KEY. 

A person is only given one number and it is used as the family heading of the 
person, as well as in numbering this person as offspring of the parents. This is the 
"Key" to the work. For example Thomas Yale No. 44, page 126, was son of 
Thomas Yale No. 29, page 123. All family and children numbers are in numer- 
ical order, so any number can be located at once. Records of persons received late 
or overlooked, have been numbered with the letter "A" preceding.

PREFACE. 



In compiling this work I have endeavored to present only definite 
and positive facts, based upon competent and proven authorities. I 
was intended that mere fiction and tradition should have no part in the 
events recorded herein, and the reader may be assured that the matter 
presented is authentic and founded entirely upon reliable historical, bi- 
ographical, genealogical and private records. 

I have kept well in mind the fact that the mere assumption, based 
upon tradition or like unreliable authority, of descent from or connec- 
tion with noted historical characters, should have no place in a work of 
this class, and the ancient genealogy of the Yales as presented herein 
is bereft of all suppositional matter and is a bare record of facts as es- 
tablished by anciently recorded pedigrees and reliable historical matter, 

The principal authorities consulted are: "The Welsh People" (1906). 
bj' John Rhys, M. A., Professor of Celtic in the Universit}^ of Oxford, and 
David Brynmor- Jones, member of Parliament, ''Burke's Peerage," 
"Burke's Lranded Gentry," "The Life of Owen Glyndwr," by Bradley, 
"Abbeys and Castles of England and Wales," "The Dictionary of 
National Biographies," "Country Townships of the Old Parish of Wrex- 
ham," by Alfred Neobard Palmer, and various Encyclopedias and 
Histories. 

Substantial and valuable special information was also supplied 
direct, by Mr. Alfred Neobard Palmer, of Wrexham, Wales, a recognized 
authority on Welsh pedigrees and family history, and by Mr. George F. 
C. Yale of Pwllheli, Wales, son of Wm. Corbet Yale- Jones-Parry of 
Plas yn Yale and Madryn Castle. 

The principal original sources of information pertaining to early 
Britain, of the authorities named, are the "Brut," a history of the British 
Princes, and "Annales Cambriae," both being of ancient Cymric origin.

4 PREFACE 

The sources of information for the genealogy of the Yales after their 
settlement in America were, "The YaleFamilj^" by Judge Elihu Yale, 
"The New Haven Historical Society Papers," the living Yales them- 
selves, and their descendants. 

I am however especiallj^ indebted to several ladies and gentlemen, 
who have unselfishly and loj'allj', rendered much valuable assistance, 
in supplj'ing records, information, etc., pertaining not only to their own 
branches, but to other branches as well; among whom are Miss Amelia 
Yale, Houseville N. Y.,Miss Charlotte Lilla Yale, Meriden Conn., Miss 
Fanny I. Yale, Hartford, Mrs. Madeline Yale-Wj'nne, Chicago, Mrs. 
C. C. King, Chicago, Mr. J. Hobart Yale, Meriden Conn., Mr. George H. 
Yale, Wallingford, Conn., Mr. William T. Yale, New York N. Y., Mr. 
Fred'k C. Yale, New York, N. Y., Mr. William Henry Yale, New York, 
N.Y.,Mr. Washington Yale, Minneapolis, Minn., Mr. F. B. Yale, Waco, 
Neb., Mr. D. E. Williams, Reno, Nev., Mr. Arthur Yale, Montreal, 
Canada, and Mr. M. B. Waterman, Buckley, Ills., and others I also 
wish to extend thanks to the large number of other members of the Yale 
family and descendants, who have unstintingly and carefully supplied 
the recoras pertaining to their own branches; and in connection with 
these acknowlegments, I regret that it is necessary to state, that I have 
found it impossible to procure from some of the Yale families, whose 
addresses I have, the required information regarding their ancestry, to 
enable me to enter their family records in this work; although I have 
made repeated and urgent requests. I also deeply regret that there are 
some few whose ancestry I have been unable to trace, even with their 
own aid, willingly extended. I mention these facts at this time, so that 
it may be understood that the author is not wholly responsible for the 
absence of such desirable and essential family records as may be 
lacking. 

As many of the early ancestors of the Yales were kings and princes 
of ancient Britain and Wales, and others prominent leaders of the Nor- 
mans in their conquest of the Principality', I concluded that the most 
practical way to record the events in the lives of these important per- 
sonages and present same in a connected manner and the order in which 
they appeared in the national life, was to write a brief history of ancient 
Britain and Wales. 

In fact the lives of these ancestors were so intertwined with the na- 



PREFACE 5 

tional life and constituted such an important part of it, that it would be 
impossible to write their biographies without also writing- a history of 
Wales; and it would likewise be impossible to write a history of Wales 
without writing their biographies. 

Individual biographies are presented of those ancient ancestors of 
prominence whose careers were not sufficiently connected with Welsh 
affairs so that the principal events of their lives could be told in con- 
nection therewith. 

The "Yale Pedigree" presented herein will make clear the various 
connections and the several lines of descent. The names are numbered 
and these numbers are also inserted in the history of Wales, in connec- 
tion with the names of the same persons, where they first appear, and 
in some instances the number is inserted successively with the name. 
Usually, however, the number is only inserted once, it being expected 
that the name will be recognized, as it successively appears in the nar- 
rative. The names of the ancestors in the History are all printed in 
capitals, to distinguish them from other names. 

The Pedigree numbers are also used in connection with the "Gen- 
ealogy of the Ancient Yales" and the biographies in connection with 
same. 

In reference to the family records, will state that sometimes dates 
given me by different members of a family for the same event would 
differ. In such cases I have used the date which seemed most likely 
correct. 

Where no names of children are given it does not always follow that 
there were no children, but it means, at least, that no record of children 
was sent to me. 

Addresses and dates of death, etc., are usually not given in the 
records of children, where the persons have individual family records in 
the book. 

Addresses given are the last known to the author. 

RODNKY HORACE YALE. 



INTRODUCTION. 



The family name "Yale" orig-inated in Wales and was formerly 
spelled "lal" and "Yal" and comes from the commote, hundred, or dis- 
trict of Yale, in Powys Fadog, Wales. The district of Yale, together 
with the adjoining district of Bromfield on the west, have formed since 
the end of the thirteenth century, a lordship, known as the lordship of 
Bromfield and Yale. Both Bromfield and Yale are in the county of 
Denbigh. 

The district of Yale is an upland plain bounded on all sides by hills 
and contains the old parishes of Llandysiles yn Yale, Bryn Eglwys, 
L/lanarmon yn Yale, Llandegla yn Yale and Llanrones. Each parish, 
except the last named, being divided into townships. 

The ancient Yales were descended from Osborn Fitz Gerald (Osbwrn 
Wyddel), of the country of Merioneth, Wales; and one of his descendents, 
Ellis ap Griffith, married Margaret, the heiress of Plas yn Yale, in the 
lordship of Bromfield and Yale; and in this way the estate of Plas yn 
Yale came into the familj% and the descendants of Ellis and Margaret 
later on definitely adopted the name Yale as a family surname; and 
with the exception of the Lloyds of Bodidris, with whom they were con- 
nected, were the most important family in Yale. Thus it will be seen 
that the name of Yale, as well as the estate of Plas yn Yale, were derived 
from the maternal side of the house. Dr. Thomas Yale, who died in 1577 
and who was Chancellor of Matthew Parker, Archbishop of Canterbury 
and grandson of Ellis ap. Griffith and his wife Margaret, was the first 
to definitely assume the surname of Yale; and his nephews, Thomas 
Yale and Dr. David Yale (Dr. David Lloyd), who were respectively the 
ancestors of the Yales of Plas yn Yale and of Plas Grono, continued the 
name. 

Surnames in Wales did not pass from father to son, in the way 



8 INTRODUCTION 

to which we are now accustomed, until the latter part of the sixteenth 
century, and the practice was not definitely settled for a long- time after- 
wards. Sons usually had for a surname, the g-iven name of the father; 
however they often assumed names derived from estates, castles, towns 
or districts; and as we have previously noted, the family name "Yale" 
was derived from the name of the district of Yale, in the lordship of 
Bromfield and Yale. 

The Yales, although natives of Wales, were of Italian and Norman, 
as well as British blood. There seems however to be no evidence of Sax- 
on stock in the ancestr3\ 

The first ancestor recorded in the pedigree, in the direct male line^ 
is Dominus Otho, a nobleman from Florence Italy (a Florentine); but he 
was not the only ancestor of Italian blood, as Cuneda, the head of the 
long- line of British king-s and princes, from whom the Yales are de- 
scended on the maternal side of the house, was no doubt partl}'^ of Rom- 
an parentage. 

The predominant strain in this ancient ancestry was however un- 
doubtedly British (Brythonic), as the maternal ancestors were nearly 
all , if not all, Welsh (British), except Alice de Montgomery, through 
whom came the connection with the Normans. 

As regards the personality and rank of these early ancestors, it can 
be properly stated that their political and social standing was on an 
equality with the great nobles and the rulers, of the times. There 
are but few, if any, families among the nobilitj' of any land, that can 
point to a more honorable and noble lineage, than that of the Yales; de- 
scended as they are from the ancient kings and princes of Britain and 
from the greatest of all the Norman lords, Roger de Montgomery, (who 
was of the same family as William the Conqueror), as well as from 
Maurice Fitz Gerald, the commander of the first expediton in the Norman 
conquest of Ireland. 

The antiquity of the Yale pedigree is equally eminent, dating back 
as it does, in the direct male line, to Dominus Otho, the Florentine noble, 
who came to England in 1057, nine j^ears before the Norman conquest; 
and on the maternal side to Cuneda, the first ruler of the Cymric nation, 
about the year 415 A. D. But few noble, or in fact Royal families, can 
claim greater antiquity. 

The pedigree presented herein will make clear, the connections re- 



INTRODUCTION 



f erred to, and it will be noted that the Yales are connected with the 
House of Cuneda and the succeeding King's and Princes, through three 
distinct maternal lines. One of these maternal ancestors being, Lowrie, 
daughter of Tudor Glyndwr (Tudor ap Griffith Vychan), and niece of 
the memorable Owen Glyndwr. Her great grandfather, Thomas ap 
Llewelyn, as will be noted, was also the ancestor of the five Tudor 
Kings and Queens of England, and the present King Edward VII, as 
well. 

Her grandfather Griffith Vychan, was descended also from the Kings 
and Princes of Wales and the Princes of Powys Fadog, who lived at 
Castle Dinas Bran. 

Another one of the three Welsh princesses referred to in the preceding 
paragraph was Nesta, the "Helen of Wales," who was not only great 
in herself and in her ancestry, but great in her posterity as well. 

The third maternal ancestor referred to was, Gladys, daughter of 
the Prince of North Wales. 

In referring to the pedigree and history of Wales, it will be seen that 
the ancestors of the Yales, among the Kings and Princes of Britain and 
Wales, were mainly the sovereign rulers. Attention is called to this fact, 
as there were many under kings and princes of minor importance, who 
ruled over smaller territories, which were parts of the whole and subject 
to the sovereign king or prince. 

In writing the foregoing particulars relative to the ancient ancestry 
of the Yales, I am sensibly aware of the prevalent practice among 
writers of works of this class, to endeavor to connect the family lineage 
with some noted historical character, whether justified in so doing by 
authentic records or not, and I realize that many are disposed to scoff at 
such claims; however I can do no less than follow the indisputable au- 
thorities bearing on the origin of the Yales and their ancestry and feel 
a sufficient justification in presenting the matter set forth, in the absolute 
knowledge that it is amply substantiated by competent and reliable 
records.

The above is a very ancient compila- 
tion and probably is a list of Goidelic 
Kings and Princes from Beli et Anna, to 
times contemporary with Cuneda and 
his more immediate descendants. It AviU 
be noted that Coyl hen (Coel Hen) (or 
Coel Godebog), the father of Cuneda's 
wife, has a place here. Dyfnwal Moel- 
mud (Dumngual Moilmut) the Cymric 
law maker, before the time of Howel Da, 
is also named in the pedigree. 

Other authorities state that Coel Hen 
(Coel Godebog) was a King of Britain. 



These pedigrees are of genuinely very ancient origin and in the opinion of eminent 
authorities, there is no reason at all to doubt their authenticity. Anna, the earliest of 
the line, is said to have been daughter of the Emperor of Rome. It is quite likely that 
the earlier portions of these pedigrees, however, are founded, at least partly, on tradi- 
tion. "Map" means "son of." 

These pedigrees are presented verbatim, as examples of the character of such docu- 
ments, from Cymric sources.

WALES. 



The Dominion or Principality of Wales may be described as a broad 
indented peninsula, situated in the Southwestern part of Great Britain. 
Its g-reatest leng^th from North to South is about 135 miles, and its breadth 
from East to West rang-es from 35 to 95 miles. It is bounded on the North 
by the Irish sea and the estuary of the Dee, on the West by St. George's 
Channel, on the South by the Bristol Channel and on the East by the 
English counties: Cheshire, Shropshire, Herfordshire, and Monmouth- 
shire. The present Eastern boundary was settled by Henry VIII. 

The counties of Wales are named as follows, with their Welsh equiv- 
alents. 

Anglesey. Ynys Mon. 

Carnarvonshire. Sir Gaernarfon. 

Denbigshire. Sir Dinbych. 

Flintshire. Sir Fflint. 

Merionethshire. Sir Feirionyd. 

Montgomeryshire. Sir Drefaldwyn. 

Becknockshire. Sir Frycheiniog. 

Cardiganshire. Sir Aberteifi. 

Carmarthenshire. Sir Gaerfyrdin. 

Glamorganshire. Sir Forgannwg. 

Pembrokeshire. Sir Benfro. 

Radnorshire. Sir Faesyfed. 

Monmouthshire. Sir Fynwy. 

The first six comprise what is generally termed North Wales, and 
the remainder South Wales. Their boundaries preserve to some extent 
the ancient divisions of the Principality. There are also two large 
country boroughs, Cardiff and Swansea. 

Monmouthshire is technically an English county, but is essentially 
Welsh in origin, language and customs. The thirteen counties are 
divided into "hundreds, " poor-law unions, highway districts, etc. The 



12 THE YALES AND WALES 

most ancient political divisions were Cantrefs and Cymwds. These land 
divisions, however, should not be confounded with the division of the 
"Cymric," land into small kingdoms or principalities, among- the regal 
or princely families. 

The g-eographical boundaries and divisions given by countries are, 
as indicated, those of the present day and of later times. The Wales, or 
Britain, of more ancient times, in the daj^s of the Romans and for several 
centuries thereafter, comprised a large part of what is now Great Britain. 
Extending from the Bristol Channel on the South, to the Clyde and the 
Forth on the North, including as well the South Western peninsula. 

Wales is quite mountainous, particularly in the North, where 
Snowdon, the culminating point of South Britain, rises to a height of 
3571 feet. It is rich in minerals, particularily copper, coal and iron. 
Has many beautiful lakes and numerous rivers, also many fertile valleys. 

The Welsh cherish their ancient Brythonic, or Cymric (Celtic) 
language, with great affection and it is quite generaly in use among 
the people at the present time. In 1891 there were 508,000 persons in 
Wales who habitually spoke only Welsh; 402,000 who spoke both Welsh 
and English, and 759,000 who spoke only English. 

In Welsh "C" has always the sound of "K. " however the present 
Welsh alphabet does not recognize "K". 

"G" never has the English sound of "J" or "dzh," as in John or James. 
"F" is sounded "V", but "V" is not included in the modern Welsh 
alphabet. 

"D" has the sound of "th" in the English words "this" and' 'that". 

*'L1" is a simple and single consonant. 

"R" is trilled as in Italian, and in "rh", it is a surd strengthened 
by the aspirate. 

"S" is never sounded "Z." 

"W" and "I" may be either vowels or consonants. 

"U" is sounded like "i" in the word "bit", and so sometimes is 
"Y." Thus "Gruff yd" or "Gruff ud" is sounded and spelled in 
English "Griffith." 

The literature of the Welsh is of considerable consequence and note? 
but the compositions of their Bards are the most celebrated and best 
known. These poetry making singers had an important part in the 
national life of ancient Wales. 



WALES 13 

The earliest laws of Wales, of which we have the most definite 
knowledge, were established and promulgated by Howel Da (Howel the 
Good), one of the ancient Kings of all Wales, about 942; and that they 
were good laws and loved by the people, is well evidenced by the fact that 
they remained in force throughout Wales, practically uninterruptedly, 
until the conquest of Edward I. in 1282, a period of 340 years, and in 
some sections for a much longer time. It is stated that Howel summoned 
four "laics" and two "clerics" from each cominote in his dominions, to 
meet at Ty Gwyn and that this assembly, under his direction and guid- 
ance, formed these laws. 

These codes deal first with the organization of the household of the 
King. Howel appointed the following servants of the court: 

Chief of the Household. 

Priest of the Household. 

Steward. 

Chief Falconer. 

Judge of the Court. 

Chief Groom. 

Page of the Chamber. 

Bard of the Household. 

Silentary. 

Chief Huntsman. 

Mead Brewer. 

Mediciner. 

Butler. 

Door Ward. 

Cook. 

Candle-bearer. 

Including eight officers of the queen: 

Steward. 

Priest. 

Chief Groom. 

Page of the Chamber. 

Handmaid. 

Doorward. 

Cook. 

Candle-bearer. 

The rights, privileges and duties of these officers were set out in 
great detail. The Chief of the Household was required to be of the 
royal blood. 



14 THE YALES AND WALES 

Besides these twent3'-four officers, there were eleven servants of the 
household, i.e.: 

Groom of the rein. 
Foot holder. 
Land Maer. 
Apparitor. 
Porter. 
Watchman. 
Woodman. 
Baking- woman. 
Smith of the Court. 
Chief of song. 
Laundress. 

There was also a "table of precedence," which went into much 
detail. 

The near relations of the king formed an exclusive, royal class. Next 
in rank were the nobles or "high men"; then the bonedigion, (gentlemen); 
and then the unfree persons; and finally a class of menial or domestic 
slaves, which of course was the lowest class of all. 

Courts were established by these laws, judges appointed and minute 
and detailed regulations were made, for thedutie«i, rights and privileges 
of the people and for the enactment of justice in all things and in all 
matters, according to the views and ideas of these ancient lawmakers, 
which were evidently wise and just in the eyes of the people, who fondly 
cherished the laws which they promulgated, for many centuries and 
fought numerous, desperate and bloody battles for their retention, as 
against the English laws, which their enemies sought to enforce upon 
them. 



HISTORY OF WALES 

AND 
The Kings and Princes. 



(Names of Ancestors of the Yales are in Capitals. Note the pedigree numbers.) 

Wales of to-day represents and for many centuries past has rep- 
resented, in its people, lang-uag-e and customs, what remains of ancient 
Britain and the Brittones or Britons (British). The British Isles (Great 
Britain and Ireland) were first peopled by an Aborig-inal race, perhaps 
the Picts, then came the Goidels in the sixth century before the Christian 
era, or before; a branch of the Celts of the Aryan race, who spread over 
perhaps most of what is now England, and Scotland, before they were 
pressed and attacked by the Brythons or Britons, who came in about the 
second century before Christ. The Brythons were another branch of the 
Celts, speaking- a different yet related language and having customs and 
usages not known to the Goidels. The language of the Goidelic, is 
represented at this time by the Gaelic of Ireland, of the Isle of Man and 
of Scotland, while the Brythonic is now represented by the Welsh. The 
British tribes called Silures, Dimetae and Ordovices were of Goidelic 
or Brythonic Stock. 

These early Celtic tribes had a long line of British Kings who were 
very important in their day, both before and after the coming of the 
Romans to Britain. Julius Csesar led the Romans in their first in- 
vasions in the years 55 and 54 B. C. and in the year 43 A. D., they began 
an aggressive campaign which resulted finally about the year 78 A. D. ? 
in Roman supremacj'^ throughout the greater part of Britain. The 
Romans governed the country and protected the inhabitants from other 
invaders in their accustomed aggressive way. They built, about the 



16 THE YALES AND WALES 

year 120 A. D., a wall from the Solway to the Tyne, called "Hadrian's 
Wall," after Emperor Hadrian; and about the year 143 his successor 
built a turf wall from the Clyde to the Forth, which was rebuilt in ma- 
sonary in 208 by the Emperor Severus. These walls were constructed 
for protection against the warlike tribes in the North. The civil ad- 
ministration of Roman Britain was practically subordinate to the mil- 
itary system. The head of the civil org^anization was called, Vicar of 
the Britannias ( Vicarius Britanniarum). The militar}' command was 
distributed as follows: the Count of Britain, who had command of a 
bod J' of troops not fixed to any particular locality; The General or Duke 
of Britain (Dux Britanniarum) or (Dux Britanniae) who had command 
of the troops on the Wall and in the country south of it to the Humber; 
and the Count of the Saxon Shore, who had charge of the south east part 
of the island, Britain was treated as a single Roman province until the 
3'ear 210. when Severus divided it into two, called Lower and Upper 
Britain. In 297, Diocletian divided it into four provinces and in 369 a 
fifth was made, called Valentia. 

The affairs of the Roman Empire required, finally, early in the fifth 
century, the support of all her legions at home, and in the year 410, the 
Roman troops and Roman authority were withdrawn from Britain and 
the Emperor of Rome concerned himself no more with the affairs of the 
island. 

After the departure of the Romans the inhabitants seem to have 
maintained a more or less successful resistance against the ravages of 
the Picts and Scots of the North, but according to the Saxon narrative, 
they were finally induced to seek the aid of the Saxons, to repel these fero- 
cious Northern neighbors, and three ships with 1600 men were sent to 
them under the command of the Saxon brothers Hengest and Horsa, 
about the year 449. A complete victory was soon obtained against the 
foe and then the Saxons turned their arms against the Britons; thus 
commencing the Saxon conquest of Britain, which was bitterly contested 
for more than 150 j^ears. The Saxons were aided by other Teutonic 
(German) tribes, the Angles (English) and Jutes, and finallj' in this 
period named, gained supremacy over all of Britain except Strathcl3'de, 
(a medieval British Kingdom comprising parts of Southwestern Scot- 
land and Northwestern England), Wales and West Wales, (Cornwall). 
The resistance of the Britons was determined, tenacious and heroic, bit-

terly contesting every foot and every inch to ttie last extremity, with a 
ferocious and aggressive foe, undoubtedly greatly superior in numbers 
as v^ell as in equipment. The Saxon conquest of Britain was different, 
or had different results, than that of any other conquest known to history. 
In other conquests a considerable portion of the conquered people have 
remained with the land and become assimilated by the conquerors, but 
with these Britons it was not so; when finally compelled to yield to the 
force of arms, practically the entire population left their homes and the 
land and retreated with their fighting men, leaving to the conquerors 
uninhabited and also, no doubt, devastated territory. These results 
of the struggle account for the fact that the population of England offers 
no evidence, generally speaking, of the assimilation of Celtic blood, 
while the population of Wales, to which the Britons were mainly finally 
driven, is predominately British (Celtic). The term "Brittones" yields 
in Welsh the name "Brython," a "Briton or Welshman." 

As before indicated, the portions of Britain as yet unconquered by 
the end of the sixth century, or about the year 600, comprised the entire 
western part of the island, from the river Clyde in Scotland, to the English 
Channel; this territory being represented by Strathclyde, afterwards 
called Cumbria, a Cymric (British) Kingdom, the Kingdom or Princi- 
pality of Wales and West Wales (now Cornwall); and as will be seen 
by reference to current maps, it comprised, in addition to all of Wales 
of the present day, and all of England on the Western and Southwestern 
coasts, a large part of Southwestern Scotland as well. 

This large remaining British territory was not however intact as late 
as the year 600, as the Britons of Cornwall, Devon, Somerset and Glouces- 
ter, had been permanently severed from the Britons of what is now 
Wales, by the Saxon victory at the battle of Deorham in the year 577. 

The desperate struggle continued, the Saxons, Engles (Angles, or 
Englishmen) and Jutes were met by courage and valor equal to their 
own, no territory was given up by the Briton or gained by the conqueror, 
until the price had been paid in the blood of the contestants. As each bit 
of ground was torn away by the stranger, the Briton sullenl}' withdrew 
from it, only to turn and fight doggedly for another. 

The next event of great historical importance was the battle of Chester 
in 616, (the date given by Saxon writers is 607, but 616 seems more likely 
correct, according to Celtic authority.) At this battle 2000 British monks, 



18 THE YALES AND WALES 

from Bansfor Icoed Monastry, who stood apart from their army, with ajms 
outstretched in prayer, were ruthlessly slaughtered by the Eng-lish or 
Saxons, under ^thelfrith. This victory of the English was complete, 
and by the fall of Chester, which stood at the juncture of the British 
Kingdoms of Wales and Cumbria, the Welsh were permanently cut off 
from their northern allies, and Britain as a single political bod 3'^ practi- 
cally^ ceased to exist; the British territories of Wale$, Cumbria and Corn- 
wall, having been permanentl3^ segregated from each other by conquest. 

Before proceeding further with the narrative it is best to deal briefly 
with the political organization of the Britons after the departure of the 
Romans. It seems likelj^ that they must have for a time endeavored to 
maintain the offices of authority to which they had been accustomed for 
several centuries under Roman domination; however, it is probable that 
the actual government was administered mainly by a number of sub- 
kings or princes, over their respective tribes. It is definitely known, 
however, that sometime after the Romans left, the Britons in the western 
portions of the island, comprising Cumbria, Wales and perhaps Cornwall 
and other sections, from the Clyde in the North to the English Channel on 
the South, organized themselves into some sort of a confederation known as 
the ' *Cjmir3^ " It is impossible to state when the national life of the Cym- 
ry began, but its inception was no doubt partly due to the assumption of 
the authority of the Brythons over theGoidels and partly to the necessity 
of organization of these two branches of Celts to withstand the encroach- 
ments of the Saxons, Angles and Jutes. At any rate they considered 
themselves collectively as one nation, from the time thej^ recognized the 
term Cj'mrj?^ and acknowledged the over-lordship of a king or ruler 
who was called the "Gwledig, " and w^hose office, or dignitj'-, was sooner 
or later known as the "Crown of Britain. ' ' The authority of the gwledig 
appears to have been partly based upon his claim to be the successor of 
the Roman officer called the Dux Britanniarum, and partly on earlier 
tribal notions of political and military organization. In time the terri- 
tory over which the confederation spread came to be called "Cymru" 
and the predominant language, ' 'Cymraeg. ' ' However the national terms 
were '^Britain" and "Britons," until the territory was finally reduced 
to the confines of Wales, and even much later; in fact until about 1135. 

The word Cymro means "compatriot" and also "Welshman;" the 
plural being "Cymr3\" 



HISTORY OF WALES 19 

As reg-ards the rulers or kings in Britain subsequent to Roman occu- 
pation, the names of Vortigern and King Arthur are prominent in the 
English histories; the former in connection with the Hengest and Horsa 
narrative and the latter in connection with heroic exploits pertaining to 
the struggles of his countrymen with the Teutonic tribes. The Celtic 
authorities do not seem to disclose anything especially definite as to the 
careers of either of these characters, as regards the parts they took in 
actual events, or the territory over which they ruled. 

In any event the earliest ruler of this British organization, or of the 
Cj-mry andof "Cymru" (theland of theCymry)of which there is distinct 
evidence from Cymric sources, was (A 1) Cuneda, whose name is well 
known to Welsh literature. In fact, the beginning of the history of the 
Cymric nation, as an independent political body, must be associated 
with the migration into North Wales of a Brythonic tribe, whose chief 
was this Cuneda Wledig, (the ruler) and who established his rule over 
Wales, and united the Celtic tribes of the west of Britain into a kind of 
confederation under his leadership. This was soon after the Romans 
left Britain, perhaps about the year 415 A. D., and before the beginning 
of the Saxon or Teutonic conquest of Britain. 

Cuneda was the son of ^tern (^ternus), who was son of Patern Pes- 
rut (Paternus of the Red Tunic). "The Red Tunic" probably had 
reference to the purple of office. Patern Pesrut was son of Tacit (Tacitus). 
Cuneda's ensign was a "Red Dragon," which came with the title of 
Dux Britanniae, from the Romans, and it was the standard of the rulers 
of Britain and Wales for many centuries after him. The title Dux 
Brittonum afterwards became Rex Brittonum, or king. His wife was 
daughter of Coel Hen (Coel Godebog), who was of the line of ancient Brit- 
ish Kings who ruled in Britain before the Romans came to the island. 
It seems certain that Cuneda's family w^ere Christains and perhaps 
partly of Roman descent. 

Cuneda and his sons were no doubt the founders of the British or 
Cymric Nation, which arose after the Romans left Britain, and the in- 
ception of this national confederation of the British tribes under one 
ruler, was no doubt partly due to the necessity of such an organization 
to combat the encroachments of the Teutonic tribes which began, as 
before stated, about 4+9. 

Cuneda had held after the departure of the Romans, the title and au- 



20 THE YALES AND WALES 

thority of the Dux Britanniae, and this office seems to have represented 
the predominant militarj^ authority in the island. He was in immediate 
command of the troops on the Roman wall after the Romans went away, 
but later, in response to appeals from North Wales, he marched there 
with his troops and expelled the Goidels and Scots from that territory, 
and organized a government, which sooner or later spread its authority 
over all of Wales and other portions of Western Britain, comprising- most 
if not all, of the western territorj^ from the English channel on the South 
to the River Clyde in the North. 

The authorityofCuNEDA as ruler (the "Crownof Britain") descended 
to his sons, and thus was founded a dynasty, which retained its sover- 
eignity until the death of Llewelyn in 1282, a period of nearly 900 years; 
becoming one of the very oldest Royal families of western Europe. The 
rule of the family of Cuneda no doubt continued over western Britain 
in the larger sense for a very long time, as his great great grandson 
(A5) Maelgwn, exercised sway over the whole of the country from the 
Firth of Forth to the Severn Sea, about the years 535 to 570, and the 
sovereignity of the family was not likely materially lessened until the 
battles of Doerham in 577 and of Chester in 616, and not finally reduced 
to the confines of Wales until the defeat and death of (A 10) King Cad- 
WALLON in 635 and in the defeat of his son (A 11) King Cadwaladr the 
Blessed in the year 664. Anyway, Maelgwn's son (A 6) Rhun, seems 
to have maintained the family prestige over the larger territory during 
his reign. Cadwaladr is said to have been the last Cymric King 
(King of the Britons) to wear the "Crown of Britain," and this is no 
doubt true as regards sovereignity over the Cymry of Britain out- 
side of Wales, for it is certain that after his defeat the authority of 
the descendents of Cuneda, as rulers, did not extend beyond the borders 
of Wales, for any settled period of time. King Cadwallon, the father of 
Cadwaladr, was great great great grandson of King Maelgwn (Mail- 
cun), and the latter was, as before stated, great great grandson of 
Cuneda. 

From the death of Cadwaladr in 664 to the death of GrufTyd ab 
Llewelyn in 1063, a period of about 400 years, the authentic history of 
Wales affords but few details pertaining to national events; the records 
seem to have preserved the names of a line of kings or princes, with only 
brief accounts of their deeds, consisting principally of battles and skir- 



HISTORY OF WALES 21 

mishes with their English and Danish foes, and between their own 
tribes. 

The Cymric nation in passing- to the sons of Cuneda, of whichThere 
were nine, (some authorities say twelve) was divided into a number of 
Kingdoms or principalities and the Kingdom of North Wales (Gwyned), 
seemed from the earliest organization to have had a sort of over-lordship 
over the others. The King of Gwyned was also the King of the Cymric 
nation, when the Cymry first emerged into history, and also when Cymru 
territory covered practically all of Western Britain, from the Clyde in 
present day Scotland in the North, to the English Channel on the South; 
as well as afterwards, when the land of Cymru had been reduced to 
the boundaries of Wales. Therefore it will doubtless be understood that 
Wales consisted of a number of small kingdoms or principalities, each 
of which had its King or Prince, subject in a way, to the over-lordship 
of the King of Gwyned, who was by inheritance, the King of the Cymry 
and therefore of Wales. All of these Welsh Kings and princes, from 
the greatest to the smallest, owed their authority to their descent from 
Cuneda, or by virtue of marriage to his descendants. 

The quarrels of the Welsh rulers were numerous and frequent, also 
oftentimes sanguinary and certainly continued; as there were doubtless 
but few years free from civil strife, during the long period from Cadwal- 
adr's death in the year 664, to the final extinction of Welsh independence 
in 1282, a stretch of 618 years. Who would say that there is not a prob- 
ability that Welsh independence might have continued to the present day, 
had it not been for this weakening civil strife. 

The ancient principal divisions of Wales were Gwyned, (North 
Wales) Powys (Mid-Wales), and South Wales (sometimes called Deheu- 
barth). These three principal divisions were also sub-divided into 
small principalities or kingdoms, such as Mon, Powys Fadog, Dyfed, 
Gwent and others, each having its own king or prince. All of the rulers 
of these principal divisions and sub-divisions being, as before stated, ac- 
cording to the ancient theory of the government of the Cymric nation, 
subject to the over-lordship of the King of Gwj'ned. This authority was 
sometimes almost absolute, or at least quite definite, and at other times 
quite nominal, being in fact known almost only in theory, for sundry 
periods. 

