Sir Robert Vaughan, J.P., D.L., K.B.E.
Sir Robert Vaughan, J.P., D.L., K.B.E. (1867-1941) was the eldest son of John Vaughan and Eleanor Ann. He was due to take over the running of Nannau on his 21st Birthday in 1887 (his ‘Coming of Age’). However, his mother decided that her second son John (Major-General John Vaughan (1871-1956)) would be a more suitable choice.
Robert Vaughan (aka ‘Robbie’) lived at Garthmaelan (Garth Maelan) in Dolgellau. He was also referred to as “The Railwayman’s Friend” for his work with the G.W.R.
