CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The manor of Gogarth near Llandudno, Caernarfonshire, was owned by the Diocese of Bangor. The estate was fully exploited in terms of mineral extraction and leases to private landowners, including the Mostyn family in the seventeenth century. Several plots of the manorial land were leased or sold by the Church in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries for building developments in Llandudno. The remainder of manor of Gogarth was transferred to the University of Wales in 1945. The link between Basil Ludlow Thorne and Gogarth is not known.
