Request for information:

11 Victoria Terrace, Nantlle



Does anyone remember the Rainford family who lived at 11 Victoria Terrace, Nantlle, in the 1960's, and possibly earlier?

I am trying to find more information about my father's cousin Jennie (Jane) Rainford nee Jones, who died in 1966 at 11 Victoria Terrace. Her husband was Joe (Joseph Henry) Rainford, who died in 1968 in St.David's Hospital, Bangor, his home address being given as 11 Victoria Terrace, he was a retired hotel barman, possibly in Maentwrog.

They had a son Leslie (Joseph Leslie) who was born 1928 in Liverpool Maternity Hospital.

Jennie was the daughter of Llewelyn and Laura Jones (nee Jones), and was born Ysgubor, above Nantlle village, in her grandparents home. Llewelyn and Laura had a son , Llewelyn Wynne Jones,born 30 October 1890, Penorsedd Terrace; sadly Laura died less than two weeks later. In the 1891 census this child is living 25 Nantlle Terrace, boarding, and in 1901 is the adopted son of Hugh and Dorothy Jones, 12 Victoria Terrace.

Laura, her daughter Jennie and son in law, Joe are buried Macpeleh Cemetery, Penygroes. Their grave being next to that of Laura's parents, Owen and Jane Jones of Ysgubor and Ty Nant Uchaf, Nantlle.

Please contact me if you remember any of these people, or have any information on them.

Glenys Lloyd.
