Case: Penmynydd Almshouse

Scope and Content

CASE respecting the Penmynydd almshouse with Mr. Jones's opinion thereon. Mr Jones's opinion was requested by the trustees as to whether the almshouse had any claim upon the rectory of Eglwys Rhos or only to the £63 p. a. regardless of an increase in the value of the rectory. Mr. Jones summarises the will of Lewis Rogers and the subsequent arrangements made by Lewis Owen for the maintenance of the almshouse and then studies the Chancery decisions made in 1632. It was then decided that Henry Jones should enjoy the rectory at Eglwys Rhos upon payment of £63 p. a. to the trustees of the almshouse and upon the security of Bodsilin. Mr. Jones does not think that the almshouse can make any further claim upon the profits of the rectory. There is also a note at the foot of the document stating that the original intention of Lewis Rogers had not been to admit women to the charity.
