    for Treburvah in the Parish of Llangunllo (home of Thomas Evans) is Tre-boeth a possibility?

    Thanks Muggy.

    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 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.
