Updated: Feb 3, 2019

Richard Strong of Caernarfon, Wales, was my mother's maternal 10th great-grandfather. He was born in 1561 in Wales. His family originated in Shropshire. This map outlines the county of Shropshire.

When one of the men of his family married an heiress of Griffith. the family moved to Caernarvon (Caernarfon) in Gwynedd County in 1545. (Griffith and Reese/Rhys were two ruling families of Wales for hundreds of years). Richard was born in Caernarfon in 1561.

This map shows Caernarfon as it was in 1610, almost fifty years after Richard Strong was born there.
