  Pigot's Directory 1835: more gentry and clergy  
Don't forget!
The surnames are first

Here are more of the gentry and clergy from the Brecon area.

They were people of great influence. They employed many servants and farm workers. As farm labourers often lived in cottages rented from their employer, losing your job working for the gentry often meant losing your home as well.

 

The publishers of the directory were unused to Welsh names and so there are some unusual spellings at times! Can you recognise any of them?
