DEED OF FOEFFMENT of a farm and tenement called Lloynagan or Thythen Lloynagan, pa. Penmynydd, in the occupation of Owen Williams. The document recites the provisions of Lewis Rogers' will as regards the building of an almshouse at Penmynydd and explains that Lewis Owen had promised Rogers on his deathbed that he would see his wishes were carried out. To this purpose he had assigned the profits of the impropriated rectory at Eglwys Rose to the people named in 3 to be used for the maintenance of the inhabitants of the almshouse. At the same time he also conveyed a piece of land of about 2 acres in Penmynydd on which the almshouses were to be built. These cost £400. He then found that the residue of Rogers' personal estate assigned by his will for the maintenance of the 10 poor men in the almshouse was insufficient and so he decided to convey his property called Lloynagan to 3, the profits were to be enjoyed by Owen Williams and after his death Hugh Williams, but the property was subject to a yearly charge of £10 to be paid towards the relief of the inhabitants of the almshouse, over and above the profits of the impropriated rectory of Eglwys Rose. This land is further charged with a sum of £10 to be paid to the curate in addition to a sum of £5 p.a. provided he preach 12 sermons a year. The money was to be given to him on the production of a certificate signed by the churchwardens on the receipt by the collector to the Penmynydd charity of the profits of Eglwys Rose. If any dispute or ambiguity arose in connection with the administration of the charity appeal was to be made to the Justices of the Assize.