The Rulers of Gwj^ned immediately succeeding Cadwaladr were, 



22 THE YALES AND WALES 

according" to the most trustworthy evidence, successively, (A 12) Iutgual 
(also called Idwal Ywrch) who reig-ned until 720; (A 13) Rhodri Mol- 
WYNOG (called King- of the Britons), who died in 754; (A 14) Kynan or 
Cynon (called also Conan Tindaethwy) who died in 817; (A 15) Esyllht 
(or Etthil) a daughter of Cynon, who married Merfyn Frych and 
reig-ned until the year 841; and their son (A 16) Merfyn Frych (or Mer- 
min), who died in battle with the English in 844. Then came Rotri, or 
(A 17) Rhodri Maw^r, (Roderick the Great). "Mawr" means in En- 
glish "the Great." Rhodri was one of the greater rulers of Wales. 
He was the hereditary King of Gwyned, and in addition to whatever an- 
cient authority this position held, he also became through his wife, 
daughter of Meurig ab Dyinwa.!, King of Ceredigion, lord over part 
of South Wales, and through his grandmother Nest, ruler over Powys. 
He fought many battles with the Mercians and Danes, and in 877 he was 
slain in battle with the Saxons. He is said to have been absolute ruler 
over all of Wales and while he was descended from Cuneda, it is also 
stated in Burke's Landed Gentrj-, page 1328, of 1906, that he was de- 
scended from Coel Godebog, 75th British King, and Beli Bawr, sover- 
eign of Britain, and this is confirmed by the ancient pedigree herein, as 
well as by other authorities. After his death, three of his sons assumed 
authority over his possessions. His son (D18) Anarawd had >.'orth 
Wales, another son (A 18) Cadell, had South Wales and the third son 
Merfyn, had Powys. They were called ''the three diademed princes." 

Before continuing with the succession of events, it is best to state 
that Offa of Mercia, (King of one of the Saxon or English Kingdoms), in 
757 to 776 and later, engaged in fierce contests with the Welsh, and about 
776 built the famous Off^a's dyke, a wall of earth, from about the estuary 
of the Dee to the m^uth of the Wye; which was recognized for a time as 
the boundry line of Cymru. Also it is well to state at this time, that 
about the years 809-817, Ecgbrj^ht the Saxon King, subdued the Cymric 
Kingdom of Cornwall, which had been separated from the Cymry of 
Wales in 577, by the battle of Doerham. 

Returning to Rhodri's successors: Anarawd ruled in Gwyned for 
38 years. His palace was at Aberfraw, Anglesey. He died in 915 and 
was succeeded by his son (D 19) Idwal Voel, whose wife was his cousin 
Avandreg, daughter of Merfyn, King of Powys. Anarawd defeated 
the Saxons in a great battle near the Conway in 880. 



HISTORY OF WALES 23 

Cadell, King- of South Wales, or Deheubarth, whose palace was 
Castle Dinefwr or Dynevor, in Carmarthenshire, South Wales, died 
some years before his brother Anarawd, about 907, and was succeeded 
by his son (A 19) Howel, afterwards called (A 19) Howel Da, (Howel 
"the Good.") There is no record of Merfyn's descendants retaining- 
any claim to Powys. During the reigns of Idwal and Howel almost 
universal peace prevailed in Wales. Idwal was however killed in bat- 
tle with the English in 943 and his cousin Howel Da, became his suc- 
cessor, as King of Gwyned; thus becoming the ruler over both North 
and South Wales and the "King of the Britons"; or putting it in an- 
other way, King of Cymru. 

Howel Da was the law maker of Wales. The ancient Welsh laws 
were compiled by him and under his direction, about the years 942-950, 
He died in 950 after a long, peaceful and prosperous reign. He was a 
great and good king. His wife was Elen, daughter of loumare ab Hy- 
meid, King of Dyfed. 

Peace disappeared from Wales with the death of Howel Da, and 
for the next 113 years, until the death of Gruffyd ab Llewelyn in 1063, 
sanguinary strife with the English and Danes and between the Welsh 
princely families, was almost incessant. There was war at once be- 
tween (A 20) OwAiN, Dyfnwal, Rhodri and Edwyn, the sons of Howel, 
on one side, and leuaf and lagothe sons of Idwal Voel, on the other, for 
the possession of North Wales. Howel's sons were defeated at a battle 
at Carno in 950 and leuaf and lago assumed joint authority over Gwyned, 
setting aside the rights of an elder brother, (D 20), Meurig ab Idwal 
Voel, whom they blinded and imprisoned. The sons of Howel however 
again invaded Gwyned in 954, but were a second time defeated in a 
battle at Llanrwst by the sons of Idwal, who in return then invaded 
South Wales, but were driven back with great slaughter. 

Howel's four sons, as will be understood , succeeded to the Kingdom 
of Deheubarth (South Wales), but lost whatever rights they had in North 
Wales, by defeat in the battles mentioned. Dyfnwal, Rhodri and Edwyn 
soon died (about the years 951-953) and (A 20) Owain ab Howel reigned 
alone until his death in 987 or 989. Owain 's long reign of about 37 years 
was not especially eventful; there were the usual raids of the Danes to 
contend against and some conflicts with the English; also some raids 
conducted by his sons (A 21) Maredyd and (C 21) Eineon, for the ex- 



24 THE YALES AND WALES 

tension of territorj'. He was succeeded in Deheubarth bj'' his son (A 21) 
Maredyd ab Owain. 

. In Gwyned the brothers leuaf and lag-o had quarrelled and lag-o 
seized leuaf and caused him to be blinded and then hang^ed; but leuaf 
had a son Howel, who soon avenged his father's death by expelling- lago 
and taking possession of Gwyned himself in the year 972. lago was cap- 
tured by the Danes in 978 and nothing more is heard of him. This 
Howel ab leuaf, also called Howel Drwg^, (meaning Howel the Bad) soon 
had to contest for his kingdom with Kystenin orCystenin, a son of lago, 
who w^as aided by Godfrey, son of Harold of England; but Howel defeated 
them at Hirbarth, and Kystenin was slain. In 984 Howel was killed 
by the "Saxons through treachery," He left two sons, Maig, who was 
killed in 985, and Cadwallon, who took possession of Gwyned, but he 
also was almost immediately defeated and killed in battle by Maredyd ab 
Owain, King of Deheubarth. Thus again the Kingdoms of Deheubarth 
(South Wales) and Gwyned (North Wales) were united under one head; 
however Maredyd's rule over Gwyned seems to have been only nominal. 
It is stated that he also ruled in Powys by right of his mother, and he 
is placed by Caradog, an eminent Welsh authority, in the line of the 
kings or princes who ruled over all Wales. He was chiefly occupied in 
engagements with the Danes and in attacks on Gwyned and Morgannwg, 
and he fairly maintained in very disturbed times, the prestige of the 
house of Howel Da. He died a natural death in 998 or 999, leaving only 
one child, a daughter, (A 22) Angharad, who married LleweU-n ab 
Seisyllt, and also later on, Cynfyn. The former by right of his wife, 
assumed the government of Deheubarth. 

Returning to the affairs of Gwyned we find that{D 21) Idw^al a son of 
Meurig, who was a son of Idwal Voel and brother of leuaf and lago, 
had returned in 992 and claimed the Kingdom from Maredyd ab Owajn, 
and was successful in a battle with Maredyd's sons in 993, whereby he 
wrested Maredyd's authority in North Wales from him and became king 
of that domain. He did not enjoy his success long, however, for he was 
killed, supposedl}^ by the Danes, in 995. He left a young son (D 22) Iago 
who was put aside for a time, but many years later finally became ruler 
over Gwyned. 

Following the death of (D 21) Idwal ab Meurig, Cynan ab Howel 
and Aedan ab Blegored, also others, aspired to the rule of Gwyned. 



HISTORY OF WALES 25 

Cynan was killed in battle in 1003 and Aedan and his four sons were 
killed in 1016 in a fight with Llewelyn abSeisyllt, who as we have seen, 
was King- of Deheubarth; and thus again these two kingdoms were brought 
under one ruler. With the reign of Llewelyn began a fresh growth of 
Cymric power, which attained its greatest development in the reign of 
his son Gruffyd ab Llewelyn. The English and Danes, who had har- 
rassed the Welsh for so many of the preceding years, were very busy 
with their own affairs in England at this time and the Cymry were there- 
fore afforded some relief from their attacks, for a considerable period. 

Furthermore, during this period, in 1016, Cnut the Dane, became 
King of England and he wisely exerted himself to promote trade and 
manufacturing, rather than war, and the incursions of the Danish 
marauders from the sea ceased entirely. 

It is stated that Llewelyn also ruled over Powys, but it is not posi- 
tively certain that he did, at any rate he was the ruler of both Gwyned 
and Deheubarth for a number of years, with great credit to himself, and 
during a period of prosperity among his people. There were two re- 
bellions in South Wales during his reign, in 1019 and 1020, both of which 
were promptly subdued. Llewelyn died in 1023 at the height of his 
power. He left a son, Gruffyd, who took an important part in affairs 
later, but during the earlier years after Llewel3^n's death, Iago the son 
of Idwal ab Meurig, mentioned in a preceding paragraph, became ruler 
over Gwyned, and Deheubarth was siezed by Rhyderch ab lestyn. The 
latter was slain by Irish-Scots in 1031 or 1033 and Howel and Maredyd, 
sons of Edwin, who was son of Eineon, a grandson of Howel Da, took 
his place, and although the sons of Rhyderch revolted and a battle was 
fought a year later at Hiraethwy, the}^ retained the kingdom. Meredyd 
however was soon afterwards killed in an obscure conflict, and Howel 
was left in sole possession of Deheubarth. 

Some six years after these events, in the j'^ear 1037, Gruffyd ab 
Llewelyn, the young son of Llewelyn ab Seisyllt, who had however 
reached manhood, asserted his rights and attacked Iago, King of Gwyned, 
and slew him and seized his kingdom; this attack, however, seems to have 
been incited by Iago having given protection to one lestyn ab Gwrgant, 
who had ravished Arden, Gruffyd's cousin, a daughter of Robert ab 
Seisyllt, and then fled to him. Gruffyd immediately supplemented his 
assumption of rule over Gwyned with other aggressive campaigns and the 



26 THE YALES AND WALES 

C^'mry suddenly developed, under his leadership, a military capacity' and 
power which had not been displaj^ed for centuries; and during" his reign 
reached greater strength than had before been attained since Cadwaladr. 
He united the forces of Wales under his leadership, after having- brought 
the other Welsh Kingdoms under his rule, and became a factor of con- 
siderable importance in the affairs of the whole island, and a dangerous 
and powerful foe to the King of England. He led several campaigns 
into England; the first was into Mercia in 1039, where he defeated the 
English in a battle at Rhj^d-j'-Groes on the Severn, in which Edwine, 
brother of Earl Leofric of Mercia, was slain. Afterwards he formed an 
alliance with Earl Leofric and married his granddaughter, Ealdgyth, 
daughter of his son .^Ifgar, who in later years became the wife of 
Harold II. of England. 

Gruffyd was on friendly terms with Edward the Confessor, King of 
England, and secured from him a grant of all the lands west of the Dee, 
that had formerly been possessed by the English. 

In 1052 he again invaded England and fought a battle with "the 
landsmen as well as the Frenchmen of the Castle" in Hereford near 
Leominster, inflicting considerable loss on his enemies. 

In 1055 his father-in-law, ^Ifgar, Earl of Mercia, was outlawed and 
fled to Ireland, returning to Gruff yd in Wales with a fleet of eighteen 
ships, they invaded England at the head of a great force, de- 
feated the English under Ralph the Earl, near Hereford, with great 
slaughter. Then took and burned Hereford and slew the priests who 
were in the church, retiring with much booty. Harold's son Godwine, 
was then made Earl in Ralph's place and a great English army was 
gathered; but Gruifyd evaded a conflict. Negotiations were then taken 
up between Harold and ^Ifgar and Gruff^^d. ^-Elfgar was in-lawed as 
Earl and Gruffyd gave up the lands West of the Dee, previously granted 
to him. 

There was again some fighting between Grufl'^^d and the English 
in 1058, but in the main he remained quiet until after the death of ^^Ifgar 
about 1062. It seems he must have given the English some trouble in the 
latter part of 1062, for Harold, (who in 1066 became the King of England), 
decided it seems, to attempt to crush this dangerous and formidable enemy. 
He attacked the chief palace of Gruffyd at Rhuddlan, near the end 



HISTORY OF WALES 27 

1062; Gruffyd escaped by sea and Harold burned the place, with the re- 
maining" ships. 

This event had an unfavorable effect upon Gruffyd's power and 
prestige, especially in South Wales; and it is evident that he had many 
enemies among the Welsh, who regarded him as an oppressor and tyrant. 

Harold followed up his first success and in conjunction with his 
brother Tostig planned a campaign by both land and sea, Harold tak- 
ing command of the fleet and Tostig of the land forces, They began 
this vigorous campaign early in the summer of 1063. The fleet left 
Bristol and sailed along the coast, landing at points where damage 
could be inflicted. The English land forces gave up their armour and 
fought much after the same fashion as the Welsh. No quarter was given 
and the fighting, while of the guerilla kind, was desperate and furious. 
The Welsh finally made a truce with Harold, and Gruffyd, it is stated 
by the chronicler, was slain in August 1063 by Welshmen, because "of the 
war he waged with Harold the Earl." It is al?o stated that the Welsh 
sentenced him to deposition. 

Harold had been ruthless in his campaign against Gruffyd, but as 
soon as he had been disposed of he procceeded to dispose of the kingdom, 
by dividing it between two native Princes of Wales, who were half 
brothers of Gruffyd: (A 23) Bledyn ab Cynfyn and (B 23) Rhiwallon 
AB Cynfyn; however considerable portions, in the Vale of Clwyd, a 
part of Radnorshire, and a portion of Gwent, became from this time 
English possessions. 

As stated, Gruffyd ab Llewelyn ab Seisyllt, who was defeated and 
slain in Harold's campaign, was a half brother of Bledyn and Rhi- 
wallon, who succeeded to his kingdom. Their mother was Angharad, 
daughter of Maredyd ab Owain, (King of Wales) who first married 
Llewelyn ab Seisyllt and later also married Cynfyn. 

The Battle of Senlac, or Hastings, in England, on Oct. 14, 1066, was 
an event of far reaching and widespread importance to England, and 
through the great changes which were wrought in the political and mil- 
itary affairs of England, by this decisive victory of the Normans under 
William the Conqueror, over the English, its results finally had great 
effect on the affairs of Wales. However, the Welsh and those who trace 
their ancestry to Welsh families, have good reason to note with pride, 
that while the Normans conquered England at almost a single stroke 



28 THE YALES AND WALES 

and practically by a sing-le battle, it took them two hundred and sixteen 
years to conquer Wales; and it seems very likely they would not have 
succeeded even at the end of that long- stretch of years, covering- as it 
did, nearlj^ two and one-fourth centuries, had they relied solely on mil- 
itary operations. The process finally adopted by the Normans for the 
subjugation of Wales was, both militarj^ and economic. It consisted of 
militarj^ campaigns of conquest, the building of strong castles for the 
quartering of garrisons within the territory, and the permanent settle- 
ment of their people on the lands adjacent to and protected by the castles ; 
also the inter-marriages of some of the Norman leaders, with members 
of the princely families of Wales, doubtless had some effect on the 
progress of events. There were so many castles built by the Normans 
and their followers that Wales finally became known as "the land of 
castles." 

Harold, the English king who fell at the battle of Hastings, was the 
same Harold who had defeated Gruffyd ab Llewel^^n, as we have seen, 
in 1063, and the Welsh were probably, in g-eneral, pleased over his fall; 
however, they found later that the Normans were no better friends 
than he. 

Prior to the ''Norman conquest" Wales had remained as a whole 
almost intact, and subject only, to the authority of the native kings and 
princes. It is true some fragments of Mid- Wales (Powys), had been 
wrested away by the English or Saxons, but in 1066 it was practically 
the same Wales, territorially and politically, that Roderick the Great 
(Rhodri Mawr) ruled over in 844. During this long interval there were 
several Welsh king-s and princes who paid personal homage to the Saxon 
or English Kings and acknowledged their political superiority, for 
defensive purposes during the Danish incursions, and doubtless for other 
reasons, growing out of the wars between the rulers of England and the 
rulers of Wales; but at no time did these foreign kings have anything 
w^hatever to do with the government of Wales, or with its affairs as a 
separate and independent nation. Its independence as a nation had in 
no way been abridged, prior to 1066; except possibly by the victory of 
Harold over Gruffyd in 1063, and almost immediately after that event 
Harold handed the territory and government over to the native Welsh 
princes Bledyn and Rhiv/allon ab Cynfyn, with its independence 
practically unimpaired. It is well to state here that perhaps, the methods 



HISTORY OF WALES 29 

of the Normans were as a whole, no greater factor in the final overthrow 
of Welsh independence in 1282-1283, than the internal strife between the 
princely families of Wales and their following". 

Returning to the internal affairs of Wales we find that Bledyn and 
Rhiwallon, to whom Harold had delivered the possessions of Gruffyd 
ab Llewelyn in 1063, combined with Eadric the Wild, who possessed 
lands in Herefordshire and Shropshire, England, and refused to submit 
to the new Norman King of England, "William the Conqueror." The 
allies laid waste the English lands of Eadric in 1067, although they did 
not capture the town of Hereford and its fortress, which was garrisoned 
by Normans. Immediately following there was internal war in Wales. 
Maredyd and Idwal (or Ithel), sons of Gruffyd ab Llewelyn, assailed 
Bledyn and Rhiwallon. They met at Mechain and Idwal and Rhi- 
wallon fell in the battle and Meredyd fled and died of cold. Bledyn 
survived and reigned over Powys and probably the most of Gwyned; 
but in some way he seems to have lost Deheubarth, as Maredyd ab 
Owain ab Edwin was the ruler there at this time. This Maredyd 
was attacked in 1070 by Caradog ab Gruffyd ab Rhyderch, who was aided 
by the Normans, and was defeated and slain on the banks of the Rymney. 

In 1071 and 1072 the Normans raided Dyfed and Keredigion; probably 
in conjunction with Caradog ab Owain, who also fought a battle with 
Rhys ab Owain, who was likely his brother, in 1073; and this Rhys ab 
Owain and Rhyderch ab Caradog maintained themselves in Deheubarth. 

In the meantime Bledyn ab Cynfyn had remained in possession of 
Powys, and probably of a considerable part of Gwyned, and he is 
regarded by the chronicler as the man who, after Gruffyd his half brother, 
"nobly supported the whole kingdom of the Britons"; "the gentlest and 
most merciful of kings," "a defense to every one." His reign was 
terminated in 1073, as he was killed in that year by Rhys ab Owain, 
"through the deceit of evil minded chieftains and the noblemen of Ystrad 
Tywi." He was succeeded in Gwyned by acousin, Trahaiarn ab Caradog 
and Powys evidently fell to his sons. 

Rhys ab Owain and Rhyderch ab Caradog, of Deheubarth, put 
down a rising under Goronwy and Llewelyn ab Cadwgn, in a battle at 
Kamdwr, in 1073; and Rhys, after the murder of Rhyderch in 1074, de- 
feated them again in 1075. But in 1076 Trahaiarn ab Caradog attacked 
Rhys ab Owain and decisively defeated him in the battle of PwU Gwdyc, 



30 THE YALES AND WALES 



thus aveng-ing the blood of Bledyn ab Cynfyn. All of Rh3''s family fell 
in this battle, but he escaped; however, before the end of the year he was 
killed bj' Gruff^'d ab Caradog. 

After the fall of Rhys ab Owain in 1076 his kinsman, (C 23) Rhys 
ab Tewdwr (Tudor), a lineal descendent of Rhodri Mawr, succeeded 
to the rule of Deheubarth, and for about fourteen years, was the leading 
chieftain in South Wales, and was the last one who can really be re- 
garded as the sovereign king or prince, of the ancient kingdom of Deheu- 
barth, (South Wales). 

Returning again to Gwjmed, where Trahaiarn ab Caradog was 
ruler for the time, we find that his authority' was disputed. Manj^ j'ears 
before, (D 23) Cynax, the son of Iago and grandson or Idwal, who came 
of the direct line of Rhodri Mawr, had taken refuge in Ireland and 
married Raguell, daughter of Auleod, an Irish king. Thej' had a 
son (A 24) GruffydabCynan, born about 1055. This son GRUFFYD,on 
the death of Bledyn ab Cynfyn, made a descent on Mon, in 1073, and 
with the aid of his Irish kinsmen effected a settlement there. Later on 
Rhys ab Tewdwr, of Deheubarth, joined him, and with reinforcements 
from Ireland, they attacked Trahaiarn ab Caradog and in battle at 
Mynyd Carn, in 1079, Trahaiarn the King of Gw3-ned, was defeated and 
slain. Thus once more we have two princes, lineally descended from 
Rhodri Mawr ruling over Gwjmed and Deheubarth, and the sons of 
Bledyn ab Cynfyn ruled in Powys. 

For a number of 3'ears following these events nothing of importance 
happened in Wales, William the Conqueror made an expedition into 
Welsh territory with an army in 1080 or 1081; and it is stated by some 
that he subdued the country, but as no apparent change occured in the 
rule of Rhys ab Tew^dwr, or of Gruffyd ab Cynan, the campaign 
certainly had no practical results; however, he and his army penetrated 
as far as St. Davids. William the Conqueror died in 1087 and during 
his reign of twenty-one years, no encroachment had been permanently 
made on Welsh territory, but he made some dispositions which later had 
much effect on Welsh affairs. He founded the palatine earldoms of 
Chester and Shrewsbury' and made Worcester, Hereford and Gloucester, 
important military stations. A castle had been built at Rhuddlan bj' the 
Normans, where the Welsh had formerly had a seat of government, and 
also another was built at Montgomery, by (E2) Roger de Montgomery, 



HISTORY OF WALES 31 



for whom it was named. Roger de Montgomery also built the castle 
at Shrewsbury and was the first Earl of that name. The Castle at 
Cardiff was either completed, or in course of erection, when William 
died. 

As will be seen by reference to current maps, the Welsh were prac- 
tically hemmed in by these several Norman strongholds, just named. 

William Rufus succeeded William the Conqueror on the throne of En- 
gland, and in 1088 there was a rebellion among the Normans by which the 
Welsh rulers profited to some extent. Robert of Rhuddlan and Hugh of 
Chester were opposed to each other in this contest, and Gruffyd ab 
Cynan, ruler in Gwyned siezed the opportunity to invade Robert's ter- 
ritory. He advanced to Rhuddlan with his Irish allies, and slew many 
men and carried off many captives. Robert however attempted to re- 
taliate and went to a castle at the mouth of the Conway, which had been 
erected by the Normans on the site of an old British stronghold, supposed 
to have been the seat of Maelgwn. Gruffyd entered the Conway with 
three ships and raided the adjacent territory, carrying prisioners and 
cattle to his vessels. Robert sallied forth with his men and finally at- 
tended by only one knight, rushed to the shore, where he was surrounded 
and shot down by arrows and darts. His head was cut off and placed 
on the mast of one of the ships, but Gruffyd ordered it down and thrown 
into the sea, and then sailed away with his booty. 

About the time the above events were taking place, three sons of 
Bledyn ab Cynfyn, from Powys: Madog, Cadwgan and Rhirid, ex- 
pelled Rhys ab Tewdwr from Deheubarth. Rhys escaped to Ireland, 
but almost immediately returned with a fleet "of the Gwydyl" and gave 
battle to the sons of Bledyn at Lych Crei, in the same year (1088); Madog 
and Rhirid w^ere killed, but Cadwgan escaped. Rhys was evidently 
wealthy, as the gifts to his Irish mercenaries were so large as to attract 
special attention. Although his defeat of the sons of Bledyn was decisive, 
he was soon engaged in other conflicts. It seems he attacked and de- 
feated Llewelyn and Eineon, princes of Dyfed, at Landydoch; and then 
Eineon formed an alliance with lestyn, Lord of Morgannwg and they, 
together with an army of Normans, whose aid they had enlisted, attacked 
Rhys ab Tewdwr and in a terrible battle, somewhere near the borders 
of Brecknockshire, in 1093, he was defeated and slain and as stated by 
the chronicler thus, "decaied the Kingdom of South Wales." The Brut 



32 THE YALES AND WALES 

also saj'^s, with his death the King-dom of the Britons fell. He was 
certainly the last Welsh prince to rule over South Wales as a whole. 

The conquest by the Normans in South Wales and also in other Welsh 
territory continued, Cardiff Castle was completed and served as a strong- 
hold for them. Brecheiniog was invaded by Bernard de Neufmarch, who 
built a castle at Aberhondu (Brecon), in 1093. Robert Fitz-Hamon con- 
quered Glamorgan, and a force of Normans in 1093-1094, under (E 3) 
Arxulf de Montgomery, son of Roger de Montgomery, invaded 
Dyfed and Keredigion and built a castle at Pembroke and confided the 
defense of it to (3) Gerald de Windsor. During these years just noted, 
Earl Hugh of Chester had retained the Norman hold on Rhuddlan and 
Deganwy, and the Earl of Shrewsbury, Roger de Montgomery, was 
busily engaged in extending Norman power over Powys. 

In Gwj'ned, Gruffyd ab Cynan was during these times the recog- 
nized ruler, although nothing is heard of his deeds for several years after 
1088, when, as will be recalled, he slew Robert of Rhuddlan on the Con- 
way; however he was doubtless allied with Cadwgan ab Bledyn, in the 
years 1094-1099, in the efforts made to throw off the Norman yoke, although 
he is not specifically mentioned for some time after the beginning of the 
campaign. 

The year 1094 saw the beginning of a general uprising of the Welsh, 
in an attempt to push the Normans back, and Cadwgan ab Bledyn, who 
as will be remembered, escaped, while his brothers were defeated and 
killed in a battle with, Rhys ab Tewdwr in 1088, was chosen as chief 
leader by the elders; as he was son of Bledyn ab Cynfyn and nephew 
of Gruffyd ab Llewelyn ab Seisyllt. 

The Welsh allies began the movement by an attack on the newly- 
made castles of the Normans in Gwyned and Mon, which resulted in 
their destruction or capture. The Normans made a counter expedition 
into Gwyned, but were defeated in the woods of Yspwys; and Cadwgan 
and his troops took the offensive and ravaged Chester, Shropshire and 
Herefordshire, burning towns, slaying many men and earring off 
much boot3\ Having by these events freed Gwyned, the Welsh chieftains 
marched south into Keredigion and Dyfed. They demolished all the 
Norman fortresses except two. Pembroke held out under Gerald de 
Windsor and William, son of Baldwin succeeded in retaining Rhyd y 
Gors. 




Castle Dinas Bran, (Also called Castle of Yale.) 
Near Llangollen, North Wales. View taken from the western end of the ruins, look- 
ing east (1907). Dimensions of ruins about 140x300 feet. Walls 6 feet thick. Defended 
by a trench cut in the solid rock. 

This picturesque ruin stands on a conoid hill which rises abruptly from the surround- 
ing country, to a height of 1000 feet above the river Dee. An earlier structure on the site 
is said to have been destroyed by fire in the tenth century. The castle represented by 
the present ruins was quite likely built by Griffith ap Madoc about 1150. In any event he 
lived there, and so also did hisson Madoc ap Griffith, the founder of Valle Crucis Abbey 
and his grandson Griffith ap Madoc. It was therefore the abiding place of the princes of 
Powys Fadog and the lords of Bromfield and Yale. In 12.s2it passed into the hands of Earl 
Warren Mortimer, after the mysterious death of young Llewelyn ap Madoc, the rightful 
heir. It was in ruins as long ago as the time of Henry VIII. Some authorities state 
that it was built by Owain Gwyned, Prince of North Wales in 1148; but anyway he did 
not live there and the heiritage came through another line, to the princes of Powys 
Fadog and their descendants, the lords of Bromffeld and Yale: however one of the last 
Welsh lords of Bromfield and Yale, Griffith ap Madoc who died in 1270, was Owain 
Gwyned's grandson. 




Castle Dinas Bran. (Ruins of tower and south side.) 



HISTORY OF WALES 33 

It is said that Cadwgan brought all the people and all the cattle 
out of Dyfed, leaving- Dyfed and Keredigion a desert. 

For the present the work of the Normans seemed to have been undone; 
they had practically been cleared out of Wales. However in 1095 the 
Normans of Morgannwg made a fresh advance to the West and overran 
Gower, Kidweli and Ystrad Towi, and built several strong castles at 
Swansea, Kidweli, Longhor and Llanrhidian. 

While the Normans were making the advances just named in the 
South, the Cymry of Powys, with probably the men of Gwyned, were fight- 
ing in the valley of the Severn, in England; where they took the impor- 
tant Norman castle of Tre Faldwin and killed the garrison. This latter 
event aroused King William Rufus, and he personally commanded an ex- 
pedition into Wales, about the end of the year 1095; but the Welsh 
avoided a pitched battle with this large force and the Normans returned 
to England without having accomplished anything. 

The Cymry were encouraged by the failure of the Norman King and 
in 1096 "threw off the Norman yoke" in Brecheiniog, Gwent, and Gwen- 
11 wg. They also took possession of the castle of Rhyd y Gors, which the 
garrison had deserted and which formerly had successfully resisted their 
efforts, and following this success, Uchtrud ab Edwin and Howel ab 
Goronwy, with many chieftains of the cenedl of Cadwgan, marched 
against Pembroke, the only great castle in the south which had with- 
stood their previous attacks, and which as before, was in command of 
Gerald de Windsor. They failed again to take this castle, but despoiled 
and ravaged the territory, taking away its cattle and immense booty. 

While these events were taking place in the South there was also 
fighting in the North, and in the meantime the Normans sent an army 
into Gwent; but like the forces of William Rufus, it returned empty- 
handed, and was also cut off and defeated at Kelli Carnant. Soon 
afterwards a larger force was raised by the Normans, with the view of 
crushing the whole of the Welsh territory; but it met defeat also at 
Aberllech, by the sons of Idnerth ab Cadwgan. 

So far the success of the Cymry, in pushing the Normans back and 
in regaining their territory, had been singularly great; they had almost 
entirely retrieved and annulled the Norman conquests begun by William 
the Conqueror, and had assumed control of about all the land which had 
been theirs before the Norman invasion. However, great reverses were 



34 THE YALES AND WALES 

soon to come, and the first Norman blow g-iven to the new C3^mric power 
which had been raised over "Wales under the leadership of Cadwgan ab 
Bledyn, was by Gerald de Windsor, who took the offensive early in 
1097 and ravag^ed the land of Dyfed, up to the boundaries of the church 
of St David. 

Following- this event, King- William Rufus determined to go to the 
aid of his lords in the west, and gathering an army soon after Easter, 
1097, he entered Wales. Led by native guides, he penetrated far into the 
country, but with no practical results. He returned to England; but be- 
fore mid-summer of the same year he again set forth with an army of cav- 
alry and foot soldiers and for the third time, proceeded far into Wales, 
where he remained for some w^eeks, returning, however, to England some 
time in August without accomplishing an3^thing; losing, nevertheless, in 
the meantime many men and horses, also equipment, His three cam- 
paigns into Wales had been failures; he had not yet learned what experi- 
ence had taught Harold in 1063: that cavalr}^ especially knights in ar- 
mour, could do nothing against an enemy, lightly armed and on foot and 
who knew every inch of the country. The Normans, however, learned by 
these events, the lesson, which more than all others, had definite results 
in the final undoing of Welsh independence; and this was that castle- 
building could subdue territorj^ w^hich to their armies had seemed im- 
pregnable. 

Returning to the immediate events of the times, it seems that while 
King William Rufus himself had been unsuccessful with his armies, 
some of his earls and lords, following the success of Gerald de Windsor, 
in the early part of 1097, which has been noted, made campaigns into 
Wales, which had far reaching and definite effects; and it seems too, 
that in the meantime, the internal strife and jealousies between the prince- 
ly families, which had so many times before worked havoc with Welsh 
affairs, had been revived, and this combination brought a quick down- 
fall of the results attained by the recent Welsh achievements. 

The great border earls, Hugh the Fat, of Chester, and Hugh the 
Proud of Shrewsbury, (the eldest son and successor of Roger de Mont- 
gomery), in 1098, made an expedition into Mon; Cadwgan ab Bledyn 
and Gruffyd ab Cynan, retreated into the strongest places and en- 
listed a fleet of Vikings in their service; but their defense was of no 
avail, and finally, for fear of their own men, they fled to Ireland. The 



HISTORY OF WALES 35 

earls and their followers treated the inhabitants of Mon with extreme 
cruelty; but Hugh the Proud was killed during this conquest by Magnus, 
a Prince or King of Norway. 

In South Wales the Normans were equally successful, and with the 
slaying of Llewelyn, one of the sons of Cadwgan, in 1099, they achieved 
complete victory. 

In 1099 Cadwgan and Gruffyd returned from Ireland. The former 
made peace with the Normans and received Keredigion and part of 
Powys. Gruffyd obtained possession of Mon, but whether by force or 
not is uncertain; at any rate he did not receive it by grant from the Nor- 
man King. Affairs remained in this position through the year 1100, 
during which time William Rufus was killed and Henry I. became King 
of England. 

In 1101 the revolt of Robert de Belleme and his brother Arnulf de 
Montgomery (sons of Roger de Montgomery) against King Henry !• 
of England, had an important effect on the aft'airs of Wales. Robert 
de Belleme had become Earl of Shrewsbury, after his brother Hugh 
was killed by Magnus and he and Arnulf, espoused the cause of Robert, 
Duke of Normandy, who sought to oust Henry I. from the English throne. 

