Scope and content

A volume in the hand of J. H. Davies, with a few additions by Thomas Iorwerth Ellis, containing mainly pedigrees, extracts from wills and other documents, and notes relating to Cardiganshire families, with a few pedigrees of families from the counties of Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire (Charles, Phillips, and Wogan). T. I. Ellis's additions relate mainly to the pedigree of J. H. Davies's family and the connected families of Charles and Phillips. There are also extracts from Llanddewi Brefi parish registers, mainly relating to the Rowland family, and pedigrees and notes relating to the Rowland family (pp. 208-217), a list of Cardiganshire manors (pp. 45-7) and lists (pp. 122-142) of officials (beadles, etc.) of Cardiganshire manors, 1317-1444 (with gaps). The original title of the volume was 'Beirdd Ceredigion yn y Canol Oesoedd' but it contains transcripts of only two poems viz. 'Cywydd i ddioddefaint Christ (sic) ...' ('Y grog aur droediog drydoll') by Ieuan ap Rytherch ap Ieuan Llwyd, transcribed from BM Add. MSS 14866, and an 'awdl' in praise of Rhydderch ap Ieuan Llwyd 'o ywch ayronn' ('Dy annerch Rydderch vab rieddawg - hael') by Daio dy (sic), transcribed from BM Stowe MSS 959.
