FUTURE RESEARCH

Death The date of his death is uncertain, but I can't find him on the 1891 census. There is a death index dated 1899 but this is not certain.

1899 UK Death index Sept 1899 Aberystwith, vol 11b, page 37 Thomas David Aged 51

FUTURE RESEARCH

Unconfirmed information from a relative who has since died

Other children may be:

James (Jimmy) William Evan Oswald

POSSIBLE CONFUSIONS

Tre in welsh means 'town' or 'homestead'.

Confusion sometimes arises because the word appears regularly in front of the name of towns and villages and sometimes becomes incorporated into the name of the town itself.

One example of this is the town of Taliesin, or Tre-Taliesin. Taliesin and Tre-Taliesin are the same place.

POSSIBLE CONFUSIONS

Llangynfelyn, Llancynfelyn and Llancynfelin are all the same place.

Llangynfelyn is a village to the North of Aberystwyth, Wales, but the name is also used for the parish of Llangynfelyn.

The parish of Llangynfelyn includes the villages of Llangynfelyn, Tre-Taliesin, Tre'rddôl, Craig-y-Penrhyn and Goitre.
