Llangunllo Primitive Methodists

Rev Rose, and Rev Jones before him, visited several members of his class or fellowship group from the Llangunllo area of Radnorshire, and made notes about them.

Four of the families appear on the 1901 census, which was most recent at the time, and some were also there for the 1891 census.

Firstly there was the Griffiths family - Richard Griffiths, his wife and their two daughters lived at Llancoch. Rev Jones notes that they "all attend our place" and that they are "kind people near the station". They did not live in the village in 1891.

Next to them were the Misses Lloyd and brothers at Bailey Farm. Rev Jones comments that "father's dead, mother recently died". He also seems to be concerned that they have become 'church' people but that Rev Rose should call anyway. The Lloyd family are not to be found in Llangunllo in 1891.

Lastly there are Mr and Mrs Tong, Mr Tong being a postman and blacksmith in the village. Rev Jones's directions are that "if you get him for company [7.35 in at Post Office] on a dark night it is as well up the dingle". In 1901 he was still living at 'Gravel', where he had been living at the earlier 1891 census.
