comment below)
    Dad says Mair has a brother Isaac quite a bit older than Mair. He says Mair’s father David was always good to him. Blodwyn was nice too. Dad says he fell off Cuthbert because a dog scared Cuthbert. Sunshine, Bess, Chess and Jolly were the names of the other horses.
    Dad can sing a Christmas carol in Welsh. When I was a teenager I was learning the piano and I would play Wings of Angels will enfold thee all through the night and Dad would sing it in Welsh. Sunshine was Issac’s horse and Cuthbert was Mair’s horse.
    Cuthbert was a fast horse and Dad said that sometimes he would ride past the school on Cuthbert and the school teacher would tell him not to race the horse.
    Dad remember’s Mair doing her nurse’s training and coming home to the farm with little gifts for her parents and for Dad. Issac was a Minister in the church.

    Hi my name is Vanessa Lemm. My father Derrick Lemm was a war evacuee.
    Mair Owen’s parents looked after my Dad on their farm. Dad has very
    fond memories of Mair and her parents. Dad remembers Cuthbert the
    horse very well also. Dad is still alive and was wondering if Mair was
    also?

  23. Susan Isaacs says:

    Hello. I am a descendant of the Williams family who lived at Dolgoy in the 1800s. (three of five children emigrated to the USA, and I’m a descant.

    I’ve had some family documents for about thirty years, showing the Dolgoy farm. I see your listing about John Williams, head of the house at Dolgoy in 1841. This corroborates what I have. However, I’d like to reach back further. Are any ancestry records kept online in England or Wales

    Also, Williams is my maternal great-grandmother’s name. My last name is Isaacs, changed from Isaac. I wondered if there were any particular parts of Wales where the Isaac clan might be found. I’m guessing I’m descended from some Calvinist Methodists who changed their names to a biblical name. If you have any suggestions of where to look, I’d appreciate it.

    Sincerely, Susan Isaacs

    I am researching a man named David Davies and part of my research has led
    me to his brother, Evan Davies who I believe lived at Ducoedydd during
    the late 1800s. I have seen the wonderful photograph you have on your
    website of Evan and wondered if you have any other information about
    the family or could tell me where the photograph came from.

    It may not be relevant to your website but I know where Evan and his
    wife Mary are buried – if you would ever like a transcript/photograph
    of their gravestone please just let me know.

  27. Stephanie Haberfield says:

    Hi – I was just looking up my ancestor – David Morgan – who I knew died in Cilycwm in 1797 (probate 1798).

    I’ve just looked up his burial in Cilycwm churchyard – and it states that even at this time, he was a Methodist Preacher and he was either “of” Holborn or died there.

    It would seem therefore that Holborn House had an association with Dissenters long before 1852.

  28. Eirwyn Jones says:

    My son was recently in contact with you and forwarded your emails etc
    to me. I found your website very interesting. It even brought me a
    letter with photos of the Cilycwm YFC in my time. I looked at the
    field names of Cochmaen. The second on the left after entering the gate
    was called Waunfroga, and the peak above the road to Moelfre we called
    Y Pygyn. The 11 acre field immediately below this road was ploughed with
    the Fergie and a 16 inch plow and brought up 6 long logs of bog oak
    which we sawed and stacked over summer but burned very badly! Thank
    you for a very interesting website. If I can help in any way don’t
    hesitate. ‘Eirwyn Cochmaen’

  29. Darren Williams says:

    Hello I’m trying to find information on William Williams who lived in Tynewydd Cottage, Cilycwm, born around 1858. I believe his brother was David Williams and daughters Sarah Ann Williams 1877-1941 and Margaret Lizzie Williams born around 1879. He was cited as a Husbandman on my Great Grandfather David Williams’ birth Certificate, David was born 1881. David had two wives in his lifetime, Ann Jones and Diana. Ann was listed as a dressmaker in the 1881 census but apparently died in 1891 in Pennsylvania USA, so it’s possible the emigrated.
    Any help or information would be much appreciated.

  31. Susan Price says:

    Hello, we have been researching our family history and believe one of our ancestors lived in Cilycwm. His name was David Edwards and was born in 1820. He was a sawyer and married to Hanna (born in 1814 in Llanfihangel). They had sons William and David in Llandovery (born 1843 and 1845) and were both pupil teachers. Anything else you could tell us would be great. We are hoping to visit the area shortly.

