Ty-Mawr Ghost, Bryneglwys


In 'Welsh Folk-lore' (1887), Elias Owen recounts a conversation concerning a ghost he had with Mr. Richard Jones of Ty’n-y-wern who in describing this ghosts character said that it 'plagued the servants, pinched and tormented them, and they could not get rest day nor night' Owen asked “What was the cause of his acts, was it the Ghost of anyone who had been murdered?” 'To this question, Jones gave the following account of the Ghost’s arrival at Tymawr. A man called at this farm, and begged for something to eat, and as he was shabbily dressed, the girls laughed at him, and would not give him anything, and when going away, he said, speaking over his shoulder, “You will repent your conduct to me.” In a few nights afterwards the house was plagued, and the servants were pinched all night. This went on days and days, until the people were tired of their lives. They, however, went to Griffiths, Llanarmon, a minister, who was celebrated as a Layer of Ghosts, and he came, and succeeded in capturing the Ghost in the form of a spider, and shut him up in his tobacco box and carried him away, and the servants were never afterwards plagued.'
