Hi Rob,
Do you know of a EMANUEL family who was living in 1861 in Maentwrog, Merionethshire, North Wales?

Rhian writes:
1. there is a good likelihood that Rice Morris' father was Manuel (or Emanuel) Morris. The patronymic system would lead him to take a second name of Manuel whereas the English surname system would make it Morris.
or 2. as a long shot Manuel may have been the wife's maiden name, but it isn't very likely though since his wife came from Llanelltyd and locals may not have known her family origins.
or 3. By the way, there was a family called Emanuel in the area in the late 20th century but I know nothing of their origins.

1851 Tafarn Trip, a farm on the part of the parish of F(f)estiniog which borders on the parish of Maentwrog, the other side of the river.
1861 Wales Census Civil Parish: Maentwrog; County: Merionethshire; Country: Wales Source info: RG9/4325; Registration Dist: Festiniog; Sub-Registration Dist: Festiniog ED 8, Folio 32, page 8, household # 46, GSU # 543269 Farm: Pandy'r ddwyryd. MANUEL, Rice or Rich - head - Mar - 57 - Farmer of 40(?) acres - Merionethshire,
Maentwrog
Jane - wife - Mar - 62 - Merionethshire, Llanellltyd Abraham - son - Un - 17 - Merionethshire, Maentwrog

Many THANKS :) in advance,
Jan J. <jnrose@webtv.net>
