Sylvanus Morgan pedigree book

  • NLW MS 22999E.
  • File
  • [mid-17cent.]

Pedigree book, [mid 17 cent.], each page consisting of a printed arrangement of fifteen empty roundels and eight shields to accommodate four generations, together with a larger shield for an achievement; partially used to enter the Welsh ancestry of King James I, based on George Owen Harry, The Genealogy of ... James ... King of great Brittayne ... (London, 1604) (see p. 38). Apparently in the hand of Sylvanus Morgan (1620-1693) whose pedigree appears on p. 1, although a note by J. E. Oldfield (inside front cover) suggests the scribe to have been Peter Vaughan, sometime of Jesus College, Oxford.

Morgan, Sylvanus, 1620-1693.
