: ' FAMOUS HOUSES AND FAMILIES OF WALES'

' Wynnstay and the Wynns '
Glyn Roberts
Today the estates of the Wynns of Wynnstay amount to about 150,000 acres. For generations the family has been a tremendous power throughout North Wales and the Borders particularly in the counties of Denbigh, Montgomery, and Merioneth.
The first baronet was
Sir William Williams , a shrewd Parliamentary lawyer who made his mark in the turbulent days of Charles II and James II. Bv the time of his grand-son, the first Sir Watkin Williams
Wynn, the family fortunes had crown to an extent that enabled him to spend at least £120,000 on electioneering alone, without embarrassing the estates to any noticeable degree. Since his death in 1749 there have been five representatives of the family bearing the same name.
The history of the family forms a commentary on many of the great events and tendencies that have characterised the history of England and Wales. Politics, education, drama literature, agricultural improvements, warfare, fox-hunting-all have absorbed the energies of this great clan.

About this project

This site contains the BBC listings information which the BBC printed in Radio Times between 1923 and 2009. You can search the site for BBC programmes, people, dates and Radio Times editions.

We hope it helps you find information about that long forgotten BBC programme, research a particular person or browse your own involvement with the BBC.

Through the listings, you will also be able to use the Genome search function to find thousands of radio and TV programmes that are already available to view or listen to on the BBC website.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time - not those of today.

To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and 50s, you can navigate by issue.
