  • There are a number of interesting legends relating to Llanrumney Hall. One unlikely tale concerns the Welsh Prince, Llywelyn ap Gruffydd, who was slain at Builth Wells in 1282. Supposedly, his head was presented to Edward I at Conway but the rest of the body was brought by monks to Llanrumney and interred in a stone coffin. The story has never been confirmed, despite claims that the coffin was discovered within the thicker walls of the house in the early 19th century. There have also been reports from some quarters that the headless body of Llywelyn has appeared as a ghost.

    Much more plausible is the belief that Sir Henry Morgan, who became the most famous pirate to terrorise the Spanish Main, was born at Llanrumney Hall about 1635. Details of his early life are somewhat shadowy but, after leaving Llanrumney, Morgan joined a ship bound for Barbados. There he was sold as an indentured servant and, after serving his time, found congenial company with a band of buccaneers in Jamaica.


    In 1668 he became their leader and three years later he carried out his most daring exploit, when he captured Panama and broke Spanish power in the Caribbean. Morgan was a brave and intrepid leader but he was also cruel and treacherous. He even cheated his men out of their share of the booty taken from Panama. Morgan’s piratical deeds came to an end in 1672, when he was arrested and sent back to England for trial.

    However there had been an ambivalent attitude towards privateering since Elizabethan times and the famous diarist, John Evelyn, expressed the views of many in his comments on the sacking of Panama: “Such an action had not been done since the famous Drake”. Morgan certainly convinced Charles II of his worth and, not only did he return to Jamaica as its Deputy Governor, but was also given a knighthood. Ironically he now tried to stamp out piracy in the Caribbean and died a wealthy man in 1688. One of the Jamaican properties left by Henry Morgan to his wife was named “Llanrumney”.
