Families covered: Morgan of Exeter, Morgan of Kingsthorp, Morgan of Kinnersley Castle, Morgan of Langattock
[The sections below were first launched on 3 different Temporary pages. They were moved here after review led to acceptance that there was little chance of our making a significant improvement to them in the near future and that the page overall was 'good enough' to be put into the main database. As far as we are aware, there was no close connection between these families. They share the page for our convenience.]

This family is thought to be connected to the Morgans of Tredegar.
Lewis Morgan of Langattock, Monmouthshire
1. Sir Thomas Morgan, 1st Bart of Langattock, Governor of Jersey (b c1607, d 13.04.1679, Major General)
  TCB reports that Sir Thomas "is said, in the Dict. Nat. Biog. to be "second son of Robert Morgan, of Llahrymny, "whose eldest son, Sir Henry Morgan (the "Buccaneer"), was born about 1635. As, however, he served in the "thirty years war", which ended in 1648 (when Henry, therein called his eldest brother, was but thirteen) it is evident that this affiliation (which conradicts the account in Wotton's Baronetage) is a mistake."
m. (c1650) Delariviere Cholmondeley (d c1683, dau of Richard Cholmondeley of Brame Hall in Spowford)
  A. Sir John Morgan of Kinnersley Castle (Herefordshire), 2nd Bart, Governor of Chester (b c1650, d by 02.1692/3, Colonel)
  m. Hester Price (dau/coheir of James Price of Pilleth)
  i. Sir Thomas Morgan of Kinnersley Castle, 3rd Bart (d 04.12.1716)
  m. (by 1711) Anne Roydhouse (d by 1764, dau/heir of John Roydhouse of St. Martin's-in-in-the-fields)
  a. Sir John Morgan of Kinnersley Castle, 3rd Bart (b 11.07.1710, dsp 29.04.1767)
  m. (17.12.1750) _ Jacobsen (dau of Sir Jacob Jacobson)
  ii. Hester Morgan
  m. John Walsham of Knill Court (d 1734)
  iii. Delariviere Morgan (d unm)
  iv. Annaretta Morgan
  m. Thomas Clutton of Pensax
  B. Delarivers Morgan (d 09.1687) apparently of this generation
  m1. Thomas Lewis of St. Pierre
  m2. Thomas Williams of Usk
  C.+ other issue - Cholmley (b 1654-5, a 1672), 7 other sons
2. Henry Morgan
  BEB1841 suggests that Sir Thomas had a brother Henry who was the famous Sir Henry Morgan, the buccaneer who became Governor of Jamaica. The dates make that look very unlikely. Of Sir Henry (b c1635, bur 26.08.1688), BHO ("Sir Henry Morgan") reports: "Numerous attempts have been made to identify the parents of Henry Morgan, all based on the assumption that he was related to the Morgans of Tredegar. These attempts have all proved unsatisfactory." Note that Sir Henry is reported above to have been eldest son of Robert Morgan, of Llahrymny. We presume that that Robert was descended from Harry Morgan of Llanrumney, younger brother of Thomas Morgan of Machem & Tredegar.
