> Hello Pauline,
There were no Mainwearings in Llanfihangel Aberbythych for 1841 to 1881
census nor in Llanarthne 1851.Current telephone directory shows clusters in
the Ammanford area - a singleton in Llandeilo and some in Tumble, Garnant.
The census returns I have indicate that the ennumerators had fun deciding
which Bryngwyn was wich. Burial records attribute Griffith and Elizabeth
Powell to Bryngwinnau fach for 1847 and 1853 respectively.
The tithe schedule that a Jewell Griffith was occupyingBryngwiau
ganol(83+acres in 1838. A smaller unit Bryngwynon 1acre 1 rod and 1 pole was
occupied by Griffith Powell. In the definition of ennumerating districts
Bringwynnau is described as a settlement.
It could be helpful if Heather can specify her reasons as to why she thinks
that Ann is the grand daughter of Griffith Powell.
There are some Powells in the church register and it is a fact that there
were Powell marriages in the 18th century.
Please let me know if you think I can be of further help.
