Clock 1764
A country made oak grandfather clock with brass face, by Richard Watkin. Unusual in that the date, 1764 and the initials TI are inlaid on the front. This clock is with Liz from Auntie Mary, before that Brooklands, and before that the Hendai.. Not known which of the Lewis/Thomas family houses this came from originally, but definitely a family piece.

Welsh dresser 18C
This beautiful 18C oak Welsh dresser has brass swan neck handles, spice drawers and a pot board (the bottom layer). It was probably from the part of the family which had connections to Lewis the Van, the daughter Elizabeth Lewis married Other, Earl of Plymouth who owned St Fagans. The pewter garnish has always been with the dresser and some of these carry the Plymouth arms. It was left in Lyn Thomas (Granny Brooklands) Will to her son Wilfred, and is now with David Thomas.
