Thomas Griffiths Hughes

Thomas Griffiths Hughes

Thomas Griffiths Hughes nasceu em Stoke Newington em 8 de outubro de 1880, o quinto de seis filhos de Margaret e John Hughes. Seu pai tinha sido ferreiro em Flintshire, País de Gales. A família mudou-se para Londres por volta de 1870 e John Hughes encontrou trabalho fazendo grades de ferro.

Depois de deixar a escola, Tom Hughes encontrou trabalho como escriturário mercantil. Casou-se com Elizabeth Ellen Kershaw, uma empregada doméstica, em 1917. O casal teve três filhos: Muriel Hughes (29 de julho de 1914), Jack Hughes (11 de março de 1920) e Stella Hughes (5 de junho de 1926).

Durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial, Hughes serviu no Royal Army Medical Corps. O RAMC operava as unidades médicas do exército e fornecia destacamentos médicos para a infantaria, artilharia e outras unidades militares. Acredita-se que ele estava baseado em Cannock Chase, Staffordshire. Segundo sua esposa, ele passava grande parte do tempo em uma enfermaria de isolamento porque foi descoberto que ele era portador de difteria.

Após a guerra, a família mudou-se para Chingford. Tom Hughes trabalhou como guarda-livros e como vendedor no comércio de tecidos. Ele se aposentou em 1945.

Thomas Griffiths Hughes morreu em 12 de janeiro de 1954.

RG Nota: (morto **) indica que a fonte citada registra que este indivíduo matou, quando na verdade eles estavam entre os capturados pelos índios no The Blue Licks, conforme a Referência # 20, acima. Alguns deles morreram posteriormente no cativeiro, mas muitos escaparam ou foram mantidos pelos britânicos até serem comercializados ou libertados no final da guerra. Alguns foram & # 8220adotados & # 8221 pelos índios e permaneceram com eles, mesmo depois da guerra.

17 February 1793

Elizabeth, Ann’s sister, marries Thomas Morris of the parish of Llangadfan in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church, and moves to live in Parc Llysyn farm on the edge of Llangadfan parish, about five miles from Dolwar Fach.

24 March 1793

The christening of John, the son of Jane, Ann’s eldest sister, and her husband, Thomas Jones, a shopkeeper from Lanfyllin? Details in the 1851 Census and on his death certificate in 1855 suggest that John Jones was born sometime between May 1792 and March 1793, six years before his parent’s marriage. He may have been born in the Rhosybrithdir area, near Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant. It has not been possible to find a record of his christening. Could he be the Thomas, the illegitimate son of Jane Thomas, Llanfyllin, who was christened in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church on 24 March 1793?

13 May 1793

Ann is one of the official witnesses to the marriage in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church of David Thomas from the parish of Llanfair and Jane Hughes from the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.

31 January 1794

Jane Thomas, Ann’s mother, is buried in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa churchyard, aged 50. Ann was 17 years of age at the time.

1 March 1794

Birth of Ann, the daughter of ‘Thomas Maurice Park’ and his wife, Elizabeth (probably Ann’s sister). She was christened in Llangadfan parish church on the following day.

21 June 1794

The following entry is to be found in the Llangadfan Parish Register: ‘John the illegitimate son (as supposed) of Thomas Morris Park and Anne Evans his Concubine was born 21st. and baptised 22nd. of June 1794.’ A case was brought against both parties in the consistory court in July 1795 on a charge of adultery. This Thomas Morris was probably the husband of Elizabeth, Ann’s sister, and it is quite possible that he was the ‘Thomas Morris alias Jones junior’ from Llangadfan parish whose illegitimate daughter Ann, by Elizabeth Lewis of Garthbeibio parish, was christened in Garthbeibio parish church on 28 February 1787. The child was buried in Garbeibio churchyard on 28 September 1787, the day after a charge of licentiousness was brought against Thomas Morris and Elizabeth Lewis in the consistory court. David Thomas in his book, Ann Griffiths a’i Theulu (‘Ann Griffiths and her Family’ 1963), p.40, suggested that Elizabeth Morris and her father, John Evan Thomas, Dolwar Fach, had become estranged. Could it be that the ‘activities’ of Thomas Morris were responsible?