Robert and Arnulf asked for the assistance of Cadwgan ab Bledyn 
and his brothers lorwerth and (A 24) Maredyd, whom they regarded as 
their vassals; and it seems in fact thejM hen were, as Cadwgan was at 
this time, and since his return from Ireland, a feudal tenant of the Earl 
of Shrewsbury. 

The Welsh princes repaired to Shrewsbury, where they were re- 
ceived "magnificently and honorabl}'," and the earls made great prom- 
ises of Welsh liberty. Cadwgan then called together, the host of the ter- 
ritories of the house of Bledyn, and together with the earls, achieved 
temporarj^ successes. Henry I. however speedily laid siege to Bridge- 
narth, the principal castle of Robert, and at the same time, opened nego- 
tiations with lorwerth, with the view of detaching the Welsh allies from 
the Norman Earls. He promised lorwerth, during his own life (Henry's) 
Powys, Ceredigion, half of Dyfed, YstradTowi, Cidweli and Gower; if 
he would turn the Welsh against the earls. lorwerth consented, without 
the know ledge of his brothers, and sent orders to the Welsh forces to turn 
against Robert, which they did, and thoroughly despoiled the territory 
of the earls, collecting immense booty. It seems that in the meantime 



36 THE YALES AND WALES 

Arnulf had gone to Ireland for aid; but before the end of the year, 
Robert was forced to submit, and he was allowed to cross over to Nor- 
mandy. Arxulf remained in Ireland, where he had been negotiating- 
with King Muircertach for reinforcements. 

The Welsh princes quarreled after these events and lorwerth seized 
and imprisioned Maredyd, but agreed to give Cad wgan part of the lands 
promised to him by Henry I. The latter, however, refused to keep his 
bargain and imprisoned lorwerth on a charge of treason, where he re- 
mained until 1109. Pembroke was given to one Saer, from whom it 
passed in 1104, to Gerald de Windsor, who had held it for some years 
before for the king. 

The Norman lords, in fact, retook or retained the fortresses which 
they had built, and Deheubarth and Pow3^s not actually in Norman 
hands, was divided bj'^ Henry, between Howel ab Goronwy, (a grandson 
of Rhys ab Tewdwr), and the descendents of Bledyn. The former re- 
ceived Ystrad Towi, Cidweli and Gower, as fiefs from the king, and 
Cadwgan and other members of the cenedl of bledyn, were confirmed in 
the possession of Ceredigion and parts of Powys, on terms of vassalage. 
In the North, Gruffyd ab Cynan still held Mon and parts of Gwyned 
on the mainland, independently of Henry. 

As will be noted the Welsh princely families were at this time, with 
the exception of Gruffyd ab Cynan, in the position of tenants (in capiti) 
of Henr3^ I. 

Howel ab Goronwy did not long enjoy his possessions; he was at 
feud with the house of Bledyn, and was soon in trouble with Richard 
son of Baldwin, over Rhyd y Gors castle, which Howel claimed. He 
was expelled from his lands, but soon returned and slew many of the 
Normans; however through conspirac\'' in 1105, he was surrounded while 
•asleep in the house of a supposed friend; his sword and spear were 
taken awaj^ before he awoke and his men at arms deserted. He was 
captured and beheaded and his possessions were divided among several 
Normans and Welshmen. 

Cadwgan in 1108 was still in undisturbed possession of Ceredigion 
and parts of Powys, which he had received from Henry I., but his declin- 
ing years were clouded in misfortune by the lawless acts of his son, 
Owain ab Cadwgan; whose first recorded feat was the sla^'ing of the 
sons of Trahaiarn ab Caradog. His next adventure was an attack on

HISTORY OF WALES 37 

Pembroke castle and the abduction of Nest (or Nesta) the wife of Ger- 
ald DE Windsor. Nest was daug-hter of Rhys ab Tewdwr, Prince of 
South Wales, and before her marriag-e to Gerald, had been mistress of 
Henrj^ I., King- of England. She was said to be the most beautiful woman 
of her time, and was called the, "Helen of Wales." The narrative of 
the event states that Gerald de Windsor was still holding Pembroke 
in 1107, and he had deposited there, "all his riches, with his wife and 
heirs and all dear to him, and he fortified it with a ditch and a wall 
and a gateway with a lock to it. ' ' The next Christmas time Cadwgan 
made a feast in honor of God, at which Owain was present. The con- 
versation turned upon the charms of Nest, and Owain, fired by the ac- 
counts of her beauty, paid a visit to Pembroke, and being received as 
her kinsman — as in fact he was — made the acquaintance of the lady. 
Soon afterwards, with a small band, he made a raid on the castle, set 
fire to the houses near it and forced an entrance. Gerald escaped, 
through the connivance of his wife, but Owain carried away Nest, as 
well as the children, and returned with them to his own land, taking 
also booty of the more usual kind. 

Cadwgan, Owain's father, was greatly disturbed at such an outrage, 
against a man so high in the king's favor, and tried to induce his son to 
return to the great steward, his wife and the spoils, but in vain. The 
children were however sent back, but Nest herself was for the time de- 
tained. 

Gerald de Windsor had his revenge sometime later; however in 
the meantime, Richard, the King's steward at Shrewsbury, persuaded 
Ithel and Madog, sons of Rhirid ab Bledyn. to capture Owain, or expel 
both him and Cadwgan. Owain fled to Ireland, and Cadwgan secretly 
went to a retreat in Powys, owned by his wife; while Ithel and Madog 
seized that part of Powys which Cadwgan had received from the king. 
Cadwgan soon made peace with the king and was allowed to return to 
Ceredigion, by promising to have nothing to do with Owain. 

Owain returned to Powys and was joined by Madog ab Rhirid, who 
had quarreled with the Normans and together, with armed forces, they 
roamed the country, burning and robbing wherever they could. 

lorwerth ab Bledyn who had been imprisoned by the king in 1102, 
was now (1109) released, and he returned to his lands in Powys, where 
in the meantime Owain and Madog had made their headquarters. 



38 THE YALES AND WALES 

lorwerth tried to have them desist from their lawless course, but they 
scorned his request. The}'^ continued their depredations until the king" 
took Cadwgan's lands and gave them to Gilbert, founder of the house of 
Clare, who built two castles in the region, and the king pensioned Cad- 
wgan. 

Owain again retreated to Ireland, where Madog already was. 
Madog soon returned to Wales and to lorwerth's lands. The latter 
treated him with scorn and he with Llewelyn ab Trahaiarn plotted to 
kill lorwerth, which they did in 1110, with the aid of. Llewelyn's men, 
slaying him with their spears after a brave defense. 

After lorwerth's death the king gave Powys to Cadwgan; but he 
was also killed by Madog and his men. 

Maredyd AB Bledyn, Cadwgan's brother, held his land until Owain, 
Cadwgan's son, should return from Ireland. 

Owain returned in 1110, and both he and Madog interviewed Henry, 
the King, and received grants of land, on giving pledges and promising 
"much money"; but the friendship between these princes had ceased, 
owing to the murder of Cadwgan by Madog. In 1112 Madog was taken 
prisoner by Maredyd ab Bledyx, who turned him over to Owain and 
he put out his eyes, but spared his life, and Maredyd and Owain divided 
his lands between theinselves. 

Gruffyd ab Cynan was, during these events ruling in Gwyned and 
in 1114, he was accused by the Normans of various misdeeds, and about 
the same time Owain ab Cadwgan, was also accused of robberies. The 
King of England made an expedition into Wales. Maredyd ab Bledyn 
submitted at once, and Gruffyd ab Cynan made peace by paying a 
large tribute; Owain ab Cadwgan also made terms with the king, and 
accompanied him in an honorable capacity on an expedition into Nor- 
mandj'. 

The principality of Powys was now practically at an end, and about 
all of Cymru, except Gwyned, was divided between the Norman and 
Welsh lords, who came to be called "Lords-Marchers." 

And now comes the end of Owain ab Cadwgan's stormy career. It 
seems that Rhys ab TEWDWR,the last great Prince of South Wales, who 
fell in 1093, had left a young son, (C 24) Gruffyd ab Rhys, who had been 
taken for safety to Ireland. He returned to Wales in 1112. He remained 
quiet until 1114, when, having learned that the English King Henry had 



HISTORY OF WALES 39 

desig-ns on his life, he took refug-e with Gruffyd ab Cynan in Gwj'ned. 
It is evident that the latent hopes of the Welsh people were now centered 
in this young- prince, and for this reason, Henry desired to capture him. 
He is described in the "Brut" as "thelig-ht and strength and g-entleness 
of the men of South Wales." Gruffyd ab Cynan promised, on the king's 
demand, to deliver him up; but Gruffyd ab Rhys, hearing of this, fled 
south and collected a force in Ystrad Towi, and in 1116 was raiding in 
various directions in South Wales. 

Owain ab Cadwgan, who was with the king, was commissioned, to- 
gether with Ly warch ab Trahaiarn, to capture youngf Grufl:'yd ab Rhj's. 
They promptly collected an army and proceeded to Ystrad Towi, harry- 
ing the country; the people fleeing before them, to Carmarthen. At this 
time also Gerald de Windsor was marching with a force of Flemings, 
from Rhos, in Dyfed, towards Carmarthen ostensibly, also, with the in- 
tention of putting down Gruffyd for the king, inasmuch as he was a 
Norman lord in the service of the king. 

The people complained to Gerald about Owain, and when the two 
forces met, Gerald set his Flemings upon O wain's force. Owain met 
the assault bravely, but fell at the first discharge of arrows and was 
promptly dispatched. 

While Gerald and Owain were both in the service of the king, it 
will be recalled that Owain, years before, had abducted Gerald's wife. 
Nest, and perhaps this outrage was the incentive for Gerald's attack. 
Furthermore Gruffyd ab Rhys, whom they were supposed to be trying 
tocapture, was Nest's brother and Gerald's brother-in-law; so it seems 
to me very likely, that while not openly acting in defiance of the king's 
orders, Gerald was really marching to intercept Owain, in aid of 
Gruffyd, and to avenge his own wrongs at the same time. 

For some years longer Maredyd ab Bledyn and the remaining sons 
of Cadwgan ab Bled yn, upheld the claimsof their cenedl, to the sovereignty 
of so much of Powys as was not in the hands of the Norman — English 
lords, and in 1121 they rose again against the foreigners, Maredyd 
and his friends, appealed to Grufeyd ab CyNAN, Prince of Gwyned, 
for help; but he prudently refused to join them against King Henry, 
who entered Wales with an "immense and cruel" army. There was 
at least one engagement, during which King Henry was struck on the 
breast-plate with an arrow, which glanced off and did not wound him; 



40 THE YALES AND WALES 

but he became greatly disconcerted and behaved with cowardice and en- 
tered into negotiations, which led to peace, and which, it seems, involved 
the submission to Henry's sovereignty, as before. 

Mared\td ab Bledyn died in 1129 or 1130 and the "Brut" describes 
him as the "ornament, and safetj', and defence of all Powys." The ruin 
of the house of Bledyn was now complete, so far as sovereignty was 
concerned, and the possessions of the princely families in Powys and 
South Wales had dwindled to small areas. In Gwyned (North Wales) 
however, Gruffyd ab Cynan was in authority, as an independent sov- 
ereign, with the sole exception of acknowledging, personally, the superi- 
ority^ of the King of England; which did not carry with it any jurisdic- 
tion of the English royal court over his territory. 

Gruffyd ab Cynan, Prince or King of North Wales died, in 1137 
at the age of 82, and was interred on the South side of the altar, in Bangor 
Cathedral, having survived Henry I. of England by two years. Gruffyd 
had assumed the monastic habit before his death. His long, prudent 
and wise reign, had built up the strength and importance of his king- 
dom during a very difficult period, and made North Wales the center of 
Welsh national life, and the eagerly sought refuge, of many Welshmen 
dispossessed elsewhere by the Normans. North Wales continued as an 
independent nation for 145 years after the death of Gruffyd ab* Cynan. 
His ensign was, "gu, three lions, passant, in pale, arg., armed az. " 

Gruffyd left several sons. His son Owain (usually called (D 25) 
Owain Gwyned) succeeded to the principality, and his brothers doubt- 
less received shares under his sovereignty. Owain and his brother Cad- 
waladr, had, before their father's death, made some expeditions into the 
territories of the lords-marchers, and had captured and retained for a 
time, some of the fortresses built by the invaders; and in the year of 
Owain 's succession, they again marched to the south and destro3^ed sev- 
eral castles. 

During King Stephen's reign of 17 years in England, he left Wales 
much to itself and Owain materially added to the resources of his country 
and re-occupied several districts, which the Welsh had lost in former 
years. In the meantime however, he and Cadwaladr quarreld and the 
latter fled to England. Also during these years (C 25) Rhys ab Gruffyd, 
a son of Gruff\td ab Rhys, who was son of Rhys ab Tewdwr, had won 
several comparatively important engagements and successes in the south. 



HISTORY OF WALES 41 

Henry II. succeeded Stephen on the Eng-Jish throne, and in 1157 he 
invaded North Wales; but was met and defeated by Owain. One of the 
king-'s two forces, personally commanded by the king-, was defeated in 
the woods by Owain's two sons, Davyd and Cynan, and escaped with 
difficulty, The king- then g-athered his forces together and went to Rhudd- 
lan; but was harrassed day and night by Owain, with the assistance of 
(A 25) Madog ab Maredyd, the chief Welsh baron of Powys; their forces 
being- encamped at Lwyn Pina. 

Henry's army was supported by a fleet, which sailed along the coast 
and eff'ected a landing- in Mon; but after pillag^ing- some churches, this 
force was defeated with heavy slaughter by the men of the island. 

Henry's attempt was a failure, but nevertheless peace was made, 
and Owain restored his brother Cadwaladr to his lands and did hom- 
age to Henry. 

About this time, peace was made also, between Rhys ab Gruffyd 
and Henry. Rhys had been wag-ing a sporadic warfare against the 
Norman lords, from the recesses of Ystrad Towi; Henry asked him to 
come to court. He went, and Henry made peace, by agreeing to give 
him Cantref Mawr and other lands adjoining. 

Peace continued until in 1164, and then Rhys began to raid the lands 
of the Normans again, because Henry had not fully kept his promise. 
He dismantled and burnt the castle at Aber Rheidol and overran Kered- 
igion a second time. Now Owain Gwyned joined him at the head of the 
other Welsh barons, and Henry II. with a large force, marched to 
Owestry; while the Welsh hosts under Owain Gwyned, his brother Cad- 
waladr and Owain Cyfeiliog, and other lords of Powys, encamped at 
Corwen. The king hesitated to attack, and finally moved into the wood 
of Ceiriog and thence penetrated to near the Berwyn range; but his 
supplies failing and the weather being bad, he was compelled to retreat 
to Chester and abandon the expedition. He however cruelly blinded 
some Welsh hostages whom he held. 

Later in the year Henry left England and was absent about six 
years, during which time there were the usual disputes and quarrels 
among the Welsh, but no warfare of consequence. The most serious 
quarrel was in 1167, between Owain Gwyned and Rhys ab Gruffyd 
on one side and Owain Cyfeiliog on the other, in which after some fighting, 
the latter, with Norman aid, came off the better. However during the 



42 THE YALES AND WALES 

year Owain and Rhys took and destro3'ed the castles at Rhuddlan and 
Prestatyn. 

Nothing- retarded the growing- power of Gwyned, until the death of 
Owain Gwyned in 1169; after which his sons quarreled. Owain's later 
years were clouded by religious disputes, caused partly by a disputed 
election to the see of Bangor, and partly by his marriage to his cousin 
Crisiant, who was his second wife. In the end he was excommunicated 
by Thomas a Becket, but notwithstanding this, he received the last sac- 
rament and a Christain burial at Bangor. The Welsh chronicler praises 
him as a man of "the most extraordinary sagacity, nobleness, fortitude, 
and bravery." 

On Owain's death his succession was disputed among the sons. His 
brother Cadwaladr advanced no claims, although he survived Owain 
several years, dying in 1172. Howel ab Owain, the late prince's eldest 
son, and Davj^d, one of his sons by Crisiant, were both declared illegit- 
imate by the clergy; while (D 26) Iorw^erth, the eldest legitimate son 
of Owain, by Gladj's, daughter of the Lord of Pembroke, was for some 
reason passed over altogether; although his son (D 27) Llewelyn ab 
lORWERTH (Llewelyn the Great), later on obtained Gwyned, and raised 
the principality to its highest point of power and renown. His mother 
was the Princess Margaret, daughter of Madoc, Prince of Powys. Any- 
way, Howel gained the throne in some way, directly after his father's 
death, but did not hold it long. Davyd attacked and slew him in 1170; 
but his brother Maelgwn seized Mon, while other members of the family 
refused to submit; however he succeeded in driving Maelgwn from Mon 
in 1173, and by 1174, had driven all his brothers or near relatives, who 
refused to recognize him as ruler, into exile. 

When the barons revolted against Henry II. Davyd sided with the 
king, and in 1175 married Henry's bastard sister Emma, the daughter 
of Geoffrey Plantagenet by a lady of Maine. This did not please his 
Welsh subjects, and before the end of 1175, his brother Rhodri seized Mon 
and part of the mainland, while his nephews, thesonsof Cynanab Owain, 
seized Meirionj-d. Davj^d was driven over the Conway. He was now 
granted Ellesmere, but his power over Gwyned had about lapsed, and 
his real sway was limited to Rhuddlan and the Vale of Clw^'d, with his 
newly acquired estate. He died unnoticed in 1203. 

During the years when Davj'd was trying to secure his sway over 



HISTORY OF WALES 43 

Gwyned, Rhys ab Gruffyd, the grandson of Rhys ab Tewdwr, the last 
actual Prince of South Wales, lived at Cantref Mawr and was engaged 
in almost continual warfare with the lords-marchers within his reach, 
and sometimes with his Welsh neighbors. However after defeating O wain 
Cyfeiliog, in a campaign in 1171, he became reconciled to King- Henry II. 
of England and joined him in an expedition to Ireland. The king- 
granted him Keredigion and other lands, and returned his son Howel, 
who had been held as a hostage. Henry also made him Justiciar of 
South Wales. He rebuilt the castle of Aberteifi (Cardigan), whence for 
many years, he ruled over a large part of South Wales in comparative 
peace and was greatly revered by the Welsh, and in his later years was 
called "the lord Rhys," and he was emphatically "the lord" in his do- 
main. He died at an advanced age in 1197. 

Returning to the affairs of Gwyned, we find that Llewelyn ab 
lORWERTH, grandson of Owain Gwyned, who was born about 1176, had 
obtained possession of the greater part of Gwyned before his uncle Davyd 
died. He made peace with King John of England, on terms which gave 
him good title to the principality of North Wales, and in 1206 he married 
Joan, the daughter of King John. In 1207 John and Llewelyn fought 
Gwenwynwyn, (son of Owain Cyfeiliog; a lord in Powys, and Llewelyn 
seized his lands. In the same campaign Llewelyn conquered all of 
Keredigion north of the Aeron, which Maelgwn ab Rhys then possessed. 
Most of the Welsh barons now acknowleged him as their superior. In 
1208 there was a quarrel between John and Llewelyn. John helped 
Gwenwynwyn regain his lands in Powys in 1209, and Llewelyn rav- 
aged the land of Chester and made successful attacks on the English 
within his reach, in the same year. 

John decided to depose Llewelyn, and in 1210, took the field with 
a large army and with the aid of Welsh allies, drove Llewelyn into the 
mountains. John captured Bangor and rebuilt many castles. Later 
Llewelyn sued for peace, and owingto Joan's intercession, retained the 
most of Gwyned, but ceded Perfedwlad and made large gifts in cattle 
and delivered hostages. 

King John was now having trouble with his English barons, and 
Llewelyn took the field against him, and with the help of Gwenwynwyn 
and Maelgwn and others, took in 1211, all the castles which John had 
built in Gwyned, and achieved some successes in Powys. He continued 



44 THE YALES AND WALES 

the hostilities into 1212, and John retaliated by hanging- 28 of the Welsh 
hostag-es at Nottingham and made hasty preparations for another expe- 
dition into Wales; but troubles in England compelled him to abandon 
his designs and Llewelyn soon regained Perfedwlad. 

John asked Llewelyn's aid against his English barons, but the 
latter refused and acted with the barons instead, and succeeded in 
having clauses inserted in the great charter, ("Magna Charta") which 
the barons compelled John to sign, intended to remedy the grievances of 
the Welsh. John died in October, 1216. 

The Welsh lords of the South had revolted. Llewelyn came to 
their aid, and in 1215 took Carmarthen, demolished the castle of Llan- 
stephan and manj' others, marched through Keredigion and captured 
the castles of Aberystwyth and Cilgerran. He was equally successful 
the next two years and as a result became the feudal chief of all Wales, 
not in the actual possession of the lord-marchers. 

King John was succeeded on the English throne by his infant son 
Henry III., and William Marshal, Earl of Pembroke, was made "gov- 
ernor of King and Kingdom." Llewelyn pursuing his usual policy, did 
homage to the boy-king at Winchester in 1218. William Marshal died 
in 1219, and his son William succeeded to his great possessions and 
later became involved in a private war with Llewelyn of six j^ears 
duration. In 1221 Henry III. entered Wales with an armj' in the earl's 
interest, with, however, little result; but the earl about this time defeated 
the Welsh in a battle, with great slaughter. 

The Archbishop of Canterbury now excommunicated Llewp:lyn, 
but his power remained unshaken, and again the King of England led 
another army into Wales, and while no decisive operations took place, 
peace was made; however the Earl and Llewelyn were at feud until 
the king and prince Llewelyn met at Shrewsbury in 1226, when some 
sort of reconcilliation was effected. 

For sometime there was peace, but in 1228, Henry III. and Llewelyn 
were again at war, and the king marched into Montgomery. There was 
at least one battle, and while no important results were achieved by the 
king, peace was made and Llewelyn agreed to pay 3000 marks, as com- 
pensation. About this time however, Llewelyn captured William de 
Braose, the heir to the powerful marcher house of de Braose, and he was 
compelled to purchase his release in 1229, by paying 3000 marks and by

HISTORY OF WALES 45 

consenting to the marriag-e of his daughter Isabella to Davyd, Llewelyn 's 
son by Joan; and further by agreeing to not take up arms against the 
prince again. It so happened, however, that William had an intrigue 
with Joan during his captivity and afterwards, which Llewelyn dis- 
covered, and publicly hanged him in the year 1230; but Davyd married 
Isabella nevertheless. 

In 1231 Llewelyn invaded the marches, burnt Montgomery castle, 
marched to Brecon and Gwent, destroying castles and cruelly devas- 
tating the districts. He advanced to Neath and Kidweli and then with 
the helpof some South Welsh lords, took Cardigan. This brilliant cam- 
paign alarmed the English government; the spiritual weapons of excom- 
munication and interdict, were again employed against the prince, and 
once more Henr3^ III. marched into Wales; but effected nothing decisive. 
A truce for three years however was soon arranged, on the terms of the 
suspension of the excommunication and interdict; but before the truce ex- 
pired, he joined the earl of Pembroke against the king and raided Gwent 
and Morgannwg and besieged Carmarthen, yet even after a prolonged 
attempt, they failed to take the castle, and peace was renewed the next 
year, on terms favorable to the Welsh. 

In 1238, he convened his Welsh vassal lords at Strata Florida* 
where they swore fealty to his son Davyd, who was to be his successor. 

He had in the meantime released his son (D 28) Gruffyd, whom he 
had imprisoned in 1228, for insubordination, and had given him lands 
in Leyn, Now having arranged his succession and his other affairs, 
he retired from the world and assumed the monastic habit. He died 
April 11, 1240, in the Cistercian monastery at Aberconway. 

The Welsh accorded to Llewelyn, and with justice, the title of 
Mawr (the Great) and he is known as "Llewelyn the Great." His full 
name, as we have noted, was Llewelyn ab Iorwerth, and he was no 
doubt the most capable ruler the Cymry produced, after Howel Da, or 
Gruffyd ab Llewelyn. 

Llewelyn's son Davyd II. succeeded to the principality and in 
1239, seized and imprisoned his half-brother, Gruffyd, with whom he 
had long been at feud. Senena, the wife of Gruffyd, interceded with 
King Henry at Shrewsbury, in her husband's behalf, and Henry made 
an expedition into Wales and Davyd submitted ; but by the agreement of 
peace Gruffyd was transferred to the king, who exacted from him a re- 



46 THE YALES AND WALES 

linquishment of much of his lands, and kept him imprisoned in the Tower 
of London. Gruffyd, despairing of release, attempted to escape in 1244, 
by means of a rope, but fell in the attempt and his neck was broken. 

Davyd II. ag^ain engaged in war with the English, with varj^ng 
success and finally his career was cut short, bj- his death in 1246. He 
left no issue, but Gruffyd had left three sons, namely: Owain Goch, 
(D 29) Llewelyn and Davyd. 

Owain and Llewelyn assumed the sovereignty of Wales and divided 
the possessions of their house, making provision also for their younger 
brother Davj^d; but the King of England at once regarded them as 
rebels, for it seems the king had in earlier years forced agreements, 
whereby the principality was to pass to the English crown, in case 
Dav^d II. died without issue. A treaty was made however, in 1247, by 
which Henry pardoned the rebellion, retained all Welsh lands east of 
the Conway and a part of the southern districts, but conferred upon O wain 
and Llewelyn the residue of the principality. 

Peace was maintained until 1254, when Owain and Davyd took up 
arms against Llewelyn, who had been strengthening his power and 
popularity among the Welsh. 

Llewelyn defeated his brothers at Bryn Derwin; Owain was cap- 
tured and imprisoned, while Davyd escaped to England and Llewelyn 
seized their lands, and on the deatii of Maredj^d ab Llewelyn, one of his 
vassal barons, seized Meirionyd (Merioneth). 

About this time, Edward, the eldest son of Henry III. and heir to the 
English throne, was married, and the king conferred on him the Earldom 
of Chester and all his lands in Wales. The king's lands in Wales con- 
sisted principally, of Perfedwlad and three lordships in the south. Ed- 
ward at this time was only sixteen years of age, and his ministers, pos- 
siblj' under the direction of the king, attempted to bring the Welsh lands 
named under English laws and regulations. The Welsh laws, established 
several centuries before by the great Welsh King, Howel Da, had been 
up to this time in vogue in these portions, as well as the other sections 
of Wales, and the people were bitterly opposed to giving them up; further- 
more, Edward's ministers were cruel and oppressive in their manage- 
ment of affairs. In their distress they appealed to Llewelyn. He took 
the field in 1256, with the determination to regain the territory which he 
had lost by the settlement of 1247, and to relieve the distress of his 



HISTORY OF WALES 47 

countrymen. For eleven years there was almost continual warfare, 
which was finall}'^ ended however by the peace of 1267. 

Once determined on war, Llewelyn acted with vigor and prompti- 
tude. In the autumn of 1256 he invaded Perfedwlad. His forces were 
hailed with delig-ht by the inhabitants and he subdued it within a week, 
except the castles of Diserth and Deganwy. He then marched south, 
overran parts of Keredigion and took the cantref of Buallt in Powys, 
which belong-ed to the Mortimers. He did not retain these southern con- 
quests in his own possession, but g-ranted them to Maredyd ab Owain, 
who as a descendent of Rhys ab Tewdwr, aud who therefore represented 
the ancient princely line of South Wales. He also restored to Maredyd 
ab Rhys Gryg-, lands which had been taken from him. 

In his next campaign, (1257) Llewelyn expelled Roger Mortimer, 
from the cymwd of Gwrthryn, in Powys, and Gruifyd ab Gwenwj^nwyn 
from Cyfeiliog; he also ravaged a large part of South Wales, taking and 
burning many castles that were in English hands. Henry III. in the 
summer of 1257, came to his son's assistance with a considerable force 
and reached Deganwy, but he did not cross the Conway. He soon re- 
tired without accomplishing anything. 

In 1258 a truce for one year was concluded between Henry III. and 
Llewelyn. 

Llewelyn's fame was now spreading, for he was able to enter into 
an alliance with Scotch nobles, against the king, and to enter into 
friendly relations with the English barons, who were discontented with 
Henry's weak, yet tyrannical government. His domestic rule and mil- 
itary career had been so successful, that now, nearly all the Welsh 
barons, openly took their stand on his side, and at a formal assembly, a 
large number of the nobles of Wales, took oaths of fealty to him. 

The year 1262 brought the opening of hostilities, after the peace of 
1258. Llewelyn began by attacking Roger Mortimer, one of the princi- 
pal lord-marchers in the cantref of Maelienyd, and he also seized several 
castles in that region. He then compelled the submission of Brecheiniog, 
and returned to Gwjmed. The English were alarmed and in 1263, 
Edward marched into Wales, but without results- 
Civil war now broke out in England, between the barons headed by 
Simon de Montfort, and the king. Llewelyn formed an alliance with 
Simon, who promised him his daughter Eleanor in marriage. 



48 THE YALES AND WALES 

Success in battle made Simon de Montfort, finally, the real ruler of 
England and Edward was taken prisoner. The Parliament of 1265, 
assigned the earldom of Chester to Simon. 

In the meantime, while giving- powerful support to Simon and his 
party, Llkwrlyn had put down allopposition to his rule in Wales and 
had taken the castles of Diserth and Deganwy, which had previously 
successfully resisted his efforts. Simon rewarded Llewiclyn for his 
aid, by forcing the king to grant him large additional territories, in- 
cluding Mauds castle, Hawarden, Ellesmere and Montgomery, and to 
formally acknowledge his sovereignty in the principality of Wales. 

Fortune however soon deserted the great earl. On August 4th 1265, 
he was defeated and slain, by prince Edward, at the battle of Evesham. 
The loss was very great to Llicwjclyn, but he continued the war, and 
in September 1265, made an inroad into Chester, which had been restored 
to Edward. The cause of the barons was however now lost, and they 
made peace with the king. Also peace was soon made between Llewkyn 
and P^dward, through the intervention of the Pope, and a treaty was 
signed at Montgomery by King Henry III. and Llewelyn; which was so 
favorable to the Welsh, as to amount to a real triumph for the Welsh 
nation. The king agreed that Lt.ewelyn and his heirs should have the 
principality of Wales, on the terms of doing homage, and Llewelyn 
was to receive the homage of the Welsh barons, except that of Maredyd 
ab Rh^^s, the representative of the old South Wales line of princes, which 
the king reserved for himself. The limits of the principality were defined 
in a liberal manner towards Llewelyn, and Perfedwlad was granted 
to him also. Davyd, Llewelyn's brother, was restored to his private 
possessions, and Llewelyn was to pay an indemnity of 24rX)0 marks. 
This treaty practically left to Edward, no part of his former Welsh 
estates, except Carmarthen and its appurtenant lands. 

It is impossible to conjecture what might have been the result, had 
Llewelyn steadfastly adhered to the terms of this treaty, butitisnot 
unreasonable to presume, in view of the uncertain and devious devolution 
of the ICnlish kingship, in the succeeding years, that if he and his heirs 
had faithfully adhered to the treaty and keptoutof English civil entangle- 
ments, the "crown of Britain" might have been fin ally regained for some 
descendent of his house. Events however brought far different results. 

Llewelyn kept peace until the death of Henry III. in 1272. On

HISTORY OF WALES 49 

November 29th 1272, he was summoned by a commission appointed by 
the reg-ents, to do homage to the new King- Edward, who himself was 
then absent from England with the crusaders in the East. The prince 
took no notice of the summons, and was in the meantime, likely negoti- 
ating with the sons of Simon de Montfort. Anyway in 1273, he was be- 
trothed to Eleanor de Montfort, in accordance with the previous promise 
of the late earl, and about this time, he obtained a decree from Pope 
Gregory X., absolving him from obedience to citations to places outside 
of Wales. 

Furthermore, his brother Davyd and other barons, revolted about this 
time, and he defeated them and seized their lands; and Davyd fled to 
England and was well received by the king, which likely offended 
Llewelyn. 

Edward I. was crowned on August 18th 1274, and while Alexander 
III. of Scotland, attended the ceremony and paid homage, Llewelyn, 
was conspicuous by his absence. King Edward determined to compel 
him to pay homage, and went to Chester and summoned him there, but 
Llewelyn refused to attend, and Edward returned to England in anger 
It was about this time that Eleanor de Montfort, under the escort of her 
brother Amaury , sailed for G wyned to marry Llewelyn ; but the vessels 
of her party were captured by Bristol sailors. Amaury was imprisoned 
and King Edward meanly and unchivalrously, caused Eleanor to be de- 
tained in captivity, as one of the queen's household. Llewelyn sent 
many messages to the king, with the view of obtaining the release of his 
bride and forming a durable peace, but they were fruitless. 

Border hostilities opened in 1276, and in November of that year, Ed- 
ward formally declared war against Llewelyn and invaded Wales 
with three armies; one of which the king personally commanded. Llew- 
elyn was finally surrounded in the mountains of Snowdon and compelled 
to submit. The Treaty of Conway was signed, which completely undid 
the work of 1267 and reduced Llewelyn almost to the position of a baron. 
He agreed to pay 50000 marks indemnity and the larger portion of the 
principality passed from his sway. His brothers Davyd and Owain 
were granted lands by the king, in this settlement. 

