HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 



SWYDD Y WAUN, OR CHIRKLAND. 

CANTREF TREFRYD. 

This cantref contains three comots, viz. : 1, Croes 
Faen ; 2, Tref y Waun ; and 3, Croes Oswallt or Oswes- 
try. 

The comots of Croes Faen and Tref y Waun appear 
to have both been known as simply Y Waun, and this 
district, and all Cantref Rhaiadr and Nant Heudwy, 
were united under the Mortimers into one territory 
called the Swydd y Waun, the Lordship of Chirk, or 
Chirkland. It contains the parishes of Llanfair or Y 
Waun iBaf (Chirk), Llangollen, and parts of the parishes 
of Llansantffraid Glyn Ceiriog, Llanarmon Mynydd 
Mawr, Llanarmon DyflFryn Ceiriog, Llanrhaiadr ym 
Mochnant, Llangedwin, Llansilin, Llangadwaladr, and 
Tref Dudlysh or Dudlyston. 



PARISH OF CHIRK. 

This parish contains the manors or townships of Chirk, 
Bryn Cunallt, Pen y Clawdd, Gwern Ospin, and Halch- 
dyn or Halton. 

JtfANOR OF HALCHDYN. 

The manor of Halchdyn or Halton was given by 
Madog ab Gruffydd Maelor, Prince of Powys Fadog, to 
the Abbey of Valle Crucis or Llanegwestl in 1200. This 
manor, and certain lands belonging to it, remained in the 
possession of the abbey till it was dissolved in 1535, 

VOL. IV. 1

when they were seized by Henry VIII, and they re- 
mained in the Crown till 14th James I, 1617, when they 
were granted (for the sum of £75 and £40) to John 
Knight ; John Weddall ; William Dickenson, senior ; 
William Dickenson, junior ; Matthew Robinson ; and 
Sir Thomas Middleton, knight ; and Richard Swale of 
Green Hamerton, in the county of York, gentleman. 

The following are the names of the places granted by 
James I to the above-mentioned persons : all the seig- 
norial lands (** omncs terras dominicalcs") of the manor 
of Halton or Halghton, all the separate lands in H niton 
and Chirk of Maes y Mynydd, Y Bryn Krayth, Maes y 
Penylan, Erw Fadog and Glidfa, Maes Llanerch Gorh, 
Pant y Fallt, Maes y Llwyn Gwern, Maes y Cwrt ; Ty 
David ab Sir John and Maredydd Trevor, £5 ; all once 
belonging to Valle Cruris, formerly a monastery. Fur- 
ther particulars relative to this manor will be found 
among the documents of the reign of James I in this 
volume. 



CASTELL CROGEN, OR CHIRK CASTLE. 

The first notice I have been able to find relative to 
this castle is in the year 1202, at which time, when 
Elissau, Lord of Edeyrnion, the fourth son of Madog ab 
Maredydd, Prince of Powys Fadog, was deprived of his 
lordship for not aiding Llywelyn ab Iorwerth against 
Gwenwynwyn, this castle and seven townships, two of 
which, Crogen Iddon and Crogen Wladys, close to the 
castle, were given him out of compassion by his nephew, 
Prince Llywelyn ab Iorwerth. In 1281, Edward I, 
King of England, gave this castle and the lordship of 
Chirk to Roger Mortimer as before related (vol. i, p. 
178) ; and, on getting possession, Roger Mortimer built 
the present castle, on the site of Castell Crogen as is 
generally supposed. 

The following pedigree of the Mortimers is taken 
from Dugdales and Banks' Extinct Baronies.

MORTIMERS, LORDS OF CHIRK. 

The first of this name that appears in history is Roger 
de Mortimer, the founder of the Abbey of St. Victoirc 
in Normandy. In a.d. 1054, when Odo, brother of 
Henry, King of France, invaded the territory of Eureux, 
William, Duke of Normandie, sent this Roger, then his 
general, with Robert, Earl of Ewe, to resist his attempt ; 
who, meeting Odo near the Castle of Mortimer, gave him 
battle and obtained a glorious victory. This Roger de 
Mortimer was related to William the Conqueror, Duke 
of Normandy, as his mother was niece of Gunnora, wife 
of Richard, Duke of Normandy, great-grandmother of 
the Conqueror. 

Ralph, or Radulphus de Mortimer, son of Roger, ac- 
companied Duke William upon his invasion of England, 
and was one of the chief commanders of the whole army; 
and shortly after this signal conquest, as the most puis- 
sant of his captains, was sent into the Marches of Wales 
to encounter Edrich, Earl of Shrewsbury and Lord of 
Wigmore, as he would not submit to the Norman yoke. 
After great toil and a long siege he took the Castle of 
Wigmore and delivered Earl Edrich a captive into the 
hands of the King, who gave Roger all the Earl's lands ; 
whereupon he strongly fortified the Castle of Dyrecke in 
Maelienydd, formerly built by Earl Edrich. 

This Ralph conquered Elvael, and did homage to King 

William for it. 

1 * 



4 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

He married, first, Milicent, daughter of Ferrers, 

Earl of Derby, l>y whom he had a son and heir, Hugh. 

Hugh de Mortimer refused to do homage to Henry II, 
on the death of King Stephen. In 1154, his castle of 
Cleobury was besieged, taken, and dismantled ; and on 
the surrender of his Castle of Bridgenorth in 1154, he 
made his submission to the King, and afterwards rebuilt 
his Castle of Cleobury. He also founded and endowed 
the Abbey of Wigmore, and in his old age he became a 
canon professed in the Abbey, and died Feb. 26th, 1181, 
and was buried in the Abbey of Wigmore before the 
high altar, leaviug a son and heir, 

Roger de Mortimer, Lord of Cleobury Mortimer, and 
Wigmore. He was engaged in constant warfare with 
the Welsh, and his neighbour Hugh de Say. He married 
Isabella, sister and heiress of Hugh de Ferrars, son of 
Walkeline de Ferrars, Lord of Ferrieres in Normandy, 
Lord of Okeham in Rutland, and of Lechlade and Laye- 
bury in Gloucestershire. Isabella founded the nunnery 
of Lechlade, and was there buried. Roger died 8 of the 
Kalends of July 1215, and was succeeded by his son and 
heir, 

Hugh de Mortimer, who, having been wounded in a 
tournament, died without issue, 4 Ides Nov. 1227, and 
was succeeded by his brother, 

Ralph de Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore, who fought 
successfully against Llywelyn ab Iorwerth, Prince of 
Wales, and built the Castles of Cefn y Llys and Cnwclas 
in Maelicnydd. He married Gwladys Ddu, relict of 
Reginald de Braose, Lord of Brecknock, and daughter of 
Llywelyn, Prince of Wales, who gave her, as her dower, 
all his lands in Ceri and Cydewain, and all the castles 
and forts in both lordships. 

Ralph de Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore, died 8 of the 
Ides of August 1246 (30th Henry III), and was buried 
with his ancestors in the Abbey of Wigmore, leaving 
issue, four sons — 1, Roger, his successor, a minor at the 
time of his father's death; 2, Peter; 3, John, a grey friar 
at Shrewsbury ; and 4, Hugh.

SWYDD Y WAUN, OR CHIRKLAND. 5 

Roger dc Mortimer, Lord of Wigmore, the eldest son, 
married Maude, the eldest daughter and co-heiress of 
William de Braose, Lord of Brecknock, with whom he 
had the Lordship of Radnor, and other fair possessions in 
England and Wales. 

This Roger was with the king in Normandy, and there- 
fore had a special discharge of the scutage, then levied, 
by reason of that expedition. 

About this time, Rhys, Prince of South Wales, having 
raised an army, and taken the town of Caermardden, as 
also the Castles of Caermardden and Colynwy or Clun, 
likewise besieged Radnor. This Roger came with Hugh 
de Say, Lord of Richard's Castle, for the relief of that 
place, but was beaten with great loss, as my author re- 
porteth. 

In 16 John, 1215, he was acquitted of the scutage, 
then levied for the expedition into Poictou ; his son 
being then in that service. 

About this time, Hywel, son of Cadwallawn, and 
Madog, son of Maelgron, pretending that they had a 
right to the territory of Maelienydd in fee farm, for a 
great sum of money procured a trial at law for the same, 
by twelve knights of the counties of Hereford and Salop, 
but upon full hearing of the cause at Shrewsbury, the 
right was adjudged to this Roger. 1 

Having had many skirmishes with the Welsh, and 
most valiantly opposing their frequent incursions, he 
took twelve of their principal leaders in one battle. 

He was appointed captain of the kings army and for- 
tifications in the parts of Shrewsbury, so as to annoy 
Llywelyn, Prince of Wales, as much as he could. Wor- 
cester, 7 July 1277. (Rot. Pat., 5 Edw. I, m. 9.) 

He also enlarged his territories, and drove away thieves 
and robbers from those parts ; and, being once present 
at the solemn anniversary of his father, he confirmed all 
his grants to the Canons of Wigmore, adding, of his own 
gift, a spacious and fruitful pasture, lying near to that 
Abbey, called the Treasure of Mortimer. Whereupon,

his steward blaming him, that he should dispossess him- 
self of a field so rich and fertile, and for that reason 
called the Treasure of Mortimer, he replied, " I have 
laid up my treasure in that field where thieves cannot 
steal or dig, or moth corrupt." 

This Roger died at Shenstone, on the eve of the Feast 
of SS. Simon and Jude (1282), 10 Edw. I, and was 
buried in the Abbey of Wigmore, with this epitaph : — 



" Hie est sepultus qui mansit laude refultus, 
Rogerus Mundus, de Morte Marina secundus : 

Cui fuerat gratus, Dominus Wigmorae vocitatus. 

Hanc dum viverat, vi Wallia tota timebat, 
Et sibi donata permansit Wallia tota. 
Militiam scivit, semper torta subivit." 

He had issue five sons — 1, Sir Ralph, who died in his 
father's lifetime ; 2, Edmund, Lord Mortimer of Wig- 
more, his successor, father of Roger Mortimer, who, 2nd 
Edw. Ill, was made Justiciary of Wales, and Earl of 
March ; 3, Roger, Lord Mortimer of Chirk (see vol. i, p. 
1 78) ; 4, Sir William ; and 5, Sir Geofiroi, who died in 
his father's lifetime. 

Roger, the third son of Roger, Lord Mortimer, was 
summoned to Parliament among the Barons, from the 
second to the fourteenth of Edward I. Having got pos- 
session of Chirk, as before stated (see vol. i, p. 1 78), he 
built the Castle ; and, in 21st Edw. I (1293), he was in 
that expedition that the king made into France, at which 
time, divers towns and places of strength yielding to the 
English army, he was made Governor of Burgh super 
Mare, anciently called Mont Alban. 

In 22nd Edw. I, he had summons, amongst others, to 
attend the king at Portsmouth, upon 1st Sept., well fur- 
nished with horse and arms, and thence sailed with him 
into Gascoigne ; in consideration of which service, he had, 
the year following, an exemption, for himself and his 
tenants, from paying any part of the tenths then granted 
to the King in Parliament. 

In 25th Edw. I (1297), he was again in the wars of 
Gascoigne; and, in the 28th Edw. I, in the Scottish wars. 



SWYDD Y WAUN, OR CHIRKLAND. 7 

So, likewise, in the 29th, being then in the retinue of 
Edward, Prince of Wales. 

In 31st Edw. I (1303), he was again in Scotland ; 
and, in 1st Edw. II (1307), constituted the King's Lieu- 
tenant of Wales, having all the castles therein com- 
mitted to his trust, and then also made Justiciary of all 
Wales. 

In 2nd Edw. II (1308), he was made Governor of the 
Castle of Beaumaris in Anglesey ; and, in 4th Edw. II 
(1310), Governor of the Castles of Blaen Llyfeni and 
l)inas, being the same year also in the wars in Scotland ; 
and in 5th Edw. II, had the inheritance of the Castles of 
Blaen Llyfeni and Dinas given to him by the King, to 
hold for the third part of a Barony, by the service of two 
knights' fees. 

In 7th Edw\ II (1314), he was again in Scotland, and 
the same year obtained a charter for a market every 
week, upon Monday, at his Lordship of Old Whiteland in 
Wales ; and a fair on the eve, day, and morrow after 
the Feast of the Nativity of the Virgin Mary, 

In 10th Edw. II (1317), he was constituted Justiciary 
of North Wales, and in the same year went again to the 
wars in Scotland. In 1 1 th Edw. II, he was charged with 
the finding of 100 men, out of his Lordships of Blaen 
Llyfeni and Talgarth ; and of 200 more, out of his terri- 
tories of Llandedu, for the wars of Scotland. 

In 12th Edw. II (1319), he was again in those wars, 
and had an assignation of £100, in recompense of his 
services there, in which year also he was constituted Go- 
vernor of Buallt Castle in Wales. 

In 16th Edw. Ill (1329), being one of those lords who 
gave sentence of banishment against the two Spencers, in 
the Parliament then held, by their power aud potency at 
that time, he soon felt that the active part he took in that 
quarrel would be the occasion of his ruin ; for the King 
getting strength, forced his oppose rs to stoop. Where- 
upon this Roger, with his nephew, the Lord Mortimer of 
Wigmore, submitting themselves, were imprisoned in the 



8 HISTORY OF POWY3 FADOG. 

Tower of London, where it is said by some that this Roger 
died 1 

It is said by others, 3 of this Roger, partly by reason 
that his Manor of Chirk was annexed to the Lordship of 
the Earl of Arundel, and partly by means of his adver- 
saries, being cast into the Tower of London, he there 
continued for the space of full four years and a half, 
where, without ever being heard, he died 3rd August 
1337 (10th Edw. Ill), and that thence his corpse, being 
brought to Wigmore, was there buried in the Abbey by 
Adam, Bishop of Hereford, upon the day after the Exal- 
tation of the Holv Cross. 3 

This Roger Mortimer gave lands in the townships of 
Gwern Osbern and Pen y Clawdd in the Lordship of 
Chirk, to Iorwerth Foel ab Iorwerth Fvchan ab Iorwerth 
Hen, of the Tribe of Xantheudwy, on payment of a rent 
of £20 sterling per annum. The witnesses of this grant 
were : — 

leuaf ab Adda, Lord of Trefor ; 

Llewelyn, hi3 son ; 

Owain ab Gruffydd Foel ; 

Sir Hwfa, his brother ; 

Llewelyn ab Cynwrig ab Osbern ; 

Madog ab Cynwrig Foel. 

Attached to the deed is the seal of Roger Mortimer, 
with this circumscription : "Sigillum Rogeri de Mortui 
Mare." 4 (See vol. i, p. 313.) 

Roger Mortimer (Medd Rhys Cain) yn rhoddi Gafael

Roger Mortimer married Lucia, daughter of Sir Robert 
de Wafre, Knt., by whom he had issue Roger Mortimer, 
Lord of Chirk and Nantheudwy (which last place appears

now to have been included first in the Swydd y Waun, 
or Lordship of Chirk), who married Joan Tuberville, by 
whom he had issue John Mortimer, Lord of Chirk, who 
sold the Castle and Lordship of Chirk to Richard Fitz- 
Alan, Earl of Arundel. 

The Castle and Lordship of Chirk remained in the 
possession of descendants of the said Richard Fitz- 
Alan, Earl of Arundel, till the death of John Mowbray, 
fourth Duke of Norfolk, Lord of Chirk and the moiety 
of Bromfield and IW, 15th Edw. IV (1476), when the 
Lordships of Bromfield, Chirk, and I&l, and the Castles 
of Dinas Bran, Holt, and Chirk reverted to the Crown. 
(See vol. i, p. 389.) 

In 1483, the Castle of Dinas Bran, and the Lordship 
of Bromfield, were granted to Sir William Stanley, Knt., 
by King Richard III, who was slain in 1485. 

In 1490, Henry VII, in the fifth year of his reign, 
gave all the above-mentioned Lordships of Bromfield, 
Chirk, and Ial, and the Castles of Dinas' Bran, Holt, 
and Chirk to Sir William Stanley, Knt., as before re- 
lated. Sir William thoroughly repaired Chirk Castle, 
which, with the other Castles and Lordships, were taken 
possession of by the King on the execution of Sir William, 
for his attempting to place Perkin Warbeck on the 
throne. 

The Castle and Lordship were subsequently granted 
by Queen Elizabeth to her favourite, Robert Dudley, 
Earl of Leicester, from whom they came to Lord St. 
John of Bletsoe, who, in 1595, sold them and Castle 
Dinas Bran to Sir Thomas Myddleton, in whose family 
they still continue.

44 HISTORV OF POWYS FADOG. 

ab Ticho Tyrode ab Gwilfyw ah Marchudd ab Bran ab 
Pill ab Cervyr ab Milifron ab Gwron ab Cunedda Wledig, 
who is said to have been King of Gwynedd in 330, that 
is, during the time that the province of Britannia Se- 
cunda, of which Gwynedd or Venedocia was a portion, 
formed a part of the Roman Empire ; but it was not till 
after the departure of the Roman legions from Britain in 
448, that any part of this province fell under the 
government of the Britons. At any rate, we know that 
the ancestors of the present nobility and gentry of Bri- 
tish descent had not arrived in Powys-land before 448. 
For Vortigern, the common ancestor of the kings and 
princes of Powys, and the tribe of Tudor Trevor, died 
in that year, and his descendant, Cad ell Deyrnilwg, 
from whom both lines descend, did not become King of 
Powys till the middle of the sixth century. He came 
most probably from those parts of Lloegr now known as 
the counties of Gloucester, Hereford, and Wilts. The 
royal tribe of Elystan Glodrudd only conquered the 
country between the Wye and the Severn in the tenth 
century. This tribe also are said to have come origin- 
ally from Gloucestershire. Both Cadell Deyrnilwg 
and Elystan Glodrudd appear to have been driven from 
their original settlements by the conquests of the Eng- 
lish, and then to have marched to the north-west, and 
conquered the original inhabitants. I therefore think 
that it is very improbable that the princes of Gwynedd 
could have had any power whatever before the Roman 
legions left Britain ; or that Cunedda Wledig, who came 
from Scotland or Cumberland, could have conquered the 
Gwyddelod, the ancient inhabitants of Gwynedd, and all 
Powys-land and Maelienydd, and imposed the names 
of his sons on the various districts. Our historians 
affirm that he did so as early as the year 330, at which 
time Constantine, the first of the emperors who became 
a Christian, was reigning, having succeeded the Emperor 
Diocletian in 305. Cunedda flourished circa 530.

Cynwrig), by whom he had issue : 1, Madog, of whom 
presently ; 2, Einion ab Rhirid. 

Einion ab Khirid was slain by an arrow at the siege 
of the Castle of Din-serth or Diserth, in Tegeingl, at a 
place since called Bryn Einion, in 1261. The cross 
which was erected on the spot where he fell, has been 
removed from its original site to the churchyard at 
Diserth. It has the same sort of interlaced ornamenta- 
tion as Maen Achwynfan, which is not far from this 
place. According to Gruffydd Hiraddug, it once bore 
the following inscription : — 

" Oc si petatur, lapis yste kansa notatur 
Einion oxi* Kirid Flaidd films hoc memoratur/' 

His son, Einion Greulon, was Lord of Crugaeth, in the 
lordship of Croes Oswald. Rhiridd Flaidd had also, 
among others, a daughter named Gwenllian, who married 
Gruffydd of Henglawdd, son of Ednyfed Fychan, Lord 
of Bryn Ffanigl, by whom she was mother of Sir Howel 
y Pedolau, 1 who was knighted by Edward II, to whom 
he was foster-brother, and was noted for his great 
strength. His monumental effigy in the church of 
Caermarthen represented him recumbent in armour, 
breaking a horseshoe with his hands ; and this monu- 
ment remained till it was broken by some plasterers. 
He was the ancestor of Gruffyd Llwyd of Kinmael, 
whose daughter and heiress Alice was the second wife of 
Richard ab Ievan ab David ab Ithel Fychan of Llaneur- 
gain, in Tegeingl, whose daughter and heiress Catherine 
married Pyers Holland ab John Holland, ancestor of the 
Hollands of Kinmael. 

The following englyn was composed in honour of 
Rhirid Flaidd, by the bard Cynddelw. (See vol. i, pp. 
320-326.) 

" Mae im Flaidd a'm Car, o'm caffael wrthaw 
Yn wrthel gerth, Afaes, 
Nid blaidd Coed williaidd allael 

Ond Blaidd Maes, moosawg a hael. ,,

1 Iarddur of Penrhyn, waa the son of Trahairn ab Cynddelw ab 
Pod ab Pasgen ab Helig ab Glanog ab Gwgan Gleddyf Rhudd ab 
Caradog Freichfras, King of Brycheiniog, and was the ancestor of the 
Coetmors of Coetmor. The last heir male of this family, Robert 
Coetmor, who died in May 1 725, had an only daughter and heiress 
Mary, who married Edward Philip Pugh of Penrhyn, in Creuddyn, 
by whom she had an only daughter and heiress, Bridget, who was 
married 11th January 1766, to Colonel Glynn Wynne, a younger 
brother of the first Lord Newborough, the issue of which marriage 
was three sons and a daughter. The sons died issueless, and the 
daughter, Bridget, married John Percival, fourth Earl of Egmont, 
who died in 1835. Bridget, Countess of Egmont, died 24th January 
1836, and left an only son, Henry Frederick Joseph James, fifth Earl 
of Egmont, who died without issue, 23rd December 1841. The 
Lloyds of Rowtyn, the Wynns of Pen Heskin, and the Joneses of Pen 
yr Allt, near Beaumaris, likewise descend from Iarddur. 

2 Penrhyn is in the parish of Llandegai, in Llechwedd Uchaf. 

3 Y Llechwedd Uchaf is one of the three comots of Cantref Aber, 
the other two being Y Llechwedd Isaf, and Nant Conwy.

two being Uwch Dulas and Is'Dulas.

88 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

CAREG HWFA CASTLE. 

This castle was situate on the banks of the river 
Efernwy. There are no vestiges of it now remaining 
except the foss which guarded it on the east. It was 
taken in 1162 by Owain Cyfeiliog and his cousin Owain 
ab Madog, the latter of whom, after keeping possession 
of it for twenty-five years, was besieged here and slain 
by his relations. 

Within a mile of this castle lies Gwern y Fign, where 
a battle was fought about the year 1200. 



MORRALL OF CILHENDREF. 

The arms of this family, according to Burke, are 
argent, a mural or, embattled fess gules, charged with 
three palm branches of the field between six Cornish 
choughs ppr., quartering Edwardes, viz., gales, a chevron 
engrailed between three boar's heads erased argent 
(See p. 92.) 

CILHENDREF IN DUDLYSTON, YN Y WAUN. 

Iddon ab Rhys Sais, Lord of Dudlystan (see vol. i, p. 
311), lived at Cilhendref. He married Alice, daughter 
of Sir John Done of Utkinton in Cheshire, Knight, by 
whom he was father of Trahaiarn of Cilhendref, Lord of 
Dudlyston, who married Elen, daughter of Sir Geoffrey 
Cornwall, Knight, Baron of Burford, by whom he had 
issue four sons : — 1, Heilin of Pentref Heilin ; 2, Cadivor, 
of Cilhendref; 3, Hwfa, ancestor of the Vaughans of 
Burlton Hall ; and 4, Morgan of Pentref Morgan, ances- 
tor of David ab Einion of Pentref Morgan, ab Ednyfed 
Ddu ab Iorwerth ab Goronwy Ddu ab Morgan ab Iddon 
ab Rhys Sais. Cadivor of Cilhendref had three sons : — 1, 
Iorwerth, of whose line we have to treat ; 2, Heilin ab 
Cadivor. who was the ancestor of Thomas ab David ab 
Thomas ab Cynwrig ab Meilir ab Elidor ab Heilin ab 
Cadifor ; and 3, Madog ab Cadifor, the ancestor of Howel 
ab David ab Ithel ab Iorwerth ab GrufFydd Fychan ab 
Gruffydd ab Madog ab Cadifor. 

The ancient mansion of Cilhendref, which was situate 



CILHENDREF IN DUDY8T0N. 



89 



in a retired and beautiful valley, was pulled down about 
ninety years ago. In the centre of the house was a 
chamber perfectly dark, into which you descended by 
steps, and the passages to which were hidden by tapestry ; 
evidently appearing to have been intended for a place of 
concealment in cases of sudden danger. Some workmen 
employed in taking down part of the house, before the 
final demolition of the whole, discovered, beneath a flight 
of stone steps, an earthen jar, containing many pieces 
of leather money.