The Methodist, Edward Watkin, Llanidloes is assaulted while preaching in the open air in Llanfyllin.

Easter 1795

John Evan Thomas is elected one of the Churchwardens for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa and remains in office for two years, until Easter 1797. He also served as one of the Overseers of the Poor for the parish from Easter 1795 until Easter 1796.

21 May 1795

Birth of David Jones, the second child and eldest son of Elizabeth (Ann’s sister) and her husband, Thomas Morris. He was christened in Llangadfan parish church the following day.

Thomas Griffiths and his family begin attending Calvinistic Methodist meetings at Pant, in the parish of Guilsfield. His brother, Evan, was already a member of the seiat lá. Shortly afterwards the seiat relocates to their home, Cefn-du.

Ann writes her name and address on a page in a manuscript collection of poetry which had belonged to Harri Parri of Craig-y-gath, her father’s bardic teacher, but which had possibly become the property of her brother, Edward, in 1796. The manuscript is at the National Library of Wales (NLW, Cwrt Mawr 1491B).

Spring 1796

A powerful revival breaks out in Pontrobert. As a result the Methodist seiat gradually relocates from Pen-llys to Pontrobert during the years 1796-97. By the time the seiat moved to Pontrobert, Ann’s brother John had been elected an elder.

Easter Monday (?) 1796 (28 March)

Ann (aged almost 20) comes under conviction while listening to the Independent minister, Benjamin Jones (1756-1823) of Pwllheli, preaching in Llanfyllin. The summer of 1796 was wet and stormy, with much thunder and lightening by all accounts it seems also to have been a stormy period for Ann spiritually.

Easter 1796

John Evan Thomas finishes his term as an Overseer of the Poor for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.

Summer 1796

John Hughes, Pontrobert is converted and joins the Calvinistic Methodist seiat at Pen-llys.

Ann’s brother, Edward, experiences conversion and joins the Calvinistic Methodists.

Christmas 1796

Ann goes alone to the plygain service at Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church on Christmas morning, while her two brothers attend the Calvinistic Methodist service. The curate’s comments after the service cause her to turn her back on the Church and seek spiritual help elsewhere.

Ann joins the Calvinistic Methodist seiat at Pontrobert.

Easter 1797

John Evan Thomas finishes his term as Churchwarden for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.

5 December 1797

Birth of Gwen Jones, the third child of Elizabeth and Thomas Morris. She was christened in Llangadfan parish church the following day.

Calvinistic Methodist preachers begin holding meetings at Dolwar Fach.

Ann’s father joins the Calvinistic Methodists.

Ann writes a note in a copy of Benjamin Jones, Pwllheli’s book, Athrawiaeth y Drindod (‘The Doctrine of the Trinity’ 1793).

27 August 1798

Jane, Ann’s sister, and Thomas Jones, a shopkeeper from Lanfyllin, marry in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church.

17 November 1798

Edward, Ann’s brother, marries Elizabeth Savage in Llangynyw parish church, with Ann as one of the official witnesses. Elizabeth comes to live with her husband at Dolwar Fach.

John Hughes, Pontrobert lodges at Dolwar Fach for some months while teaching in one of Thomas Charles’s circulating schools in the area.

Easter 1799

John Evan Thomas is elected a Churchwarden for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa and remains in office for two years, until Easter 1801. The other churchwarden during this period was William Jones, Llaethbwlch. (Is this the William Jones, Llaethbwlch who was an exhorter in the Calvinistic Methodist seiat at Pontrobert? He was probably the brother of Ann’s brother-in-law, Thomas Jones the shopkeeper from Llanfyllin.)

