John and Mary Griffith

The area around the Church where Mary and Jenny lived is thought to have been one of several small houses, the dwelling they lived in " Tanyriwen " is no longer standing. If we look in the 1881 Census, Mary gave her age as 66 and a widower and Jenny Jones 92, Jenny was described as handicapped and blind.

Mary's husband was John Griffith Lewis’s brother and by the time the 1881 census was taken he must have died. John and Mary appear in many of the censuses for Talyllyn as inn keepers or publicans. I have managed to put together the following information about John and Mary.
