Below we have a few "bits and pieces" that have come my way.  If anyone can shed a light on any of the following, please let me know, so that they can be put in their correct place, thank you.

Looking for any thing on this couple!
William GWILLYM/GWILYM was born "somewhere in Wales" in December 1812.  He married a woman named Mary Edwards in Abergavenny in 1840.  They moved to the United States prior to the arrival of their first child on July 9, 1845.

Looking for a place,  ie: Town / County.
Marriage:  January 7th 1730,  between: James Knowles and Elizabeth Gwyllum.
Burial:  December 30th 1789:  Margaret Gwillin.
     "          1775:   Thomas Gwillim.
     "          Unknown date:   Richard, son of Thomas and Margaret Gwilliam.

This entry came my way:-  Presume from the 1871 Census.  Also presume the place to be Bishops Castle?  Shropshire?
Emma  Gwilliam, aged 13yrs and was a gen. servant from Knighton.

Possibly Midmarch?