Later the king remitted the fine and about Christmas time 1278, the 
king allowed the marriage of Llewelyn and Eleanor to take place. 
Eleanor died in childbirth in 1280, leaving a daughter named Gwenllian, 



so THE YALES AND WALES 

and the loss of his wife tended to estrange Llewelyn from the English 
court, while the complaints of oppression from the Welsh people also 
embittered him; however no formal rupture of peace occurred, until in 
1282. 

Llewelyn and Davyd, his brother, had become reconciled to each 
other and a general uprising seems to have been agreeded upon, through- 
out North and South Wales; mainly to contend against the substitution of 
Norman-English laws for the Welsh lawsof Howel Da. The campaign 
was commenced by Davyd, who suddenlj^ attacked and took Ha warden 
castle and captured Roger Clifford, the Justiciar. Llewelyn at once 
crossed the Conway and ravaged the country up to Chester itself, and 
besieged Rhuddlan and Flint. Also, almost simultaneously, the chiefs 
among the southern barons, Gruffyd ab Maredyd and Rhys ab Maelgwn, 
took Aberystwyth, burned the castle and destroyed the ramparts 
around the town. The Archbishop of Canterbury attempted to intercede, 
but Llewelyn and the king could not agree on the terms, and King 
Edward marched into Gwyned at the head of his army and Llewelyn 
and his allies were finally defeated, and Llewelyn was killed on De- 
cember 10th 1282, near Buallt Castle, by a force commanded b}'^ Sir Ed- 
mund Mortimer. His head was sent to Edward and it was afterwards 
exhibited in London. He is usually regarded as the last Cymric Prince 
of Wales, and this view is literally true, for he was the last lineal de- 
scendent of Rhodri Ma\vr, who ruled over the whole, or nearly the 
whole of the ancient kingdom of Gwyned and Wales. However to his 
brother Davj^d III., must be technically accorded the melancholy honor, 
of being the last ruling Welsh prince, if we except the temporary success 
of Owen Glyndwr many 3^ears later. 

Davyd was in command in Snowdon, when Llewelyn was killed, 
and he was at once acknowledged as their prince, by the Welsh barons. 
For a time he held out, but was finally betraj^ed into the king's hands 
and was imprisoned at Rhuddlan castle. The Welsh barons now sur- 
rendered and Wales was finally completely and firmly in English hands 
and has so remained to this day, with the exception of the several years 
when Owen Glyndwr was in power in the principality. 

Davyd was tried as a baron of England, by a Parliament held at 
Shrewsbury; was convicted, and on October 3d 1283, was hanged, drawn 
and quartered. 



HISTORY OF WALES 51 

Edward's brutal treatment of the remains of Llewelyn and his 
harsh dealing- with Davj'd, was long- remembered by the Welsh, in hatred 
and abhorrence. 

Thus on the death of Llewelyn III. (Llewelyn ab Gruffyd) and 
Davyd III. ( Davyd ab Gruffj^d), we have seen the end of Welsh indepen- 
dence, the final closing- of the affairs of Wales as a separate nation; 
and more than this:— it brought to a finale, the rule of one of the very 
oldest of the reig-ning- families of western Kurope — a family that could 
trace its orig-in to the time when Britain still formed a part of the Roman 
Empire, and which had, with some brief intervals, ruled in Gwyned, 
and in other sections of Wales; also at times over the whole of it, as well 
as over the ancient British nation, which comprised about all of western 
Eng-land and Scotland and included Whales, for nearly nine hundred 
years. The Britons were singularly devoted and loyal to this long line 
of kings and princes and their memory is greatly revered and cherished 
to this day. During this long period these Cymric kings or princes of 
the line of Cuneda, at various times, beginning with the reign of Alfred 
the Great in England, paid personal homage to the Saxon, Norman and 
English kings; but this did not involve any authority of these foreign 
kings in the administration of the national affairs, or laws, of the Cymric 
nation. It was personal onlj^ and the custom was doubtless begun in 
Alfred's time, for purposes of alliance against the Danes. The formality 
w^as not always practiced however, as some of these Cymric rulers neg- 
lected to perform the honor. 

There is not in all history, another such example of prolonged, per- 
sistent and tenacious resistance of a nation or people, against a vastly 
more numerous and powerful foe, as this desperate struggle of these 
Britons for nearly nine hundred years, for the maintenance of their in- 
dependence, and it is interesting to surmise what might have been the 
reward of such a people, had they refrained from their almost continual 
fighting among themselves and conserved their strength for their foreign 
enemies. 

Edward I. did not add to England the Welsh possessions which he 
had now gained by conquest; the principality was still maintained, but 
annexed to the English Crown; and in 1301 his son Edward, who was 
born in Wales, and who became his successor, as Edward II., was 
created "Prince of Wales," and it became the custom, (which has been 



52 THE YALES AND WALES 

maintained to this day) , for the King- of Eng-land to grant the principality 
to the heir to the English Crown, and therefore the Prince of Wales, 
is always, the heir presumptive to the Throne of England. 

Edward resolved to make his hold on Wales secure and immediately 
built several g^reat castles, of which Carnarvon is the best known exam- 
ple; and he also encouraged the settlement of English traders and art- 
isans in the principality. 

While the English authority in Wales was now supreme, they could 
not change the customs and language of these obstinate and perservering 
Britons, and even to this day, the predominant spoken language in 
Wales is Brythonic, (Welsh). 

As we have stated, the independence of Wales ended with the suc- 
cesses of Edward I. and it has remained under the government of Eng- 
land to the present time, except for a period of about seven years in the 
early part of the fiifteenth century, during which Owen Glyndwr 
(Owen Glendower) was the real ruler over the principality. There is 
however much satisfaction, from a Welsh view-point, in the fact, that a 
descendant of Cuneda, a prince of Welsh blood, who came of the line of 
the South Wales princes, finally'' became king of England and Wales, 
in the person of Henry Tudor (The Earl of Richmond), who became 
Henry VII. and king of England, after his victory over Richard III. on 
Bosworth Field, August 22d, 1485. Henry was the first of the Tudor 
dynasty of England and was son of Edmund Tudor and grandson of 
Owen Tudor, a Welsh knight, who was a great-grandson of (C 32) 
Thomas ap Llewelyn ap Rhys, a decendent of the Princes of South 
Wales. Henry VII. was succeeded by his son Henry VIII. April 21, 
1509. Then came the son of the latter, Edward VI., who was king in 
1547-1553, and following him was Mary I., (Bloody MarjO, who was a 
daughter of Henry VIII. She was queen, July 13, 1553 to 1558, and 
was succeeded by Elizabeth, another daughter of Henry VIII, the last 
and most prominent of the Tudor dynasty and one of the most illustrious 
and very greatest, of the rulers of Great Britain; who was queen, 1558- 
1603. Elizabeth was as stated, the last of the so-called Tudor dj^nasty; 
however all the long line of kings and queens of England after Elizabeth 
were decendents of the first Tudor king, Henry VII. , and so also is the 
present king, Edward VII.

HISTORY OP WALES 53 

properly be stated, that there is nothing- more of great importance to 
record , in a brief history of "Wales, except tlie stirring- events of Owen 
Glyndvvr's memorable rebellion. 



OWEN GLYNDWR. 

Owen Glyndwr and his brother, (A. C, D, 34) Tudor Glyndwr, 
(Tudor ap Griffith Vychan), who was associated with him in the rebel- 
lion, were direct decendents in the male line, of the celebrated Bledyn 
AB Cynfyn, Prince of Powys and also for a time of Gwyned; whose 
career has been briefly given, in the preceding pages; and on their moth- 
er's side from Prince Llewelyn, the last British Prince of all Wales, 
also from, Rhys ab Tewdwr, Prince of South Wales. 

Bledyn ab Cynfyn had a son, Maredyd ab Bledyn, who died in 
1129 or 1130, and he had a son Madog ab Maredyd (Madoc ap Meredith), 
who died in 1157, and left a son, (A 26) Gruffyd ab Madog (Griffith ap 
Madoc), who inherited Lower Powys, or Powys Fadog. This Gruffyd 
AB Madog had a son (A 27) Madog ab Gruffyd (Madoc ap Griffith), 
who in the year 1200 founded the beautiful Abbey of Valle Crucis, the 
ruins of which, stand in one of the loveliest nooks of the Vale of Llan- 
gollen and presents one of the most exquisite pictures of the kind in 
Britain. Beneath its grass grown aisles lies the dust of this chieftain 
of Powys. 

On a conical hill rising some eight hundred feet above the ruins of 
the Abbey, stands the ruins of Castle Dinas Bran, the most proudly 
perched mediaeval fortress in Wales and perhaps in all Britain. Here 
in this eagles nest, swung twixt earth and heaven, lived the Princes of 
Powys Fadog, and Lords of Bromfield and Yale. 

Madog ab Gruffyd, the founder of the Abbey, had a son, (A 28) 
Gruffyd ab Madog (Griffith ap Madoc), who was also grandson on the 
maternal side of Owain Gwyned, Prince of North Wales, and who died 
in 1270 and was interred in Valle Crucis Abbey. He had at times been 
on friendly terms with the English king, and at other times was in alli- 
ance with the Welsh. He married Emma, daughter of James, Lord 
Audley, who had done great service for Henry III. against the Welsh, 
with a body of German cavalry. Madoc ap Griffith, one of the sons of 
Griffith and Emma followed, and he died leaving two young sons Llew- 



54 THE YALES AND WALES 

elyn and Griffith to whom he left his inheritance, dividing- it between 
them. The elder Llewelyn, had Dinas Bran, with the lordships of Yale 
and Bromfield; while Griffith had Chirk castle and the territory attached 
to it. 

These two boys were by the law, wards of King- Edward I., and he 
placed them in the custody of the great marcher barons, "Warren Morti- 
mer and Rog-er Mortimer. Warren had Llewelyn and Roger had Griffith. 
The two boys soon disappeared and a black tale is told of a deep pool in 
the Dee, beneath Holt castle, and a midnig-ht tragedy therein enacted. At 
any rate, the boys were seen no more and the Earls, according to custom, 
succeeded to their estates. It seems, however, that the conscience of Earl 
Warren was stirred later on, to in some measure atone for the outrage 
he had perpetrated upon the family, as he petitioned the king, while at 
Rhuddlen in 1282, to have the manors of Glyndyfrdwy, on the Dee be- 
yond Llangollen, and of Cynllaeth, a few miles to the south of it, re- 
stored to (A 29) Griffith, an uncle of the two boys who had so myster- 
iously disappeared. This Griffith was another son of that Griffith 
AP Madoc who had married Emma, the daughter of Lord Audley. 

In this manner Griffith succeeded to these estates, and he was 
known as Y. Baron Gwyn or "the White Baron," Lord of Gljmdyfrdwy 
in Yale. He died about the year 1300. Fourth in direct descent from 
him, and occupying the same position, was (A 33) Griffith Vychan, 
the father of Owen Glyndwr and Tudor Glyndwr. 

Such was the parentage and ancestry of Owen and his brother 
Tudor, through their father. 

On their mother's side their descent was also quite as distinguished. 
Owen stated that their mother, Elen, or Eleanor, was a great-grand- 
daughter of the Princess Catherine, the daughter of the last Prince 
Llewelyn, who was the last British Prince of Wales, and no doubt she 
was, as it is unlikely that Owen could be mistaken about it, and the 
statement is confirmed by Burke's Peerage (Mostyn), Page 1173 (1906 
Ed.) But be this as it may, she also came from other princely stock. 
She was a daughter of (C 32) Thomas ap Llewelyn ap Rhys, a descen- 
dent of the Sovereign Prince of South Wales and Lord of Iscoede Vchir- 
wen in Cardigan and of Trefgarn in the parish of Brawdy, Pembroke- 
shire. Elen's sister, Margaret, another daughter of Thomas ap 
Llewelyn ap Rhys, was the wife of Tudor ap Gronow, of Pen- 



OWEN GLYNDWR 55 

mynydd, and they were the grand parents of the famous Owen Tudor 
from whom the Tudor Kings and Queens of England were descended. 
Thus it will be seen, that Thomas ap Llewelyk ap Rhys, was the 
ancestor of Owen Glyndwr and Tudor Glyndwr, and also of the pres- 
ent king of England, Edward VII. 

Shakespeare in his Henry IV. depicts Owen Glyndwr as a Wild 
Welsh chieftain, but on the contrary he was a polished, educated gen- 
tleman of princely birth and accustomed to king's courts and military 
associations. He was a student at Law at the Inns of Court of London. 
After receiving his education he seems to have taken up the profession of 
arms at the English court, and later on he became, certainly, squire of 
the body to Henry Bolingbroke who afterwards became Henry IV; and 
it seems strange that men so intimately acquainted and linked together 
in a relationship so intimate as these two were, should later engage in 
such a long and bitter war, as the Welsh rebellion under Owen's lead- 
ership involved. 

Some Welsh authorities state that Owen was also squire of the 
body, to Richard II. during the later years of his reign: and it is likely 
he was, after Henry was banished to France in 1398. He is said to have 
been present when Richard II was made a prisoner by Henry at Flint 
castle, and if he was, he must have viewed the proceedings with feelings 
of sorrow and regret, for he was at that time an intimate friend of both. 

Owen, being the eldest son, born in 1359, had succeeded to the estates 
of Glyndyfrdwy and Cynllaeth, (or Sycherth), and through his mother 
he had also inherited property in Pembroke. The two former estates 
were close together, if they did not actually join, and there were man- 
sions on each. Glyndyfrdwy was the most important property, but 
Sycherth or Sychnant was the most imposing edifice. It comprised a 
gate house, a strong tower and a moat. The main house contained nine 
halls, each with a wardrobe filled with the raiment of Owen's retainers. 
Near the house, on a verdant bank, was a wooden building supported 
on posts and roofed with tiles, containing eight apartments for the 
guests. There was also a church in the form of a cross, and several 
chapels. The mansion was surrounded with every convenience and 
ever}'^ essential, for the maintenance of profuse hospitality: a park, war- 
ren and pigeon house, mill, orchards and vineyard; a w*ell stocked fish 
pond, a heronry and plenty of game of all sorts; and it is stated that the 



56 THE YALES AND WALES 

hospitality of the establishment was so great, that the office of gate 
porter was a sinecure. A tumulus, called "Glyndwr's Mount" crowned 
by a group of fir trees, marks the location of this famous place: along 
the railroad about five minutes westward from Glyndyfrdwy station, 
where the river Dee makes a sudden bend to the north. It is perched 
high, and nearly overhangs the railroad. 

The Commote of Glyndyfrdwy, which formed Owen's Dee property 
lay in the then newly formed countj^ of Merioneth, though on the east it 
was wedged in by the Marcher lordships of Chirk, Bromfield and Yale; 
while on the north it touched the Norman lordships of Ruthin and Den- 
bigh. His rent roll was about two hundred pounds a year, which was 
very large for those days, and he was probably one of the richest native 
Welshmen of his times, and all of the contemporary bards unite in 
praise of his hospitality. 

A strip of land known as the Common of Croesau, lay between the 
Dee valley and the water shed of the Clwyd, It wa? claimed by Owen, 
and also by Reginald, Lord Grey, of Ruthin, and was the primary 
cause of Owen Glyndwr's rebellion. It originally belonged to Owen's 
estate, but was seized by Lord Grey. Owen appealed to Richard II. 
and the case was decided in his favor; but later when Henry IV. was 
king. Lord Grey again seized it, and when Owen once more took his 
case to the king, Henry refused to even listen to his plea, and Grey was 
permitted to remain in possession. But this was not the only outrage 
Grej' perpetrated upon him. About this time the king was preparing for 
his expedition against the Scots, in July 1400, and among the noblemen 
and gentlemen summoned to his standard was, Owen Glyndwr. This 
summons was sent through Lord Grey, who kept Owen in ignorance of it 
until it was too late, to either join the kings army or send an explana- 
tion; and on this account Owen was adjudged a rebel at the English 
court. Owen seems to have remained quietly on his estates, however, 
for sometime afterwards, although a few of his Welsh contemporaries 
were at this time making some trouble for the Norman and English 
barons in their midst, and giving evidence of a general unrest and 
spirit of retaliation among the people. They only needed a leader to 
make a general uprising an actual fact, and this leader was soon to be 
found, in the person of Owen Glyndwr, then the leading and most influ- 
ential and popular Welshman in North Wales. Lord Grey of Ruthin 



OWEN GLYNDWR 57 

castle, seems to have determined to take advantage of Ow^en's unfavor- 
able standing- at court at this time and perhaps designed to seize his 
estates. At any rate he collected his forces and joined them with his 
brother, Earl Talbot of Chirk castle, and they suddenly attacked Owen 
at one of his manors, (it is uncertain whether it was at Glyndyfrdwy or 
Sycherth), and he only had time to escape to the neighboring woodlands 
before it was surrounded. Owen's two manors were about seven or 
eight miles apart and separated by the Berwyn mountains. 

This attack was the last drop needed to fill this Welshman's cup of 
bitterness to the brim, and it was an evil day for Grey, as well as for 
his master Henry IV., when this lion was finally hunted from his lair. 
This gallant and experienced fighter of princely blood was just the 
leader the Welsh people needed at this time, to set in action their already 
high strung desire for war. He was a chief after their own heart, and 
most important of all was the fact that in his veins flowed the blood of 
the Princes of Powys, of South Wales and of Elewelyn the Great. He 
was the right man to lead them and also to stir up the enthusiasm and 
rouse the long crushed patriotism, of an emotional and martial race. 

Owen stepped at once to the front and was hailed with acclama- 
tion, as their leader, and promptly raised his standard: the ancient Red 
Dragon of Wales, upon a white ground. He was at this time forty-one 
years of age, handsome, brave, experienced and able. The hardj^ 
mountaineers flocked to his support with their bows and spears and so 
also did the courageous and tough warlike sons of Wales, come from the 
valleys, vales and uplands, ready to contest against their country's 
wrongs. 

Thus, in the year 1400, was begun the decade of strife which deso- 
lated Wales and embittered the life of Henry IV. of England. Nothing 
is known of the real cause of the personal emnity between Henry IV. 
and Owen, which seems to have been evidenced just previous to this time, 
but it must have been something radical and unforgivable, to break the 
long, intimate and close friendship of these two. In any event, to Lord 
Grey, of the great Red Castle of Ruthin, is accorded the undesirable 
honor, of being the immediate instigator of this devastating war. 

In the van of the hosts gathering to Owen's standard, came the Welsh 
bards, with their harps, and carrying also the bent bow, which was 
symbolic of war; and to them indeed Owen owed, in great measure, the 



58 THE YALES AND WALES 

swift and universal recognition, which made him at once the man of the 
hour. They persuaded themselves that their deliverance from the Saxons 
was at hand, and saw in the valiant figure of Owen Glyndwr,the fulfil- 
ment of the ancient prophecies, that a Welsh prince should once again 
wear the "Crown of Britain." 

Owen naturally made his first attack on his relentless enemy, Dord 
Grey of Ruthin. He fell on the little town and made a clean sweep of 
the stock and valuables; thence he passed eastward and crossed the 
English border, spreading panic everywhere; harrying and burning the 
properity of the English and their sj^mpathizers. He invaded western 
Shropshire, capturing castles and burning houses; in fact threatened 
Shrewsbury itself. 

In the meantime the king who had effected nothing in the north 
against the Scots, learned of the warlike events in Wales and promptly 
turned about and hastened southward. He reached Northampton Sept. 
14, 1400 and promptly summoned his sheriffs of the midland and border 
counties, to join him at once with their troops, to quell the insurrection 
in Wales. He marched at once to Shrewsbury and thence into Wales. 
Naturally neither Henrj^ or his soldiers knew anything about Welsh 
campaigning or of Welsh tactics and they expected an easy victory. 
They little realized what an indomitable and wily foe they were to con- 
tend with, and in this first campaign they did not even get sight of them; 
however they got out of the country without feeling the pricks of their 
spears, which is more than can be said of later invasions. The only 
success attained in this first campaign was the plundering of the Abbey 
of Llanfaes, and the invasion is designated by authorities as a "prome- 
nade." Henry however on his return to England declared Owen's 
estates confiscated and bestowed them on his own half-brother, the Earl 
of Somerset; but many years were to elapse before any English noble- 
man dared take possession of them. On November 20th a general pardon 
was offered to all except Owen; but only a very few took any notice of 
it. It is due King Henry however to state, that he was inclined to greater 
clemency at this time, than the Parliament. 

During the succeeding winter Owen was carefully and wisely 
making his plans, and the enthusiasm of the day was spreading through- 
out the land and reached even to the colleges of England, where there 
were many Welsh students. At Oxford many Welshmen put aside 



OWEN GLYNDWR 59 

their books and stole home to join Owen's standard, filled with the glow 
of rekindled patriotism. 

In the early spring- of 1401, William and Rhys ap Tudor, of the ever 
famous stock of Penmynydd, took the great castle at Conway by strategy, 
with forty followers. William andRhj^s were among Owen Glyndwr's 
most trusted lieutenants; however William, who retained command in 
Conway, was finally starved into submission by Henry Percy (Hotspur), 
who was then Justice of North Wales for the king. By the terms of sur- 
render, William ap Tudor retired from the fortress, leaving nine hos- 
tages in Henr5^'s hands, who promptl}^ put them to death after the usual 
brutal fashion of the time. 

In the meantime Owen had turned his attention to the south. South 
Wales had hitherto not shown much desire to rise; but when the now 
renowned Glj^ndwr raised his Dragon standard on the summit of Plin- 
limmon, there was prompt response in men and arms. He now fell with 
a heavy hand on this southern country, and almost in the beginning of 
this campaign, fought a battle which aroused great enthusiasm and 
brought almost every wavering Welshman to his support. It seems he 
was encamped on the summit of Mynydd Hyddgant, with less than 500 
men and was surrounded during the night, by 1500 Flemings. Owen 
promptly took the lead of his troops, and fell upon the enemy with such 
fury, that he and most of his men cut their way out, leaving 200 dead 
Flemings on the mountain side. 

During this entire summer of 1401, Owen was fighting and ravaging 
throughout South and Mid- Wales; castles here and there were taken 
and New Radnor, under Sir John Grendor, was stormed and taken, 
and the sixty defenders were hung on the ramparts, by way of encour- 
agement to others to yield. He also destroyed the noble abbey of Cwm- 
hir about this time, doubtless on account of the animosity of the Church 
to his success, and swept on down the Severn Valley; being finally 
halted by the great Red Castle of Powys, from which he was repulsed, 
after much hard fighting and the destruction of the suburbs of the town. 

In the meantime Henry Percy (Hotspur) had abandoned North 
Wales and, now in August 1401, throughout all of North, South and 
Mid-Wales, so far as the open country was concerned, the rule of Owen 
Glyndwr was supreme, from the English border to the sea. 

The English and King Henry were panic-stricken by these events 



€0 THE YALES AND WALES 

and an invasion of Wales on a large scale was planned at once. The 
king- and Prince Henrj^, with a large army, entered Wales in October, 
but after much weary marching without being able to bring Owen to an 
engagement, they were compelled to retreat to Shrewsbury, where the 
army was disbanded before the end of the same month. They lost much 
of their equipment in this campaign, through the harrying of Owen's 
troops; and the only results attained were the destruction of the Abbey 
of Ystradfflur, where eleven Welsh Princes, of the twelfth and thir- 
teenth centuries, were interred, the execution of an eminent Welsh gen- 
tleman and patriot, Lleweljm ab Griffith Vychan of Caj'O, who had 
purposely misled the army, and the capture of one thousand Welsh 
children. 

Following these events Owen moved into North Wales and early in 
November attacked the great English castle of Carnarvon. Its garrison 
had, however, been reinforced and he was repulsed with a loss of 300 
men. Owen soon afterwards went into winter quarters at Glyndyfr- 
dwy, with his captains and bards. The castle Dinas Bran, then pos- 
sessed by the English Earl of Arundel, was in plain sight, and the 
great Chirk castle, in English hands, was less than a dozen miles away; 
however, the whole country, outside of the castles, was openly or secret- 
ly, in sympathy with Owen, and the movement had now become national. 
There was nothing to check the songs and revelry, which sounded high 
above the breakers of the Dee, in the long winter nights, in Owen's 
quarters. 

During December, Owen made a dash upon Harlech castle, but it 
was saved to the king for the time, by reinforcements from Chester, con- 
sisting of 400 archers and 100 men-at-arms. However a more satis- 
factory expedition to Ruthin, in January 1402, resulted in the defeat 
and capture of Owen's old enemy, Lord Grey, whose force was cut to 
pieces by Ow^en's followers. Grey was confined in the castle of Dolba- 
dam, in the Snowdon mountains, and his ransom was set at ten thousand 
marks. He was held by Owen for nearly a year, when he was released 
on payment down of six thousand marks and the guaranty of the re- 
maining four thousand, by placing hostages in Owen's hands, among 
which was his eldest son; Grey was also compelled to agree to never 
bear arms against Owen, during the remainder of his life. This set- 
tlement was arranged with Owen, by the king, through a commission, 
and it is stated it left Grey a poor man as long as he lived.

"Glyndwr's Mount." 



This tumulus is the site of the mansion of Glyndyfrdwy, one of the 
two mansions on the estates of Owen Glyndwr. It is near the railroad 
about five minutes to the westward of Glyn^lyfr dwj' st itioii in North 
Wales. The site of the other maiision, called Sycherth, lies in a mead- 
ow, between a wooded hill and the Cynllaeth brook, near Llansilin, and 
is conspicuous from the road leading- up the valley to the little hamlet. 

Griffith Vychan, the father of (Jwen Glyndwr and his brother Tu- 
dor Glyndwr (Tudor ap Griffith Vychan), was the lord of these es- 
tates, and on his death they passed to Owen, the elde->t son. They 
had been in possession of the family from the time their princely ances- 
tors were dispossessed of their sovereign authority. 



OWEN GLYNDWR 61 

In the meantime Owen and Henry Percy (Hotspur) had met, and it 
seems some understanding-, which had bearing- on future events, was 
arranged. Owen also at this time was in communication with the King 
of Scotland and the native chieftains of Ireland, as well as the King of 
France; with the object of forming alliances ag-ainst the English King. 
His messengers bearing his letters, to King- Robert of Scotland and to 
the Irish chieftains, were however captured and beheaded. The letter 
to Robert of Scotland is of much interest and it is given in full as fol- 
lows: 

"Most high and Mighty and redoubted Lord and Cousin, I commend 
me to your most High and Royal Majesty, humbly as it beseemeth me 
with all honour and reverence. Most redoubted Lord and Sovereign 
Cousin, please it you and your most high Majesty to know that Brutus, 
\'Our most noble ancestor and mine, which was the first crowned King- 
who dwelt in this realm of England, which of old times was called 
Great Britain. The which Brutus begat three sons; to wit, Albanact; 
Locrine, and Camber, from which same Albanact you are descended in 
direct line. And the issue of the same Camber reigned loyally down to 
Cadwalladar, who was the last crowned King of the people, and from 
whom I, your simple Cousin am descended in direct line; and after 
whose decease, I and my ancestors and all my said people have been 
and still are, under the tryanny and bondage of mine and your mortal 
enemies, the Saxons: whereof you most redoubted Lord and very Sover- 
eign Cousin, have good knowledge. And from this tj^ranny and bond- 
age the prophecy saith that I shall be delivered by the help and succour 
of your Royal Majesty. But most redoubted Lord and Sovereign Cousin, 
I make a grevious plaint to your Royal Majesty, and most Sovereign 
Cousinship, that it faileth me much in soldiers, therefore most redoubted 
Lord and very Sovereign Cousin, I humbly beseech you kneeling upon 
my knees, that it may please your Royal Majesty to send me a certain 
number of soldiers, who may aid me and withstand, with God's help, 
mine and your enemies, having regard most redoubted Lord and very 
Sovereign Cousin to the chastisement of this mischief and of all the many 
past mischiefs which I and my ancestors of Wales have suffered at the 
hands of mine and your mortal enemies. And be it understood, most 
redoubted Lord and very Sovereign Cousin that I shall not fail all the 
days of my life to be bounden to do your service and to repay you. And 
in that I cannot send unto you all my business in writing", I send these 
present bearers fully informed in all things, to whom be pleased to give 
faith and belief in what they shall say to you by word of mouth. From 
myCourt, most redoubted Lord and very Sovereign Cousin, may the Al- 
mighty Lord have j'ou in his keeping." 

Written in North Wales on the twenty-ninth day of November (1401). 



62 THE YALES AND WALES 

Sometime in the earlj' part of 1402, Owen moved down the Vale of 
Clw3'd, making- a final clearance of Lord Grey's property, and descend- 
ing with a merciless hand upon Saint Asaph, destro3'ing the cathedral, 
the bishop's palace and the canon's house. Trevor was then the bishop 
and he had been friendly to the English. 

About this time occured the famous personal encounter between 
Owen and his cousin Howel Sele the Lord of Nannau. Howel had not 
been friendly to Owen's cause, but the latter was induced, by the abbot 
of Cymmer, to visit him at Nannau, with the hope of promoting a better 
understanding. Owen came with only a few attendants and during 
the day, the two went for a stroll in the park, Howel who was a cele- 
brated marksman with the bow, carried this weapon with him, and 
Owen, seeing a buck through the trees suggested that his cousin trj'^ his 
skill; Howel bent his bow and pretended to take aim, but suddenly 
swung around and discharged his arrow full at Owen's breast. He, 
however, had a coat of mail beneath his tunic and the shaft fell harm- 
lessly to the ground. The fate of Howel was swift and terrible and 
Owen at once burned the house at Nannau to the ground. It is said, 
that no one but Owen and his companion, Madog, knew of the exact 
vengence meted out to Howel. He never returned and his real fate was 
unknown to his family and followers for many j'^ears afterwards. How- 
ever, one tempestuous evening in November, long years later, a lone 
horseman was seen urging his flagging steed up the hights of Nannau, 
and it proved to be Madog; who after the death of the fiery yet generous 
Glyndwr, was hastening to fuUfiU his last command and disclose the 
resting place of Howel's remains. He pointed out a great hollow oak 
tree, which had been the last resting place of the remains of the lord of 
Nannau. This tree was afterwards known as the "hollow oak of 
demons" and the "Haunted Oak". It fell on July 13, 1813 from sheer 
age and measured at that time twenty-seven feet and four inches in cir- 
cumference. Sir Walter Scott in his "Marmion," has helped to immor- 
talize this memorable combat between Owen and Howel. 

While these events were taking place the Scots were at war with 
the English in the north and were confronted bj' Henry Percj-, who was 
a host in himself, in the defence of the English border. 

Owen was having things about his own waj' in Wales, and late in 
May 1402, with a large force, defeated and captured Edmund Mortimer, 



OWEN GLYNDWR 63 

uncle and g-uardian of his nephew, Edmund Mortimer, (the Earl of 
March), who was the le^al heir to the English throne. Eleven hundred 
English men, including" g"reat numbers of knights, were slaughtered in 
this battle, which occured in a narrow valley below Pilleth Hill, near 
Knighton. King Henry refused to ransom Mortimer, which greatly 
incensed Henry Percy (Hotspur), Mortimers brother-in-law, and the 
great Percy left the Kings presence in anger, and as it happened never 
to return. 

Owen followed up the great victory of Pilleth, and strong in its 
prestige, went burning and ravaging, fiercely through Glamorgan and 
fell upon Cardiff, destroying the whole town except a street where stood 
a religious house of his friends, the Franciscans, thence he went to the 
north and invested the three great castles of Carnarvon, Harlech and 
Criccieth. These events brought to his dragon standard, many waver- 
ing Welshmen, who hitherto had not heartily welcomed it with its 
accompaniment of flaming torches and pitiless spears. 

King Henry was greatly aroused and disturbed by Owens achieve- 
ments; and although the Scots, with French allies, were strongly press- 
ing his forces under Henry Percy in the north and his son Prince 
Thomas, viceroy in Ireland, was reduced by want of money, to sore 
straits, he was bent upon raising a great army to subdue Wales. He 
in fact assembled three great armies, which on August 27th 1402 were 
assembled at Chester, Shrewsbury and Hereford, under the commands 
of the Prince of Wales, (the kings son,) the king himself, and the Earl 
of Warwick, respectively. In all there were one hundred thousand men 
and they crossed the border into Wales the first week in September. 

Henry had learned of Owen's power of "calling spirits from the 
vasty deep," to his aid, and in less than a week he was convinced that 
he was the very devil himself. No one had ever before seen such ter- 
rible weather, as now descended upon Henry's troops, and by Septem- 
ber 22, 1402 there was not an Englishman in Wales, outside of the few 
castles which still remained in their hands. The vast army had been 
beaten and driven out of Wales, without the prick of a single Welsh 
spear, or the flight of a solitary arrow. Henry Percy, had in the mean- 
time, been fighting the Scots and had defeated them in a great battle 
and captured eighty noblemen and knights, including the Earl Douglas 
himself. King Henry learned of his victory, at once upon his return in 



64 THE YALES AND WALES 

defeat from "Wales, and he promptly sent congratulations to Percy, but 
demanded that the Scottish prisoners be delivered to him. This order 
enraged Hotspur and he refused to comply. 

Soon after these events some sort of an alliance was formed betw^een 
Owen Glyndwr, Henry Percy (Hotspur) and Edmund Mortimer — who, 
as will be recalled was a prisoner in Owen's hands — for attacking 
Henry IV. of England; and in the meantime Mortimer had married, in 
November 1402, Owen's fourth daughter, Jane. 

