  • William Morgan (c 1640 - 28 April 1680) was a Welsh landowner and politician who sat in the House of Commons of England between 1659 and 1680.
  • William Morgan was the eldest son and heir of Thomas Morgan (died 1664), of Machen, and his second wife Elizabeth Wyndham daughter of Francis Wyndham of Sandhill Park, Bishop’s Lydeard, Somerset. His brother was John Morgan. William was a student at Queen's College, Oxford in 1656 and at Gray's Inn in 1658.[1]
  • He was first returned as a Member of Parliament for Monmouthshire to the Third Protectorate Parliament in 1659. He was proposed as a Knight of the Royal Oak for Monmouthshire in 1660, and continued to represent the county in the House of Commons until his death.[2]
  • Morgan married his first cousin Blanche Morgan, daughter of his father's sister, Elizabeth Morgan, and William Morgan, on 4 November 1661. He rebuilt Tredegar House on a very grand scale, with the help of his wife's huge dowry. Blanche inherited her father's estates at Dderw, Brecknockshire in 1658, after the death of her brother William. This gave Morgan and his descendants considerable political influence in the county for generations.[3] His children by Blanche included two sons, Thomas and John, and a daughter, Blanche.
  • After the death of Blanche on 23 March 1673, Morgan married Elizabeth Dayrell, widow of Sir Francis Dayrell and daughter of William Lewis of Bletchington, Oxfordshire.[1] However, Elizabeth proved to be of unsound mind. Morgan arranged dual marriages between his eldest son, Thomas, and Martha, daughter of Sir Edward Mansel; and between his daughter Blanche (d. 1682) and Mansel's eldest son, Edward.[4]
  • However, William did not live to see the marriages carried out, dying in London in 1680. Blanche died before marrying Mansel's son, who died unmarried. However, Thomas, who inherited William's estates, did marry Martha Mansel.

  • John Morgan (c.1641–1 January 1715) was a Welsh merchant, sheriff and MP (for Monmouth Boroughs).
  • He was born the fourth son of Thomas Morgan of Machen and established himself as a London merchant, acquiring a large fortune trading with the West Indies. His brother was William Morgan.
  • Determined to leave London and return to his native shire he purchased Rhiwperra Castle from a cousin as his home for 12,400 pounds. He was appointed High Sheriff of Monmouthshire in 1697, custos rotulorum for Monmouthshire in 1700 and Lord Lieutenant of Brecknockshire and Monmouthshire in 1715.
  • In 1701 he was elected to Parliament to represent Monmouth Boroughs until 1705. In 1705 he contested and lost the election for knight of the shire (MP) for Monmouthshire.
  • He died in 1715 and was buried at Machen, Monmouthshire. He never married and left his estate to his nephew John Morgan (of Rhiwpera), whereby it became part of estates of the Tredegar Morgans.
  • From:


  • Sir Anthony Morgan (died 1665) of Kilflgin, Monmouthshire, was a Royalist officer during the English Civil War.[1]
  • Morgan was the son of Sir William Morgan, of Tredegar, Monmouthshire, and Bridget, daughter and heiress of Anthony Morgan of Heyford, Northamptonshire.[2] He seems identical with the Anthony Morgan who was appointed by the Spanish ambassador Cardenas, on 9 June 1640, to levy and transport the residue of the two thousand soldiers afforded to him by King Charles I.[3]
  • On 21 October 1642 Morgan was knighted by Charles at Southam, Warwickshire,[4] and two days later fought at the Battle of Edgehill. By the death of his half-brother, Colonel Thomas Morgan, who was killed at the Battle of Newbury 20 September 1643, he became possessed of the manors of Heyford and Clasthorpe, Northamptonshire; and had other property in Momouthshire, Warwickshire, and Westmoreland. He subsequently went abroad, but returned in 1648, when, though his estates were sequestered by the parliament by an ordinance dated 5 January 1646, he imprisoned several of his tenants in Banbury Castle for not paying their rent to him.[5]
  • Morgan tried to compound for his property in May 1650, and took the covenent and negative oath, but being represented as a "papist delinquent", he was unable to make terms with the Committee for Compounding with Delinquents.[6] In August 1658 he obtained leave to pay a visit to France.[7]
  • One Anthony Morgan was ordered to be arrested and brought before Secretary Bennet on 5 June 1663, and his papers were seized.[8] He died in St. Giles-in-the-Fields, London, about June 1665,[9] 1665, leaving by his wife Elizabeth (? Fromond) an only daughter, Mary.[10]

  • .... He left his estates to his son, William, and provided for a portion of up to £2,000 for his daughter, Blanche. Morgan entreated his children to be guided by his brother-in-law, Thomas Morgan† of Machen and, mindful of his legal difficulties and earlier indiscretions, advised them that ‘generally the choice of youth in the way of marriage is heady and foreruns hasty, and late repentance which followeth at the heels’.20 Blanche eventually inherited the Dderw estate and married William Morgan of Machen, who represented Monmouthshire in Richard Cromwell’s Parliament and also in the 1660s and 1670s. A portrait of Morgan, painted around 1640, was formerly held at Tredegar Park, Monmouthshire.21
