A list of the Members of
Calvary Church, Brynmawr, Wales
October 3rd 1844.

as transcribed by Judith A. Sylte

  • This information was transcribed by me 26 June 2004 from digital images I took at Calvary (Baptist) Chapel, Brynmawr 21 May 2004.
  • Names designated with an asterisk* were later crossed off for unknown reasons.
  • Names designated with a pound sign # were written in blue rather than black ink, evidently at a later date.
  • Names followed by (?) are not fully legible in my digital image and should be re-checked. Capital L's and S's are especially hard to distinguish from each other.
  • Some spellings are phonetic and nonstandard - e.g., Henreater = Henrietta, Luesea = Louisa, Gorge = George, etc.
  • Roman numerals indicate columns in a 2-page spread.
  • At Column 3 of the fourth leaf, a new list begins which is unidentified and undated. It appears to be a continuation of the 1844 roll, as only five names are duplicated and it is possible that those are other individuals (perhaps in the same family) with the same names.
  • All information should be verified from the original or a cleaner digital image as soon as possible.