Owen, in the fore part of 1403, summoned representatives from all 
Wales, to gather for a parliament at, Machynlleth. There were four 
from each "Cantref. " Owen was by this assembly crowned the "Prince 
of Wales" and seated on the throne. The persons attending this assem- 
bly were not all friends, however, and there was at least one who went 
there expressly to assassinate Owen. This was Davy Gam, who at one 
time, had been a member of King Henry's household. His intentions 
were discovered and he was cast into a dungeon, where he remained 
many years, being nevertheless eventually freed. Owen in the mean- 
time, however, burned and destroyed his property. 

Owen Glyndwr was now in actual and complete possession of all 
Wales, except some few strong castles which were yet held by the Eng- 
lish; however the garrisons of the castles had no influence outside. Ow^en 
was the real and actual ruler in Wales at this time. His troops were 
successfully besieging the great castles of Harlech and Carnarvon and 
he felt sure of their ultimate fall, and during the early summer of 1403 
turned his attention to South Wales, where he was engaged against the 
remaining English power in that quarter, when in May 1403, Prince 
Henrj^ made a raid from Shrewsbury and burned Owen's two mansions 
at Glyndyfrdwy and Sycherth. 

Owen was also, certainly, still busily engaged in South Wales, 
nearly a hundred miles away from Shrewsbury, about the time of the 
great battle between Henry Percy and King Henry, at that place. 
There is no doubt that there had been an understanding, between the 
Percy's and Owen Gljmdwr and Edmund Mortimer, to act in unison 
against King Henry; but Hotspur's messengers must have failed to 
reach Owen; as he was negotiating with Carew of Pembroke, on July 
12, 1403, and for several days afterwards, was busily engaged before 
the castle of Dynevor. He had no thought at that time of leaving South 




Old I^odge (Near where the old "Oak of Demons" stood) at 
Nannau, near Dolg-elly, North Wales. It was here that Owen Glyn- 
dwr slew Howel Sele, the lord of Nannau, in their memorable encounter. 




Looking- up the Mawddach from Nannau. 



OWEN GLYNDWR 65 

Wales, and he certainly knew nothing- of the impending- battle between 
"Hotspur" and Henry; yet he was likely expecting messages from Hot- 
spur, as he undoubtedly contemplated invading England in conjunction 
with the Percys. He is represented by some writers, as being within 
sight of the battle of Shrewsbury while it was going- on, but he was 
certainly far away in South Wales at the time and in ig-norance of the 
fact that Hotspur so sorely needed his aid. Hotspur and his ally. Earl 
Douglas, with an army of 15,000 men, was confronted with a force twice 
as large under the command of the King-, and after one of the most des- 
perate and bloody battles that ever occurred on English soil, the lion- 
hearted Percy was signally defeated and slain, July 21, 1403. 

The loss of the battle of Shrewsbury was a great blow to Owen's 
cause and it is interesting to imagine, how different the subsequent 
history of Great Britain might have been, had Percy's messeng-ers 
reached Owen, so he could have stood with him at Shrewsbury, with 
ten thousand Welsh spears. 

Anyway by the time King Henry was ready for another invasion of 
Wales in September, 1403, Owen was as strong as ever, and had in the 
meantime invaded Herefordshire England, with success. On the 15th of 
September, Henry invaded Wales and reached Carmarthen, but almost 
at once retreated and returned to Hereford and thence to London, having 
accomplished nothing, and Owen's troops again poured over the borders 
into England and ravaged Herefordshire. 

The number of Owen's troops have been variously estimated. It is 
said however he had 30,000 archers and spearmen in Carmarthen at one 
time. The Welsh spears were exceptionally long and his men of 
Merioneth, had an especial reputation for making use of them. 

About this time Owen had made some sort of an alliance with the 
King of France, and French troops were landing- in Wales to aid him; 
but it was not until two years later that the greatest French effort was 
made in his behalf. 

Early in the year 1404 Owen finally captured Harlech castle and it is 
supposed he moved his familj'- there and made it his headquarters. 
Later on he also summoned a parliament to meet at Harlech. On July 
14th, 1404, a treaty of alliance w^as concluded between Owen and the King 
of France and it was signed by their respective ambassadors on that 
date. At this time Owen's council house was at Dolgelly. The seal 



66 THE YALES AND WALES 

which Owen now adopted represents him, with biforked beard, seated on 
a throne-like chair, holding- a scepter in his right hand and a globe in 
his left. (It has lately- been adopted as the corporate arms of Machynl- 
leth). 

By the treaty made, with King Charles of France, Owen was recog- 
nized and acknowledged as the Prince of Wales, by the French King; 
and at the same time Henry IV. was designated: Henry of Lancaster, 
as Charles did not recognize him as the King of England and never had 
done so. 

During 1404, Owen's forces continued the sieges of the castles yet in 
English hands and ravaged again and again the English border counties. 
Two fierce engagements occurred during the summer, between Owen and 
the Earl of Warwick, at Mynj'dd-cwm-du and at Craig-y-dorth. Owen 
was defeated in the former and he himself came near being captured ; 
but in the latter battle he signally defeated the English and forced them 
back over the border. 

Aberystwith castle had fallen to Owen during the year, but Har- 
lech was the seat of his government during the winter of 1404 — 05. On 
its matchless site, some of the ancient British princes in the early cen- 
turies, had built their fortresses: from Bran the Blessed to Maelgwyn. 

With Owen this winter, there were no doubt gathered in majestic 
Harlech, all of his family and near relatives, including his son-in-law 
Edmund Mortimer and his younger brother Tudor Glyndwr, as well 
as his principal captains, and the great Bishop Trevor, who had lately 
came over to his side. His bards, were of course, also there, to entertain 
the distinguished company with their patriotic songs. Owen Glj^ndwr 
was now at the high tide of his power and renown and it is well to state 
here, that to this day he is regarded by the majority of the Welsh people 
as the greatest of the Welsh Princes, from Owen Gwyned to the last 
Llewelyn. 

The opening of the spring of 1405 was now at hand and with this 
season, came the first serious reverses to Owen's arms. His trusted cap- 
tain, the renowned Khj'-s Gethin, with 8000 Welsh troops, moved in March 
1405, to the English border and attacked Grosmont, where Prince Henry 
then was with a strong force. The prince and his followers sallied forth 
from the castle and attacked the Welsh and after a bloody battle com- 
pletely routed them, with a loss of 800 men. 



OWEN GLYNDWR 67 

Owen, learning of this reverse pushed forward fresh forces under 
his brother, (ACD 34) Tudor Glyndwr, and in less than a week they 
met Prince Henry with a large force, at Mynydd-y-Pwll-Melyn, in 
Brecon, and a desperate battle, attended with great slaughter ensued, 
in which the Welsh commander, Tudor Glyndwr himself, was slain, 
and 1500 of his followers were either killed or taken prisoners. Tudor 
was so much like his illustrious brother, in face and form, that the 
English at first thought the much dreaded elder Glyndwr had fallen; 
but the absence of a wart under the left eye, a distinguishing mark of 
Owen, soon disproved their premature conclusion. The slaughter in 
this battle, had perhaps never before been exceeded or equalled in Wales. 
Owens son Gryff3^dd was also taken prisoner at this time and was sent 
to London and confined in the Tower, where a year later the young King 
of Scotland was his companion. 

These two reverses were a great blow to Owen's cause. King Henry 
however was kept busy in the early summer of 1405 by the Scots, and by 
the Earl of Northumberland, who was again in revolt, and who also, 
had been intriguing with O wen. Furthermore a great French expedition, 
consisting of 140 ships and 4000 to 5000 men, appeared in July or August 
of this year and landed at Milford Haven to join Owen's fortunes, and 
he met them at Tenby with 10000 Welshmen at his back. The French 
were nominally under the command of the Marshal of France, but Sire 
de Hugueville was the leading spirit. 

These events seemingly made up for Owen's losses in the two engage- 
ments earlier in the year. 

Owen and his French allies at once invaded England, retaking 
Glamorgan which had recently receded from him, and also capturing 
Carmarthen on the way. The allies pushed on through Herefordshire 
and reached the vicinity of the town of Worcester about the middle of Au- 
gust, where they encamped on the summit of Woodbury hill, still known 
as "Owen's camp." Henry IV. with a large army met them here and 
took an advantageous position on the northern ridge. Each army feared 
'to attack the other in its commanding position and here, in the heart of 
England, these two armies faced each other for eight days, with no 
results except a few skirmishes in which some 500 men fell. Henry had 
recourse to abundant provisions, but the Welsh and French soon ran 
short of supplies and were thus compelled to retreat. The English king- 



68 THE YALES AND WALES 

attempted to follow them, but they promptly captured some of his supplies 
and he then desisted. 

During the next month, about September 10, 1405, Henry again in- 
vaded Wales, but was soon driven out bj' Owen and his soldiers, with 
the aid of the elements, having accomplished practically nothing. 

All except some 1700 of the French returned to their own country be- 
fore Christmas, 1405, but Owen was unmolested by the English during 
that winter and had, as before, practically entire control of Wales. The 
French had counted on booty as their reward, and Owen and the Welsh 
were much disappointed with the results of their expedition, and also 
displeased with their conduct. 

In the meantime, Owen had finally succeeded in subduing Western 
Pembroke, known as "Little England," and the earl agreed to pay him 
^200 for a truce to last until May 1406. 

Owen now again retired to Harlech castle for the winter of 1405 — 
1406. 

The chief event of the early part of 1406, was the signing of the 
"Tripartite Indenture," which has been attributed by Shakespeare 
and others to an earlier date, before the battle of Shrewsbury. 

Theold Earl of Northumberland (Percy), and Bardolph of Scotland, 
met Owen Glyndwr and Edmund Mortimer at Aberdaron, and on the 
28th of February 1406, the notable instrument was signed. By its terms 
thej' were bound into a solemn alliance and they agreed thereby, to 
divide the Kingdom of England and the Principality of Wales between 
themselves. Owen was to have Wales with considerable English terri- 
tory added, and Percy and Mortimer, were to have the remainder of 
England. 

Little came of this understanding, however, and as the j^ear 1406 
advanced Owen's influence and power seemed to decline. Glamorgan 
and Ystrad Towi in the south and Anglesey in the north, fell away 
from him, apparently through weariness of strife and lack of provisions, 
coupled with the offer of pardons from Henry of England. These de- 
fections were, anyway, certainly not due to pressure of English arms. 

During the latter part of 1406 and part of 1407, Owen seems to have 
disappeared to some extent from public view; however his family and 
friends were yet in possession of Harlech castle and he also held

Harlech Castle. 

On the coast of Merioneth, North Wales. 



An ancient British fortress was erected on this site by the early 
British Kings, but the castle represented by the present grand ruins 
was built by Edward I., in 1286, and was seemingly impregnable. It is 
of special interest in this work on account of being Owen Glyndwr's 
headquarters and seat of government for several years, 1404-1408, after 
he had captured it from the English. It is also interesting on account 
of the fact that a kinsman of the Yale ancestors, Davyd ap levan ap 
Einion, was in command of the foi ce which successfully held it for the 
Lancastrians against assault, during the War of the Roses, for nine 
years, surrendering finally on honorable terms in 1468. In response to 
the demand of the Earl of Pembroke for its surrender, when he invested 
it, Davyd said: "I held a castle in France until all the old women in 
Wales heard of it, and now I will hold this Welsh Tower till all the 
old women of PVance hear of it." The "March of the Men of Harlech" 
commemorates this event. 



OWEN GLYNDWR 69 

Aberystwith castle, with a strong- force, and sometime during 1407 he 
made a raid through Pembroke. 

A great attempt was made by the English in the early fall of 1407 
against Aberystwith castle. About all the great English leaders as- 
sembled there, including Prince Henry, the Duke of York and the Earl 
of Warwick; as well as many other notable commanders and thousands 
of knights and men at arms. They brought with them engines of war 
of every then known kind, including the "King's cannon" which 
weighed four and one-half tons. But they were powerless against the 
great castle and the brave Welshmen commanded by Owen's lieutenant, 
Rhys ap Griffith ap Llewelyn. Provisions ran low, however, and in 
September, a truce was agreed upon until November 1st (1407). when 
the Welshmen were to deliver up the castle, unless Glyndwr in the 
meantime should appear and relieve it. Thereupon Prince Henry and 
his nobles returned to England, leaving a force of 500 soldiers on guard. 

During October, just at the right time, Owen appeared upon the 
scene and went into the castle with a fresh force, and remained in pos- 
session of the west coast and its castles during the winter of 1407-1408. 

The summer of 1408 fou«d Owen still active and formidable, but in 
this year Prince Henry renewed the sieges of both Aber3^stwith 
and Harlech and they both fell to the English during the winter of 1408- 
1409, after prolonged and desperate resistance; being in fact starved 
into submission. 

By the fall of Harlech castle, Owen's wife and practically all of 
his family, with the exception of three married daughters then in En- 
gland, fell into the hands of the English and were taken to London. 
Edmund Mortimer, his son-in-law and a member of the Royal family 
of England, had however died during the siege. Owen himself es- 
caped, doubtless still hoping to retrieve his losses and rescue his family. 
He held for a time some castles and strongholds in the Snowdon moun- 
tains, but his sway was now practicallj' at its end, and after some 
desultory skirmishes it reached a final close. Numbers of his brave 
commanders in English hands were executed, including Rhys and 
W^illiam Tudor, who were thus disposed of at Chester. 

Owen Glyndwr's career having reached its melancholy finale he 
retired from public view. He was offered a pardon by Henry V., who 
had succeeded his father on the English throne, but the proud old hero 



70 THE YALES AND WALES 

seems to have refused to accept it and after living- some years in seclu- 
sion, he finally died in peace in the year 1416, at the home of his daughter 
at Monnington in Herefordshire, England, and his body v^^as interred at 
Monnington church. 

Owen had accomplished much, yet in the end the rev^ard was bitter 
failure for his cherished, patriotic aspirations, and a devastated and 
ruined country, which required many years for its up-building and 
recovery, from the desperate, bloody, strife, of nearly a decade. He 
was the absolute and almost undisputed ruler and monarch of all of 
Wales, except a few castles, for about seven years; and for nearly ten 
years he had successfully conducted a war, with a power vastly supe- 
rior in resources of wealth and men, and in fact one of the very g-reatest 
powers of the world at that time, as it is now; and moreover the terri- 
tory for which he was contending was contiguous to this great power 
and therefore within striking distance. 

This was the last attempt, the last struggle, for Welsh indepen- 
dence. From its close, Wales has remained absolutely, if not always 
passively, under the government of the throne of England. Welsh pride 
and Welsh ideals were however in a great measure satisfied, when a 
King of Welsh princely blood ascended the throne of England, in the 
person of Henry VII., the first ruler of the Tudor dynasty, to which we 
have heretofore referred in the preceding- pag-es. 

In concluding this brief history of Wales it seems desirable to refer 
more particularly to some of the places where these Welsh Kings and 
Princes lived, and also where some of the principal events occurred. 

Plates and special remarks are presented herein, of The Town of 
Llangollen, Castle Dinas Bran, Aberj^stwilh Castle, Harlech Castle, 
Sycherth, Carew Castle and Pembroke Castle and of other places as 
well, of which no further description seems required; but there are other 
places of perhaps equal interest, among which are the following: 

Rhuddlan Castle, North Wales, as it now stands, represents the 
great stronghold built by Edward I.; but an earlier stronghold was 
built and occupied on this site by Llewelyn ab Seisyllt, Prince of 
Wales, and his son. There was also an earlier Welsh castle built 
by former Welsh Princes, on a mount called Tuthill, a furlong south of 
the castle. 

Mold and Caergwrle (Hope) castles, and also a fortified Tower near 



OWEN GLYNDWR 71 

Mold, North Wales, were frequently the scenes of British and En^'-lish 
engagements. Mold was razed by Prince Owain Gwyned in 1144, but 
was rebuilt and afterwards was taken and retaken in the struggles of 
the Welsh and English. 

Hawarden Castle, North Wales, was stormed and taken by Prince 
Davyd, brother of the last Prince of Wales, Lleweljm, in 1281, near the 
close of their iinal struggle with the English. Llewelyn and Simon de 
Montfort signed their memorable compact here. 

Denbigh Castle stands on the site of an earlier Welsh castle, held 
by Prince Davyd, as lord of Denbigh, when his brother Llewelyn was 
Prince of Wales. 

Dolbadarn Castle in Snowdonia, North Wales, was one of a number 
of fortresses built and maintained in the passes of the Snowdon moun- 
tains, by the ancient British or Welsh kings and princes, and proved 
for many centuries, safe retreats, when they were from time to time, 
driven by their enimies from the more accessible places. It is said to 
be one of the first of Welsh castles, and it is certainly very old; it is 
doubtful whether it was built before, or after Roman times in Britain. 

Dynevor (Dinefwr) Castle, in Carmarthen, South Wales, stands 
where an earlier Welsh castle was built by Rhodri Mawr (Roderick the 
Great), for his son Cadell, Prince of South Wales, whose successors 
later on moved the seat of government to Carmarthen castle, which for 
many years was the headquarters of these Princes and their descend- 
ants. 

Cardigan Castle, with Cardiganshire and other territories, belonged 
for many years to Prince Rhys, grandson of Rhj's ab Tewdwr, and 
Prince Rhys' son Griffith. 

Tenby Castle and the great walls surrounding the town, in Pem- 
brokeshire, were built by the Flemings, under the command of Gerald 
de Windsor, Governor of Pembroke. 

Many other places and castles, which were associated with early 
Welsh history, could be referred to with interest, but space which 
should perhaps properly be assigned to such matters, in a work of this 
kind, has already been much enlarged, and the author feels that he 
must be content with the foregoing.

The Direct Male Line. 



L 
DOMINUS OTHO. 

He is supposed to have been a member of the family of Gherardini 
of Florence, Italy; and this is seemingly confirmed by the Latin form of 
the name, "Geraldini," assumed by the descendants; in any event he 
was a nobleman and came from Florence. This noble passed over into 
Normandy and thence into England, in 1057, w^here he became so great 
a favorite of King Edv^^ard, the Confessor, that he excited the jealous}'- 
of the Saxon thanes. 

His English possessions were enormous and at his death they 
devolved upon his son, Walter Fitz Otho. 

2. 
WALTER. FITZ OTHO. 

After the Conquest in 1066, he was treated by the Normans as one 
of their fellow-countrj^men, a fact which seems somewhat remarkable, 
and he was mentioned in the Doomsday Book as being in possession of 
his father's estates in 1078. He was Castellan of Windsor and Warden 
of the forests in county of Berks. 

This fortunate heir put the cope-stone to his prosperity, by marriage 
with Gladj^s, the daughter of Rhiwallon ap Cj'nf}^, Prince of North 
Wales, by whom he was father of three sons, namely: 

Gerald Fitz Walter (Gerald de Windsor), the eldest son and suc- 
cessor. 

Robert de Windsor, Baron of Eston. 

William de Windsor, Ancestor of the Barons of Windsor and Earls 
of Plymouth, also of the Marquess of Lansdowne. 



GENEALOGY OF THE ANCIENT YALES 73 

3. 
GERALD FITZ WALTER (Gerald de Windsor). 

The principal recorded events of his career are given in connection 
with the history of "Wales in this w^ork, as he took a prominent part in 
the Norman invasion of that principality. Through his wife Nesta, 
daughter of Rhys ap Tewdwr, Prince of South Wales, who as we have 
seen was dramatically abducted by Owain ab Cadwgan, he came into 
possession of Carew castle and other properties in South Wales. He 
was also for many years the Governor of Pembroke castle, Pembroke- 
shire, "Little England beyond Wales," where a colony of Flemings 
settled and under his leadership, successfully resisted the onslaughts of 
the Welsh. The Flemings under Gerald's direction fortified Tenby in 
Pembrokeshire, building walls of great strength and heighth around 
the town and also a strong and magnificent castle. Under his guidance 
they also fortified other towns and strongholds in that section of Wales, 
making Pembrokeshire, in fact, almost impregnable against the mili- 
tary genius of the times. 

Nesta, the wife of Gerald, was even more famous than he. She was 
a descendant, through her father Rhys ap Tudor, (or Tewdwr) of the 
long line of kings and princes who had ruled over Britain and Wales 
for many centuries, and was said to have been the most beautiful wo- 
man of her time, being called the "Helen of Wales." She was mistress 
of Henry I., King of England, and her sons by him were named Fitz 
Henry. Henry seems to have put her aside, perhaps for political reas- 
ons, for Matilda, the daughter of Malcolm, King of Scotland; and she 
then married Gerald de Windsor. Anyway the settlement of affairs 
between herself and Henry must have been mutually agreeable, as it is 
well known that her husband Gerald, was a staunch friend of the 
English King for many years after he married Nesta. 

Gerald and Nesta had three sons, namely: 

Maurice Fitz Gerald, Lord of Maynooth and heir to his father's 
estates. Ancestor of the Dukes of Leinster, Earls of Kildare and other 
noble families. 

William Fitz Gerald. Ancestor of the great noble family of Carew, 



74 THE YALES AND WALES 

represented by the Barons and Knig-hts of Carew; also of the barons of 
Gerard, and of the Fitz Maurice's. 

David Fitz Gerald. The Bishop of St. David's, who died in 1176. 

They also had a daughter, 

Ang-harad, who married William de Barri and was the mother of 
Gerald de Barri (Giraldus Cambrensis),the noted British historian. 

After the death of Gerald de Windsor, Nesta married Stephen the 
Castellan and by him was mother of Robert Fitz Stephen, who was 
associated with his brother, Maurice Fitz Gerald, in leading the first 
invasion of Ireland, in the Norman conquest, in 1169. 

Nesta was certainly one of the most noted women of her time, and 
she was as we have stated, the maternal ancestor of a number of the 
greatest families of England, Ireland and Wales. 

4. 

MAURICE FITZ GERALD 

The name of Maurice Fitz Gerald is indelibly and prominently 
associated with the Norman conquest of Ireland and he was the patriarch 
of the Irish Geraldines and the ancestor of the Dukes of Leinster, Earls 
of Kildare and other noble families, representing- Ireland's most promi- 
nent nobility. In 1168, Dermot MacMurroug-h, King of Leinster, hav- 
ing been driven from his territory by Roderick O'Connor, sought aid 
from the English, and succeeded in enlisting in his cause Richard de 
Clare, the second Earl of Pembroke, also called "Richard Strongbow." 
Dermot, having concluded his arrangements with Richard, started on his 
return to Ireland; it being understood that the latter was to follow as 
soon as he could collect his forces. Having reached St. Davids, Wales, 
on his return journey, Dermot was kindly received by David Fitz Ger- 
ald, the Bishop, and at the prelate's suggestion, his brother Maurice 
Fitz Gerald and his half brother Robert Fitz Stephen, engaged to as- 
sist the Irish King with their forces; and in May, 1169, Maurice and 
Robert embarked with a small body of soldiers in two ships. They 
first captured Wrexford, with which lordship Maurice was invested, 
and then they marched forward and took Dublin. 

Strongbow did not land in Ireland and join Maurice and Robert 
until in August 1170, thus it will be noted, that to Maurice Fitz Gerald 



GENEALOGY OF THE ANCIENT YALES 75 

and his half brother Robert Fitz Stephen, belong-s the honor of leading 
the first of these Norman expeditions to Ireland, more than a year in 
advance of Richard de Clare. 

In 1171 Maurice and Strong-bow, with a force of only 600 men, were 
beleaguered in Dublin, by 30000 Irish under Roderick the Irish King, 
who was also assisted by a blockading fleet of 30 Manx vessels. 

In this desperate emergency, through Maurice's earnest advice 
and inspiriting exhortations, the garrison resolved to sally forth and 
attack the enemy. The bold exploit was crowned with success; the 
Irish were completely defeated, and Roderick made his escape with 
difficulty. 

Maurice Fitz Gerald married Alice, daughter of Arnulf de Mont- 
gomery, who was son of Roger de Montgomery, the greatest of the Nor- 
man lords and the foremost among the Norman leaders, next to William 
the Conqueror himself. 

Maurice died in 1177 at Wrexford and was buried in the Abbey of 
Grey Friars, outside the walls of the town. 

By his wife Alice he left five sons among whom were: William 
Fitz Maurice, Baron of Naas; Gerald Fitz Maurice, Baron of Offaly; 
Thomas Fitz Maurice, ancestor of the Earls of Desmond and Decies. 

5. 

THOMAS FITZ MAURICE (Fitz Gerald). 

He was the third son of Maurice Fitz Gerald, by his wife Alice. 
Thomas Fitz Maurice left a son: John Fitz Thomas (Fitz Gerald), 
Lord of Decies and Desmond. 

6. 

JOHN FITZ THOMAS (Fitz Gerald). 

He was Lord of Decies and Desmond and a Count Palatine in the 
year 1259. By virtue of the latter roj^al position, he created three of 
his sons by his second wife Honora, hereditary knights; and thus 
originated the titles of the "White Knight," the "Knight of Glyn" and 
the "Knight of Kerry." 

He also was father of a son by his first wife, who was called, 



76 THE YALES AND WALES 

OSBORN FiTZ Gerald. This son was also denominated by the Welsh 
heralds, Osborn Wj^ddel (Osborn, the Irishman). 

7. 

OSBORN FITZ GERALD (Osbwrn, or Osbern, Wyddel). 

As has been stated Osborn was a son of John Fitz Thomas-Fitz 
Gerald. Lord of Decies and Desmond, by his first wife. He left Ireland, 
his native country, about the j^ear 1260, and went to Wales, where he 
obtained extensive possessions, by grant or marriage, or by both, in Co. 
Merioneth in North Wales, including the site of the present mansion of 
Cors-y-Gedol. 

As we have seen, Osborn' s ancestors had formerly lived in Wales 
and were closely and highly associated with the national affairs of the 
principality. His great-great-great-grandmother Gladys, and his great, 
great-grandmother Nesta, were Welsh princesses, while his great-grand- 
mother Alice was granddaughter of the greatest of the Norman lords. 

Also, as we have seen, his great-grandfather, Maurice Fitz Gerald, 
was the leader of the first successful Norman invasion of Ireland. 

Truly the greatness of his ancestry was all that could be desired 
and it is evident that he was no stranger to Wales, or to Welsh affairs, 
when he emigrated therefrom Ireland. He was the ancestor of the Yales 
in the direct male line and he was certainly living in Co. Merioneth in 
1293, as he was assessed in that year, in the parish of Llanaber, to- 
wards the tax of a Fifteenth. He had a son; Cyxrik ap Osborn. 

8. 

CYNRIK AP OSBORN. 

On the division of his father's lands, he, according to the custom of 
gavelkind, then prevalent in Wales, inherited Cors-y-Gedol as a portion 
of his share. He w^as father of: Llewelyn ap Cynrik. 

9. 
LLEWELYN AP CYNRIK. 

He married Nest, or Nesta, daughter and coheir of Griffith ap Adda, 



Aberystwith Castlp:.

JOHN YALE (Also called John Wyn or Wynn). 

John Yale was, as has been noted, the eldest son of David Lloyd 
ap Ellis. He inheirted Plas-yn-Yale from his father and was the 
ancestor of the Yale's of Plas-yn-Yale, and also of the Yale's of 
Plas Grono. He married first, Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Mostyn, 
of Mostyn, co. Flint. By her he had a son and a daughter, namely: 
Thomas Yale, who succeeded to Plas-yn-Yale and continued that line 
of Yales; and Jane Yale, who married Joseph Haynes. 

John Yale was also father of another son, by Agnes, daughter of 
John Lloyd, who was named David Lloyd, D. C. L. (Dr. David Yale), 
who married Frances, daughter of John Lloyd D. C. L. David Lloyd 
D. C. L., or Dr. David Yale, as he was called later on, was the ancestor 
of the Yales of Plas Grono and therefore of the Yales in America. 

"Powys Fadog'" (vol. five note on P. 139) is the authority for the 
above statements relative to the parentage of David Lloyd D. C. L. (Dr. 
David Yale) and of his marriage to Frances daughter of John Lloyd D. 
C. L. 

The matter referred to in "Powys Fadog" was taken from "Cae 
Cyriog' ' Mss. and certainly such authority cannot be questioned. There 
is other ample and indisputable evidence in "A History of the Country 
Townships of the Old Parish of Wrexham, 1903" by Alfred Neobard 
Palmer, to prove positively that David Lloyd D. C. L., was no other 
than Dr. David Yale, and it is not at all strange that he was first called 
Lloyd, as surnames were notoriously unsettled in Wales at that time, 
as they had been for a long time previously and were for some years 
later. The preceding pedigree shows how unsettled the names were 
among his ancestors. 

I have gone into the matter of Dr. David Yale's connections at some 
length, as the most of the former printed pedigrees of the Yales, do not

explain definitely, if at all, how the Yales of Plas-yn-Yale and the 
Yales of Plas Grono were related. 



We have now broug-ht the Genealogy of the Yales in the male line, 
from Dominus Otho down to and including John Yale (also known as 
John Wyn or Wynn), where the family lines of the Yales of Plas-yn- 
Yale and the Yales of Plas Grono (and of America), divide; and we 
have also given, in the history of Wales, about all that is known of the 
principal events in the lives of the most noted ancestors on the maternal 
side, except the ancestors of Alice de Montgomery, who became the wife 
of Maurice Fitz Gerald; and before proceeding withtheline of the Yales 
of Plas Grono and of America, which begins with Dr. David Yale, I 
think it well to give here a brief pedigree of the persons associated with 
Plas-yn-Yale, from John Yale (or Wynn) down to the present time. 
And as events in the lives of the illustrious de Montgomerys by all 
means must have a place, I will follow the notes on the Yales of Plas-yn- 
Yale, with a brief account of their careers. 

The Pedigree in the forepart of the work will enable the reader to 
clearly understand the connections and descent. 



The Yales of Plas-yn-Yale. 



Thomas Yale, the half brother of Dr. David Yale and son of John 
Yale (Wynn), by his second wife, Margaret Puleston, had three sons. 
He was succeeded by his eldest son:

The House of de Montgomery. 



E 2. 
ROGER DE MONTGOMERY . 

Earl of Shrewsbury, Chichester and Arundel. 

He was son of Roger the Great, who w^as cousin of William the Con- 
queror, and an exile at Paris in 1035. (E 1) Roger the Great accordingly 
was of the same family as William the Conqueror, and was also cousin 
of Ralph de Mortimer and William Fitz Osbern. 

Roger de Montgomery was lord of Montgomery in Normandy, and 
by his marriage to Mabel, daughter of William Talvas of Belleme, 
Alencon and Seez, he became the greatest of the Norman lords. 

He was a supporter of William the Conqueror, his kinsman, fought 
with him at Domfront, Normandy in 1048, and in 1066 contributed 60 
ships for the Norman invasion of England. At the great battle of Hastings 
(Senlac) England, Oct. 14 1066, at which William the Conqueror won 
the English crown, Roger commanded the Norman right and particularly 



HOUSE OF DE MONTGOMERY 83 

disting-uished himself, by his valor in killing- an Eng-lish g-iant. He is 
said by Freeman in his "JSorman Conquest," to have been "literally 
foremost among- the conquerors of Eng-land." 

He returned to Normandy in 1067 and jointly with Matilda, the wife 
of William the Conqueror, was g-uardian of the Duchy, in William's 
absence. 

Later he returned to Eng-land and was made Earl of Shrewsbury 
in 1071, and also became Earl of Chichester and Arundel. The title 
and rank of Earl was the highest in Eng-land from 1066 for about 300 
years and during- William the Conqueror's reig-n there were only six earls. 
He built a g-reat castle at Shrewsbury, parts of which still remain. 
He also built other castles on the Welsh border and one in Montg-omery, 
Wales, in 1093. Montg-omeryshire in that principality was named after 
him. 

He founded Shrewsbury Abbey of St. Peter and St. Paul, 1083-1087, 
and richly endowed it. It was a grand edifice of great extent. 

He secretly supported Robert against King William Rufus, but 
later sided with the latter and fought with him at Rochester in 1088. 

By his wife Mabel he was father of five sons: Robert, Hugh, Roger, 
Philip and Arnulf. He also had four daughters. 

He died July 27, 1093, and was interred in the Abbey at Shrewsbury. 

Roger de Montgomery was not only the greatest of the Norman lords 
in prestige and position and the foremost of the Norman leaders, next 
to William the Conqueror himself, but he was also great in his piety, as 
is evidenced by his founding and rich endowment of Shrewsbury Abbey 
and his liberal benefactions to the monks. 



E 3. 
ARNULF (Arnulph) DE MONTGOMERY. 

Earl of Pembroke (Fl. 1110) 

He was fifth son of Roger de Montgomery and took a prominent 
part in the Norman invasion of Wales, as has been noted in the history 
of the principality given herein. He built Pembroke Castle about 1093, 
and as has been set forth in the history of the Wales, he was in league 
with some of the Welsh princes in favor of Robert Duke of Normandy, 
in his attempt to remove his brother King Henry (Beauclare) from the 



84 THE YALES AND WALES 

English throne. About this time Arnulf entered into an alliance with 
Muircertach, King- of Munster, Ireland, who gave him his daughter in 
marriage and promised to make him his successor. The attempt to de* 
pose King Henry was however, unsuccessful, and Arnulf went to the 
court of Muircertach for assistance, which he was unable to give; and 
in fact he expected aid from his son-in-law against Magnus, the Danish 
King. Later on, in 1102, Muircertach courted the favor of King Henry 
and took back his daughter from Arnulf and gave her to another man, 
and even plotted against his life. (Britannica, Volume XIII. page 254 
ninth edition). 