CORRESPONDENCE. 9 1 

EXTRACT 
From an Original Paper in Harl. MS. 1972. 

Correspondence between the Antiquaries John Salusbury of Er- 
bvstock and Randall Holmes, on the Arms of Morrall of 
Kilhendre and Plas Iolyn, explanatory of the origin of that 
Coat, and of its difference from those of other branches of 
the Family. 

(i.) 

" Mb. Holmes, — I am sorry to find you mistook the draw- 
ings of my ancle Edward's of Kilhendris paternall coat in 
the late funerall escutcheons, but I think you may easily 
amend the errata, it is but affixing a necke erazed to every 
head and then it will be right, the true forme thereof you 
shall see in the ould escutcheon that is sent you herewith, and 
the last quartering too in these escutcheons you are desired to 
alter thus, vizt., instead of the argent a chevron inter 3 boar's 
heads couped gules, you are wish'd to paint it gules, a chevron 
engrailed inter 3 boar's [heads] erazed argent, just as the 
first coat in your worke there ; for it seems Howel ap Eignion 
Goch of Whittington's sons gave different coats, for Edward 
ap Howel, his eldest son, gave the 3 boar's heads erazed 
argent as before, and Jo r the second son gave the heads cooped 
(sic) gules, this difference I confesse I was not sensible of when 
1 gave you the directions, but am now convinced of it, and 
therefore I beg your pardon that this trouble is given you 
more, but in the paternall coat it was your own oversight, and 
quite beside the directions, wherein it was my care above the 
common rules of blazon to specify the necks adjoin'd to the 
heads, &c, as before all w'ch youre pencill may quickly rectifie 
& salve both our credits, w'ch is the earnest desire of your 
affectionate freind and servant, (Signed) Jo n . Salusbury.

" Loving Mr. Holmes, — Your pains is now desired for the 
last heir male of the House of Kilhendrey, vizt., for Thomas 
Edwards, Doctor of Physick (the only sonne & heir of Thomas 
Edwards, Esq., for whom you made funerall escutcheons the 
last year) ; & my aunt Edwards the mother of the decedent 
desires that you would draw 9 escutcheons for the body to be 
ready by Thursday at noon & Mr. Atherly of Chester will then 
call to you for them, you must be sure to draw the paternall 
coat according to my last directions, to wit gules a chevron 
engrailed inter 3 boar's heads with necks erazed at the

shoulders argent, & for the 4 first quarterings let them be the 
8am e as were done for his father, but the fift (sic) (instead of 
the 3 boar's heads cooped gules) must be gules a chevron en- 
grailed inter 3 boar's heads erazed at the [shoulders ? ] both 
argent & impaled therewith must be his wife's coat & quarter- 
ings. She is the daughter of Watkin Kyffin of Glascoed, 
Esq., by Katharin daughter of John Edwards of Stansti, Esq. 
I refer you to the line of Eignion Evell for her coat and 
quarterings. I pray you let four escutcheons for the body be 
made with all the quarterings both of man and wife & the 
rest in the usuall method. So no more but hearty salutations 
to you from your assured freind, (Signed) John Salusbury. 

Kilhendry, July 7th, 1688." 

(3.) 

. . . . — And from Mrs. Edwards of Kilhendrey I am 
importun'd to desire you to correct that mistake in the 
paternall coat by affixing necks to the boar's heads, the quarter- 
ings let them go as they are. I forwd her your argument 
against it fro* the impropriety of the posture for that creature, 
to w'ch shee answered mee that the fancie of their ancestors & 
their election of that posture (though ag 8 * nature) must out- 
weigh all argum to the contrary; besides, she wanted not some 
probable reason for it fro* the tradition delivered, that there 
were four brothers of that line who when they had received 
considerable estates by gavel-kind were resolved to distinguish 
and difference themselves each fro other by altering and 
changing either the colour, figure or posture of this charge 
in their ancestor's coat, so that the ancestor of my uncle 
Edwards took the boar's heads with necks appendant, and to 
confirm the same, since I conferred with you, I have seen a 
desk at Kilhendrey of ould Mr. Hugh Edwards's, made in the 
year 1569, w'th the coat so drawn with necks in inlaid work 
upon the s d deske, & in a window in Dudiston Chappel (much 
oulder than the desk as I conceive) I saw the same coat painted 
with necks erazed, and she doth assure me that it is so in Sir 
Thomas Edwards of Shrewsbury's pedegree drawn by the 
King at Arms in London in Kg. James' time, & I have seen it 
so in an old pedegree at Kilhendrey. These reasons I hope will 
evince and persuade you to take that further trouble upon 
you to rectifie what is amiss, and thereby to render due 
satisfaction & content to my aunt Edwards and to your loving 
freind, (Signed) John Salusbury." 

The letter is endorsed : — " These ffor his much respected 
ffreind Mr. Eaudle Holmes" — with additional letters torn off.

NANTHEUDWY. 97 

CANTREF RHAIADR. 

This cantref contains the three comots of Nant- 
heudwy, Mochnant Is Rhaiadr, and Cynllaeth. 



NANTHEUDWY. 

The comot of Nantheudwy contains the parishes of 
Llangollen and Llansanffraid Glyn Ceiriog, and the 
township of Tref Geiriog, in which there is a tradition 
that there was once a walled town, and the township 
of Nant Hir, both of which are in the parish of Llan- 
gadwaladr. 

Parish of Llangollen. — This parish is divided into 
three parts, viz., 1, Traian y Glyn; 2, Traian Trevor; 
and 3, Traian Llangollen. 

Traian y Glyn. — Traian y Glyn contains the townships 
of Cil Cychwyn, Hafod Gynfor, Crogen Iddon, Crogen 
Wladys, Erw Alo, and Tal y Garth. This portion has 
recently been made a separate parish by Act of Parlia- 
ment. 

Traian Trevor. — Traian Trevor contains the townships 
of Trevor Uchaf, Trevor Isaf, Din Bran, and Y Glwysegl. 

Traian Llangollen. — Traian Llangollen contains the 
townships of Llangollen Fawr, Llangollen Fechan, Llan- 
gollen Abad, Bachau, Meivod, Rhysgog, Pengwern, and 
Cysylltau. 

The Rectories of Llangollen, Chirk, Wrexham, and 
Rhiwabon, with the Chapelries of Llansanffraid Glyn 
Ceiriog, Llantyssilio, and Bryn Eglwys, formerly be- 
longed to the Cistercian Abbey of Valle Crucis, or Glyp 
y Gwystl, but they, together with the Abbey and its 
possessions, were granted by Henry VIII, in 1538-9, to 
Sir William Pickering, Knt., who died in 1574. From 
a document given at page 72, we find that during part 
of this time John Edwards of Pl&s Newydd in 
Gwern Ospin had the Rectory of Chirk, and his son and 
heir, John Edwards, had a third part of all the tithes 
of the parishes of Chirk, Llangollen, and Llansanffraid 
Glyn Ceiriog.

Sir Robert ab Rhys, M.A., chaplain and cross-bearer 
to Cardinal Wolsey. He obtained the lands of Cwm 
Tir Myuach, formerly belonging to the Cell of Moch 
Rhaiadr or Boch Rhaiadr, which belonged to the Cis- 
tercian Monastery of Strata Marchella or Ystrad Mar- 
chell, and are now comprised in the estates of Plas 
yn Rhiwlas and Cwm Mein in Penllyn. Sir Robert, 
before he had a grant of these lands, held them on lease 
for 66s. 8d. He likewise held on lease various lands 
and tenements in Penllyn which had been granted to 
the Abbey of Dinas Basing, or Basingwerk, in Tegeingl 
by Lly welyn ab Iorwerth, Prince of North Wales, and 
confirmed by his son and successor, Prince David, in 
1240. We find, from the Valor Ecclesiasticus, 26 
Henry VIII, that Robert ab Rhys paid for these lands 
£1 165. 8d. per annum. He lived at Plas Iolyn, and 
married Margaret, daughter of Rhys Lloyd 1 of Gydros

Cerrig y Druidion." " In his time the faith was changed 
(at the Reformation), and he lost his office; and he 
married, and was afterward parson of Cerrig y Druidion." 
He married Janet, daughter of Elis ab Harri ab Cynwrig 
ab Ithel Fychan of Ysgeifiog, by whom he had a son and 
heir, Thomas Wynn of Plas Newydd in Llanrwst, High 
Sheriff for co. Denbigh in 1595); 5, Thomas Vychan of

Elis Pryse of Plas Iolyn, LL.D. He was generally 
known during his lifetime as the " Doctor Goch." He 
was educated at Cambridge, where he took his degrees, 
and waa eminent for his powers of disputation, being one 
of those chosen by his college, in 1532, to dispute against 
the representatives of the University of Oxford; when 
he got the best of it. He represented the county of 
Merioneth in the parliament of Queen Mary, and the 
first and second parliaments of Queen Elizabeth. He 
was sheriff no less than fifteen times for his own and the 
neighbouring counties, viz., for Merionethshire eight 
times, in the years 1552, 1556, 1564, 1568, 1574, 1579, 
1584, and on the 9th December 1598 ; for Caernarvon- 
shire once, in the year 1558 ; for Anglesey twice, in 1578 
and 1586 ; and for bis native county four times, in the 



PRYSE OF PLAS IOLYN. 105 

years 1550, 1557, 1559, and 1573. He was one of the 
Council of the Court of the Marches, and was the first 
named of the gentlemen directed by Queen Elizabeth 
to hold the Royal Eisteddfod at Caerwys in 1567, and 
obtained a grant of the Mauor of Yspythy Ieuan, for- 
merly belonging to the Knights Hospitallers of St. John. 
He was appointed Custos Rotulorum of Meirionydd in 
1576. Pennant (iii, 140) describes him as "a creature 
of Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and devoted to all his 
bad designs. He was the greatest of our knaves in 
the period iu which he lived, the most dreaded oppressor 
in his neighbourhood, and a true sycophant, for a com- 
mon address of his letters to his patron was, ' O Lord, in 
thee do I put my trust/ " There is every reason to believe 
that this description is truthful, as his name appears 
mixed up with all the tyrannical dealings of the Earl 
of Leicester with his Denbighshire tenants. In the 
neighbourhood, the "Doctor Goch" still lives in tradition 
as a great oppressor, and as one who had dealings with 
the Evil One. He married Erllyw, daughter of Sir Owain 
Pool, B.D., a priest, parson of LJandecwyn near Harlech ; 
by whom he had issue two sons : — 1, Thomas Pryse ; and 
2, Richard Pryse; and four daughters: — 1, Jane, who 
married, first, Lewys Owen of Dolgelli, and, secondly, 
John Conwy of Gwern Eigron ; 2, Margaret, ux. Piers 
Lloyd of Ddol Edeyrn, High Sheriff for co. Merioneth in 
1627; 3, Catherine, ux. David Vaughan, M.A., ab 
Morgan ab Maredydd ; and 4, Gaenor, ux. Gawen Good- 
man of Ruthin. 

Captain Thomas Pryse of Pl&s Iolyn, Lord of the 
Manor of Yspytty Ieuan, and High Sheriff for co. Den- 
bigh in 1599. He was- a celebrated poet, many of his 
poems being still preserved in MS. Some of them were 
published in the Cylchgrawn (Llandovery, 1834). He 
fitted out a privateer against the Spaniards, and after- 
wards served, as he tells us, in the land service at 
Tilbury in 1588. He also states that he and Captain 
William Myddleton and Captain Thomas Holt were the 
first who " drank" (smoked) tobacco in the streets of 



106 HISTORY OF POWYS FA DOG. 

London, which he and his companions had found in 
a ship captured by them off the coast of Africa. He 
and Captain William Myddleton are ranked by the 
author of Heraldry Displayed among those fifteen gen- 
tlemen " who fostered the literature of Wales during 
those years of its depression which followed the insur- 
rection of Owain Glyndyfrdwy". Of those fifteen, no 
less than five were of the family of Plas lolyn, viz., 
Dr. Elis Pryse, his son the captain, Robert Wynn of 
Foelas, High Sheriff for co. Denbigh in 1549 and 
1574, eldest son of Cadwaladr of Foelas, High Sheriff 
for co. Denbigh in 1548, eldest son of Maurice Gethin, 
third son of Rhys ab Maredydd ab Tudor of Plas lolyn ; 
Rhys Wynn 1 of Giler, second son of Cadwaladr ab 
Maurice Gethin of Foelas ; and Thomas Wynn of Plas 
Newydd in Llanrwst, High Sheriff for co. Denbigh in 
1595, son of Sir Richard Y Person Gwyn. Thomas 
Pryse married, first, Margaret, daughter of William 
Gruffydd, of the house of Penrhyn in Caernarvonshire, 
by whom he had issue two sons : — 1, Elis, ob. s. p.; and 
2, Thomas, of whom presently ; and one daughter, Mar- 
garet, who died s. p. He married, secondly, Jane, 
daughter of Robert Wynn of Berth DA, by whom he 
had issue : — 1, William Pryse of Rhyd Lechog, who 
married Margaret, daughter of ... . Lloyd, Esq. ; 2, 
Peter Pryse of Cynllwyd, who married Mary, daughter 
of Rowland Vaughan of Caer Gai in Penllyn, and Judith 
his wife, daughter and heiress of Edward Pryse, son and 
heir of Captain John Pryse of Coed Prysg in Penllyn, by 
whom he had a son and heir, Thomas Pryse, Barrister-at- 
Law. Thomas Pryse had also, by his wife Jane, two 
other sons, who died s. p., and three daughters. 2 

Thomas Pryse of Pl&s lolyn, Lord of the Manor of 

1 Rhys Wynn of Geler purchased, 20th May, 25th Elizabeth (1583), 
lands in Hiraethog and other places in co. Denbigh, which had been 
granted to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester, and John Morley, Esq., 
and by them sold to Sir John Huband, of Ipseley, co. Warwick, Knt, 
and John Onthank of Cat ten hall, co. Chester.

descended from Hedd Moelwynog, chief of one of the 
noble tribes of Gwynedd. 1 

Thomas Lloyd succeeded his father at Berth. He 
died in 1648, and was buried at Llanbedr, as appears 
by an inscription on his father's tombstone : " Here lieth 
the body of Thomas Lloyd, Gent. Buried the second 
day of February, Anno Dom. 1648." He left a son, 
John Lloyd, who died in his father's lifetime, 17th 
April 1645, having had a family of five sons and five 
daughters : — 1, Thomas, born and died 1642 ; 2, Edward, 
born 1631, of whom presently; 3, Trevor, born 1635, 
ob. 1641 ; 4, Simon, born 1637, ob. 1653 ; and 5, John, 
born 1640. The six daughters were : 1, Elizabeth, born 
1628, ob. 1656, married to John Conway, by whom she 
had a daughter, Lucy, born 1655 ; 2, Anna, born 1633 ; 
3, Katherine, born 1634, ob. 1641 ; 4, Maria, born 1639 ; 
5, Jane, born and died 1642 ; and 6, Jane, born 1644. 
Thomas Lloyd was succeeded by his grandson, 

Edward Lloyd of Berth, living 1660. He married a 

lady named Margaret (who was living, a widow, in 

1680), by whom he had issue four daughters : 1, Maria, 

born 1654, died 1664, and buried January 25th, at 

Llanufydd ; Elizabeth and Magdalene (twins), born and 

1 Thomas Edwards of Bryn Polin died on the 17th Dec. 1663 at 
LlandafF, and is buried in the Cathedral there. By his wife, Anne, 
he had a son, Richard Edwards, who became possessed of the estate 
of Old Court, in the county of Wicklow, in right of his wife, Elizabeth 
Kynaston, daughter and heiress of Colonel John Kynaston, who had 
served against the King in an expedition for the reduction of North 
Wales to the obedience of the Parliament, and captured Khuddlan 
Castle, of which he became Governor. On the 7th June 1647, ho 
landed in Ireland, from Chester, with his Welsh Regiment of Foot, 
"after four days plying at sea", accompanying the Commissioners 
from the Parliament, who had come to treat with the Marquis of 
Ormond, the Lord Lieutenant, for the surrender of Dublin. After 
his death, in 1649, a grant of land, of which Old Court formed a 
portion, was made to his widow by Oliver Cromwell (Burke's Landed 
Gentry, ed. 1863). In the churchyard of Llanbedr is a tomb with 
the following inscription : " Underneath lie the remains of John 
Brabazon, second son of John Edward Ed ward es of Old Court, county 
Wicklow, kingdom of Ireland, Esq., of a family originating from this 
Vale. He died 23rd September 1793, aged eleven years."

died 1658 ; Martha, born 1661 ; and three sons : 1, John, 
born 1655 ; 2, Trevor, born 1657; and 3, David, born 
1659. 

John Lloyd of Berth, the eldest son, married, in 1680, 
Elizabeth, daughter of ... and Alice his wife, daughter 
of ... Mostyn of Hendref Figillt, co. Flint, as appears 
from a deed in which a capital messuage, called " Y 
Berth", is settled upon her. She died in 1689. He mar- 
ried, secondly, Elizabeth . . . who died in 1 700. John 
Lloyd had issue two sons: — 1, Edward, his successor, 
baptized January 1681 ; and 2, Robert, born 1686 ; and 
six daughters, — Alice, born 1685, died 1694 ; Elizabeth, 
born and died 1700; Lettice, born 1687, died in 
infancy; Jane, her twin sister, born 1687 ; Catherine, 
1684 ; and Sidney, born 1689. 

Edward Lloyd of Berth, the eldest son, married Anne, 
eldest daughter of Maurice Lewys of Trysglwyn or 
Treslwyn in Anglesey. She died in 1746, and was 
buried in the old church of Llanbedr, with this inscrip- 
tion on her tombstone : " Here lyes interred Anne Lloyd 
of Berth, widow and relict of Edward Lloyd, Esq., who 
dyed on the 17th January 1746, aged 58. She was 
the oldest daughter of Maurice Lewys of Trysglwyn 1 in 
Anglesey." Below the inscription is a coat of arms, ap- 
parently ermine, a lion rampant. Crest, a unicorn's head 
in a coronet surmounting a helmet. Their family con- 
sisted of two daughters : Susannah (if not of a previous 
generation, her baptism not being registered) died 7th 
Nov. 1706; and Elizabeth, born 1709, living in 1741 ; 
and five sons. Edward, the eldest son, died a few months 
after his father, and was buried in the same grave with 
him, in the aisle. Their tombstone is inscribed: "Here 
lyes interred the bodyes of Edward Lloyd the father, and 
Edward Lloyd the sone, both of Berth, who died, the 
one on the 2nd day of January 1721, aged 44; and 
the other on the 7th day of October 1722, aged 14." 
David, the third son, born 1711, is described in a deed

county of Montgomery, clerk, and one of the trustees 
named in his brother Hugh Lloyd's will. Trevor, born 
and died in 1713. Maurice, born 1714 ; and Robert, 
born 1716. Edward Lloyd was succeeded by his eldest 
surviving son, 

Hugh Lloyd of Berth and of Furnival's Inn, who mar- 
ried Ursula, second daughter of Howel Lloyd of Wigfair, 1 
co. Flint, Esq., and Phoebe his wife, second daughter of 
Hedd Lloyd of Hafod Unos, Esq., 2 by whom he had 
issue six sons : — 1, John, born 1743, died 1744, buried in 
Chester Cathedral ; 2, Edward, born and died 1744 ; 3, 
John, of whom presently ; 4, Thomas, born 1746, living 
1766, went to sea; 5, Howel, born 1747, went to sea in 
1761, living 1768 ; and 6, Hedd, born 1749, and settled

"Here also lyes the body of Hugh Lloyd, gent., who 
became the eldest son of the above Edward and Anne 
Lloyd, and dyed in September 1756, leaving John Lloyd 
his eldest son, and other children." On the tombstone of 
Anne Lloyd is also inscribed, "Here lie the remains of 
Ursula Lloyd of Berth. She died 28th September 1795, 
aged 75/' That she was a handsome old lady appears 
from a picture of her at Rhagatt,, bearing a strong like- 
ness to some of her descendants. Hugh Lloyd was suc- 
ceeded by his eldest surviving son, 

John Lloyd of Berth, of Gray's Inn and the Middle 
Temple, a King's Council, and Chief Justice of the 
Caermarthenshire circuit, of whom a short account is 
given in Williams' Eminent Welshmen. He married

LLOYD OF BERTH AND RHAGAT. 131 

Margaret, youngest daughter of Josiah Morrall of Plas 
Iolyn, co. Salop, Esq., by Margaret his wife, daughter 
of John Lloyd of Pontriffith, Esq. In her marriage 
settlement she is described as Margaret Morrall of Pen- 
gwern, spinster, niece of Edward Lloyd of Pengwern, 
who would seem to have been also her guardian, as her 
fortune of £3,500 was paid by him. 

Judge Lloyd was educated at Ruthin School, and 
was distinguished as well by the strength of his memory 
as by the soundness of his judgment. His extensive 
practice enabled him to add considerably to the family 
property by the purchase of the Ial, 1 Rhagatt, and Llan- 
ynys estates. He was also an excellent sportsman, and 
a tree is still sliown in which a hare was once seen to 
take refuge from the pursuit of his harriers. When 
another was observed to be sinking, after a long chase, 
he is said to have exclaimed, " Nothing can save her now 
but a Cardiganshire jury I" 2 The issue of his marriage 
were two sons : — 1, Edward of whom presently ; and 2, 
John, a captain in the royal navy, who was lost at sea, 
1814; and two daughters: — 1, Margaret, died at 
Cheltenham, unmarried, 1841, and is buried there at 
the parish church ; 2, Frances, married to Richard Wat- 
kin Price of Rhiwlas, co. Merioneth, Esq. Judge Lloyd 
died on the 9th September 1806, and was succeeded by 
his elder son, 

Edward Lloyd of Berth, county of Denbigh, and of 
Rhagatt, county of Merioneth, born 1778 ; was educated 

1 Among the farms purchased in Ial was Hafod yr Abad. See 
Arch. Camb., Jan. 1875, p. 39. 

2 In November 1808 the following appeared in The Sporting Maga- 
zine: "The Welsh are remarkable for never hanging felons. The 
following bon mot is recorded of a modern counsel. The Judge, upon 
the road, observing some sheep in an insulated spot where the tide 
or flood menaced them with a speedy death, said, * Nothing can save 
those sheep.' ' My Lord,' replied a barrister, 'do you not think a 
Welsh jury can?'" A juryman being asked, in a case of palpable 
evidence, why he and his brethren gave a verdict of acquittal, replied, 
" What ! would you have hur hang hur own countryman ?" (By- 
Gone*, June 14, 1876.)

CASTELL DINAS BRAN. 

This ancient fortress is situate in the township of 
Dinbryn, on the summit of a conical hill which rises to 
the height of about 1,000 feet above the river Dee. 
Leland thus describes its situation : "Din as Bran Castel 
on a rokky hille standith almoste as neere as Vallis Cruris 
to Dee Ripe, and going up on De Water is somewhat 
lower than the Abbay ; Llan Gotlan village is on the 
south side (of Dee river) and Din as Brane Castelle 
standith upon an high hille, on the North Ripe of Dee, a 
3 quarters of a mile of." 2 An earlier structure is said to 
have been destroyed by fire in the tenth century. 3 

There is a tradition that the present building sustained

Owain Glyndyfrdwy, when held by Thomas, Earl of 
Arundel, a strenuous supporter of the House of Lancaster, 
who succeeded his father in 1399, and died in 1421. 

Leland states that "Owen Glindower had a place in 
Yale, upon the north side De, caulled Ragarth, v. mile 
above Dinas Brane", and he also says that there were 
vestiges of a Castle of Owain Glyndyfrdwy's midway 
between Valle Crucis and Rhuddin, called "Keven De, i.e., 
the bakke of the Blake Hille, where now sheperdes kepe 
shepe." 1 

In the year 1390, this castle was held by a member of 
the House of Tudor Trevor, under Richard Fitz Alan, 
Earl of Warren, Arundel, and Surrey, Lord of Dinas 
Bran, as we learn from the bard Howel abEinion Lygliw, 
who, in that year, addressed a long poem to the cele- 
brated beauty Myfanwy Fechan, the daughter of the 
occupier of the castle. In his poem he complains, 

" Though hard the steep ascent to gain, 
Thy smiles were harder to obtain.'* 

At the death of John Mowbray, fourth Duke of Nor- 
folk, in 1476, the castles of Dinas Bran, Holt, and Chirk, 
reverted to the Crown. 

