CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The farm of Dôl y Cae, in the parish of Tal-y-llyn, Merionethshire, was the property of the Pughe family during the late eighteenth century. In 1806, following the death of Rev. Rice Pughe of Nantglyn, Denbighshire, the land passed to his relative, William Owen (1759-1835), antiquary and poet. Owen took the name Pughe, and in 1816 he rented the land to his son, Aneurin Owen (1792-1851), later a prominent historian and Welsh scholar.
