HENRY MORGAN OF THE TREDEGAR MORGANS:
“Perhaps best known Morgan Family were in residence at Tredegar House, near Newport, Gwent in 1402. Throughout centuries well-kept family records indicate connections with most British land-owning families. The Morgans of Tredegar were followers of Queen Elizabeth I.
On 17 July 1645, Charles I came to Tredegar House as a guest of Morgans.
The 18th and 19th centuries saw great changes in Wales from an agrarian to an Industrial economy. The iron and coal discoveries in Glamorgan and Monmouthshire changed scenery of country…
The turn of century found Tredegar site of great parties. These and death duties caused decline of Morgans of Tredegar. After World War II, estate was sold to a religious order and in 1970's, County of Newport took estate over.
King Charles I stayed in house in 1645 before his execution in 1649, and County of Monmouthshire (now Gwent) and town of Newport owe much to development by successive Morgans. Included must be famous Captain Henry Morgan, twice Governor of Jamaica in 17th century.” (2)
Though they claim Henry Morgan was Governor of Jamaica there are other places where I find he took job his uncle had before him. Clearly this was a well-heeled family long before Sir Henry went off to murderously deceive his own men and practice his debauched and murderous mania.
