Daniel’s letters: 1 October 1817 – survey of Penralltddu

mus.59.27.1.8rmus.59.27.1.8v

Sir

It is Necessary for me to let you know that the parish of Bridel Survayed that part of Penralltddu lieth in the said Parish to 11 acres and charged it to 10 of poor rate, from Easter 1817 to Easter 1818.

A Genteelman and a proprietor of Many Tenements within the said parish told, about the year 1777 that Bridel parish contains 3560 acres of land, in the following Ordor

John Symmons Esq’r _______ 800 acres

W’m Williams Esq’r _______ 660

James Bowen Esq’r ________ 600

Other Genteelmen __________ 1500         3560

Be please to see how often times 11 acres is in 3560 acres of land and put 10 on every 11 acres and then we shall see can they have the £80 they levied on the parish from Easter 1817 to Easter 1818 out.

Farther, 15s of Tythe on 11 acres of land or there about, what will be on 3560 acres at that rate

Penralltddu
