The three Painters were skilled printers . It was the father who printed Philip Yorke 's Royal Tribes of Wales , 1799 , and Edward Edwards 's edition of Browne Willis , Survey of the Cathedral Church of St. Asaph , 1801 . The largest work undertaken in the office was John Humphreys 's translation, published 1813 , of Samuel Clark 's Family Bible . Further personal details concerning Thomas Painter are given by Ifano Jones in his History of Printing and Printers in Wales ; e.g. Thomas Painter was mayor of Wrexham in 1859 , and he was also a director of some local companies.
