William Henry Tregoning was one of the many men from Cornwall who came to this area as miners and, more importantly, as the captain of mines. This area was known as the 'Welsh potosi' after the rich silver producing area of Bolivia. William Henry Tregoning came from the Cornish parish of Gwennap and so did many of the other Cornish men working the Welsh mines. He seems to have been twice married for in 1871 he was recorded living in Bow Street with his second wife, Tabitha, and his children, William, John Rees, William Jason and John. He also ran the 'Six Bells' a public house in Llanbadarn.

John Tisdale was a carrier who once lived in Thespian Street, though in the 1861 Census he was living at Windmill Court. He had married a widower, Mary, much older than himself and she persuaded him to join the Baptist and agree to a public baptism by immersion at a pit somewhere near where the railway station now stands but he thought better of the proceedings when he arrived and immediately pulled out of the baptism. The local wags quickly composed a song on the day's event of which the refrain ran:

Evan Simon lived in Rose Place, Llanbadarn Fawr in 1851 when he was a widower. He was described as a 'Master tailor employing two men' in the Census but it would seem that the men were his sons, Thomas and David, both journeymen tailors. He had three other children, John, Evan and Henry. His son, Thomas, is mentioned in ‘A History of Llanbadarn Fawr'.

Thomas Simon lived at Llangawsai in 1830 and, with his wife Elizab­eth had three children there; they were Thomas, Eleanor and Richard. About 1836 he moved to Aberystwyth and lived near Northgate Street and there Evan, James and John were born. It is very likely that Thomas Simon was the brother of Evan Simon (J37).

The Aberystwyth Times of June 1869 reported that David pierce Evans, the only son of the late Rev D. Evans, the Wesleyan Minister at Aberystwyth, had left Liverpool on the 11th of December 1868 on a voyage aboard the barque ‘Bryn Joor' of Newport, to Kurachee but had been taken sick and died three weeks later. He was the second officer of the vessel and, as the news did not reach the town until June 1869, we can presume that the vessel made its way to its destination.

Llanbadarn Church, in its present form, owes more to the Reverend John Pugh than to any other individual. John Pugh was born on the 20th of April 1833, the son of David Pugh of Rhiwarthenisaf. He attended both the Aberystwyth and Ystrad Meurig Grammar Schools before entering St. David's College, Lampeter, where he read Classics and Hebrew. He then entered the Church and was ordained by the Bishop of St. David's in 1857. A year before that he had been app­ointed curate at Llanbadarn Fawr, where the vicar was the Venerable Archdeacon John Hughes. At that time the parish of Llanbadarn Fawr was very extensive and included the town of Aberystwyth, as well as many of the outlying villages.

When Archdeacon Hughes died on the first of November 1860, it was decided to create a separate parish for the town of Aberystwyth. The living of Llanbadarn Fawr was offered to the Reverend John Gri­ffiths of Neath but he refused it on the grounds that he would not be allowed to hold both the livings of Llanbadarn Fawr and Aberyst­wyth. The living then passed to the Reverend E.O. Phillips, then Warden of the Welsh Educational Institution at Llandovery, who held it until 1861 when Aberystwyth became a separate parish and he took the living there. The parishioners of Llanbadarn Fawr had petitio­ned that John Pugh should be given the living of their parish and, to their delight, he was appointed vicar, a position he held for 32 years.

In October 1864 John Pugh married Louisa Jane, the daughter of the Rev. David Evans, Rector of Llanllwchaiarn at New Quay Church. His bride would hardly have found Llanbadarn Fawr a comfortable living for John Pugh reported that “The Church then was not much better than a heap of ruins, and there was no parsonage house attached".

John and Louisa Jane Pugh had seven children. The eldest, Anne Elizabeth, died at eight months of age in March 1866. David Richard and John Humphrey followed their father into the Church but their sisters, Louisa Jane and Florence Elizabeth May, both died young. The two youngest children, Herbert Austin and Beata Emmelyn, both survived their father.

From 1862 John Pugh led the parish in a programme of rebuilding and some £13,000 was spent on restoring the Church and building a new vicarage at Llanbadarn Fawr. They also built churches at Penr­hyncoch and Elerch, and schools at Penrhyncoch and Capel Seion as well as enlarging the existing schools at Comins Coch and Penyfron.

John Pugh was a faithful and loyal servant of his parishioners and took a part in public life by serving on the School Board, the Rural Sanitary Authority and the Board of Guardians. He also received recognition within the Church when he was appointed Rural Dean in 1866 and awarded the honorary position of Canon of St. David's in 1893.

