Hal Whitmore

R. H. Yale fails to disclose the fact that Dr. David Yale, DCL, Chancellor of Chester, was an illegitimate son of John Wyn. This is somewhat suggested by the way of the footnote in Powys Fadog, which he discusses, is handled and very clearly stated in A. N. Palmer's History...of the Old Parish of Wrexham. Palmer states, "I consider it then as absolutely certain that Dr. David Yale was an illegitimate son of Dr. Thomas Yale's brother, John Wyn of Plas yn Iâl, for there is not the slightest evidence for suposing that his father married twice."

The Oxford Dictionary of National Biography states, "David Yale [David Lloyd] (d. 1626), civil lawyer, was probably the illegitimate son of Thomas Yale's elder brother, John Wyn, the heir of Plas-yn-Iâl."

Hal - Thanks for your very interesting comment. I am adding a link to it in the section on David Yale. Any addtional information to share. Bill

John Wynne

Can you, or anyone else, tell me how or where John Yale got the name John Wyn or Wynn?

I've traced my Wynn/Wynne family back to Esclusham Below, but can't get much further. The earliest I have is a William Wynne (c1793-1839), an engineer, who lived in nearby Aberderfyn and died in Esclusham Below.


John Wynne

John - Great question. I hope we both get an answer. Bill
