CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: The original residence of the Brigstocke family in Wales was Llechdwnni, in the parish of Llandefaelog, Carmarthenshire. The Llechdwnni estate was sold by Morris Bowen to John Brigstocke (1604-1640). The Clygan estate, in the parish of Llandefaelog, was devised to William Brigstocke in 1672 by his grandfather, William Nicholson, Bishop of Gloucester. The great-grandson of John Brigstocke, William Brigstocke (1686-1725), acquired the Blaen-pant estate in the parish of Llandygwydd, Cardiganshire, through his marriage to Elizabeth, daughter and sole heir of William Jenkins of Blaen-pant and Carrog, Cardiganshire. Their son, William Brigstocke (1708-1751) of Blaen-pant and Llechdwnni, married Mary, heiress of Francis Lloyd of Glyn, Carmarthenshire, in 1739. Owen's son was William Owen Brigstocke (1761-1831), of Blaenpant, Llechdwnni and Gellidywyll. He inherited the Gellidywyll estate in Cenarth, Carmarthenshire, in 1795 when Captain Thomas Lewes left the estate to him, his nearest blood relative. Gellidywyll remained a seat of the family until the latter part of the nineteenth century, when it was sold to the Earl of Cawdor. William Owen Brigstocke (1784-1861), son of William Owen Brigstocke, died without issue, and the estate passed to his nephew, another William Owen Brigstocke (1831-1900) of Blaenpant.
