Name of creator
Glyneiddan is in the parish of Llanegwad, Carmarthenshire. It is not clear where the Jones-Davies family came from, nor when they moved to Glyneiddan, unless they are related to Lewis Jones MD (fl. 1830-1862) of Gellyglyd, also in the parish of Llanegwad. Henry Jones-Davies (1870-1955) certainly lived at Glyneiddan from about 1892. He was a chairman of the Carmarthen county council and local Liberal politician with a particularly keen interest in local and Welsh agricultural societies.
