Letter: Rev. Griffith, vicar of Penmynydd, to Charity Commissioners

Scope and Content

LETTER: Rev. Griffith, vicar of Penmynydd, to Charity Commissioners, informing them that when he became vicar of Penmynydd following the death of Rev. Davies Owen, he took over the accounts and management of the almshouse as Rev. Owen had acted as clerk to the trustees. He was unable to find any of the old papers, minute books, vouchers, bylaws and thought they were probably burnt, together with other papers belonging to the Rev. Owen. However he has drawn up the accounts for 1907-08 but points out that these do not include a sum of 3166. 4s. 7d. which is in the Nat. Provincial Bank in Menai Bridge on deposit account to the Penmynydd almshouses. He believes that this sum was put there in 1902 out of the accumulated funds of the charity to pay the costs in proceedings taken by the Charity Commission against the trustees but he knows nothing of this affair beyond the fact that £48 4s. was paid out to the trustees' solicitors at that time. As so much time has elapsed since these proceedings he asks if the Commission will make any further claims on the charity and if not, can the money now be used for improvements and repairs to the almshouses.
