Captain Jones of Llys Dulas
by: Eryl

Good Morning Molly,
I would be very interested in seeing the portrait you have of Captain Jones. That would be Captain Henry Jones. My family's roots go far back in the area. Any chance of a copy please?
Many thanks

Captain Jones
by: Eryl

Good morning Molly,
Any chance of a copy of the portrait of Captain Jones? He would have been Henry Jones and died in the 1840's. I am researching into the history of the house and estate.
Thanks

Captain Jones agent to Lady Neave
by: Molly

I have an old oil painting that has a handwritten provenance stating "Captain Jones of Llys Dulas Anglesea" also "Fought in the Battle of Waterloo" and "Later agent to Lady Neave"

Is this family still in the area?

Worked for the Neave family
by: Tecwyn

My mother Ellen Mary Williams (as she was then) worked at Llys Dulas for the Neaves.She was a cook. It must have been around 1930 to 1935. She used to talk about it. She was from the Aberffraw area. She had ony a half day off each week. Only had bicycle for transport. Used to attend Llanwenllwyfo church.

Plas Uchaf and the mansion
by: Anonymous

A few years ago I lived ion the property uchaf, was a wonderful time f me and my family, we once went through the estate and all that was left of the original manor was the tiled floor.

most of the properties on the estate have been refurbished and are let as holiday lets, sad really, but the area still retains its charm...

Lovely walks and a quiet and peaceful location, I still frequent the area in search of wild fruits at the end of the summer.

I often drive past Plas Uchaf and wonder if any of the holiday makers have experienced the ghosts there..it was quite scary at times until you got used to them..

Llys Dulas - the end
by: Anonymous

Llys Dulas mansion fell into disrepair after the second world war. It was demolished in around 1974-75 after being used to rear and house hens for many years.

It was built to the designs of Woodward and was the most important Victorian mansion on Anglesey. the outside had intricate stone carving. Nothing survived.

For further information vide an article in Transactions of the Anglesey Antiquarian Society, 1977.

Mansion gone
by: Dyfed Wyn Roberts

The mansion was demolished a long time ago - though I believe the clock tower still stands. A new house has now been built there. Once a year the current owners open the gardens to visitors as part of a Llanwenllwyfo Church fundraising event.
