      Other records referred to in the compilation of this article were, deed to
      him for his land in Pennsylvania, he being described therein as
      "of Brin Mawr, in the County of Merioneth, gentleman"; assignment, in
      trust, dated after 1717, he being then of Plymouth, Pennsylvania,
      gentleman, reciting transactions with Humphrey Owen, of Llwyndu (in
      Llwyngrill), and Lewis Owen, of Tyddyn y Garreg, concerning certain loans
      on bonds.
      There are also several testimonials of him by Friends who knew him both in
      his native country and in Pennsylvania. Some of these are embodied in the
      sketch of his life which we reprint in this article. The old pedigree
      above described having been found to agree in the essential points with
      the Herald's, visitations made out 1585-1601, and with parish registers
      and other documents remaining in Wales, it is a comparatively easy task
      for one versed in Welsh genealogy to give a detailed account of the
      ancestry of Rowland Ellis, who, as we have seen, was the son of Ellis
      Price, son of Rees ap Lewis ap John Griffith, of Nannau.
      Tytbyn Bryn Mawr, in Merionethshire, appears to have anciently formed a
      part of the Nannau Estate, which was the earlhurch.  The family from
      whence Rowland Ellis sprang was of princely lineage, descending in the
      direct male line from Bleddyn, the son of Cynfyn, who was Prince of Powys,
      and was so imprudent as to get himself murdered by the amiable "gentlemen
      of Ystrad Tywy" in the year 1702. This Prince, in defiance to the advice
      of his countrymen, married Isabel, daughter of Picot de Say, a Norman
      Knight, and had by her a son called Cadwgan, " the renowned Briton," who,
      besides being Lord of Ystrad Tywy in Cardigan, was also Lord of Nannau, in
      Merionethshire.  Cadwgan also fell by the dagger of the assassin, and was
      succeeded, as Lord of Nannau, by a long line of notable descendants.
      As we will give particulars concerning each generation in the chart
      pedigree on another page of this article, it is only necessary here to
      mention a few of the most prominent members of this old family.
      One of these early Lords of Nannau was Meuric ap Ynyr Vychan, who was
      living in the 21st year of Edw. III (I347-8). In ths the tomb of this
      Lord. It is a sepulchral effigy in mail and plate armor, having a shield
      on his breast, on which is carved a lion, and the stone bears this
      inscription : "Hic Jacet Meuric Filius Ynyr Vachan.'' The effigy formerly
      stood in the aisle; but was afterward set in the wall under a memorial
      window of more recent date. Meuric(4) was succeeded by his son Meuric
      Lloyd, who was father to Howell, of Nannau. commonly called Howell Sele.
      (4)The father of this Meuric (Ynyr Vychan), appears to have been a very violent man even for the age in which he lived. In the
      Parliament of 15 and 16 Edward II (1322-3) he and others were charged with attacking, on the next Wednesday after the
      feast of St. Gregory, in the 15th of that king, the Castle of John de Grey, of Ruthen, setting fire to the town and killing two men.
      possessions of Rowland Ellis's ancestors, many of whom lie buried in D

      JOHN EVANS(1), of Gwynedd, eldest son of Cadwalader, descended from Trahairn Goch, of Llyn, born in Denbighshire,
      Wales, 1689, died at Gwynedd, 9th mo. 23, 1756, married ELEANOR, daughter of Rowland Ellis, of Merion, at Merion
      Meeting-house, 4th mo. 8, 1715. ELEANOR, born at Bryn Mawr, Merionethshire, Wales, 1685, died 4th mo. 29, 1769.
      JOHN was a celebrated preacher among Friends. His will, dated 9th mo. 16, 1756, was proved June 22, 1757. He leaves to
      his daughter, Jane Hubbs, a life interest with remainder to her children, in a lot of 2 1/2 acres, "part of the tract of 100 acres
      which I hold, to be laid out for her the west side of Montgomery road, adjoining George Maris's field.'' He gives his daughters,
      Margaret, Ellen, and Elizabeth l0 acres, ''to be divided off the upper end, next Owen Evans's land.'' He mentions his sons
      Rowland and John, and appoints them with
      his son Cadwalader executors.

      : one of the four brothers
      who settled at Gwynedd in 1698. For their genealogy in the direct male line, see Owen Family, another page. Cadwalader
      Evans, who died at Gwynedd, where he lived, near his brothers, Robert and Owen Evans, married in Wales, Ellen, daughter of
      John Morris, of Bryn Gwyn [White Hill], in Denbigbshire. Of the ancestry of her father, John Morris, we know but little, but
      from an old MS. pedigree of the Owen and Evan families, in the handwriting of Cadwalader Evans, third, we ascertain that her
      mother was Eleanor, daughter of Ellis ap William, of Cai Fadog. Her descent was as follows : Cadwgan, Lord of Nannau had
      Madog, who had Einion, of Ciltalgarth (Azure, a bow and arrow, point downward, argent), who had Madog Hyddgam, of
      Ciltalgarth (Kiltalgarth), who Cadwgan, who had Madog, of Ciltalgarth, who had Ievan, surnamed "y Cott" who had Ievan
      Fychan, of Ciltalgarth, who had Madog, who had David, who had Thomas ap David, who had Hugh ap Thomas, of
      Ciltalgarth, who had William ap Hugh, of Ciltalgarth, who had Ellis Williams, of Cai Fadog, who had two daughters : Eleanor,
      who married John Morris, of Bryn Gwyn, and had Ellen, who married Cadwalader Evan ; and Gwen, who married Hugh ap
      Cadwalader, and had Eleanor, who became the wife of Edward Foulke of Gwynedd.

      Children of John and Eleanor :

      1.Cadwalader, b. 1716, d. 1773, m. Jane Owen.
      2.Rowland, b. 1717-8, d. 1789, m. Susanna Foulke.

      4. Jane, b. 1st mo. 30, 1721, m. John Hubbs. She left two sons, John and Charles, and three daughters, Rachel,
      Ellen, and Mary. Ellen m., 1781 , Amos Lewis, of Upper Dublin [son of Ellis Lewis, 2d, and his first wife Mary], and Rachel
      also m., 1785, Amos Lewis.
