Evan Frederic Morgan

Viscount Tredegar

The Final Affairs

Financial and Carnal

NEW BOOK FROM WILLIAM CROSS

 In the 1940s combating financial pressures and terminal cancer, Evan, Viscount Tredegar, closed down the family seat of Tredegar House, Newport, South Wales, whilst he considered his options, a third marriage (into wealth ) being one solution, Irish citizenship another.

Evan had always enjoyed a larger than life public profile and with it a coveted place in Society, spending money freely. But now he was an outcast. His personal affairs were in tatters, he was forced to sell off heirlooms and cold-shoulder attempts to sign over the family Estate to his cousin, John, whom he detested. 

Despite the dilemmas Evan continued to travel and pleasure seek in his favorite overseas haunts but he was forced to spend his dying weeks in Britain in hospital and at Honeywood House his mother’s home in Surrey where she lay in a doomed state of senility. In the decade following Evan’s death the Inland Revenue struggled to unravel his taxation whilst accountants tracked down the details of his realizable assets. 

His Executors sought meanwhile to destroy compromising documents to minimize the damaging legacy of Evan’s homosexual life style. Evan’s Executors and heir were also charged with providing for the continuance of a wealth base within the Tredegar Settled Lands and for finding a solution to settle death duties, surtax arrears and importantly pay the accounts of a small army of trade creditors in Newport and Dorking, in order to preserve the Morgan family’s good name.  

In this new book, William Cross    ( author of three other books on the Morgan family of Tredegar House ) draws on unpublished sources from several Archives. 

Cross pulls together many new anecdotes on Evan and reveals the greater tragedy of a large Estate in Wales  and England brought down after hundreds of years.
