Re. the Welsh Journals on line I had only checked two - I hadn't checked "Y Dysgedydd crefyddol", Jan 1832 issue.
Confirms date of incident as Sunday, 11 Dec 1831 - when the family were on their way to Capel y Bont. Indeed, the article is headed "Warning to breakers of the Sabbath"!!

So probably looking for a nonconformist burial and check out if Capel y Bont records available.

Much more informative than the newspaper reports eg "... age 26, the handsomest and strongest in the Rhydlydan area ...."

Welshnewspapers on line   http://newspapers.library.wales

Put "hugh roberts" (not forgetting the all important "   ") in Search and use date slider bars to restrict search to 1831. Returns 7 hits.
Click on T COUNTY NEWS or No title to view report. The newspapers differ slightly as to date of incident.

elsh Journals online   https://journals.library.wales/search/advanced

Search for "bryn heilyn" - with a "y" and again wrapped in punctuation marks. Should return 6 hits.

"Vol 24: Cerrig y Drudion" - col 2 mentions "Bryn Heilyn". Also mentioned are "Llwyn Onn" and "Cernioge Mawr" - which confirms its the Bryn Heilyn you are interested in. I can provide a translation (if required).

"Mehefin 1881" mentions an "E Roberts, Bryn Heilyn, Rhydlydan"

The search key is "bryn heilin" - heilin with an "i" not a "y" and including the punctuation marks - important.
Without the punctuation marks it seaches for "bryn" and "heilin" as separate words. Bryn Heilyn (with a "y") and without the punctuation marks returns 16,292 hits!

"bryn heilin" should return 1 hit which names the owner of the farm.
