NOTES: Short account of the lasting or perpetual charities belonging to the parish of Penmynydd. This account summarises the provisions of the wills of Lewis Rogers, dated 1617, and Lewis Owen dated 1620.
In order to make good the defects in Roger's will, Owen in 1620 executed a deed by which he conveyed 2 acres of land at Penmynydd on which the almshouses were built and also the tithes of Eglwys Rhos to trustees who were to pay £63 p.a. to the almsmen, being 20s. more than the sum bequeathed by Rogers. In the same deed care was taken to perpetuate the succession of foefees, new men being chosen from the inhabitants of Penmynydd, Esceiviog, Pentraeth and Llanffinan. It was also decreed that Hugh Williams and hisheirs should be collectors of the rents of the rectory at Eglwys Rhos for which trouble he was to receive 40s. per year. If a dispute should arise the Justices of the Assizes were to be arbitrators and for their trouble thay were to have a pair of gloves worth 10s. per year. Finally there is a note that the deed dated 1634 which settles the estate of Bodsilin in pa. Aber and Llanvairvechan to make good all deficiencies, which specifies that £63 p.a. is to be paid to Hugh Williams or the foefees on the four usual Feast days.
