Administrative / Biographical History

N. Howell Davies, of Trelech a'r Betws, Carmarthenshire, accumulated papers and deeds of the Morgan family. The Rev. Hector Davies Morgan (1785-1850) of Castle Hedingham, Essex, was married to Frances Morgan and had four children. These included Thomas Morgan (fl. 1839-1877), a Cardigan solicitor, whose only daughter, Jane Evans Morgan, married Elliot Lloyd Price of Castlepiggin. Thomas appears to have been succeeded by Charles Evans Davies Morgan-Richardson. The relationship of the family to the depositor is not known.
