Thomas & Davies Surname
in the 1841 Census of Brynmawr

This page provides a table of all those individuals with the surnames Thomas and Davies in the 1841 Census for Brynmawr, Llanelly Parish, Breconshire, Wales. The names have been taken from the recently released CD ROM version of the 1841 Census of Breconshire. Names, ages, occupations and places of residences that are not clear in the census are accompanied by a question mark or series of question marks. My own ancestors are found on the two tables. In 1841 John and Mary Thomas and family were living on Somerset Street, while the family of David and Hannah Davies were living a couple blocks away on Glamorgan Street. John Thomas' son John married David Davies' daughter Elizabeth in 1844, and they along with the remainder of the Thomas family emigrated to America four years later in 1848. John and Elizabeth Thomas settled in the Hyde Park/Scranton section of Lackawanna County, Pennsylvania, where John resumed his work as a coal miner.
