      hi glen
      great index of ships,but not showing the diligence built in newport and captained by llewellyn grifith,any info on this,i am in the process of studying my family tree and this was my great great great grandfather,would be much obliged if you have any info on this

        Hi Alan, As stated in the introduction – there’s a very long way to go before this list is anything like complete, and I’m expecting it to be a work in progress for several years – I thought it worth putting the first “draft” up,but there are many many gaps. My current entry for the vessel merely reads:

        “…’Diligence’ 114t. Brigantine b. 1814 Cardigan. Captain Llewelyn Griffiths…”

        This note suggests that the vessel was built in Cardigan. It was one of the larger local vessels of the period, and possibly intend for overseas as well as coast-wise trade. As soon as I find out any more I’ll let you know, but it’s liable to be a fairly slow process. Best wishes in your own researches. Regards, Glen

      • August 30, 2015 at 10:51 am

        Hi ALAN

        The only thing I can add about the DILIGENCE is that she was definitely built in Newport (Trefdraeth), Brig rigged, built 1814 and was 100 tons registered.

        regards TOM Bennett

          Hi ALAN

          The only thing I can add about the DILIGENCE is that she was definitely built in Newport (Trefdraeth), Brig rigged, built 1814 and was 100 tons registered. In 1824 her rig was altered to a schooner and then registered as 114 tons. I do not know her fate.

      Can anyone please tell me about the wrecked boat opposite the co-op car park in Cardigan. I’ve taken a lovely picture of it as im sure many have and people ask me about it and why its still there & its name etc. but I cant seem to find anyone who knows

      Regards Kathryn

      • glen
        March 3, 2015 at 7:28 pm

        Hi Kathryn. The boat was a Fleetwood trawler called “Suandra” which caught fire in the Bay in 1976 and was towed to the mudflats opposite the Quay Street car park, Cardigan. The incident was alledly an insurance fraud, and so the owners lost possession, the insurance company wrote it off their books, and nobody claimed her for salvage. A few years ago she looked quite noble, but now she is rather forlorn. Kind Regards, Glen

        I don’t cover Newport, although I know Dilwyn Miles did a booklet on Newport mariners, and there is a Welsh Mariners website managed by a Newport man who might have more information for you.

          May 7, 2015 at 7:34 pm

          According to Mariners of Newport – Llewelyn Griffith/s (1779- 1866 of the ” Ship Inn” was owner and master of the ” Diligence. His daughter Grace, married John Davies ( 1816-75).
          Son in law John Davies was Master of the “Dilgence” from 1861-1874
          Welsh Mariners also have him listed.
          Probate Indexes died 17 Jan 1866 – retired mariner from the Merchant Services

      My grandfather Frances Carter was Coxswain of the Weymouth lifeboat Friern Watch1887-1894.

      On Nov. 25th 1888 went to the rescue of the schooner Mary Davies of Aberystwyth and rescued 3 souls.

      Regards “Suandra” I am in agreement with all your comments about her demise, but I have failed to find much about her history before she arrived in North Pembrokeshire (looking for shipwrecks to salvage)
      There was a Fleetwood trawler of this name but I am not sure if it is the same vessel

      Type MFV Fishing Trawler, Port of Fleetwood ?. Length 64 ft Draught 9 ft Built Belgium. If anyone can tell me her date of building I would love to know.

      Dear Glen,
      I notice that you have ths smack ‘Cymro’ listed which was built bu my great grandfather William Francis of J. & W. Francis, Castle Pill, Milford haven in 1888.
      I have 3 generations of shipbuilders, building ships for the local trade from around 1820 until 1922
      My earliest ancestor Thomas Francis learnt his trade of shipbuilding at Abercastle, then moved to the lower Slade Fishguard where he built many ships including the Gwaun Maid in 1846, The Anne of Cardigan in 1830, the Jane of Cardigan around the same time,also the Fishguard Lass in 1868.
      His two sons James and William opened a ship building yard in Castle Pill, Milford in the 1850′s
      Later William’s son George Paynter Francis built ships at Front Street, Pembroke Dock, the dry dock was sold in 1923 and is under a preservation order.
      Over a century or more years we have built and repaired hundreds of ships,
      I have a collection of information, letters, photographs and pictures, sale posters etc of ships that we built.
      The Cymro – official No 93432, smack, built at Castle Pill, by William Francis, sold to Master Joseph Williams of Moylegrove for a down payment of £175 and transferred to Cardigan on the 4th Feb 1893, 32 tons, length 56’4/10 ft. beam 16′ 8/10 ft, depth 6’4. On 3 July 1888 owner, builder J & W Francis On 12 July 1888 William Francis 32/64 shares and James Williams 32/64 shares.
      William Francis sold on 2nd Feb 1893. [ I have no picture ]

      Regards David

      Glen your website is impossible to navigate.

