Families covered: Morgan of Golden Grove (Gwylgre)

Edward Morgan (d 24.02.1611, of the Middle Temple)
m. Catherine Davies (dau of John Davies of Gwysanau (Gwysaney), son of Dafydd ap Gruffydd)
1. Edward Morgan of Weppra, Llaneurgain (bur 20.02.1640-1)
  m. (sp) Ann Conwy (dau of John Conwy of Bodrhyddan)
Assuming that Griffith was correct, BLG1886 confused the 2 generations of Edwards, showing the Edward who married Catherine Davies as father of Edward (d 25.02.1611, m. Anne Conway) father of the following Robert. We follow Griffith.
2. Robert Morgan of Gwylgre aka Golden Grove (d 20.09.1641)
  m. Catherine Jones (dau of Sir William Jones of Castell-y-march)

i. Edward Morgan of Golden Grove (d Winnington Bridge 19.08.1659)
  m. Elizabeth White (dau of Thomas White)
  a. Edward Morgan of Golden Grove (d 1682)
  Griffith & BLG1886 both identify Edward's wife as Ursula, daughter of Sir Henry Bunbury, Bart of Stanney. We suspect that she was 2 generations earlier.
