Hi, does anyone have information on a place or house called Allen that is labelled on a 1614 map of Cheshire? (I can send links to in response as it won't let me attach it to this message?) It's situated on the Allen (Alyn) flu roughly southeast of Pulford. I can't find anything on modern maps except possibly the village of Trevalyn? Sad This was the nearest town history page I could find. I'm just curious as it's my surname and my family came from this part of wales/Cheshire Smile Many thanks in advance. Matty Grin

A route through Darland Woods - which has been used by adults, children, dogs and the occasional pony for very many years - has had signs recently installed by the new owner of the land telling the public that access is no longer permitted. If you wish to support the formal application that residents are preparing, for the route to become a Public Right of Way, please email me for details about how you can help - cynthiacrossley1@yahoo.co.uk. Many thanks. Cynthia

I am researching my family and hoping for any information regarding Sydney Evans b.1870 in Rossett. Her grandfather was Edward Evans b.1786 and lived at Cox Lane. He was involved with the Christian teachings with the Davies family. I would be grateful for any information. Kind regards.

I would like to offer my services as a dog walker, free to anyone in Rossett whose dog needs daily walks as my dogs now can no longer walk very far and I am missing the exercise. I am a very experienced dog owner and have two border collies of my own. I work from home in Rossett and can offer this early mornings and early evenings . Please contact me rcph2@btinernet.com. I would emphasise that my preference would be for a dog whose owner is genuinely unable to walk the dog concerned..

Hello All: I'm seeking any information about Roft Cottage, Burton Rd Rossett - where it stood, when it was built and demolished, who else lived there, and ideally a photo. My G-Grandfather Herbert Thorn and family lived In Roft Cottage from shortly after WW I until his wife passed away in 1938 - he then moved to Liverpool. Many years later after she retired, my Grandmother (Herbert's daughter) who lived there until she married in 1927, returned to Rossett and lived on Halkyn Terrace.

Reply to Janet and Sylvia. Looks like your both distant relatives of mine. I have tried emailing you both and private messaging, but not sure if it's worked. Would be great to hear from you and see some of the photos you have. Please try and contact me and hopefully that will work. Alan

I have been researching my grandparents' families, they lived in Rossett during the 19th and 20th C.---the Blythins and the Johnsons. I would like to fill in some of the gaps in my research I live in France and so I have had to rely on internet sites which are excellent I have quite a lot of info which I am willing to share. My great grandparents were Joseph and Annie Johnson né Williams of the Griffin Inn and Arthur and Emily Blythin né Day of Chester

Reply for Loghead. It seems we are third cousins, once removed. My Gt Grandfather was William Johnson, brother of Joseph Johnson. I have been researching my Family tree for quite a number of years now. There is a Johnson family tree on Ancestry.com that someone else is researching with photos in particular of your branch of the family, Joseph, Annie and their children. It's not you is it? Do you live in Rossett yourself? I've visited a few times and I myself have photos of a number of graves including Joseph and Annie. You can e.mail me if you like. Wink

Hello everyone. Before my Grandad died, he managed to do a family tree. He was born in the Griffin inn with his twin sister in 1925. His farther was Alfred Morris Johnson and grandparents were Joseph Johnson and Annie (Williams). Two of his uncles died in WW1 and are on the war memorial. I know aunty Dot, my grandads sister still lives in Rossett. I was just wondering if anyone had any photos from this time. I have some, but would like some more. Thank you. Alan
