Coedpoeth / Erddig Hall by Helen Bradley (Member 10039772) on 3-Aug-2001
Hi, I am currently tracing my family ancestry and stumbled across a reference to a quilt made by women in Coedpoeth during the first world war. This apparently has virtually all the families living in Coedpoeth at the time listed on it. Does anyone know where I can get more information on this? Thanks a lot Helen.

    I think the Herbie you are looking for lives in the old peoples houses, not sure which number but the address is Ffynnon Nephal, Ruthin Road, Bwlchgwyn, Wrexham. He has a son Gary who lives at Uplands, Brymbo Road, Bwlchgwyn, Wrexham. There are only four houses in uplands and I think Gary lives in no 4. Hope this helps.

Whilst I was on holiday last week in North wales, I visited Wrexham on 4.7.01 which coincided with a visit and parade by the Yale Choir. I found out they were visiting the grave (all 400 of them!)of their founder who was born in Wrexham. I enjoyed their singing and was curious to know how they did in the Eisteddfod at Llangollen. I cannot find any mention of them howver on the results page on t... more >>

Yale 1964 leavers by Peter Savage (Member 10028207) on 4-Jul-2001
Is there anybody out there who went to Yale Grammar school in Wrexham right from the beginning and who left in 1964? If yes, do any of you fancy meeting up some time next year (old school boys/girls)? I'd love to hear from any of you who may read this (especially our "unbeaten" rugby team).

Paul Thomas: If you read this please contact me.

where am I Wrexham or Flint? by karen confrey (Member 10037032) on 4-Jul-2001
Iam currently tracing my family history and it has led me to Wales, My great,great grandparents came from a place called Brynteg,Broughton, Where is this, is it Wrexham, Flint or some other place? it is confusing! any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks a lot. Karen   
  • Re: where am I Wrexham or Flint? by wrexhamafc (Member 10030309) on 4-Jul-2001
    Hi karen,

    You're definitely Wrexham, but, by the sound of it, somewhere between Brynteg and PENTRE broughton, both villages that have rather blurred boundaries on the hills over the main town.

    My fathers side of the family are also from Brynteg.

  • Re: where am I Wrexham or Flint? by karen confrey (Member 10037032) on 4-Jul-2001
    Hi wrexhamafc,Thanks a lot, the name Pentre Broughton has cropped up before so i now know i am in Wrexham, interesting to know you have family from Brynteg as i believe it is only a small village,my family were named Williams{of which there are hundreds in the area}and they lived in Edwards road,i dont know if the road exists anymore, i couldnt find it on the 1881 census but i know it was there in... more >>

  • Re: where am I Wrexham or Flint? by Peter Savage (Member 10028207) on 4-Jul-2001
    You're definitely in Wrexham (Clwyd, i.e. Denbighshire). Brynteg, Broughton and Pentre Broughton are all small "villages" which don't appear to have any boundaries. I used to live in the Moss a small village just below Broughton/Pentre Broughton. Brynteg is about 3-4 miles from Wrexham town centre in the rough direction of Brymbo.
    Hope this helps.

  • Re: lost relatives by kevin price (Member 10031260) on 6-Jun-2001
    "the turf" does ring a bell but i couldnt be sure
    this would be in the 1920s

  • Re: lost relatives by K JONES (Member 10053982) on 28-Dec-2001
    the pub the turf was on the site where the new country store is but that was a long time ago and a new one in its memory was built about 20-30 years ago it is now by the football ground

  • Re: lost relatives by Gedge (Member 10027031) on 26-Sep-2002
    The Turf as it stands now was only built 20-30 years ago? Who told you that?

  • Re: lost relatives by Jennifer Zorger (Member 10096810) on 18-May-2003
    my great-grandfather immigrated to the u.s. but his brother, who was named albert edward price, stayed in the u.k.

    he would be too old to be your father, but is there any possibility he's an ancestor? my great-grandfather was named wilfred price and was a carpetmaker. his father was named harry price. i believe they may have lived in or near kidderminister.
