LLANTEG MAN WHO LIVED WITH CANNIBALS Narberth Weekly News 17 June 1943
News has been received from his wife in Northern Australia that Mr Wilfred Glanville, eldest son of Mrs Glanville of Ashdale, Llanteg, has joined the U.S. Navy at the age of 53 years!. Before joining, Mr Glanville held an important engineering position in Northern Australia. Some years ago he came home on a month's visit here. Prior to this he formed one of an exploring party of four men who penetrated into the hitherto unknown part of the island of New Guinea. On reaching their objective they were met and surrounded by a tribe of Cannibals who had never before seen a white man, and who lived under exactly the same primitive conditions as did their forefathers of the Stone Age. For a week these adventurers slept every night in the open encircled by the men of the tribe!. After their return to the Australian mainland, their adventures and scientific investigations were recorded in one of the principal monthly magazines of the USA, which obtained the exclusive copyright. This one, among many other episodes in his remarkable career, will serve to illustrate the type of man he is. Of medium height and powerfully built, he is today a 'tough guy' in the truest sense of the expression. He was an old boy of the Tenby County School, and late of Owen's Technical College, Manchester. His old friends and acquaintances will wish him all that is best, god-speed and some day a safe return.

Since the act of 1692 strict criteria had been laid down as to who in each parish would be available to perform Jury service. In the listing for Little Newcastle of 16 September 1808 the constable Henry Lewis Petty, gives us a full and clear picture of these qualifications which also holds good for the Parish of Crunwere and thus gives us some indication of the monetary value of village members during this period . Quote : A true list containing the Name and Places of Abode together with the title and additions of all persons between the ages of 21 and 70 (years) dwelling within the Parish of Little Newcastle qualified to serve on juries, that is to say of every person that has in his own name or in trust for him within the County aforesaid sixe pounds a year above - Reprizes of freehold or Copyhold land and tenements or of lands and tenements and antient demerece or in rents or in all or any of their In fee simple feetail or for the life of himself or some other person on having land in procession in his own right of £20 a year above the reserved rent being hold by lease of five hundred years or more or for 99 years or any other term and determinable on one or more lives. Records are missing for 1836 - 1876 inclusive except for 1846 which has a list for Tenby St Mary out Liberty only. Assuming that members of the parish remained in the same abode for the years that the returns for Jury service are missing, then for the periods 1786 - 1835 and 1877 - 1900, we are able to produce the following table :

Crunwere School Log book
15 May 1907 York Glanville left to attend Whitland County School
08 September 1909 A silver clasp was awarded to Winifred Glanville for two years perfect attendance
10 December 1909 Corporal punishment administered to Reggie (Reginald) Glanville for being impudent - two strokes on the hand with the cane
08 July 1910 Rector (Of Crunwere Church) presented bronze clasp for one year's perfect attendance to Winifred Glanville
((Winifred Glanville completed three years full attendance at school and was a healthy child. Unfortunately at about the age of thirteen she went on a school trip to Pendine and came home feeling unwell. The doctor was called and it was thought that she had rheumatic fever and would probably not live beyond sixteen years of age. However this proved incorrect, for although disabled and forced to use a wheelchair until her early twenties, Winifred lived to the ripe old age of 76. She had very bad knees and was only able to carry cups and so forth on the backs of her hands. It seems more likely now that she had contracted a form of polio)).
