Pontrobert (1785)

1795 or 96 Pontrobert, Montgomeryshire. ‘In the spring of the year 1795 [1796] the Association was held at Llanfair Caereinion, and the ministry in this meeting was a great blessing to many of the people in the surroundings of Pontrobert; and as a result, there was preaching at Pontrobert in a house there, or in the open air. The Lord blessed the ministry in a remarkable way, and there was a great and powerful revival, which continued for several years. At this time the home of the cause moved from Penllys to Pontrobert.’ [MC ii. 416] ‘The cause moved from Pen-llys to Pont Robert, which happened gradually in the years 1795 and 1796. In the spring of the year 1795 a powerful revival began at Pont Robert.’ (John Hughes, Pontrobert, in Y Traethodydd, ii. (1846), 231 footnote, also reprinted in O.M. Edwards (ed), Gwaith Ann Griffiths[??], p.35 footnote) This information was kindly provided by Geraint Jones
