Pont-y-Pridd

PONTYPRIDD REGISTRATION DISTRICT
Registration County : Glamorganshire (1837-1974), Mid Glamorgan (from 1974).
Created : 18.7.1863 (out of Cardiff and Methyr Tydfil registration districts).

I still can't find what RD it is in before 1863.

It's not listed in either of those.

Thanks,

Dave

Re: Pont-y-Pridd

After a wee bit of bother I believe Pontypridd came under the parish of Llanwonno and so was in the registration district of Merthyr Tydfil.

To find I put in just Pontypridd in the search of an 1851 census on FMP and Pontypridd came up as the town and Llanwyno as the parish. Think that means Llanwonno.

Not easy!

Re: Pont-y-Pridd

Thanks Barbara.

You are right about the RD.

The notes have:

Methyr Tydfil
Llanwonno Glamorganshire 1837 1863 See Table 2, note (a).

18.7.1863 (a) Lost the parishes of Llanfabon, Llanwonno, and Ystradyfodwg, to Pontypridd registration district.

Some hamlets and towns in this parish:
...
Pontypridd (formerly Newbridge)
