Some of my family migrated from wales to England but we don’t directly know any of our ancestors. We also know our Jones side came from the Abergavenny area, But we don’t directly know how. We also have Gatehouse family from Pontypool & Aberychan area who married an Irish Quinn and then later generation moved to London. Obviously Jones is a widely held name and trying to find who ours are is not an easy tasc. We would love to know some answers.

My Surname - ‘Watkins’ -I’ve read originated from the Welsh Marches also I’ve read it’s Scandinavian being more predominant on the North East of England . Can anyone shine some light on its origins ?

Why does the boys baby names only go up to T??


I have a distant relative who married in Kensington, England by the name of Dorothy Clawr Burin (b. ~1716). Is this a Welsh name?
