1695 Burial Record Wales
« on: Friday 31 July 20 04:42 BST (UK) »
Hi,
I found this record for a Hugh William buried in Dolgellau, Wales, on FindMyPast. It is dated 1695.

I think it states that Wm. Pugh (possibly his son) signed an affadavit that Hugh William was buried in wool according to Statute Law.

The section marked with the red line is unintelligible to me, and I would like some help!

Thanks once again!!

Made a start.......

I witness an Affidavit this 28th day of Aprill
made by Wm Pugh of this p(ar)ishe sealed  &
subscribed by Anne Caen (?) & Elizabeth Caen (?)
wittnessed & taken  before & subscribed
by Jo(h)n Caen Cl(ark)e (?) Min(ist)er of ? in this
County of Merionmeth that thabove regis
- tred Hugh Wm was buried in woollen
onely according to the statute in that
case made & provided

         
                              Maurice Jones Curate

Not convinced the place name is written ‘Dolgellau’.
‘Dalgllau’ possibly? though the ending looks more like ‘...llyn’
Can you see any other instances of this word in this hand?

Owen is the surname and probably Talyllyn in this County of Merioneth

Thank you Raybistre, Horseleydown86, goldie61 and all the others who viewed this request.

The experts at Rootschat are outstandingly helpful in helping people like me who are researching obscure clues to discover the identity of ancestors and their activities long ago.

In this case I am attempting to find a link between Ellis ap William ap Hugh of Llanfor, Merionethshire born 1590 who died in 1645 and Thomas Pugh, wife Elizabeth, who Christened a son Thomas in Breconshire 1714.

Elllis ap William ap Hugh left his farm to his wife Marrett John, according to a Bond shown at Rea-williams.com. One of the guarantors was Hugh William, possibly Ellis's brother.

It is a bit of a stretch to associate the Hugh William, an adult in 1645 with the Hugh William who was buried in Dolgellau in 1695, but his woolen shroud was apparently paid for by his son William Pugh. who just might have had a brother Thomas Pugh....

But Breconshire is a long way from Dolgllau Merionethshire!

When you are at a brick wall in your ancestry search, it is often necessary to grasp straws. Sometimes these straws keep the research afloat!

Many thanks to you all,
With best wishes
