I am trying to locate a place in Wales. My 3rd-GG-Father, James Brunt, The 1851 Census states he was born in Radnor, Bledon (per ancestry.com log).
I have been unable to identify a place for a Bledon. I have reason to believe he may have been from the eastern side of Radnor near Herefordshire, considering his wife and her mother are from around the Radnor/Herefordshire/Shropshire area.
His daughter Sarah Brunt married Richard Archer (born 1827 Leominster, Richard Archer's father..Richard Archer born Bromfield). Richard & Sarah emmigrated to Texas 1872.)
I have been unable to locate a community by the name of Bledon. I have not found a map with the name of Bledon on it.
James Brunt, I can account for in 1841-51-61-71 Census. He died 19 June 1874, buried Birtley, Prmitive Methodist Chapel, Herefordshire.
He married an Elizabeth Powis, (born abt 1799 ,Stoke St. Milborough). I believe she died between 1871-81.
Elizabeth Powis mother is a Mary Powis (born abt 1770 Bucknell.) I believe Mary Powis died between 1851-61.
Any Help is appreciated.http://search.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/sse.dll?db=uki1851wales&a...
