I knew I had read something on Bold/Bould, just couldn't put my hands on it. Today
while reading through my books for another reference I found
The History Of St Dogmaels by Rev J H Vincent complied and edited by Glen Johnson
Chapter VIII : Old Manor Houses
... . David Parry Snr. purchased the abbey of St Dogmaels of John Bradshaw in 1640 .The
names of the Parrys can be traced in the Parish Documents to 1742
There are two other families of note whose pedigrees are inserted in Lewis Dwnn, as being
of Llandudoch of worthy renown.
(1) The children of David ap Rhys Vychan, Lord of Towyn
(2) Reys Bowld who married Ellen, daughter of William Bowld Esq. and grandgaughter of
Dermont Gruff of Plas Newydd
Hope it helps

Is there anyone out there who have connections to the Bold or Bould family.
Originally from Anglsey, they appear in St. Dogmaels parish in 1831. Probably at Hendre,
but this is to some extent speculative.
According to my interpretation they or the next generation with the Youngs, Warrens and
Pictons in North Pembs. There also appears to be a marriage with the Phillips family of
Pentre Ifan, and possibly Bull? of Drefach, Nevern.
There is in my opinion, giving the scarcity of the name, with Hugh Bold of Brecon. His
brother apparently according to his Will, was an Innkeeper in Carmarthen.
Carmarthen is Halfway House between North Pembrokeshire and Brecon, therefore this
connection is not as far fetched, as it might first appear.
Any information speculative or otherwise, would be gratefully received.
