"Gweithiwch allan eich cadwriaeth eich hunain." 

John Williams of Pembrokeshire writes; Robert Williams of the Old School House in 1901was my g.g. uncle. He had farmed Tan y Fron, but by 1901 he had retired and his son John had taken over. On John's death Tan y Fron was farmed by Robert (always known in the family as Robin), and his sister Gwladys. The other sister Elizabeth (Lizzie) was a schoolteacher and also lived on the farm. There was another sister Grace who was born after 1901 and died in 1936. None of them married and the farm was sold to the Lloyd family in the 1970's, when only Elizabeth was left. She moved to a house in Rating Row, Beaumaris, and then to the Haulfre old peoples home in Llangoed. She died in 1992

Limestone quarryman John Roberts 46 of Llangoed and widowed domestic housekeeper, Catherine Jones 40 of Llangian lived at Pwll Crwn Bach. Robert was bilingual.

John Williams of Pembrokeshire writes; My g.g. grandfather was also a Robert Williams (see entry above on School House), the son of a Black Point Pilot called John Williams. who on retirement lived at Pwll Crwn Fach. The various Williams and Roberts family members at Pwll Crwn Fach were John Wiliams' descendents.  For example the John Roberts living there in 1901 was his grandson, who was the son of Robert and Jane Roberts.  Jane Roberts being the daughter of John Williams.John Roberts and his siblings were all born in Llangoed or Penmon. As a child he lived in Penmon with his parents who were at Graig Isa in 1851 and Pen Fron Bach in 1861. 
He was 46 and single in 1901, but my grandparents' photo album has a picture of him probably taken around 1910, with a woman looking some ten or more years younger than him, and a child, who is perhaps about ten tears old
The note with the photo just says John Roberts and his daughter, who I assume is the child and not the woman. I wonder of he married the "Housekeeper", although the woman looks too young to be the
housekeeper who was already 40 in 1901, and is certainly too old to be his daughter if he was single in 1901!
Another limestone quarryman, Hugh Parry 43 of Pentraeth lived at Pwll Crwn, with his wife Margaret 51 of Llaniestyn with daughters Mary 18 a general servant and Kate 17 a dressmaker, both born in Penmon. Hugh spoke Welsh and the ladies could converse in both languages.

Limestone Quarry Agent George Fingland 22 of Scotland was boarding with them. He spoke English. Working on the farm were Lydia Roberts 18 a domestic servant from Llanddona, John Ellis 21 a carter from   Llaniestyn and John W. Jones 14 a veterinary agricultural servant of Llangoed. Lydia spoke Welsh and the two Johns spoke both languages.

John Williams of Pembrokeshire writes; George Fingland,  as far as I have been able to work out, married first a Sarah Ann Williams from China House (A general store in Llangoed) who was the granddaughter of a Rowland Williams of Minffordd, Llangoed, who was the older brother of Robert Williams, Tan y Fron.  William Williams, who was a son of Rowland, married an Elizabeth Bowen (from Pembrokeshire) who was the daughter of Henry Bowen (from St Davids!) who was the lighthousekeeper at Black Point. 
After his first wife died, George Fingland appears to have married Margaret M Roberts, who was also a daughter of Tan y Fron.  George Fingland died in Glasgow in 1946, but is also buried in Penmon.  He was living at Flagstaff when his first wife died in 1925.

Ty Gwyn was uninhabited. 

James M. Sunners 50, an engine fitter lived at 1 Dinorben Cottage, with his wife Mary C. 43 and daughter Annie 19, domestic servant and son Henry 2. All were born in Liverpool and spoke English. 

Next door to them, at 2 Dinorben Cottage we find Edwin Whitefield 30 and his wife Catherine 29. He worked as a gardener, but with no information relating to where they were born. Both spoke English only. 

Pen Dyffryn housed David Roberts 57 a widower and retired draper of Llangoed and his domestic servant Ann Parry 40. Both were bilingual. 

Estate Agent and J.P. in County Cork, William M. Preston 56, who was born in Ireland, was head of the Lleiniog Castle household. His wife Blanche M 39 came from Charlton near Woolwick. Children William F. A. 4 and Blanche M.G. 3 were Penmon born, but John P.B. who was under 2 months old, was born in Woolwick. All spoke English. The housemaid at the Castle was Silly (Jilly?) Taylor 16 from Saltash, Cornwall, she spoke both languages but the remaining employees spoke English only. Clara G Wyllie 23 from Ruyton XI Towns was a parlour maid, Annie Millington 24 a laundry maid born in Sandbach, Mary Conneil 48 a cook from Liverpool, Emily M Farion 25 a nurse from Suffolk and Josephine Jones 19 a nursery maid from Rhostyllen. 

