Hi Bruce,

Our families may have common origins.

I have a gr-gr-gr-grandfather by the name George LLEWELLYN (also spelled LLEWELLIN) who was a merchant seaman. He ended up based in Falmouth, Cornwall where he married. This information comes from census records. According to records (1841) he was not born in Cornwall and based on his age the only identity I can establish is that he was possibly born in Whitchurch, Shropshire and christened there 26 Dec 1775 son of John LLEWELLYN and Sarah.

Other children of this couple are;
Sarah b 1764,
Margaret b 1766,
Ann b abt 1769,
Mary b 1771,
Jane b 1773,
George (mine) b 1775,
John b 1778,
Charlotte b 1781.

From the above I deduce that John and Sarah possibly married circa 1763/4 but can find no record of this there.

George and his wife named my gr-gr-grandmother Charlotte which is not one of the local names.

Any of this info ring any bells?

Regards, Rob
