      Following is a newspaper transcript dated June 19, 1914
      £74,000 FORTUNE

      Miss Ellen Lloyd Davies, who recently inherited the estate of the gross value of £74,000 from Thomas Hughes Ford Hughes (her bachelor brother who has lived a life of a recluse at Carmarthen) passed away at her residence, 57 Lammas street, Carmarthen, on Saturday last, at the age of 73 years.
      The announcement of Mr. Ford Hughes's will combined a tolerance of wealth and loneliness. Although well connected and the owner of a considerable estate in West Wales, he lived alone in Union street, Carmarthen, for 25 years, and allowed hardly anyone to enter. For 20 years he very seldom left his abode, and lately he followed the life of a recluse. One morning, early in March last, a messenger delivering provisions received no response to his knocks, and on fearing Mr. Hughes was dead, he informed the police. Upon entry being made into the residence Mr. Hughes was found in a state of collapse. He was removed to the workhouse infirmary, where he died a few days later. He was the son of Mr. Davies, Nantgwilan, Cardiganshire was well educated, and prior to entering a life of seclusion had traveled extensively. The terms of his will published about seven weeks ago, showed that he died intestate, leaving estate of which the net value was sworn at £7,711, 7s, 9d and letters of administration of his property were granted to his sister , Miss Ellen Lloyd Davies, of 57 Lammas street Carmarthen, as the only next of kin. The property includes the an estate at Nantgwilan, Cardiganshire. There is also property at Pembrokeshire. Miss Davies, who has now passed away, had been a Roman Catholic for many years, and when her brother's will was published she was asked what she intended doing. She replied that her only wish was to go to Rome to see the Pope. Her continued illness precluded her realising her wish.
      The funeral took place at Troedyraur on Thursday last, Father Bernard, C.P. assisted by Father Xeiverb, C.P. officiating.
