Dates of existence


Rhys ab Jenkin was granted lands in Trofarth in Bettws yn Rhos, Denbighshire, in 1574, by Robert Dudley, Earl of Leicester. Rhys' s grandson, Richard Wynne, was the first of the family to adopt the Wynne surname. He was granted a Crown lease of lands in Trofarth in 1593. The Coed Coch estate came into the hands of the Wynne family when the Rev. Richard Wynne married Gaynor, daughter and heiress of John Wynne of Coed Coch, in the parish of Bettws yn Rhos. Their son, John Wynne (d. 1788) is noted as owning Trofarth, Coed Coch and Plas Newydd. John's son, John Lloyd Wynne (1776-1862) married Mary, eldest daughter and co-heir of John Holland of Teirdan in the parish of Llanelidan, Denbighshire. The estate then descended in the male line until the death in World War I of Edward Henry John Wynne (1893-1916) who predeceased his mother, Anne Gwendolyn, who had married secondly in 1896, Lawrence Alan Brodrick, 2nd son of the 8th Viscount Midleton.

According to the 1873 return of owners of land, John Lloyd Wynne, of Coed-Coch owned 10,197 acres in Wales (all in Denbighshire), with an estimated rental of £9,272.
