 PEOPLE & PLACES

The Arthur family



Arthur is not a particularly common name, so it is perhaps not a surprise that the two Mary Arthurs who married Glascoed farmers (that I am aware of) were actually related. For the time being, I think I’ll just concentrate on these two for bio pages.


They both came from Trostrey, Monmouthshire.


1) Mary Arthur c.1764-1835 - later Jenkins of Upper Trostrey farm.


Mary was the daughter of a William and Mary (nee George) Arthur from Trostrey. She married the marvellously named Hercules Jenkins of Upper Trostrey farm, Glascoed. They were probably the most prosperous and well-connected of the Glascoed farmers.

2) Mary Arthur (c.1806-1896) - later Morgan of Hill Farm.


This Mary was the niece of Mary Arthur #1 (above). She married John Morgan of Hill Farm.