In 1482, the Castle Dinas Bran, and the Lordship of 
Maelor Gymraeg, or Bromfield, were granted to Sir 
William Stanley, knight, by King Richard III. 

In 1490, the Castles of Dinas Bran, Holt, and Chirk, 
with the Lordships of Bromfield, Chirk, and Ial, were 
•anted to the said Sir William Stanley, knight, by King 
!enry VII, in the fifth year of his reign. See vol. i, 
p. 394. 

In the time of Henry VIII the castle was in ruins. 
Leland, who wrote in his reign, says, — "The Castelle of 
Dinas Brane was never bygge thinge, but sette al for 
strenght, as in a place half inaccessible for enemyes. It 
is now al in ruine, and there bredith every yere an egle. 
And the egle doth sorely assaut hym that distroith the

nest, goyng down in one basket, and having a nother 
over his hedde to defend the sore stripe of the egle." 1 

The principal approach to the castle was from the 
south-east, through Llanddin farm, just below which a 
bridge once crossed the Dee on the road of communication 
between Castell Dinas Bran and Castell Crogen (Chirk 
Castle). 



A POEM. 

To Myfanwy Pechan of Castell Dinas Bran; composed by 
Howel-ap-Einion Lygliw, a Bard who flourished about 
a.d. 1390, temp. Henry IV. 

I am without spirit, thou that hast enchanted me, as 
Creirwy enchanted Garwy. In whatever part of the world I 
am, I lament my absence from the marble castle of Myfanwy. 
Love is the heaviest burden, thou that shinest like the 
heavens ; and a greater punishment cannot be inflicted than 
thy displeasure, beautiful Myfanwy. I, who am plunged 
deeper and deeper in love, can expect no other case, O gentle 
fair Myfanwy with jet eyebrows, than to lose my life upon thy 
account. I sung in golden verse thy praises, Myfanwy ; 
this is the happiness of thy lover, but the happiness is a mis- 
fortune. The well-fed steed carried me pensive like Trystan, 
and great was his speed to reach the golden summit of Bran. 
Daily I turn my eyes, and see thee, O thou that shinest like 
the waves of Caswennan. Charming sight to gaze on thee in 
the spacious royal palace of Bran. I have rode hard, mounted 
on a fine high-bred steed, upon thy account, thou with the 
countenance cherry-flower bloom. The speed was with eager- 
ness, and the strong long-ham'd steed of Alban reached the 
summit of the highland of Bran. I have composed with great 
study and pains, thy praise, thou that shinest like the new- 
fallen snow on the brow of Aran. thou beautiful flower 
descended from Trefor, hear my sorrowful complaint. I am 
wounded, and the great love I bear thee will not suffer me to 
sleep unless thou givest me a kind answer. I, thy pensive 
Bard, am in as woeful plight as Ehun by thy palace, beautiful 
maid. I recite, without either flattery or guile, thy praise, 



1 Itinerary, vol. v, pp. 3«*>, 53. 



142 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

thou that shinest like the meridian sun, with thy stately steps. 
Shouldst thou, who art the luminary of many countries, demand 
my two eyes, I would part them on thy account, such is 
the pain I suffer. They pain me while I look on the glossy 
walls of thy fine habitation, and see thee beautiful as the morn- 
ing sun. I have meditated thy praise, and made all countries 
resound with it, and every finger was pleased in chanting it. 
So affecting are the subjects of my mournful tale, Myfanwy, 
that lookest like flakes of driven snow. My loving heart sinks 
with grief without thy support, thou that hast the whiteness 
of the curling waves. Heaven has decreed that I should suffer 
tormenting pain, and wisdom and reason were given in vain 
to guard against love. When I saw thy fine shape in scarlet 
robes, thou daughter of a generous chief, I was so affected that 
life and death were equal to me. I sunk away, and scarce had 
time to make my confession. Alas ! my labour in celebrating 
thy praises, thou that shinest like the fine spider's webs on 
the grass in a summer's day, is vain. It would be a hard task 
for any man to guess how great my pain is. It is so afflicting, 
thou bright luminary of maids, that my colour is gone. I know 
that this pain will avail me nothing towards obtaining thy love, 
thou whose countenance is as bright as the flowers of the 
hawthorn. For heaven's sake, pity my distressed condition, 
and soften the penance of thy Bard I am a Bard, who, 
though wounded by thee, sings thy praises in well-founded 
verse, thou gentle maid of slender shape, who hinderest me to 
sleep by thy charms. I bring thy praises, bright maid, to thy 
palace at Dinbran ;* many are the songs that I rehearse to 
celebrate thy beautiful form.

illegitimate son, Thomas ab Rhys, who married Margaret, 

daughter of Howel ab , by whom he was the

Richard ab Howel was a partisan of Henry VII, who, 
when Earl of Richmond, was concealed at Mostyn Hall, 
and after he became King, sent the sword and belt he 
had worn at the battle of Bosworth to Richard ab Howel, 
as an acknowledgment of the kind services he had 
rendered him. From the Ilarl. MS. 4181, and the 
Cedwyn MS., we learn the names of the mansions and 
possessions which descended to Richard ab Howel, viz. : — 
I. The First Court called Pengwern in Chirkland, 
being part of the possessions of the aforesaid Adda ab 
Iorwerth DdA, and Elizabeth, or Isabel, his wife, who was

Ffanigl. Sir Gruffydd bore gules, a chevron or, and 
chief ermine. He is said to have been the first to con- 
vey to Edward I the tidings of his Queen's accouchement 
in the Castle of Caernarvon, for which he received the 
honour of knighthood. Subsequently, however, in 1322, 
he revolted against the English Government, and, after 
some struggles, was ,taken prisoner, and confined for a 
time in Rhuddlan Castle.

Black Friars at Rhuddlan Priory, and to the 'Friars 
Preachers at Bangor, and to his son Thomas ab Richard, 
and his younger son Pyers ab Richard, who was settled 
at Talacre. He married Catherine, daughter of Thomas

ing an Eisteddfod at Caerwys, in 1568, it is stated "that

gift and bestowing of the 'Sylver Harp* appertaining to 
the chief of that Faculty", and that "the said William 
Mostyn hath promised to see furniture and things neces- 
sary for that assembly, at the place aforesaid/' The 
(Silver Harp seems to have been a badge of honour, to 
be worn at the Eisteddfod, and not to have become the 
property of the successful competitor, as it is still pre- 
served at Mostyn Hall ; it is about six inches long, and 
has nine silver strings.

ELEGY ON THE LADY GWERFYL, DAUGHTER OF 
MADOG OF MECHAIN, BY GUTTOTt GLYN. 1 

Translated by Howel W. Lloyd, Esq. 



« 



A wretched month to Powys has been the month of March, 

A month of abstinence, — a dead month, so to speak, for 
Gwerfyl. 

In March our fair one fails us ; it is a month of longing for 
a star. 

The hours of March to me are martyrdom : my disease is 
that she is dead. 

Martha was one who made provision. By March ray pro- 
vision is taken away. 

March has carried off in Tanat-land a greater support than 
is father or mother. 

In Maelawr is the greatest mourning for the moon that is 
fall'n to the ground. 

On Thursday she went to the house of the bright Mary : 2 

A day that darkened the sky from end to end ; 

A day of lamentation, when ceased the song ; 

A day of judgment to all good women. 



1 Gutto'r Glyn was a native of Llangollen, and domestic bard to 
David ab Iorwerth, Abbot of Valle Cruris, who died in 1503. He 
was buried at Valle Cruris. 2 That is, to Heaven. 



* 



192 HISTORY OF POWYS PADOG. 

When Gwerfyl was laid under the stone, the life of the mul- 
titude 

Lost its brightness, the housewives of good husbands were 
no more. 

The sun, moon, and stars lost their heat ; 

The town has received a chill as cold as the coldness of the 
stone ; 

Thousands are weeping like Alice; the "warmth has fled 
away 

From many a cheek. Woe is the host for the lady of the 
mansion ; 

For the fair Gwerfyl the Honey Island is overcast ; 

Since she is gone, the summer has become winter ; 

Her once flowery carpet is affliction and woe. 

It is useless now to bring green leaves or garlands to the 
head of the bridge. 

Woe is me, now Madog's daughter is no more ! 

The graves on the common are gone for ever. 

God ! Now that she is buried and hid from our sight, 

farewell to festivals ! 

Lengthened are the wailings because she is lost to view. 

As for her poems they will ne'er be hidden from our sight. 

Although God and Mary have cut off the charm of my exis- 
tence, 

He will not break His covenant with her husband, 

Nor her minstrels, nor her renown, nor her three sons. 

If the desire of the dawn is laid to sleep, with her loveliness, 
in Michael's chair, 

Still St. Michael with his golden scales shall balance 

The good and evil done by every one. 1 

When her bountifulness is in the scale, all will raise a trium- 
phant shout. 

No saint; in the hours of Sunday ever bestowed (alms) with 
the lavishness of Gwerfyl. 

Our moon is in the bosom of Jesus for her bounty, with Mary 
and her company. 

The grave where her abode is now is filled to the brim with 
bountifulness. 

If the bountiful ever are requited, may her bounty be re- 
quited to her ! " 

1 This is part of the special office of St. Michael, according to the 
traditional popular belief of the Middle Ages. 



A POEM BY GUTTO'R GLYN. 193 



A POEM BY GUTTO'R GLYN IN PRAISE OF 
DAFYDD LLWYD OF GLAN TANAD. 

Translated by Howel W. Lloyd, Esq. 

The bard begins by declaring that he will lose no oppor- 
tunity of frequenting the house of David "the father of 
Glan Tanad", who, together with his mother Gwerfyl, 
has won his heart. 

The gifts of Gruflydd (his father) were munificent, and 

Gwerfyl 
Has made herself a name like that of Non; the mother of S. 

David. 
He has had losses, but David will compensate him for them. 
He is the Goshawk of Powys Fadog, the Gwalchmai of 

Maelawr. 
A Briton of illustrious ancestry, whose deeds are chronicled 

by his neighbours. 
Though he knew but his mother-tongue, the defect 
Need not hinder his advancement, as the man of one speech 
Stirs not the envy of others, and is often gifted with a double 

amount of understanding. 
The English lords will respect his bravery despite his igno- 
rance of their language. 
Like Sir Peregrine, he will be feared throughout the Marches, 
With his huge lance and steed. 
If a host from Brittany, headed by a tawny-lion, 1 cross the 

water, 
It will crumble to pieces at the rebuke of David, whose thigh 

is like Llyr's, 
His fame like that of the ancient warriors, his neck as power- 
ful as Geraint's, 
His whole frame gigantic and muscular as a lion's or grisly 

wolPs. 
Wrongdoers he will put down ; but his wine will flow for 

the weak. 
His weight alone is as good as an income to us, or a heap of 

money distributed. 
If an apple-tree in full blossom will maintain a man, 
He is one that will maintain a thousand ; nay, to me, he is 

a whole orchard. 



1 Henry, Earl of Richmond, afterwards Henry VII.

-94 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG, 

As gore compared with sweet apples are some countries to 
minstrels. 

Gwerfyl's apple is unfailing in its sweetness, unlike the sour- 
ness of others. 

Like a griffin is Gruffydd' s apple. It is gathered from an 
excellent stock.

204 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 



THE CHURCH OF LLANFIHANGEL YM MLODWEL. 

This church is dedicated to St. Michael, one of the 
archangels. St. John the Divine gives us the following 
account of this personage in the twelfth chapter of 
Revelations: 

» 

"And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a 
woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and 
upon her head a crown of twelve stars : and she being with 
child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. 

" And there appeared another wonder in heaven ; and be- 
hold a great red dragon having seven heads and ten horns, and 
seven crowns upon his heads. And his tail drew the third part 
of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth ; and the 
dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, 
for to devour her child as soon as it was born. And she brought 
forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of 
iron : and her child was caught up unto God, and to his 
throne 

" And there was war in heaven : Michael and his angels 
fought against the dragon ; and the dragon fought and his 
angels, and prevailed not ; neither was their place fouud any 
more in heaven ; and the great dragon was cast out, that old 
serpent called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole 
world; he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were 
cast out with him. 

"And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come 
salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the 
power of his Christ ; for the accuser of our brethren is cast 
down, which accused them before God day and night." 

It appears, therefore, from this account, that St. John 
the Divine witnessed the great battle fought between 
St. Michael and the dragon, for he expressly states that 
when the dragon was vanquished, he beard a loud voice 
saying in heaven, "Now is come salvation", etc. The 
date when this account was written is stated in the 
margin of the English version of the New Testament to 
be a.d. 96. 

We have an account of this battle given in the Chaldcean 
Account of Genesis, by the late George Smith, pp. 91, 92. 



THE CHURCH OP LLANFIHANGEL. 205 

" The dragon, which, in the Chaldean account of the Crea- 
tion, leads man to sin, is the creature of Tiamat, the living 
principle of the sea and of chaos, and he is an embodiment of 
the spirit of chaos or disorder which was opposed to the deities 
at the creation of the world." Tiamat declared war against 
the gods, and attacked the just Prince of the gods, Merodach. 
The gods have fashioned for them a sword and a bow to fight 
the dragon Tiamat, and Anu (the supreme God of Heaven) 
proclaims great honour to any of the gods who will engage in 
battle with the dragon. Bel (the Lord) Merodach volunteers, 
and goes forth armed with these weapons to fight the dragon. 
Tiamat is encouraged by one of the gods who has become her 
husband, and meets Merodach in battle. The description of 
the fight, given in the Tablets, and the subsequent triumph of 
the god, who killed Tiamat and dispersed her army are very 
fine. This war between the powers of good and evil, chaos and 
order, finds its parallel in the war between Michael and the 
dragon in Rev. xii, 7 to 9, where the dragon is called " the 
great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, 
which deceiveth the whole world." 

This description is strikingly like the impression 
gathered from the fragments of the cuneiform story, — 
the dragon Tiamat, who fought against the gods, and led 
man to sin, and whose fate it was to be conquered in a 
celestial war, closely corresponds in all essential points to 
the dragon conquered by Michael. 

In the New Testament, however, which is believed by 
all Christians to be the inspired Word of God, we are 
told by St. John the Divine, who describes the battle, 
that when the dragon was defeated, he himself heard a 
loud voice saying in heaven, "Now is come salvation, 
and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the 
power of His Christ." This, however, is the divinely 
inspired assertion of the beloved disciple of Christ, the 
Evangelist St. John. 

In the elegy to the Lady Gwerfyl, p. 191, we find the 
following statement : — 

"If the desire of the dawn is laid to sleep, with her loveliness 
in Michael's choir, 
Still St. Michael with his golden scales shall balance 
The good and evil done by every one." 



/ 



206 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

" This is part of the special office of St. Michael, according 
to the traditional popular belief of the middle ages. It is so re- 
presented in a homily of the fifteenth century printed by the 
Early English Text Society ; and also in a curious fresco recently 
brought to light in the church of Southleigh in Oxfordshire, 
where St. Michael is represented as holding a pair of scales, 
in one of which is a kneeling figure of a soul lately deceased ; 
and in the other, of a demon; while an imp, perched on the 
extremity of the balance, endeavours to overweigh the opposite 
scale. On the right of the archangel stands the Blessed Vir- 
gin ; ancj on the left side, in the foreground of the picture, is 
the flaming abyss filled with expectant demons. in 

In the east window of the Church of Llangystenyn, in 
Rhos, are the remains of some ancient stained glass. In 
one of the compartments of this window, St. Michael is 
represented holding a pair of scales, in one of which is the 
kneeling figure of a departed soul, and in the other its 
sins, with a demon underneath, endeavouring to pull 
it down and make it preponderate. 

In a small pamphlet called The Serpent Myths of 
Ancient Eygpt, 2 is a vignette, taken from a payprus, of 
the judgment of a departed soul by Osiris. The deceased 
is introduced into the- Hall of Judgment by Isis and 
Horus-Ra. In the centre of the picture stands the 
balance, in one scale of which is the heart of the 
deceased, and in the other a weight, in the form of the 
Goddess of Truth. On the right stand Isis, the Queen of 
Heaven, and Horus-Ra, who holds the deceased's left 
hand. Behind the balance is the entrance to Hades, 
guarded by a Typho-cerberic monster, who sits on the 
battlements of the portal. On the left side Anubis, the 
guardian of the dead, adjusts the beam ; while Thoth 
records the result upon his tablet. This ends the first 
scene. In the second part of the picture, Horus-Ra, 
crowned with the Psehent, introduces the deceased to the 
presence of Osiris, and pleads in his behalf for him, now 
invested with the robe of Justification. Before Osiris are

the four genii of the body upon an altar of lotus flowers, 
being offered as intercessors for the Osirian — their office 
being specially to plead for the sins committed by that 
part of the body over which they individually presided. 
Behind Osiris stand the goddess Isis and Nepthys, 
waiting to conduct the justified Osirian into the regions 
of Amenti. 

The following description of the trial of the deceased 
before the judgment-seat of Osiris is given in the same 
pamphlet. 

" On a raised throne before the Osirian (the deceased), sits 
the awful deity Osiris, upon whose head are the double crowns 
of the united kingdoms of Upper and Lower ^Egypt, circled 
with the solar asp or uraeus. In his hands are the cross of life, 
the cucufa staff of dominion, the curved lituus denoting sacer- 
dotal authority, and the scourge of Khem. Behind his throne 
are the avenging Caberii, children of Typhon, or Set, and his 
consort the hippopotamus-headed goddess (Thoeris) of hell; 
lastly, underneath his feet, fettered and tortured, lie the souls 
of the condemned. Lest the Osirian should quail and be un- 
able to stand before the solemn assembly, the goddesses Isis 
and Nepthys, deities of the upper and lower firmament respec- 
tively, support his trembling footsteps, while Amset, Tautmutf, 
Kabhsenuf, and Hapi, the guardian deities of the dead, inter- 
cede for his protection. On an altar before them flowers and 
incense burn in fragrant propitiation, and between it and the 
judge, in a massive and yet delicate balance, the heart of the 
deceased is weighed against the feather of Thmei, the goddess 
of Truth. Thoth, the introducer of spirits, writes down the 
preponderance of the weight for good or evil, while an ape (the 
emblem of justice, because all his extremities are even), sitting 
on the summit of the cross-beam, prevents either fraud or 
favour. 

" Now is the Osirian to give an account of his whole former 
life, and while each of the forty-two assessors accuses him of 
some flagrant fault, he has in return to reveal to the questioner 
his own secret name, and to profess his innocence of the faults 
alleged. This is called the apology, or the negative confession, 
and it is one of the most sublime and singular ethical formu- 
laries in the whole of ancient mythology. The first part of the 
address is negative ; but as heaven to the Egyptian was not 
accessible by mere sinlessness, but was the reward only of 
active virtue, the Osirian, from the evils he has not done, pro- 



i 



208 HISTORY OF POWYS FA DOG. 

ceeds to the enumeration of the good which he has performed, 
and entreats, not the clemency, but the equity of the judge. 
Extending then his arms towards the deity, thus he addresses 
the adjudicator Osiris and his coadjutor divinities : — € O ye 
Lords of Truth, thou Great God, Lord of Truth, I have 
come to thee, my Lord, I have brought myself to see thy 
splendid glories : I have known .thee, I have known thy name, 
I have known the names of the forty- two of the gods who are 
with thee in the Hall of the Two Truths, who live by catching 
the wicked and feeding off their blood, in the day of reckoning 
for words before the Good Being, the Justified. 

" s Rub ye away my faults, for I have not privily done evil 
against mankind, neither have I afflicted persons or men ; I 
have not told falsehoods before the tribunal of Truth, I 
have had no acquaintance with evil, I have not done any wicked 
thing, I have not made the labouring man perform more than 
his daily task, I haVe not been idle, I have not failed, I have 
not been weak (in the sense of sinful), I have not done what is 
hateful to the gods, I have not calumniated the slave to his 
master, I have not sacrificed (filled the office wrongfully of a 
pinest), I have not murdered, I have not given orders to smite 
a person privily, I have not done fraud to any man, neither 
have I altered the measures of the country ; I have not injured 
the images of the gods, I have not withheld milk from the 
mouths of sucklings, neither have I netted the sacred fish ; x I 
have not stopped running water, I have not robbed the gods of 
their offered haunches, I have not caused to weep, I have not 
multiplied words in speaking, I have not blasphemed a god, I 
have not made a conspiracy, I have not corrupted women or 
men, neither have I polluted myself; I have not stolen from 
the dead, I have not played the hypocrite, I have not caused 
any to weep, I have not despised any god in my heart ; I am 
pure, I am pure, — let no harm happen to me from the avenging 
genii ; save, save me from them. 

"0 Lords of Truth, I have made to the gods the offerings 
due unto them, I have given food to the hungry, I have given 
drink to the thirsty, I have given clothes to the naked, and a 
a boat to the shipwrecked; I have been attentive to the words 
of Truth, I am pure from all sins, I am free from the curse of 
the wicked, I have done what the gods writ upon earth, I have 
no sins, and no perversion — place me before thyself, Lord of

Eternity, and let me pass through the roads of darkness and 
dwell with thee for ever/ 

" To so magnificent an appeal, and to a soul so consciously 
perfect, but one answer can the deity return. At a signal from 
Osiris, the deceased is invested in a long white linen robe, 1 
fringed with a symbolical fringe along one side of it (the origin 
possibly of the Jewish Arbang Kanphoth); and then, while 
Thoth writes the decree of acquittal upon the rolls of Heaven, 
the deity and assessors, jointly addressing the Osirian, exclaim, 
€ Go forth, thou who hast been introduced. Thy food is from 
the eye of God, thy drink is from the eye of God, thy meats 
are from the eye of God ; go thou forth, Osirian, justified for 
ever/" 



"If on the night of the eighth day of the Kalends of 
January, i.e., the 25th of December, we refer to the celestial 
sphere, we shall see rising in the east the celestial Virgin, 
who by her ascension presides over the opening of the year. 
She has beneath her feet in the lower horizon the Dragon of 
the Hesperides, who rises after her with Libra, and who seems 
to pursue her. In the same way the dragon of the Apocalypse 
pursues the winged woman who was about to be delivered of 
the god who was to reign over the universe, and like the serpent 
Python, whose name he bears, he pursues Latona, the mother 
of the sun, or Apollo. 

" This Virgin bore the name of Isis, the mother of Horus, or 
the god of light, and of Ceres, mother of the young god of the 
mysteries, and who was called the Holy Virgin. Her first 
decan was that of the sun, or of the god whose birth was cele- 
brated on December 25th, and whose natal hour was consulted 
by the priests. The representation of the sun was consequently 
placed over this decan, which placed the sun upon her head. 
The first decan of Libra was that of the moon. Thus she had, 
like the woman of the Apocalypse, the sun on her head, and 
the moon under her feet. This virgin is represented carrying 
a new-born child, as in the Persian spheres of Aben-Ezra and 
of Abulmazar. 

" At her feet, towards the eastern side, is the star Janus, 2 the 
head of the twelve months or the signs, represented by twelve 
altars placed at his feet 

1 A specimen of this garment in the Hay collection measured 16 ft. 
by 9 ft., and was furnished with a broad twisted fringe along the outer 
edge. 

2 The original of Peter, head of the twelve Apostles. 

vol. iv. 14 



210 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

" On the horizontal line towards the east is Bootes, 1 the 
guardian or foster-father of Horus, son of the Virgin Tsis, 
mother of the god of day, preceded by the ship or bark of 
Janus, or the vessel of Isis and Osiris, of which the bark of 
Peter and of Janus has been made, for both have the ship and 
the keys." 2 (See Lempridre's Classical Dictionary : Janus and 
Cybele.) In Sanscrit this ship is called Argha. 

And again : — 

" If the reader fixes his eyes on the heaven of the fixed stars, 
and especially on the Zodiac, and on that portion of the sky 
which fixed, at midnight, the beginning of the year at the 
winter solstice, and which constellations, at springtime, rose 
first, at sunset, on the horizon at its eastern boundary, he will 
perceive that the constellations that rise first are the ship called 
Area (the bark of Janus), and the celestial Virgin, attended by 
the Serpent, who rises after her, and appears to pursue her in 
the heavens, while on the western side the river of Orion (the 
celestial Eridanus), seems to bury itself in the earth by disap- 
pearing as it sets. Such is the picture which the astronomical 
heavens present to us at the moment when the equinoctial year 
terminates, and when the sun of spring, which supports Aries 
(the celebrated Lamb), the leader of the twelve signs of the 
Zodiac, is about to shine forth. What are the representations 
which the Apocalypse sets before us ? The Ark shining in 
heaven (Rev. xi, 19), a woman with wings, like the Virgin of 
our constellations (Rev. xii, 1, 14), who is pursued by a serpent 
(Rev. xii, 3), and a river which is swallowed up by the earth 
(Rev. xii, 15, 16). Thus the Apocalyptic and the astrological 
sky are absolutely identical. 