16 April 1799

Publication of the first issue of Thomas Charles of Bala and Thomas Jones of Denbigh’s magazine, Trysorfa Ysprydol (‘Spiritual Treasury’). Five further issues of the first volume appeared, in June 1799, October 1799, January 1800, October 1800 and December 1801. There was then a gap until March 1809 before the appearance of the first issue of the second volume. John Hughes, Pontrobert owned a copy of the first volume of Trysorfa Ysprydol, and one can be certain that the family at Dolwar Fach would have eagerly awaited the appearance of each issue.

22 July 1799

John Davies is accepted as a missionary by the London Missionary Society.

27 October 1799

John, the son of Edward and Elizabeth Thomas, Dolwar Fach, is christened in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church.

Upper Chapel, Pontrobert is built for the Pontrobert Calvinistic Methodist seiat.

Spring (?) 1800

John Hughes, Pontrobert goes to the Dyfi Valley as a circulating school teacher. He appears to have taught in western Montgomeryshire, in the area between Cemais and Llanidloes, for the next four or five years.

3 March 1800

Birth of Jane, the fourth child of Elizabeth and Thomas Morris. She was christened in Llangadfan parish church two days later.

John Davies sends a letter to the seiat at Pontrobert from Portsmouth, a few days before he sets sail for Tahiti. A copy by John Hughes, Pontrobert is preserved in the National Library of Wales (NLW, C. M. Archives 5864).

15 November 1800

Harri Parri of Craig-y-gath, Ann’s father’s bardic teacher, is buried in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa churchyard.

28 November 1800

Ann’s first letter to John Hughes (Letter I). Copies of six other letters to John Hughes, Pontrobert are extant. Although only two are dated, all of them must have been written before her marriage in October 1804, since they are written in the name of ‘Ann Thomas’. There is reason to believe that they were all written between the end of November 1800 and the summer of 1802.

Thomas Griffiths (who was to become Ann’s husband) is received into membership in the Calvinistic Methodist seiat which met at his home, Cefn-du, in the parish of Guilsfield. He was aged 24 at the time and was soon elected an elder.

17 February 1801

Ann writes a letter to John Hughes (Letter II).

Edward, Ann’s brother, becomes tenant of Gwern Fawr, a small farm in the parish of Llangynyw near Pontrobert.

Easter 1801

John Evan Thomas finishes his term as a Churchwarden for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.

Ruth Evans is employed as a maid-servant at Dolwar Fach (probably to replace Edward’s wife).

12 May 1801

Ann is one of the official witnesses to the marriage in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church of Thomas Morris and Margaret Humphreys, both of the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.

30 March 1802

Birth of Thomas, the fifth child of Elizabeth and Thomas Morris. He was christened in Llangadfan parish church the following day.

Spring 1802

Four young men begin preaching with the Calvinistic Methodists in Montgomeryshire. All four were to become prominent figures in the Methodist movement in that county:

(i) John Hughes, Pontrobert (1775-1854)
Raised in dire poverty in the Braich-y-waun area to the north of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church, he was to become one of the most influential Calvinistic Methodist leaders in north Wales. He married Ruth Evans, the maid-servant of Dolwar Fach, in 1805. They spent almost the whole of their long married life in the small house attached to the Upper Chapel in Pontrobert. John Hughes is a key figure in the preservation of Ann’s hymns and letters, and his biographical essay, first published in 1846, is the single most important source of information on her life.

(ii) Evan Griffiths (1778-1839)
The brother of Thomas Griffiths, Ann’s husband. He was born in Rhos-fawr in the parish of Meifod on 12 March 1778. The family moved to Cefn-du in the parish of Guilsfield when he was eight years of age, but moved back to Ceunant in Meifod parish in 1804, where he spent the remainder of his life.

