Publications for Jane Williams (Ysgafell)

Jane Williams (Ysgafell)

Jane Williams (Ysgafell) (1806-85) described herself as 'Welsh by descent and long residence, but born in Chelsea'. She was a historian, a biographer, a book reviewer and a writer on social and religious issues to do with Wales; her best-known books are probably her response to the 1847 Commissioners' Report on working class education in Wales (Artegall, 1848) and A History of Wales Derived from Authentic Sources (1869). Her work on Betsy Cadwaladyr's autobiography (an attempt to raise money to help the ex-Balaclava nurse in her old age) remains an interesting early example of oral history and was re-issued by Honno in 1987 with an introduction by Deirdre Beddoe.
