The Cheshire Observer and General Advertiser – May 14th 1859


It is our painful duty, says the North Wales Chronicle, to announce the death, on the 29th ult, at Storey’s Hotel, Dover-street, London of Sir Robert Williames Vaughan, Bart. of Rhug, Hengwrt and Nannau, in Merionethshire, the third baronet of his very ancient family which has held the domains of Nannau, in direct descent, from Cadwgan, Lord of Nannau, who was slain in 1107, one of the sons of Bleddyn ap Cynvyn, Prince of Powis.

Sir Robert was the only child of Sir Robert Williames Vaughan, the second baronet, who uninterruptedly represented in Parliament the county of Merionethshire for 44 years, by Anna Maria, one of the daughters of Sir Roger Mostyn, of Mostyn, Bart.

The deceased baronet was born June 25th, 1803. In 1835 he married Francis Margaret, eldest daughter of Edward Lloyd, Esq. of Rhagatt, late Chairman of the Quarter Sessions for Merionethshire. Dying without issue the baronetage becomes extinct. The remains were interred on Friday, the 6th inst. in the family vault in Llanfachreth.
