    There was a "Gathering of School Managers at Abercamlais" according to The Western Mail dated 23rd October 1876
    On Saturday, the members of the Brecon Archidiaconal School Managers Association held their forty-sixth meeting at Aberearalais, the residence of the Rev. Garnons Williams. The attendance was very large, including most of the clergy of the rev, gentleman's rural deanery, and also the school teachers of most of the national schools in Breconshire and Radnorshire.

    Amongst the list of names is Mr D. R. Davies, Talybont. In fact, after the list of all the good Revs. who were there, there is only a Mr Robert Smith and D. R. Davies named, it then says "and a large number of school teachers and pupil teachers", so he was obviously quite important :)

    I see John is a widow in 1871.

    FMP has a burial image for an Elinor Mason in Cilgerran on 12th September 1866 aged 35.

    In the margin on the right of the page (contains 8 burials) 4 of the burials have what.JPG anyone ?

    Quite possibly. According to this GENUKI page, one of the main outbreaks of cholera was in 1866. :(

    "The Englishman Who Went Up a Hill But Came Down a Mountain"
    1995, directed by Christopher Monger, starring Tara Fitzgerald (Brassed Off), Ian McNeice (Doc Martin) and Hugh Grant (Hugh Grant in different guises). In 1917, two English surveyors arrive in a Welsh village to measure the local mountain. The villagers are dismayed when these nasty foreigners declare that it's a hill and plot to keep them in the village while they carry earth to the top of the "bump" until it' high enough to be a mountain. There's not much plot, but it's a nice gentle comedy. Although the film is fiction, it's inspired by a real hill - The Garth, or Mynydd y Garth, near Pentyrch in Cardiff - which has bronze age burial mound on the top which overlooks Cardiff and the Bristol Channel. Christopher Monger also wrote a book about it.

    There's a very probable burial record for David Davies snr on FMP. I know you have a sub with them Chimp. I searched in Pembrokeshire burials 1839 +/-2yrs and he was first on the list.
