[Corwen document]  Property Deed concerning the Related Smith and Jones families
This 1858 conveyance of an acre plot of land called Cae tan y bryn otherwise known as Cae-yn-y-bryn is a dream for both the family and local historian.  It refers back to much property left in the will of Erasmus Jones (d 1850) which eventually devolved to his brother Thomas (d 1853, leaving 10 children) and his sister Elizabeth Smith (who had 6 children).  For the family historian all 16 children are named, and for the local historian the deed contains a schedule of earlier transactions going back to 1622 showing parties involved.   In the schedule is mention of a court case between the two related families which the family historian will undoubtedly wish to follow up.  Manuscript on 4 large parchment sheets, bearing signatures of 7 Smiths.  (ref 464/36)  18.00
