Morgan Family of Wenallt Manor,
Llandetty, Breconshire

By James M Burton, 2014

This is a sub-thesis and report as to the origins, work and legacy of the Morgan family of Wenallt, a former manor from c.1100. It is part of my investigations as to the origins of an Anna Maria who, by her first marriage to John Morgan c.1680 came into the administration of Palleg Manor in Ystradgynlais. So much information I uncovered I decided to impart it here for public use. I have based the story of the Manor by interpreting the data left to us from old MSS and may contain small errors, misguided assumptions and conjecture.

Parish Description
Llandetty, also spelt Llandeti, Landeti, Llanddettie, Llanthette, Llanthetty, Llandetten, Lanthethy, Llandettou, Llanddettuye or even St Tetti is a parish to the south of Talybont on Usk. Located here are ruins of an iron age fort, and a Roman road passing straight through. By the Norman period it became part of the Manor of Pencelli, with sheep farms and a deer park, which was broken up over time into several demesne, of which Wenallt Manor became a separate part. The parish church almost in disuse, being near a river in an oval enclosure suggests early Celtic origins, dedicated to a Saint Tetta, of whom I think it best to say no more, the current building is 14th century with alterations in 1872. The area therefore has a very long and illustrious history.

The Usk canal (still in use) came in 1797 with moderate new settlement at Talybont and with the widening of the B-Road, the railways c.1860 and Talybont lake in 1930 ruined much of the ancient and medieval dwellings near the church, in the northern hamlet of Vro. There were also several other manors in the parish, the south part of Llandetty, the hamlet of Dyffryn consisting of farms and sheep walks.

Early Origins of Wenallt
Wenallt is an area in the northern part of the parish, the extent of which contained the manor and church. There may well have been farms present from the very earliest times in some form, considering the above ancient remains, at the sites of either Upper or Lower Wenallt, Upper in this context meaning 'most important', but Lower has an older mediaeval 16thC longhouse, and was split into 2 parts, possibly 4, for its management as a Manor from an early date. Danywenallt, Pantywenallt & Upper & Lower Wenallt farms are suggestive of this, and may even have been a split through Welsh inheritance laws called 'gavelkind' prior to 1536.

W.Rees quotes mention of Wenallt in his compilation map of the 1300s, the document of which I am currently trying to locate Wenallt Map 1300, but mention is not found frequently until the 1500s. The literal translation of the name is white hill, no doubt taken from the hill fort of the same name. On a higher level gwen, the feminine of gwyn could be associated with goodness, cleanliness or distinguishment. You could even stretch it to be being associated with a Lady Gwen. The lord of the manor is always described as 'of Wenallt' but could well have been based at Llandetty Hall, although no history prior to 1650 is found for that house, so we may also consider the ruling families living and split between Upper and Lower Wenallt farms.

Lordship of Pencelli
Also spelt Penkelly, Penkethly, Penketheley. In the Norman period Wenallt Manor was one of many under the stewardship of Pencelli Manor, appurtenant to the Manor of Brecon held under the Earl of Hereford in the 'Marches of Wales' for the Crown which was held by many distinguished persons, the steward of which was based at Pencelli castle. It comprised of the commottes of Llanfrigan, Llandetty, Llanfrynach, Vaynor, parts of Llansanffraed & Llanfilo within the Cantref of Talgarth, which from 1536 were known as parishes within the Hundred of Pencelli. The name in Welsh signifies 'head of the woods', it being extensively forested for many millennia. Pencelli Castle was a ruin by 1400. Synonymous with the Lordship was the Barony of Pencelli, the purpose of which was to raise a number of trained armed knights to fight at the side of the Royal Household.