" In the Apocalypse a woman is seen (refer to p. 204) clothed 
with the sun, having the moon under her feet, and a crown of 
twelve stars upon her head ; she travails in birth, and pains to 
be delivered ; and after her comes a great red dragon, of the 
colour of Typhon, who appears in heaven ! and seeks to devour 
the young child who is to rule all nations : the meaning of 
which is, we see Isis with the child Horus or the sun, whom 
Typhon, the Prince of Darkness, wishes to devour, but who

God of Light resumes his empire over the Prince of Darkness,

making the duration of the day triumph over that of the night. 
The crown of twelve stars on the woman's head signifies the 
twelve months, or signs of the Zodiac, and is the same as the 
crown of twelve rays with which Martianus Capella adorns the 
head of the sun, in his magnificent hymn to that god — 

" * Radiisque sacratum 
Bis senis perhibent caput aurea lumina fcrre, 
Quod totidera menses, totidem quod conficis horas ;' 

And as the crown of twelve precious stones with which he 
adorns the head of Juno, the colours of which are analogous to 
the colours of the earth during the twelve months. 

" The river which the earth swallows up is also one of the 
constellations which are in aspect with the Virgin. Astrologers 
joined it to this sign, because its setting coincided with the rising 
of Virgo. Eratosthenes, Hipparchus, and the calendars 
printed in the third volume of Father Petau's Uranologia, 
place under the ascension of Virgo the setting or disappear- 
ance of the stars of the river of Orion, or the celestial Eridanus, 
and it is only necessary to place a celestial globe so that Virgo 
is the first ascending sign in the East to verify this statement 

" The great red dragon is said (Rev. xii, 9) to be the same 
serpent as the Devil, or Satan, who deceives the whole world, 
that is, he is the principle of evil and darkness, the Persian 
Ahriman. The dragon is cast out into the earth, and after his 
defeat retires to the sand of the sea (Rev. xiii, 1). No one can 
fail to recognise in this dragon Typhou, the enemy of Isis and 
Osiris, whom the Egyptians painted like a serpent with feet 
and hands, and who, they said, according to Plutarch, was of 
a red colour (Plut. de Iside). Hence their hatred for red 
animals. In Egyptian mythology, a battle is described between 
Horus and his companions, and a serpent who pursues a 
woman (Plut, ibid.) This battle lasted several days, and at 
length Typhon was chained up. Plutarch says that all these 
myths, in which the contests between Apollo and Python, and 
Osiris and Typhon are described, are of the same description, 
as well as other mystic fictions, which are not allowed to be 
revealed to profane persons. The real explanation of the 
mystery is the struggle between the genii of light and those of 
darkness, and that the basis of it is the theological teaching of 
the Egyptians and Persians . on the subject of these two 
principles/' 1

212 HISTORY OF POWY8 FADOO. 



THE WISDOM OF THE SERPENT. 

" Genesis iii, 1. — 'Now the serpent was more subtile than 
any beast of the field ;' yet according to the Pentateuchal 
fable, he not only tempted Eve to transgress the commandment 
of Adoni (Jehovah), but convicted him of an untruth. 

" Genesis iii, 2. — 'And the woman said unto the serpent, We 
may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, but of the fruit 
of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, 
Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die/ 

" For this statement she was warranted, for 

"Genesis ii, 16. — 'Adoni (Jehovah or Yahaveh) commanded 
the man, saying, Of every tree of the garden thou may est 
freely eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil 
thou shalt not eat of it ; for in the day that tJwu eatest thereof 
thou shalt surely die.' 

"Genesis iii, 4. — 'And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye 
shall not surely die ; for God doth know that in the day ye eat 
thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, 
knowing good and evil/ 

" 6. ' And the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and 
that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to 
make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat; and 
gave unto her husband with her, and he did eat/ 

And they did not die for several centuries afterwards. 

"Genesis iii, 22. — 'And Adoni (Yahaveh) said, Behold, the man 
has become as one of us, to know good and evil : and now lest 
he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and 
eat, and live for ever ; therefore Adoni sent him forth from 
the garden of Eden to till the ground from whence he was 
taken. So he drove out the man/ 

"24. 'And he placed at the east of the garden of Eden 
cherubims, and a flaming sword, which turned every way, 
to keep the way of the tree of life/ 

"So that, 1 according to this story, this serpent, more subtile 
than any beast of the field, was either more intelligent or 
more truthful than Adoni (Yahaveh) ; and there was no dif- 
ference between Adam, after he had eaten of the fruit of 
the tree of knowledge and become as one of ' us ' gods, and 
Adoni, except in im mortality /* 



THE COURT OF JEHOVAH. 213 



THE COURT OF JEHOVAH. 

" In the twenty-second chapter of the First Book of Kings 
we read that when Ahab, or Achab, King of Israel, and 
Jehoshaphat, King of Judah, wished to know whether their 
attempt to recover Ramoth-Gilead would be successful or 
not, they summoned the prophets of Baal and the prophets of 
Jehovah into their presence, to hear what their prophecy would 
be. 

t€ One of them, Micaiah, presents to our view Adoni (Je- 
hovah) sitting on his throne with his celestial attendants 
standing around him. 

" God says to his celestial court (1 Kings xxii, 20), 
* Who shall persuade Ahab, that he may go up and fall at 
Ramoth-Gilead V And one said on this manner, and another 
said on that manner. 

"And there came forth a spirit, and stood before Adoni 
(Jehovah), and said 'I will persuade him.' 

"And Adoni said unto him, 'Wherewith ?' And he said, 'I 
will go forth, and I will be a lying spirit in the mouth of all 
his prophets/ And he said, ' Thou shalt persuade him, and pre- 
vail also ; go forth and do so.' And the angel or messenger 
departed on his errand." 

A similar story to this one is related by Homer 
{Iliad, Books iii and iv). 

"Once, when the armies of the Greeks and Trojans were drawn 
up in battle array, Alexandros (Paris, who had run off with 
Helen, the wife of his host, Menelaus) challenged all the Argive 
chieftains to fight him man to man in deadly combat ; and, 
Menelaus having accepted the challenge, Alexandros thus ad- 
dressed his brother the noble Hector. ' If, Hector, thou wilt 
have me do battle and fight, make the Trojans and all the 
Achaians sit down, and set me in the midst, and Menelaus 
dear to Ares, to fight for Helen and all her wealth. And 
whichever shall vanquish and gain the upper hand, let him 
take all the wealth aright, and the woman, and bear them 
home. And let the rest pledge friendship and sure oaths ; 
so may ye dwell in deep-soiled Troy, and let them depart to 
Argos, pasture-land of horses, and Achaia, home of fair 
women.'

whether once more we shall arouse ill war and the dread battle 
din, or put friendship between the foes. Moreover, if this were 
welcome to all and well pleasing, the city of King Priam may 
yet be a habitation, and Menelaus take back Helen to Argos.' 

" So said he, but Athene and Hera murmured thereat, who 
were sitting by him and devising ills for the Trojans ; and 
Hera, the ox-eyed queen, persuaded Zeus that, with all speed 
he should charge Athene to betake her to the fierce battle din 
of Trojans and Achaians, and to essay that the Trojans may 
first take upon them to do violence to the Achaians in their 
triumph, despite the oaths/ 

" So said she, and the father of men and gods disregarded 
not ; forthwith he spake to Athene winged words : € Betake 
thee with all speed to the host, to the midst of Trojans and 
Achaians, and essay that the Trojans may first take upon them 
to do violence to the Achaians in their triumph despite the 
oaths/ 

"So spake he, and roused Athene that already was set thereon: 
and from Olympus' height she darted down. Even as the son 
of Kronos sendeth a star, a portent for mariners, or a wide host 
of men, bright shining, and therefrom are scattered sparks in 
multitude, even in such guise sped Pallas Athene to earth, and 
leapt into their midst, and taking the form of man she entered 
the throng of Trojans, and having found the son of Lykaon, a 
noble and stalwart warrior, she told him to shoot Menelaus, 
and vow to Apollo, the lord of archery, to sacrifice a goodly 
hecatomb of firstling lambs, when he should return to his home 
in the city of Zeleia. 

" So spake Athene, and persuaded his fool's heart. Forth- 
with he unsheathed his polished bow of horn of a wild ibex 
that he himself had killed when hunting in the rocky moun- 
tains. Then he opened the lid of his quiver, and took forth a 
feathered arrow, and laid the bitter dart upon the string, and 
vowed to Apollo Lykeios, the lord of archery, to sacrifice a 
goodly hecatomb of firstling lambs when he should have 
returned to his home in the city of holy Zeleia. Then, having 
bent the great bow into a round, the horn twanged, and the 
string sang aloud, and the keen arrow leapt eager to wing his 
way amid the throng, and wounded Menelaus, and, in conse- 
quence of this, the war between the Greeks and Trojans com- 
menced again." 



216 HISTORY OP POWYS FADOG. 



THE FALLEN ANGELS. 

" We read in the Bible that ' it came to pass, when men began 
to multiply on the face of the earth, and daughters were born 
to them, that the sons of God saw the daughters of men that 
they were fair ; and they took them wives of all they chose. 
.... There were giants in the earth in those days ; and also 
after that, when the sons of God came unto the daughters of 
men, and they bore children to them, the same became mighty 
men, which were of old men of renown ; and it repented the 
Lord that he had made man on the earth, and it grieved him at 
his heart/ 1 

" It is stated in the Book of Enoch 2 that two hundred sons 
of heaven or angels descended upon Ardis, the top of Mount 
Arm on, under the leadership of Samyaza, and selected wives 
among the most beautiful daughters of men, who became the 
mothers of monstrous giants, of appetites so destructive that 
they not only devoured birds, beasts, reptiles, and fishes, but 
even lived as cannibals, on human flesh. 

" This appalling reign of violence and cruelty on earth at 
length aroused Michael, Gabriel, Raphael, and other loyal 
members of the heavenly host; and on the appeal for retri- 
bution to the throne of God, the giant offspring of the 
apostate angels were supernaturally excited to destroy each 
other ; and Samyaza, with his companions in crime, was hurled 
in fetters beneath the earth, to await in darkness the Day of 
Judgment, in which they shall be taken away in the lowest 
depths of the fire in torments, and in confinement shall they 
be shut up for ever. 8 

" The credibility of this story is attested by apostles. In the 
Second Epistle of Peter we read : 4 f For if God spared not the 
angels that sinned, but cast them down to hell, and delivered 
them into chains of darkness to be reserved unto judgment/ 
And again in Jude : 6 ' And the angels which kept not their first 
estate, but left their own habitation, He hath reserved in ever- 
lasting darkness unto the judgment of the great day.' 



1 Gen. vi. 2 Enoch, vii-x. 3 Enoch, x, 16. 

* 2 Pet. ii, 4. 5 Jude, 6. 



THE DAY OF JUDGMENT. 217 

Who can doubt that the authors of these epistles were 
familiar with, and accepted the Book of Enoch as inspired 
Scripture, more especially as Jude forthwith names Enoch 
as a prophet." 1 



THE DAY- OP JUDGMENT. 

" In the book of Enoch we find full and elaborate details of 
the Messianic kingdom, the Son of Man, the Elect One, the 
Son of God, supreme in righteousness, knowledge, and 
wisdom, pre-exi stent ' before the creation of the world', and 
' proclaimed before the Lord of all spirits, before the sun and 
the stars of the heaven were created.' 

"'Behold he comes with ten thousand of his saints, to 
execute judgment upon them, and destroy the wicked, and 
reprove all the carnal for everything which the sinful and 
ungodly have done and committed against him/ 2 

" 'The Lord of Spirits sat upon the throne of his glory, and 
the spirit of righteousness was poured out over him. The word 
of his mouth shall destroy all the sinners and the ungodly, who 
shall perish at his presence. In that day shall all the kings, 
the princes, the exalted, and those who possess the earth, 
stand up, behold, and perceive that he is sitting upon the 
throne of his glory, that before him the saints shall be judged 
in righteousness, and that nothing which shall be spoken 
before him shall be spoken in vain. 

" 'Trouble shall come upon them as upon a woman in travail. 
One portion of them shall look upon another. They shall be 
astonished, and shall humble their countenance, and trouble 
shall seize them when they shall behold this Son of Woman 
sitting upon the throne of his glory. Then shall the kings, 
the princes, and all who possess the earth glorify him who was 
concealed ; for from the beginning the Son of Man existed in 
secret, whom the Most High preserved in the presence of His 
power, and revealed to the elect/ 3 

"'He shall sow the congregation of the saints and of the 
elect, and all the elect shall stand before Him in that day. All 
the kings, the princes, the exalted, and those who rule over

218 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

the earth shall fall down on their faces before Him, and shall 
worship Him. They shall fix their hopes on this Son of Man, 
shall pray to Him and petition Him for mercy. 

" ' Then shall the Lord of Spirits hasten to expel them from 
His presence. Their faces shall be full of confusion. The 
angels shall take them to punishment, that vengeance may be 
inflicted on those who have oppressed His children and His 
elect ; but the saints and elect shall be safe in that Day ; the 
Lord of Spirits shall reign over them, and with this Son of 
Man shall they dwell, eat, lie down, and rise up for ever/ 1 

" In the New Testament we find that Jesus communicated 
to His disciples the Messianic glories predicted by Enoch. 

" Matt, xvi, 27, 28 : 'For the Son of Man shall come in the 
glory of His Father with His angels, and then He shall reward 
every man according to his works. Verily, I say unto you, 
there be some standing here which shall not taste of death 
till they see the Son of Man coming in His kingdom/ 

"Matt, xxiv, 30, 31, 34-36 : 'And then shall appear the sign 
of the Son of Man in heaven ; and then shall all the tribes 
of the earth mourn ; and they shall see the Son of Man coming 
in the clouds of heaven, with power and great glory. And He 
shall send His angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and 
they shall gather together His elect from the four winds, from 
one end of heaven to the other. Verily, I say unto you, this 
generation shall not pass away till all these things be fulfilled/' 



HADES, OR HELL. 

The following story is taken from Mrs. Crowe's Night 
Side of Nature. 

" Some ninety years ago, there flourished in Glasgow a club 
of young men, which from the extreme profligacy of its mem- 
bers and the licentiousness of their orgies, was commonly called 
the Hell Club. Besides their nightly or weekly meetings, they 
held one grand annual saturnalia, in which each tried to excel 
the other in drunkenness and blasphemy ; and on these 
occasions there was no star amongst them whose lurid light 



Enoch, Ixi. 



HADES, OR HELL. 219 

was more conspicuous than that of young Mr. Archibald 

B , who, endowed with brilliant talents and handsome 

person, had held out great promise in his boyhood, and raised 
hopes which had been completely frustrated by his subsequent 
reckless dissipations. 

" One morning, after returning from this annual festival, Mr. 
Archibald B., having retired to bed, dreamt the following 
dream : — 

"He fancied that he himself was mounted on a favourite 
black horse that he always rode, and that he was proceeding 
towards his own house, then a country seat embowered by 
trees, and situated upon a hill, now entirely built over and 
forming part of the city, when a stranger, whom the darkness 
of the night prevented his distinctly discerning, suddenly 
seized his horse's rein, saying, € You must go with me.' 

" ' And who are you V exclaimed the young man, with a 
volley of oaths, whilst he struggled to free himself. 

" ' That you will see by-and-bye', returned the other, in a 
tone that excited unaccountable terror in the youth, who, 
plunging his spurs into his horse, attempted to fly. But in 
vain : however fast the animal flew, the stranger was still 
beside him, till at length, in his desperate efforts to escape, the 
rider was thrown, but instead of being dashed to the earth, as 
he expected, he found himself falling — falling— falling still, as 
if sinking into the bowels of the earth. 

" At length, a period being put to this mysterious descent, 
he found breath to inquire of his companion, who was still 
beside him, whither they were going : ' Where am I ? Where 
are you taking me ? ' he exclaimed. 

" € To Hell ! ' replied the stranger, and immediately inter- 
minable echoes repeated the fearful sound, ' To Hell ! To 
Hell ! To Hell ! ' 

"At length a light appeared, which soon increased to a 
blaze ; but instead of the cries, and groans, and lamentings 
the terrified traveller expected, nothing met his ear but sounds 
of music, mirth, and jollity ; and he found himself at the en- 
trance of a superb building, far exceeding any he had seen 
constructed by human hands. Within, too, what a scene ! 
No amusement, employment, or pursuit of man on earth, but 
was here being carried on with a vehemence that excited his 
unutterable amazement. There the young and lovely still 
swam through the mazes of the giddy dance. There the 
panting steed still bore his brutal rider through the excitement 
of the goaded race. There! over the midnight bowl, the 



220 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

intemperate still drawled out the wanton song or maudlin 
blasphemy ! The gambler plied for ever his endless game, and 
the slaves of Mammon toiled through eternity their bitter 
task ; whilst all the magnificence of earth paled before that 
which now met his view ! 

" He soon perceived that he was among old acquaintances, 
whom he knew to be dead, and each, he observed, was pur- 
suing the object, whatever it was, that formerly engrossed 
him ; when, finding himself relieved of the presence of his 
unwelcome conductor, he ventured to address his former friend, 
Mrs. D., whom he saw sitting, as had been her wont on earth, 
absorbed at loo, requesting her to rest from the game, and 
introduce him to the pleasures of the place, which appeared 
to him to be very unlike what he had expected, and, indeed an 
extremely agreeable one. But, with a cry of agony, she 
answered, that there was no rest in Hell ; that they must ever 
toil on at those very pleasures ; and innumerable voices echoed 
through the interminable vaults, * There is no rest in Hell !' 
whilst, throwing open their vests, each disclosed in his bosom 
an ever-burning flame ! These, they said, were the pleasures 
of Hell ; their choice on earth was now their inevitable doom. 
In the midst of the horror this scene inspired, his conductor 
returned, and, at his earnest entreaty, restored him again to 
earth ; but, as he quitted him, he said, ' Remember, in a year 
and a day we meet again/ 

" At this crisis of his dream the sleeper awoke, feverish and 
ill ; and whether from the effect of the dream, or of his pre- 
ceding orgies, he was so unwell as to be obliged to keep his bed 
for several days, during which period he had time for many 
serious reflections, which terminated in a resolution to abandon 
the club and his licentious companions altogether. 

" He was no sooner well, however, than they flocked around 
him, bent on recovering so valuable a member of their society ; 
and having wrung from him a confession of the cause of his 
defection, which, as may be supposed, appeared to them 
eminently ridiculous, they soon contrived to make him ashamed 
of his good resolution. He joined them again, resumed his 
former course of life, and when the annual saturnalia came 
round, he found himself with his glass in hand, at the table, 
when the president, rising to make the accustomed speech, 
began with saying, 'Gentlemen: this being leap-year, it is a 
year and a day since our last anniversary/ etc., etc. The 
words struck upon the young man's ear like a knell; but* 
ashamed to expose his weakness to the jeers of his companions, 



HADES, OR HELL. 221 

he sat out the feast, plying himself with wine even more 
liberally than usual, in order to drown his intrusive thoughts ; 
till in the gloom of a winter's morning he mounted Ijis horse 
to ride home. Some hours afterwards, the horse was found 
with his saddle and bridle on, quietly grazing by the roadside, 
about halfway between the city and Mr. B/s house ; whilst a 
few yards off lay the corpse of his master/

Now this story is no fiction ; the circumstance hap- 
pened as here related. An account of it was published 
at the time, but the copies were bought by the family. 
Two or three, however, were preserved, and the narrative 
has been reprinted. 

This dream is evidently of a symbolical character, and 
the interpretation seems to be, that the evil passions and 
criminal pursuits which have been indulged in here, 
become our curse hereafter. (See the' account of the 
" Old Kent Manor House", vol. ii.) " I do not mean to 
imply", says Mrs. Crowe, " that the ordinary amuse- 
ments of life are criminal; far from it. There is no 
harm in dancing, nor in playing at loo, either ; but if 
people make these things the whole business of their 
lives, and think of nothing else, cultivating no higher 
tastes, or forming no higher aspirations, what sort of 
preparation are they making for another world ? I can 
hardly imagine that anybody would wish to be doing 
these things to all eternity, the more especially that it is 
most frequently ennui that drives their votaries into 
excesses even here ; but if they have allowed their minds 
to be entirely absorbed in such frivolities and trivialities, 
surely they cannot expect that God will, by a miracle, sud- 
denly obliterate these tastes and inclinations, and inspire 
them with others better suited to their new condition. 
It was their business to do that for themselves whilst 
here ; and such a process of preparation is not in the 
slightest degree inconsistent with the enjoyment of all 
manner of harmless pleasures, on the contrary, it gives 
the greatest zest to them : for a life in which there is 
nothing serious, in which all is play and diversion, is, 



222 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

beyond all doubt, next to a life of active, persevering 
wickedness, the saddest thing under the sun. But 
let evervbodv remember, that we see in nature no 
violeut transitions, everything advances by almost in- 
sensible steps, at least, everything that is to endure ; and, 
therefore, to expect that because they have .quitted their 
fleshly bodies, which they always knew were but a tem- 
porary appurtenance, doomed to perish and decay, they 
themselves are to undergo a sudden and miraculous 
conversion and purification, which is to elevate them into 
fit companions for the angels, and the just ones who have 
passed away, is surely one of the most inconsistent, 
unreasonable, and pernicious errors that mankind ever 
indulged in." 

The Greeks and Romans believed in a tripartite 
kingdom of the dead. There were the Elysian fields, 
a region in which a certain amount of happiness was 
enjoyed, and Tartarus, the place of punishment for the 
wicked, each of which was comparatively but thinly 
inhabited. But there was also a mid-region or Purgatory, 
peopled with innumerable hosts of wandering and mourn- 
ful spirits, who, although undergoing no torments, are 
represented as incessantly bewailing their condition, 
pining for the life they once enjoyed in the body, long- 
ing after the things of the earth, aud occupying them- 
selves with the same pursuits and objects as had for- 
merly constituted their business or their pleasure. Old 
habits are still dear to them, and they cannot snap the 
link that binds them to the earth (see vol. ii, p. 92). 

In the first volume of this work I have given the story 
of Thespesius, who, having fallen into a trance, his spirit 
went to the upper regions. He states that the souls of 
the dead, on quitting the body, appeared like a bubble 
of light, out of which a human form was quickly evolved. 
That of these, some shot away at once in a direct line, 
with great rapidity, whilst others, on the contrary, 
seemed unable to find their due course, and continued 
to hover about, till at length they also darted away in 
one direction or another. He recognised few of these 



HADES, OR HELL. 223 

persons he saw, but those whom he did, and sought to 
address, avoided him with terror. Some of these spirits 
were entirely pervaded by a mild, clear radiance, like 
that of the full moon ; through others there appeared 
faint streaks, that diminished this splendour ; whilst 
others, on the contrary, were distinguished by spots, or 
stripes of black, or of a dark colour, like the marks on 
the skin of a viper. 

