Subject: [Cmn-L] Another Beynon
Date: Wed, 03 Jul 2002 19:29:32 +0100
Thank you for your response: spurred on , I tried every common first name
against William, pretending it to be a surname, as well as Beynon. I only
came up with one more, a daughter to William and Mary Beynon, Mary
(William), baptised 11 Feb, 1807, at St Peter's Carmarthen, (7025309). She
must surely be a sister to James B., that we discovered last night. There
must be some more, but how to unearth them? I enjoyed the challenge, and
learnt a lot. Oliver.

>> Success? cheers, Oliver.

>>> who married Mary (LNU) who was born in 166/7 about 1790.
