Edward Pugh in Llangefni, Anglesey, Wales - between 1803 and 1813

from Cambria Depicta: a tour through North Wales, page 84:

Early in the morning I was most agreeably awakened by the sounds of that feminine instrument, the piano-forte, on which Mr. Grindley's amiable daughter was playing the sprightly national air of Sir Harry Ddu, or Black Sir Harry, which she touched with so much certainty, feeling, and unassuming ornament, that it produced a most rapturous effect upon my nerves.
