    1. [FRONGOCH-WALES] Translation of Welsh Wills
    2. I am willing to try to help to translate any Welsh wills relating to Frongoch families. I note that Nathaniel mentions that the wills of Cadwalader Evan and Owen Evan (sons of Evan Robert Lewis) are in Welsh . If he is referring to the will SA/1671/93 - this will is in fact written in English but difficult to read and understand. This will mentions the administrators as - Gayner vch John of Llanfawr , (widow. ) Thomas Hughes of Llangwm, Denbighshire (gentleman) David Ellis, Cyffdy, Bala,Merionethshire (gentleman) The goods and chattels are left to Gayner vch John Sealed and delivered in the presence of - John Jennings John Evans Pk? Roberts Signed - Gayner vch John Thomas Hughes David Ellis Note; T.A. Glenn in his book "Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania" claims that Gainor John was the wife of Owen ap Evan although the will does nort specifically say this . The will of Cadwalader Evan is SA1688/104 and is also written in English and a transcription of this will can also be found in "Welsh Founders of Pennsylvania" I hope this helps, Elfed Owen (UK)

    3. Elfed, Many thanks for your offer. That is most kind. Even if the wills can be found in English and in Glenn's book, not everyone has access, so it still may be of interest to have them posted here exactly as they appear. The wording of records so long ago is very interesting. Thank you. Emily If you do not hear from me in a timely manner, just write again...I was buried in email.
