Joynt (Jane) Updated

Jane Joynt, who married Henry Joynt, was the mother of Margaret Joynt. Whilst much of Jane and Henry’s trees are identical, Jane did remarry after (presumably) Henry died and so her tree contains her ‘Pixton family’ children. There was close contact between Margaret Joynt and one of her Pixton half sisters so it’s good to see them all on the same lineage. William Pixton also married twice so has his own page even though he is only connected by marriage.

Baxendale Updated

A very short page, the Baxendales are only related to my family by marriage but still played an important part in the documents and pictures (such as they are) that I have. It’s a long time since I last looked at the family history but I seem to remember that Richard Baxendale who married Mary Braidwood was brought up his grandparents. A good story of changing times and improved prospects for children who were lucky enough to have a decent basic education and family who were in a position to help them.

Belton Tree Updated

This is the biggest tree and I can’t take much credit for it as the work was done by Gwynne and Thomas Belton in the days when a search was a search through real paper documents in London and in local archives. It’s a linear tree, colour coded for each generation. Yes there might be inconsistencies, so that will make it all the more interesting. A large work in progress.

Chapels of Bwlchgwyn

This morning’s ambition was to finish off Gwenda’s pages, so that’s done, and the school page, then I started on the Chapels of Bwlchgwyn. The page has been updated with a few more memories and anecdotes, and I notice quite a few quotes from Gwenda. If anyone feels safe enough to brave the traffic between Bethesda and High View, I would love some pictures of the Old Chapel and also of any building remains on the opposite side of the road by High View. Please, pretty please?
