History in Gwynfe.

The Court Baron and the Court Leet spring from the middle Ages.

 

THE COURTS BARON OF THE MANOR OF VELINDRE SAWDDE THE LORDSHIPS OF MOTHVEY AND LLANDDEUSANT THE PERFETH MANOR OF GWYNFE AND VABON.
 
     Each manor, an estate granted from a superior lord or even the King himself, belonged to a lord of the manor, who was responsible for organizing the life of the estate for his own profit and the rights of the workers living there.

     This was done through the court baron every two or three weeks. The court dealt with such matters as the transfer of the land, the organization of the common fields and meadows, the abatement of nuisances, such as defective hedges, blocking of paths, straying beasts, etc and anything concerning the occupation of the inhabitants, which in most manors were agricultural.
     The Steward, who ran the court for the lord, kept a watchful eye over the lord’s rights, including rentals, heriots and boon work.

     The hundred court, dating from Saxon times, could be compared to an English District Council, consisting of representatives from all its manors and unlike the court baron had jurisdiction over petty offences and civil affairs. Lords who found this irksome could apply to the Crown to have the rights of the Hundred Court applied to them for use in their own manor.
     Such additional courts were called Court Leet and met twice a year and it did not take long for a lord to fuse his court baron and Court Leet into one court, meeting only twice annually.     

    The Leet Court still continues and is now held at Gwynfe Community Hall and Farmers attend from all over our catchment area; Sheep are brought down from Common Land every January and July by their owners, but any Sheep which cannot be identified, are brought here and offered for Sale.
