Hi Mike

just read an old post from Graham of Shropshire, regarding the name of a farm, which set me wondering if my search relating to Rhos Cadwgan or Rhos cy dwgan could actually be the name of a farm rather than an area ?  Greta

Hello Greta

I had a good search of old and modern maps and a Shropshire Gazetteer but couldn’t find anywhere which appeared to match your place name. It may be that the name has gone out of use, or as you comment it might have been the name of a property, which again may no longer exist. I also looked through a few pages of the parish register to see if that offered any clues and I would suggest you try scrolling through the register in both directions as well as the other registers for the parish in the hope that a clue appears.
