Penance Stone at St Michael’s Church, Abergele

Outside the church is a penitential stone where sinners had to do penance by standing by the stone, begging the congregation for mercy as they entered and left the church.

Desperately seeking Squire Jacob

AbergelePost reader John Wallace has been in touch to ask for other readers’ help:

“I am seeking information about a great uncle of mine who kept an hotel in Abergele, and who died at Norcroft, Dundonald Avenue. His name was Squire Jacob or Jacobs. I believe he was a JP. The hotel and the house where he died were probably the same. If you have anything on him in your archives, and especially if you can identify which house in the present Dundonald Avenue was Norcroft, I’d be more than grateful. The period in question is roughly 1900-1930.”

Please use the comments at the bottom of the page if you have any information to help John.
