Daniel Jones showing as living in China Fach, Dyffryn Clydach, Cadoxton in 1871 census (RG10/5437 page 14).
Does anybody know of China Fach - is that a correct transcription ?
 
Hello David and welcome to the Forum.

I have no access to the image of that census so will have to wait for a member who does.

Dyffryn Clydach is a hamlet so 'China Fach' whatever it is would be even smaller ?? or the name of a farm or ?

My Harris family came from Skewen. I have other families in my tree from Cadoxton and Briton Ferry.

If you google China Fach you find an article about a locality of Merthyr Tydfil with that name, but nothing for any other place. On the relevant census page there are 7 families (22 people) living there but no street numbers - I am wondering if it may be a large building of some sort.
 
I purchased the census page from FindMyPast, but when I click on the 'Next' button to see the next page I get a system error, so I can't see other entries around it. I'll try again tomorrow - thanks for your responses.
 
I have found out where China Fach was by looking at multiple pages of the census - it was between Neath Abbey Road and the ruins of Neath Abbey monastery. As there were no street numbers on the census pages I don't know if it was one building or a row of buildings, but on an 1876 map there does seem to be one row of buildings. Will try to find in earlier/later censuses.
Thanks for looking Dave and Emeltee