(iii) William Jones (1770-1837)
Born in Trawsfynydd in Merioneth and converted in London under the ministry of William Romaine, he moved in 1794 to the parish of Llanwrin in the Dyfi Valley upon marrying Susan Watkins, Mathafarn. In 1805 he moved to Dolyfonddu in the same parish, where he spent the remainder of his life.

(iv) Abraham Jones (1775-1840)
Born and raised in the parish of Trefeglwys, near Llanidloes, he moved to Radnorshire in 1805, moving to Llanfyllin on the occasion of his marriage, on 8 February 1807, to Jane Jones, a widow who kept a shop in that town. Jane was Ann’s eldest sister.

18 April 1802 (Easter Sunday morning)

John Hughes, Pontrobert preaches for the first time. This was at Llanidloes on the Sunday following the Monthly Meeting of the Calvinistic Methodists held there in April 1802. In a letter to him in that period (Letter VI), Ann rejoices in the fact that he has been allowed to begin preaching.

Easter 1802

John Evan Thomas is elected an Overseer of the Poor for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa and remains in office until Easter 1803.

Although 1805 is the date on the title page of the first volume of Thomas Charles of Bala’s influential Geiriadur Ysgrythurol (‘Scriptural Dictionary’), it had begun appearing in parts from about June 1802 onward. The first five parts (up to the word ‘Dannedd’) were published between summer 1802 and spring 1805, with the remainder appearing after Ann’s death. It is difficult to believe that she would not have turned frequently to those first five parts of the dictionary but the Geiriadur as a whole is a mirror of one of the most important influences on Ann, and is essential reading to fully appreciate her mind and work.

Ann begins to compose hymns.

Ann sends a letter to Elizabeth Evans, Bwlch Aeddan (Letter VIII). Bwlch Aeddan is a farm in the parish of Guilsfield in which Calvinistic Methodist meetings were held during this period. Elizabeth Evans was probably a maid-servant on that farm. It is generally believed that she was a sister of Ruth Evans, the maid-servant at Dolwar Fach. This letter is the only one to survive in Ann’s own hand. It is kept in the National Library of Wales (NLW 694D). Around the beginning of the twentieth century, H. Elvet Lewis (‘Elfed’ 1860-1953) noticed a watermark bearing the date 1801 in the paper on which the letter was written. It is unlikely therefore that the letter was written before 1802 and since it is signed ‘Ann Thomas’, it must have been written before she married in 1804.

14 December 1802

John Parry and Griffith Jones preach at Dolwar Fach in the evening, and experience a remarkable unction. The text of John Parry’s sermon was the Song of Solomon 5:10, ‘My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand’ (cf. Hymns XII and XIII). John Parry (1775-1846) was at the time a schoolmaster in Holyhead. He moved to Chester in 1806 and became an influential Calvinistic Methodist preacher and publisher. Griffith Jones was a weaver, and one of the earliest Methodist preachers in Caernarfonshire. The famous Methodist preacher, John Elias (1774-1841), worked for him as a weaver in his youth. Griffith Jones moved to the Bala area about 1802.

4 March 1803

John Hughes writes a letter to Ruth Evans. His copy of the letter is in the National Library of Wales (NLW, C. M. Archives 5863).

Easter 1803

John Evan Thomas finishes his term as an Overseer of the Poor for the parish of Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa.

27 May 1803

John Hughes writes a letter to Ruth Evans. His copy of the letter is in the National Library of Wales (NLW, C. M. Archives 5863).

28 May 1803

An application is sent to the Bishop’s Court at St Asaph to register Dolwar Fach as a place for public worship, signed by seven men ‘dissenting from the Church of England’, namely John Evan Thomas and his two sons, John and Edward, William Jones, John Griffiths, Thomas Morgan and John Thomley. The building was registered on 9 June 1803.

9 July 1803

John Hughes writes a letter to Ruth Evans from Berth-las, Trefeglwys. The letter is in the National Library of Wales (NLW, C. M. Archives 5869).