Mrs. Crowe, in her Night Side of Nature, states that 
she knew two young girls, then under the care of Dr. A., 
of Edinburgh, who hoped, chiefly by means of mag- 
netism, to restore them to sight. These young women 
were in the habit of saying, when in the magnetic state 
— for they were both, more or less, clairvoyantes — that 
the people whom Dr. A. was magnetising in the same 
room presented very different appearances. Some of 
them they described as looking bright, whilst others were, 
in different degrees, streaked with black. " When the 
body is about to die, that which cannot die, and which, 
to spare words, I will call the soul, departs from it. 
Whither, we do not know; but, in the first place, we 
have no reason to believe that the space destined for its 
habitation is far removed from the earth, since, knowing 
nothing about it, we are equally entitled to suppose the 
contrary ; and, in the next, that which we call distance is 
a condition that merely regards material objects, and of 
which a spirit is quite independent, just as our thoughts 
are, which can travel from here to China, and back again 
in a second of time. Well, then, supposing this being 
to exist somewhere, and it is not unreasonable to sup- 
pose that the souls of the inhabitants of each planet 
continue to hover within the sphere of that planet, to 
which, for anything we can tell, they may be attached by 
a magnetic attraction, supposing it to find itself in space, 
free of the body, endowed with the memory of the past, 
and consequently with a consciousness of its own de- 
serts, able to perceive that which we do not ordinarily 
perceive, namely, those who have passed into a similar 
state with itself, will it not naturally seek its place 



224 HISTORY OP POWYS FADOG. 

amongst those spirits which most resemble itself, and 
with whom, therefore, it must have the most affinity? 
On earth, the good seek the good, and the wicked the 
wicked ; and the axiom, ' that like associates with like', 
we cannot doubt will be true hereafter as now. There 
are many conditions, and our intuitive sense of what is 
fit and just, must needs assure us that it is so. There 
are too many degrees of moral worth and moral un worth 
amongst mankind to permit of our supposing that justice 
could be satisfied by an abrupt division into two oppo- 
site classes. On the contrary, there must be infinite 
shades of desert ; and, as we must consider that that 
which a spirit enters into on leaving the body, is not so 
much a place as a condition, so there must be as many 
degrees of happiness or suffering as there are individuals, 
each carrying with him his own Heaven or Hell. For 
it is a vulgar notion to imagine that Heaven and Hell 
are places ; they are states ; and it is in ourselves that 
we must look for both. When we leave the body, we 
carry them with us, — 'as the tree falls, so it shall lie'. 
The soul which here has wallowed in wickedness or been 
sunk in sensuality, will not be suddenly purified by the 
death of the body ; its moral condition remains what its 
earthly sojourn has trained it to, but its means of indulg- 
ing its propensities are lost. If it has had no godly 
aspirations here, it will not be drawn to God there ; and 
if it has so bound itself to the body that it has known 
no happiness, but that to which the body ministered, it 
will be incapable of happiness when deprived of that 
means of enjoyment. Here we see at once what a 
variety of conditions must necessarily ensue ; how many 
comparatively negative states there must be betwixt 
those of positive happiness or positive misery. 

" We may thus conceive how a soul, on entering upon 
this new condition, must find its own place or state ; if 
its thoughts and aspirations have been heavenward, and 
its pursuits noble, its condition will be heavenly. The 
contemplation of God's works, seen, not as by our mortal 
eyes, but in their beauty and their truth, and ever-glow- 



HADES, OR HELL. 225 

ing sentiments of love and gratitude, and, for aught we 
know, good offices to the souls in need or distress, would 
constitute a suitable heaven, or happiness, for such a 
being ; an incapacity for such pleasures, and the absence 
of all others, would constitute a negative state, in which 
the chief suffering would consist in mournful regrets 
and a vague longing for something better, which the un- 
trained soul that never lifted itself from the earth knows 
not how to seek ; whilst malignant passions and un- 
quenchable desires would constitute the appropriate hell 
of the wicked ; for we must remember, that although a 
spirit is independent of those physical laws which are 
the conditions of matter, the moral law, which is inde- 
structible, belongs peculiarly to it, that is, to the spirit, 
and is inseparable from it. 

"This condition of the wicked, we are led to hope, is 
not final, nor does it seem consistent with the love and 
mercy of God that it should be so. There must be few of us, 
indeed, who leave this earth fit for heaven ; for, although 
the immediate frame of mind in which dissolution takes 
place is probably very important, it is surely a pernicious 
error, encouraged by jail chaplains and philanthropists, 
that a late repentance and a few parting prayers can 
purify a soul sullied by years of wickedness. Would we 
at once receive such a one into our intimate communion 
and love ? Should we not require time for the stains of 
vice to be washed away and habits of virtue to be 
formed ? Assuredly we should. And how can we ima- 
gine that the purity of heaven is to be sullied by that 
approximation that the purity of earth would forbid ? It 
would be cruel to say, irrational to think, that this late 
repentance is of no avail ; it is doubtless so far of avail 
that the straining upwards and the heavenly aspirations 
of the parting soul are carried with it, so that when it is 
free, instead of choosing darkness, it will flee to as much 
light as is in itself; and be ready, through the mercy of 
God, and the ministering of brighter spirits, to receive 
more. But in this case, as also in the innumerable in- 
stances of those who die in what may be called a nega- 

VOL. IV. 15

tive state, the advance must be progressive, though, 
wherever the desire exists, I must believe that this 
advance is possible. If not, wherefore did Christ, after 
being "put to death in the flesh", go and "preach to the 
spirits in prison" ? It would have been a mockery to 
preach salvation to those who had no hope ; nor would 
they, having no hope, have listened to the preacher." 



COMOT OF CYNLLAITH. 

The comot of Cynllaith is divided into two parts, 
Cynllaith Owain, alias Cynllaith Ringild, and Cynllaith 
Tir Iarll. . 



CYNLLAITH OWAIN. 

Cynllaith Owain, or Cynllaith Ringild, was formerly a 
portion of the territories of Owain Glyndwfrdwy, w r hose 
chief mansion was at Sycharth in this lordship, a de- 
scription of which by the bard Iolo Goch has been 
already given. On the attainder of Owain, it was seized 
by the Crown of England, where it remained till the 
time of Elizabeth, who granted it, together with Cyn- 
llaith Tir Iarll, to Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. 
Subsequently they again fell to the Crown ; and the 
following lands were granted (2 James I), 1614, to 
Owain Vaughan of Llwydiarth, Esq., viz., " all those 
clauses and lands in Cynllaith Owain, called Rhos Ddu, 
Tir Madog ab Gruffydd, Perch Kesles, and other lands 
lately in the possession of Maurice ab Ieuan ab Howel ; l 
the lands of Bryn y Gadfa and Kirkraan, in the town- 
ship of Lloran ; all those profits and commodities, of 
whatsoever kind, in Cynllaith Owain, called customs, 
Tretledame, Adde Advocar et Ambor et de firma Wood- 
ward de Cynllaith Owain ; and the mill formerly in the 
tenure of Robert ab Edward ; all once possessed by 

1 Maurice ab Ieuan ab Howel ab Tolyn of Llangedwyn, ab Ieuan 
Gethin ab Madog Oytfin. See " Llangedwyn in Mochnant Is Rhaiadr." 



CYNLLAITH TIR IARLL. 227 

Robert, Earl of Leicester (in escambio, i.e., in exchange), 
and formerly the property of Owain Glyndwr, at- 
tainted." 

These lands were to be held and kept by Owain 
Vaughan for himself and his heirs in soccage, as of the 
manor of East Greenwich. 1 Owain Vaughan married 
Catherine, daughter and heiress of Maurice ab Robert of 
Llangedwyn, second son of the above-named Maurice 
ab Ieuan ab Howel. 

The lordship of Cynllaith Owain now belongs to Sir 
W. W. Wynn, Bart. 



CYNLLAITH TIR IARLL. 

This lordship was seized by Roger Mortimer at the 
time of the murder of the two young princes, Llywelyn 
and Gruffydd, and eventually fell to the Crown. It is 
now the property of the Chirk Castle family. It is 
divided into ten townships, viz. : — 1, half of the villa of 
Llansilin ; 2, Bodlith; 3, Lledrod; 4, half of Rhiwlas; 
5, Tregeiriog; 6, Llanarmon ; 7, Tref Llywarch ; 8, half 
of Moelfr£ ; 9, half of Ystym Wallen; and 10, Carreg 
Hwfa. 

The comot of Cynllaith contains the parish of 
Llansilin, and parts of the parishes of Llangedwyn, 
Llanarmon Mynydd Mawr, Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog, 
and Llangadwaladr. 

The parish of Llansilin contains the townships of 
Bodlith, Llan, Lledrod, Lloran, Llys Din Wallawn, Moel 
Fr6, Prif Bwll, Sycharth, Rhiwlas Uwch y Foel, Rhiwlas 
Is y Foel, Tref Owen, and Sychdin, which last township 
lies in the lordship of Oswestry. 

The parish of Llangedwyn is divided into the town- 
ships of Llangedwyn and Ysgrwgan or Esgair Wgan. 
This Gwgan was the father of St. Cedwyn. (Myv. Arch., 
p. 420.) Part of this parish is in Mochnant Is Rhaiadr. 

The parish of Llanarmon Mynydd Mawr lies partly

in the comot of Cynllaith and partly in that of Moch- 
nant Is Rhaiadr, ami is not divided into townships. 

The parish of Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog lies also 
partly in the comots of Cynllaith and Mochnant Is 
Rhaiadr. It is divided into the three townships of 
Tre'r Llan, Tref Llywarch, and Lloran. 

The parish of Llangadwaladr lies partly in the comot 
of Cynllaith, and partly in that of Nanheudwy. It is 
divided into the township of Tre'r Llan, which contains 
the church, and is entirely surrounded by the parish of 
Llansilin and the townships of Tref Geiriog and Nant 
Hir, both of which are detached, and lie three miles 
from the church, from which they are separated by the 
parish of Llansilin. They are on the north side of the 
river Ceiriog, and in the comot of Nanheudwy.

In the British Museum are two folio and two quarto 
volumes of Welsh pedigrees, by John Davies of Rhiwlas 
(A dditional MSS. ,9864-7.) They were purchased by the 
late Thomas Pennant, of Downing in Tegeingl, Esq., 
from the executors of David Jones of Trefriw, one of the 
earliest printers in North Wales, who was presented with 
a fount of type by the celebrated Mr. Lewis Morris. 
The son of Mr. Pennant, David Pennant of Downing, 
Esq., gave them to the British Museum in 1835. The 
pedigrees in the folio volumes are brought down to 
1700, 1 and are of great value, as John Griffith of Cae 
Cyriog, Esq., and John Davies of Rhiwlas, had access to 
the now missing MS. of Lewys Dwnn. 2

GARTHERYR. 




GARTHERYR. 

Ieuan Gethin of Moeliwrch and Lloran Ucbaf, by his 
second wife Arddun, had, besides lolyn.whosedescendants 
settled at Llangedwyn, another son, Maurice Gethin, who 
had Gartheryr. He married Margaret, daughter and co- 
heir of David ab y Gwion Lloyd, Baron of Hendwr in 
Edeyrnion, who bore, argent, on a chev. gules, three 
Meurs-de-lyB or, by whom he had issue five sons and two 
daughters : 1, William of Gartheryr, of whom presently; 
2, Howel of Oswestry, who died in a.d. 1481, and 
married Margaret, daughter and heiress of Howel ab 
leuan ab Iorwerth of Glascoed (see p. 236), by whom he 
was ancestor of the Kyffins of Glascoed and the Lloyds 
of Lloran Isaf ; 3, Llewelyn, ancestor of the Lloyds of 
Moelfre" ; 4, Geoffrey Kyffin, who married Anne, daughter 
of John Lord Strange of Knockyn (gules, two lions 
passant argent), whose only daughter and heiress Jane, 
married Sir Peter Newton, Knt ; 5, Rhys of Oswestry. 
Of the daughters, the eldest married David Say of Welsh- 
pool, and the youngest, Margaret, married Edward 
Hanmer. 1 

William ab Maurice of Gartheryr, the eldest son, must, 
I imagine, have joined Owain Glyndwr, for the king of 
England sent the " Arglwyddi Gleision " to arrest him 
for high treason ; but failing to lay hands upon him, they 
set fire to Gartheryr, which was never afterwards re- 
built. 8

in. John Kyffin, who married Magdalene, daughter of 
John Vaughan of Bryn Hir in Dudlyston, of the family 
of Pentref Morgan, descended from Owain Brogyntyn, 
by whom he had two sons, Humphrey and Richard. 

Watkin Kyffin of Glasgoed, which place he purchased 
from his uncle Gruffydd Kyffin of Cae Coch, was High 
Sheriff for Denbighshire in 1662, and for Montgomery- 
shire in 1663. He married Dorothy, daughter of Owain 
Holland of Berw in Mon, by whom he had issue one son, 
Gruffydd, who died, s. p., in 1661, and six daughters : — 
1, Margaret, heiress of Glasgoed, ux. Sir William 
Williams, Knt., Speaker of the House of Commons, and 
Solicitor-General to James II ; 2, Mary ; 3, Anne, ux.

Matthews, of Blodwel Fechan ; 5, Dorothy, ux , 

and 6, Catherine, ux. John Lloyd of Glanhafon, High 
Sheriff' for co. Montgomery in 1685. (See p. 246.) 

Sir William Williams, jure uxoris, of Glasgoed, was 
Recorder of Chester, Speaker of the House of Commons 
in the time of Charles II, knighted by King James II 
upon being made Solicitor-General, and created a baronet 
6th July 1681. Sir William became acquainted with 
his future wife when she was very young, in consequence 
of having gained a lawsuit for her father at Shrewsbury. 
Having proposed to the young lady at a dance, and 
having obtained her leave to propose himself to her 
father, he accordingly did it. "And what have you ?" 
said the old gentleman pretty roughly to him. " I have, 
sir," said Williams, " a tongue and a gown, and have this 
day saved your estate." The issue of the marriage was 
two sons : — 1, Sir William Williams, second Baronet, 
High Sheriff for co. Denbigh in 1696, of whom presently, 
and 2, John, ancestor of the present Sir William Greville 
Williams of Bodelwyddan, Bart.; and one daughter, 
Emma, ux. Sir Arthur Owen, of Orielton, Bart. 

Sir William Williams, the second Baronet, married, in 
1689, Jane, daughter and heiress of Edward Thelwall

270 HISTORY OF POWVS FADOO. 



GWYDIR. 

This place formerly belonged to Dafydd, son of the 
Baron Howel Coetmor, son of Gruffydd Fychan ab 
Gruffydd ab David of Penmachno in Nant Conwy. 
Gruffydd Fychan had two sons, the Baron Howel 
Coetmor, who lived at Castell Cefel Ynghoetmor, in 
the parish of Llanrwst, and Rhys Gethin of Hendref 
Rhys Gethin and Fedw Deg, in the parish of Bettws 
Wyrion Iddon, now called Bettw3 y Coed. (For an 
account of this family, see Lloyd of Esclys and Dulassau, 
vol. iii, p. 32.) Dafydd ab Howel Coetmor sold Gwydir 
to Maredydd ab Ieuan ab Robert of Cesail Gyfarch, who 
in 1515 commenced to build the present house of Gwydir, 
which was hardly completed at the time of his death, 
which occurred in 1525. He was the ancestor of Sir 
John Wynn of Gwydir, of whom there are still many 
anecdotes related in the neighbourhood. One of these 
tales is the following. 

At the junction of the three cross-roads near Gwydir 
you may see the remains of an old tree, in connection 
with which there are many traditions and anecdotes of 
an interesting character, handed down from generation to 
generation. It was known far and near by the name of 
Y Pren Gwyn, or The Blessed Tree, and was noted as a 
favourite place of gathering of the workpeople of Gwydir, 
who, at the close of their day's labour, were in the habit 
of meeting under its wide-spreading branches ; the old 
amusing themselves by retailing to one another old 
traditions in connection with the neighbourhood, which 
they had heard their parents relate before them, as well, 
perhaps, as reciting some of the patriotic and soul-stirring 
poetry of their ancestors, the whole, no doubt, being 
occasionally spiced by rare bits of scandal and gossip 
about their neighbours. At the same time, the young 
people amused themselves by dancing, singing to the 
harp, and other innocent amusements ; and often young 



GWYDIR. 271 

lovers would take advantage of the occasion to appoint 
a later hour to meet again under the shade of old 
Pren Gwyn, to enjoy more privately each other's company, 
and to talk over life's young dream — love. 

An old character of the neighbourhood, of the name 
of Betty 'r Batten, who enjoyed also the reputation of 
being a witch and a fortune-teller, cleverly managed to 
keep up her reputation as such by often hiding herself 
among the branches of the old tree, and the ivy with 
which it was covered ; through which means she became 
possessed of many secrets, and the depositary of many 
a bit of family history and gossip which friends or lovers 
whispered one to another under the shady tree, little 
thinking that there was a witness to all their conversa- 
tions, or one so likely to make profit and fame to herself 
out of such matters. 

At length, Sir John Wynn, who was at the time a 
youth lately returned home from college, in some manner 
heard of old Bettys doings, and being full of energy, and 
fond of sport, determined to punish the old dame for her 
misdeeds, while at the same time affording some fun for 
himself and his neighbours ; and, in order to do so, he 
placed the Gwydir jester on the watch, with strict orders 
to let him know at once when next the old sorceress 
ascended to her hiding-place. In the meantime, he gave 
orders to several of his attendants to prepare torches 
well soaked in brimstone; giving, as his reason, that he 
wished to smother a swarm of wild bees, which he had 
discovered in his rambles in the woods. Notice at last 
having been brought that the old dame had been tracked 
to the tree, Sir John, with his attendants, neighbours, 
etc., and their torches, proceeded to the Pren Gwyn, 
where, being placed in a circle round the tree, at a given 
signal from Sir John, the brimstone torches were all 
lighted, Sir John crying out, "Now, boys, for our honey." 
Naturally, the fumes from the torches ascended into the 
tree, and in a short time overpowered old Betty, who fell 
insensible in their midst. But, upon her recovery, she, 
in the most solemn manner, went on her bare knees, and 



272 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOO. 

invoked the most horrid imprecations on their heads, at 
the same time menacing them all with the greatest ca- 
lamities. However, all her imprecations and menaces 
having no effect, and the source of her knowledge and 
profit being thus exposed and imperilled, she in a short 
time left the neighbourhood. 

Near Bettws Coed is Rhaiadr Ewynawl, the Foaming 
Cascade, but now called, in the modern guide-books, 
Rhaiadr y Wennol, or the Fall of the Swallow. There is 
an old tradition that, as a penance for his persecution of 
the Roman Catholics, the spirit of Sir John Wynn was 
doomed to remain in the depths of the pool, under this 
fall, there to be purged and purified from his many sins. 
Some people say that it is still there, near the bottom, 
groaning, wailing, moving backwards and forwards, and 
gradually approaching the surface at the rate of a barley- 
corn in a century. 

On the right bank of the Llugwy, in the parish of 
Capel Curig, below the stepping-stones, are the ruins of 
an old monastery, on a meadow belonging to a farm 
called Bryn Gyfeiliau. It was levelled down to the 
ground by Sir John Wynn, who always made use 
of every means in his power to persecute and eradi- 
cate the Roman Catholics, root and branch, out of the 
country. For doing this, as before stated, he was doomed 
to endure a punishment at the bottom of Rhaiadr 
Ewynawl, by a priest. Sir John's name was written 
by him on a piece of parchment, dropped into a bottle 
used to hold the eucharistic wine at this monastery. The 
bottle, with its contents, was plunged into the deep pool 
underneath the falls. This priest, who came from 
Yspytty Ieuan, habitually called his numerous followers 
to the edge of the falls, when the freshet would be high, 
to listen to the wailing and moaning voice of the sinner 
in the abyss below. 

In the fifteenth century, there was a relative of the 
Gwydir family, named David ab Jenkin, a noted war- 
rior and famous outlaw. He spent most of his time at 
Nant Conwy, but we also hear of him at the other side 



GWYDIR. 273 

of the mountains, in Penllyn, Ardudwy, and Eivionydd. 
It is stated that he was a leader of the Lancastrian fac- 
tion, and that he, along with Ieuan ab Robert ab Mare- 
dydd of Cesail Gyfarch (who was great great grand- 
father of Sir John Wynn), and other leaders of the Lan- 
castrians, wasted with fire and sword the suburbs and 
town of Denbigh, and there, by the stroke of his own 
dagger, slew the Red Judge, who was on his seat on 
the bench between two other judges. He then escaped, 
and, some time after, he publicly exposed or exhibited 
the fatal weapon, besmeared and corroded with the blood 
of his unfortunate victim. 

To revenge this, Edward the Fourth sent William Earl 
of Pembroke to lay waste the counties of Carnarvon 
and Meirionydd ; who, having in some degree succeeded 
in his object, decided to have a grand feast in celebration 
of his various victories, which was held in a meadow be- 
longing to a farm at present called Berth Ddu. The day 
of feasting at length arrived, and dainties of all sorts 
were provided, venison and game of every description 
were cooked, a fat ox being roasted whole, as was the 
custom in those days, after simply removing the hide and 
taking out the entrails. Custards of high flavour were 
there in dishes of an immense size. Kegs of wine and 
a plenteous supply of all the intoxicating drinks of those 
days were at hand. In fact, everything was in readi- 
ness, and the hungry revellers were on the point of fall- 
ing to, when, to their surprise, a single arrow was seen 
skimming through the air, descending until it was quiver- 
ing in a piece of meat which was as a centre-piece on the 
table. This was followed by another into their largest 
dish of custard, both being followed by a shower of 
similar missiles, the sight of which threw the whole com- 
pany into a state of the greatest disorder and consterna- 
tion, in the midst of which they fled for their lives, 
leaving all the good things which had been provided to 
be a spoil of their opponent, David ab Jenkin. It seems 
that he, from his hiding-place in a cave at Carreg Gwalch, 
had been a witness of all the preparation for the feast, 

VOL. IV. 18 



274 HISTOKY OF POWYS FADOG. 

and planned this surprise to spoil their sport. This cave 
was a favourite retreat of his, as we find several instances 
of his having retreated to it when in the greatest danger, 
and also when he was deserted by his Lancastrian fol- 
lowers. The place is called, to this day, Ogof Dafydd 
ab Siencyn. or the Cave of Dafydd ab Jenkyn ; the rock 
being called Clogwyn yr Ogof, and is at the summit of 
the above-mentioued Carreg y Gwalch, right opposite to 
the bend in the River Conwy, on the Bettws side of 
Gwydir. Dafydd ab Siencyn was found guilty of high 
treason early in the fifteenth century, and outlawed. 

The old parish church . of Llanrwst was erected by 
Rhun, son of Nefydd Hardd, or the Handsome, as a 
penance for his many deeds of evil, thinking in this 
manner to appease the just indignation of an angry God, 
and hoping by one good action to atone for a life spent 
in wickedness and dissipation. 

It was burnt down in the year 1468, by an army led 
by the Earl of Pembroke, who was authorised by Edward 
the Fourth to devastate this country in revenge for some 
deeds of Dafydd ab Siencyn, as before mentioned. Sir 
John Wynn, in his History of the Gunjdir Family, says 
of this army, " that it accomplished its mission so well 
that it consumed the whole borough of Llanrwst, and all 
Nant Conwy besides, to cold coals, whereof the print is 
yet extant, the very stones of the ruins of manie habita- 
tions, in and along my domaynes, carrying the colour of 
the fire." 

The church, as it stands at present, was erected be- 
tween 1470 and 1480, Gwydir Chapel being added as a 
transept to its east end, by Sir Richard Wynn, in the 
year 1633. There are many objects of interest to lye 
seen in this chapel, one of thorn being the stone recum- 
bent effigy of the Baron Howel Coetmore, and another 
the stone coffin of Lly welyn the Great. 



THE BARON HOWEL COETMOR. 



275 




THE BARON HOWEL COETMOR 

This chieftain bore azure, a chevron inter three fleurs- 
de-lys argent He owned Gwydir and other large 
estates in the neighbourhood of Llanrwst, but generally 
resided at Castell Cefel Ynghoedmor, in the parish of 
Llanrwst ; this castle, according to Gruffydd Hiraethog, 
formerly belonged to Peredur ab Evrawg. He was 
buried at Llanrwst, and his tomb still remains, on which 
his sepulchral effigy is represented recumbent, in plate 
armour, with a tabard of his arms, with this inscrip- 
tion : — " HIC TACET HOEL COETMORE AP GRVFF VYCHAN 

amn." He was the ancestor of the Wynns of Clynog 
Fawr ; Oweus of Talwrn, in Eivionydd ; Lloyds of Pen 
Machno ; and the Wynns of Glyn Llugwy. His descent

LLOYD 
(Vice-Admiral of the " White", 1837, P.P., 24 ;• H.P., 43). 

Robert Lloyd was born 24th March 1765, and died 
17th January 1846, at his seat, Tregayan, co. Anglesey. 
He was the eldest son of Robert Lloyd, Esq., of Uuujs, 
co. Caernarvon, by Margaret Edmunds of Tregayan, only 
daughter of the Rev. Dr. Edmunds, Rector of Aber, in 
the same shire. 

