Forchaman  Glamorgan


In 1870-72, John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales described Forchaman like this:

FORCHAMAN, a hamlet in Aberdare parish, Glamorgan; at the confluence of the Amman and the Cynon, 5½ miles SSW of Merthyr-Tydvil. Real property, £54, 871; of which £16, 718 are in mines, £15, 000 in ironworks, £90 in railways, and £480 in gas-works. See Aberdare.

The location is where the name "Forchaman" appears, somewhat illegibly, on our nineteenth century First Series map. Additional information about this locality is available for Aberdar
