for Treburvah in the Parish of Llangunllo (home of Thomas Evans) is Tre-boeth a possibility?
On Thursday night I saw my fried who works up there, he did mention a couple of names that seemed possible. I didn't have a pen and paper on me to make a note of what he said. The next time we are all out together over Christmas I will take a print out of the will you have transcribed. He said he will take a look and see if he recognises the places.
I want to order a copy of a will on-line here
Now, I have the following info
Date of probate 4th September 1872
Date of death 6th June 1872
First name(s) THOMAS
Registry (it says PRINCIPAL REGISTRY but that is not in the list of places in the drop-down menu)
FolioNumber (what is this ?)
Principal Registry is I believe the same as London

I was close
The Thomas-Moore's are not actually related to the Moore's of Old Hall Llanfihangel Rhydithon. Thomas Moore of the Old Hall bequeathed in his will (1872) that his FRIEND William Williams Thomas of the Whitehouse, Builth, should receive 7s per week for the term of his life plus all the land and buildings of his estate, discounting those already bequeathed (quite a sum as Thomas Morre's estate was worth around £60,000).
This was on a couple of provisos.... That the said William Williams Thomas should take the name Moore and add it to his surname, thus becoming William Williams Thomas-Moore and that he should reside in the Old Hall for at least 9 months of every year.
Thomas Moore said that within 12 months he would apply to the Crown for a licence for a change of name for William Williams Thomas.
Not a bad 'friend' to have
Separate names with a comma.
