History

John Montgomery Traherne, probably the most notable Glamorgan antiquary of his day, was born at Coedriglan, near Cardiff, the son of Llewellyn Traherne, who had inherited the Coedriglan estate. John Montgomery Traherne's early interest in scientific matters is evidenced by his later election to the Linnaean Society (1813), the Geological Society (1817) and the Royal Society (1823). In 1830 he married Charlotte Louisa, daughter of Thomas Mansel Talbot of Margam. Having been for some time deeply immersed in the history of Glamorgan, he was elected to the Society of Antiquaries in 1838. From 1844 to 1851 he served as chancellor of the diocese of Llandaff. Traherne corresponded extensively with leading figures in both the scientific and literary worlds. Sir Rice Mansel (d. 1559) of Penrice and Oxwich purchased Margam Abbey from the Crown. The family's connection with the Talbots of Wiltshire was established when John Talbot of Lacock Abbey married Mary Mansel, daughter of Thomas Mansel (d. 1723), the first baron Mansel. The manor of St Hilary in Cowbridge, Glamorgan originates from the sixteenth century. It became part of the Traherne estate during the nineteenth century and was also the residence of Sir Thomas Mansel Franklen (d. 1928), antiquary and clerk of the peace for Glamorgan.