It is also stated (Die. Nat. Biog. XL IX. 103) that Arnulf married, 
after much negotiation, the daughter of Murchadh, King of Leinster, 
Ireland, and died next day. 

His daughter, Alice de Montgomery', became, as has been stated 
heretofore, the wife of Maurice Fitz Gerald. 



Arms and Crests. 



The use of the Coat of Arms first became general in the twelfth 
century. The first known tomb or monument bearing escutcheons, in 
the period of modern history, is said to be the eleventh century tomb 
in the Church of St. Emmeran at Ratisbon; which bears the Arm.s 
of Varmond, a count of Vasserburg. Badges, emblems and ensigns 
were in use in much earlier times, among the Israelites, Greeks and 
Romans; but there seems to be no connecting link, between these more 
ancient devices and the more modern devices and the more modern use 
of heraldic emblems of the middle ages. 

Heraldic designs were used as distinguishing emblems on the armor 
of knights and nobles, in the eleventh century, so that they might be 
known to each other in battle; but as stated, they did not come into 
extended use until the twelfth century ; when it became the duty of the 
aged knights, appointed for the purpose, to pass judgment on the coats 
of arms displayed and the right of knighthood, at the tournaments. 
This practice developed the professional and official heralds.

ARMS AND CRESTS SB 

The escutcheon, or shield, is the most important in the arms, and 
next in importance are the stripes on same. Each of the various devices 
have some sort of significance. 

The Arms and Crest of Yale (Coat of Arms) are undoubtedly almost 
as ancient as heraldry itself, as the emblem illustrated in the colored 
plate, herewith, is essentially the same as the Arms and Crest of the 
family of John Fitz Thomas (Fitz Gerald), who was Lord of Decies and 
Desmond and Count Palatine in 1259. His family Arms and Crest 
included the Ermine shield, with the red St. Andrews cross, and the 
wild boar. Also the shield and the red St. Andrews cross, are incor- 
porated in the Arms of the Dukes of Leinster and other descendants of the 
notable Maurice Fitz Gerald, who died in 1177. In fact the arms of 
practically all of the "Geraldines," (descendants of Maurice Fitz Gerald 
and of Gerald de Windsor), include the shield with the red St. Andrews 
cross, and the most of them have the ermine field. 

The Yale Coat of Arms, was therefore, derived from the Fitz Geralds 
and handed down through the direct male line, from Osborn Fitz Gerald 
(Osbwrn Wyddel). 

The Arms of Yale shown by the plate are the Arms of the Yales of 
Plas Grono, the ancestors of the Yales in America, and practically 
differ from the Arms of the Yales of Plas yn Yale only in the 
"fretty," or lattice work of gold, which appears on the Arms of the lat- 
ter. The wild boar in a gold net on a green mount, with an acorn slip 
in his mouth, is represented in the crest of each; but the chapeau, a 
military or official cap or hat, seems to have been added at some time, 
by some member of the family of Yales of Plas Grono. 

The Arms and Crest shown in the plate are technically described 
as follows: 

Arms: — Erm, (ermine) a saltire gu. (A red St. Andrews cross). 

Crest: — A mount (hillock) vert (green), i/iereon a boar az. (blue), 
within a net or. (gold), in the tnouih an acorri slipped ppr. [natural 
colors). 

The ermine represents the fur of a small white animal, a native of 
Armenia, and the marks on same are supposed to represent the tails of 
the animals, sewed to the fur for its enrichment. Ermine is an especial 
mark of dignity and has long been associated with royalty and the 
nobility. 



86 THE YALES AND WALES 

The St. Andrews cross is a sj^mbol of resolution, while the red 
denotes military fortitude and mag-nanimity. 

The wild boar is a fierce combatant and may be considered to rep- 
resent a valiant warrior. Blue may have a religious sig^nificance and 
possibly originated in the Crusades. The acorn slip sig^nifies strength 
and antiquity; while the golden net indicates that a g-reat warrior fin- 
ally succumbed to pacific influences. 

The chapeau denotes military authority. 

Crests were ancientU^ affixed to the helmets of the commanders for 
their distinction in battle and were in use before the heriditary bearing- 
of coat armour, and they were not considered in any w^ay connected 
with family arms, until by enactment of Edward III., in the fourteenth 
century. 

The use of arms by private persons was forbidden by proclamation 
during the reig-n of Henry V. All persons in the British Isles, who had 
not borne arms at Agincourt were prohibited from assuming- them, un- 
less by hereditary descent, or with the sanction of the authorities. Pe- 
ridocial circuits (visitations) were held afterwards, until the end of 
the seventeenth century, to determine bj'^ examination of pedig-rees, etc. , 
the right to the use of armoral bearing-s Many of these records are 
preserved in the British museum and are still consulted, for evidence of 
the hereditary right to use family arms. 

Ashworth P. Burke, author of "Burke's Peerage" and other works, 
aptly states: "A right to bear arms is the true criterion of nobility."

Doctor David Yale was son of John Yale, who was also sometimes 
called John Wyn and sometimes John Wynn, of Plas-yn-Ial (Plas-yn- 
Yale). 

John Yale, or Wynn w^as, as heretofore stated, the father of two sons 
and one daughter, namely: first, Thomas Yale, who inherited Plas-yn- 
Yale, and continued that line of the family; and second, Jane Yale, w^ho 



YALES OF PLAS GRONO 87 

married Joseph Haynes, D. D. (The mother of Thomas and Jane was 
Elizabeth Mostyn, daugfhter of Thomas Mostyn.) The third was Dr. 
David Yale and his mother was Ag-nes Lloyd, daug-hter of John Lloyd. 

It will be noted here, as well as in the preceding- pedigree, that 
Thomas Yale, whose descendants continued the line of "Plas-yn-Yale" 
and Dr. David Yale, the ancestor of the Yales of Plas Grono, were half 
brothers; hence the relationship of the Yales of these two ancient estates 
will be understood. 

The father of John Yale (Wynn), was David Lloyd ap Elisse (Ellis) 
of Plas-yn-Ial, who was descended from a long line of honorable, illus- 
trious and noble ancestors, as set forth in the preceding pages. 

Dr. David Yale was also known as David Lloyd D. C. L., but this 
is not at all strange, as at that time surnames in Wales were quite un- 
settled, and in fact were first brought into use and handed down from 
father to son, just about this time. 

He and his half brother Thomas were the first, after their uncle 
Thomas Yale, Chancellor of Matthew Parker, to assume definitely 
and finally, the surname "Yale." 

Dr. David Yale was one of the great men of his time and country. 
Mr. Alfred Neobard Palmer pays the following tribute to him: "a man, 
famous in himself, and famous in his connections and descendants, not 
the least of whom was Elihu Yale, the founder of Yale College in New 
England." 

He was rector of Llandegla (1564-1573), prebendary of Y Faenol in 

St. Asaph Cathedral (1578-1624), prebendary of Chester (1582 ), 

Chancellor of Chester a587-1624), Justice of the Peace (1601-1620) "and 
of the Quorum" for the County of Chester (1603). He owned the estate 
known as Erddig House (now Erddig Hall) and also Plas Grono and 
other extensive tracts of land in the vicinity. In the deeds preserved at 
Erddig, he is generally called "doctor of laws" and sometimes "es- 
quire and doctor of laws," and once he is described as "Chancellor of 
Chester." Before his acquisition of Erddig, he is generally described 
as "of Chester" or "of Tattenhall," Cheshire. 

The wife of Dr. David Yale was Frances Lloyd, daughter of John 
Lloyd ap David Lloyd of Cevn Amwlch, in Lleyn, Carnarvonshire, who 
was of the family of Griffiths of Cevn Amwlch. 



THE YALES AND WALES 



Dr. John Lloj^d D. C. L. father of Frances Lloyd-Yale, was a very 
eminent man. He was for forty years an advocate in the Consistory Court 
of Canterburj'- and resided at Hartshorne, Derbyshire. His wife, the 
motherof Frances, was Elizabeth, daughter of Thomas Pigott of "Dodder's 
Hall" in Co. Bucks. Dr. John Lloyd also had another daughter, 
Maria or Mary, who married Sir Symon Weston, Knight of Lichfield. 

Dr. Lloyd died February, 20,1607, aged 74 years and was interred 
in Chester Cathedral where his remains were covered by a brass, since 
destroyed, which bore the following inscription: 

"Here lies JohnLloj'd a Cambritriton Doctor of Laws, for forty years 
advocate in the Canterbury Court of Arches, London; together with 
Elizabeth, his most beloved wife; daughter of Thomas Piggotof Dodders 
Hall, in the County of Bucks, An Esquire of ancient nobility and to- 
gether with their niece Elizabeth, and their daughter Francisca, wife 
of David Yale, Doctor of Laws. The said wife Elizabeth died the 
12th December, 1590. The niece Elizabeth died 4th October, 1591. The 
aforesaid John lived 74 years, devoted toward God, just toward all men. 
To whomsoever he could he did good. He injured no one. At length 
he entered upon the way of all flesh 20 February, 1607 English style."* 

In the will of Dr. Thomas Yale, Chancellor of Canterbury (proved 
1 April, 1578), the testator mentions his "Kinsman" "Davy Yale, "and 
provides means for him to "re-edify the house in Yale," leaving him for 
that purpose "the reversion of theleaseof the Vaynoll." "The VaynoU" 
no doubt meant the prebend of Y Faenol in St. Asaph Cathedral, in 
which, as is known from other evidence. Dr. David Yale succeeded Dr. 
Thomas Yale. Therefore the "Davy Yale" of the will was unquestion- 
ably, Dr. David Yale. He was also co-executor of the will. 

The Shield of the Arms of Yale of Plas-yn-Yale and that of the Arms 
of Yale of Plas Grono, differed only in the fact, that the saltire on the 
former was engrailed, while on the latter it was not. 

Dr. David Yale was prominent in his time, as the proprietor and 
landlord of large estates, as well as in an official capacity. He was in 
possession of Old Plas Grono before the year 1590, represented in later 
years by "plas Grono farm," in the hamlet of Hafod-y-bwch, in the 
township of Esclusham below Dyke, County of Denbigh. It is not known 
how long he had owned this estate before the year 1590, neither is it 

*Note: See Alfred Neobard Palmer's "History of the Country Townships of the old 
Parish of Wrexham" for evidence as to the parentage of Dr. Da\'id Yale and his relation- 
ship to the Yales of Plas-yn- Yale; also for the parentage of his wife Frances. 



YALES OF PLAS GRONO 89 

known when New Plas Grono was built, in the same hamlet, but nearer 
the confluence of the two brooks, called "Afon sech" and "Afon goch." 
The latter was, to avoid confusion, called "Plas Newydd" (NewHall) 
and '"Ty Cerryg-" "Stone House," but finally it was known by the 
original name "Plas Grono," or to employ its full form, "Plas Goronwy 
(Grono's or Goronwy's Hall). A picture of this house is presented 
herein, and was, as is stated elsewhere, pulled down in 1876. It was a 
commodious residence, of sufficient dimensions to accommodate a family of 
twenty, with rooms to spare; there was an excellent walled-in fruit gar- 
den, an ample lawn, a dove cot and sufficient stabling. The tax returns 
for 1670, state it contained eight hearths. It passed from the Yale family, 
when in 1728 it was sold by the heirs of Governor Elihu Yale. On the 
17th or 18th of December 1731, this house, with part of the estate be- 
longing thereto, was resold to John Meller of Erddig and has to this 
day remained a part of the Erddig estate, now represented by Erddig 
Hall. After it became a part of Erddig it was occupied by several 
very distinguished families, among whom were Rev. William Powell 
A. M., Dean of St. Asaph, Mr. Richard Lloyd, of "The Rossett" in 
Gresford parish. Mr. Isaac Wilkinson, ironmaster of Bersham Iron 
Works. Rev. George Warrington, afterwards vicar of Hope and Mr. 
Thomas Apperley, father of the famous "Nimrod" (Charles James 
Apperley), who wrote affectionately of the old place, in part, as follows; 
"I have never seen such noble sycamore and horse-chestnut trees, as 
those which sheltered Plas Gronow from the fury of the south western 
blast direct from the Welsh hills; nor tasted such fine fruit as its garden 
produced, nor drunk such cream, nor tasted such butter." He writes 
also of the surroundings of this old home: of the pretty cottages covered 
with honeysuckles, of the lovely lanes, of the noble woods of Errdig and 
of the tall and beautiful tower of Wrexham Church, seen two miles away. 
It seems likely that "'New Plas Grono," later called simply, "Plas 
Grono," which we have just described, was built by Dr. David Yale, 
for his son Thomas Yale, the father of David, Anne and Thomas, the 
first Yales in America. 

Dr. David Yale owned "Erddig House," (now Erddig Hall) and re- 
sided there, at least a part of the time, from about the year 1600 to the year 
1619. He certainly purchased some lands in Erddig as early as Septem- 
ber, 20, 1598, as on that date he empowered "Robert Lloyd, gent., as his 



90 THE YALES AND WADES 

attorney, to take possession of lands in Erddig-, purchased by him from 
John Erthig- and William Erthig, gentlemen of Erddig-," Also about 
the same time he was purchasing Messuages and lands, or leases of 
leashold property, in the adjoining townships of Esclusham and Sontley. 
The Erddig House estate consisted of about 254 English statute acres, 
about the time Dr. Yale sold it to Mr. Richard Davies, according to 
"Norden's Survey" of 1620. Mr. Davies purchased it from Dr. Yale in 
the year 1619. 

Among the fields on the Erddig Hall estate in Dr. Yale's time were 
"Bron Erthick" (Erthig Brow) "Llwyn Erthick" (Erthig Grove) "Kae 
yr Castell" (Castle field) "Y dolydd Erthick" (Erthig Meadows) 
"Gweirglodd Erthick" (Erddig- hay field) "Gwerne Erthick" (Erddig 
alder-marsh) and "Laund Y Glyn" (Glyn Glade). 

Dr. Yale also was in possession, by lease, of Gljm Park, which 
was English Crown land. The park, generally speaking, took in the 
whole valley of the Clywedog, from a point near "Erddig Fechan" to 
the King's Mills on the Ellesmere Road. He purchased the lease. of 
part of the park, from Peter Warburton Esq., in the j^ear 1606, and 
also secured otherwise a lease of nearly all the remainder; for it is 
stated that on October, 9, 1615, he was "seized for years yet enduring 
of 'One Parke commonly called Glyn Parke, also Parke Coed-y-Glyn, ' 
in the parishes of Wrexham and Marchwiel, which said park had long 
since been disparked and turned to arable land, meadow and pasture, 
and wherein were divers messuages and tenements, and two 'corn 
milnes.' " Park Coed-y-Glyn included part of Erddig township and 
adjoined the rest of it. There is a map of Glyn Park at Erddig Hall, 
drawn up in the reign of Queen Elizabeth, on which the estimated area 
is given as 697 statute acres. 

On August 3, 1601, Dr. David Yale conveyed the estate of Erddig 
House to trustees: first, to the use of himself and of his wife, Frances, 
for the term of their natural lives, and after their death, to the use of 
Thomas Yale, their eldest son and heirs male, or, in default, to George 
Yale, their second son and heirs male, or, in default, to David Yale, 
their third son and heirs male, or, in default, to John Yale, their fourth 
son and heirs male, or, in default, to Hugh Yale, their fifth son and heirs 
male, or, in default, to Richard Yale, their sixth son and heirs male. 

On October 9, 1615 Dr. David Yale conveyed to Richard Davies, 



YALES OF PLAS GRONO 91 

Vinter of London, his right in a leasehold property in Sontley and 
September, 15 1619, he together with his wife Frances, and eldest son 
and heir apparent, Thomas Yale, sold for ;^2300 to the same Richard 
Davies, his Erddig estate; the same containing, four messuages, a 
dovehouse, ISO acres of (arable) land, eighty of meadow, hundred of 
pasture, twenty wood, twenty heath and bruery, and twenty of moor, 
"in Erthick and Esclusham." 

In August, 1898, Mr. Charles Henry Townshend of New Haven, 
Conn., a member of the Advisory Committee and Board of Directors of 
The New Haven Colony Historical Society, discovered at Chester, England 
the will of Dr. David Yale, dated August 15, 1625, and proved in the 
Consistory Court of Chester, with two codicils thereto, June 16, 1626. 
In this will are named two younger sons, Simon Yale and Samuel Yale, 
evidently born after the conveyance of August 3, 1601, heretofore 
mentioned. Several daughters are also mentioned in this will, namely: 

Ellen, Katherine, Frances, Devereux and two who were married, 

Elyse and Reynolds. 

Besides the other bequests in the will he gives "to David Yale, 
Thomas Yale and anne Yale, children of Thomas Yale, my eldest 
Sonne late deceased, twentie pounds a yeare." 

Dr. David Yale was one of the first of the name and certainly he 
was also one of the most prominent and honored of the name.*

Thomas Yale was the eldest son of Dr. David Yale D. C. L., Chan- 
cellor of Chester, and lived at Chester, England and at PI as Grono, the 
family estate near Wrexham, Wales. He married about the year 1612, 

*Note: Mr. Palmer indicates that he must have made an error in copying the month, 
either of the sale of Erddig House, or of the date of Thomas Yale's property inventory, 
given in his biography; as the inventory date is given by him as a month earlier than the 
sale of Erddig, in which Thomas participated. 



92 THE YALES AND WALES 

Anne Lloyd, daughter of George Lloj^d, Bishop of Chester, 1604-1615, 
by his wife Anne, daughter of John Wilkinson of Norwich. Lord 
Bishop George Lloyd was son of Meredith Lloyd, of Carnarvonshire, 
and was born in the year 1560, at Carnarvonshire, Wales. He received 
his early education in Wales and was a fellow of Magdalene College, 
Cambridge. Was Rector of Heswell-in-Wirral, Cheshire, and divinity 
reader in Chester Cathedral. Received appointment of Bishop of Soder 
and Man, in the year 1600 and of Chester in 1604, retaining the latter 
position until his death. He also held livings, in addition to his sees. 
He died August 1, 1615, aged fifty-five years and was interred in Chester 
Cathedral. 

In the church of St. Werbarges is an alabaster stone, which bore a 
plate that some vandal has since carried off, on which was inscribed a 
Latin inscription, of which the following is an English translation: 

"An untimelj^ death has shut up in this tomb the heart of George 
Lloyd, whose memory is recorded in Chester. Who was by race a 
Welshman. Educated at Cambridge, a Doctor of Theology and a 
leader of the Theologians. He directed and benefited the Bishopric of 
Soder and Man, presiding over it for a term of iive years. His mother 
England recalled her son and deemed him worthy to possess the Bish- 
opric of Chester, where eleven seasons have passed away — not without 
storms of trouble; he died lamented, and worthy to be lamented, in the 
fiftj^-fifth year of his age and on the first day of the month of August, 
1615. Neither was there shame in his life nor shame in his death." 

It has been claimed that this Thomas Yale was named "David," 
but the will of his father. Dr. David Yale, which is given in connection 
with his biography, is positive proof, that the father of David, Ann, and 
Thomas Yale, who were the first Yales in America, was named 
"Thomas." It has also been claimed that Anne (or Ann) his wife, who 
afterwards became the wife of Theophilus Eaton, was daughter of 
Bishop Morton of Chester, but this also is an error; as Bishop Morton 
died unmarried; and further there is ample evidence that she was, as 
has been stated, daughter of Bishop Lloyd of Chester. J. P. Earwaker, 
in his History of East Cheshire, in a note on page thirty -three, states 
she was a daughter of Bishop Lloyd of Chester. Also, A. N. Palmer, 
author of "The Country Townships of the Old Parish of Wrexham," 
is quite certain that this statement of her parentage is correct and 
states, among other evidence, that Mr. Edward Meredith Jones of Wrex- 
ham, paid a visit to Plas Grono in 1876, while the old house was being

demolished, and made a sketch of the coat of arms painted on one of the 
mantlepieces, which he later showed to him. He says the shield repre- 
sented a cross saltire, impaling a chevron between three mullets, and 
states further, that the coat of arms of the eldest brother of Bishop 
Lloyd, was known to be: — Gules, a Chevron between three mullets or.; 
and that therefore the coat of arms on the mantlepiece at Plas Grono, 
was that of Thomas Yale, who married Anne, eldest daughter of Bishop 
Lloyd. 

This coat of arms at Plas Grono indicates that Thomas Yale and 
his family must have lived for sometime at Plas Grono and it was most 
likely their permanent, or country home; however they also lived at 
Chester, and Mr. Palmer states, in his pedigree of the Yales of Plas 
Grono, that Thomas Yale died at Chester, before August 26, 1619; and in 
support of this statement, he his written a note at the bottom of page 
223 in his book, heretofore mentioned, relative to an inventory on file 
at Chester, of Thomas Yale's goods. Mr. Palmer's note in substance 
is as follows: 

"1 have seen in the Chester Probate Registry, the inventory of the 
goods of this Thomas Yale, of the City of Chester, gent., dated August 
27, 1619. The three children of the deceased are mentioned in the 
inventory, and in addition, "Mris Jfilizabeth Wright, one of the dece- 
dent's daughters," and "Mris Yale," evidently the widow of Mr. 
Thomas Yale." (The value of this personal estate was ;^36-10s-8d.) 

The "daughter", "Elizabeth Wright", is also called "Mary 
Wright," in Mr Palmer's pedigree, and it seems she was a younger 
daughter of Thomas Yale. However it is evident that she was not living 
August 15, 1625, when Dr. David Yale, the father of Thomas, made his 
will, as he only mentioned the other three children; David, Thomas and 
Anne. 

Mr. Charles Hervey Townshend of New Haven, Conn., discovered 
during his researches in England and Wales, several ancient wills, 
among which was the will of Dr. Thomas Yale, Chancellor to Matthew 
Parker, Arch Bishop of Canterbury, and the will of Dr. David Yale, 
Chancellor of Chester, which are noted in connection with other matters 
about these eminent persons, in this work. Mr. Townshend has also 
supplied the copies of the inscriptions on the tablets, relating to Bishop 
George Lloyd and Dr. John Lloyd, reproduced herein. Mr. Townshend 



94 THE YALES AND WALES 

was himself a descendant of Mr Thomas Yale, the subject of this sketch, 
and of his son Thomas Yale of New Haven. 

About the year 1625, Anne Llo3'd-Yale, the widow of Thomas Yale, 
married Theophilus Eaton, a wealthy merchant of London; who was 
the eldest son of the Rev. Richard Eaton, A. B., vicar of Great Bud- 
worth, Cheshire. Mr. Eaton was born about 1591, at Stony Stratford, 
Bucking-hamshire, England. He, together with his wife, Anne, and his 
three step-children, David, Anne and Thomas Yale, sailed for New 
England in America, in the year 1637, in company with Rev. John 
Davenport, a celebrated London clergyman. They landed at Boston, 
Mass., and prefering to go into the wilderness, Eaton with a few men, 
after exploring the coast of the sound, spent the following winter at a 
desirable place in that region. As soon as spring opened, the company 
sailed from Boston and in due time, they arrived at the place where 
Eaton had spent the winter. There (in April 1638), under a large tree, 
on the Sabbath after their arrival, Davenport preached his first sermon 
in the wilderness. A daj^ of fasting and prayer for direction was 
observed, and they formed a government, pledging themselves "to be 
governed in all things by the rules which the Scripture held forth to 
them." Such was the settlement of New Haven. They purchased from 
the Indians the right to the land (Quinipiak), and Eaton was elected the 
first governor of New Haven colony, in October 1639; which office he 
held for more than twenty years, until his death; having been re-elected 
annually. Mr. Eaton was prominent in the organization of the New 
England Confederation in 1643. In 1655, assisted by Davenport, he 
drew up the so-called Connecticut "Blue Laws." 

On the fourth of January 1640 the General Court of New Haven 
agreed to make a division of certain lands in the town, according to the 
proportion of the personal property possessed by each planter, and at 
the head of the list is Theophilus Eaton's name, with a family of six 
persons and a personal estate of ;^30CX), which was thrice as large as 
that of any other planter, and almost ten per cent of the whole amount 
listed. Governor lilaton died at new Haven January 7, 1658. 

As every bit of information about this family is of general interest, 
it is well to state that Cotton Mather in his life of Eaton describes the 
wife of the Governor as, "A Prudent and Pious Widow, the Daughter 
of the Bishop of Chester." Cotton Mather was undoubtedly personally

well acquainted with the Governor and his wife, hence his statement, 
as to the character and parentag^e of Anne Lloyd- Yale-Eaton, is of the 
highest authority. 

It is claimed that Mrs. Eaton returned to England with her son 
David Yale, In 1659. The date or place of her death has not been 
learned, but she probably died in London, where David resided until 
in the year 1665.

David Yale was the eldest son of Thomas Yale of Plas Grono, in 
Wales, and his wife Anne Lloj^d, daug-hter of Bishop Lloyd, who after- 
wards married Mr. Theophilus Eaton of London Eng-land. David was 
born in 1613. He went with his mother and step-father, to America in 
1637 and settled with them at New Haven in 1638. On January 4th 1640 
in a list of the personal property possessed by the founders of New Haven, 
David Yale is said to have had a personal estate valued at ;!^300. The 
value of his estate was exceeded only by those of Mr. Eaton and his 
mother and brother. 

David Yale at that time was unmarried, but he probabl}'^ married 
about the year 1641. Hiswifes first name was Ursula, but her surname 
has not been learned. He no doubt removed to Boston Mass. about the 
3'ear 1641, as there is nothing on record about him at New Haven, later 
than March, 1641. It seems that he disposed of his landed estate in New 
Haven, to his brother; and at any rate, he must have gone to Boston be- 
fore Majs 1644 as the Boston registry shows the birth of Elizabeth, "the 
daughter of David and Ursula Yale," in May, 1644, and her death in 
August of the same j^ear. 

Mr. Yale was an active and thriving merchant in Boston and August 
23, 1645, purchased from Edward Bendall a house and garden, with 
lands appurtenant, said to be the most splendid in the city, on the site 
of the present Pemberton Square. He was also Attorney for the Earl 
of Warwick in 1646. 

Religiously, he recognized and was in sympathy with the established 
church of England and therefore was not in accord with the civil and 
religious ideas of the majority of the colonists and with the local laws. 
Accordingly, in May, 1646, he was induced to join with six others, in 
signing a famous petition to the General Court of Massachusetts Bay, 
for the redress of certain alleged grievances, specifically remonstrating 
at the non-admission to the churches, of those who acknowledged the

established religion of England, and at the non-participation of the in- 
habitants, who were not members of the colonial church, in the manage- 
ment of civil affairs, as voters and office holders. The authorities of 
Massachusetts were by no means ready for such a subversion of the 
principles of the Church and State, as then by them constituted, and 
the revolutionary petition — especially offensive for its distinct threat of 
appeal, to the parliamentary government in England — was answered, 
not only by a carefully drawn counter argument, but also by heavy 
fines. David Yale paid a fine of ;^30 (corresponding to at least $600 
now) into the public treasury, for his part in this imprudent attempt, 
perhaps incited by older plotters, to stir up a revolution in the Puritan 
colony. Doubtless the fact of his being out of harmony with the religious 
and political affairs existing in the colonies, had much to do with his 
determination later, to return to his native land. On July, 5, 1651, he 
executed a power of attorney to Captain Thomas Clark and Captain 
Thomas Lake, to dispose of his Boston estate and he likely left for 
England soon afterwards; but his family did not go until in 1652, as 
his son Theophilus was born in Boston, in January 1652. He never re- 
turned to America to reside, but was in New England on a visit in the 
summer of 1659. His agents sold the Boston property for him September 
8, 1653. 

On his return to England Mr. Yale became a merchant in London, 
where he remained, certainl}^ until July, 5th, 1665, during the great 
plague, as at that time he made his will; evidently believing that he 
was near to death. In this will he describes himself as "of the Parish 
of Cripplegate, Merchant," and as "subject to distempers and sickness." 
He makes provision for his wife Ursula; for his sons, David, Elihu, 
Theophilus and Thomas, and for his distressed sister, Mrs. Ann Hopkins. 
The eldest son David, was to have the family estate in Denbighshire, 
(PlasGrono). The "lately purchased house and lands called Llynigmon 
(Llwyn Enion)" bought by him from Mr. Hugh Sontley, "with two 
tenements thereunto belonging, lying in the parish of Wrixam;" for the 
provision of portions of ;[^300 each, for his three younger sons Elihu, 
Theophilus and Thomas, on their attaining the age of twenty-one. over 
and above what would come to them from his personal estate. The eldest 
son is also to have the reversion of the lands in Derbyshire, which he 
held in trust for the support of his distressed sister, Mrs. Ann Hopkins.

THE YALES AND WALES 



David Yale did not die of the * 'distempers and sickness" to which 
he stated, he was subject in 1665, but lived twenty-five years longer. 
He soon removed however from London to Plas Grono, the family estate, 
near Wrexham, Wales, as he, as well as his son David, were certainly 
settled there in September, 1667, for Mr. A. N. Palmer states he has seen 
both their signatures on a local deed of that date. 

Plas Grono was inherited by David from his ancestors, but Llwyn 
Enion he himself purchased from Mr. Hug-h Sontley, some time about 
1661 to 1663. 

Plas Grono was a larger house than Llwyn Enion, as the tax re- 
turns of 1670 state the former contained eight hearths, while the latter 
had five. 

Llwyn Enion, (Enion's Grove), remained as a part of Plas Grono 
estate, until sold by the heirs of Gov. Elihu Yale in 1728. 

David Yale was one of the church- wardens of Wrexham 1673-1674, 
and he no doubt continued to reside at Plas Grono until his death, Jan- 
uary 14, 16y0, aged 76 years. His wife Ursula died February 7, 1698, 
aged 74 j^ears. A tablet in the parish church at Wrexham gives these 
dates and also the dates of death of their sons David and Thomas and 
of Mr. Yale's sister, "Anna" Hopkins, the wife of Governor Hopkins.

merchant in London. Thomas had an interest of ;^300 in 
Llwyn Enion, under his fathers will, as has been seen, 
which would have amounted with interest, to ;!^535, at the 
time of his death. This had never been paid to him and 
should have passed to the residuary leg-atee under his will 
— the heir male of his uncle Thomas of New England; but it 
seems Llwyn Enion and Plas Grono were claimed absolutely, 
by the heirs of Elihu and were sold by them. It may be 
that some settlement was made with the heir or heirs, in 
New England, but no such record has been discovered. 

The will made by Thomas was dated September 29, 
1697 and was proved at London England January 17, 1698 
and disposed of his property as follows. "Thomas Yale, of 
London, merchant," directed that after certain bequests, 
the remainder was to be laid out "in a good purchase" from 
the income whereof his mother was to receive an annuity of 
;^50, which his brother Elihu was to have for life if he sur- 
vived her. "And my will is further, that my said mother's 
part after her death and the death of my said Brother, and 
my brothers part after his death, be 07ily received by my 
Trustee for the use of such persons or person as are here- 
after named. And if it should please God, and Brother 
Elihu Yale should have no heirs male, by hifn lawfully 
begotten, then I do herewith appoint that the said estate, 
after the death of my said Mother and Brother, be annexed 
to the hereditary estate in the County of Denbigh, for the 
use of such said heir and his heirs male forever, and in 
(de) fault of such his heirs. Then to the use and behoof of 
the heirs male of my uncle Thomas Yale in New England 
and his fight heirs forever.'''' One of the two Trustees of 
this will was perhaps Rev. Dr. John Evans of London, 
Bishop of Bangor 1701 and of Meath 1715. Thomas Yale's 
body was interred at Wrexham church. An interesting

Biography of Governor Elihu Yale. 
24. 

Elihu Yale was son of David Yale, who came from London, Eng-- 
land with his mother and step-father, Theophilus Eaton, in 1637, and 
who was one of the members of the company, headed by Mr. Eaton and 
Rev John Davenport, which founded the town and colony of New Haven, 
Connecticut, in 1638. 

It has been stated by some writers, that Elihu was the son of 
Thomas Yale of New Haven, but there is no evidence to support this 
view, and on the other hand, there is ample, indisputable evidence, that 
he was the son of David. The will of David Yale and the entry of 
Elihu's admission to Master Dugard's school are sufficient to prove his 
parentage, and this evidence is also substantiated by the indirect testi- 
mony of Cotton Mather and Mr. Clap, and by the records at Madras, in 
which Governor Yale's brother, Thomas, is said to have been a trader 
between China and India, and further and most emphatically, by the 
will of this same Thomas, made September 29, 1697, in which he makes 
bequests to his "Brother Elihu Yale," and also, with certain provisions 
to the '''heirs male of my uncle Thomas Yale in New England and his 
right heirs forever.''' As will be noted, Thomas Yale by this will makes 



102 THE YALES AND WALES 

it clear that Thomas Yale of New Haven was Elihu Yale's uncle, 
instead of father. Furthermore, such eminent authorities as Franklin 
B. Dexter M. A., of Yale University and Alfred Neobard Palmer, Anti- 
quarian, of Wrexham Wales, as well as other prominent writers, are 
emphatic in stating that Elihu Yale was the son of David. 

