The Calvinist firebrand William Prichard (1702-1773),was briefly a tenant here but a campaign of harassment against him and his family orchestrated by the vicar of nearby Llanffinan church drove them out. They then moved to Bodlew, Llanddaniel, SH4869, where again they suffered persecution and eviction. Learning of their plight William Bulkeley the squire-diarist of Brynddu, Llanfechell, SH3791, offered Prichard the tenancy of Clwchdernog where he lived unmolested from 1749 until his death in 1773.
