Morgan or David Jones

 

 

The first mention I seem to have is in 1817, when Morgan Jones (b. Ystradfellte, 1796) and his wife of 10 months, Elizabeth Morgan, had their first child, Margaret, at Llysnini on 7 Aug 1819. I note on your site that David Jones of Ystradfellte had bought the farm in 1807 (I didn't know that before) and I would guess he gave it to Morgan when the latter got married.
