    Notes 
    • Translated posting from a notice board, written in Welsh, about Horeb Chapel:

      "The most notable, and surely most numerous, family which was raised in this area was the Benbow family. Their mother was a daughter of David Lewis, brother of the famous Lewis Evan. She also had an older sister in godliness of the name Nansi Lewis, a spinster, who lived with her sister. Several in the area would remember [her], a considerable number of years ago, as she would be exulting. Mrs Benbow had eight children - Jonathan, Edward, David, Richard (Waen y Magiau), Margaret, wife of Richard Williams, Hafod Sech, John, who died young, Mary, wife of Roger Evans, Church House, Tregynon, and Ellen, Pant y Gelynen - the last of the family living. They were all well known as religious people and some of them as workers, especially Jonathan and David. The greatest of them as a thinker was Edward. It was on his mind once to be a preacher but I do not know what hindered this."
