A report on the charities of [Bedd Gelert] was made in 1834, when it was pointed out that the Parliamentary returns of 1786 mentioned four charities.... The fourth was the Charities of Mrs. Jones and Maurice Anwyl. Mrs. Jones left £50 for ten poor widows, and Maurice Anwyl augmented the sum by £10, and directed that the sum be raised and paid out of his real estate.
