Re PENNANT family - John A. H. Geraint Pennant's father was Dr DYFRIG Hughes
Pennant, a doctor in Solva, Pembrokeshire. His mother was Rachel (known as

Feb. 17, 2001.Info of Ioan Phillips. What type of doctor was Dyfrig Pennant?
He was in general practice at Saundersfoot in Pembrokeshire.
They met as boys when Ioan's father had a job at Saundersfoot for a year or
two 1937-8. Dr Pennant had a converted lifeboat with sails and Ioan
remembers swimming off it! The Pennant boys also visited Ioan's family once
when they were on holiday at a house called "Riverslea" on the river at
Newport, Pemb. Ioan thinks they had left school by then.
