Congratulations on establishing the forum. I'm sure it will be an enormous success. I will certainly be using it regularly. To start the ball rolling my name is Bryan Watkins. My ancestors (from Montgomeryshire) are named WATKIN,.mainly from the Manafon/Berriew are. I am in touch with member Peter Watkin who has been enormously helpful in providing detail about my family history and has mentioned my
2 x great grandfather Nathaniel Watkin b1820. Apparently he refused to pay his parish tythes because he was a Primitive Methodist. This led to him losing Moat Farm. Any local knowledge/information in respect of this would be appreciated. Also he was married twice, firstly to Elizabeth Roberts and secondly to Mary Thomas. I believe Elizabeth died in her 30's. Does anyone know what from or any detail.
Well that's got things started. I look forward to receiving any information
