The Cronicl is sent out to members three times a year, in early April, August and September. A good half of each Cronicl is made up of members contributions, which are always welcomed. If you have a story to tell, please send it in for our consideration: it doesn’t have to be perfectly presented or of any specific length. Every article received will be acknowledged. I look forward to hearing from you!
In the next few issues look out for the following subject matter:
Richard Morgan of Cerig-y-dwr, Trecastle
The story of a house: Pwll Uchaf in the Usk Valley.
‘Looking for the Sailor’ – an account of the life of Welshman James Penton.
The Evans family of The Held, near Brecon, ….. and several other fascinating articles to appear in due course
A snippet from Cronicl 105, taken from the Hereford Times, 2nd December 1854, “HORSE FAILURE DELAYS LOCAL MAIL”. The paper decried the fact that ‘Parry and his four-in-hand’ from the Gloucester and Brecon Mail had been replaced by a London Mail delivery which was apparently less than reliable!
IF YOU COULD SEE YOUR ANCESTORS. (Author unknown.)
If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row, would you be proud of them, or don’t you really know?
Some strange discoveries are made in climbing family trees; and some of them you know, do not particularly please.
If you could see your ancestors, all standing in a row, there might be some of them perhaps, you wouldn’t care to know.
But there’s another question which requires a different view…If you could ‘meet’ your ancestors, would they be proud of you?
