According to Montgomeryshire Records No: MR/MI/23 - the Llanllwchaiarn Burial Register lists Jane as having been buried on 8th July. A feat indeed, as she died on 6 September - as noted on her headstone and in the Family Bible.
However, the headstone states she was 94 at her death, when in fact she must have been 93.
Death 6 Sep 1911 (age 93) Commercial House, Canal Basin, Llanllwchaiarn, Newtown, Montgomeryshire24,25
Jane's headstone states she was 94 at her death, when in fact she must have been 93. The otherwise incorrect Burial Record in the Parish Register states that she was 93.

Bible says:
Mother (Jane) Sept 6, 1911 aged 94 [so, a discrepancy regarding her age at death here, also]

Note on Husband: Morgan LEWIS (1) - shared note

"Morgan my son was born July 30th at four a clock in the morning 1789"

 

Llanwnog Parish Registers: (1817)

 

Morgan Lewis, bach., Jane Maurice, Sp., banns and consent of parents 6th May 1817 signed Morgan Lewis and x for Jane

Witnesses: Evan Morris, Evan Morgan

 

In the 1841 Census, Morgan and Jane were living at Fynnonycorn, Llanwnog, with their children Jane, David, Richard.

[HO107/1436/8/55]

 

Memorial in Llanwnog Churchyard:

 

In memory of Morgan Lewis late clerk of this Parish who died Dec 2nd 1843 age 54 years.

Also Jane his wife who died Jun 23 1869 age 82 years.

Christ died for us that wheather [sic] we wake or sleep we should live together with Him. 1 Thes.v. 10

Note on Husband: Morgan LEWIS (2)

Checking the Llanwnog parish registers, it would appear that Evan Morgan was a Parish Clerk, as was Morgan Lewis; Evan Morgan seems to witness marriages regularly, as does Morgan Lewis.

It would seem that Evan Morgan was the Parish Clerk up until about 1833, when he seems to have been succeded by Morgan Lewis.

Morgan Lewis's first apparent witnessing of a wedding at Llanwnog appears to be on the 19th April 1833. He continued to witness practically all of the weddings there until just before his death in 1843, so he would appear to have been Llanwnog's Parish Clrerk for at least ten years.

His last witnessing of a wedding at Llanwnog, prior to his death in December 1843 appears to be on 31st July 1843, at the marriage of Thomas Gravenor to Elizabeth Morgan.

The next wedding at Llanwnog was on 24th October; Morgan Lewis may have been ill by then

The next regular Parish Clerk appears to be Evan Kinsey.

Note on Husband: Morgan LEWIS (3)

In the Lewis/Roberts Family Bible of 1620 Morgan has made various scribblings such as:

 

"Morgan Lewis his hand and pen"

 

"Morgan Lewis his hand and pen he will

be good but the Lord knows when"35

Note on Husband: Morgan LEWIS (4)

In the Lewis/Roberts Family Bible of 1620 there are other various scribblings that I am unable to attribute - in the following case perhaps it is just as well!

 

At the end of Esther in the Apocrypha:

 

"John S Savage

 

John Savage

 

Cunt and Prick"36

Note on Husband: Morgan LEWIS (5)

In the Lewis / Roberts Family Bible of 1620 there is the following inscription:

 

"Thomas the son of Jeremiah Jones was born February 22nd in the year 1812 on Saturday at 4 o clock in the evening"

 

I have no idea at present as to whom this refers.37

This information is from a large Welsh Family Bible printed in London by Bonham Norton and John Bill. Printed by the printer who printed for the King. Anno Domini 1620.

