The Dunraven estate comprised the Glamorgan estates of the Edwin family of Llanmihangel Betws Iarll, Glamorgan, and the Glamorgan and Gloucestershire estate of the Wyndham families of Dunraven, Glamorgan, and of Clearwell, Gloucestershire. The Dunraven and Clearwell estates were united when Jane, daughter and eventual heiress of John Wyndham of Dunraven, married her cousin Thomas Wyndham of Clearwell. When Jane died, Thomas married secondly Anne, daughter of Samuel Edwin of Llanmihangel. Thomas Wyndham died in 1751 and Anne his second wife in 1758. Their son and heir Charles Wyndham, MP for Glamorgam, 1780-1789, inherited both estates.

The Llanmihangel estate had been purchased in 1685 from Sir Robert Thomas by Humphrey Edwin, alderman of London, and had passed successively to his son Samuel Edwin and to Samuel's son, Charles Edwin. The latter's nephew Charles Wyndham inherited the Llanmihangel estate and assumed the surname Edwin in accordance with his uncle's will. Following his death in 1801 the three estate of Dunraven, Clearwell and Llanmihangel passed to his son, Thomas Wyndham, on whose death in 1814 the estates passed to his daughter, Caroline who, in 1810, had married the Hon. Windham-Quin, later 2nd Earl of Dunraven, of Adare, County Limerick.