Wenallt therefore was due the usual customs to Pencelli & Brecon castle, such as prise of ale, cows, flour, military service, tithes and taxes when it was a feudal manor. Wales suffered an apartheid at that time, Wenallt being in 'English Pencelli' and therefore run under English law to 1536 and beyond, split from 'Welsh' Pencelli around 1283. It appears that it parted company with Brecon manor on the inheritance of Mary & Eleanor, da. of Humphrey de Bohun in 1373. Eleanor gets Brecon, and Mary the 'other bits' including Pencelli and marries Henry IV. This partition was contested up until Henry VI. No doubt there was a Welsh speaking community here in service upon the farms, with John Morgan himself claiming descent from the ancient native princes. By around 1750 it was split into 5 different Lordships, English, Welsh, Cwmorgwm, Glyncollwm, Wenallt and Cwmbanw, the boundaries intermingled which led to many disputes, each with a Court Leet, of which tenants might attend 2 of.

Civil War In Llandetty
An ideal and quiet hamlet, the most exciting thing to allegedly happen here was that after the eviction of the parish priest, Richard Williams in 1650, Colonel Jenkin Jones of Maesmawr, Parliamentarian built or extended Llanddetty Hall and supposedly milked his sheep in the church, although he was vicar of Cadoxton-juxta-Neath (and after 6 years vacant, rector of Llandetty). He became a fierce anti-Catholic, embracing Puritanism, known as a "zealous preacher" throughout the country although he was not averse to using violence and force of arms to stress his point. By evidence of papers from the period a John Morgan of Wenallt, related to him, assisted in his shenanigans in the district as a self appointed captain, providing uniforms for his regiment that fought at Gloucester.

On hearing of the return of Charles II a muster of 500 people gathered in the churchyard, whence Jenkin was summarily arrested by Henry Williams of Llangattock, later to be brother-in-law to the latter John's son, and taken to trial in London for sedition (apparently jailed in Carmarthen). Tradition has him firing his pistol into the church door uttering an obscenity. However the reports of the time state that armed guards were sent to the meeting, so any of these may have been the culprit. Jenkin's son who did land deals with troublesome Gunters of the area was also Sheriff of Brecon at this time who had replaced briefly Edward Williams of Gwernyfigin who seized many manors, even from his close family. Wenallt was not sequestered on the restoration, and a John Morgan of Wenallt is elected a commissioner for raising tax for the new king, so maybe he was a double agent or pardoned. Could he have informed his later relation Henry of the Llandetty meeting? Letters from the Parliamentary sequestration solicitor in Brecon, dated 1651 says John refused to give information about estates in the area when acting as sub-sequestration officer, perhaps protecting royalists? The above Capt.John Morgan maybe a nickname for Morgan Jones d.1660, whom many people suggest, as it is much too early a date for his son to have participated in the war (see ref.).

Lords of Wenallt Manor
Hugh Thomas (County Herald c.1693) details that the manor came to the Morgans via the marriage of Mallt ferch Howell of Maesmawr farm nearby to Morgan ap John c.1550, who's family originate from Aberysgyr, and according to genealogists descend lineally from Bleddyn Maenyrch last native lord of Brecknock. The advowson of the church comes to them via their marriage into the Vaughan family, from whom they buy Bronllys Castle.

With a generic family name being passed down alternatively in the forms of Morgan ap John & John ap Morgan by patronymic custom through the ages, the identities of the incumbent lord of the manor becomes difficult and muddled, as exampled previously, especially when the Manor of Wenallt is split into four farms of similar name, they may even have lived at a precursor of Llanddetty Hall. However there are no parish records or tombs relating to the Morgans in Llanddeti surviving, even those mentioned by Theo. Jones in 1809, we assume they were destroyed in the later revamp of the church or they were buried & married elsewhere.

Certain though is that Morgan Jones (also known as John Morgan?) left his estates in 1660 to his 3 sons, of which John ap Morgan gains all, who hastily married Mary Awbrey in that year, only daughter to Dr Thomas, chancellor St Davids (late of Llantrythid), with who came the marriage dowry of Palleg manor in 1666, according to a lease in the Tredegar papers (also evidenced by John Awbrey being executor of his son John's 1699 will, cousin Lewis Awbrey being enrolled in Llandetty c.1709, and an MS family tree by Hugh Thomas c.1693). In turn the estates go to son John ap Morgan c.1685, who married Anna Maria da. of James Brailsford, haberdasher of London.

