Welsh Gypsies and Travellers

The Travellers of Wales are descendents of the Woods and other families who migrated in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries from the South West of England. They lived their nomadic lives separate from the Welsh community for several generations. The Woods were known as wood carvers, wagon builders, horse dealers and fishermen. They were also excellent musicians; Abraham Wood is credited with introducing the fiddle into Wales and many are skilled harpists and fiddlers who performed Welsh music. Although they mostly live in houses they have tended to retain their traditions.
