Croeso n’ol …………Welcome back………!!

After a few decades, the name New York again features as a cottage in Cilycwm.

A saying from the old residents of this community –

Cilycwm is only as BIG as from New York to Pennsylvania.

New York , a small cottage by Penstacan, last known resident in 1843 – William & Margaret Thomas (a miner) baptised his son David.

Pennsylvania, a cottage just below Ysgol Cilycwm, where a small stream joins the Gwenlais.  Last known resident was Rees Thomas who died at the age of 64 in 1830.