This officer entered the navy, 31st March 1779, on 
board the Valiant, 74, Captain Goodall ; on removing 
from which ship, to a midshipman's berth in thcFairy, 18, 
Captains Berkeley, Keppel, and Brown, he was wounded 
in a sharp action which preceded the capture of that 
sloop by the French frigate, Madame. After a captivity 
of some time in France, he was exchanged about March 
1781, and on his return to England was received on 
board the Medway, 74, Captains Harwood and Edgar. 
He next, between May 1782, and July 1787, served on 
the channel station in the Hebe frigate, Captains Keppel 
and Edward Thorn brough; and on 22nd November 1790, 
he was promoted to the rank of lieutenant. Obtainiug 
an appointment, in December 1792, to the Latona, 38, 
Captains Thornbrough and Hon. Arthur Kaye Leggc, 
Mr. Lloyd fought under the former of those officers in 
the action of the 1st June 1794 ; and on rejoiniug him 
as senior lieutenant in the Robust, 74, he served in Lord 



LLOYD. '279 

Bridport's action, and was severely wounded in the ex- 
pedition to Quiberon. On 6th December 1796, we find 
him promoted to the command of the Racoon sloop jn 
the North Sea ; where, after a short running fight, in 
which the Racoon had one person, the master, killed, 
and four wounded, he succeeded in taking, 11th January 
1798, Le Policrate, French privateer, of 16 guns and 72 
men ; l and, on the 22nd of the same month, La Pensee, 
of 2 guns, 9 swivels, and 32 men. Captain Lloyd, who 
had previously captured Les Amis, of 2 guns, 6 swivels, 
and 31 men, made further prize, 20th October following, 
at the end of a running action of two hours, of La Vigi- 
lante, of 14 guns and 50 men. 2 Prior to his attainment 
of post-rank, 6th December 1799, he had the increased 
good fortune to sink a French lugger, and to effect the 
capture of the privateers, Le Vrai Decide, of 14 guns, 4 
swivels, and 41 men ; and L'Intrepide, of 16 guns, and 
60 men, 13 of whom were killed and wounded. 3 On the 
latter occasion, he unfortunately received a wound in the 
head from a half-pike. His last appointments were : — 
12th January 1801, to the Mars, 74, bearing the flag of 
Rear-Admiral Thorubrough in the channel, where he re- 
mained until April 1802 ; 25th March 1807, to the 
Hussar, 38, in which ship, after assisting at the reduc- 
tion of Copenhagen, he visited North America and the 
West Indies ; 3 1st May 1809 and 25th September 1810, 
to the Guerriere, 40, and Swiftsure, 74, flagship of Sir 
John Borlase Warren, both on the North American sta- 
tion ; and, 11th February 1812 (after ten months of half- 
pay), to the Plantayenet, 74. Between 8th September 
and 17th December 1813, Captain Lloyd took not less 
than twenty sail of vessels, measuring, in the whole, 
about 12,500 tous. 4 Continuing in the Plantagenet until 
paid off in April 1815, Captain Lloyd was at first em- 
ployed in the Baltic, and afterwards, again, in North 
America, where he captured a large number of coasters, 
and accompanied the expeditions against Washington

and New Orleans. On bis return to England, he brought 
with him the bodies of Generals Gibbs and Pakenham. 
He became a Rear- Admiral, 22nd July 1830 ; and a 
Vice- Admiral, 10th January 1837. 

In 1790, Vice-Admiral Lloyd was High Sheriff for 
co. Caernarvon ; as he was, in 1820, for Anglesey. At 
the period of his death he was a deputy-lieutenant for 
the latter county, and a magistrate for both. He married 
in 1798, Elizabeth Charlotte, daughter of Henry Gibbs, 
Esq., of Portsmouth, Surveyor-General of Customs. His 
only daughter was the wife of the late Captain Thomas 
Parry Jones-Parry, R.N. 1

" Sir, — 1 beg leave to acquaint you that yesterday morning 
at daylight, Portsea E.S.E., I fell in with a French lugger 
privateer, to which I immediately gave chase, and an hour 
after I had the satisfaction to capture her; she proves to be

which I have received from Capt. Lloyd of H. M. Sloop Racoon, 
giving an account of his having captured on the 3rd instant

Coxwell, the wound which Capt. Lloid has received in the 
head from a half pike is not daDgerous. He also informs me, 
that soon after the action, the Stag, cutter, joined, and went 
in pursuit of the Brig mentioned in Captain Lloyd's letter." 

" His Majesty's Sloop Racoon, Dover Roads, Dec. 4th. 

" Sir, — I beg leave to acquaint you, that yesterday, at 
10 p.m. Dover, N., about five or six miles, I observed a lugger 
board a brig ; I soon discovered her to be an enemy, and 
made all sail in chase ; after a running fire of about forty 
minutes I laid her alongside, when we were received with a 
smart fire from the cannon and small arms, which was im- 
mediately returned with success ; finding themselves unable to 
make any further resistance, bowsprit and foremast gone, they 
thought tit to strike. She proves to be L'Intrepide, of Calais, 
mounting sixteen guns, and sixty men, quite new, commanded 
by Citizen Saillard, sailed from Boulogne four o'clock yester- 
day evening. I feel myself much indebted to Lieut. Cox well 
(the only commissioned officer I had on board) for the great 
assistance I received from him, as well as the other officers and 
men for their attention in obeying my orders. It is with 
satisfaction I have to state (through Providence) that there is 
only one man wounded. I am sorry to state that the brig 
captured was the Welcomhe, from London to Plymouth with 
malt ; and it was out of my power to pursue her as I must 
have lost my foremast, all my foreshrouds being gone on the 
starboard side. It gives me particular pleasure to have de- 
prived the enemy of a vessel which they considered the largest 
and best sailer from Calais. — I have the honour to be, etc.,

the Channel and Mediterranean until transferred, in 
November 1801, to the Theseus, 74, Captain John Bligh,

was for several months employed in the Baltic. He was 
promoted (while again serving in the West Indies on 
board the Garland) to the command, 27th December

he devoted himself to heavenly matters, which tended 
greatly to console him for the sad temporal loss that he 
had sustained. He was the son of Clydno ab Ynyr

320 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 



THOMAS THELWALL. 



This gentleman was the sixth son of John Wynn 
Thelwall. In Queen Elizabeth's time he became ' a 
soldier in the Low Countries. After his return home, 
he married a rich widow in Ruthin, by whom he had an 
only daughter and heiress, Dorothy The] wall, to whom 
he gave his lands. She married Robert Davies of 
Ruthin, who left about £200 per annum to his only son, 
Peter Davies, besides considerable portions to his many 
daughters ; which son of his dying young and unmarried, 
the estate became obscured, being divided amongst his 
several sisters. The said Thomas Thelwall lived to be a 
very old man, surviving his nine brethren. 



SIR BEVIS THELWALL, KNT. 

Sir Bevis was the eighth son of John Wynn Thelwall, 
Esq. He was first bound apprentice to one Mr. Allen, 
the greatest mercer in Cheapside, and mercer to Queen 
Elizabeth. After he had served out his time, his master 
thought so well of him, that he bestowed his daughter 
in marriage to him, and took him to be his partner, 
during which time he kept correspondence with King 
James when he lived in Scotland, which occasioned that 
king, after his accession to the crown of England, to 
make this Sir Bevis page of his bedchamber, and 
bestowed on him the clerkship of the great wardrobe. 
He was thrice well married : firstly, to Elizabeth Allen, 
by whom he had an only daughter, Margaret, who 
married John Lloyd of Bod Idris in I&l, and was mother 
to Sir Evan Lloyd, the first baronet of that family ; 
secondly, he married Mrs. Peryn, a rich widow in Lon- 
don, by whom he had no issue ; and, thirdly, he married 
Mrs. Elizabeth Champion, a rich citizen's widow in Lon- 
don, by whom he had several sons and daughters. He 
was a very handsome, proper man, discreet and honest, 
endowed with all the necessary qualities of a complete 
courtier. He lived to a great age.

AMBROSE THELWALL, Esq. 

"This gentleman was the ninth son of John Wynn 
Thelwalh He first took service with Sir Francis Bacon, 
Knt., Lord Verulam, and Lord High Chancellor of Eng- 
land, from whom he went to the service of the Earl of 
Kellie, a Scotch nobleman, captain of King James's 
guard in England, and a person in great favour with his 
then majesty. During his attendance on that Earl he 
became so much in favour with him that he brought in 
several of his countrymen and friends to be yeomen of 
the guard. From his last service he was preferred by 
King James to be his yeoman of the robe, during whose 
reign, because of his wisdom and wit, he lived in a 
flourishing condition, improving his own estate, and 
bountiful to his friends. He was much beloved by all 
his acquaintances." (See p. 316.)

SALUSBURY OF LLYWENI. 335 

I. Thomas Salusbury of Llyweni, Esq., became impli- 
cated in the Babington Plot. This unfortunate gentle- 
man was, with his fellows, fourteen in number, brought 
to trial on the 13th Sept. 1586, charged with a twofold 
conspiracy, a plot to murder Queen Elizabeth, and 
another to raise a rebellion in the realm in favour of 
Mary Queen of Scots, then imprisoned at Chartley. Of 
the prisoners, Babington, Ballard, Savage, Tichbourne, 
and Donne, admitted their guilt, as to one or other of 
these plots, and were therefore convicted on their own 
confessions. Of the remaining seven (including the heir 
of Llyweni), who pleaded " Not Guilty", five were con- 
victed as accomplices, on the questionable authority of 
passages extracted from the confessions of the others ; 
and two, Gage and Bellamy, as accessories after the fact, 
because they had aided and abetted the conspirators 
after the proclamation. This, the last direct male heir 
of the chivalrous house of Llyweni, married Margaret, 
daughter of Maurice Wynn of Gwydir, Esq., and by 
this descendant of the royal stem of North Wales, who 
is interred in Trinity Church, Chester, he left an only 
child, Margaret Salusbury, who married Edward Norreys 
of Speke, co. Lancaster, Esq. 

ii. Sir John Salusbury of Llyweni, surnamed The 
Strong \ who succeeded to Llyweni, on the execution of 
his eldest brother. He was Esquire of the Body to 
Queen Elizabeth, received the honour of knighthood, and 
represented the county of Denbigh in Parliament. He 
married Ursula, daughter of Henry Earl of Derby, and 
by her, who died in 1591, had issue, 
I. Henry (Sir), his heir. 

ii. John (Captain), killed at the Siege of Prague, 
ob. s. p. 

in. William, died at Llyweni, s. p. 

rv. Ferdinando, died at Llyweni on his return from 
the war in the Palatinate ; and on his male issue (if 
any) would appear to have devolved the representation 
of the male line of the house of Llyweni, on the death 
of Sir John Salusbury, the fourth and last baronet.

these studies." In the portrait of the baronet at Llyweni, 
he is taking leave of his lady and three children, dressed 
in a buff surtout and brown boots, with a rich scimitar 
by his side. He is attended by two greyhounds, and a 
groom, dressed in a long canvas gown, holding a horse, 
with the arms of the house on the man's shoulders by 
way of badge. Sir Thomas died in 1643, leaving issue, 
by Hester his wife, daughter of Sir Edward Tirrell of

CANTREF RHAIADR.— MOCHNANT IS RHAIADR. 

This Coraot, together with that of Mochnant Uwch 
Rhaiadr in Cantref y Fyrnwy, once belonged to Ior- 
werth Goch, a younger son of Prince Maredydd ab 
Bleddyn. This chieftain fought, together with the other 
British princes, at the battle of Crogen in 1163 against 
the English, but soon afterwards he appears to have 
sided with Henry II. In consequence of which, Owain, 
Lord of Mechain Is y Coed, second son of Prince Madog 
ab Maredydd ab Bleddyn, and his cousin Owain Cyfeiliog, 
took, in the year 1164, the whole territory of their uncle, 
Iorwerth Goch, and shared it between them ; so that 
Mochnant Uwch Khaiadr fell to Owain Cyfeiliog, and 
Mochnant Is Rhaiadr to Owain ab Madog of Mechain. 
An account of the descendants of Iorwerth Goch will 
be given in the " Lordship of Oswestry". 

Mochnant Is Rhaiadr contains the townships of Tre'r 
Llan, Trefweru, Henfachau, Banhadla Uchaf, Banhadla 
Isaf, Trefeiliw, Trebys Fawr, Trebys Fach, Garth Eryr, 
and Brithdir, in the parish of Llanrhaiadr yn Mochnant, 1

ARMS OF HOWEL COETMOR. 

The Arms of this Chieftain, as they appear in the old 
mansion of Dol y Moch, are, azure, a chevron inter 
three spear heads argent, imbrued gules. Dol y Moch 
belonged in the 30th Elizabeth, 1588, to John ab Robert 
ab Howel ab Gruffydd ab David ab Howel Coetmore. 



THOMAS OF COED HELEN. 371 

This David ab Howel Coetmore sold Gwydir to Mare- 
dydd ab Ieuan ab Robert of Cesail Gyfarch (see p. 276). 
John ab Robert married Margaret, daughter of Robert ab 
GrufFydd ab Robert Vychan of TalhSnbont, by whom he 
had a son and heir, 

Robert ab John of Dol y Moch, who married Catherine, 
daughter of Ieuan ab Robert ab Ieuan of Bwlch Coed 
Dyffryn, now called Plas Tan y Bwlch, ab Iorwerth ab 
Adda ab Dafydd ab Ieuan ab Adda ab Iorwerth ab 
Maredydd ab Einion ab Gwgan ab Merwydd ab Collwyn 
ab Tangno, Lord of Eivionydd and Ardudwy. By this 
lady Robert had a son and heir, John ab Robert, who 
sold Dol y Moch and all his estates to Edmund Vaughan, 
of Fron Haulog, in the parish of Llanfair Talhaiarn. 

Subsequently Dol y Moch became the property of a 
family of the name of Jones, a younger branch of the 
Joneses of Craflwyn, and their arms, viz., gules, three 
chevronells argent, quartered with those of Collwyn ab 
Tangno, sable, a chevron inter three fleurs-de-lys argent, 
still remain in one of the rooms. After the Joneses, Dol y 
Moch became the property of a family of the name of 
Bankes, in whose possession it remained for some years ; 
but it now belongs to the Oakleys of Plas Tan y Bwlch. 
(Hanes Plwyf Ffestiniog: Gan G. S. Williams. Wrex- 
ham, Hughes and Son.) 

According to Owen's British Remains, the arras borne 
by Howel Coetmor were, azure, a chevron, inter three 
fleurs-de-lys argent, as given at page 275.

I have obtained from other pedigrees some little

CLOCHFAEN. 

Ieuan ab GrufFydd ab Howel Lloyd of Clochfaen, 
who was living in 1430 (refer to vol. ii, p. 203), was 
slain, together with his friend, Dafydd Fychan of Llyn- 
went, by troops lying in ambush on the bank of the 
River Wye, in the reign of Henry VI. He was buried 
in Llangurig Church. We learn from his elegy, by the 
bard Ieuan Deulwyn, who flourished about the year 
1460, in the reign of the above-named Henry VI, that 
at their death (see vol. ii, p. 275) — 



374 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOO. 

" Two lands diverse are reft of joy, 
For leuan's land hath sprung from Troy ; 
Fair ding's church is wrapped in gloom, 
There lies the lion in the tomb. 
Fall'n is that ancient line full low, 
Glides Howel'a stream with weakened flow. 
Like land of court and church bereft 
Is Powys without Ieuan left." 

Dafydd Fychan's death was, however, avenged by his 
brother-in-law, Thomas Vaughan of Hergest, who was 
afterwards taken prisoner at the Battle of Danesmore, 
near Banbury, and beheaded, in the reign of Edward IV, 
1469. The "diverse lands" mentioned in the elegy are 
Arwystli and Maelienydd Kerry.

1 " Hen weiddi pen," A. The "hen" in the next line seems to 
have caught the eye of the transcriber, who then wrote " pen" for 
" pan", to rhyme to it ; a sure sign of a careless and ignorant scribe.

1 From this vague notice of Ieuan's activity against the Scots it 
may be gathered that Ieuan took part iu quelling the Northern in- 
surrection against Elizabeth's Protestant government.

of Maredydd (?) of Dyifryn Aled, by whom he had five daughters, aU 
married, and co-heirs of his estates. — Hut of Powys Fadog, iii, 45. 

5 It is not clear whether " the two goshawks" were sons of Ieuan, or 
of John, who died before his father. The epithet " urddasor > (dig- 
nified, or ordained) may imply that they were Clerks.

1 The seven sons of Ieuan. 

1 The expression implies that Hugh was dead when the elegy 
was written. 

3 The pedigree (Hist, of Powys Fadog y iii, 45, and Arch. Camb., 
1877, p. 3d) states that William was "ancestor of the Lloyds of Erw 
Gwyddel" The name is unknown in Llansannan, but there is, or 
was, a place named Cymddel, or Erw Cymddel, in that parish, which 
became part of the Chwibren estate. From the inscription on the 
tombstone of Henry Lloyd of Rhan Hir, son of Roger Lloyd of Havod 
Unos, in Llaugerniew churchyard, it appears that Henry married 
Mary, daughter of Thomas Lloyd of Cymddel. Chwibren belonged to 
the family of Llewelyn Chwith, a son of Bleddyn Llwyd, whose grand- 
son, Rhys ab Ieuan, was Esquire of the Body to Edw. IV. Rhys and 
his cousin -german, David Jenkin, "were very turbulent in the Lan- 
castrian War". — Pennant's Hist, of Wkitford. 

4 William was not in his father's stead at Havod Unos, where the 
poem agrees with the genealogies in stating that he was succeeded by 
his son Harry. Either another portion of the property is referred to, 
or, possibly his military prowess, in which he may have equalled his 
father. 

5 William's paternal grandfather was Ieuan. David must, then, 
have been his mother's father. An "old Welsh MS." states that 
William ab Ieuan Lloyd married Catharine, daughter of Dafydd 
Llwyd ab Morris of Llansannan, and that Thomas Lloyd (son of 
Dafydd V) married Jane, daughter of Thomas Vaughan of Pant Gils. 
A Robert Lloyd lived at Chwibren in 1660, and (his son probably) 
William Lloyd, by his will, proved in 1771, left his lands, etc., to his 
brother Thomas, having then two sons, Robert and John, with legacies 
to his brothers Robert and David, and sisters, nephews, and nieces, 
which carries the descent late into the last century. It would be 
interesting to know if the estate is still in the family. 

6 Now a farm near Ruthiu. For the pedigree, see p. 182.

of Plas Iolyn, the Standard-bearer, and founder of the houses of 
Rhiwlas and Voelas. s " Mis," A. 

8 " Les merchlyn," A. and R, from which no sense is deducible. 
Geoffrey Lloyd was ancestor of the Lloyds of Dyffryn Erechthlyn, 
whose heiress he seems to have married ; hence it would seem that 
the name has been corrupted in the text by a transcriber ignorant of 
his connexion with the place, or Erechthlyn from "merllt/ri' 9 stagnant 
water.

6 In the Ctvtta Cyfarwydd appears the following entry : — " 1615. 
Md' that upon Monday in Easter week being the xth day of Aprill 
1615, one Thomas Wynne (sonne and heire app'nt of Robert Wynne 
ap Thomas of Lloyney in the parish of Llanroost) and one Katherin 
Lloid (second daughter of Evan Lloid of Wickwer, one of the clVes 
attending the Counsell of the Marches of Wales) were m'ied in the 
chapell in Wickwer called Cappel Ffynnon-Vair by John Ireland, 
cFre, etc. clxxx/t. marraige porcon. ,, From this, it would seem that 
Robert Wynne of Llwynau, the father of Thomas, was the person 
here referred to. But there is another Llwynau in Llanrhaiadr in 
Ceinmarch.

Lamentation we know, we have to wail, 

A great lamentation, grievous it is to us, 

Here have we lamentations many, 

Chill is the lament, when the good are taken away. 

Jesus our God hath caused, very severe it was, 

Ieuan Lloyd to be taken to Heaven. 

The lamentation reaches to the height of Gwynedd, 

Lamenting that he is gone yonder to his grave. 

Active and bold was Ieuan Lloyd the Stout, 

Son of David, grandson of stout Meredydd. 10

396 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

He was his country's splendour and its pinnacle, 

A chieftain was he, derived from Cynwric. 

Chilling, when he was interred, has it been to bewail, 

The wolf of the ancient line of Bleddyn Lloyd. 

Mishap hath fallen upon Gwynedd, 

Radvach's scion hath been given to his grave, 

The best of blood, that hath preserved its honour, 

The blood of Hedd Molwynog, until now. 

Valiant was he, woe his men that he is taken, 

Gentle and loving, tho' bred of Hedd the Rough ! 20 

The purest of men, yet in battle a shield-bearer, 

With hand and heart in likeness to a king. 

Tower'd o'er other men his person tall, 

His face was higher than the tribe's of Ynyr. 

Since Cadell's "son hath none been found, 

Nor better ever was, to face the foe. 

Forward hath he burst thro* the fray, 

With career akin to Rhys Gethin's. 

Firm was his judgment with kindliness, 

Tet he lived without a single office in the county. 30 

Ungrasping he lived in his hall on high, 

And without stint, with the fortune of a baron's house, 

Albeit Ieuan was without office, 

None ever made off with his property. 

Where he bestowed hate, it was the cause 

That he had more power than six office-bearers. 

He loved not, he willed not, to hold 

For a single day save his due. 

To John 'twas his wont and his office, 

With his own sustenance to sustain the poor. 40 

A wight of humour, good and pious, 

A pleasant man was Ieuan in his day. 

Llangerniew, his village, 

Was happy in his lifetime. 

The tavern, where Ieuan resorted, 

Was fame to the pure and noble Hart. 

None to be sure would give money, 

Where was one with his hand in his purse. 

Farewell the pleasant feast, 

Farewell to credit or loan, 50 

In the Crown's need the hero would give, 

When the din of wars racked the shire. 

He was his country's arm above a thousand, 

He was swift in pursuit of the Scots. 

There he displayed no steel but was embroiled ; 



ELEGY ON IEUAN LLOYD OF HAVOD UNOS. 397 

He was as a crackling thorn to all the heroes of Christen- 
dom. 

While he lived, he lived a hero. 

Two wives had this excellent man ; 

One from Nannau in direct descent, 

And a royal maid of Mona for the second. 60 

From these, like plants in an ancient garden, 

There is sprung a fair grove of beautiful children ; 

The eldest son of my chief 

In his life-time went to Heaven ; 

And his two noble goshawks, 

And his land to his daughters after him. 

One is a gracious gentleman — 

Calling upon Jesus — a Churchman ; 

Of the seven gentlemen, men we love, 

Hugh was one, may Heaven be his ! 70 

William, sprightly and wise, 

Is in the place of the blessed Ieuan, his father : 

There we sing the leader of his race ; 

To lead the whole country is he skilled ; 

A gentleman of his class the most excellent 

And with conscience ever void of offence. 

A man whose prudence is a token of affection, 

With learning competent for leadership in the land. 

And David's grandson, devoid of pride, 

By Llansannan's heiress, is his heir. 80 

To Richard, sprig of bravery, forward as a dart, 

Came the gentle heiress of Bacheurig. 

Harry, a gentleman long beloved, is Ieuan Lloyd's second 
heir; 

To Harry, the second soul of Rhos, 

We come, to Havod Unos ; 

A good man, who has a name free from reproach, 

A manly youth, and by the second mother ; 

And his wife, of blood distinguished and noble, 

Of a fair fine heritage heiress. 

Ne'er in our land has there been a better, 90 

Be it that long be the life of Harry ; 

To Ieuan, beyond what has been reckoned, 

Is Geoffrey Lloyd, of lion's rib and mien ; 

And, to gain God's help to follow him, 

An heiress of the lofty nest of Erechthlyn. 

Great hath grown the pure progeny, 

Nobly great is the growth of Ieuan's daughters, 

And their bestowal, to be magnified hereafter, 



398 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

They, and their illustrious heirs : 

One, a grace to religion, to Henbl&s ; 100 

The second, to Dyffryn A led ; 

The third, in fnlness of form to better 

His line, to the heir of Llwynau ; 

The fourth — Jesu in the solemn Judgment 

Preserve her — to Maes Cadarn. 

And the fifth, of fair- shaped eye-brow, 

Be she the luck of Bodlewyddan. 

The sixth maiden, derived from blood of Mona, 

To the fortunate wight of Ffynnogion. 

See here the seed of a noble bounteous orchard ; 110 

From the old Lion's strength a vineyard illustrious, 

Its career is a wonderful tale, 

'Twere too much to reckon his grandchildren. 

May they increase — the gentle chicks — 

With the increase of the heroes from Cunedda; 

With single growth from his roots, a guileless heritage, 

Grows up the offspring of Ieuan. 

