  Research Notes:

From Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry, p. 31:

"The title papers to this property [Tythyn Bryn Mawr in Merionethshire] are now in possession of Edward Griffith, Esq., of Springfield, near Dôlgelly, a descendant of Ann, eldest daughter of Rowland Ellis by his first wife. Amongst these old documents is the original marriage contract and settlement made upon the marriage of Ellis Price [Ellis ap Rees] and Anne Humphrey, the parents of Rowland Ellis, in 1649. The parties to this settlement were: Humphrey (Humffrey) ap Hugh, of Llwyngwril, gentleman, father of Anne Humphrey, Rees Lewis ap John Griffith, of Dyffrydan, gentleman, father of Ellis Price, who was his second son, and Richard Nanney, of Llwyngwril, and David Ellis, of Gwanas, gentlemen, who were to act as trustees. Richard Nanney was cousin to Anne, his father, the Rector of Llangelynin having married one of the daughters of Hugh Gwyn, of Peniarth. David Ellis was brother-in-law to Rees Lewis, the latter having married his sister Catherine.

"The witnesses to this document were: John ap William ap Humffrey, David John Hugh, Griffith ap Rees Lewis, Edward Vaughn and John ap Hugh. Rowland Ellis, born in 1650, was the only child of Ellis Price (alias ap Rees) and Anne Humphrey, and therefore inherited Bryn Mawr under this settlement and continued to live there until his permanent removal to Pennsylvania in 1696; when he sold the place to Lewis Owen, of Tyddyn y Garreg, his kinsman, to whom he was indebted."
