The goal of this Team is to make all County profiles the best that they can be. It is our desire to leave a lasting legacy of work for future generations by sourcing, connecting and growing our County branches of the tree.

HYWEL DDA   ("King Howell The Good")

Dinefwr Castle near Llandeilo: Chief Seat of Hywel Dda
Hywel Dda (c. 880–948), was born in Carmarthenshire at Seisyllwg. As grandson of Rhodri Mawr, he was a scion of the Royal House of Dinefwr and created the Deheubarth dynasty, which came to rule most of Wales until its annexation by Edward I. Recorded as King of the Britons in the Annales Cambriae, Hywel instituted Welsh Law and the Senned building is named Tŷ Hywel (Hywel's House) in his honour.


To achieve our goal, these are some of the things we can work on:

This is a link to the Wales Maintenance Categories which can be used to help find profiles that need some work.

Please add these to profiles if required so we can work on improving them.

If it was likely that the person was in Carmarthenshire at some point in their life use that category rather than just Wales.

One Place Studies

Consider creating a One Place Study for a building, village or town in Carmarthenshire. Here are those in progress;

Team Member Specific Interests

  • Jutta: My interests in Carmarthenshire are mainly in the area in which I live between Llandeilo and Llandovery. I am currently working on a small One Place Study based on my own house. Llangadog, Carmarthenshire One Place Study.
  • Anne: My main interest is the |Perrotts of Wales, in particular Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire. The family's ancient origins, together with the spread of its many branches to all quarters of the globe, provide a fascinating story spanning almost two millenia.
  • Byron: Born in Llanelli Carmarthenshire in the 1950's, my main interests lie in my and my wife's roots and the history and industrialisation of Llanelli. I am very familiar with Llanelli and it's surroundings and the changes that have occurred over the last 60 years. I still visit frequently although I now live in Berkshire.
  • Alun My geographic areas of interest are in the Llanddowror/Laugharne/StClears triangle in the SW of the county and the surnames there are Edwards and John. The Edwards may have to go back to Maenclochog in Pembrokeshire. The other area is Llangyndeyrn (Llangendeirne) down to the Gwendraeth Valley/Llannon area - where it's Jones and Peregrine (both start in Llangyndeyrn). Those two areas will take me back to the early 1800s. Also Meidrim is a village of interest.
  • Wendy I love genealogy and have been seriously addicted for about 30 years now. I love to spread out the branches of the tree and find everyone there. My surname interests are Jones and Griffiths in the Llanegwad and Llanedi areas.

My g grandparents Thomas Morgan Jones and Mary Ann King married in Ystradgynlais in 1861, by 1863 they were in Australia and in Ballarat by 1866 , apart from Mary’s sister Sarah who came to Ballarat and married a William Taylor , Thomas’s two sisters an two brothers and the rest of Mary’s siblings remained in Wales so I’m thinking there must be a few 3rd or 4th cousins o we there some where
