Ancestry of J. P. Morgan

He was descended in one line from my own direct ancestors, Prince Tewdwr Mawr and Prince Bleddyn ap Maenarch and in two other lines from my direct ancestors the Havards. His ancestor Miles Morgan (1615 – 1699) emigrated to the States from Llandaff. In the crash of 1929 the House of Morgan did something to alleviate the trouble, but it was too late. In some footage he can apparently be seen standing in a window looking at the crowds on Wall Street. His ancestor Owain Ddu ap Gwilym (born 1428) married Sybil Havard. His ancestor Hywel Fychan ap Hywel (born 1298) married Joan Havard (born 1300). He wanted to buy all the shipping lines, White Star, Cunard and so on and was a typical capitalist of his times.
