WELCOME TO   'CLWYD SURNAMES'

                                                                                                  Surnames and unusual first names beginning with:

   A B C D E F G H I J K L M N O P Q R S T U V W X Y Z

  
DAVIES' Marriages      EDWARDS' Marriages      EVANS' Marriages     JONES' Marriages       LLOYD Marriages  RICHARDS' Marriages
ROBERTS' Marriages   SALISBURY  Marriages    WILLIAMS'  Marriages    WYNNE Marriages



                                                                                                                                                                
                    This master index contains all of the surnames and many
of the more unusual first names to be found in the parish register transcriptions
                    of Clwyd (Denbighshire and Flintshire in North Wales).  The transcriptions currently included are listed on my 'Key' page - link above.
                    The general intention is to indicate in which parish any of the names may be found.
 

                    The original parish registers were transcribed and indexed by volunteer members of Clwyd Family History Society, the results printed,
                    and are for sale by the Society.

                    Experts may not always agree with the 'umbrella' name under which I have placed some of the entries but I feel it is more important to be
                    ble to identify the parish register(s) for the name in which you are interested.   References are
cross-indexed where it may be helpful and
                    here and there, for added interest, are place names and the meaning of a name
 

                    The Index of Welsh Wills proved at Chester 1545-1858 is also included, together with extracts from some National Commercial Directories
                    and reference books.


                   It is my sincere hope that these pages, which have been added to almost every day since February 2007, will become a regularly used tool
                   to aid research in the Clwyd area,  and my grateful
thanks must go to my 'technical adviser', my son Duncan, without whom the pages may
                   never have become airborne!

 The following second-hand books are available free, if collected.
                   All are in good condition.
                   If you are interested in any one, or all, please em me to arrange
                   a mutually convenient date and time for collection.
