I searched google and many CNS hits

Someone asked same question on Welsh list
Example: Evan EDWARDS Widr age 48 born (W CNS), Wales
But no answers
And I did see a gen tree saying maybe a Welsh county (???)
Maybe check the above and write to that person

Dear all

Does anyone know what the abbreviation (W CNS) stands for in the LDS 1881
census CD's????

It is entered as a birth place for a person of Welsh extraction

I know that the brackets signify that it was either not in the original
enumerators hand or changed / added while preparing the index or was
originally in brackets but the abbreviation only seems to occur a few
times? and only once can I find a CNS in Wales itself, that being a (G CNS)

Hoping someone has an answer to this little problem

Best wishes