      Home page – You suggest that anyone with information contact you, but I cannot find any contact details.

      I try and search but the search button does not seem to work, and I am therefore reduced, as I do not have the time and patience to scroll through entry after entry hoping to strike lucky to message you on the first entry for Cardigan.

      My interests are Mendus of St. Dogmaels and Parry of Cardigan.

      Can you identify the following property in Cardigan from a 17th Century Will.

      “Item. Concerning my mansion house (wherein I now inhabit) with the appurtances, which heretofore I have conveyed and assured unto Christian Jenkin my Daughter my and meaning is, that the same appurtances shall stand and be assured to the benefit of my said daughter according to the true intent and meaning set down in the same writings, and I do by this my last will and testament confirm and allow , and also do give devise and bequeath unto my said daughter Christian all that one garden with the appurtances set lying and being within the said Town of Cardigan within the said County in a street called the Lower Street, between my said dwelling house on the west part, the lake or pool called Pwll Hai on the north part, the dwelling house of one Phillip John, Sailor? on the east part and the said street on the south part, to have and to hold the same unto her and her heirs forever, withal the estates, evidences and writings concerning the same.”

      As far as I can work out Elizabeth sister of Christian married my ancestor Obadiah Parry,

      The descripton of the proberty Christian the sister of Elizabeth inherited is very specific.

      Can you make any suggestions who owned in later years, as that may assist my research.

      John

        October 31, 2016 at 1:54 pm

        Hi John. The only help I can offer is that the property was on the north side of St Mary’s Street, from the description most likely lying somewhere between Numbers 9 and 20, with a greater likelihood being one of the lower numbers. The inhabitants of very few properties in Cardigan can be identified before 1800, but there were very probably large properties at this date, possibly gentry houses, at No. 9, No. 10, No 11, No. 12. No. 13, and No. 17.

    9. John Bishop
      November 12, 2016 at 7:13 pm

      Glen,

      My research suggests that the property passed down to the Morgan Family of Cardigan. John Morgan Solicitor, variously described of Llandovery and Cardigan being probably the best known.Wills and Deeds I have looked at all suggest they were Aldermen.

      Do you have a list of Aldermen on your site?

      They married others of the same social status, and in theory with some research it should be possible to trace properties passed down through the generations.

      Pritchard, Morgan, Lloyd, Davies, Stedman, Picton etc., etc. all are connected in some way.

      Any guesses?

      You mention No.9, 10, 11, 12, 13 and 17 can you identify the tenants if not owners of these properties?

      The name Dassy or Tassy also seems to be connected, do you have any information on this surname?

      I also asked about Mendus of St, Dogmaels do you have any information?

      John

      Dear Mr Johnson, I wonder if you could help identify a ship built at Cardigan described thus in 1802 – ‘a welk man of war of ten tons burden and twenty poop guns on the stocks’, a privateer to be fitted out to cruise the Irish Channel against the French. I would of course acknowledge any help you might give me. Sincerely, Daydd Huw Evans.

        I’m sorry to say that I can’t place this vessel at all. The port records are, at best, sketchy for this period.

      I am currently studying the ships built in Newport, Pembrokeshire, ie the brigs and sloops built by Levi Havard and William Lloyd. There is much cross over between the Newport built ships, the Cardigan ships and the masters of St Dogmaels vessels. When an ebook is ready I will let you know. In mean time anyone wanting info on Newport built vessels please get in touch, I probably have the answers.

      In answer to Dafydd Huw Evans enquiry of a man o war built Cardigan in 1802. A ten ton burthen ship would not be large enough to carry any ordnance. However, there are two vessels, one built in Newport, Pembs, hence Cardigan register. in 1802 and the other built Cardigan that do not fit into the usual pattern of owners or type of vessel that was being built then. In 1804 Lloyds Register of shipping there is the ELIZA a schooner built Cardigan 1801 of 149 ton owned Hammett and captain Frazer (not Welsh names) that was surveyed in London and operated to Newry. The other was built in Newport in 1802 that was called JUPITER (an odd name for a Welsh merchant vessel but the sort of name a privateer may have) a 65 ton sloop with J.Benvyn (Beynon?) as master / owner operating Dublin to Swansea.
      Let me know what you think.
