Pedigree of John Edwards of Stansty

  • NLW MS 24200G.
  • File
  • 1654-[?1670s]

Pedigree and achievement, 1654, of John Edwards (1619-1673) of Stanste [Stansty], Denbighshire, compiled and executed by Randle Holme II, containing thirty-nine other fully painted coats of arms, mostly impaled, tracing Edwards's descent in the male line from Coel Godebog and Cadwalader ap Cadwallon, through their mutual descendant Rhodri Mawr, alongside his paternal grandmother's descent from Morion ap Morgenew, Lord of Dyffryn Clwyd.
The names of individuals, together with additional biographical and genealogical information, are enclosed in roundels, with those of the earliest royal and noble figures being surmounted by crowns, coronets or caps of maintenance as appropriate. The pedigree is mostly arranged as two parallel lines of descent, except the final three generations where other relatives such as siblings and John Edwards's son and stepchildren are recorded, without heraldry. The title, beginning 'The Genealogie or Pedegree of John Edwards of Stanste', is given in a scroll cartouche at the head of the roll; the achievement of John Edwards, with eleven quarterings, is placed at the foot. There are a few additions in a different hand, [?1670s], including notice of the marriage of John Edwards the younger (aged 2 in 1654) to Mary, daughter of the Rev. Robert Lloyd of Llanychan; two sections of text appear to have been altered by scraping away the original ink. The pedigree is an example of Style 3 in Michael Powell Siddons, Welsh Pedigree Rolls (Aberystwyth, 1996), pp. 11-12.

Benjamin Flower correspondence

A collection of one hundred and twenty-one letters, and thirteen further fragments, 1794-1808 (mainly 1799-1800), being mostly the correspondence of Benjamin Flower (1775-1829), political writer and Unitarian (DNB, vol. 19, p. 339) with Eliza Gould, whom he married in January 1800.
The collection is fullest for the period August to October 1799 (the period of Flower's imprisonment at Newgate for an alleged libel against Bishop Watson of Llandaff, whose political conduct he had censured in the Cambridge Intelligencer) when almost daily exchanges took place between himself and Miss Gould. For the years following their marriage in 1800 the correspondence is less complete and consists mainly of domestic trivia and concern for one another's health and welfare. In two lengthy letters, 1799, Flower provides a detailed account of his 'past life, ... present situation and ... future prospects' (nos 17, 19). There are regular references to the difficulties faced by Flower in writing 'paragraphs' for the Cambridge Intelligencer, and, after 1805, to the problems of running a printing business at Harlow. Accounts of contemporary political and literary life are interspersed with personal details, and there is some discussion of the war against France. The later letters also contain many references to their two daughters Eliza (born 1803) and Sarah (born 1805).

Flower, Benjamin, 1755-1829
