CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The Tre'r gof estate in the parishes of Llanbadrig and Llanfechell, Anglesey, was held in the tenure of the Gray family in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. John Edward Griffith indicates in his Pedigrees of Anglesey and Caernarvonshire Families (1914) that this family was descended from John Gray of Shropshire, whose great grandson, Sir Hugh Gray was vicar of Llanbadrig, ca. 1546.
Later, in the nineteenth century Tre'r gof was held by the Broadhead family. The Broadheads also held property at Ffron ddu in the parish of Llanrhwydrys, Anglesey. Some family members who feature in this collection include, Richard Broadhead who was married to Martha, ca. 1801 and Catherine Broadhead, who died in 1819. Catherine's son and heir was a shareholder in Amlwch Shipping, in the mid 1820's.
