Bangor University
Ty'n y Braich, Dinas Mawddwy Manuscripts

Reference code(s): GB 0222 BMSS TYB

Held at: Bangor University

Title: Ty'n y Braich, Dinas Mawddwy Manuscripts

Short Title: Ty'n y Braich, Dinas Mawddwy Manuscripts

Creation date(s): 18th century

Level of description: fonds

Extent: 2 items

Name of creator(s): Ty'n y Braich Family

CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The property known as Ty'n y Braich is located in Dinas Mawddwy in Merioneth. It is believed that the family who lived at Ty'n y Braich came originally from Llannerch Hudol in Montgomeryshire since there are numerous references to Guilsfield in these manuscripts.

CONTENT

Scope and content/abstract: Two manuscripts belonging to Ty'n y Braich in Dinas Mawddwy, Merioneth.
They contain an odd mixture of information.
The first consists of valentine rhymes, notes regarding matters in Shrewsbury and Guilsfield, medical advice and copies of legal documents such as an agreement between Mary John Williams of Llanbryn-mair and John Roberts of Darowen on their marriage, 1724.
The second is somewhat easier to decifer. It contains poems and carols by Huw Morus, John Richard and Hugh Jones, details regarding payment of Land Tax in Dinas Mawddwy, 1786, and is peppered with the names of Dinas Mawddwy inhabitants.
