Abstract

The parish church of Llantriddyd in the Vale of Glamorgan has several late sixteenth-century cross slabs, four of them asking for prayer for the souls of children from the leading local landowning family, the Mansell/Aubrey family of Llantriddyd House. While post-Reformation cross slabs are surprisingly common in south-east Wales, such an explicit request for prayer is unusual. However, there is nothing to suggest that the Mansells and Aubreys were ever overtly recusant Catholics. These slabs are an extreme example of the combination of traditionalism and loyalism which characterised the Welsh response to the Reformation.
