Whose name I do not know (I looked everywhere on the site). Big Kudos & Thanks for the exceptional history, pictures and Great sense of humor

THOMAS MORGAN (1534 - 1603) of Machen and Tredegar. In 1559 he married ELIZABETH BODENHAM (b. 1538). He built Pencoed (pronounced "Pen-koyd") Castle, set in around 370 acres of rolling farmland about one km. from the village of Llandevaud in Monmouthshire (now the county of Gwent).
  The castle is a fortified Tudor manor house thought to have been built during the first quarter of the 16th Century on the site of a moated Norman castle held in 1270 by Sir Richard de la More and in 1306 by Maurice and Walter de Kemeys. (The statue in front is of Lord Tredegar, a Morgan who took part in Britain's most famous military tragedy—the Charge of the Light Brigade during the Crimean War.) The manor house appears to incorporate parts of the earlier castle.

  In 1485, the Battle of Bosworth ended the Wars of the Roses and it became possible to build a large family home without having to worry too much about arrow slits and gun ports. Pencoed reflects a peaceful (and for some) a prosperous period in Wales. Nearby Llanmartin Church once boasted a carefully wrought chapel with carved effigies of an ancient Morgan knight and his wife—but a later owner of the manor stripped the lead from the chapel roof and time and decay made this memorial less memorable. Today the entire estate has fallen into disrepair; the castle was recently bought by a local businessman named Mr. Peter Morgan, so it is Morgan-owned once more. Mr. Morgan says that respect for the integrity of the castle and its environs will govern all decisions in any repair work done on the castle. (Note to Peter: LOSE THE TRAILER IN FRONT.)
  Anyway, back to Thomas. He was Middle Temple in the law courts in London in 1567-77. He then became a Sheriff in 1581, and a member of Parliament in 1589.
