In 1861, my great GREAT grandparents Thomas and Jane Llewellyn are at home at their farm in "Lanedarn". With them is their 8 year old grandson Sydney Bailey.

Ann - nee Llewellyn - is Thomas and Jane's daughter.

This census is the ONLY record I have of Sydney. I can't find a birth, another census or a death.

Having said that I can't find births for many of his siblings either!

This is the family in 1871

Name: Ann Bailey
Age: 42
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1829
Relation: Wife
Spouse's Name: Oliver Bailey
Gender: Female

Sub-registration district: Whitchurch
ED, institution, or vessel: 1

Household Members:
Name Age
Oliver Bailey 44
Ann Bailey 42
Thomas Bailey 19
Samuel Bailey 15
Oliver Bailey 7
George Bailey 5
John Bailey 3
Francis Bailey 1 Month

The only sibling missing (apart from Sydney) is Mary Jane who died in 1863.

Can anyone throw any light on Sydney? I really don't know why I have him as Sydney Bailey Bailey.

Something I don't understand, Jude, is that you say that Thomas & Jane Llewellyn are your gt. grandparents so their grandson Sidney is the same generation as your parent. But he was born 1853. Is that possible?

Yeah I'm a witch Margee!!!! It was confirmed today...I am trying to persuade my boss to spend £4000 on a new photocopier which also is a printer, a scanner and a fax. On the basis that the colour printer we have is ten years old and can't last much longer...that was what I said last Thursday.....and yesterday the printer conked out :-)

I sometimes feel a hundred mind ;-) ;-)
