Footnotes

  • Catherine and Janet Nanney were the twin daughters of Colonel Hugh Nanney (1669-1701), 17th Lord of Nannau and his wife Catherine of Cors-y-gedol (d.1733). Hugh Nanney was MP for Merioneth (1695-1701), High Sheriff, Vice-Admiral of North Wales, three times Knight of the Shire and Colonel of a Regiment of Militia, which he had raised himself. Janet, the heiress to the Nannau estates married Robert Vaughan of Hengwrt in 1719 by whom she had seven children. Catherine married William Vaughan (b.1707) in 1732 by whom she had one daughter, Anne. This was the last of a series of marriages between the Nanneys and Vaughans, the two most influential families in Meirioneth. A portrait by James Fellowes dated 1751 that is thought to depict Catherine is in the National Museum Wales.
