John Cattell (May/2007) - A connection to St. Davids Hotel

Good evening, Have just come across your web site and am fascinated. Why - Read on :- I was born at Barmouth Maternity Home on the 16th June 1945. My Grandmother owned and ran St. David's Hotel up by St Johns Church. I am the eldest son of George Thomas Cattell and Margaret (nee Pickles) who also lived prior to their marriage at St David's Hotel. We moved from Barmouth to Glanaig, Llwyngwril were to put in a nutshell had a wonderful childhood with my two younger brothers - Christopher Robin and Noel. We all three went to Llwyngwril Primary School and moved onto to Towyn Grammar School. Although everybody here in Birmingham knows me as John I was actually christened Arthur and I guess that's what a lot of mates from those days of the 1950 and 60's would know me as. I will leave there for now and if interested await any comments or questions you may have. Regards Arthur "John" Cattell

Royce Emley (May/2007) - A writer, born in Barmouth,lived in Aston House

John, Your site was an important find to me. I was born in Barmouth, Wales, December 15, 1941 in ASTON HOUSE on Marine Road.. My father owned it ...his name (Jack) John Henry Robinson. My mother Ida divorced him when I was 2 and moved me first in 1943 to Lancaster England . Then in 1952 we imigrated to Canada. After finishing art school I imigrated to Florida. I am now a well established wrirter and artist. I only recieved two letters from my father before his death in 1982 and know nothing about him or his family. I was told that after his death a young man who worked and lived with him at Aston House inherited the place. It probably was sold and renamed by this time. I am now 65 and retired and find I have time to research the Robinson family from Barmouth. I have one photo taken at my Grandfathers funeral that shows Jack and a lot of brothers and a sister and grandmother. Several of him with a beer in hand since I was told he kept the local PUB in business. I also have a mystery brother. While looking for insite to my birth history I discoverd I was born a twin I was born an identical twin. My twin brothers name was Ian Robinson, I was named Royce Robinson. I was told he died shortly after birth. true or false? I have no idea! The only way to find out is to visit the church. My Mother said he was buried outside the church walls because he was not babtised and the Church would not have records. Curiosity drives me to know more about where I was born. Your site is the closest I have come to visiting it. Thank You... The quest continues. Best regards Royce Emley.

Julien Robins (April/2007) - Went to Barmouth primary school and Ysgol Ardudwy

Hi John, I have just taken the best trip through memory lane ever. I attended Barmouth primary school in 1967 and then on to Harlech. I read a story from Steven brooks about living at the Barmouth quay. He is my cousin. My name is Julien Robins. I had the nickname " yank " for the longest time. We lived in Barmouth with my grandparents and then moved to tal-y-bont. I was in the ATC at LLanbedr. I know live in Maryland and soon moving to Florida. I would love to talk with you about people from back home etc. I was born in 1957 so you are a tick older than me. I also have to admit my memory has faded some but I do remember more as I search through all the info. I have been sharing stories and pics with my 12 year old son Ian. He has seen pics from back then and loves looking at the ones now on computer. Hope very we can share stories about people etc. My very best to you. Julien.
