I was looking back on previous posts today and could see that Helig had already established who Pierce Jones' Grandparents were in one of his previous postings.

It was made on the 18th Jan 2017 but under the heading of "the Jones family" and from what I can see Ty Llwyd  appears to be in Eglwysrhos, so it doesn't solve the mystery of where Pierce's father was born, other than that it was in Llangystennin somewhere.

Yes Robbie Councillor Mark Baker is a CCBC Cabinet Member for Community Development Services & Regulation as well as the founder of The Gwrych Castle Preservation Trust and making a fine job of both.
Mr M & I are really enjoying the series too and agree with you Hugo, Portillo makes a much better presenter.

I had one of their "Fishy Friday Specials" at Home from Home Cooking in Penrhyn Bay and really enjoyed it.    Fish, chips, mushy peas and a salad garnish plus either a glass of wine or bottle of lager and it was a delicious meal for £10.00    I'm not surprised that the place was packed         $good$

Yes;  it's the greasy Portillo as presenter that deters me from watching.

 On a slightly different note, for Fester: have you watched Orville?  It's on Fox at the moment and it's written and produced by Seth McFarlane, not known for his erudite or socially-aware tendencies, but the Orville is quite remarkable. It's essentially Star Trek - TOS - given a makeover.

What marked ST out from other Sci Fi was its preparedness to deal with the socio-political issues of the day.  Orville is continuing that tradition, and - although what passes for humour from McFarlane is still in the script in places - it's about as far from Family Guy as you could get, and pulls off the trick of getting you to empathise with and care about the characters.

Very much worth seeing if you enjoy Star Trek.

I must admit that I didn't care much for Michael Portilla as a politician but as a presenter on the railway jouneys he is really good and I've just finished and enjoyed watching the one featuring Gwrych Castle.
That young guy that is trying to restore the castle is quite a remarkable young man and I hope he is able to achieve what he has set out to do.
I'm now looking forward to seeing the next chapter in his railway journey

I’m tempted to buy it, and shut it down... just to annoy the ignorant dog owners who make up 95% of the clientele.

When I’m sat trying to have a nice relaxing coffee, taking in the vista, and you’ve got Bonzo, Fido et al, jumping up at me or closing in on me, slobbering expectantly for some food..... No, I don’t think they’re lovely and cute, and no I don’t care if they’re just playing, or saying ‘hello’

Keep the damn things under control, thanks in advance.

I had a quick look at Roots UK for the years 1883 and 1884 and there were hundreds of John Jones born in the UK, but in Anglesey there were only 7 born in 1883 and 9 born in 1884.
These can then be broken into Districts within Anglesey so that will reduce the number we are looking for.

The problem was that because I don't subscribe to Roots UK i was unable to do any more so back to the Archives for a free search

Fester, for anyone spending about £33 per month for the ffit membership and simply wanting to use the gym and then have a swim then I guess you will always be safe with using the facilities between 12.30pm - 3pm midweek.

Anytime on a Saturday and Sunday for the gym is fine but it will always be a gamble at the weekend for the pool because of the volume of swimming galas.
