1st February 1879 Pontypool Free Press
On Wednesday morning last an inquest was held at Pengroe-sopped by E D Batt Esq., coroner on the body of an illegitimate child of Elizabeth Parry of Penystar Farm.
It appears that shortly before the death of the child Elizabeth Parry had been enceinte and stated her intention of going to her father’s house in Breconshire in order to be confined there.
She left the neighbours house and proceeded to her present residence where she was immediately confined.
The girl had no-one with her and had the child on the floor.
A medical gentleman testified that the child had been born alive but had died soon after its birth.
A verdict of death from natural causes was returned.
