Abstract of will
The will of Lewis Lloyd of Dol-clettwr, [p. Llangynfelyn, GR SN 6592], co. Card., gent. I commit my soul to Almighty God and my body to Christian burial. My debts are to be paid before any legacies. I give to my niece Anne Lloyd, daughter of my lately deceased sister Elizabeth Lloyd, £50 to be paid at the age of sixteen; to my aunt Elizabeth Price of London, an annuity for life of £4, to be paid at the same time as that given by my uncle; to the children of my deceased cousin Joane and Morrice Anwyl, £40 to be divided equally among them; to the children of Humphrey Price, £30; to the children of my cousin Catherin Price, £15; to my cousin Thomas Price, 20s.; to my cousin Humphrey Pugh of London, clerk, 30s.; to my nurse and foster father, £10; to their son William Richard, £10; to their daughter Mary Richard, £5; and for the payment of all these legacies, I charge all the real and personal estate devised to my executor. I give to my cousin Anne Lewis alias Jukes (after the decease of Algernon Lewis, her father), the messuages and lands called Pen-maen ycha [=?] in as large a manner as her father now enjoys them, and to the lawful issue of her body for ever, and in default to her right heirs for ever. In regard and pity of his many children, I give to my cousin Hugh Price for ever, the messuages and lands called Rhos-farth [=Rhos-farch, GR SH 695012] in p. Pennal, co. Mer., subject to the payment of such as ought to be paid to James Jones (lately of Aber-mad, co. Card., esq.), and subject to the payment of £100 to my executor within two years of my death. Likewise, because all the estate that I have came to me directly from my uncle Lewis Lewis, I give to my executor and successive overseers of the poor of p. Tywyn, the messuages and lands in Dolvolgraig issâ [=?] and Bwlch-Llanerchidiol [=?], worth about £7 or £8 a year, to the use of the poor of that part of p. Pennal called Parcell Isyravon, where I believe my uncle was born, to be distributed justly among the poor yearly without favour or partiality, but none to have a share but them that have lived in Parcell Isyravon for at least four months, and I earnestly recommend that my executor and the overseers settle this small charitable gift so that there be no disappointment, but that it may take good effect. My executor shall have three years after my death to pay these legacies. I make my brother Hugh Lloyd of Dole-y-clettwr, gent., my sole heir and executor; I give him all my lands and tenements not already devised; I give him all my interest and estate in the fee farm of Pennal called the King's lands [=?] with the fishing in the river Dyfi. Signed and sealed 27 Nov. 1691, in the presence of John Lloyd, Richard Hughs and John Richard.
Probate granted in the PCC, London, to Hugh Lloyd, the brother and executor named in the will, 6 Oct. 1692.
