Description area

Dates of existence


The provenance of this group of charters and deeds may be traced, for the most part, to the Vaughan family of Llwydiarth. The majority of the Ystrad Marchell charters, other Montgomeryshire deeds, charters of the lords of Powys and Bala Lake deeds almost all relate to lands which eventually came into the ownership of the Vaughans. The Llwydiarth estate was acquired by Wynnstay following the marriage of Anne Vaughan to Sir Watkin Williams-Wynn in 1715. For further details of provenance and history for each group of deeds, see series level descriptions.
