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.
