Good afternoon all. I ventured back to the Powys Archives this afternoon to try and trace the Davies line back even further. My starting point from a previous visit was Thomas Davies & Ann Austin married in Berriew 16th May 1797. I started with Baptisms for the parish about 1782 and worked backwards, eventually found the only Thomas Davies that fitted the bill and then my heart sank......... August 7th 1774 Thomas Davies natural son of Mary Morris of Vaynor Illegitimate! I looked for any bastardy records or Poor Law Union records for Berriew in their online catalogue for that era without success. So my question, to you Top Dogs, is this the end of the line for my Davies branch? Regards, Andrew.
