Don't usually spend this much time on a request, but gotta help a fellow
Aussie!! Have no information on your Llewellin Nicholas (other than the
later 1881 census entry), but apparently in the Francis Green collection at
The National library, according to written work of the late Major Francis
Jones an extract from Court Rolls 1615 - 1635 for the Manor of Tregadwgan,
Whitchurch Parish reads:
"At the court 12 May 1629, Thomas Nicholas, Margaret Williams, Ursula Gwyn
widow and John Robin were each fined 6s.8d. for not grinding their corn at
Solvach milne (Solva mill?)",
"At the court held on 12 November 1633, Lewis James gent, Thomas Nicholas,
Hugh Lawrence, John Harry, John Walter and Watkin Morse had left the road to
decay between Kingheriott and Midlemill".
There is no evidence to connect Thomas and your Llewellin....but hope you
find it interesting....and who knows?
Also a Henry Martin was a Gale Tenant at Trecadwgan..but he was dead by the
time the court was held on 10 May 1615.
Also found on one of Major Jones' charts...... "William Martin of City of
St. David's Will dated 16 April, 1558 married Agnes..........
Owen Martin was his son and heir. William apparently had a brother Harry
Martin who had sons Christopher (eldest), Martin Martin, William Martin and
a daughter Lettice Martin, but where these folks lived is not shown.