Eight and twenty-one, a fair house, 

A fragment, and two besides, 

Was the number the day that went forth. 120 

A fruitful shoot from his offspring, 

A power of children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, 

Has shot up, grace is with us ! % 

What land, what market, what spot, 

What parish is without Ieuan's people ? 

From the gentleman stout and wise is bestowed a forest 

indeed, 
A token of unfailing happiness, 
The gain of a renowned name, the gain of men, 
And the gaining of a long life of high renown. 
The life of the powerful man, him whom we love, 130 
Has been the age of ten times eight and seven. 
And strong and healthful has the gentleman been, 
And reputed for wisdom and for wit, 
Strong, healthy. Famous is the spot. 
May leuan, bright and blessed, go to Heaven ! 



PURGATORY. 399 



PURGATORY. 

(Continued from page 226.) 

" The doctrine of evolution has familiarised us with the con- 
ception of a perpetual progress as the law of cosmic develop- 
ment : and this has given rise to the idea that this life, and for 
aught we can tell, the next also, may be merely stages of our 
career. A priori arguments must always be taken with ex- 
treme caution, but there is an a priori objection to the orthodox 
scheme, which may be given for what it is worth. The notion 
of a career divided into a few decades for the first part, and 
eternity for the second, is, to say the least, unsymmetrical. 
Moreover, it must have sometimes occurred even to the 
orthodox that the alleged transition from our present state of 
imperfection to the absolute perfection of heaven is rather too 
violent. The Roman Catholic institution of Purgatory is an 
attempt to bridge this gap, but the conception in itself is too 
crude to be of much value. Natura nihil facit per saltum is a 
doctrine which is now universally recognised in physical 
science, and it is hard to avoid extending its application to our 
dreams of a hereafter. The whole course of scientific ex- 
perience shows the process of evolution to be gradual, and an 
arbitrary exclusion of humanity from the operation of this law 
is unwarranted by any direct evidence, is repugnant to many 
of our strongest instincts, and is opposed to all the analogies 
which science suggests. Now if this be so, if this gradual 
evolution towards perfection be accepted, it is clear that this 
world of ours needs not even be the first stage of the process, 
so far as we are concerned, and it is almost impossible that it 
should be the last, or rather the last but one. 

" And here I think that a ray of light breaks in upon the 
obscurity of the question. I believe myself that those philoso- 
phers are right who suppose our development after death to 
be towards a continually increasing degree of spirituality. In 
this case it seems probable that in each stage of our career a 
certain minimum advance in that direction must be attained, 
in order to enable us to enter upon the next stage with com- 
parative ease and comfort. A homely illustration may make 
ray meaning clearer. When an athlete determines to engage 
in a race, he prepares himself for the event by a careful system 
of diet and exercise, commonly known as € training'. The 
restrictions imposed by this system are highly distasteful to 
many men, and if an individual be either weak-minded or 



400 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOO. 

unconscientious, be may indulge in unlawful relaxations of 
these. 

" But there is an accurately proportioned retribution before 
him. Just so far as his physical efficiency has been impaired 
by these secret excesses, so will he suffer from physical distress 
in the hour of contest. Similarly, just so far as we neglect to 
prepare ourselves in this life for the more spiritual surroundings 
of the next, to that extent our lack of spiritual ' condition', so 
to speak, will be an unfailing source of distress until the 
deficiency is made good. Still applying the evolutionist ex- 
planation, we must conclude that supreme happiness will be 
attained when the individual becomes- in complete harmony 
with his environment ; but till this point be reached, he must 
needs be subject to all the discomforts which a want of such 
harmony entails. 

" Stripped then of all superstitions and other improper 
accretions, Heaven may be regarded as the name for that com- 
plete harmony with our environment for which we are not 
forbidden to hope, and Hell as the name for those discomforts 
which must inevitably befall an organism surrounded by an 
environment of higher development than its own. Rightly 
regarded then, heaven is no special paradise of miraculous 
creation reserved for the objects of a divine preference or the 
adherents of a particular theological creed; but it is the 
natural goal of progress, the supreme accomplishment of the 
possibilities of human nature, and within the reach of all 
mankind. So, also, hell is not a place of punishment, devised 
for offenders against a code of divine ordinances ; still less is 
it a torture-house where divine vindictiveness may enjoy the 
agonies of some misguided heretics. It can be merely the 
sum total of evils which are inexorably attached to the imper- 
fect adaptation of an organism to its environment, but which 
are morally colourless, and altogether lack either the character 
or the design of avenging penalties, consciously imposed by 
an offended God/' 1 

In the Westminster Confession of Faith, of which I 
gave a short account in vol. iii, it is stated, at page 315, 
that " besides the two places of heaven and hell for souls 
separated from their bodies, the Scripture acknowledges 
none". 

In the New Testament, however, we find the following 
statements in support of the purgatorial state. 

1 The Nineteenth Century, August 1883, p. 27. 



PURGATORY. 401 

"Agree with thine adversary (the law) whilst thou art 
in the way with him (in this world), lest the judge 
deliver thee to the officer, and thou be cast into prison 
(purgatory) ; verily thou shalt not depart thence till thou 
hast paid the uttermost farthing." That is, that we cannot 
rise to a higher state until we have done penance suffi- 
cient to thoroughly purge us from those sins we had not 
repented of and done sufficient penance for on earth. 

Now we know from the New Testament and the Creed 
of St. Athanasius, that the torment of those souls that 
are cast into Hell will be for everlasting ages, which is 
confirmed by Jesus Christ himself, who will say to the 
wicked on the day of judgment, " Depart, ye cursed, 
into everlasting Jire, prepared for the Devil and his 
Angels." Therefore, the state in which souls are purged 
from their sins cannot be Hell, from which we see 
that they shall never depart, whilst from the state or 
conditions which we call Purgatory, the Scripture ex- 
pressly states that they will depart, that is, that they 
will rise to a higher sphere after they have paid the 
uttermost farthing. 

Again, in the same New Testament, it is declared, 
" That the tire shall try- every man's works, whether they 
be hay, straw, chaff, stubble ; if there should be much 
hay, straw, stubble mixed up with his good works, he 
shall suffer loss, nevertheless he shall be saved, yet so as 
by fire." We have seen that it is expressly stated that 
no soul that has been cast into Hell shall ever escape out 
of it, for there the fire will be, as Jesus Christ expressly 
declares, for everlasting ages ; therefore, Hell is not the 
place in which a man's good works will be weighed in 
the balance, and all the worthlessness and sinfulness 
mixed up with his good works be purged away, and yet 
the soul will be eventually saved, yet so as by fire ; but 
it can be no other place than that in which the soul 
will have to be purged for those sins which it has not 
repented of and done sufficient penance for on earth. 
This agrees exactly with the doctrines of the Egyptian 
Book of the Dead, out of which I have given some 

vol. iv. 26 



402 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

quotations in the account of the Church of Llanfihangel 
ym Mlodwel, and it is to aid the suffering souls in pur- 
gatory that prayers should be offered up, to enable them 
to free themselves from their sins which keep them 
chained down to the earth, as I have endeavoured to 
prove from the many accounts of apparitions which I 
have given in this history. The Old Testament also 
declares that "It is a good and holy thing to pray for 
the dead, that they may be freed from the burden of 
their sins," and the Jews retain the practice to this day, 
as do those Christians who belong to the Latin and 
Greek Churches. The Christians, however, who belong 
to the Calvinistic, the Anglican, and the Nonconformist 
creeds, do not offer up prayers in their services for their 
departed relatives and friends, as may be seen by any 
one who would take the trouble to read the Anglican 
Burial Service, where not one prayer is offered up to 
God to have mercy upon the soul which had quitted the 
corpse they were about to inter. 

I have previously stated, in the first volume, that 
death will never affect the spirit or soul. What we call 
death merely happens to affect the husk or body that is 
left behind when the spirit leaves it a lifeless corpse, and 
the spirit itself, now freed from its prison, proceeds to 
occupy that state which it has prepared for itself on 
earth, for "as the tree falls, there it shall lie." It will 
leave its body with the same propensities, hatreds, and 
affections it possessed when it inhabited its body, and 
will occupy that state most congenial to itself, and 
make its own Heaven or Hell ; for a spirit must be 
where its affections or its bad propensities will locate 
it. What a man has made himself, he will be ; his 
state is the result of his past life, and his heaven or 
hell are in himself. At death we enter upon a new 
course of life ; and what that life shall be depends upon 
ourselves. If we have provided oil for our lamps, and 
fitted ourselves for a noble destiny and the fellowship 
of the great and good spirits who have passed away, such 
will be our portion ; but if we have misused our talent, 



PURGATORY. 403 

and sunk our souls in the sensual pleasures or base pas- 
sions of this world, we shall carry our desires and pas- 
sions with us to make our torment in the other; or 
perhaps be tethered to the earth by some inextinguish- 
able remorse or disappointed scheme (an instance of 
which has been given in the " Old Kent Manor House 
Family", in vol. ii), and that, perhaps, for hundreds of 
years. It is surely absurd to expect that, because our 
bodies have decayed and fallen away, or been destroyed 
by an accident, a miracle is to be wrought in our 
favour, and that the misers love of gold, or the pro- 
fligate's love of vice, is to be immediately extinguished, 
and to be superseded by inclinations and tastes better 
suited to his new condition ! New circumstances do not 
so rapidly engender a new mind here, that we should 
hope they will do so there ; more especially as, in the 
first place, we do not know what facilities of improve- 
ment may remain to us ; and in the second, since the 
law that like seeks like, must be undeviating, the blind 
will seek the blind, and not those who could help them 
to light. 1 

That the spirit when freed from the body still feels 
the same affection for those it loved whilst on earth, 
may be proved from the following story, which I read in 
a book called the Court of Heaven, written by a Jesuit 
who was preceptor to King Louis XIV. I have referred 
to this book before, in the first volume ; the story, how- 
ever, is as follows : 

It appears that a gentleman called Demostratos, and 
Charito, his wife, had a daughter called Philinnion, who 
died ; and that about six months afterwards, a youth 
named Machates, who had come to visit them, wassurprised, 
on retiring to the apartments destined to strangers, by 
receiving the visits of a young maiden, who eats and 
drinks and exchanges gifts with him. Some accident 
having taken the old nurse that way, she, amazed by the 

1 Mrs. Crowe's Night Side of Nature, 

26 * 



4 04 HISTORY OF POWIS FADOG. 

sight, summoned her master and mistress to behold their 
daughter, who is there sitting with the guest. 

Of course they do not believe her; but at length, 
wearied by her importunities, the mother follows her to 
the guest's chamber ; the young people, however, are now 
asleep, but, looking through the velvet hangings, she 
perceives what she believes to be her daughter. Still 
unable to credit her senses, she resolves to wait till 
morning before disturbing them ; but, when she comes 
again, the young lady has departed, whilst Machates, on 
being interrogated, confesses that Philinnion had been 
with him, but that she had admitted to him that it was 
unknown to her parents. Upon this the amazement and 
agitation of the mother w r ere naturally very great, espe- 
cially when Machates showed her a ring which the girl 
had given him, and a bodice which she had left behind 
her ; and his amazement was no less when he heard the 
story they had to tell. He, however, promised that if 
she returned the next night he would let them see her, 
for he found it impossible to believe that his bride was 
their dead daughter. He suspected, on the contrary, 
that some thieves had stripped her body of the clothes 
and ornaments in which she had been buried, and that 
the girl who came to his room had bought them When, 
therefore, she arrived, his servant having had orders to 
summon the father and mother, they came ; and, per- 
ceiving that it was really their daughter, they fell to 
embracing her, with tears. But she reproached them for 
the intrusion, declaring that she had been permitted to 
spend three days with the stranger in the house of her 
birth ; but that now she must go to the appointed place, 
and immediately fell down dead, and the dead body 
remained there visible to all. 

The news of this strange event soon spread abroad; the 
house was surrounded by crowds of people, and the pre- 
fect was obliged to take measures to prevent a tumult 
On the following morning, at an early hour, the inhabi- 
tants assembled in the theatre, and from thence they pro- 
ceeded to the vault, in order to ascertain if the body of 



PURGATORY. 405 

Philinnion was where it had been deposited six months 
before. It was not ; but, on the bier, there lay the ring 
and cap which Machates had presented to her the first 
night she visited him ; showing that she had returned 
there in the interim. They then proceeded to the house 
of Democrates, where they saw the body, which it was 
decreed must now be buried without the bounds of the 
city. Numerous religious ceremonies and sacrifices fol- 
lowed, and the unfortunate Machates, seized with horror, 
put an end to his own life. 

This story comes to us exceedingly well authenticated, 
inasmuch as the details were forwarded by the prefect of 
the city in which the thing occurred to the pro-consul of 
his province, and by the latter were laid before the Em- 

Seror Hadrian ; and, as it was not the custom to mystify 
Lomau emperors, we are constrained to believe that 
what the prefect and pro-consul communicated to him, 
they had good reason for believing themselves. 

In the first volume of this work I have related a story 
out of the same work that this last tale is taken from, of 
a soldier who told a Spanish lord under whom he had 
served in the army that he had been dead for some 
time, but had obtained leave to come and see him, and 
that he and his companion were on their way to do 
penance in the places where they had done wrong. 

Baronius, who lived in the sixteenth century, relates 
in his Annals, that the two illustrious friends, Michael 
Mercatus and Marcellinus Ficinus, after a long discourse 
on the nature of the soul, had agreed that, if possible, 
whichever died first should return and visit the other. 
Some time afterwards, whilst Mercatus was engaged in 
study, at an early hour in the morning, he suddenly 
heard the noise of a horse galloping in the street, which 
presently stopped at his door, and the voice of his friend 
Ficinus exclaimed, "Oh, Michael! Oh, Michael! vera 
sunt ilia" "Those things are true." Whereupon Mercatus 
hastily opened his window, and espied his friend Ficinus 
on a white steed. He called after him ; but he galloped 
away out of his sight. On sending to Florence, to in- 



406 HISTORY Or POWYS FADOG. 

quire for Ficinus, he learnt that he had died about that 

hour he called to him. 

All tradition seems to show that the spirits most 

frequently manifested to man have been evidently not in 

a state of bliss, that is, in Purgatory ; whilst, when 

bright ones appeared, it has been to serve him ; and, 

hence, the old persuasion that they were chiefly the 

wicked that haunted the earth. And hence, also, the 

foundation for the belief that not only the murderer, but 

the murdered, returned to vex the living ; and the just 

view, that in taking away life the injury is not confined 

to the body, but extends to the surprised and angry soul, 

which is 

" Cut off, even in the blossom of its sin, 
Unhousel'd, disappointed, unaneal'd, 
No reckoning made, but sent to its account 
With all its imperfections on its head." 

Mrs. Crowe states, also, that amongst the numerous 
narrations she had met with, in which the dead have re- 
turned to ask the prayers, or services of the living, they 
do not seem to apply by any means exclusively to mem- 
bers of their own church, numerous instances of which 
she gives in the Night Side of Nature. The attrait 
which seems to guide their selection of individuals is 
evidently not of a polemical nature. The pure worship 
of God and the inexorable moral law are what seem to 
prevail in the other world, and not the dogmatic theology 
which makes so much of the misery of this. 

There is a fundamental truth in all religions ; the real 
end of all is morality, however the means may be mis- 
taken, and however corrupt, selfish, ambitious, and 
sectarian the mass of the teachers of these various forms 
of religion and dogmas may, and generally do, become ; 
whilst the effect of prayer, in whatever form, or to what- 
ever ideal of the Deity it may be offered, provided that 
offering be honestly and earnestly made, is precisely the 
same to the supplicant, and in its results. 

The late Lieutenant-General Robertson of Lawers, 
who served during the whole of the American war, 



PURGATORY. 407 

brought home with him, at its termination, a negro, who 
went by the name of Black Tom, and who continued in 
his service. The room appropriated to the use of this 
man in the General's house in Edinburgh was on the 
ground floor ; and he was heard frequently to complain 
that he could not rest in it, for that every night the 
figure of a headless lady, with a child in her arms, rose 
out of the hearth and frightened him dreadfully. Of 
course, nobody believed this story, and it was supposed 
to be the dream of intoxication, as Tom was not remark- 
able for sobriety ; but, strange to say, when the old man- 
sion was pulled down to build Gillespie's Hospital, which 
stands upon its site, there was found under the hearth- 
stone in that apartment a box containing the body of a 
female from which the head had been severed; and 
beside her lay the remains of an infant, wrapped in a pillow- 
case trimmed with lace. She appeared, poor lady, to 
have been suddenly murdered, for she was dressed, and 
her scissors were yet hanging by a ribbon to her side, 
and her thimble was also in the box, having apparently 
fallen from the shrivelled finger. 

Many persons will have heard of the "Wild Troop of 
Rodenstein", but few are aware of the curious amount of 
evidence there is in favour of the strange belief which 
prevails amongst the inhabitants of that region. The 
story goes, that the former possessors of the Castles of 
Rodenstein and Schnellert, were robbers and pirates, 
who committed, in conjunction, all manner of enor- 
mities ; and that to this day, the Troop, with their horses 
and carnages and dogs, are heard every now and then 
wildly rushing along the road betwixt the two castles. 
Up to the middle of the last century regular reports 
were made to the authorities in the neighbourhood of 
the periods when the Troop had passed. Since that, the 
Landgericht, or Court Leet, has been removed to Furthe, 
and they trouble themselves no longer about the Roden- 
stein Troop ; but a traveller named Wirth, who a few 
years ago undertook to examine into the affair, declares 
the people assert that the passage of the visionary caval-

THE WISDOM OF THE SERPENT. 

i C:-*ti n *eJ fr*>m p. 212.) 

** If the compilers of Genesis had wisely restricted its con- 
fer::* to the narrative of the Elohist, thev would have trans- 
m;::ed to posterity a conception o( Divinity worthy of Hebrew 
genius : bat, through the injudicious fusion of his work with 
that of the more credulous Jehovist, they debased the majestic 
image of Elohism by legends more characteristic of Olympian 
mythology than divine revelation. 

" The work of the Jehovist begins with the fourth verse of 
the second, and is carried on to the end of the fourth chapter, 
to be again renewed through the interpolation of the Elohistic 
narrative. His version of the Creation and Fall of Man, bor- 
rowed through Persian from still more ancient mythologies, 
receives no confirmation from the Elohist, who tells us that 
' Elohim said, Let us make man in our own image, after our 
likeness. ... So Elohim created man in his own image, in the 
image of Elohim created he him, male and female created he 
them.' And again, 'This is the book of the generation of 
Adam. In the day that Elohitn created man, in the likeness of 
Elohim made he him, male and female created he them, and 
blessed them, and called their name Adam, in the day when 
they were created.' 



THE WISDOM OF THE SERPENT. 409 

" Elohim, being a plural noun, has been accepted by imagin- 
ative piety as the primeval annunciation of the Trinity. It is, 
however, a general term applied by other nations to the collec- 
tive gods, inclusive of the Hebrew Deity : and the context, 
furthermore, indicates plurality of divinity through the andro- 
gynous essence of Elohim, who, in harmony with Egyptian 
and Indian theosophy, was personally masculine and feminine: 
' In the image of Elohim created he him, male and female 
created he them .... and called their name Adam/ 

" In the eyes of the Elohist, woman is not therefore the 
second-hand product of an Adamite rib, but an original crea- 
tion after the same Divine archetype as man, and equally 
sharing with him the benediction of Elohim and the possession 
of the earth. 

" The Jehovist knows nothing of humanity fashioned in the 
image of a God. Adam is simply vitalised dust, and Eve a 
mere after-thought devised for his comfort and convenience. 

" Let us imagine the sudden awakening of primeval man to 
startled consciousness of the external world, confused by sen- 
sation, alarmed by sound, dazzled by light, absorbed in the 
mysterious sympathy of sex, and yet unconsciously entrusted, 
in this condition of mental imbecility, with the future destinies 
of humanity, staked on his unintelligent obedience to an 
arbitrary command, sustained by a death-penalty conveying no 
meaning to his infantine ignorance. 

" At this supreme crisis, Jehovah retires from the scene ; 
and a mysterious serpent, detected by later theologians as 
Satan, tempts poor, simple-minded Eve with an apple from 
the tree of knowledge ; unless, therefore, divine assistance is 
at hand, the fall of Man is a foregone conclusion. A sudden 
inspiration, a voice from Heaven, an angel's visit, may defeat 
ophidian or satanic design, and snatch mankind from mor- 
tality or perdition ; but, alas ! no miraculous portents arrest 
the hand of Eve, the fatal fruit is gathered, tasted, held to the 
lips of Adam, and the simplicity, which knows no difference 
between the command of a God and the advice of a serpent, 
yields inevitable victory to the wiles of a snake or demon. 

" The heat of the day is past ; Jehovah walks through the 
garden in the cool of the evening ; discovers man's dis- 
obedience ; curses the serpent with the bodily motion evolved 
by ages ; condemns Adam to the labour by which prehistoric 
man had existed for countless generations ; decrees the degra- 
dation of humanity through the domestic bondage of woman, 
henceforth dependent for her social position on the prejudice, 
caprice, and passion of her lord and master ; and finally pro- 



410 HISTORY OF POWYS PADOG. 

nounoes the sentence of death, in apparent unconsciousness 
that mortality had reigned supreme on earth throughout ages 
remote from the chronology of Eden. 

" Modern research, however, redeems us from bondage to 
this superstition. As the evidence of the rocks records the 
remote antiquity of the earth, so also other evidence proclaims 
the countless generations of man ; and as we trace his foot- 
steps to prehistoric ages, and discern his gradual ascent from 
lower to higher conditions of life, we necessarily assign the 
legend of Eden its legitimate place among the myths of 
antiquity." 1 

Professor Lepsius of Berlin, who has exhaustively 
studied the evidence of pyramids, tombs, papyri, fixes 
the date at which Menes, the founder of Memphis, 
ascended to the throne as 3893 b. a, at which remote 
period the Ancient Egyptians possessed a highly organ- 
ised civilisation and most elaborate theology, which could 
only have been evolved through the progressive develop- 
ment of ages unknown to orthodox chronology, which 
fixes the date of the Creation at 4,004 years before 
Christ, and consequently not 100 years before the birth 
of King Menes ; but according to Manetho the age of 
Menes dates back to a period of 5,004 years before the 
Christian era, and the mythological era of Egypt, 24,000 
years. 



ALLEGED DISCOVERY OF FOSSIL MAN. 

An interesting discovery of much importance for geo- 
logical and archaeological science, has recently been made 
in a coal mine at Bully-Grenay, in the French depart- 
ment of Pas de Calais. A new gallery was being 
pierced, when a cavern was broken into which discovered 
the fossil remains of five human beings in a fair state 
of preservation — a man, two women, and two children, 
composed the group. The man measured about seven 
feet, the women six feet six and six feet, the children 
four feet and rather less than this. In addition, some

fragments of arms and utensils of petrified wood and of 
stone, with numerous remains of mammals and fish 
were brought to light. A second subterranean chamber 
enclosed the remains of eleven human bodies of large 
size, several animals, and a large number of various 
objects, with some precious stones. The walls of the 
cave exhibited drawings representing men fighting with 
gigantic animals. Owing to the presence of carbonic 
anhydride, a third and larger chamber, which appeared to 
be empty, was not searched. If the discovery be genuine, 
it is of the greatest value as evidence of the existence of 
prehistoric men, and it will also go far to support the 
ancient tradition of the colossal stature of our remote 
progenitors. — Liverpool Courier, June 28, 1883. (See 
vol. Hi, p. 318.)

Oriental research has been pushed forward with more 
than usual rapidity during the past few months, parti- 
cularly in the department of Assyrian studies. Here 
the most interesting discoveries are those which relate to 
the rise of the Persian Empire and the nationality of 
Cyrus. Ever since the time of Herodotus, Cyrus has 
been regarded as of genuine Persian descent, and the 
founder of a genuinely Persian power. Ktesias, it is true, 
had asserted the contrary, and had made him the son of 
a Mardian bandit ; but the statements of Ktesias have 
long obtained but little credit, and he was suspected of 
making them merely to contradict Herodotus. Now, 
however, two or three clay fragments sent to England 
by Mr. Rassam, have revolutionized our old conception 
of this portion of Oriental history, and thrown an en- 
tirely new light on the subject. Sir Henry Rawlinson 
was the first to draw attention to the importance of the 
new discoveries, in a paper on a cylinder written 1 in the

A PETRIFIED FOREST. 

