"Miss Margaret Owen, Penllain Inn, Penypark, applied for an extension of time from 10 to 12 p.m. on Whit Monday, because an eisteddfod was to be held at the Baptist Chapel in the place, and that many persons would be putting up at her house on the day, and that the eisteddfod would not finish till nearly eleven p.m. An hour's extension was reluctantly granted." Cgn Obs 15 May 1897
