Lovell Family 2


As the Enumerators didn't have to record Gypsies in the 1841, there is no real way of knowing the numbers of Gypsies in Wales prior to 1851, apart of course from baptismal entries found in Parish records and other records etc.


1851 has the family of Major Lovell son of old Slack Lovell, b Gloucestershire ?However I found his baptism as follows :-

MAJOR LOVEL  Christening:11 JAN 1821  Shenstone, Stafford,  Parents: Father:  WILLIAM LOVEL (Slack ?)  Mother: SARAH  


1851*Town: Carmarthen County: Carmarthenshire : Wales

Major Lavell 30 B Glos Cutler

Hanna Lavell 27 b Birmingham Staffordshire

William Lavell 2 b Carmarthen Carmarthenshire

John Lavell 2 Mo b Carmarthen Carmarthenshire


There were several Lovells born Somerset and Gloucestershire ,however none appeared to be Gypsies so was Major the first to go into Wales? The total figure for all variations of the Lovell spellings was only 100 in 1851 and a 150 in 1861.


The 1861Census for Wales finds Slack's other son Thomas :-
