Wow ! Thankyou Roger.I think that tells me all I want to know. Ive just looked online for the Chapel  and there are 2 Chapels..The English Wesleyan and the Tabernacale. Will investigate further and plan a visit. Next thing is to maybe find living family.
Thankyou everyone for your efforts..
Sheila.

I wondered if the presentation to the "Parch J Rees" might have been reported in the "Eurgrawn Wesleyaidd/Wesleyan Magazine", the Welsh language, monthly publication. Drawn a blank as yet but did spot

1854, Volume 46, issue No. 9 (September)
Part of the Establishments of the Wesleyan Ministers for 1854-55
Machynlleth John Rees
Ministers on the Machynlleth and Aberystwyth Circuits to exchange on two Sundays in every quarter

A year later, the September 1855 issue of "Eurgrawn Wesleyaidd" listing the Establishments has -

Machynleth John Lloyd

Llandeilo John Rees.

Just to check, is it "serchawgrwydd" rather than "sercharwydd" on the plaque?

Imagine my delight to find this series of posts re Rev John Rees who I have been researching as part of my family tree! 

Rev John Rees was the younger brother of my 3 x gr grandfather, Edward Rees who was the village schoolmaster and parish clerk in Llangurig, Montgomeryshire for over 30 years.  He is mentioned in the Blue Books too and the History of Llangurig and newspaper obituary.  They sound like quite a saintly pair of brothers...

I am not sure what they would have thought of my 2 x gr grandfather, also called Edward Rees, who was not only the landlord of a couple of pubs in raucously heavy-drinking Lampeter, (including the classy named Gin Palace,) but was in trouble for breaking licencing laws and went bankrupt!

Anyway - well done you Uncle John!  You were clearly highly regarded!!
