Pantperthog Mill (Pantperthog is a small settlement of a few houses
pant = hollow, depression, small valley
perth = hedge, bush
perthog = bushy (i.e. scrubland, undergrowth)
For location go to http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/getamap/
Click on the green rectangular panel (I want to Get-a-map) at the bottom right.
Type in the grid reference SH749043 in the search box.
You will be presented with either a section of the Ordnance Survey
1:25,000 or 1:50,000 maps.
You can zoom in or out as you wish and also view adjacent sections
via the panel on the left.
The other abode name is very likely to be Tai newyddion,
Tai-newyddion or Tainewyddion.
ty = house (plural - tai)
newydd = new (with plural ending - newyddion)
It would be difficult to judge what "Mal(l)t D" -" means out of
context. Does it occur anywhere else in the curate's entries?