It is reported (July 1SS3) that an extensive petrified 
forest has been discovered near Corrizo, on the little 
Colorado, Xew Mexico. The road, at a distance of ten 
miles from Corrizo, says a traveller who has just visited 
the spot, enters an immense basin, the slope being nearly 
a semicircle, and this is enclosed by high banks of shale 
and white fine clay. From the banks it required half 
an hour's good drive to reach the heart of the immense 
petrified forest, and there a wonderful phenomenon met 
the gaze. Petrified stumps, limbs, and, in fact, whole 
trees lav about on all sides, the action of the waters for 
centuries having gradually washed away the hills round

about, and the trees which once covered the high table 
lands were now embedded in the valley beneath. Im- 
mense trunks, some of which measured over five feet in 
diameter, were broken and scattered over a surface of 
300 acres ; limbs and twigs covered the sand in every 
direction. Numerous blocks or trunks of this petrified 
wood had the appearance of having just been cut down 
by the woodman's axe, the chips having been scattered 
on the ground. Many of the small particles and even 
the whole heart of some trees had become thoroughly 
crystallised, and the beautifully-tinted cubes sparkled in 
the sunshine like so many precious stones. Every colour 
of the rainbow was duplicated in these crystals, and 
those of an amethyst tinge would have passed the eye 
of a novice for the real stone. 



THE SERPENT. 

As I have had occasion in the course of this history 
to allude to serpents, serpent-mounds, the worship paid 
to serpents, and the various conflicts of dragons with the 
heavenly host, I think that I cannot close my remarks 
on these reptiles, without giving the following account 
of them taken from the Daily Telegraph of July 23, 
1883. 

" The new Reptile-house in the Zoological Gardens, Regent's 
Park, in London, will form the most splendid exposition of the 
serpent world that has ever been seen. Not only will it excel 
all previous collections in the number of the species that will 
there be on show, but the arrangements made for exhibiting 
each as far as possible under its natural conditions of life will 
be eminently instructive and picturesque. One snake will 
have sand and shingle, another rock and herbage ; some will 
have tanks of water, others large trees ; while all will enjoy a 
sub-tropical temperature and as much sun as the lofty glass- 
roofed and glass-sided building can admit. This illustration, 
from the life, of the ways and habits of the most terrible and 
yet most fascinating order of creatures, will go far towards 
dispelling the idea, so punctually insisted on by the poets, and 



414 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

widely accepted by the million, that snake-life is gloomy, 
horrific, and foul. The popular notion makes the serpent a 
thing of slime and darkness, the terror of desolate places, and 
an accompaniment of all scenes of natural horror — black 
creviced rocks and rotting vegetation, blistering sands or 
festering swamp. Tet how differently the lives of these 
splendid and powerful beings are passed ! What creatures 
revel in more exquisite vegetation of leaf and blossom than 
the boas, anacondas, and pythons? And do not snakes share 
with the fish their abodes in sea and river and lake ? Indeed, 
there is no family of wild life that traverses so completely 
every experience of enjoyment ; ranging as amphibians over 
all lands and waters and every condition of nature, from the 
bright arboreal life of monkeys to the sluggish pool-bed 
existence of eels, from the torrid fervour of the Libyan desert 
where the cerastes swelters, to the summer sunshine in which 
our own viper basks, coiled on soft banks of English moss. 
The snakes therefore enjoy all that Nature has to offer, and, 
following their prey, the harmless things of the world, into 
their pleasant and innocent haunts, the wild gardens of the 
earth, share with them the delights of running stream and 
flowery dells and deep-foliaged trees. It is an error, therefore, 
to suppose that they are the outlaws of creation, the wretched 
tenants of unwholesome corners of the world, rejected by all 
other creatures, perpetually creeping upon their bellies, and 
for ever blindly tracing upon the dust the hieroglyphic record 
of the original curse. 

"Where, too, shall we go for such awful significances of 
latent power, clothed in such surpassing beauty? In the 
Zoological Gardens can now be seen, in all the velvety sheen 
of its first splendour, a python that has just cast its skin, and 
the great snake is a very miracle of reptilian loveliness. Not 
even the birds of paradise can compare with its purples, blues, 
and gold, while an infinite interest underlies those iridescent 
charms, from the fact that its coils, soft as a butterfly's wing, 
and shot with colours like a dove's breast, can crush the life 
out of a strong man, can hold the tiger in its rage, and slowly 
squeeze it into pulp. Watch its breathing ; it is as gentle as 
a child's. And the beautiful lamia head rests like a crowning 
jewel upon the softly-heaving coils. Let danger threaten, 
however, and lightning is hardly quicker than the dart of those 
vengeful convolutions. The gleaming length rustles proudly 
into menace, and, instead of the voluptuous lazy thing of a 
moment ago, the python, with all its terrors complete, erects 
itself defiantly, thrilling, so it seems, with eager passion in 



THE SERPENT. 415 

every scale, and measuring in the air, with threatening head, 
the circle within which is death. Once let those recurved 
fangs strike home, and, though there is no poison in them, all 
hope is gone to the victim. Coil after coil is rapidly thrown 
round the struggling object, and then with slow but relentless 
pressure life is throttled out of every limb. No wonder that 
the world has always held the serpent in awe, and that nations 
should have worshipped, and still worship, this emblem of 
destruction and death. It is fate itself, swift as disaster, 
deliberate as retribution, incomprehensible as destiny. Gods 
and heroes alike held victory over the snake as the supreme 
criterion of valour. They graduated to divinity by slaying 
serpents. Indra and Yishnu conquer snakes, Hercules and 
St. George have their hydra, Apollo his python. It is over the 
body of Ladon, terrible progeny of a terrible parentage — 
Typhon its father and Echidna the dam — that the hero steps 
to gather the golden apples; and across the dead coils of 
Fafnir that Sigurd reaches out his hand to the treasures of 
Brunhild on the glistening heath. What more fearful in Orien- 
tal myth than Vritna, the endless thing, that the gods overcome, 
or Kalin&k, the black death; or Ahi, the throttler? Jason 
and Perseus, Feridun and Odin, claim triumph over the snake 
as their chiefest glories, and it would be tedious to recapitulate 
the multitude of myths through which ( the dire worm* has 
come down to our times, dignified and made awful by the 
honours and fears of the past. The python in the Zoological 
Gardens, however, though it may stand as the modern reality 
of the old-world fable of a gigantic snake that challenged the 
strength of gods to overcome it, presents to us only one side 
of snake nature. It possesses a surprising beauty and prodi- 
gious strength ; but it is not venomous. Probably the more 
subtle and fearful apprehensions of men originated really 
from the smaller and deadlier kinds, and were then by super- 
stition, poetry, and heraldry extended to the larger. The little 
basilisk, crowned king of the vipers ; ' the horned cerastes 
dire/ a few inches in length ; the tiny aspic, fatal as lightning 
and as swift ; and the fabled cockatrice, that a man might hold 
on his hand, first made the serpent-legend terrible ; their 
venom was afterwards transferred, and not unnaturally, to the 
larger species. It was the small worms, that carried in their 
minute fangs such rapid and ruthless death, which first struck 
fear into the minds of the ancients, and invested the snake 
with the mysterious and horrid attributes whereto antiquity, 
from China to Egypt, hastened to pay honour. Of the 
venomous snakes the Zoological Gardens present many very 
fearsome examples, and painful death, such as science is as yet

Araerca is their rival in the certainty and rapidity of the death 
that it inficts. It and the python, therefore, may take rank 
as the representatives of the two aspects of the snake idea in 
Xanxre. 

" In myth and folk-lore, however, the snake idea has also 
two aspects — the one diabolical, typifying a malignant dark- 
ness that is hurtful to man ; the other benigu. As the guar- 
dian of treasures it is the faithful servant of its master. Thus 
every country has its serpent which guards the all-important 
tree of immortality, and other secrets, and its dragonish thing 
that defends some priceless possession. The Greeks only fled 
from Athens when thev heard that the snake of Athens had 
deserted the Acropolis; and a few years ago the Nagas of 
India formally surrendered because their serpent-oracle had 
escaped from its priests. It is the universal guardian of the 
under-world, whether we look for it in the caverns of Shesh in 
Hindostan or under the ash Igdrasil in Norway. As being 
generally benign, we find it as Anantas, the infinite, lending 
itself to the gods to use its body as a rope, to be tied round 
the mountain Mem when thev churned the ocean ; as the 
beneficent rainbow of Africa, the ' feathered serpent* of South 
America, it taught men religion, and gave them the gift of 
wine ; as Boa, the third person of the Babylonian trinity, it 
befriends the penitent. In Madras it is a Brahmin ; in Bengal, 
as ' the ghost in the Phila tree/ it is propitious. Was it not 
a snake that fed the baby-prophet with honey from the violets 
among which Evadne, his mother, had abandoned him ? But, 
whether we find it benign or the reverse, the snake is always 
the emblem of wisdom. To eat its flesh imparted — so the 
ancients said, and so in some countries it is still believed — the 
knowledge of things occult to the world in general, an under- 
standing of the languages of birds and beasts, a science of 
astrology and of poisons, and, curiously enough, of perfumes. 
Thus Melarnpus, the soothsayer of Argos, acquired his pre- 
science from the snakes which he had befriended. So, too, 
according to one myth, Cassandra, and so also Tiresias. The 
Vedas attribute the origin of all knowledge to the serpent, 
and China retains it as the symbol of wisdom. A volume 
could hardly exhaust the snake-lore scattered up and down in 
the pages of history and fable/"

HADES AND THE MYTH OF PERSEPHON& 417 



HADES AND THE MYTH OP PERSEPHONE. 

" The myth which gives most clearly and fully the history 
of the earth through the changing year is to be found not so 
much in the legend of Adonis as in the legend of Persephonfi 
herself. 1 This story, as related in the Hymn to D6m&ter, tells 
us how the beautiful maiden (and in her relations to the upper 
world she is pre-eminently the maiden Kore) was playing with 
her companions on the flowery Nysian plain, when, far across 
the meadow, her eye caught the gleam of a narcissus flower. 
As she ran towards it alone, a fragrance which reached to the 
heaven and made the earth and sea laugh for gladness filled 
her with delight; but when she stretched out her arras to 
seize the stalk with its hundred flowers, the earth gaped, and 
before her stood the immortal horses bearing the car of the 
king Polydegmon, who placed her by his side. In vain the 
maiden cried aloud, and made her prayer to the son of Kronos; 
for Zeus was far away, receiving the prayers and offerings of 
men in his holy place, and there was none to hear save HecatS, 
who in her secret cave heard the wail of her agony, and Helios, 
the bright son of Hyperion, and one other — the loving mother, 
whose heart was pierced as with a sword, as the cry of her 
child reached her ears, a cry which echoed mournfully over 
hills, and vales, and waters. Then Demeter threw the dark 
veil over her shoulders, and hastened like a bird over land and 
sea, searching for her child. But neither god nor man could 
give her tidings until, with torch in hand, she reached the cave 
of Hecatfi, who knew only of the theft of the maiden, but could 
not tell whither she had gone. From Helios, whom she 
addresses as the All-seeing, Demet&r receives clearer tidings 
and a deeper sympathy, and now she learns that her child is 
the bride of Aidoneus, who reigns in the unseen land beneath 
the earth. The grief of the mourning mother is almost 
swallowed up in rage, as she leaves the home of the gods and 
wanders along the fields and by the cities of men, so changed 
in form and so closely veiled that none could know the beau- 
tiful queen, who had till then shed a charm of loveliness over 
all the wide world. At last she sat down by the wayside, near 
Eleusis, where the maidens of the city come to draw water 
from the fountain. Here, wheu questioned by the daughters 
of Keleos, the king, the mourner tells them that her name is 
D66, and that, having escaped from Cretan kidnappers, she 
seeks a refuge and a home, where she may nurse young 
children. Such a home the Mater Dolorosa finds in the house 

1 See vol. i, p. 40. 
vol. iv. 27 



418 HISTORY OF POWYS FADOG. 

of Keleos, which she enters, veiled from head to foot Not a 
word does she utter in answer to the kindly greetings of 
Metaneira, and the deep gloom is lessened only by the jests 
and sarcasms of IambS. When Metaneira offers her wine, she 
says that now she may not taste it, but asks for a draught of 
water mingled with flour and mint, and then takes charge of 
the new-born son of Keleos, whom she names Demophoon. 
Under her care the babe thrives marvellously, though he has 
no nourishment either of bread or of milk ; and in the house 
of Keleos she abode, mourning and grieving for the maiden, 
so that all things in the heaven above and the earth beneath 
felt the weight of her sorrow. In vain the plough turns np 
the soil, in vain was the barley seed scattered along the fur- 
rows. In Olympus itself there was only gloom and sadness, 
so that Zeus charged Iris to go and summon Demeter to the 
palace of the gods. But neither her words nor those of the 
deities who follow her avail to lessen her grief or to bend her 
will. The mourning mother will not leave the place of her 
exile till her eyes have looked upon her child once more. Then 
Hermes, at the bidding of Zeus, enters the dismal underworld, 
and Polydegmon 1 (Aidoneus) consents to the return of Perse- 
phonfi, who leaps with delight for the joy that is coming. 
Still he cannot altogether give up his bride, and Persephone 
finds that she has unwittingly eaten the pomegranate seed, and 
must come back to Aidoneus again. But even with this con- 
dition the joy of the meeting is scarcely lessened. A third 
part only of the year she must be queen in Hades; through all 
the other months she is to be once more the beautiful maiden 
who sported on the plains of Nysa. The wrath of Dfemetfir 
has departed with her grief, the air is filled with fragrance, 
and the corn-fields wave with the ripening grain." 



THE STUPEFYING NARCISSUS. 

" This narcissus, with its hundred flowers springing from a 
single stem, is that narcotic which lulls to sleep the vegetation 
of nature in the bright yet sad autumn days, when heaven and 
earth smile with the beauty of the dying year; and the myth 
necessarily chose the flower whose name denoted this dreamy 
lethargy. Even in her gloomy nether abode the character of 
the maiden is not wholly changed. She is still, as she was on 
earth, not the fierce queen who delights in death, but the

daughter yearning once more to be clasped in her mother's 
arms. 1 That mother is carefully nursing the child of Keleos, 
with the seed which grows without food or drink, except the 
nourishment of the dew, and the heat which still lurks in the 
bosom of the winter-smitten earth. But while she is engaged 
in this task, she is mourning still for the daughter who has 
been taken away from her, and the dreary time which passes 
before they meet again is the reign of the gloomy winter, which 
keeps the leaves off the trees and condemns the tillers of the 
soil to unwilling idleness. The sequel of the hymn simply 
depicts the joy of returning spring and summer, when the 
mourning mother is exalted in glory to the everlasting halls of 
Olympus. Hence, so far as the meaning of the myth is con- 
cerned, it matters little whether Demeter be herself the earth 
grieving for the lost treasures of summer, or the dawn-mother 
mourning for the desolation of the earth which she loves, which 
last explanation is preferred by Professor Max Miiller, who 
derives the name from the Sanscrit dyavamatar ; then Gaia 
stands to D£m6t6r in the relation of Nereus to Poseiddn, or 
Helios to Apolldn. Gaia is thus the actual soil from which 
the deadly narcissus springs, and therefore the accomplice of 
Polydegmfin, while D6m6t£r is the mysterious power which 
causes all living things to grow and ripen." 



ELYSION. 



" The Elysian plain was said to be far away in the west, where 
the sun goes down beyond the bounds of the earth, when Eds 
gladdens the close of day as she sheds her violet tints over the 
sky. The abodes of the blessed are golden islands sailing in a 
sea of blue, the burnished clouds floating in the pure ether. 
Grief and sorrow cannot approach them ; plague and sickness 
cannot touch them. The barks of the Phaiakians dread no 
disaster; and thus the blissful company gathered together in 
that far western land inherits a tearless eternity 2 . What spot 
or stain can be seen on the deep blue ocean, in which the 
islands of the blessed repose for ever ? What unseemly forms 
can mar the beauty of that golden home, lit by the radiance of 
a sun which can never go down ? Who, then, but the pure in 
heart, the truthful, the heroic, and the generous, can be 
suffered to tread the violet fields? And how shall they be 
tested, save by judges who can weigh the thoughts and

intents of the heart ? Thus ever? soul, as it drew near to that 
joyous land, was brought before the august tribunal of Minos, 
Rhadamanthvs, and Aiakos ; l and thev whose faith was in troth 
a quickening power might draw from the ordeal those golden 
lessons which Plato has pot into the month of Sokrates, while 
awaiting the return of the theoric ship from Delos. These, 
however, are the inferences of later thought The belief of 
earlier ages was content to picture to itself the meeting of 
Odysseus and Laertes in that blissful land, the forgiveness of 
old wrongs, the reconciliation of deadly feuds, as the hand of 
Hector is clasped in the hand of the hero who slew him. 
There, as the story ran, the lovely Helen, * pardoned and 
purified/ became the bride of the short-lived yet long-suffering 
Achilleus, even as Iole comforted the dying Heracles on earth, 
and Hebe became his solace in Olympus. But what is the 
meeting of Helen and Achilleus, of Iole, and H£be, and 
Heracles, but the return of the violet tints to greet the sun in 
the west, which had greeted him in the east in the morning." 
The idea was purely physical, yet it suggested the thoughts 
of trial, atonement, and purification ; and it is unnecessary to 
say that the human mind, having advanced thus far, most 
make its way still further." 



THE ASPHODEL MEADOWS. 

" To these islands of the blessed only they could be admitted 
who on earth had done great things, or who, for whatever 
reasons, might be counted among the good, noble, and heroic 
of mankind. But of the beings who crossed the fatal stream 
of Styx, the stream which makes men shudder, there would be 
some as far exceeding the common crowd in wickedness or 
presumption as these were unworthy to tread the Asphodel 
meadows of Elysion." 2

NEWTOWN HALL. 

Continued from p. 375. 

" As long as our Lady's Oak shall stand, 

The Pryces of Llanfair shall hold to their land ; 
When our Lady's Oak shall wither and fall, 
Let the Pryces of Llanfair look to their Hall. 

" Of this once flourishing oak, which was of great size, and stood on 
the left-hand side of the entrance-gates, there is scarcely a branch 
remaining, I believe, on the withered trunks ; but it is forty years 
since I last saw it. The above lines were told to me by a clergyman 
in the neighbourhood. The church of Llanfair, in Cydewaen, now 
called Newtown, is dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin, but my infor- 
mant was unable to say why the tree bore the name of our Lady's 
Oak. There was a large Catholic chapel in the house, which Mr. 
Evors converted into the dining-room, and I myself have seen the 
gold chalice and paten, which the priest used for Mass, amongst the 
rest of the plate on the side-board. The old mansion, in which King 
Charles I passed one night, was pulled down by Mr. Evors, with the 
exception of the small portion that now remains. 

" At one time or another the Pryces of Llanfair Ynghydewaen or 
Newtown Hall, had large estates in Brcconshire, Carmarthenshire, 
Berkshire, Wiltshire, Cheshire, Oxford, Flint, and Montgomeryshire, 
as also castles, manors, and lordships, in various counties — the pre- 
sent Newtown Hall estate being a mere nothing compared to its 
former extent — but in the course of the eighteenth century its suc- 
cessive owners squandered this fine property ; the park-fencing was 
broken down ; the deer sold ; and the Newtown estate, not in settle- 
ment, was sold under a decree of the Court of Chancery, and bought, 
with the exception of two lots, by the mortgagee, the Marquis of 
Buckingham. Eventually, however, the Rev. George Arthur Evors, 
a grandson in the female line of Sir John Powel Pryce, Bart., became 
possessed of what was left of the mansion and the park, which, after 
cutting down and selling the timber, he divided into farms. Mr. 
Evors, who died from an overdose of laudanum while on a visit to 
his nephew, Mr. Lade, in Kent, in 1844, left his estates, not, as was 
expected, to Mr. Lade, but to another nephew, the late Arthur Brisco,

Esq. This Utter died a bachelor and intestate in the lifetime of his

present owner, Wastal Brisco of Southcote, near Reading, Esq." 1

Translated Copt of the Latin Inscription on thb Monument 
of Henry Edmunds in Oriel College Chapel, Oxford. 

Here lies buried Henry Edmonds, Doctor of Law, of the county of 
Caernarvon. He was admitted to this Society a.d. 1727, not without 
a severe controversy, the memorable progress of which showed the 
talent of a most sagacious man, and its happy results strengthened 
the ordinances of the College. 

In the discovery of antiquities he manifested an industry which 
did not fail to hear fruit, and in matters of judgment he was of sin- 
gular acumen. 

By his counsels the citizens of Bristol secured their privileges. 

The Court of Arches expressed its admiration of him as an advo- 
cate, eminent on account of his reputation for integrity and know- 
ledge. 

By his exertions at the honourable command of the Royal Court of 
Admiralty, the scattered fragments of maritime law were collected 
from various treaties and collated together. 

For all things sacred he displayed a veneration both in his life and 
discourse, which was neither timid or feigned. 

In his friendships his trust and affection were implicit, nor did he 
turn from the path of prudence or honour. 

In the administration of affairs of all kinds his experience was of 
the highest order, and his zeal no less. 

Alas ! he paid more regard to the interests of his friends than to 
his own health. 

He died June 10th, a.d. 1746, aged 45. 

This monument was erected to his memory by the Fellows of Oriel 
College. By his will he left £1 Is. to each of the Fellows ; and his 
silver punch-bowl with his coat of arms, viz., Argent, a chevron sable, 
inter three Cornish choughs, ppr., each with an ermine spot in their 
beak, engraved on it, to his College of Oriel.

The remains of this palace, called Caer Brad wen and Llys Brad wen, 
are still to be seen in the township of Cregennan, and near them are 
the remains of a circle of upright stones. In the reign of Henry IV, 
Gruffydd ab Aaron, a descendant of Ednowain ab Brad wen, and 
ancestor of the Owens of Peniarth, now represented by the Wynnes 
of that place, entertained Owain Glyndyfrdwy, after his defeat by 
that monarch, and secreted him in a cave near Llangelynen Church, 
which from that circumstance has since been called Ogof Owain, or 
"Owain's Cave"; it is now almost choked up with sand (see vol. i, 
p. 210). At a place called Castell, now a farmhouse near Rh6s 
Wylofan, a great battle is said to have been fought at some remote 
period, and Wylofan means the " place of lamentation."

PREDESTINATION. 

I omitted in Vol. iii, p. 316, to give the following dogmas of the 
Anglican Church with those I have given of the Church of Scotland. 
They are to be found in the Book of Common Prayer, according to 
the use of the Church of England. 

In Article XI of that religion we are told that " We are accounted 
righteous before God only for the merit of our Lord and Saviour 
Jesus Christ by faith, and not for our own works or deserviugs." In 
Article XVII, it is stated that " Predestination to life is the ever- 
lasting purpose of God, whereby (before the foundations of the world 
were laid) he hath constantly decreed by his counsel secret to us, to 
deliver from curse and damnation those whom he hath chosen in 
Christ out of mankind, and to bring them by Christ to everlasting 
salvation, as vessels made to honour." (Compare this with the West- 
minster Confession of Faith, at pp. 315-316 in Vol. iii.) The XVIIIth 
Article declares that " They also are to be held accursed that presume 
to say, That every man shall be saved by the law or sect which he 
professeth, so that he be diligent to frame his life according to that 
law and the light of Nature. For Holy Scripture doth set out unto 
us only the name of Jesus Christ whereby men must be saved" (see 
also Deuteronomy, chap, xiii, vv. 6, 7, 8, 9, 10; and the Athanasian 
Creed, which tells us what the Catholic Faith is, " which faith", it 
declares, " except everyone do keep whole and undefiled : without 
doubt he shall perish everlastingly," and "which except a man believe 
faithfully he caunot be saved. Glory be to the Father, and to the 
Son, and to the Holy Ghost." I have given a few extracts from the 
Westminster Confession of Faith, in Vol. iii, p. 315, and from this 
and the Anglican Creed, which includes the creed of St. Athanasius, 
we learn who they are, whom, " before the foundations of the world 
were laid," Jehovah, the first person, or God the Father of the 
Christian Trinity, had in His secret counsel decreed to deliver "from 
sin and damnation, as vessels made to honour, and others he fore- 
ordained to everlasting death." The reader is requested to compare 
all this with what I have stated in Vol. i, p. 302, where God, with 
whom is no variableness, or shadow of turning, has declared that men 
shall be judged by their works, and if they have done good works, 
they will be saved by the merits of those works, and not by the 
merits of any other being, or their faith in the Christian creeds.
