MORGAN FAMILY

Coat of Arms



HISTORY:

The history of the Morgan family begins in 605 with their ancestor, the Cymric King Gwynedd. Through a long line of royalty and gentry, the line came down to Sir Morgan ap Meredith, Knight of Tredegar and Manmouthshire; who married Cicely, daughter of Daniel ap Marich, Lord of Llanmere. Sir Morgan died in the year 1332.

The Morgan line continued till Frances Morgan, who married secondly a kinsman, Sir Edward Morgan, the 2nd Baronet of Llantrarnam. He led Pencoyd Castle. His son, the 4th Baronet, Sir James Morgan continued the tradition of all the baronets of Llantarnam. They adhered to the old religion. They were continually sequestered by Parliment of their estates, but through resolve and political action were able to restore them. They sheltered priests in their castle. Finally, in 1666, Parliament took the castle but allowed them to retain Llantarnam Abbey.

Thier son, Edward Morgan, joined the Society of Friends and their records appear at Gwynedd, Philadelphia County, Radnor, and Haverford and are available in the Historical Society's collection in Philadelphia. Edward had a 10-Room log home in Jowmencin, PA that is now a museum. It was featured in the October 1982 issue of House & Garden Magazine. His daughter, Sarah, married Squire Boone, Sr., and their son Squire Boone is our common ancestor through Daniel on Zetta's side, and his sister Mary on my side.
