Letter from Francis Godwin, Bishop of Llandaff,

  • NLW MS 12729D.
  • File
  • 1608 /

An autograph letter, 3 September [16]08, from Fr[ancis Godwin, bishop of] Llandaff, from Mathern, to [Richard Bancroft], archbishop of Cant[erbury], on behalf of the clergy of Glamorganshire. The writer informs the archbishop that the clergy of the said shire, having been summoned 'to shewe their armour before the Lieutennantes of the cou[ntie] . . ., and their men to be mustred', were very perplexed, not 'knowing how to satisfy this comaund, for that they neuer were yett rated at any armour, but only once, viz., some 13 yeares since'. If they were rated as highly on the present as on the previous occasion, owing to their poverty, they would not be able to meet the demands made upon them without suffering great hardship. They begged, therefore, to be allowed to petition the Privy Council for a reduction in the demands to be made on this occasion

Ann of Swansea manuscript

  • NLW MS 23958C.
  • File
  • [?1818]

Manuscript notebook, [?1818], containing copies of prose and poetry by Ann of Swansea (Ann Julia Hatton) connected with her novel Chronicles of an Illustrious House (London, 1816) which caused controversy for satirising Swansea polite society as the fictional 'Gooselake'.
Included are extracts from the novel, specifically sections relating to Gooselake, beginning at vol. 2, p. 74 (ff. 1-18 verso), dated 5 July 1818 (f. 18 verso); two poems responding to the furore surrounding the novel, the first addressed 'To the Great Dons of Swansea' (ff. 19-20), the second beginning 'Arms, Arms I sing! and many battles dire' (ff. 20 verso-26); 'Elegy on the Death of Mr Bamboo', dated January 1817 (ff. 26 verso-28 verso), and a single verse beginning 'Now lost in dust is Cambria's boast', dated 1816 (f. 29). A leaf identifying some characters from the novel with their real-life counterparts has been tipped in on f. i; this suggests that the unknown compiler of the volume had a close connection with Swansea.
