Penrhosfeilw Family History
« on: Monday 19 May 2014, 0937 »
Hello Caergybi Folk,
I hope someone can help me.  I have been researching my Holyhead family for many years and am in the process of compiling it into story form. I was born at 11 Maes y Mynydd, and now live in Melbourne, Australia.  It's not easy researching from this distance, but family folklore and records garnered from the internet have helped.  Briefly, my story revolves around the Williams/Roberts family which lived at Gofdu Farm, Penrhosfeilw.  I have ascertained that the farm was occupied by Hugh and Mary Williams as early as 1813.  William was a tenant at that time, so the building was erected before then.  Does anyone have any knowledge of this family, or of the farm, which may help me in my endeavors.  The book Mynydd Twr by Edwin Owens has been helpful, but it doesn't really cover that particular area. I am happy to elaborate if people have questions.
Thanks
Cyril Jones
