Unconfirmed information from a relative who has since died
Other children may be:
James (Jimmy) William Evan Oswald
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.
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.
