Note on Husband: Edward JONES - shared note

M I Inscription Manafon: (Could this be the same Edward Jones - father of Evan?)

 

Archie Roberts wrote he was Rector of Manafon - this would make him born 1796 and therefore 30 at the time of Evan's birth. If it is him, Eleanor wasn't buried with him - [but neither was Ann Roberts buried with Parchedig Robert Roberts]

 

"Er serchus goffadwriaeth am y Parchedig Edward Jones. A.C. Periglor y plwyf hwn. Ar ol hir was - / anaeth am 54 mlynedd yn ngwinllan ei Arglwydd, ymadawodd ar fichedd hon Tachwedd 4dd. 1880 yn 84 mlwydd oed."

 

Translation:

 

" In respectful memory of the Rev. Edward Jones, A.C. Periglor in this parish. After long service over 54 years in his Lord's vineyard he departed this life [assuming FICHEDD should read FUCHEDD] the 4th November 1880 aged 84."

 

Or

 

"In loving memory of the Reverend Mr Edward Jones, priest (incumbent) of this parish who, following long service of 54 years in the vineyard of his Lord, departed this life on the 4th November 1880 aged 84 years".

 

NOTE : the word fichedd relates specifically to a "good life"

Text From Source: GRAND BANQUET TO THE TENANTRY AT WYNNSTAY.
The gathering of over seven hundred tenants, on the invitation of their landlord, Sir Watkin William Wynn, Baronet, M.P., at Wynnstay, yesterday, was such as is seldom seen.
It stamped indelibly on the mind of the observer the fact that the feeling between Sir Watkin and his tenants is of no ordinary nature; but that it is undeniable in its sincerity and affectionate respect. Here was a compact mass of 700 tenants,. who had travelled that morning many weary miles to demonstrate their loyalty to the house of Wynnstay; and amongst those whose circumstances prevented their accepting the invitation their must have been many hearts that were sorrowing because of their inability to join their fellow tenants, and to swell the assembly that, with unalloyed enthusiasm, had met to greet a landlord whose hospitality is as unpretentious as it is unbounded, whose kind heartedness and generosity has ramifications with which few are wholly acquainted, whose bearing to those by whom he is regarded as chief is genial and unaffectedly familiar without lacking dignity; who is, in fact, the type of a thorough country nobleman, attached to his estate and those who live upon it, and beloved by all. When Sir Watkin's health recently gave way, the feeling of anxiety that possessed every class of society in this part of Wales was somewhat similar to that which was felt by the whole country when the heir-apparent to the throne was a short time since stricken down with fever. And the thankfulness that was expressed at the recovery of the Prince in Wales, was, though in a more limited area as heartfelt as that which characterised the nation when the Prince of Wales and his noble mother publicly returned to the Almiighty their gratitude for the mercies that had been vouchsafed. The ardent unanimity with which every section of society presented congratulatory addresses to Sir Watkin is still fresh in the memories of all, and we believe it was appreciated to the fullest extent by the hon. baronet. That such really was the case, was amply proved by the gathering of yesterday, when the majority of his tenants sat down to a splendid repast, that had been provided for them in Wynnstay park. The occasion was rendered additionally interesting by the knowledge that Sir Watkin is expected to be absent from his seat for some considerable time, as he is to sail for a six month's cruise in the Mediterranean in November; and consequently an opportunity was afforded of wishing Sir Watkin, his lady, and their family, a most hearty bon voyage.

Text From Source: DOLANOG SUDDEN DEATH.
On Monday, December 3, an inquest was held at the Vicarage, Dolanog, before W. A. Pughe, Esq., coroner, and a jury, of whom Mr. Rees Davies, Dolwar Hall, was foreman, on the body of Catherine Ann Rowlands, 67 years of age.
Richard Jones said he was the vicar of Dolanog parish. He identified the body as that of the deceased, who had resided with him for the last seven veeks. About ten o'clock on Saturday night, after a supper of oatmeal porridge, deceased went to her bed- room, but soon alarmed the family by cries of Oh Oh He ran into the room, and gave her some brandy and water, but without effect. He then ran to a neighbour, Evan Jones, a miller, who sent his servant for Dr. Evans, of Llanfair, who arrived about three o'clock. Deceased had then been dead about four hours. She was subject to rheumatism, but had not been attended by any doctor during her stay there.
Ann Jones said she was a servant in the employment of last witness. About ten o'clock on Saturday night, hearing a scream, she ran into the room of deceased, and found her just falling down. She took hold of her, put her on the bed, and called her master. She spoke a few words before she died.
Mary Jones said she was the wife of Evan Jones, of The Mill, Dolanog. About ten o'clock on Saturday Mr. Jones came to her house, and asked her to go to the Vicarage, and said that Mrs Rowlands will. When she (witness) reached the Vicarage deceased was nearly dead. She felt her pulse, but she appeared lifeless. The jury returned a verdict of Died by the visitation of God."