Shortly before his death John Evan Thomas copied a number of Ann’s hymns on to blank sheets which Jane, his daughter in Llanfyllin, had bound for that purpose with her copy of
J. R. Jones, Ramoth’s ‘hymn-book’. This may refer to a volume published by J. R. Jones in 1801, but it more likely refers to his Casgliad o Salmau a Hymnau (Chester: W. C. Jones, 1802). Some copies of this volume are dated 1803, which may mean that some appeared from the press in late 1802 and others in early 1803.

23 February 1804

John Evan Thomas is buried in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa churchyard, aged 67. His sudden death affected Ann deeply, causing a weakening in her constitution which lasted for the remainder of her life.

Thomas Griffiths and his family move to Ceunant, Meifod. Their home soon became a Methodist preaching station and was registered for public worship on 12 July 1804.

Publication of Talfyriad o Hanes Mr. Kicherer (Bala: Jones & Co.). Thomas Charles was probably its author, and it went to a second edition in the same year. The book gives an account of the missionary work of J. J. Kicherer on behalf of the London Missionary Society in southern Africa, including his work among the Hottentots and the Korana. It also includes an account of the establishment of the British and Foreign Bible Society in London on 7 March 1804, together with a reference to the usefulness of John Davies as a missionary in Tahiti. It was probably around the time of its publication that Ann wrote her ‘missionary hymn’, ‘Cenhadon hedd, mewn efengylaidd iaith’ (Hymn XXIV). John Hughes, Pontrobert, owned a copy of the book.

10 July 1804

Edward, the second child of Edward and Elizabeth Thomas, was christened in Llangynyw parish church.

1 October 1804

Birth of Ann, the sixth child of Elizabeth and Thomas Morris. She was christened on 6 October in Llangadfan parish church.

October 1804 (?)

John Hughes writes a letter to Ann Thomas. It is undated, but was probably written sometime between the Calvinistic Methodist association meeting held in Caernarfon at the end of September 1804 and Ann’s marriage on 10 October 1804. The letter is in the National Library of Wales (NLW 3292E).

October 1804

John Hughes writes a letter to Ruth Evans from Llanidloes. The letter is dated ‘October 1804’. It must have been written before Ann married on 10 October since it refers to her as ‘Ann Thomas’. The letter is in the National Library of Wales (NLW, C. M. Archives 5870).

10 October 1804

Marriage of Ann Thomas (aged 28) and Thomas Griffiths (who was five months younger than her) in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church.

7 November 1804

Thomas Jones, ‘Corner Shop’, Llanfyllin (Ann’s brother-in-law), is buried in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa churchyard.

13 November 1804

John Hughes writes a letter to Ruth Evans from Llanidloes. The letter is in the National Library of Wales (NLW 3292E).

Marriage of John Hughes and Ruth Evans in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa parish church, with Thomas and Ann Griffiths as official witnesses.

13 July 1805

Birth of Elizabeth, the daughter of Thomas and Ann Griffiths. She was christened the same day by Jenkin Lewis (1749-1805), minister of the Independent church at Llanfyllin.

31 July 1805

Elizabeth, the daughter of Thomas and Ann Griffiths, is buried in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa churchyard.

12 AUGUST 1805

ANN IS BURIED IN LLANFIHANGEL-YNG-NGWYNFA CHURCHYARD AGED 29

The following Sunday, John Hughes preached a funeral service for her, taking as his text, ‘For me to live is Christ, and to die is gain’ (Philippians 1:21).

Ann’s hymns are published in Casgliad o Hymnau (Bala: R. Saunderson, 1806), with a preface by Thomas Charles. The hymns were probably edited by him and Robert Jones (1745-1829), Rhos-lan. Some of the hymns also appeared about the same time in the second edition of Robert Jones’s hymn-book, Grawn-sypiau Canaan (Bala: R. Saunderson, 1805-06). 1805 is the date on the title page of this edition of Grawn-sypiau Canaan, but the date in the colophon at the end of the book is 1806.

