Dates of existence


The Wynne family were established at Bodewryd by, at the latest, the fifteenth century. An early representative of the family, Gruffudd, married Angharad, daughter of Hwlkin ap Dafydd ap Ifan Wyddel of Bodowyr. The Boderwyd estate descended in the male line until Edward Wynne (d. 1755), Chancellor of Hereford. He married Ann, daughter and heiress of John Lloyd of Plas Einion, Denbighshire, but died without issue and the estate passed to Ann, his younger sister. She married Robert Owen of Penrhos Isa, Holyhead. The estate then passed to their grand-child Margaret Owen (1742-1816), heiress of Penrhos and Bodewryd. She married Sir John Thomas Stanley, Bart., of Alderley Park, Cheshire. Their son, Sir John Thomas Stanley (1760-1850) was created 1st Baron Stanley of Alderley in 1839. He was succeeded by his son Edward John Stanley, 2nd Bart (1807-1869) and by Henry Edward John Stanley, 3rd Bart (1827-1903).
