posted in: Newspapers | 0

Considerable interest was manifested at Beddgelert on Friday, the 2nd inst., on the marriage of Mr Evan Jones, who has for twelve years been master of the national school, to Miss Ellen Griffith, of Gwynant-street, Beddgelert. The service was conducted by the Rev. R. E. Priestley, incumbent of the parish. The bridegroom’s best man was Mr R. E. Williams, Portmadoc; Miss Jane Jones acted as bridesmaid. After the service the company drove to the Snowdon Ranger Hotel, where an excellent luncheon was served. On leaving and returning to the village the party was loudly cheered by the school children, who were allowed a holiday in honour of the event, and in the evening received a liberal supply of nuts and oranges.
