Dates of existence


David Davies (1745-1804) of Machynlleth, Montgomeryshire, and later Aberystwyth, Cardiganshire, skinner, had two sons: David Davies (1774-1824), banker, and Robert Davies (1789-1841). David Davies the younger married twice, firstly to Mabella Jones, and had a son, also called David Davies (1802-1836), and secondly to Blanche Maria Rogers (d 1846) of Carnachen-wen, Mathry, Pembrokeshire, which then became the family home. David Davies III appears to have lived at Carnachen-wen until about 1833, when he acquired Castle Green, Cardigan, Cardiganshire, where he died, in 1836, without issue. Robert Davies married Eliza Charles (1798-1876) of Carmarthen, Carmarthenshire, and had several children, including the Rev. David Charles Davies (1826-1891) and Robert Joseph Davies (1839-1892), who acquired Cwrtmawr, Llangeitho, Cardiganshire. He in turn married Frances Humphreys, descended from the Rev. Peter Williams. Their children included John Humphreys Davies (1871-1926), Walter Ernest Llewellyn Davies (1874-1941), and Annie Jane Davies (1873-1942), who married T. E. Ellis, MP (1859-1899) and had a son, Dr Thomas Iorwerth Ellis (1899-1970), teacher and lecturer, who lived in Aberystwyth, Cardiganshire.