John Pugh died on Sunday the 7th of May, 1893, after a short illness, at the age of 60. A friend wrote of him: "He was orthodox without being narrow and bigoted; a theologian devoted without being sanctimonious: a most sincere friend: a sympathetic comforter of the poor and afflicted: a tender husband and good parent: in brief a philanthropist in the fullest sense of the word".

John Jacob was the son of David Jacob, who was from Rhydyfelin, and his wife, Mary Anne, who was born at Goginan, and was their youngest son. After his fathers death he helped his mother to run a grocery business. He was apprenticed into the drapery trade and, as was the custom, lived in the household of his employer, Mr Will­iam Thomas Williams, at Sydenham House in Great Darkgate Street, Aberystwyth. It was Mrs Hannah Williams who first noticed his int­ellectual abilities and, with others, arranged for him to enter the newly opened University College in Aberystwyth. He was a very dil­igent and successful student who gained an award of £10 in his first term (Lent 1874) and took first prize in the Midsummer examination in logic and philology. In October 1874 he won an exhibition valid for three years and seems to have been active in Calvinistic circles in the town. At the University College John Jacob was one of just over a hundred students, most of whom joined in a procession at his funeral from the College to Llanbadarn.

Elizabeth Miles was the wife of John Miles a journeyman draper from Pembrokeshire, who, in 1851, was employed by Joel Evans, a woollen draper of Great Darkgate street, Aberystwyth. Her father, William, was a tallow chandler, who lived at Llanbadarn Fawr and rented some land on which to grow grain from Edward Daniel in the mid 1840's. In the Tithe map of 1846 he is recorded holding three acres of land at 'Cae Newydd' and 'Pant yr Onnen', the tithe on which amounted to thirteen shillings and six pence (67 pence). In 1841 the family of William and Elizabeth Richards consisted of four children, Ann, Mary, Elizabeth and David. Mrs Elizabeth Richards, the Aberystwyth Observer reported in 1867, 'was much respected and had been a member of the Calvanistic Methodists' connexion for upwards of 50 years'.

The Gogerthan Arms was at the junction of Bridge Street and Great Darkgate Street, Aberystwyth, and was built about 1727. It was run for a while by Alexander Gordon and then rapidly altered to take part in the stagecoach trade in the early nineteenth century, probably by John Davies. It was one of the leading coaching inns in the town with regular services to Shrewsbury and other towns. In 1810 a coach, the 'Duke of Wellington' pulled out of the Gogerddan Arms at 4 a.m. twice a week in the summer bound for Shrews­bury but the inn could not compete with the Belle Vue. It later became Lion Royal Hotel though it was once called the 'New Black Lion' and is best remembered as the Padarn Hall of the University College of Wales.

The landlord of the Gogerthan Arms in 1791 was John Davies because his burgess certificate is still extant. It reads:

Town, Liberty and Burgh of Aberystwyth, in the County of Cardigan

I certify that John Davies of Gogerthan Arms, Aberystwith, was at a Court Leet, or view of Frankpledge held and kept in and for the said Town, Liberty and Burgh, on the twenty­ second day of October, one Thousand, seven hundred and ninety six presented a Burgess of the said Town, Liberty and Burgh, and was also sworn.

Also to the memory of Elizabeth, the beloved wife of Capt Alexander Richardes, of Penglais, who died on Thursday the 1st October 1871, aged 55 years. Sacred to the memory of Roderick Eardley Richardes of Penglais, Esqre, who departed this life April 7th 1851, aged 65.

Also Charles Richardes, Esqre, third son of the above, died July 12th 1862, aged 31 years. Also Alexander George Richardes, died September 28th 1866, aged 9 years. George Alexander Charles, died May 4th 1945, aged 69. Also Roderick Clement Richardes of penglais, died July 18th 1925, aged 68 years.

The fortunes of the Richardes family stem from Roderick Richard, the son of Richard Rhydderch, who was High Sheriff of Cardiganshire in 1699 and probably lived at the corner of Bridge Street and Mill Street, Aberystwyth. He was succeeded by Charles Richards, who died in 1746 and Charles' son Roderick Richards, who was a clerk in the Navy Office at London. In 1754 this Roderick Richards married a London spinster, Mary Wilson, though he appears, and this was to develop into something of a family tradition, to have had two children by one Jenny (or Jane) Welland. About 1770, when he was High Sheriff of Cardiganshire, Roderick Richards began to build the mansion at Penglais to which he returned about 1785. His son, William Welland, took the name Richardes and the estate. When he died in 1797 the Penglais estate passed to his eldest son, Roderick Eardley Richardes, who was High Sheriff in 1813. Another son of William and Anna Arabelle Richardes was William Eardley Richardes (1795 - 1874) of Bryneithin, who was instrumental in the building of the monument on Pendinas.

