Note on Husband: John LEWIS

The following appears inscribed in the Lewis / Roberts Family Bible of 1620:

 

"John Lewis is the onear of this Book

the Lord of heaven upon him look and when his pasin bel

doth tole the Lord of heaven Receive his soul

 

this was mad upon estar day in the of our Lord 1782"

 

It is conceivable, therefore that this could have been written by either John Lewis of Pantycrasdy born 1726, or his son John Lewis born circa June 1750.

 

Most likely John Lewis II born June 1750 as he has written the details of his children's births and christenings within the Bible.19

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.

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?

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?

Text From Source: "John Lewis is the onear of this Book
the Lord of heaven upon him look and when his pasin bel
doth tole the Lord of heaven Receive his soul

this was mad upon estar day in the of our Lord 1782"
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.
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.
