Dates of existence
Sir Rice Mansel (d. 1559) of Penrice and Oxwich purchased Margam Abbey from the Crown. The family's connection with the Talbots of Wiltshire was established when John Talbot of Lacock Abbey married Mary Mansel, daughter of Thomas Mansel (d. 1723), the first baron Mansel. The manor of St Hilary in Cowbridge, Glamorgan originates from the sixteenth century. It became part of the Traherne estate during the nineteenth century and was also the residence of Sir Thomas Mansel Franklen (d. 1928), antiquary and clerk of the peace for Glamorgan.