Sometime between March 1641 and April 1644, as has been stated in 
this work, David Yale removed from New Haven to Boston, Mass. His 
son Elihu was. born April 5, 1649, undoubtedly in or near Boston. Some 
authorities state, on Pemberton square, Boston. In the year 1652 when 
Elihu was three years of age, David Yale's family left Boston and went 
to England, where David had already gone, settling finally in London, 
where we learn about the arrangements for Elihu's education. 

At the time of the execution of King Charles, the master of the well- 
known Merchant Tailors' School in London, supported by the rich com- 
pany of that name, was Mr. William Dugard, a graduate of Cambridge, 
a good scholar, and withal an excellent printer, who combined the 
business of his trade with other duties. He was the chief printer of the 
first editions of the Eikon Basilike, attributed to the late king, and in 
1650 provoked the Commonwealth authorities still further by printing 
an English edition of the Defence of the King, by Salmasius; for this 
his mastership was taken away, and he was thrown into prison. 
Brought to terms by this, and restored to his office, he also printed 
Milton's answer to Salmasius; but in 1661 was again dismissed from 
his place, though not for political reasons, and started a private school 
in Coleman street, in the city, some of the registers of admission to 
which are still preserved; and among the entries, under date of Septem- 
ber 1, 1662, is the name of "Elihu Yale, 2d son of Mr. David Yale, mer- 
chant, born in New England, 1649." (Notes & Queries, 2d ser., ix, 
101.) There can be no doubt that this was the boy for whom Yale Col- 
lege is named, who, now in the autumn of 1662, in his fourteenth or fif- 
teenth year, joined Master Dugard's school, in Coleman street; the same 
short and narrow street in which still stood (until the great fire four 
years later) the parish church of St. Stephen's; memorable to us as the 
church of which John Davenport was vicar, and the spiritual parent of 
the first church of New Haven. 

But the training of Elihu Yale by Milton's friend, Master Dugard, 



THE YALES OF AMERICA 103 

was of the briefest; for death ended Dug-ard's teaching- three months 
after Elihu's admission. 

We hear no more of his school experience; but we know the setting 
of public events, in which he g-rew from boy to man, and that no other 
equally brief period in London history has exceeded this in interest and 
excitement. He was old enough to have seen Cromwell riding- in Lon- 
don streets with his g-uards; to have joined in silent concourse at his 
funeral, and in the shouts of joy at the Restoration. He lived through 
the agonies of the plague; he saw the devastation of the g-reat fire. If it 
pleased him, he may have seen Milton walking in the Park, and Dryden 
lounging at Will's coffee-house; he m^ay have heard Jeremy Taylor and 
Richard Baxter preaching in London pulpits, and Geo. Fox and Wm. 
Penn exhorting in Quaker meeting. He saw the last of an older order 
of things, like nothing since; and he grew up with the beginnings of 
what we may fairly call Modern England. 

At the end of the sixteenth century a charter had been granted by 
Queen Elizabeth to a Company of London merchants trading with the 
East Indies, by which they secured a monoply of that trade, so far as 
not possessed by friendly European powers. The Portuguese had 
already been established in the Peninsula for a hundred years, and 
simultaneously with the English, the Dutch took a hand in the lucrative 
traffic. 

The first English trading house was at Surat, high up on the West- 
ern Coast; but this was not enough; the Eastern side had superior 
attractions from its offering certain goods, especially the beautifully 
dyed or painted calicoes, much in demand not only in Europe, but still 
more in Farther India and the islands to the eastward. But the Eng- 
lish attempts to establish a permanent station on the Coromandel Coast 
were unsuccessful until in 1639, the same year in which civil government 
was' set upon the soil of New Haven, a narrow strip of land, six miles 
long and a mile in breadth, was purchased of the native ruler of the 
middle Eastern coast. The shore was sandy and harborless; but the 
close proximity of the flourishing Portuguese city of St. Thomas aug- 
ured well for the security of the new settlement, and the further circum- 
stance that the territory included a small island, about as large as our 
College Square, fixed the bargain. The island was at once fortified, 
and as none but Europeans were allowed to live on it, this became 



104 THE YALES AND WALES 

known as White Town, or from the name g-iven to the fortifications, 
Fort St. Georg-e; while a Black Town quickly sprang- up on the adjacent 
shore; and both settlements tog"ether were known as Madras. 

In its earliest years the population of the Fort was very scanty, 
perhaps twenty or thirty servants of the Company, and a small garri- 
son; but before long- the neighboring- Portuguese city was broken up by 
a native assault, and many of the refugees were received in Fort St. 
George, and built themselves dwellings there; and with the growth of 
the Company's trade came an increasing official population. 

At the head of affairs was the agent of the East India Company, 
styled the Governor of the settlement and afterwards the President, who 
was also the commander of the garrison. He was lodged in a stately 
mansion in the center of the island, and kept an open table at which all 
of the Companj^'s servants were expected to report themselves every day 
at dinner. Next to him were a bookkeeper (or treasurer), a warehouse 
keeper (or custom house inspector), and a collector of taxes; these with 
some trusted merchants made up the Council, who decided with the 
Governor all matters of business concerning the settlement and its 
trade, except so far as orders from home took precedence. Under these 
were the subordinates, all of whom were lodged and fed at the Com- 
pany's expense. 

Salaries were notoriously and ludicrously small, — from the Govern- 
or's at ;/^100 a year down to the apprentices' at £S. It was expected that 
officers and men would indulge in private ventures of their own in East- 
ern ports, while nominally promoting the Company's trade. Then, too, 
the opportunities for levying extra and illegal taxes on the natives who 
sold goods to the Company, were so evident that they may be said to 
have been expected and connived at; while the want of the restraints of 
family life, and the close neighborhood of the black town with its temp- 
tations to the grosser forms of dissipation, made the Fort a poor school of 
morals for any new comer, however correct his principles and his life 
before leaving England. 

It was about 1670, when just past his majority, that Elihu Yale 
emigrated to Madras to make his fortune as a merchant. The details 
of his rise there are all wanting; but he probably began in the lowest 
grade of the service, as an apprentice, rising from that to the successive 
ranks of writer, factor, and merchant. We fix the date of his begin- 



THK YALES OF AMERICA 105 

ning by his casual mention in a docnment in 1691, of twenty years' dili- 
gent service in India; but the first notice of him in print is in describing 
the solemnity of proclaiming King James II., at Madras in August, 
1685. There was a grand procession of all the chief merchants, English 
and foreign, great numbers of the inhabitants of the Gentoo town, with 
arms and elephants and kettle drums and native music, besides twelve 
English trumpets; and in the chief place of honor was a troop com- 
manded and led by the President, and the rear brought up by Mr. 
Elihu Yale." He had the reached, as appears by the record of the suc- 
ceeding month, the rank of second member of council, and less than two 
years later had become the senior or first member, — only subordinate, 
to the Governor or President himself. 

At this time the Sultan of Golconda, the petty Mohammedan ruler 
in whose domains the English fort was situated, was attacked by the 
great Indian emperor, reigning at Delhi, Aurung-Zeb, and there was 
need in the complications which might arise, of firmer qualities in the 
Presidency at Madras than the present incumbent, Mr. Gifford, had 
shown. 

Regular promotion was the principle of the service, and accordingly 
the directors in London, acting by their Governor, Sir Josiah Child, 
the eminent writer on finance, sent out orders which were received at 
Madras on the 23d of July, 1687, retiring President Gifi'ord, and ap- 
pointing Elihu Yale his successor. 

Two months later the great Mogul succeeded in conquering the 
fortress of Golconda, and became master in consequence of the North- 
ern Carnatic, the province including Madras; and so it was one of the 
earliest public duties of our American-born President Yale to proclaim 
on the part of Englishmen, the formal ceremonies of submission to the 
last and one of the greatest of the great monarchs of India. 

The Mogul proved to be dissatisfied with the small rental (about 
$2000 a year) paid for the occupancy of the Madras territory, and 
attempted to extort additional sums; and threats were heard of his in- 
tending to besiege the fort and destroy all the English in his dominions. 
The defences were quietly strengthened in consequence, and at the same 

* J. T. Wheeler's Madras in the Olden Time, i, 140. 



106 THE YALES AND WALES 

time conciliatory messages were sent to the Emperor, for which last the 
President was roundly rebuked by his superiors at home. 

In 1689 the accession of William of Orange to the English throne, 
brought a new complication. The rule of William meant war with 
France, and that meant for Madras a collision between her commerce 
and the French settlement at Pondicherry, eighty miles down the coast. 
But the same event brought the Dutch, who were nearer neighbors on 
the north, into closer alliance, and the result of the only naval engage- 
ment of importance, which President Yale superintended, was favorable 
to the allies. 

Meantime the city throve and grew rich. Within the narrow limits 
of the island, garrisoned by seven hundred soldiers, were crowded to- 
gether about one hundred and thirty houses, containing perhaps three 
hundred English and many more Portuguese; while within the bounds 
of the whole territory was a population reckoned at three hundred 
thousand souls. 

Over this multitude the President, acting with the advice of his 
council, was absolute; and even by himself could wield very great power. 
The old traveler. Dr. Fryer, who visited Madras about 1675, describes 
with gusto the Governor's magnificence; his personal guard of three or 
four hundred blacks; how he never goes abroad without fifes, drums, 
trumpets, and a flag; being carried in a gorgeous palankeen, and shaded 
by an ostrich-feather fan. 

But the records show that this splendor had its penalties. Year in 
and year out, a succession of mighty quarrels raged between the Gov- 
ernor and his subordinates in the council, which were relieved perhaps 
but not quenched, by towering accusations and recriminations. 

The prime cause of the attacks on the President appears to have 
been certain frauds in trading operations, alleged to have been com- 
mitted by his brother, Thomas Yale, whose side the President espoused. 
There were further charges against the President directly, of arbitrary 
government, of neglect of duty, and of using the Company's funds for 
private speculation. 

In answer to such charges, in 1691, he states that he has made hon- 
estly during twenty years of diligent service and trading in India, above 
500,000 pagodas, that is some $900,000, — which in comparison with the 
ordinary fortunes of the time would be represented, perhaps, according 



THE YALES OF AMERICA 107 

to our ideas in this century, by three or four millions, or perhaps more. 
And as salaries were so insignificant, practically the whole of this 
large amount must have been derived from the profits of private trade. 
References in letters from the Company seem to show that they regarded 
his success in accumulating as something extraordinary and not alto- 
gether creditable; and yet, that he was reckoned a public benefactor 
must be concluded from such a sentence as this, in a letter of February, 
1691, from the Court of Directors: "We desire our President, Mr. Yale, 
whom God hath blessed with so great an estate in our service, to set on 
foot another generous charitable work before he leaves India; that is, 
the building of a church for the Protestant black people and Portuguese, 
and the slaves who serve them." 

The squables in Council were brought, however, to the ears of the 
Directors, and accompanied with other charges, especially of losing the 
trade with Sumatra. 

A vote of censure was the final result, and a determination was 
reached about the beginning of 1692 to remove Yale from office. It was 
not, however, until November 23d, in that year, that the vessel arrived 
which bore the commission of his successor, and ended his reign of five 
years and four months. 

The settlement of outstanding accounts between him and the Com- 
pany dragged through two or three years, and if one may believe his 
representations to the home authorities, he was grievously plundered by 
arbitrary seizure of his goods, as well as by legal decisions against him; 
and was kept a prisoner at the Fort when longing to return to England, 
with design, as tie says, "to enforce him into despair, or otherwise to 
bring on him some distemper that may hasten his death, which not long 
since by poison was near effected." (Wheeler's Madras, i, 289.) 

• There are ample replies to these charges from the new President 
and Council, detailing their proceedings in conformity to law, but 
claiming that Yale had bribed the judges where he could, and that his 
personal liberty had never been abridged. As to his suggestion of 
poison they say: 

"They that know him will doubtless conclude with us, either this 
bold reflection is no more than the accustomary strains of wicked policy, 
or a salvo for his own credit against the common reports of the unusual 
deaths of several of the Council when he was President; ... if they had 
been living to declare, themselves, what others have since their death 



108 THE YALES AND WALES 



declared as from them, some of Mr. Yale's instruments must have been 
prosecuted, and he would have been put hard to it to clear his own repu- 
tation." 

As to poisoning him: 

"There was never a report that ever we heard, of anything- that 
would give him the least color for such a suggestion since the 3'ear 1691, 
when there was a story told all about the town, of a rogue that tempted 
Mrs. Nicks' slave wench to poison her mistress; and because Mrs. 
Nicks then lived with Mr. Yale at his garden-house (which she and 
Mrs. Pavia, with their children, have and do frequent to the scandal of 
Christianitj'- among the heathens,) therefore he takes occasion to sup- 
pose the design was against himself and to insinuate that the new 
President and Council had a hand in it." 

Probably the truth was not all on either side of the controversy; but 
after this we hear no more of these charges. 

It may be worth while to notice that Yale's successor as President 
was Nathaniel Higginson, another American, and a native of Guilford 
in the old New Haven Colony. He was a grandson of the Rev. Francis 
Higginson, first minister at Salem, whose widow after his early death 
came to New Haven, probably because she was a sister to Governor 
Eaton. This may help to explain how her grandson after graduating 
at Harvard College and going to England to seek his fortune, followed 
Governor Eaton's grandson by marriage, Elihu Yale (who was Nathd,n- 
iel Higginson's senior by three or four years), to Madras, and by his 
help was started in a prosperous career there. Truth obliges the 
statement that Higginson has left a cleaner record, both of official and 
private life in the Indies, than his fellow-countryman and quasi-kins- 
man. 

There is one other unpleasant story, which so far as is.known first 
appeared in print in 1764, in the second edition of John Harris' Collec- 
tion of Voyages (i, 917), to this effect:— In comment on the mildness of 
the penalties usually inflicted in the East India Government, it is men- 
tioned that President Yale hanged one of his grooms for riding a fav- 
orite horse of his without leave, for two or three days' journey into the 
country to take the air; but that Yale was tried on his return to Eng- 
land and heavily fined for the misdemeanor. Later writers enlarge the 
account by stating that his return to England was in order to meet his 
trial for this murder. 

The whole implication in the story as first told, is that it was an 




Erddig Hall. 

This plate shows "Erddig' Hall" of the present day. In thisgrand 
old mansion are preserved deeds, letters and other things connected 
with the early history' of the Yale family, and its ancient associations 
are indelibly related to the lives of some of the first of the name. Mr. 
Philip Yorke, the present proprietor of the estate is a very kindly dis- 
posed g-entleman, who has rendered very valuable assistance to the 
author in connection with this work.

incident of his presidency; but as this does not appear among the var- 
ious charges against him at the time and as full seven years elapsed 
before his return, and as no records of the trial can be discovered in 
England, there is some doubt about the evidence. Not that it disagrees 
with his character; for it is stated that the conclusion of any who study 
the original documents must be that our hero, if hero at all, was like 
the image in Nebuchadnezzar's dream; part of fine gold and part of iron 
and clay. His surroundings must be his most effective defence for a 
record of arrogance, cruelty, sensuality, and greed, while in power at 
Madras. 

In 1699, however, at the age of fiftj'-one, he sailed for England. He 
found that his father, mother and brothers had died, and one of his first 
acts was to prove, as sole survivor of the famil}', the will made many 
years before. 

Soon after his return, he built in London a stately residence, in 
Queen's Square, Great Ormond street, a little to the east of the present 
British Museum, the site of which is now probably occupied by a hos- 
pital, built in later years. 

The Square was a fashionable locality, laid out and built up in the 
reign of Queen Anne, from whom came the name. Though now buried 
in the heart of London, it was then, and for at least fifty j^ears later, 
quite on the outskirst of the city, and the northern side was left open for 
the sake of the beautiful landscape, formed by the hills of Highgateand 
Hampstead, with the intervening fields. 

That his was a palatial establishment and filled with works of art 
and curiosities of great value, appears from the fact that he received as 
insurance from the Sun Fire Office, in January 1719, on account of a 
recent fire in this house, the enormous sum of ;^4,500. 

In connection with his return from India the story has been handed 
down that the first auction ever held in Great Britain was an auction of 
goods brought home with him and sold in 1700; but though this may 
have made an epoch in the history of auctions, it is yet true that the 
system in its essentials can be traced further back:— see, for instance, 
Pepys' Diary for 1660 (Nov. 6), for a notice of the sale by inch of candle, 
a method of auction early in vogue, both on the Continent and in Eng- 
land.*

no THE YALES AND WALES 

It was on May 11, 1711, that Mr. Jeremiah Dummer, the agent at 
London for the Province of Massachusetts Bay, as later also for the 
Colony of Connecticut, first mentions in a letter to the Rev. James Pier- 
pont of New Haven, the principal founder of the CoUeg-iate School at 
Saybrook, that "Mr. Yale, formerly Governor of Fort St. George, who 
has got a prodigious estate," having no son, is sending to Connecticut for 
a relation to make him his heir; that is, I suppose, to secure the descent 
of the landed property in Wales to one of the Yale name. ' 'He told me 
lately," adds Dummer, "that he intended to bestow a charity upon 
some college in Oxford, under certain restrictions which he mentioned. 
But / think he should rather do it to your college, seeing he is a New 
England and I think a Connecticut man. If, therefore, when his kins- 
man comes over, you will write him a proper letter on that subject, I 
will take care to press it home."* 

Pierpont was not a man to neglect such an opportunity, and no 
doubt when young David Yale, a boy of fifteen, son of the oldest cousin 
of the governor, was sent over, in the j^ear 1714, he carried "a proper 
letter," describing the achievements and aspirations of the college at 
Saybrook. 

About the same time Dummer was collecting from all his friends a 
gift of books for the college library, and when these (upwards of seven 
hundredjvolumes in all) were received in 1714, between thirty and forty 
volumes (the most from any single donor except the collector himself) 
were marked as given by Governor Yale. The selection, which was 
presumably his own, is an uncommonlj'- broad one; there are good rep- 
resentatives of theologv', history, chronology, polite literature, classics, 
metaphysics, natural science, medicine, political science, commerce, 
agriculture, military science, and architecture, — providing we may say, 
some foundation for every one of the present departments in the univers- 
ity which was then so completely in embryo. 

President Clap (Annals, p. 23) has stated that another gift of three 
hundred volumes followed this three j^ears later; but the contemporary 
records, which appear to be full on this subject, have no trace of it, and 
there is reason to think that the statement is a wrong inference of Clap's, 
from a vote passed in 1717 wHh reference to other gifts bj' Dummer 

In October, 1716, a majority of the trustees of the Collegiate School

THE YALES OF AMERICA 111 

voted to remove it from Saybrook to New Haven, and in the same month 
instruction was actually begun in temporary quarters here; and a year 
later the first colleg-e house was raised, — that stupendous architectural 
monstrosity, which stood till the Revolution in front of the present South 
Colleg-e. We may form a good idea of its appearance by imagining a 
wooden building the length of Durfee College, and of three-quarters its 
height, but of only one-half the width, and painted moreover a beautiful 
cerulean color. 

The trustees were utterly without resources to finish so elegant a 
building; but they had probably begun it with a more or less distinct 
hope of help from abroad, and in their extremity one good friend of the 
college. Dr. Cotton Mather, of Boston, was appealed to, whose powers 
of persuasion proved equal to the need. On the 14th of January, 1718, 
he wrote to Governor Yale a remarkable letter, in which he praised skil- 
fully the Governor's well-known charity, and solicits his favor towards 
the college at New Haven; with a happy vein of prophecy, linking the 
two words that had never been joined before, as they now stand linked 
to all the future. "Sir," said he, "though you have felicities in your 
family, which, I pray, God continue and multiply, yet certainly, if 
what is forming at New Haven might wear the name of Yale College, 
it would be better than a name of sons and daughters. And your mu- 
nificence might easily obtain for you a commemoration and perpetuation 
of your valuable name, which would indeed be much better than an 
Egyptian pyramid."* 

It is the fashion to sneer at Cotton Mather for his lively imagination 
and his overweening credulity; but no inspired vision could have given 
him firmer ground for his faith that was in him. The morsel, the merest 
fragment of his great possessions, which the rich man, thoughtlessly 
perhaps, and possibly grudgingly, cast on the waters, in response to 
this appeal, has not been lost or scattered. It has brought to his name 
great honor, and fame more enduring than any possible material struct- 
ure of man. 

Dummer, meantime, was "endeavoring to get a present from Mr. 
Yale for finishing the college;" and his interviews, seconded by such 
letters as Mather's, bore welcome fruit. 

On June 11th, 1718, there were shipped from Governor Yale in a

112 THE YALES AND WALES 

vessel bound for Boston, three bales or trunks of valuable g-oods, to be 
sold for the benefit of the college; and with these the full-length portrait 
of King George I., by Kneller, which still g-races the college collection* 
an escutcheon representing the royal arms, which was destroyed in the 
Revolution, and a large box of books, — the entire value of the gift being 
estimated at ;^800. An invoice of a part of the goods is still preserved, 
with its enumeration of "25 pieces of g-arlix (whatever that may be), 18 
pieces of calico, 17 pieces of stuff (that is, worsted goods), 12 pieces 
Spanish poplin, 5 pieces plain muslin, 3 pieces camlet, and 2 of black 
and white silk crape;" — these being set down as worth ^^130 at prime cost, 
but bringing in Boston three times that amount. Besides there were 
other parcels sold unbroken at the same two hundred per cent advance, 
making the entire proceeds of the g-ift, in hard money, £S62, 123. Three 
years elapsed before the goods were all sold and paid for, but it is prob- 
able the money was all swallowed up in meeting the bills for the erec- 
tion of the new college, which is said to have cost nearly ;i^lOOO. It was 
a crisis in the history of the institution; for though it is hard to imag- 
ine the turn of events if the trustees had not received this help, it 
seems extremely doubtful if they could have finished their new building 
at once; and every delay would have strengthened immensely the fac- 
tion opposed to the removal to New Haven, which now was conducting a 
rival college at Wethersfield, and which might very probably, but for 
this timely contribution, have succeeded in endowing the rival and 
choking out the New Haven original. 

It is saying little to note that this was by far the largest sum which 
the college during the first twenty years of its struggling existence had 
received from any private person. Nor should we judge from our mod- 
ern notions of large endowments, that Governor Yale earned his immor- 
tality too cheaply. It was really for those times a munificent gift; and 
the giver remained for a full century, the largest individual donor to the 
college funds; until the receipt of $10,000 in 1837 from the estate of Dr. 
Alfred E. Perkins, for the library. 

The news of this great gift reached New Haven a few days before 
the Commencement celebration. 

The story of that splendid and long remembered Commencement is 
no doubt familiar to all who have glanced at the annals of the college. 
On that bright September morning, in the year 1718, "we were favored

and honored," writes the contemporary chronicler, Tutor Johnson, 
"with the presence of his Honor Governor Saltonstall and his lady, 
and the Honorable Colonel Tailer of Boston, and the Lieutenant Gov- 
ernor and whole Superior Court," also a g"reat number of reverend min- 
isters and a g-reat concourse of spectators. The trustees, meeting- in the 
new building "first most solemnly" in the sonorous Latin periods still 
spread upon their records, "named our college by the name of Yale Col- 
lege . . . upon which the Hon. Col. Tailer," who had been sent over by 
Queen Anne as Lieutenant Governor of Massachusetts Bay, and who 
in anticipation of these festivities had made the toilsome journey from 
Boston, "represented Governor Yale in a speech, expressing his great 
satisfaction." 

At the public exercises in the church, there was a pleasant rivalry 
in Latin compliments to the absent Maecenas from the salutatory orator 
of the graduating class (a son of James Pierpont), from one of the Trus- 
tees (a grandson of John Davenport), and most elegantly of all from that 
superb old Puritan, Governor baltonstall himself. 

And before they separated the Trustees composed a profuse and 
painful letter of thanks, at which, as Dummer reports in due season, 
the old gentleman was more than a little pleased, "saving that he 
expressed at first some kind of concern whether it was well in him, be- 
ing a churchman, to promote an Academy of Dissenters. But when he 
had discoursed the point freely, he appeared convinced that the busi- 
ness of good men is to spread religion and learning among mankind, 
without being too fondly attached to particular tenets about which the 
world never was, nor never will be, agreed. Besides," adds Dummer, 
"if the discipline of the Church of England be most agreeable to Script- 
ure and primitive practice, there's no better way to make men sensible 
of it than by giving them a good learning." 

It is surely alike to the honor of the givers and of the recipients that 
the great benefactors of this College in its first century, Elihu Yale and 
George Berkeley, were both churchmen, as the greatest benefactor of 
Harvard in the same century was Thomas Hollis, a Baptist. 

It does not appear that any additions were made to these gifts until 
February, 1721, when Dummer writes to Governor Saltonstall that Mr. 
Yale has shipped another ;/;iOO worth of goods for the College. "This, 
however is but half what he promised me a month ago, when he assured 



114 THE YALES AND WALES 

me he would remit j^ou ;^200 sterling per annum during- his life, and 
make a settled annual provision to take place after his death. But old 
g-entlemen are forgetful '' The College records do not show clearly 
whether the shipment here referred to was actually received; but there 
seems no reason to doubt that it was. The name, "Yale College," was 
changed to "Yale University" in 1887, by authority o'' the General 
Assembl}^ of the State. 

It is probable that Mr. Yale intended to make an additional sub- 
stantial bequest to the college in his will, but he died so suddenly that 
it was left unsigned. According to Dummer's letters there was a will 
partly finished which contained a legacy for the college (stated b}^ Rec- 
tor Clap to have been ;^500). Mr. Dummer made every effort to secure 
this legacy for the college, but the sons-in-law resisted and were suc- 
cessful. 

It is due Mr. Yale, however, if there were any seeming lack of gen- 
erosity in his last years, on his part, to the college which bore his 
name, to explain that in 1718 he lost ;^40,000 through the absconding of 
Sir Matthew Kirwood, Knt., goldsmith. Sir Matthew was banker to 
Edward Pauncefort, Esq., one of the receivers general to the Commis- 
sioners of Assize, and Governor Yale was surety for the banker in a 
penal bond for the sum mentioned. Mr. Yale sued out a writ of error 
against the Crown, and soon after his death his widow and adminis- 
tratrix, Katherine Yale, obtained a new writ of error to reverse the 
judgment. The loss of this large amount, which in those times would 
be considered an enormous sum, was no doubt sufficient to cause a per- 
son, even in^his affluent circumstances, to curtail and perhaps abandon 
expenditures which might have been contemplated. 

Returning to the narrative of Mr. Yale's life, we find that on No- 
vember 4, 1680, he married, at St. Mary's, Fort St. George, Madras, 
Catharine (Katharine), widow of Mr. Joseph Hynmers, a former mem- 
ber of the council, and daughter of Mrs. Ann Elford. It is regrettable 
to have to admit, in the light of historical evidence heretofore men- 
tioned, that he also was living during his residence at Madras in im- 
moral relations with a Mrs. Nicks and a Mrs. Pavia, the latter a Por- 
tuguese Jewess, at his garden house in Fort St. George. It has been 
stated by Peters, a writer given to questionable statements, that Mrs. 
Hynmers was a copper-colored native of India, but this statement is dis- 



THE YALES OB^ AMERICA 115 

countenanced by Professor Dexter and other reliable authorities. Mr. 
Dexter states, however, that she may have been of Portug-uese descent, 
and possibly a jew^ess; but Mr. Alfred Neobard Palmer is of the opinion 
that this inference is also quite unlikely, and it seems very probable 
that she was an Engflishwoman. 

Mr. Yale lived at Plas Grono, in Wales, directly after his return 
from India, as his name occurs in the parish books of Wrexham for the 
year 1699; and while, as stated heretofore, he erected a splendid resi- 
dence in London, he spent much of his time for many years at Plas 
Grono, the family estate near Wrexham, Wales In 1704 he was made 
hig-h sheriff of Denbighshire, and to show that he was residing at Plas 
Grono in 1707, will state that the following entry appears in the parish 
register at Wrexham, under date of September 23, 1707: "Mary 
Vinkety, tonemoore, Servant of Elihu Yale, Marchant of place Cronow 
in Esclusham below Ditch, was Buryed." He was also often present at 
the vestry meetings of Wrexham, as is evidenced by his signature to the 
resolutions passed. 

In 1707 he erected at his sole cost a g"allery across the east end of 
the nave in the parish church of Wrexham (St. Giles). This gallery 
took the place of the old rood loft, which was removed in 1662. This 
g^allery contained several pews, of which Mr. Yale retained six in front 
for his own disposal. In 1718, becoming dissatisfied with the position 
of his gallery, he obtained permission to remove it to the western end of 
the nave, where it appears to have remained until 1779, when a new 
gallery was erected. He also gave to the church a picture of the Lord's 
Supper, incorrectly ascribed to Titian, which was sold to Mrs. Isher- 
wood, of Gresford, in 1842; and a picture representing- King David play- 
ing upon the harp, which still remains. Further, he re-f!agged the altar 
space, also re-railed it, and supplied a new altar table with a marble 
top, which was subsequently removed to Berse Drelincourt Chapel. He 
g-ave, as well, a new pulpit and sounding board, a clock dial, a read- 
ing desk and a carving of the Royal Arms of England. It has been 
claimed, also, that he gave to the church the beautiful wrought iron 
chancel screen or gates, when the eastern gallery was removed, but 
there is no positive evidence on this point; however, the style of the 
screen is that of the earlier years of the eighteenth century. Although 
Governor Yale resided at Plas Grono, that modest, yet quite amply dis- 



116 THE YALES AND WALES 

posed and home-like place described more fully in connection with the 
bioo-raphy of Elihu's ancestors, his permanent residence was no doubt 
in London after his return from India until his death. On July 18, 
1718, he is described as "of the parish of St. Andrew, hobourne, in the 
county of Middlesex, esq.," St Andrew's being- the parish to which 
Queen's Square belong-ed. It is stated that he was elected a Fellow of 
the Ro3'al Society of London in the early part of 1718. 

In summing- up other incidents of record in Mr. Yale's life, it is well 
to state that in a list headed: " Foundation of Charity School Bers is 
owning- to the following subscribers, set up 1st Nov. 1719," his name ap- 
pears as "Mr. Yale," in connection with those of Mr. Myddelton, of 
Chirk Castle, and Mrs. Egerton, as a contributor, by promise of ^^5 
yearly. This refers to Berse Drelincourt. 

Perhaps the most interesting of all of the unofficial items pertaining 
to Elihu Yale is a Japanese metal screen, purchased by Mr. Yale in 
India about the j^ear 1682, and forwarded by him to a friend in "Wales. 
(No doubt this friend was Mr. Josua Edisbury, of Erddig Hall.) 
This screen is still in existence, and is owned by Mr. Philip Yorke, 
Esq., of Erddig Hall, near Wrexham, through whose kindness the au- 
thor was able to obtain a photograph of same, which is reproduced here- 
with. Of almost if not quite equal interest is the original letter written 
by Mr. Yale, April 20, 1682, in reference to this same screen, and in 
which he acknowledges receipt, as well, of "four Rundletts of Sand- 
patch Ale." This letter is also preserved at Erddig Hall, and we are 
greatly indebted to Mr. Yorke for a photograph of same, which is re- 
produced herewith. This letter is certainly decidedly clever and inter- 
esting, and gives us in a measure renewed insight into his character. 
Neither the screen or letter have ever before been reproduced. How- 
ever, the letter is copied in print in Mr. Alfred Neobard Palmer's book, 
"The Country Townships of the Old Parish of Wrexham," and this 
printed copy by Mr. Palmer is given herewith, together with his ex- 
planatory notes, as it may be of some aid in reading the photographic 
copy:

church warden's books at Wrexham, Wales.

The same Josua Edisbury, Esq., of Erddig Hall, to whom Elihu 's

and borrowed from Mr. Yale ;^2,000, for which later on, when his estate 
was being disposed of to satisfy his creditors, he gave Elihu a bond for

118 THE YALES AND WALES 

Mr. Yale, in connection with this transaction, was said to be, as 
before stated, "of the parish of St. Andrews, ho bourne, in the county of 
Middlesex, esq." There seems to have been some slight discrepancy in 
the records, as the actual sum due him was reported ^^3, 511-14-5, and as 
there was not sufficient money in Mr. Olebar's hands to pay in full, he 
proportioned the amount due from the estate on the bond as ;^3, 370-16-11, 
and in consideration of this sum paid to him, Mr. Yale released the bond 
and judgment to Mr. Vig-erus Edwards, in trust for Mr. John Mellor, 
who had purchased the Edisbury estate. This estate, Erddig Hall, as 
has been heretofore set forth, was owned in earlier times by Elihu 
Yale's g-reat-grandfather. Dr. David Yale. 

Having noted all the events in Governor P:iihu Yale's career which 
public and private records seem able to disclose, we now come to the 
closing days of his life. 

On Saturday, July 8, 1721, the Weekly Journal and British Gaz- 
eteer of London, announced that "Elihu Yale, Esq., commonly called 
Governor Yale, a gentleman eminently known for his extensive charity, 
lies at the point of death at his house in Queen's Square, Great Ormond 
Street " He died before the close of that day, aged 72 years, 3 months 
and 3 days. The last consolation of religion, if offered, must have been 
-by the vicar of the parish church of St. Andrew's, Holborn, the noted 
Dr. Henry Sacheverell, the Tory partisan, whose conviction by the 
House of Peers caused such great excitement a few years before. In 
the issue of the "Daily Post," London, on Tuesday, July 18. 1721, the 
follow^ing appeared: "Yesterday morning the corpse of Elihu Yale, 
Esq., was carried out of town, in order to be interred at Wrexham, in 
Wales." The distance from London to Wrexham is nearly 200 miles, 
and it was Jul^^ 22 when Wrexham was reached and the interment took 
place in the yard of the old parish church of Wrexham, (St. Giles.) 

