The Gough Family Graves

Saint Cynog's Cemetery, Ystradgynlais


The Gough family had a connection to Saint Cynog's Church going back at least to the eighteenth century where relatives of the landowner served as Vicars of Ystradgynlais in the last two decades (1780 onwards). Text from the memorial high on the wall near the altar says (as best as it could be read from the ground):-


Also of the Revd Fleming Gough of Ynyscedwyn, brother of the above named () and Rector of the parish of Ystradgynlais for 35 years who died at Ynyscedwyn the 27th October 1839, aged 79

The "above named" is Richard Gough Aubrey, Esquire of Ynyscedwyn Manor who was nephew of Rev James Gough Aubrey. Richard Gogh Aubrey died January 26th 1803 [sic] aged 55 [?]
