of the Parson's Jewel, 1705, a book of instructions on procedure to be adopted by clergymen on presentation to a benefice. On the title page of this book he styles himself ‘vicar de jure of Llhantri-sanct and Chaplain to the Countess Dowager of Peterborough late deceased.’ He was, indeed, presented to Llantrisant, 3 April 1695, by Francis Jones of Pentyrch and Rachel, his wife, but a dispute concerning patronage took place in Chancery and James Harries, presented by the dean and chapter of Gloucester, was in fact instituted, 7 June 1695 (Llandaff Subscription Books, iv), and he remained in undisturbed possession till 1728. It is not certain whether the Walter Morgan included in Foster's Alumni Oxon., the son of Thomas Morgan of Llandilo, who matriculated at Jesus College, Oxford, 30 May 1682, aged 21, is the subject of this article or the person of the same name who was rector of Eglwysilan, 1689-95. Possibly they are one and the same person.
