Name of creator
The Venerable E. G. (Evan Gilbert) Wright (1903-1994), Archdeacon of Bangor, Anglican minister and antiquarian, purchased a collection of documents from J. E. (John Edwards) Griffith (1843-1933), author of 'Pedigrees of Caernarfonshire and Anglesey Families' (1914), relating to the Lloyd family of Dduallt, Ffestiniog, Merionethshire, possibly as part of his research into Humphrey Humphreys, 1648-1712, Bishop of Bangor, whose daughter married into a Lloyd family and who held land in Ffestiniog. He also purchased some overseer's accounts and parochial records for the parish of Llandyfrydog, Anglesey. These seem to be unconnected to his research or to his incumbencies at Llangefni, Anglesey (as curate), Gaerwen, Anglesey (as rector, 1939-1945), St David's, Bangor, Caernarfonshire (as vicar, 1945-1962), or as Archdeacon for Bangor.
Purchased by the Venerable E. G. Wright from J. E. Griffith.
