John Arthur Morgan


John Arthur Morgan was the eldest son of John and Mary Morgan of Hill Farm, Glascoed. He was born in approx 1833 and was christened at Monkswood parish church on 20th February 1833.


He is mentioned on the 1841, 1851 and 1861 censuses as living at home. He was unmarried at all of these censuses. His occupation was unsurprisingly, “Farmer’s son”. The only other place that I have found him, to date is on his sister, Anne Elizabeth’s marriage certificate - he was the first witness. I assume that since his father had recently died, John would have been the brother who was asked to give his sister’s hand in marriage to her new husband, Alexander Wynter Blyth (a medical student).
