The same family held the estate until the 18th century, when John Jones (alive 1770-1788) held the Pen y Bryn estate, then comprising property in the townships of Cristionydd Cynrig and Dinhinlle Uchaf, as well as property in the township of Penley, Flintshire, left to him by his kinsman, Roger Hanmer of Maes Gwaelod.

Their son, John Maddock Jones (dsp) dissipated and sold all the estates of his father and mother, excepting only the Penley property and a tenement in Pen y Bryn that was entailed on William Maddocks Williams, his nephew.
