I just did another postcode search and there is a Sunnybank Farm at the same postcode as Llywn Deri. Could "Sunnybank" be your "Portstank"?? Google "Sunnybank Farm Rhiwderin" and you will find the name & phone no of the farmer.

Has anyone any knowledge, please, of either a place called 'Llwyderi' in Rhiwderin or what looks like 'Portstank' Cottage, also in Rhiwderin. I have looked in all the usual places, such as the gazetteers, as well as doing a Google search, but no luck. I did manage to discover that Rhiwderin is near Bassaleg, amongst other places. These addresses were given in a marriage certificate from 1935. Bit of a shot in the dark, I know, as they are probably just house names. However, the lady of the marriage was a domestic servant, and I just wondered whether Llwyderi might have been the name of the house where she worked. Her father is shown as a 'woodman on landed estate' so perhaps it might have been the same place? Also, the groom was shown as 'Box Trimmer at Steel Smelting works.' Where might that have been, please. Newport? Any info would be gratefully received. Many thanks.
