Welcome to the Pembrokeshire Team
Team Leader: Todd Gilbert
Team Members: Jerry Owens | Anne Rees | John Tyner | Christopher Wright | Kathryn (Lake) Hogan U.E. | Andrew Thomas
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.
The following links are to profiles which need attention and have a connection to Pembrokeshire. Connections typically can be Birth Place, Death Place or Marriage Location.
- Orphans || No Profile Manager
- Wales Maintenance Categories || Use to find profiles needing improvement. Please add these to profiles if required, so we can work on improving them. If the person was in Pembrokeshire at some point in their life, use county category rather than just Wales.
- Wales & County Statistics || All Wales Stats || Stats by Counties
- County Location Checks
- Commemorative Plaques in Wales || Lists those who have been recognised for their achievements.
- Pembrokeshire Notables || Lists profiles meeting notables criteria with Birth, Marriage, or Death in Pembrokeshire.
- Login to request to the join the Trusted List so that you can edit and add images.
- Private Messages: Contact the Profile Managers privately: Hilary Gadsby and Wales Project WikiTree. (Best when privacy is an issue.)
- Public Comments: Login to post. (Best for messages specifically directed to those editing this profile. Limit 20 per day.)
- Public Q&A: These will appear above and in the Genealogist-to-Genealogist (G2G) Forum. (Best for anything directed to the wider genealogy community.)
I guess I'll just re-shelve him again.
Place :Reynalton / Parish :Reynalton / Hundred: Narberth / OS Ref: SN090 /Reg. District :590
Place: Rhos y caerau/Parish: St. Nicholas/ Hundred: Dewisland /OS Ref : SM919 375 /Reg. District:
Place :Rudbaxton / Parish: Rudbaxton / Hundred :Dungleddy/ OS Ref: SM9620? Reg. District: 592
So 3 possible parish registers to look at around 1800 for John's birth - further details on Genuki. The ruined castle and settlement at Carew also come to mind.

It might be better (easier?) if I could see the original record and not someone's transcription of it (I had enough trouble with another rellie's record transcription due to his very thick (broad) Scottish accent.) Great-grandma's records said nothing about her grandfather being Welsh. Only the Lancashire connection. (No mention that her grandmother was from Yorkshire, either.) I was so thrilled when I found out that John was born in Wales. Never expected it to be another brick wall!
I have wondered if John moved for work, but also because there was no family left .. as was the case with my Irish line. *sigh* Oh, well. This is why we do genealogy!
I've been rather busy on a different line, mostly Devonshire and Gloucestershire, and ran across a few mentions of Welsh placenames, including Wrexham, and that (of course) triggered the "I need to know" part of my brain that brought me back to great-grand John. (This same line (the current one, not the Crewe one) also has a marriage in Aled ..even though the couple lived in England before and after. I am seeing far more movement of these people than I had believed took place!)
Sticking with your request for help identifying the family of John Crewe b 1803 Pembs - I repeat, the transcription of the 1851 census for Pembrokeshire was undertaken by Dyfed FHS for the benefit of their membership, to which I happen to belong. You'll need to join to access their resources directly - https://www.dyfedfhs.org.uk/ - but you'll still find there were no members of the Crewe famiy recorded in the county in the1851 census.
Genuki is a free site and may also provide some assistance - https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/wal/PEM
I will take another look at John once I am done with my Thomas and related line (Press to Gordon, Donnithorne, Williams, etc), some of which has already "taken" me to the US and Canada. (Curiosity also wants to find where the Hellings name came from, as I already tracked down where Donnithorne joined the family, starting a run of "middle" names down the generations to the present.)
Thanks for taking the time to respond! <3
Anyone think they could, maybe, help me work this one out?
