Elizabeth Morgan

02 May - 02 November 2019

Elizabeth Morgan, a country squire’s wife who lived at Henblas on Anglesey in the 18th century has left behind a remarkable legacy. She meticulously recorded her garden activities in a diary from 1754-1772 which is now housed at the archives of Bangor University, along with her recipe book and household accounts. Her diary records the plants she grew, where they came from and how they were grown. She was also very interested in keeping up with the latest trends in garden design. The drifts of snowdrops in the woodland at Henblas that can be seen in winter are a lasting reminder of Elizabeth Morgan’s plantings.
