CONTENT

Scope and content/abstract: A manuscript containing an odd mix of poetry written in various hands over more than one generation, but most probably belonging to the 17th century.
The first three poems have a strong connection with the Gruffydd family of Llanddyfnan, Anglesey. John Gruffydd is the author of an elegy in Latin and an English epitaph to Lumley, wife of Pierce Lloyd of Lligwy who died in 1670. There is also a Welsh poem of praise by a John Vaughan of Meirion to Sion Gruffydd.
Several englynion by Dafydd ap Siencyn, Sir Hugh Roberts, Bishop Dewi, Rhys Wyn ap Cadwaladr and Watkin Clywedog.
A satirical Welsh poem to Dr Griffith Williams, Dean of Bangor and the Bishop of Ossory, Ireland.
The English compositions consist in the main of society verse, courtly songs and miscellaneous satire of the type prevalent in the early 17th century. There are several items of historical interest such as the elegy on Lord Stanhope who died at Christ Church Oxford in 1625, the elegy on the death of James I composed by Morley and on the death of the first child of Charles I.
