The charity was established by Rowland Morgan's will dated 1675. By the twentieth century a number of other Morgan family charities were administered in the same volume. The cash for most of the charities was supplied by the Monmouthshire agricultural estate, and the rest by rentcharges on the Tredegar settled estate. Several of the charities were discharged through intermediaries. Rowland Morgan's charity provided £14 a year towards the support of two aged men and two aged women of the parish of Basaleg (ff. 1-12), and £20 for the support of a schoolmaster at Basaleg, now paid to the Monmouthshire Education Committee (ff. 21-24); Mrs John Morgan's charity (established 1832) of £2 10s. to the poor of Basaleg, now discharged by gifts of coal to persons selected from a list of names received from the vicar of Basaleg (ff. 26-29, 41-42); Mrs Katharine Morgan's charities (established 1724) of £5 to the poor of Basaleg, also now discharged in coal to persons on the vicar's list (ff. 30-36), £12 for the support of a schoolmaster and £2 for the tuition of two boys at Machen (ff. 45-50); Hugh Jones's charity (established 1777) of £15 for the poor of the parish of Machen (ff. 60-63); and Rev. William Edwards charity (established 1788) of £10 for the poor of Llanfihangel-y-fedw and Llanfedw (ff. 70-74), £5 for the poor of Llanedern (ff. 77-80), and £5 for the poor of St Mellons (ff. 83-86).
