There were no answers received re. the quiz photo. The photograph showed a house in Gronant Street – although after doing a little research it could be equally be called Coastguard Street. This from “Rhyl and Round About” by J.W.Jones (1970):
“Many people are puzzled by the coat of arms which is to be seen on a house in Gronant street. Some people believe that it used to belong to a licenced house but I find this to be not so. The house used to be occupied by a coastguard named Veale and the insignia shows that it was a coastguard house.”
The census records of 1881, 1891, 1901 and 1911 show that many houses in Gronant Street were homes to members of H.M. Coastguard. Numbers 9, 11, 18, 20 and 22 in fact. Coastguards included George Hockey of Bridport, Michael Foley of Skibbereen, Co. Cork, John Connor of Hastings and Thomas Jones of Pembrokeshire.
Further research has failed to identify the coat of arms, has anyone any information?
