    Can anyone make out what the word before Beguildy is, It's from a death certificate ?

    Sixteenth
    July 1918
    ??????
    Beguildy
    Radnor
    Knighton R.D.

    The burial record seems to have the same place of abode.

    It looks like Travel, but I doubt very much it is. On the burial record, to the left in the margin, it says Inquest. I wonder if that relates to this record or the one on the previous page? Have you had a look in the newspapers?

    Yes @AnnB kindly looked for me, but nothing turned up. There was an inquest as the boy was only 8 years old.

    No, they were house based. The surname is Gravenor.

    As it is on the English-Welsh border there is a lot of strange place names.

    I’ve had a quick look at the burial entries around the time of little Leonard’s burial and am amazed at the variety of place names recorded. I can’t immediately see another entry which looks remotely like ‘Travel’, but maybe it was just the name of a house or farm, lost now in the mists of time....

    Are there any electoral registers about for that area and time? Thinking you could look for his dad, who seems to have died the following year?

    Just been having a rootle around, wondering if it might have been Trovel, and have found such a place in Creigbyther, Beguildy, in the 1861 census RG9/4236/59/9, home of William Edwards, a farmer of 100 acres :)

    Looking at an OS map, in Llanllwyd, just to the north of Beguildy is a building named Travelly Bungalow. This is surrounded by Lower Travelly, Middle Travelly and Upper Travelly. A name change over the years perhaps?

    Could well be. I'll pass on the findings on and we may get a visit from the person I asked for. We were both stumped.