In the month of March, 1722, the "Evening Post" of London an- 
nounced an auction, soon to be held at Governor Yale's late residence in 
Queen's Square, and the enumeration of the list of articles is interest- 
ing, and illustrates in some degree his tastes and mode of living. It in- 
cluded a collection of jewels, among which was a celebrated diamond 
ring that formerly belonged to Mary, Queen of Scots; diamond and 
pearl necklaces; gold repeating and silver w^atches; household plate, in- 
luding several dozens of silver plates; a large collection of valuable 



THh: YALES OP AMERICA 119 

pictures; a great variety of India cabinets, and divers sorts of house- 
hold goods; brass cannon; curious firearms; mathematical instruments; 
several parcels of fine silks, linens and muslin; and many valuable cu- 
riosities in gold, silver and agate. 

On the 12th and 13th of August, 1728, by indentures of lease and re- 
lease, the heirs-at-law of Elihu Yale, in consideration of ;^5,02S, sold 
the Plas Grono estate to George Wynne, Esq., (afterguards Sir George 
"Wynne, baronet), of Leesw^ood, Flintshire, to Mr. Meredith and to Mr. 
Williams, the respective shares of the purchase money being thus ap- 
portioned: Mr. Wynne, ;^3, 128-17-43^; Mr. Meredith, £U2-19-3%; and 
Mr. Williams, ^1,753-3-4. The foregoing particulars were taken from 
a memorandum at Erddig Hall by Mr. A. N. Palmer, Esq. This estate 
thus disposed of included Old Plas Grono ^afterwards known as Plas* 
Grono Farm), New Plas Grono, Llwyn Enion, and various other lands. 

It will be noted that Plas Grono was sold by Elihu Yale's descend- 
ants as "heirs-at-law, " and not as devisees; so it is clear that he left no 
will, or at least none properly signed and attested. 

The vendors of the Plas Grono estate in 1728 are thus described in 
the conveyance later on by Mr. W3mne to Mr. Mellor in 1731, and being 
a legal description of record, is of interest, i. e.: 

"Dudlev North, the younger, Esq., son and heir apparent of Dud- 
ley North of Glemham in the countv of Suffolk, esq., by Catherine, his. 
late wife, deceased, who was the e dest of the three dautrhters and Co- 
heirs of Elihu "Yale, late of Pla- Grono, als Plas Newydd, als Tu Cer- 
rig, in the township of Esclusham, in the county of Denbigh, Esq., 
deceased, and also nephew and one of the two Co-heirs of Ursula 
Yale, late of Queen's Square, Ormond Street, in the county of Middle- 
sex, deceased, who was the youngest daughter and one of the thr^^e Co- 
heirs of the said Elihu Yale; the Right Honble James Cavendish, E-q., 
cowonly called Lord James Cavendish, youngest brother of the Most 
Noble William, Duke of Devonshire, and Ann his wife, cowonly called 
Lady Cavendish, second daughter and one other of the Coheirs of the 
said Elihu Yale, and only Surviving Sister, and one of the two coheirs 
of the said Ursula Yale; and the said Dudley North the elder, executor 
of the last Will and Testament of the said Ursula Yale." 

In reference to Elihu being noted for his ''extensive charity," as 
mentioned in the London newspaper, July 8, 1721, it is not definitely 
known in what way this charity was evidenced; however, Mr. Dexter 
states in his paper on "Governor Elihu Yale," that he offered in 1718, 



120 THE YALES AND WALES 

to the "Society for the Propag-ation of the Gospel" 100 gfuineas for buy- 
ing- or building for them suitable quarters. Mr. Dexter also states that 
the church of St. George the Martyr was erected in 1706, at the south- 
west angle of Queen's Square, by private subscription from residents in 
the neighborhood, and that it is tradition that it was named in honor of 
one of the founders who had been g-overnor of Fort St. George. If this 
tradition is true it must have meant Governor Elihu Yale. 

No more fitting- close can be g-iven to the biography of Elihu Yale 
than to quote the closing paragraph of Professor Franklin B. Dexter's 
paper, i. e.: 

"But though we cannot claim him as 'town born, ' there is no English- 
man, there is no American, who has done more to make New Haven 'a 
name and a praise through all the earth' than the timely giver, who 
made the fluttering, precarious existence of Yale College a blessed cer- 
tainty." 

Mr. Yale's plain altar-tomb, in the churchyard of the beautiful an- 
cient parish church in Wrexham, stands on a line with the northern 
wall of the magnificent west tower. The inscriptions have been re-cut, 
or replaced, in modern times. The oldest known copy of the nine lines 
on the north side is that given in Pennant's "Tours in Wales (1778)," 
which reads thus: 

"Born in America, in Europe bred 
In Africa travell'd, and in Asia wed, 
Where long he liv'd and thriv'd; at London dead. 
Much good, some ill, he did; so hope all's even, 
And that his soul thro' mercy's gone to heaven 
You that survive, and read, take care 
For this most certain exit to prepare. 
For only the actions of the just 
Smell sweet and blossom in the dust." 

The alterations have been made from time to time. Now the lines 
read as follows: 

"Born in America, in Europe bred, 
In Africa travell'd and in Asia wed, 
Where long he liv'd and thriv'd; in London dead. 
Much good, some ill, he did; so hope all's even. 
And that his soul thro' mercy's gone to heaven. 
You that survive and read this tale take care, 



THE YALES OF AMERICA 121 



For this most certain exit to prepare, 
"Where blest in peace, the actions of the just 
Smell sweet, and blossom in the silent dust." 

This poetical leg-end is apparently an imitation of the Duns Scotus 
epitaph at Cologne. 

Formerly there was an inscribed stone at the east end, which was 
removed in later years. It was inscribed as follows: "In the year of 
our Lord MDCCCXX this tomb underwent a general repair by the Par- 
ish to commemorate the memory of him who so liberally contributed to 
the improvement of this church." At the west end are the words: "Re- 
stored by the authorities of Yale College, U. S., 1874 and 1895." 

The inscription on the south side of the tomb is as follows: ' 'Eliugh 
Yale, Esq., was buried, the twenty-second of July, in the year of our 
Lord MDCCXXI." The spelling of his first name is a stone-cutter's 
error, as Mr. Yale spelled his name himself "Elihu."

supposed to have lived in that part of New Haven, now North Haven, on 
or near the farm of Mr. John Gill, of that place. He was an extensive

can be learned. 

Mr. John Yale died December 16, 1711, aged 65 years. Mrs. Rebecca 
Yale died October 17, 1734, aged 78 years. The tombstone erected to 
her memory was in 1850, standing in the old graveyard in North Haven.

Capt. Thomas Yale, first of New Haven, and afterwards of Wall- 
ingford, in the same state, was thrice married — 1st, to Rebecca, daughter 
of William Gibbards, Esq., of New Haven, December 11, 1667, by William 
Jones, Esq., Deputy Governor; 2d, to Sarah Nash, daughter of John 
Nash, Esq. She died May 27, 1716, and he married, 3d, Mary Beach, 
of Wallingford, July 31, 1716. He had no issue by the two last wives. 
About two years after his first marriage, he, with others, began to 
agitate the settlement of Wallingford, to which place he removed in 
May, 1670, with a small band of other adventurers, under the guidance 
and direction of the New Haven Committee, as it was called. By the records 
of Wallingford, it appears that he was one of the most prominent, active 
and energetic men among them. He assisted in the formation of the 
church, February 15, 1675, and in the call of the first and second ministers, 
viz:— the Rev. Samuel Street, in 1672, and Rev. Samuel Whittelsey, 
April 4. 1709 

In 1710 himself and the Rev. Samuel Street were the only surviving 
signers of the Plantation Covenant of Wallingford. September 19, 1710 
he was one of a committee of three appointed to sell Indian lands, etc., 
in the town. He was a justice of the peace, captain of the train-band, 
surveyor of land, and moderator of their meetings, and kept the records 
of their proceedings for nearly twenty years. 

Capt. Thomas Yale died at Wallingford, January 26, 1736, aged 89 
years. 

Mrs. Rebecca Yale, his first wife, was born at New Haven, Feb- 
ruary 26, 1650, and died in Wallingford,

occupied b}' five generations of his family, from Revolutionary war times 
to 1867. 

The residence is situated on the south side of East Main St., about 
three fourths of a mile east of Broad Street. The estate orig-inally 
comprised the land on both sides of Main St., extending across the valley. 
The residence now on the estate was built in 1799, but is not the original 
one. This estate was purchased by Abel Yale, father of Daniel, at the 
time Rev. Theophilus Hall came to Meriden as pastor; the farm he 
previously owned being purchased by the church for Rev. Hall. 

He enlisted in 1776, in Capt. John Couch's company of Bradley's 
battallion, Wadsworth's brigade, for his country's service in the Revolu- 
tionary war. In the summer and part of the fall of 1776, his battallion 
was stationed at Bergen Heights and Paulus Hook, and in October of 
same year at Fort Lee under Gen. Greene. Then in November was 
sent to assist in the defense of Fort Washington, which fell November 
16, and the entire garrison was captured. On his way home after his 
discharge he was taken with the small-pox, and after untold suffering 
was taken in and cared for by an aged woman, whose name unfortunatelj^ 
has not been preserved. 

Mr. Daniel Yale died March 28, 1834, aged 84 years. 

Mrs. Phebe Yale died November 17, 1835, aged 80 years. 

The descendents of Daniel Yale, maintained for many years a

were a source of much pleasure to the participants..

Mrs. Yale died September 28, 1869, in Patterson N. Y. 

Note: Mrs. Lloyd B. Dennis, granddaughter of Benj. Yale, states that 
he was importuned to send one of his sons to Wales, for adoption by the 
family, then in possession of the Yale estate, near Wrexham, when the 
sons were young men, as there was then no male heir; but he declined 
to accept this kind and well meant request, evidently feeling reluctant to 
send a son so far away.

which himself and family have lived ever since. The house is of hard 
wood, and has in later years been remodeled into a modern family 
residence. Mrs. Tolman went with her parents from New York state, 
to Lee Co. 111., in 1836. It is stated she is g-ifted with the power of 
healing- and that many invalids have been cured through her instru- 
mentality. At their g-olden wedding she received many tokens of appre- 
ciation, bestowed in rememberance of her worthy acts and in commem- 
oration of the high esteem in which she is held in the community.

She was daughter of Captain Thaddeus and Christiana Rich of 
Cheshire. 

Judge Elihu Yale was the author and compiler of the original Yale 
Genealogy published in 1850, and his name should be honored and his 
memory kept green in the hearts of all Yale descendants, as a tribute 
to his tireless, unselfish, perserveringand successful efforts in collecting, 
compiling and preserving the priceless records, which after over two 
years of ceaseless and oftentimes discouraged labor and research, he 
finally brought together in book form. 

He first lived at Wallingford, Conn., but later resided at Cheshire, 
Conn., where he was Post Master and Judge of the Probate Court, at 
the time he was compiling the Yale Genealogy. He afterwards removed 
to New Haven in 1851, and during his residence there, he was a member 
of the citj'^ common council five years, Chief of Police three years, also 
constable and Justice of the Peace. He was also engaged in the marble 
business there for many years.

Biography of Linus Yale Sr. 

Linus Yale, first of Middletown, Conn., and later of Newport, 
Herkimer County, N. Y., married Chlotilda Hopson, September 27, 1815. 
She was born May 6, 1797. 

To Linus Yale Sr., belong-s the honor of being- the original inventor 
of locks to which the name "Yale" was given. His son, Linus Yale Jr., 
was the actual inventor in later years of the pin tumbler, fiat keyed 
lock, which brought to the name the universal and world-wide celebrity 
and made the name Yale synonymous with excellence and high stand- 
ard in the lock world; but the father was the pioneer in the Yale lock 
field; he hewed the way, opened the road and led the advance, that 
eventually reached to great fame for his family name. 

He was born April 27, 1797, in Middletown, Conn. His parents 
moved to Salisbury, Herkimer Co., N. Y., where he resided with them 
on a farm for a time. About 1835 he removed to Newport, N. Y., and in 
1837 he was granted a patent on threshing machines. This patent was 
signed by President Andrew Jackson. Previously, in 1829-1830 he had 
invented a process for dressing mill stones, by which an unskilled work- 
man could sharpen the grinding surface as well as a skilled mechanic. 
Later on he invented the "Yale sawmill head block dog," which 
mechanically adjusted the log with rapidity and exactness and has 
never been surpassed; no sawmill was thought to be well equipped 
without it He disposed of this patent and used the money received for 



THE YALES OF AMERICA 295 

same to build and equip a factory for the manufacture of locks, which 
were his chief inventions. He also made numerous inventions besides 
those mentioned and almost always sold them, to provide funds for the 
upbuilding- of the lock business. 

About 1840-1845 he commenced the manufacture of the Yale bank lock, 
which with its improvements, became famous wherever treasures were 
protected by safes or vaults. About 1847 he brought out the "Yale Mag-ic 
Bank Lock," and in that year he purchased the land and water rights 
where the ruins of the "old Yale lock factory" now stand in Newport, 
and built the stone building which is shown in the plate in this book. 
He obtained power for his factory from a small stream, by building two 
dams, which stored sufficient water to operate the works. A very suc- 
cessful business was conducted at these works for many years. During 
this later period Mr. Yale associated with himself in the lock business. 
Mr. Ira L. Cady, who married his daughter Chlotilda Yale, and for 
whom he built a home in the upper part of the village, known as "the 
Cady place;" the house being of octagonal form and built of stone. It 
still stands near the old lock factory, and is one of the beauties of New- 
port's architecture. Mr. Ira L. Cadj- became prominent as an expert 
in all work in connection with the construction of safes and vaults, 
using in his work the Yale locks. Mr. Cady, for business reasons, 
mainly to secure the advantages of themetroplis in distribution, removed 
later to New York City, where he continued in the sale of bank locks and 
safe work. 

Mr. Yale's son Linus Jr., joined him in the lock business, in 1849, 
and later became, as set forth in his biographj'- in this volume, the 
greatest of all men in the art of lock making. The son finally engaged 
in the lock business on his own account, and about the year 1855, removed 
his business to Philadelphia. 

Linus Yale Sr., was a sound thinker and of eminently independent 
judgement, and his opinions on all public questions affecting the com- 
munity, were greatly respected; and his excellent judgement was espe- 
cially manifested in connection with the proposed building of the rail- 
road from Herkimer to Clayton, when his practical judgement was proof 
against the enthusiasm of the hour, and the then impractical project was 
abandoned; thus saving the community from a great burden, which 
later events proved would have been almost disastrous. He was one of 



296 



THE YALES AND WALE S 



the two directors in this proposed company, appointed from Herkimer 
county. 

Mr. Linus Yale, Sr., died in 1857, and the business at Newport,, 
was carried on by Messers, Tyler and Harris, as his successors. In 
1861 the plant and business was purchased by Harris brothers, who 
successfully conducted the business for many years, after which they 
disposed of same to a party in Albany, who pursued in the same lines 
for a time. Recently however, theentire plant, g-ood will, name and etc., 
have been purchased by parties in the central part of the state and re- 
located nearer the old home. During- all these chang-es in ownership, 
the business never lost its connection with the name "Yale" and perhaps 
never will. It mig-ht be well to state ag-ain here, however, that the 
greatest prominence given to the name of Yale, in connection with locks, 
was brought out by the branch of the business founded by the son, Linus 
Yale, Jr., as set forth in his biography herein.

Gad Lowrey Yale, of Galva, 111., was married October 16, 1836, to 
Abby W. Reed, a daughter of William Reed, of Goshen, Conn., and later 
of Knox, Co. 111. She was born in 1816. He married secondly to Mary 
M. Wilsey, August 26, 1849, who was born December 13, 1821, at Troy, 
Bradford Co., Penn. She was a daughter of William H. Wilsey, and 
Catharine Maynard-Wilsey. 

William H. and Catharine M. Wilsey had three children: William 
H. Wilsey, Jr., late of Mapleton and Little Sioux, la., born May 6, 1822; 
Sabrina (Mrs. Jacob Cramer) of Galva, Kans., and Mary M. Wilsey- 
Yale. Catharine Maynard was born in Vermont, and went with her 
parents to Pennsylvania, where she married Mr. Wilsey. He died 
while their three children were quite young, and she married Oliver 
Stoddard, and moved in 1836, first to Ohio, then to Michigan, and thence 
to Peoria, Co., 111., where Catharine died at the age of 50 years. 

Mrs. Mary M. W. Yale was a school teacher for a number of years

THE YALES OF AMERICA 331 

to Knox, Co., 111., in 1840, and purchased quite a large tract of land in 
Lynn Township, Knox Co. The country there was new at that time, 
and Chicag-o, then only a small place, was the favored trading- point, 
140 miles distant. A trip to Chicag-o, with wag-ons loaded with wheat 
and hauled with ox teams, was not an unusual, yet a formidable under- 
taking- in those days; returning with supplies for the farm and home. 
The material for a large barn built on the Lynn Township farm, was 
partly hauled from Chicago in this manner. 

Mr. Yale was an enterprising, energetic, genial and courageous man 
of unswerving integrity, and respected by all who knew him. He was 
an invalid for the last six years of his life, and died on his Lynn Town- 
ship farm, April 14, 1882. Yale school in Lynn Township, was named 
after him. 

Mrs. Mary M. W. Yale died March 7, 1894, at the home of her 
daughter Mrs. Adella Yale-Hunt, at Palisade, Nebr. She was a well 
educated woman of a most kind and unselfish disposition and devoted

They were: William Henry, born June 2, 1835; 
Sarah Booth, born May 15, 1837; 
Peter, July 27, 1840; 

All of these children were yet young- and needed a mothers care 
and advice, when Caroline came into their life, and she was to them at 
all times and under all circumstances, all that a mother could be; for 
which they have all been very grateful, and speak and write of her in 
words of deepest love and regard. Her husband, Mr. Elisha Dutton 
Mansfield, died March 21, 1869, and she with her step-son, Peter, and 
her only own child, Hugh W., removed soon thereafter to Virginia, where 
they remained about three years, when she and son Hugh W. went to 
live at Winsted, Conn., where she died March 9, 1900. 

Mr. William H. Mansfield died at West Hartford, Conn., January 
9, 1907, from pneumonia, revered and loved by all who knew him. He 
was a man of kind and engaging disposition and had occupied many 
positions of trust and honor during his life time. His brother Peter, 
resides on the fine farm in West Hartford, where the two had passed 
many years together. Peter has a daughter. Miss. Mary Page Mans-

pany's store in New York City, until the latter part of 1886. Mr. Yale 
was frequently called to serve his townsmen in office. He served in the 
General Assembly, of Connecticut, in the years 1874 and 1878. He also 
represented the Sixth Senatorial district, in the State Senate, of Connec- 
ticut, in the years 1875, 1883 and 1884, being twice elected to that office; 
took an active and prominent part in these sessions, and was ever 
ready and effective in the advocacy of all measures he deemed es- 
sential to the welfare of the people. He w^as an eloquent and effective

business man. He is survived by his two sons, Charles B. ana George

Biography of Linus Yale, Jr. 

Linus Yale Jr., of Newport, Herkimer Co., N. Y., was married 
September 14, 1844, to Catharine Brooks, who was born in 1818, at New 
Fane, Vermont. 

She died March 22, 1900, at Deerfield, Mass. 

The greater portion of the honor of making the family name Yale, 
prominent and well known throughout the world, belongs to two men. 
Gov. Elihu Yale, for whom Yale University was named, and Linus 
Yale Jr., the inventor of the "Yale Lock." Previously numerous in- 
ventions had been brought out and perfected by his father, Linus Yale 
Sr., and himself , pertaining to bank locks; but it was the invention of 
the separate cylinder, pin tumbler, revolving plug lock, with the small 
flat key, which so completely revolutionized the lock business of the time, 
and made the Yale lock so popular and universally known and accepted 
as the standard. This great invention was made and perfected in 1860 
to 1864, and U. S. patents covering same, were issued to Mr. Yale- 
January 29, 1861, and June 27, 1865. Proper cre^i^^ ' _ l.^s father 
Linus Yale Sr., for the original inventions, '""""^ .^ r/, of the first locks, 
to which the name "Yale" was given, !}y an admiring and grateful 
public; but as indicated, it was the lock invented later by Linus Yale 
Jr., with the small flat key, for general service, which obtained and 
held such world wide popularity, and made the name famous, and 
synonymous of the highest standard of excellence, wherever locks are 
used. 

Mr. Yale possessed a finely poised artistic and mechanical temper- 
ment. He was well educated and in his earlier life, was a portrait 
painter of much ability, and among his productions in this line, was an 
excellent oil portrait of his father, which is possessed by his daughter, 
Mrs. Madeline Yale Wynne. He nearly alwa3's had a pencil in his 
hand, with which he sketched as he talked; sometimes it would be a 
sketch of a head or some bit of picturesque scenery, and again of some 
invention. One evening in the winter, after his marriage, he sat 



438 THE YALES AND WALES 

drawing-, and finally he passed a slip of paper over to his wife saying, 
"There Kate, on this paper lies our fortune." It was a drawing- of the 
first lock that he invented. 

He was an artist in mechanics, as well as in drawing and painting; 
that is, he took an artistic pleasure in the perfection of any mechanical 
process in which he might be engaged. He was never too busy to stop 
by a workman's bench and show him a better way to accomplish some 
delicate mechanical task. 

His artistic tendencies were also in evidence in his diversions for 
pleasure; he was a devoted angler, and his ardor in this sport, seemed 
to be partly fed by the joy he experienced in making a rod or tying a 
fly, and it has been said by other votaries of the sport, that to see him 
cast a flj% gave the same pleasure that comes to one in hearing a 
violin solo by a master, so fine was his sense of balance, of distance and 
motion. 

He was born at Salisbury, N. Y., April 4, 1821, and after com- 
pleting his education, began his career as a portrait painter; but his 
mechanical inclinations induced him about 1849, to join his father in 
the lock business, at Newport, N. Y. Linus Yale Sr., was at that time 
operating a bank lock factor}-, in the stone building now known as the 
"Old Yale Lock Factory," the ruins of which are still standing. The 
earlier efforts of * -, ^\7 this field, were in connection with bank 

safes and locks, anli wc. ^ ^.o oTiginal ana successful, that he came to 
be recognized as the leading American expert and authority in such 
matters. As such, he was employed as consulting engineer, by many of 
the banks and bankers of the day, to design their more important safes 
and locks, and his inventions in this connection were numerous, and in- 
volved man}' diverse types, of most ingenious and complicated con- 
struction. The combination lock, as now used, was then unknown, and 
all of his earlier inventions related to locks operated by keys; but great 
security was obtained, by making the "bit" of the key changeable at 
will and also detachable from the handle, so when the latter was rotated 
in the lock, the "bit" was detached and carried away from the key- 
hole, to a remote part of the lock, and there brought into contact with 
the tumblers, to set them in position to permit the bolt to move; the con- 
tinued rotation of the handle, then operating the bolt and returning the 
"bit" to the ke3'-hole for removal.

THE YAI.es of AMERICA 439 

The famous "lock controversj'" which arose in England during the 
"World's Fair" of 1851, when the American, Mr. Hobbs, succeeded in 
picking the best English bank locks, had its aftermath in similar con- 
tests, between American bank lock makers. Being drawn into this con- 
troversy, Mr Yale, first discovered how to pick the celebrated Day & 
Newell, "Parautoptic Bank Lock," known in England as the "Hobbs" 
lock, and it has been said he picked it with a pine stick; but soon after- 
wards he found out how to pick his own best bank lock, known as the 
"Double Treasury," and ended, by demonstrating that any lock having 
a key hole, could be successfully attacked, by one having the necessary 
skill and implements. 

Ultimately he turned his attention to the combination or "dial" lock, 
which in crude form had been known for centuries, and brought it to 
such perfection that, before his death it had displaced nearly all other 
bank locks; and in the many years which have since elapsed, the 
"dial" lock has been in universal use in America, for safes and vaults; 
and although produced in many forms and by numerous makers, it re- 
tains to-day, the essential characteristics given it by Linus Yale Jr. 

Notwithstanding the great importance and ingenuity of the bank 
lock inventions, as before stated, the invention of the lock with the small 
"flat key," in 1860-1864, was the epoch making event of his life. This 
invention ultimately completely revolutionized the art of lock making in 
America, and contributed greatly to place this country in the superior 
position which it occupies, far in advance of all other countries, in lock 
making. It consisted of the following essential details of construction 
and methods. 

1 In placing the key mechanism in a separate "cylinder," in- 
serted in the face of the door, and connected with the bolt case, behind. 

2. In combining the ancient Egyptian "pin tumblers," with a 
revolving "plug" containing the ke3'^-way. 

3. In combining, with the revolving "plug," 2. flat key, of conven- 
ient form and of uniform size for all sizes and kinds of locks, in place of 
the round key previously in universal use. 

4. In the adoption of a standard of design and workmanship for 
key locks for general use, equal to that previously employed only in 
bank locks. 



440 THE YALES AND WALES 

5. In adopting- high-class machine tools, to obtain the higher stand- 
ard of workmanship thus established. 

6. In packing- each lock in a seperate paper box, complete with all 
necessary trimming's and screws, thus initiating a practice now almost 
universal. 

Prior to these inventions and improvements, the round key locks were 
in universal use and were of crude and bulky form, affording only in- 
different security, and of inferior workmanship. 

Although, as has been stated, Linus Yale Jr., began his career in 
the art of lockmaking, with his father, he some years later embarked in 
the business independently, and about the year 1855, moved to Phila- 
delphia, where he was very successful; but about 1861 or 1862, he again 
moved, to Shelburne Falls, Mass., where the locks were manufactured 
by the firm of Yale & Greenleaf . The chief products at the latter place, 
were bank locks, however the flat keyed cylinder lock, with pin tum- 
blers, was manufactured in a small way. 

In the summer of 1868, Mr. Yale and Mr. Henry R. Towne, then of 
Philadelphia, a thoroughly trained mechanical engineer, who was 
seeking a permanent business connection, were introduced to each other 
by a mutual friend, and after some months of negotiation, a partnership 
was formed between them, bj'^ which Mr. Yale agreed to contribute his 
existing business, patents and inventive skill, and Mr. Towne agreed 
to provide additional capital and to organize and manage the manufact- 
uring department. It can be stated, that, although Mr. Yale's business 
was chiefly making bank locks, Mr. Towne was attracted by a convic- 
tion, which he then formed, that the newly invented "cylinder," was 
the foundation for a large business, if properly exploited. 

This partnership was organized in October 1868, in corporate form, 
under the name, "The Yale Lock Manufacturing Company," and was 
located at Stamford, Conn., thirty-four miles from the City of New 
York; this point being carefully selected, as combining the advantages 
of the skilled labor of New England, with close proximity to the metrop- 
olis of the country. A suitable site having been selected and purchased, 
Mr. Towne went to Stamford, to design and erect the modest factory 
building which was proposed. Mr. Yale continuing to conduct the 
business at Shelburne Falls, pending its removal to the new location. 

On December 25, 1868, the newly organized business met with a 



THE YALES OF AMERICA 441 

great misfortune, in the sudden death of Mr. Yale, of heart disease, on 
that date, in the City of New York, where he had been unexpectedly 
detained, in consultation over plans for the vaults of the Equitable 
Building-, then under construction. He was aged 47 years, 8 months and 
21 days, at the time of his death. 

In 1869, Mr. Towne succeeded to the presidency of the company, 
and in later years (1883), owing- to the enlarged and deversified line of 
products, the name was changed to, The Yale & Tovine Manufacturing 
Company. The business was removed to the new factory at Stamford 
and started up, in March, 1869, with about thirtj'^ employees; a sales- 
room being simultaneously established, at No. 1 Barclay St., New York 
City. At that time bank locks were the chief products, however the new 
pin-tumbler, cylinder lock, now universally known as the "Yale Lock," 
was also made in seven varieties. Several new varieties were added in 
the next few years and the system of "Yale Locks" for U. S. postofiice 
lock boxes, was rapidly developed, from a lock box which Mr. Yale had 
designed for the postoffice in Boston, Mass., just previous to his death. 
The rapid adoption of the Yale Lock Box, in postoffices in all parts of 
the country, helped greatly to call public attention to the merits of the 
"Yale Lock," with its diminutive key. The designing and building of 
complete postoffice equipment soon became an established department of 
the business, the line of bank locks was remodeled and enlarged and 
the growth of the business was such that, one hundred and fifty people 
were employed in 1872. In 1873 bronze hardware was added to the bus- 
iness and in this field the company finally became the recognized leader. 
In 1875, the Weston Differential Pulley Block device, was added to the 
line, and a little later "cranes" of all kinds and sizes. These latter 
lines were developed into extensive proportions, but in 1894, were dis- 
posed of, to the Brown Hoisting Machinery Company, of Cleveland, Ohio; 
the chain block business being retained at Stamford. In 1882, the A. 
H. Emery testing machines and heavy scales, were taken up, but this 
business was also disposed of in 1887, to Wm. Sellers & Co., of Phila- 
delphia, Penn. Returning to the narrative of the lock industry, it is in 
order to state that, in response to a demand for a bank lock, unsusepti- 
ble to manipulation, the Yale Time Lock was invented, and has since 
come into almost universal use in the leading banks. In 1878 the busi- 
ness of two smaller competitors, was acquired. The United States Lock 



442 THE YALES AND WALES 

Co., and The American Lock Co., and the production of padlocks was 
taken up. The number of employees had been increased by this time, 
to about three hundred. 

Branch ofiices had been established in Philadelphia and Boston, 
and in 1880, one was opened in Chicago. Additions to the Stamford 
plant were made almost annually, those of 1881 and 1883 being quite 
important. About 1882, the company began to cater extensively to the 
public demand for artistic, high grade, ornamental hardware, and the 
artistic treatment of iron for this work, was taken up successful^'. In 
1891 the number of employees had increased to 900, and a complete line 
of cabinet and trunk locks was added to the products. The year 1894 
brought the addition of lines of the cheaper and medium grades of 
builders hardware and locks, which came to be among the most im- 
portant products. Door checks were added to the lines of products in 
1895. During the years 1900 and 1901, extensive improvements and 
additions were begun and made for the Stamford Works, and the 
manufacturing heretofore carried on at Branford, was moved to Stam- 
ford. These improvements and consolidations, make the Stamford 
Works, the largest and best equipped of the kind in the world, with a 
capacity for the employment of over 3000 persons, and occupying a tract 
of over 15 acres of land, with direct rail and salt water connections. 

Much credit is due Mr. Henry R. Towne and his associates, for the 
world wide popularity of the name "Yale" as associated with locks, as 
it was through their splendid business judgement and indomitable 
energy, that the great growth of the business was made possible, after 
the decease of the inventor.

RESIbENCE OK J HoBaK T YaI-IC, AilCKlOKN, CONN. 



This ancient house is of mucli interest, having'- been erected in the 
year 1761 by Noah Ya e, and occupied by his descendants in ihe direct 
line ever since, Mr. J. Hobart Yale's children representing the sixth 
g-eneration. It is a comfortable dwelling, and a grand eximple of the 
old time homes. The present owner has recently equipped it with 
modern improvements. The t'reat stone chimney was taken down and 
replaced with a brick o.ie, to secure additional space; hot and cold 
water is supplied from a tank in the attic and a heater in the cellar. 
In fact, numerous modern conveniences are now at hand in this old co- 
lonial dwelling.

Gregory Yale, of San Francisco, Cali., was married July 10, 1846, 
to Frances Ellen Willey, who was born November 10, 1830, at Kittery,

Hart, laid out the town of Jacksonville, Florida, in 1828. 

Mr. Gregory Yale was born in Richmond, Virginia, October 14, 
1816; was educated at the University of Virginia and was admitted to 
the bar in December, 1840; after which he removed to Jacksonville, 
Fla., where he was prominent in the practice of law. On September 
14, 1849, he sailed for San Francisco, Cali., arriving there December 28, 
where he was soon joined by his family. He was prominent in the 
legal profession in that city for many years and also took an active and 
prominent part in public affairs. He was the author of several 
important legal books and was a frequent contributor to current publi- 
cations of his day. In 1857 he had accumulated a fottune of some 
$300,000, which he lost later in mining and ditch investments. He was 
noted for his great generosity and hospitality. He was a descendant 
of the Yales of ISew England, but I have been unable to trace his 
ancestry definitely.

The author is unable in some cases to definitely determine to which 
individual in the genealogy the war record applies, and in such in- 
stances the connection between the military record and the individual 
in the genealog-ical list is of necessity left for the descendants to de- 
termine, which they can doubtless do in some instances, with the aid of 
family traditions and records, and they are assured by the author that 
these war records of Connecticut men are officially correct. 

In this connection the author desires to state that the record of the 
Yales in the Revolutionary and other early American Wars, is not con- 
fined to the Connecticut records. There were other Yales who enlisted 
from other colonies, and so far as such records have been obtained they 
are entered under the names of the individuals in the genealogy.
