When on the flat near the river he met three other persons, and was seen to go over the first bridge safely. The second bridge is very narrow, supported only by two iron rods, and is nearly falling.

In 1851 he is recorded as a solicitors clerk living at ‘Ty Mawr', Tanyfonwent, in Llanbadarn with his wife and seven of his eight children. In the 1841 Census the children are recorded by their initial Christian names which was the standard nomeclature of the local people; only the gentry used a number of Christian names. In the 1851 Census the children all possess two Christian names including the youngest daughter, Sydney Arabella. The unusual name, Arabella, may be connected with the Hughes family of Lluest Gwilym, a family of solicitors; next to their family vault is buried Arabella MacGillycuddy (see F2) and presumably Edward Will­iams was aware of the name from his connection with the Hughes family.

Hugh and Mary Richards died within a week of each other and both outlived their children and grandchildren as this extract from the Cambrian News makes clear:

About a fortnight ago Mr Hugh Richards, who recently lived at Trefechan died and was buried, and in little over a week afterward his wife died and was buried on the same day of the week as was her husband - on Tuesday. Mr Richards, who was the brother of the present occupier of the Parson's Mill at Llanbadarn, occupied Felinymor, a mill on the banks of the Ystwyth, which has gone into ruin. He recently lived with his wife in Trefechan. They had no fewer than nine children and one grandchild. All of them had the appearance of being healthy and strong but today not one of them survives. The grandson died young, one of the sons died across the seas, and all the others died when they reached ages ranging from twenty to thirty.

Hugh and Mary Richards's children were Mary; John, who died in Rio de Janiero in 1873, was married and his child, Hugh John Richards, is the grandchild referred to above; David; Morgan; Morgan, named after his brother who died before his birth; Elizabeth, who died when she fell into the mill dam at Morfa Mill; Anne; Hugh and Evan Herbert.

The Black Lion at Llanbadarn Fawr was built towards the end of the Seventeenth Century when, in common with the rest of the country, coaching inns were established to provide facilities for travellers. The license was taken over soon after it was completed and stayed in the Killin family until the Twentieth Cen­tury; for most of that time the Black Lion was also used as a court house by the Llanbadarn bench and was popular as a stopping place for the drovers who regularly passed through the village. The Black Lion was then a long, one- storey, whitewashed building topped with an ancient thatch; one end adjoined the churchyard wall and at the other stood a small flight of steps to aid travellers mount their horses. It was not until the 1880's that the old building was pulled down and the present structure erected following complaints from the Sanitary Board and the magistrates who, it was recorded, were pleased to see that a new room was being built to replace the old one “a disgrace to us and the county.”

The correspondent of a Bristol newspaper, visiting Aberystwyth to report the 1865 Eisteddfod, gives this account of the Black Lion and its landlord:

I set out to a village about a mile outside the town having the somewhat unpronouncable name of Llanbadarn Fawr - a village possessing an ecclesiastical structure of considerable beauty and dimensions, and a village where evidently there cannot be a very effective temperance organisation, if we consider that about one - fourth of the whole of the inhabitated dwellings are dedicated to the worship of Bacchus. In an ancient hostelry adjoining the old churchyard, kept by the King and father of Llanbadarn Fawr, Mr Evan Killin, and in a capacious room in the said hostelry, occasionally transformed into the use of a bedroom, but once a month occupied by Her Majesty's Justices of the Peace for the upper division of the county of Cardigan for the disposal of the lawless rustics, I fixed my headquarters during my stay at Aberystwyth.

Evan Killin was the licencee for most of the Nineteenth Century and ran the inn with the help of his wife Jane, their three children, Anne, John and Mary, and three servants. As was to be expected Evan Killin was greatly respected in the village not only as a landlord, nor as a Churchwarden, nor as a sizeable tenant farmer but also as the 'King of Llanbadarn', a title he appeared to have assumed in relation to the Llanbadarn Court Leet which then met at the Black Lion. The Aberystwyth Observer reported in May 1867 that “a court leet was held on Tuesday at the hospitable mansion of Mr Evan Killin, the 'King of Llanbadarn'. Capt. Phelp, representing Col. Powell, the lord of the manor, presided at the dinner, and was supported by Mr J .M. Davies and other gentlemen. Mr Jones was nominated to the mayoralty of this ancient city for the ensuing year; and we believe that it is the intention of the loyal burghers to chair their newly appointed chief magistrate, in his civic robes, through the extent of his dominions."

Obviously the intention was made reality for that week notices were pinned to walls in Llanbadarn announcing:

TAKE NOTICE

This is to request you, the citizens of Llanbadarn

Fawr to meet at the Black Lion Hotell,Llanbadarn

Fawr on Tuesday next at 7 o'clock P.M. to join

in the Grand Procession of our present Lord Mare,

Daniel Jones, (Smith), who is to be chaired through

the principal streets of the city, accompanied by the

King, Ex-Mare, aldermen, and councillors, and the

Penparke brass band playing in front, Starting

from the royall Hotel at 7.30 P.M.

By Order.

In addition to being King of Llanbadarn, Evan Killin also wrote reports for the local papers on the fairs held in the village and acted as village spokesman. In 1843 he is reported as giving evidence, in Welsh, to the inquiry into the Rebecca Riots by The Welshman. Evan was complaining “that if a bushel of potatoes were put at the top of a load of manure for a poor man, the poor man must pay for the potatoes though the manure went free. This was felt as a great grievance amongst the poor, and made them very discontented."

In old age Evan Killin walked with the aid of two sticks and handed the Black Lion to his surviving daughter Anne, and his son-in-law Thomas Jenkins. They had seven children of whom the youngest, Richard Killin Jenkins, is recorded above; their youngest daughter, Mary Ann, married Hugh Hughes, the local solicitor, and is buried in the Glynpadarn family vault (F13). Thomas Jenkins came from a well known Cardiganshire family and served on the Aberystwyth Board of Guardians, and the Llanbadarn School Board of which he was vice-chairman.

Richard Killin Jenkins, known as 'Dick', was an auctioneer who, in his youth, was "a man of excellent physique and sound health, being in his day one of the best local athletes.” Later in life he was a promoter of local poultry and dog shows and, as a Freemason, organised the annual St David's Day dinner which were then held in the Talbot Hotel.

Lewis and Mary Hughes were tenant of the farm at Lluest Gwilym which they increased in size from 56 acres in 1851 to 67 acres in 1871; before taking over the tenancy of Lluest Gwilym. In 1839 Lewis Hughes had farmed at Penybont. He had six children of whom two, William and Sarah, are recorded above. On William's headstone is an inscription, now hard to read in Welsh, and this has been translated to read “The urn delineated at the top of this stone was turned up in ploughing over the remains of a tumulus in a field called Caerodyn, on the farm of Pyllan Isa, in the adjoining parish of Llanfihangel Glyndroed, alias Creuddyn, in the month of November 1840. It contained a great quantity of human bones, and had the mouth downwards."

Sarah married John Hughes and they took over the farm when Lewis Hughes died and when Sarah died in 1880 the farm passed to John Hughes. In 1882 John Hughes found himself in a breach of promise case involving a widowed lady, Rhoda Elizabeth Roberts, the daughter of Superintendent Lloyd of the Cardiganshire Constabulary. The lady had lost her husband in 1877 and was left to raise a daughter when in November 1880 John Hughes began to pay attention and offered to marry her in August 1881 but postponed the marriage until December by which time the lady was pregnant and Hughes decided to call the whole thing off. He was eventually ordered to pay damages of £150 to the lady after his estate was valued at £449. John Hughes was a cousin of Hugh Hughes of Glynpadarn.
