Grandma, as a school girl in Bagillt. Louise Elizabeth Thomas went to school in the village and told a story about a boy in rags in class who lost his temper with the Headteacher, throwing an ink pot at her. That teacher went on to sponsor the boy who became a famous Welsh poet. Louise had a brother George and a sister Lydia. Their house was bombed in the Second World War in Bagillt. They had a very comfortable life until their father, a merchant sailor, died very young in the early 30's. Mother: Isabella McGregor-Grey Thomas, brought her three children up with very little money. Who was this Poet Grandma referred to?
