Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Glynllifon, near Caernarfon in north Wales was the ancestral home of the Glynne and later the Wynn (Wynne) family. The Glynnes were reputedly descended from Cilmin Droed-ddu, founder of the fourth noble tribe of Gwynedd who arrived from Cumbria in the 9th century. C. 1700, Frances Glynne, heir of John Glynne, married Thomas Wynn of Boduan (1678-1749) and the surname Glynne was lost. Thomas Wynn (1677-1749) was made a baronet in 1742 and his grandson Sir Thomas Wynn (1736-1807) became the first Lord Newborough in 1776. The large Glynllifon Estate, was run by successive generations of the Glynnes and Wynns until about the 1960s by which time a lot of the estate had been sold.
