The 'London Gazette'

Y London, Belfast ac Edinburgh Gazettes yw'r papurau newyddion swyddogol cofnodi yn y Deyrnas Unedig. Sefydlwyd y London Gazette yn 1665. Yn ôl y cyfraith, rhaid cyhoeddi sawl math o hysbyseb cyfreithiol, gan gynnwys hysbysebion methdaliad, yn Y London, Belfast neu Edinburgh Gazette. (D.S. 'Does dim 'Cardiff Gazette!) Ar hyn o bryd mae HMSO yn rhoi popeth ar-lein (http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/) : hyd yn hyn dim ond yr 20fed ganrif wedi'i cyflawni. Gair i'r gall os ydych am chwilio yno eich hunan: mae'r rheolau arferol am sillafiad enwau lleoedd yn dilys, ond oherwydd system OCR sy'n cael ei defnyddio gan y system chwilio, gall fod llai na berffaith! Dyma sawl cyfeirad i'r plwyf rydym wedi darganfod hyd yn hyn:   The London, Edinburgh, and Belfast Gazettes are the official newspapers of record in the United Kingdom. The London Gazette was established in 1665. Several legal notices, including insolvency notices, are required by law to be published in the London, Belfast or Edinburgh Gazette. (N.B. There's no 'Cardiff Gazette!). HMSO is currently putting the whole thing on-line(http://www.gazettes-online.co.uk/): so far the 20th century has been digitised. A word of warning if you search for yourself: the usual rules about the spelling of place-names apply, but as the search system uses text from an OCR process it can be less than perfect. Here are some references to the parish that we have found so far:
