Memories of Brynteg

Holborn Crescent, Brynteg

Nell tells about her stay in Brynteg, my great grandparents Rachel and Peter Povey lived at 24 Holborn Crescent - a council house. They knew the Wynne's, and Peter was a retired miner. Rachel died in at number 24 in 1942, Peter in 1950. There is still a whole host of my Povey relations living in and around Wrexham. Brynteg was a nice place and I once had a house by that name.
