Note: Sources conflict on the given name of his wife (Elinor Vaughan currently in WikiTree):

Bartrum, which names her Margaret (see Bartrum: Drymbenog 2(C1) and Gamage 1). Richardson names her Eleanor, "daughter of Roger Vaughan of Tretower, Breconshire, Wales" (see Richardson's Plantagenet Ancestry, p 135; also Eleanor in Richardson's Royal Ancestry (2013)). One site[1] names her Elinor 'Margred'. Dictiontionary of Welsh Biography names her Eleanor: "John Gamage 's son, MORGAN, m. Eleanor, daughter of Sir Roger Vaughan of Tretower" (#DWB).

Also, WikiTree has her mother as Margaret Tuchet (Roger's second wife), which is not supported by sources. Richardson does not name her mother, but she is shown as the daughter of Roger's first wife, Denise, by Bartrum (Drymbenog 2(C1)), Lewis (Eleanor Vaughan), and the Dictionary of Welsh Biography (VAUGHAN family, of Tretower Court).

The dates for Roger's marriages and his children's birth years as currently shown in WikiTree are incompatible with Denise being her mother. More research is needed.


Morgan Gamage was the son of John Gamage and his first wife Margred, daughter of Morgan of Radur and Efa ferch Ieuan Gethin.[2]

Morgan married "Margred f. Sir Roger Vaughan of Tretwr"[3][4] and they had the following children (Bartrum reference in brackets):

  • Margred, m (1) Jenkin Thomas [Godwin 9(D)] (2) James ap Tos. [Turberville (2B)][5]
  • Annes, m Robert ap Wm Raglan [Godwin 9(C)][6]
  • Catrin, m Rheinallt Powel [Godwin 6(B)]
  • Jane, m William ap Thomas [Bawdrep][7]
  • Sir Thomas Gamage ([Gamage 2]), married (1) Margred f. Sir John St. John ([St. John (1)]), (2) Joyce f. Sir Richard Croft, (mistress) daughter of Richard Spernell

"The Gamages were of Roggiet, and became lords of Coety in Newcastle Hundred, in Glamorgan, in 1414, by inheritance from the Turbervilles. St. Michael [is?] Llanfihangel Roggiet; Roggiet is nearby; Nanvacherys is probably Llanvaches, which was held at the survey of Wentwood in 1271 by John Martell, whose dau. and heiress m. Robert de Gamage (Hist.MON, IV, 185)."[8]
