William Lysaght ... 
William Royse Lysaght was Chairman of John Lysaght, steel makers, originally in Wolverhampton, but moved lock, stock and barrel to Newport, South Wales. He owned Chepstow Castle, Chepstow Race Course and lived at Castleford, at Chepstow.
The company of John Lysaght still exists in Australia, run by cousins, but ceased in the UK when taken over by Guest Keen and Nettlefold (GKN), and subsequently by British Steel.
He moved the Wolverhampton operation to South Wales, including his workforce for whom he provided new accommodation.
According to "A History of GKN: Volume 2: The Growth of a Business, 1918-1945", By Edgar Jones:
Siblings were Sidney Royse Lysaght (m. Katherine Clarke) and Herbert Royse Lysaght (1862-1940), m. (1892) Ellen Lydiard.

MR. W. R. LYSAGHT
Mr. William Royce Lysaght died at Chepstow yesterday, aged 86. He was a former chairman and managing director of John Lysaght Ltd., iron and steel manufacturers, Newport, Mon., a director of Guest, Keen and Nettlefolds and past president of the Iron and Steel Institute. He claimed he had been a principal in the industry longer than any living person.
A model employer, he declared after 50 years with the firm that there had never been a strike at his works. He was High Sheriff of Monmouthshire in 1915 and honorary Freeman of Newport, and became a C.B.E. in 1918.
He began his career in 1874 and was wont to recall that in those days of 12-hour shifts when wages were paid once a fortnight barrels of beer were kept on tap for the men "in case difficulties had to be contended with."
