1656, night

Robert Burton's History of the Principality of Wales, first published in 1695, recounted the tale of a man whose bedroom was visited by various little beings in 1656. Here is the passage in question from the 1730 second edition:

History of the Principality of Wales - Robert Burton History of the Principality of Wales - Robert Burton

The account of this event, along with other strange occurrences in Carmarthenshire, Pembrokeshire and Cardiganshire, came from letters written to Mr. B. by John Lewis, Esq, a Justice of Peace at Glankerrig near Aberystwyth. Burton claimed it was confirmed "by divers persons of good quality and reputation."


A man and his family being all in bed, he being awake about midnight, perceived by a light entering the little room where he lay, and about a dozen in the shapes of men, and two or three women with small children in their arms following, they seemed to dance, and the chamber appeared much wider and lighter than formerly.

They seemed to eat bread and cheese all about a kind of a tick upon the ground, they offered him some, and would smile upon him, he heard no voice, but calling once upon God to bless him, he heard a whispering voice in Welsh bidding him hold his peace. They continued there about four hours, all which time he endeavoured to wake his wife but could not. Afterwards they went into another room, and having danced awhile departed. He then arose, and though the room was very small, yet he could neither find the door, nor the way to bed again until crying out his wife and family awoke.

"He living within two miles of Justice Lewes, he sent for him, being a poor honest husbandman and of good report, and made him believe he would put him to his oath about the truth of this Relation, who was very ready to take it."

This story was then repeated in various histories - e.g. E. A. William's 1908 Welsh Folk-lore of the Seventeenth Century and Jonathan Ceredig Davies' Folklore of Mid and West Wales of 1911.

Simply Cook Review

I kept seeing ads and deals for Simply Cook everywhere, so as there was a special offer on at OhMyDosh! Rewards (£3 for the box and £3.50 cashback) I figured I had nothing to lose by giving it a try. What Is It? Recipe kits packed into boxes which fit through your letterbox. The usual price is £9.99 for a kit of 4, with each one serving 2-4 people depending on your serving sizes. All you need to do is buy the fresh ingredients required and follow the instructions. Here is Simply Cook's own helpful diagram: Does It Work? For me, as the person just eating it, it was awesome. Everything tasted great - the mushroom penne in particular was so good I went back for seconds - and I liked that the sauces weren't as rich as Anthony would usually make them. For Anthony, who cooked them, they weren't as impressive. He complained that the food was bland and that it was actually quite a lot of faff, as Lidl didn't stock everything we needed which meant another trip ou
