Lydia would appear to have been born a village near Oswestry called Selattyn ( rather than the spellling on the census).

Helig, that's an interesting find and it also raises questions too.   If Edward was born in 1839 I wonder why he was living with John and Mary Roberts when he was only about 2 or 3 years old.
Pwll Y Moch  ( Eng.   Pool of the Pig )  seems to be still there and is not far from the Llanrwst Road but quite a way from the old Church of Llagelynin
Lydia is an unusual name so you could be right with your thoughts on Edward and Lydia

DVT, thank you for your explanation because I couldn’’t find one elsewhere.

Please can I also enquire why the rally cars didn’t go around the Great Orme, as they usually do?

Brian Roberts asks ... "After 64 years, I wonder what is so special about this year’s Cambrian Rally for it to close Mostyn Street and so many side roads?"

This year was the first time ever for the event to be a round of the British Rally Championship, and was fully supported by Conwy County Borough Council and the Llandudno Town Council, who were the instigators of holding the event right in the public eye by closing off the town centre.  This is an arrangement often found on European events, the most notable one being the Tour of Ypres in Belgium, but was the first time that a town centre has been used in this way in Britain - several events have used town centres for starts or finishes, but never to this extent.

The publicity this has gained is immense and has shown Llandudno all round the world as a place for major events.  This year's Cambrian attracted competitors from Chile, Argentine, Spain, USA, Cyprus and the Channel Islands as well as all corners of the UK and Ireland, and spectators from all over Europe ... the top three drivers were Welsh, Scottish and Irish whilst the National B event top three were Scottish, English and Irish!

Llandudno is fast becoming a top place for major events thanks to the Events Department, including cycling and athetic events which have closed roads ... and the Wales Rally GB looks to be based here later this year - the Cambnian was a huge learning curve in preparation for that event.

For the team at North Wales Car Club, and all the assistance from other motor clubs in the North-West, this was a major operation and a lot of issues happened along the way, but in the end it has come out as a very successful and highly-praised event.

REIGNING British Rally Champion Matt Edwards took a sensational victory on home soil as he kick-started his title defence in the best possible style by wining the Visit Conwy Cambrian Rally.

Along with new co-driver Patrick Walsh, the M-Sport driver, who is from Rhos-on-Sea, won the opening round of the season in fine style by winning the Llandudno-based event by 26.5 seconds.

Fix My Street / Safe passing space needed, 10th February

Safe passing space needed, 10th February

On the bend towards the southern end of Coed Coch Road, there is often no passing space. This means that cars are forced onto the wrong side for a long distance. If yellow lines were created on the bend to provide a passing space this would make it a safer route. The passing space needs to be large enough for a bus as this is a bus route.
Nearest road to the pin placed on the map (automatically generated by Bing Maps): 146 Coed Coch Road, Old Colwyn

Kids running riot are the fault of the parents. As are badly behaved dogs.

Kids and Dogs Hugo,  I suffered at the hands (or paws) of both of them yet again this morning.
It could only have been worse if I’d been accosted by a group of dogs, who smoke! 😂
