I have the 1862 Copi Dilys o Gofnod Genedigaeth for my great-grandmother who was born in Newport and christened at St Woolos. She'd tell you she was most definitely born in Wales, and she told the census the same!

It's a sensitive area. I have an Ottawa friend who celebrates everything Welsh, who was born in Bedwas, right up against the border with Glamorganshire, when Monmouthshire was legally in England.
