Can anyone tell me if there was a large house or dwelling called 'Brynawel' in Aberdare. My g grandfather died there in 1886, and the person present at his death was a person called Elizabeth Owen? I wondered if she was the owner of the house? He is listed as a gardener.

All information gratefully received.

I think this is the name of a former small hotel (Bed & Breakfast) in Brondeg Terrace (Off Pendarren Street) in Aberdare. I believe a family called LLOYD live there.

Could this be connected to your search?
My Gt.Gfthr was a Philip Owen(s) a shoemaker who I believe had a shop in Aberdare. He was born c.1837,in Narberth His wife was Martha and children were:-
Eliza born c.1860, Saudersfoot; Richard born c.1864 Aberdare
Thomas born c.1867 Aberdare; Emily(my G.mthr) born 1869, Aberdare; Philip Born c.1873, Bridgend, and Albert born c.1876, Bridgend.
This was taken from the 1881 Census which shows the family at 3 Green St.,Coyty Lower,Glam. (think this is in Bridgend)
