Part of Wynnstay Estate Records
Notification by Alan, bishop of Bangor, addressed to all sons of Holy Mother Church in the bishopric of Bangor, that Kadwaladr, son of Howel, for the souls of himself and his parents, has given to the brothers of the church of the Cistercian order, St Mary of Estradmarhel, in perpetual and quiet alms, free from all exaction and custom, all the land from the stream called Bacho to the stream called Dengum; and also has sold for fifteen marks the feeding ground from the stream Dengum to Cumluith, to the same brothers for their own use. -- The witnesses of this gift and sale are: Laurence, Hospitaller, Sulien, archdeacon, Ioreuerth, dean, son of Howel, Ieuwaf, son of Ioreuerth, Philipp, prior of Lanwinnauch, Master Helias, Master Roger; of laymen: Meiler, son of Nennian, Griffud, son of Kadugaun, Karadauch the Little, Griffud Hiruein, Gurgeneu Preco, Henir Vates -- Because the present age is prone to evil and ingenuity tempts it calumniously to infringe what it endeavours to extort to itself, he confirms this gift and sale with his seal. Whomsoever shall presume to annul or disturb this gift and sale and the confirmation of this charter, by God’s authority and his own, he shall be overwhelmed by the sentence of anathema and thrown out of the bounds of Mother Church as long as he remains in his presumption.
