1891 Census

The censuses of Glascoed as recorded here are of the Glascoed that the census enumerators recorded. I was informed by Olwen Hughes that the Glascoed she remembered growing up included an additional 15 properties which although in the parish of Llanbaddock, are really part of the Glascoed community. I have added Upper House (Llanbaddock) - there’s an Upper House (Glascoed) already recorded - and Upper Wernhir. The others will be added later in the year: Berthlan, Clearwell, Glen View, Green Tree, Greenmeadow Cottage, Greenpool farm, High Cross, Llanynant, New House (again Llanbaddock to distinguish from Glascoed parish’s version), Ty Mawr and Tynycaia.

NB, No disabilities were noted against the names of any of the inhabitants on this census, so the data has been therefore omitted.
