Ah, your a star Sheila, as always. Is that book still available?

Anyone know where, Hescombe is, in relation to Pembrokeshire it's given as a birth place for people living in Dinas. I've looked on Genuki & google maps but I cannot find it, any ideas?

Thank you for the warm welcome. The names thus far in Wales Pembroke area are: Harbor, and a unknown Joyce I am sure I have more but need to track them down in my tree.
thanks again

Thank you Sheila,

"Uncle Sid" was my Grandmother's brother. I would love to have the 1911 census details as has yet to include this on their site.
I have a postcard picture of Sid's mother Sarah and some of the children standing on the roof of the Studdock Farm house if anyone would like it.
Regards Rob

Thanks for the information about Benjamin Gibbon! Really fascinating and now I have found a link to the Canton's as discussed before! The links you post are really informative and interesting so big thanks!

Wow, thank you so much Sheila. That is so helpful. I did some digging online and had come to a similar thought - that the name is probably more Irish than Scottish. I rather like the Sea Warrior derivation ... pity I'm hopelessly and pathetically sea-sick myself! I might have a mooch round graveyards in the Rhoscrowther / Monkton areas and see what I come up with!

No hurry, Sheila. Nothing's going to change that quickly in my family tree!! It's funny, but my dad was so happy with his "Scottish ancestry" in the past (from his middle name of Murray) that he even bought himself a Murray tartan tie! I'm very proud that Morris's grandson, my grandfather, went to University ... not so bad a turnaround over so few years.
If I wanted to go further back with Morris Williams, would all the documentation be in Aberwystwyth?
Just reply when you can, Sheila. I'm so grateful for the help you're giving me.

Thanks Sheila, really interesting. I'm assuming that there are so many spellings of the "Murray" surname on the other side of the family, because none of them knew how to spell it, so it was done phonetically. Murray of course sounds Scottish, while Morrow sounds more Irish. But back to about 1760 it's pure Rhoscrowther!

Hi Sheila, thanks so much for the information about Morris. Great stuff! One question - what do you mean by "both by mark"? It doesn't give any information about Morris's father, does it? BRILLIANT to have the maiden name of my great-great-grandmother - I am so grateful.

While I'm here, does anyone have any links with the Murray/Murra/Morah/Murah/Morrow family? Yes, those are all the different spellings I've found of the same surname! They appear to come from the Pembroke/Rhoscrowther area.

I agree, the title sounds great - I like the ring and it's a perfect fit
