[N.B.—William Dawkyn was perpetual vicar of Saint Mary's in 1546, and John Pyll, B.L., circa 1558. At that time Saint Mary's was the premier parish church of Cardiff, with Saint John's and Roath under it. The living of Saint Mary's still subsisted in 1663, when William Erbery was the vicar, and the yet more famous Walter Cradock his curate—both ejected for Nonconformity.]
