Dates of existence


In 1660 Daniel Williams, son of the Rev. John Williams (1580-1657), a descendant of the Williams family of Abercamlais, Breconshire, built the Penybont mansion and founded the Penpont branch of the family. The estate then descended in the male line, each heir being called Penry. The last male heir was Penry Boleyne Williams who died unmarried in 1893. According to the 1873 return of owners of land, Penry Williams of Penpont owned an estimated 7,010 acres, all in Breconshire, with an estimated annual rental of £4,370.