Richard Davies becomes tenant of Dolwar Fach. (John Evan Thomas’s name remains on the Rent Books between 1804 and 1806 although he had died in February 1804.) The descendants of Richard Davies and his wife, Mary, still live in Dolwar Fach (although the present house was built after Ann's day).

Thomas Griffiths moves from Dolwar Fach to live with his mother and brother in Ceunant, Meifod, leaving John Thomas in Dolwar with the young married couple, Richard and Mary Davies.

3 January 1807

John Thomas, Ann’s brother, is buried in Llanfihangel-yng-Ngwynfa churchyard. He was the last of the family to live in Dolwar Fach.

8 April 1808

Thomas Griffiths dies of tuberculosis and is buried in Meifod churchyard on 12 April 1808.

História

The chapel was built by the Calvinistic Methodists around 1800, after a man called John Griffiths purchased the land from Matthew Lloyd of Rhospenbwa Farm, Pontrobert, in 1799. Two pieces of land were purchased at a cost of £14.45 each one adjoins the old building owned by Matthew Lloyd, and the other, according to the deeds, is surrounded by landholdings of the Earl of Powis and land once known as ‘Rhospenbwa Common’. The second piece of land would be used as a cemetery. On the fourteenth of November, 1801, John Griffiths made conveyance between the Calvinistic Methodists and seven trustees to transfer the land to the church authorities. One of the trustees was John Thomas, Dolwar Fach, elder brother of the hymn writer, Ann Griffiths, and the first of the family to convert to Methodism circa 1794. Interestingly, part of the wording of the act reads like this: – “The meeting house may be let from year to year to some honest, devout and religious person for keeping a school†.

John Hughes became a friend and father in faith to Ann Griffiths after coming to stay at Dolwar Fach while working as a teacher of the circulating school of Thomas Charles of Bala in the year 1800, and for the last five years of her life, the hymn writer worshipped at Hen Gapel, with many other keen youngsters of the Methodist revival in Montgomeryshire. John Hughes was a weaver by trade, but after he was ordained in 1814 by Thomas Charles, he settled with his wife, Ruth, (who was a maid at Dolwar Fach) in the house attached to the chapel, where they remained for forty years, bringing up six girls, and seeing major growth in the number of worshippers and elders. John Hughes also used the building as a school (using his ability and experience in teaching, with the encouragement of Thomas Charles.).

John Hughes died in 1854, and Ruth four years later. Both were buried in the cemetery opposite, (there is no record regarding the burial place of their daughters, all unmarried, but they are assumed to be in the same grave) and although the chapel was used for about a decade more, it was judged to be too small to hold the large number of the faithful of the time, and it was closed in 1865 when a new chapel was erected in the village centre near the famous bridge.

The Calvinistic Methodist Connection’s efforts to sell the chapel were not realised until the year 1927, when it was bought by the wheelwright who lived in the house next door, Pentre Ucha. The new owner changed the look of the chapel by installing large double doors to get his carts in and out. Because of a clause in the deeds, he had no right to move John Hughes’ pulpit, which belonged to the Connection, but the condition of which deteriorated bit by bit, along with the building.

It next belonged to a descendant of the wheelwright, a businessman based in London who had no interest in maintaining the building, and when it became known in the early 1980s that he wanted to sell it, a local committee was formed, with the Presbyterian minister as Secretary, to discuss the possibility of raising funds for its purchase through a national appeal. An article with a picture of the building and the pulpit in the community newspaper “Plu’r Gweunydd†in 1983 called for support for the proposal, and also explained the importance of keeping John Hughes’ pulpit ‘in situ’ rather than see it moved to St Fagans.

