Tymawr Ghost Bryneglwys

This Ghost plagued the servants, pinched and tormented them, and they
could not get rest day nor night; such was the character of this Ghost as
told me by Mr. Richard Jones, Ty'n-y-wern. But, said I, what was the
cause of his acts, was it the Ghost of anyone who had been murdered? To
this question, Jones gave the following account of the Ghost's arrival at
Tymawr. A man called at this farm, and begged for something to eat, and
as he was shabbily dressed, the girls laughed at him, and would not give
him anything, and when going away, he said, speaking over his shoulder,
You will repent your conduct to me. In a few nights afterwards the
house was plagued, and the servants were pinched all night. This went on
days and days, until the people were tired of their lives. They,
however, went to Griffiths, Llanarmon, a minister, who was celebrated as
a Layer of Ghosts, and he came, and succeeded in capturing the Ghost in
the form of a spider, and shut him up in his tobacco box and carried him
away, and the servants were never afterwards plagued.
