Scope and content

Pedigree roll of the Morgan family of Ystradfellte, Dderw and Tredegar. The pedigree begins with Maymark, lord of Brecknock, Gwrgan, prince of Glamorgan, Rees ap Theodor, king of south Wales, Griffith ap Conan, king of north Wales, and king William the conqueror, and continues to William Morgan of Dderw, and Blanche his wife, the daughter of Sir William Morgan of Tredegar. Each person has a painted heraldic shield. Several of the males in the final generations include the date '1633', suggesting that they were alive at the time the pedigree was prepared. These include William Morgan of Dderw, esq., his father Morgan Llywelyn of Ystradfellte and his father-in-law Sir William Morgan of Tredegar, and Sir William's son William Morgan of Machen, as well as the more distantly related Sir Harry Williams, Harry Williams, esq., his son, and Thomas Price, esq. There are a very few later annotations, one dated 1843, which appear to be in the hand of Octavius Morgan.
