Contents

Birth

about 1565 in Monmouthshire, England[1]
1570 in Llwyngwair, Pembroke, Wales[2]
Lewis ap Richard (later Prichard), was the son of Richard Lewis. He married Catherine Morgan, "daughter of Watkin Morgan, gentleman of Triley and Gwenllian Powell (ap Howell)."[3]

Death

Found in St. Teilo's Register as Lewis "Prichard" buried on 4 May 1616.
St. Teilo's Register starts in 1591 so the birth record for Lewis was not found, nor are the records for earlier generations. (Moses)

  • Llantilio Pertholey, Monmouthshire, Wales
  • Llantilio Peertholey Parish, Monmouth, Wales[4]
  • Abergavenny, Llantilio Pertholy, Monmouthshore, Wales[5]

Catherine was buried Sept. 29, 1615, and Lewis was buried May 4, 1616 - both in the churchyard of St Telio's of the Bright Bush Church in Llantilio Pertholy.[3]

Their son John "was raised by his Uncle Edward."[3] Edward Lewis was executor of his father's 1627 will, in which Richard Lewis names John his grandson.[6]

Mark Lewis interprets Richard's will as possibly naming additional children of Lewis Prichard

Estimated Date

There is no basis given for 1565 birth. A consistent problem with Welsh genealogies is that few dates are included. The dates for this family need work:
  • his father Richard died in 1627 or 1628, but this timeline has Richard's parents "both born around 1500".
However, Richard Lewis born before 1537 in the area of Llangattock Crickhowell. . . . on the River Usk, between the towns of Brecon thirteen miles to the North and Abergavenny six miles to the South. It is in the present-day Brecon Beacons National Park."[8]
  • Lewis is said to have died young, but 1565-1616 is not young for the time.
  • Lewis and Catherine's son John is said to have immigrated to America. That immigrant ancestor is also given the birth year of 1592 (Moses), which cannot be correct for a son orphaned in 1616 and then "raised by his Uncle Edward".[3]
  • John was probably born after 1600, considering that his "Uncle Edward" (presumably Lewis's brother) was his guardian, and probably was much younger, as Edward is said to have raised him. Although one source said John inherited the Lewis Estates,[9] Richard's will in 1627 leaves him "4 sheep, 4 lambs, and a filly".[10]
Locations:
"Triley, home of the Morgans, was an ancient estate on the slope of Deri Mountain just North of Abergavenny and Llantilio Portholey. Llantilio Pertholy is a small community two kilometers Northeast of Abergavenny, on the road to Hereford, England. The Morgan home on the estate was named Ty-Hir (long house)."[3]
St Teilos: Watkin Morgan was buried at St Teilos 18 March 1592/93. His wife Gwenllian was buried there 24 July 1596. "(GM p31 The Church of St.Teilo, historically known as St. Teilo in the Bright Bush, is the heart of the Parish of Llantillo Pertholey. It was founded in the sixth century. The original church is gone, but it was rebuilt in the 13th century. After a fire in 1974, it was restored. Fortunately for us, many church records are preserved and we can learn information about our early family from them."[3]
Llangattock Crickhowell: "Richard Lewis born before 1537 in the area of Llangattock Crickhowell. . . . on the River Usk, between the towns of Brecon thirteen miles to the North and Abergavenny six miles to the South. It is in the present-day Brecon Beacons National Park."[11]

Ap Richard-1 and Ap Richard-16 appear to represent the same person because: Hi! These profiles are for the same person. Ap Richard-1 uses cap "A" in ap, and it should be lowercase (as in ap Richard-16). Please merge. Thanks!

oh. Yup. "ap" and "ab" mean "son of". "ab" is like "an" - used in front of a vowel sound. "ferch" is "daughter of" (not "verch" - that's the English spelling of the Welsh "ferch" - see #7 in table here).

Cool site, from Cymru Project Resources, is this one (and this one).

maybe that's why he decided to go with "Prichard" in his lifetime (from ap Richard) instead of surname Lewis like everyone else. (It also explains why my ancestors didn't bat an eye when choosing Noland as the given name for a son of Mr & Mrs Noland.)

I found the "Moses" reference (see top of Lewis-763), which led to the other sons & parents of Richard Lewis. But given naming guidlines, I think he should be ap Richard (LNAB) & then Prichard for "Current Last Name" (CLN). I'll go ahead and change the name for the duplicate profile I'm managing.

Checking on Welsh naming conventions (Cymru project page), guideline that seems to apply: "If the name was adopted AFTER birth, use the appropriate Welsh name in the LNAB and the European or British name in the CLN." So... ap Richard for Last Name at Birth (LNAB) & Prichard for "Current Last Name" (CLN). If no objections, I'll "make it so."

Okay, so 'ap' means son of ... Actually he should be Lewis Lewis?
