Dafydd Wyn Roberts
« on: November 04, 2014, 07:33:21 pm »
Can anyone out there help with my research. My great, g'dad I am told had a fruit/grocer shop of some kind in Llandudno pre 1930. Went by the name Dafydd Wyn Roberts. Any info is much appreciated. Thanks Jim.

This might be nothing other than a coincidence but there is a thread here on pg 2 under the heading T Toberts Roby House.    They were grocers and just may have been related.
At the Conwy Archives in Llandudno they have Llandudno Street Indexes for 1911, 1914, 1922, 1926 and 1929 and they list the breadwinners living in every property in the town.  They are listed alphabetically so are easy to trace.  Perhaps once we can find Dafydd's address it may help with your search

I'm hoping to go to the Conwy Archives tomorrow about something else but will have a look in the Street Indexes for you and see if I can find any address.

In 1929, as well as T Roberts and sons Roby House, 114 Mostyn Street,  there was a  Lloyd Roberts at 27  Lloyd street;   the Proprietor was  a Miss Lloyd Roberts. Also listed as Grocers are F.W Roberts, P.O. 19 Ty Gwyn Road, Owen Henry Roberts in Alexandra Road, and a Wholesaler John Thomas Roberts at Bryn-Bras, Claremont Road.
My own grandfather David Price Roberts had the grocers at the corner of Oxford and Howard Road (later Plants) in the 1930's!

I remember the Tuck Shop when the Plants had it, it was very handy when I was in John Bright's in the early 60's

I did go to the Archives today and had a look in the Street Indexes but I couldn't see any entry for Dafydd Wyn Jones.   Sorry JR  but I can't help you any further.

After logging in, have a look at the first item in FAQ in the Welcome thread.

Land That Howard Road Stands On...

Hiya,

I was wondering if any one knows what was on the land on which the houses of Howard Road now stand?
Thanks...

Where Howard Road is now was originally split between two land holdings - Cae Newydd, a meadow which lay roughly north east from where Howard Place is now and included most of the Asda car park.  The other was to the south west and included Builder Street West, it was a pasture called Ynys Vuryn.  Both plots were in the ownership of Lady Charlotte Mostyn Champneys.