    Thanks

  32. Gillian Cecchini says:

    I am struggling to find more info on my ancestor. In the 1881 census he is living on a 120 acre farm called Bwlchcymanfa, Cilycwm. He was David Jones born about 1811. His wife is Ann, possibly nee Edwards.They married in 1835. Children born between 1837 and 1847. Evan, Rebecca, Edward(my gt-grandfather) Henry, Daniel and David. It’s possible David senior was born Caio or Llansawel? Might be the son of Evan Jones, Abercrymlyn, Llansawel?

  33. My daughter has recently been looking at our ancestry and it seems our family are from Cil-y-cwm. My wife and I live in Bridgend, which is not far to travel. The pictures of Cil-y-cwm are delightful. We would like to visit the village to investigate further the ancestry of the Theophilus family.
    Can you please advise where we could stay when we arrive?

    Regards

  34. amy theophilus says:

    I have been researching my family history and am pretty sure that a Dafydd and Anne Theophilus who lived in Cil-y-cwm around 1800 are my great, great, great, great grandparents. Any information that you have about them or any relatives to help me trace our roots back further would be greatly appreciated!

  35. dafydd says:

    shwd mae,
    i cannot find an Evan Williams from 1841 census in Cil-y-cwm. was he the person that lived in Bridge Street, Bedwellty? probably a mistake – Cilcwm in Cardiganshire??
    there was a large amount of Williams families in the area. if he was a miner, he would probably come from the Rhandir-mwyn part of the parish. lead mines were slowly closing down and the workers were moving to the industrial valleys.

  36. Wendy May says:

    I am researching my family history, in particular my great grandfather Evan Williams who was born in Cilycwm in 1827. he moved to Bedwellty where he married Sarah Medlicott in 1848..Any help regarding place and date of birth would be appreciated.

  37. Michael Galvin says:

    Having visited Rhandirmwyn a few years ago an oportunity has arisen that we are hoping to visit Carmarthenshire again in September to see if I can find out a bit more about my family tree, As I had very little to go on it was not till I got home to Southampton was I able to lay things out concentrating on Rhandir I later found that the “Rees” Family had connections with Cilycwm “New New Inn” and originaly coming from “Caio” so I am hoping that Plumsaint Gravestones can reveal a bit further back than 1780.
    I am confused that in the 1881 census the N.N.Inn was situated in siloh ? next to the New Inn which is still there but the N.N.Inn cannot be found ..so there is another area I will be hoping to visit.
    Mike.g

    • Regarding my earlier enquiry I believe that there may be a connection to the Rees family in Pumpsaint I have downloaded a list of Rees Members which were in the 1851 census and it seems to be in the 15 to 20 groups which going by the dwellings seem odd that at least 7 familys are not related by birth should be living in the same village, the majority of them named David & John and by their ages being near enough not to be related, of course several sons are named after their Fathers …baffled

  38. Heather says:

    apologies, above should read I found them on the 1851 census at Bedwellty. but it shows their birth places and dates

  39. Heather says:

    Hi Sara. Thank you.
    But I seem to have a different family. The family I have actually seemed to move to the Bedwellty and Rhymney area before 1841, as I have found them on a 1841 census in Gelligaer, Bedwellty. So they moved earlier than I thought. See Hannah’s birthplace below, that threw me off track. I had assumed they moved there after she was born, but child David was born before her at Gelligaer. ???
    1841 census in Gelligaer, Bedwellty –
    David Williams – Born 1810 Cilycwm, Carmarthen
    Residence IN 1851 Age: 41 AT Bedwellty, Monmouthshire – Head of household
    Spouse & Children
    Mary – born 1809 Cilycwm
    Daniel Williams – born 1835 Cilycwm
    Levi Williams – born 1837 Cilycwm
    David Williams – born 1841 Gelligaer
    Hannah Williams – born 1844 Cilcwm
    William Williams – born 1848 Bedwellty

  40. Sara Fox says:

    According to Ancestry Daniel Williams was born in June 1835. He appears as a carpenter in Merthyr Tydfil aged 36 in the 1871 census. His wife Elenor was 39 and they had two daughters Catherine (9) who was born in Cilycwm and Mary Anne (3).

    In the 1851 census there is a Daniel Williams from Cilycwm working as a farm labourer at Llanfairarybryn.

    I suggest if you want to find out more look at the record of births/baptisms for Cilycwm held in Carmarthen record office which might say where he was born and then you can come and visit Cilycwm!
