was so approachable and understanding, full of sympathy and one always
came away feeling better for the time spent in his company. His boyish
spirit made it difficult at times to realise that he was over 84 years of
age until one noticed the fragile and wasting figure making his way to
God's House every Sunday through all weathers. The last occasion he
did this was on a terrible cold day when he attended Divine Service at
Holy Trinity Church only two days before he passed away. He loved
the Church and Sacraments and all she stands for. When his wife died
a few years ago he revealed the strength of his faith by the grand way in
which he bore his great loss. He was a humble consistent follower of our
Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ a loyal and faithful Priest of the Church
a friend to all and an enemy to no one. Many will for a long time to
come thank God as they remember with gratitude His servant David
Stedman Davies.
May his soul, through the Mercy of God Rest in Peace.

what a fallacy that statement was, and there is still more material
available.
Mr. Stedman Davies had been a keen antiquarian for many years,
and had done much research work in Lincolnshire where he had spent
the greater part of his active clerical life. When he retired to Llan-
drindod Wells, nearly twenty years ago, he became interested at once
in our County and one of the results was the formation of the
Radnorshire Society. He had driven a car for years, and now as one of
the Secretaries to the Society, he found an added interest motoring
