Blacksmiths Of Talley

A Memory of Talley.

Although I have only recently been to Talley on researching my family history my roots go back to the village well into the 1700s. The family I speak about is the Griffiths family of Blaenag Isaf, they were the blacksmiths of the village right up until 40 years ago.
Nearly all of William Griffith's sons also became blacksmiths in and around the villages.
William was my G G G grandfather, we are connected to many families within the area and are also related to the Griffiths family of Cwmdu.
On researching the family I have become very interested not just in the geneology of my family but of the area and the life they had.

I am very proud of my roots, it can't have been an easy life that they led.
