"XI. HUMPHREY AP HUGH, of LLwyn du, in the township of Llwyngwrill, parish of Llangelynin, Talybont, Merionethshire, was born circa 1600-1603. He is named as a party to the deed of marriage settlement made at the time of the marriage of his daughter Anne to Ellis Rees, and dated 1 January 1649, wherein he is described as: 'Humffrey ap Hugh of Llwyngwril in the sayd Com. of Merioneth, gentleman.' [see footnote 3, p. 46] He was living at Llwyn du 1662 [according to the Diary of Richard Davies, of Welshpoole, the Quaker], but died in or before 1664 [according to deeds relative to Quaker Burial Ground at Llwyn du], having been a Justice of the Peace for his county.

"Humphrey ap Hugh married, circa 1624-1625, Elizabeth, daughter of John Powell (otherwise called John ap Howell G˘ch), of Gadfa, a large farm (then considered quite a good estate), in the township of Rhiwargor, in the parish of Llanwddyn, Montgomeryshire. John ap Howell was taxed as a land owner in Llanwddyn, in a Lay Subsidy of 39 Elizabeth, 1596-7 [according to the Subsidy Rolls for Montgomeryshire], and was buried at Llanwddyn Parish Church, 24 July, 1636. He was the son of Howell G˘ch, of Gadfa, ap Meredith ap Bedo ap Jenkin, of Caer Einion [see footnote 3, p. 47], and he married Sibill, daughter (seventh child) of Hugh Gwyn, Esquire, of Peniarth, Caernarvonshire, by Jane, daughter of Owen ap Hugh, of Bodeon, Anglesey [see footnote 5, p. 47], and sister unto Sir Hugh Owen, Barrister-at-Law and Recorder of Caermarthen, ancestor to the Owens, Baronets, of Orielton, Pembrokeshire. Hugh Gwyn [see footnote 6, p. 47] was High Sheriff of Caernarvonshire from 2 December 1599-1600, and was commissioned one of the Justices of the Peace for that county, 11 May, 1611.

"Owen ap Hugh, of Bodeon, Anglesey, was High Sheriff of Anglesey, 30 November, 1562-63, 1579-80 (30 November), and died 1613. His second wife, mother of Jane, who married Hugh Gwyn, was Sibill, youngest daughter of Sir William Griffith, Knt., of Penrhyn, Caernarvonshire, Chamberlain of North Wales, by his second wife, Jane, daughter of John Puleston, of Bers and Havod y Wern.

"Issue:
1. ANNE, bapt._____, m. 1649-50 ELLIS AP REES [see footnote 2, p. 48], of Bryn Mawr, D˘lgelly, gentleman, and had: ROWLAND ELLIS.
2. Hugh, bapt. in Llangelynin Church, 7 April, 1628; bur 22 May, 1628.
3. Owen, bapt. in Llangelynin Church, 13 April, 1629; of whom presently [see footnote 3, p. 48].
4. Catherine, bapt. in Llangelynin Church, 15 November 1631; bur. 29 November, 1631.
5. John, bapt. in Llangelynin Church, 16 November, 1632; m. Joan, sister of one Richard Humphrey. They both died in Pennsylvania.
6. Samuel, bapt. in Llangelynin Church, 22 January 1635 [see footnote 4, p. 48]
7. ______, dau., bapt.________.
8. ______, dau., bapt.________."

Footnote 3, p. 46:
"This Indenture is now owned by a descendant, Edward Griffith, Esq., of Springfield, D˘lgelly, Merionethshire, Wales. It is dated 1 January, 1649, the parties thereto being Rees Lewis ap John Griffith, of Dyffrydan, in the County of Merioneth, gentleman; Humffrey ap Hugh, of Llwyngwrill, in said county, gentleman; Richard Nanney, of Llwyngwrill, and David Ellis, of Gwanas, gentlemen. It recites that a marriage is intended between Anne, one of the daughters of said Humffrey ap Hugh, and Ellis Rees, second son of said Rees Lewis. Richard Nanney and David Ellis are Trustees. It was witnessed 21 January, 1649, by John ap William ap Humphrey, David John Hugh, Griffith ap Rees Lewis, Tudor Vaughan and John ap Hugh. Rowland Ellis, who compiled the pedigree of 1697, was the only issue of this marriage."

Footnote 5, p. 47:
"The MS. Pedigree of Rowland Ellis, by mistake, makes her daughter instead of sister of Sir Hugh Owen. She was daughter of Owen ap Hugh, as above. Dwnn II, 199, 205."

Footnote 6, p. 47:
"Eleanor, or Ellen, another daughter of Hugh Gwyn, married Rev. Richard Nanney, Rector of Llangelynin and Vicar of Towyn. She was living 16 June, 1646, in Llwyngwrill, and her son was named Richard Nanney."

Footnote 2, p. 48:
"See Deed of Marriage Settlement, 1 January, 1649 (1649-50), cited supra. Their only child, Rowland Ellis, was born 1650, and died in Pennsylvania; he compiled the pedigree of 1697, which is in his own handwriting."

Footnote 3, p. 48:
"Owen Humphrey, second son and heir of Humphrey ap Hugh, inherited Llwyn du. He married Margaret, daughter of ______, and had, among other issue, some of whom removed to Pennsylvania, a daughter, Rebecca, who married, 1678, Robert Owen, of Fron G˘ch, near Bala, in the Com˘t of Penllyn, Merionethshire. Robert and Rebecca Owen removed to Pennsylvania in 1690 and settled in Merion Township, where they died 1697, leaving besides daughters, male issue as follows: Evan Owen, Provincial Councillor, Judge of Court of Common Pleas, etc.; Owen Owen, High Sheriff of Philadelphia County and Coroner; John Owen, High Sheriff of the County of Chester, Member of Assembly and Trustee of the Loan Office; and Robert Owen, who married Susanna, daughter of William Hudson, Mayor of Philadelphia. The second Robert Owen's daughter, Hannah, married, first, John Ogden, by whom she had a son, William Ogden, who left issue, and secondly, Joseph Wharton, of Walnut Grove, by whom she had, besides other children, Robert Wharton, Mayor of Philadelphia, Captain of First Troop Philadelphia City Cavalry."

Footnote 4, p. 48:
"Samuel Humphrey, a celebrated Quaker, died in Merionethshire, but his widow, Elizabeth, daughter of Rees Hugh, with their children, removed to Pennsylvania, 1683. The children of Samuel Humphrey took the surname of 'Humphreys,' which they have since retained. From Samuel Humphrey descended Joshua Humphreys, Naval Constructor, called the Father of the American Navy, and the late General Humphreys, of Pennsylvania, distinguished in the War of the Rebellion, and whose son is now an officer in the United States Army."
