God Parents

I have a relative that is mentioned in the 1861,71,81,&91 census living with other people than his parents one is an aunt and one is a grandmother, A member of your forum found a parent that had a sister of the same name as the aunt. The problem I have is the Grandmother does not seem to come from that family. Is it possible that she was a God parent and is there a record of such parents any where?

Re: God Parents

Howell lewis born 1864 Glamorgan - Llantrisant 1871 with Aunt Ann Benjamin, 1881 with Grandmother Gwenillian. What makes me wonder If Gwenillian was True family is Ann Benjamin is listed as a pauper while Gwenillian is listed as a landowner.

Re: God Parents

Hi Fargo and peeps
In 1871 it has his birthplace as Breconshire.
Now, I am not cluey at all about all these Welsh place starting with a Y..
Ann is a widow 47 with 4 kiddies and listed as a pauper.
Perhaps she was relying on the Parish Chest for support?
1891 is interesting
Ann is 67 young Ann 37, Wm 29 coal miner(from 1871)
Howell BENJAMIN coal miner 29 born Y brecon.

Re: God Parents

I orginally had Howell lewis born in Breconshire but one of your forum told me that he was born in Glamorgan I am how confused as I could not find a birth cert saying he was born in Breconshire.

Re: God Parents

Hi Fargo
I've been away for a long weekend.
Perhaps we should trace Grannie and Auntie from the info you have?
