PRYCE OF GUNLEY.

Peyce, Edwaed Stisted Mostyn, Esq. of
Gunley, co. Montgomery, J. P., cos. Salop and
Montgomery, M.A. Oxon, b. 8 April, 1851 ; m.
7 Aug. 1877, Henrietta Mary, youngest dau. of

I. Hugh Beauclebk Mosttn, b. 1881.

I. V^ra Sybil Elise.

II. Ismay Nesta.

III. Olga Georgina Meddevys,

Mr. Pryce is Lord of the Manor of Gunley.

Xiineagre. — This ancient family having been in possession
of Gunley since 1450, is amongst the oldest established (now
seated) in co. Montgomery, and traces its lineage, through a
proved descent, from Einion ap Seisyllt, first cousin of Owen
Gwynedd, Prince of North Wales, 1137, to the Welsh King
Gwyddno Garanhir, who was Prince of Cantref Gwaelod circa
A.D. 899, that part of AVales comprising co. Cardigan and the
adjoining country. The descent of the Pryces is proved by
authentic pedigrees (including an autograph MS. pedigree by
Lewys Dwnn, taken at his celebrated visitation in the year 1591)
and title deeds in black letter, which are preserved at Gunley.
From Hugh of Gunley, living 1450, may be counted thirteen
direct generations, including the present representative and
possessor. According to the Welsh Triads, a portion of
Gwyddno's territory was inundated by the sea now forming
Cardigan Bay, and part of this bay up to recent times retained
its ancient name of Cantref Gwaelod. His descendant, the
9th in lineal descent, as shown on the pedigree, was

Seissyllt, whose son and successor was

Einion ap Seissyllt, Lord of Merioneth, who held in
capite all the lands between Tyfi and Dulas from Llewelyn
Vawr and Llewelyn Vychan, nephews of Griffith ap Cynan,
Prince of North Wales and Lords of Merioneth.

Owing to differences with the latter, Einion ap Seissyllt
placed himself under the protection of Owen CyfeUiog, Prince
of Powys, and did fealty in respect of his lands. These have

ever since formed part of the district of Powys, and are
noticed in an inquisition taken temp. Edward III., and also
in another, temp. Henry VI., 142S. Einion ap Seissyllt is the
lirjit name which appears on Lewys Dwnn's parchment MS.
(on which document the descent of the Pryce family is carried
lineally through twelve generations to lihys of Gunley, whose
son, Kiehard ap Rhys, of Gunley, was first called "Kichard
Pryce," when surnames were first taken in Wales). By his
wife, Nesta, dau. of Madog, Lord of Nannau, ap Cadwgan ap
Bleddyn, Prince of Powys, Einion had a son and successor,