There is no evidence to suggest who originally owned the Bible. The earliest reference inscribed within is to
"My father John Lewis [of Pantycrasdy] born August 1726"
Pantycrasdy is a farm near Llanwnog in Mongomeryshire, now Powis. It still exists, although the farmhouse is modern - i.e. not the building John Lewis would have known. The farm presently lies on a minor road that runs parallel to and north of the A470 between Carno and Clatter.
On the inside flyleaf there is the following:
"Thomas Morgan [indistinct - "his hand"?]
this his mi dook"
At the end of Leviticus is the following inscription:
"Leviticus his hand and
Elisaber Griffith her book
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13"
I have no idea who "Elisaber" could have been.
On the back flyleaf there are inscriptions from Thomas Wood and Richard Wood. No idea who they may have been.
The Bible appears to have remained with the Lewises and went from Morgan Lewis into the posession of his daughter Jane who married William Roberts of Newtown.
It went from Jane to her son Robert Morgan Roberts and then to his son Archibald Lewis Roberts.
Archie gave it to his niece Gwyneth, who gave it to her son Graham Hoadly.
Graham is the present owner - 29th July 2003.
The last few pages after Revelation chapter twenty are missing i.e. Chapters twenty to twenty-two inclusive.

With regard to the Wood family and the Morgan family:

Llanwnog Parish Registers have the following baptisms to a Thomas and Mary Wood of Llanwnog:

Mary Wood bap 1 April 1788
Richard Wood bap 1 Oct 1792
Thomas Wood bap 14 Jan 1795

A Thomas Wood married a Mary Jones in Llanwnog on 28 Aug 1786

Could these all be the same family, and is it they who inscribed the Bible?

Also a Thomas Morgan married a Mary Wood [possibly Mary Wood daughter of Thomas and Mary (nee Jones)] in Llanwnog on 17 May 1805

As it seems that the Lewises were writing in the bible as early as 1782, how did it happen that the Wood, Morhan and Griffith inscriptions appeared there as well as the reference to John Savage. Could these families be connected somehow with the Lewises?

26"Holy Bible" (printed 1620).
Text From Source: presently in the possession of Graham Hoadly.
This information is from a large Welsh Family Bible printed in London by Bonham Norton and John Bill. Printed by the printer who printed for the King. Anno Domini 1620.

There is no evidence to suggest who originally owned the Bible. The earliest reference inscribed within is to
"My father John Lewis [of Pantycrasdy] born August 1726"
Pantycrasdy is a farm near Llanwnog in Mongomeryshire, now Powis. It still exists, although the farmhouse is modern - i.e. not the building John Lewis would have known. The farm presently lies on a minor road that runs parallel to and north of the A470 between Carno and Clatter.
On the inside flyleaf there is the following:
"Thomas Morgan [indistinct - "his hand"?]
this his mi dook"
At the end of Leviticus is the following inscription:
"Leviticus his hand and
Elisaber Griffith her book
1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13"
I have no idea who "Elisaber" could have been.
On the back flyleaf there are inscriptions from Thomas Wood and Richard Wood. No idea who they may have been.
The Bible appears to have remained with the Lewises and went from Morgan Lewis into the posession of his daughter Jane who married William Roberts of Newtown.
It went from Jane to her son Robert Morgan Roberts and then to his son Archibald Lewis Roberts.
Archie gave it to his niece Gwyneth, who gave it to her son Graham Hoadly.
Graham is the present owner - 29th July 2003.
The last few pages after Revelation chapter twenty are missing i.e. Chapters twenty to twenty-two inclusive.

With regard to the Wood family and the Morgan family:

Llanwnog Parish Registers have the following baptisms to a Thomas and Mary Wood of Llanwnog:

Mary Wood bap 1 April 1788
Richard Wood bap 1 Oct 1792
Thomas Wood bap 14 Jan 1795

A Thomas Wood married a Mary Jones in Llanwnog on 28 Aug 1786

Could these all be the same family, and is it they who inscribed the Bible?

Also a Thomas Morgan married a Mary Wood [possibly Mary Wood daughter of Thomas and Mary (nee Jones)] in Llanwnog on 17 May 1805

As it seems that the Lewises were writing in the bible as early as 1782, how did it happen that the Wood, Morhan and Griffith inscriptions appeared there as well as the reference to John Savage. Could these families be connected somehow with the Lewises?