Glan Llyn was farmed by spinster Jane Davies 46 of Penmon, with agricultural labourer William Edwards 16 of Llangoed. Jane was bilingual. 

Joiner Owen Evans 46 of Beaumaris lived at Bryn Afon with his wife Elizabeth 46 of Llanfihangel. Their niece Edith Sale 16, who was born in Liverpool, worked as dressmaker. All were bilingual. 

Tros yr Afon was uninhabited. 

Retired farmer and widower William Williams of Beaumaris lived at Ty Newydd. Housekeeping for him was 40 year old Mary Jones of Penmon. Both spoke Welsh. 

Living at No 1 Penfron Terrace was Henry Hughes 54, a house joiner from Beaumaris. His wife Jane 44 came from Llangoed. Their two sons Lewis Hughes 18, a mason's bricklayer and David H Hughes 17 a gardener were born in Liverpool.

John Williams writes; The 1861 Census for Tan y Fron is especially interesting to me for two reasons. Firstly the 9 year old grandson William who was at Tan y Fron in 1861 is my grandfather. Although both his parents were from Penmon, he was born in Llanddona in 1852. His parents and siblings were living at their smallholding called Flicws in Llanddona in 1861, but he was obviously with his grandmother, and other family members, at Tan y Fron. Either there wasn't enough room at Flicws, or perhaps he was already helping on the farm after his grandfather John had died, or maybe he didn't get on with his family!. The other interesting Tan y Fron entry for 1861 is another grandson called Isaac. According to the Penmon christening register he was the illegitimate son of John Jones (Servant) and Mary Williams and the address was Tan y Fron. Mary Williams died in 1859 at the age of 26. I think she may aso have had another illegitimate son called Jared, who is buried in Penmon and was the child of Owen and Mary Williams and died aged 10 in 1861. I can find no baptism record for Jared, or a marriage between Oewn and Mary Williams, and I could be wrong, but the parish burial record says Jared was from Tan y Fron, so my assumption is probably correct. Jared does not appear in either the 1851 or 1861 census returns.  I don't have a birth date in 1851, so he could have missed the census, but he didn't die until November 1861 so should appear somewhere in the census of that year, but I cannot find a single Jared Williams. Isaac, who was still at Tan y Fron in 1871, and in the meantime had become a joiner. I am pretty sure that sometime after 1871 he went to sea as a ships carpenter and died in 1876.

I am grateful to Roger Brunning for supplying the following information on Penmon born Jane Rees, who married Hugh Hughes. KD.

Thank you for contacting me. I have quickly scanned the website and found Jane as the wife of Hugh Hughes of Bryn, Penmon in the 1841 census, this I had already seen.
All the North Wales connections are my wife's family and are as follows:
Hugh HUGHES and Jane REES married in Jul 1832, Hugh is believed to be from Holyhead whilst Jane was a Penmon girl.  They set up home at Bryn and had the 4 children shown in the 1841 census.  The 1851 census shows them to be at Brittannia Bridge with another 5 children, making 9 in all. These are my wife's g-g-grandparents

Their daughter Margaret HUGHES married Owen Robert ROWLANDS of Llanrug in 1862 and they had 7 children: they were bakers and confectioners in Bangor.

Their oldest son, Robert Evan ROWLANDS took Holy Orders and ended up in St George's Super Ely, Cardiff.  His younger brother Hugh Owen ROWLANDS married a Pentreath girl, Mary OWEN and Robert Evan must have returned for the wedding as 2 years later he married Mary OWEN's younger sister Margaret OWEN: they moved back to the vicarage in Cardiff and raised 4 boys, the eldest of which was my father-in-law.

Other Anglesey ancestors were from the LLangristiolus area, one of which was Richard OWEN, a Calvanistic Methodist Minister who married Ellen Evans of Aberffraw. 
In the 1871 census they are shown to be living at Penrhos House, Pentraeth.

I have no other information on Jane REES of Penmon, but would be pleased to hear from anyone who can help. e-mail  roger@the-brunnings.co.uk

A further 2 residences under Bryn were uninhabited.

Pilot William Jones 30 and Ann 30 lived at BlackPoint. 

Widowed farmer Ellen Parry 60 of Llanfair Hafan Etheyrn lived at Cae Merddyn.

This completes the 1841 census for Penmon.