With only one son produced, John senior dies in the same year as two of his brothers in 1699, leaving everything to wife Anna Maria who outlives 5 of the testators in the will and her son, and remarries James Hughes of Gelliwig, Llanvetherine around 1709, becoming Lord & Lady of Wenallt and patrons of the church briefly. They proceed to pull down farms and orchards on their combined estates (presumably to improve them, the court says to spoil them) throughout Glamorgan and Brecon. A surviving nephew-in-law, Edward Williams of Llangattock who is being cared for by William Morgan of Llangasty Tal-Y-Llyn, a surviving Uncle to John contests this misuse in the High Court in 1717, and gains part of their estates. Anna then arranges the marriage of her daughter Anna Maria to Edward, who by this route comes into possession of Palleg by dowry, but he dies in 1726, leaving Palleg again to mother-in-law Anna. More on this complex issue is found in my thesis on Palleg Manor.

I think it remarkable to note that the brothers Charles, John & Thomas Morgan all died in 1698-9. Charles's will after his death was contested by his brother William in 1698. He produced the supposed original will to the church court where he is named as the executor, not Thomas, remarking at why his older brother John is not mentioned and why his younger brother should inherit in the contested will. The will stood because there were so many prominent witnesses. Thomas and John thereafter shortly died in 1699. A family feud and mystery murder maybe? Wenallt became part of the Buckland estate nearby around 1714, with its supposed purchase by Roger Jones a distant cousin and thence the Gwynne family and continued so until a Mr Berry, all of Buckland House nearby. He was visited by Lloyd George and bought the title Lord Buckland, which included most of the Lordship of Pencelli. Whence he died the separate parts including Wenallt Manor were auctioned to the public in 1935.

Morgans of Wenallt

  • Notes on Pedigree: The family tree is primarily based on the work of others, with my own contribution & correction. Most trees state Morgan Jones d.1660 was the father of John Morgan d.1699, the evidence suggests otherwise. The extant wills of John's brothers Charles & Thomas also proved in 1699 name a John Morgan as being the father of John Morgan d.1699, and him having a will, however I find none such despite extensive searching in PRO, Ancestry, NLW, PCC, therefore this could be a nickname. They also mention an Aunt Jane and Uncle William, as scribed from Llanddeti M.I. by Theo Jones, being children of Morgan Jones and of having brothers Hugh and Thomas, NOT on that tomb. The Oxford Alumni also give John Morgan as father to Thomas & Charles, brothers (born c.1673) in 1690. The John who died in 1699 only had one son, John and mentions siblings Hugh, William and Mary, also mentioned in a 1717 court case. There is also an MSS in the British Library written by Thomas Hugh c.1668, related to the family, which supports my version of the tree, so not a correction after all, just an oversight by others. Therefore I insert a new generation here based on those original wills & documents.

    The Morgan Jones d.1660 connected with this family seems the obvious choice for grandfather, and has some distant connection with Jenkin Jones of Llandetty Hall. To further confuse matters there are scores of documents describing a John Morgan being partner in crime with Jenkin Jones in Llandetti during the Civil War 1642-60, much too early I feel to be Morgan Jones's son unless he was born in 1620, 30 years previous to his other siblings. The patron of Llanddetty in 1626 is suggested as being in the minority of a John Morgan (under 21 years) so there could be credence to that, and Morgan Jones erroneously placed in the tree. Therefore...I suggest hesitantly that this was either:

    • The nickname for Morgan Jones in the civil war as proposed by others
    • OR that the dates for the family should be pushed back
    • OR Morgan Jones be removed from this family tree
    • Otherwise it is a close relation, at a stretch Morgan Jones' father John at around 60 yrs old