Roderick Eardley Richardes, a Justice of the Peace and a former ensign in the 83rd Regiment of Foot, was married to Anne Corbetta Hannah Maria, a sister of Colonel Powell of Nanteos, and by her had at least six children. They were Alexander (see below), Maria, Roderick William (see below), Charles (who died in 1862), Cornel­ius and Avarina, who married a solicitor, Edward Hugh Davies.

Roderick William, the second son of Roderick Eardley Richardes, was born in February 1826. At the age of 19 he became a cadet in the 10th Bombay Native Infantry and stayed there for 23 years; he was mentioned in despatches in 1858. He rose to the rank of Capt­ain in the Bombay Native Infantry and was made a major in the Bombay Staff Corps in 1863. In 1866 he took command of the 16th Regiment Native Infantry and was described in the Bombay Gazette as "a kind hearted and considerate gentleman, who has a happy way of blending the 'sauviter in modo' with the 'fortiter in re'." Unfortunately, like many others, he fell ill in India and died in Carmarthen, aged 42, in 1868.

When Roderick Eardley Richardes died in 1851 the Penglais estate was inherited by his eldest son, Alexander Richardes, a Captain in the Royal Cardigan Militia, who was twice married. By his first wife, Elizabeth, he had eight children: Alexander Eardley (see below), Emily, Louisa Ann, Charles Eardley, William Athelstan Francis, Roderick Clement (see below), Williamina Alexandrina and Averina. By his second wife, Margaret, (see below), he had three children, George Alexander, Annie Corbetta (who married Edwin Joseph Ada in Kingston, Canada, in 1901), and Cornelius Campbell Richardes.

It seems that Captain Richardes was quite an unstable character as his grandson, Eardley J Richardes, pointed out to Henry Bonsall who recorded in his diary:

Eardley says that Alexander Richardes shot the tenant of Penglaise fach, Edwards, one Sunday morning but they could not prove it as he got back and put dust on the guns and when Sergeant Evans came to search he found dust on them. He was a very quick tempered man and if you put your head over the wall up went his gun like a shot. Roderick used to be always with him and took care of him and gave him whiskey.

Captain Richardes, who died in 1883, left the estate to his son Roderick Clement Richardes, though the rightful heir should have been his grandson, Eardley J Richardes. Eardley was the eldest son of Alexander Eadley Richardes and his wife, Maria; they had two other children, Ernest Clement, who died in 1874 aged 6 and George Herbert. In April 1870 Alexander Eardley Richardes, the eldest son of Captain Richardes, was thrown out of a trap in an accident and killed. Eardley though did not inherit the estate which passed to his fathers' brother, Roderick Clement Richardes, but he did marry his grandfather's second wife, Margaret, and by her had three children. Henry Bonsall, in his diary, wrote that "Eardley is a gentlemanly nice spoken man" and even employed him, at 18 shillings (ninety pence) a week in 1904 when Eardley was 42, and the father of nine children.

Roderick Clement Richardes inherited the family property and the family tendency for he spent years living with a woman in Aberyst­wyth while trying to divorce his wife. He did divorce her, on the grounds of her insanity and married his mistress by whom he had two daughters and a son. This was Roderick Alexander William Pryce Richardes who, after a year at Sandhurst, was gazetted as a Lieut­enant into the Third Battalion, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, in December 1917. He served in Ireland for six months and was then sent with the 11th Battalion, Royal Welsh Fusiliers, to Salonika, where he was wounded in action on the 18th of September 1918. He was last seen on a stretcher, seriously wounded but cheerful, as a prisoner of the Bulgarians and officially presumed dead in March 1919.

When Roderick Clement Richardes died in July 1925 the Penglais estate passed to his brother William Athelstan Francis Richardes of Leamington who, according to Henry Bonsall, "has had a child by some other woman to whom he is not married". Penglais mansion was bought by D. Alban Davies and presented to the University College of Wales to become the residence of the Principal.

The last surviving son of Captain Alexander Richardes was George Alexander Charles Richardes who died in May 1945, aged 69 years. He spent most of his life in Birmingham but lived at ‘Elms', Elysian Grove, Aberystwyth,shortly before his death. He was a keen bellringer and a devoted member of Llanbadarn Church where he was, briefly, a churchwarden.
