The Charities of Carmarthen.




LLANSAINT METHODIST CHAPEL. The Rev. E. Davies referred to the sum of ^100 a year left to Llansaint Calvinistic Methodist Chapel. The Commissioners said that the amount was a charge on Glantannis farm, in the parish of Llangunnor, left by Mrs Beavan, of Carmarthen (not the Mrs Beavan who founded the charity school). There were, however, two farms called respectively Glantannis-fawr and Glantannis-fach." The former belonged to Earl Cawdor anterior to the date of the deed and the presumption was that the charge was on the latter, which was then owed by Mrs Beavan. ZS was for the church, and £5 for a Cardiff solicitor. The Rev. E. Davies said that they had not the money regularly. The Commissioner said that they must not be hard landlords. The ailstake was in appointing eminent preachers and prominent men as trustees, who, however, knew nothing of the deeds and the property relating to the church. If they had difficulty in collecting the money, they could put in a distress, and cause some excitement in that quiet little town. THE TABERNACLE BAPTIST CHURCH. Mr E. Price (secretary) appeared for the Tabernacle Church. By the will of Ann Lewis, of the lulllnn, who died in the year 1890, £ 50 was left for the general purposes of the church. £ 50 Consols was left ]3s annually to a deserving member of the church for keeping her grave and that of the family tidy. The remainder of the income was to be divided amongst, the poor of the church at Christmas time. The former amount had been paid into the building fund. The whole of the income of the Consols was used for keeping the railings, etc., of the graves in repair. The Commissioner said that the poor had a right of action in the County Court for the misappropriation of this money (laughter). The ornamenting of the grounds outside the chapel should have been paid for by the rich deacons. Mr E. Price But I am not rich. I am in the workhouse. The Commissioner Then you had a claim as one of the poor. Well, you should have raised your voice in the church against the misappropriation of this money. It has been considered gaod in law in a case like this to pay all the money to the poor. Mr E. Price said that the church also owned the ministers house, which was worth about £ 24 a year. The conveyance he would send on to the Commissioner. LAM MAS-STREET BEQUESTS. Mr T Davies mentioned a bequest of ^50 made by Mr E. B. Jones, chemist (fathel of Mr C. W\ Jones, Penllwyn Park), to Lammas- street chapel. There was also ^50 left by Miss Thomas, Clifton. CORPORATION RECORDS. Mr R. M, Thomas, town clerk, produced the old Corporation records of Carmarthen, dating to back as far as 15S3. These were inspected by the commissioner, and proved most interesting. The collection was bound together in the middle of last century.
