Site under reconstruction

What’s New?


Welcome to this site about some Jones, Morgan and related 

families from Banwen, 

Coelbren and 


These tiny villages are at the top of the Dulais and Neath Valleys on the 

border of Breconshire 

and Glamorganshire, 

South Wales.

We tell the stories of the people and places through historical and geographical 

contexts since the mid 

eighteenth century.
