ROMANTIC ASSERTION ABOUT TRE- DEGAR ESTATE. The Parliamentary committee of the Newport Corporation again considered on Tuesday the question ..of the ownership of the King's Hill land at Newport— as to whether it belongs to the town or is part of the Tredegar estate. But a new turn was given to the affair by reason of a statement being made that a lady residing at Cwmbran claimed to be entitled to the Tredegax estate, on the ground that she was the rightful heirees,- inamnuch as she is the only sur- viving representative of Sir Charles Nicholson, to whom, so it was alleged, a grant of the property was made some centuries ago, which property includes the present Tredegar House and lands sur- rounding it. The members of the committee smiled considerably at the narration of such a. re- markable romance. The claimant is Mrs. A. Burgham, who resides in a small cottage at Cwmbran. She apparently believes in the bona-fidee of her claim, but in Monmouthshire it is not recognised that the claim can be sub- stantiated. »»♦«♦
