Herbert Family of Cardigan Bay


Active member
My Great Grandfather was named Job Herbert Harris, whilst researching I dicovered that he was really born Job Herbert in LLanrystdd in Cardiganshire in 1854, his mother was not married her name was Mary Herbert.
She came from LLansandtfried the next village along, her parents had a farm in this village called Tyll Bach Farm.She went on to have another boy called William who was born in LLansndtfried in 1859, I do not think he ever changed his mind. Her mother died in the 1840's her name was also Mary her father was David Herbert, he died in Newquay at the age of 91,he had remarried a lady named Hannah.
I would love to know more about William and maybe if any one knows who Job's father may have been or why he changed his name to Harris.
He came to Birmingham in 1871 and married in 1876.
I apologise for the terrible spelling of the welsh names