There was a strong response to the appeal, which enabled the committee to purchase the property for £10,000 and establish the Hen Gapel John Hughes Pontrobert Trust which would be responsible for seeking grants to restore the building and pulpit – designated as Grade II * by RCAHM Wales. The estimated renovation cost was £50,000, and it required grants from CADW and several other charities, as well as fundraising by the committee over twelve years to complete the work. A number of religious denominations contributed, with one very generous donation from the Independents of Liverpool, as well as smaller but highly welcome contributions from individuals and churches from all over Wales and beyond.

The chapel house was restored first and Nia Rhosier came to live there in 1993 as warden she had felt a call to the ministry and had the idea to establish a Centre for Christian Unity and Renewal, and in April 1995, the old chapel was opened in its new form with representatives of all denominations present. Talks were given by Dr. Geraint Gruffydd, Honorary President of the Appeal (in Welsh) and Canon A.M.Allchin, Bangor (in English), with oral and musical contributions by adults and children of the area. The place was packed as seventy managed to sit on the wooden chairs (donated by nearby villagers of Llanerfyl), with a hundred or more listening by loudspeaker in the yard.

As hundreds of tourists and pilgrims started visiting the Centre, the Trustees and the Steering Committee actively continued to raise money to build toilets beside the chapel, where there was a stable at the time of John Hughes, (the stone from which was used to fill the gap in the wall formed by the double doors, making the building look exactly as it was before the wheelwright tampered with it). It was possible to complete the toilets, garage and office by 1998, and the creation of the Peace Garden at the rear of the chapel, through voluntary labour, followed two years later.

As well as holding Christian witness through prayer meetings, occasional divine services, societies, workshops, etc. we have services at dawn on Christmas morning and a meeting or service on August 12 each year, ‘Ann Day’ in the calendar of the Church in Wales, and the date of her decease at Llanfihangel yng Ngwynfa in the year 1805. Welsh learners come here regularly to practice speaking the language, and a Welsh Reading Group is held bimonthly. Local associations, such as the Welsh Associations of Pontrobert and Meifod are welcome to hold meetings, and during the foot and mouth crisis in 2001, Quakers from Dolobran used to meet here on Sunday mornings because the ban on passing over agricultural land prevented them from attending their meeting house.

Unfortunately the roof has leaked for many years now, and we need to launch a new appeal for contributions to the cost of replacing it. But despite all this, the Centre continues to welcome pilgrims from far and wide, and we are very grateful for your support, past and present.


€˜The gift of this history’

John King was in his first year as education secretary when he got a call in 2016 from the University of Maryland Eastern Shore. The historically black college said it had discovered that his paternal grandmother, Estelle King, graduated from the school’s predecessor in 1894, before becoming a nurse. Would he want to give a speech at the school? Sure, he said.

The call prompted a dive into his family’s past. Last year, he enlisted the help of Christine McKay, a retired archivist from the Schomburg Center for Research in Black Culture who had once discovered Obama’s father’s letters, some of which he’d written from Kenya imploring universities in the United States for financial aid.

McKay wanted to know everything about the Kings. She started with John’s great-great-grandmother, Lydia King, who was born about 1822. She combed the records of the Freedman’s Bank — established after the Civil War for freed people — and found two of her accounts, suggesting she’d probably been enslaved. The records also listed the names of four of Lydia’s children: John, Sophia, Anne and Charles.

McKay consulted the Maryland State Archives, which keeps voluminous records chronicling the state’s history of slavery, which spanned from shortly after its Colonial founding in the 17th century to November 1864, when the state abolished it. (The Emancipation Proclamation of Jan. 1, 1863, freed enslaved people only in seceded states, exempting border states such as Maryland, where there were more than 87,000 enslaved blacks in 1860.) In her search, McKay found a slave census.

A Maryland clan traces its roots to slavery.

Many members of John B. King Jr.&rsquos family lived remarkable lives, including John B. King Sr., New York City&rsquos first black deputy schools chief Lt. Col. Haldane King, a Tuskegee Airman and William &ldquoDolly&rdquo King, one of the first black pro basketball players.
