The Welshman

Mae copïau "The Welshman" o 1845 ymlaen ar gael yn LlGC/NLW. Papur wythnosol ydoedd, yn adrodd ar ddigwyddidau yn y De-orllewin yn bennaf, sef Sir Aberteifi, Sir Caerfyrddin, Sir Benfro a Sir Forgannwg. Nid oedd llawer o dudalennau, felly nid oedd llawer ynddi am Langynfelyn, ond mae ambell sôn am ein plwyf ni. Dyma nhw hyd yn hyn:   Copies of the "The Welshman" from 1845 are available in LlGC/NLW. This was a weekly paper, covering the area of the south-west mainly, i.e. Cardiganshire, Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Glamorgan. There weren't many pages so there's not much in it about Llangynfelyn, but there is the occasional mention of our parish. Here is what we have so far:

11 April 1845


John Hughes, a boy, was found guilty of stealing, in company with another boy not in custody, on the 24th of November last, some sea-biscuits, lard and fish-hooks from a sloop called the "Eleanor" lying at the mouth of the Lery, opposite Aberdovey, the property of David Thomas, the master. It was attempted to prove that the prisoner was not in his right senses, but that defence failed. Sentenced to three months imprisonment.
