The Site of TreGunter (Gunterston)

This is listed by CADW, just west of Talgarth, although the main house has been completely demolished. Only the home farm still exists. It is only a few miles from Llanigon, Cleirwy and Hay on Wye in Powys. So it is overwhelmingly probable that my great great great great great grandmother, Elizabeth Gunter (attached) was descended from the ancient Gunter line, going back to Sir Peter Gunter, who married Jane Awbrey, daughter of Sir Reginald Awbrey and Isabella de Clare, daughter of Richard Fitz Gilbert de Clare (Strongbow)descended from Richard 1st Duke of Normandy. The ancient Gunter lines were concentrated in this small area until about 1600 – 1700, when they scattered all over the world. My direct Evans line probably goes back several thousand years (ancient British line).
