An exhibition held at Llanerchaeron Mansion (National Trust property) shows the impact women had on the estate, including a daughter of the Powell’s of Nanteos.
Colonel William Lewis of Llanerchaeron married Corbetta Williama Powell (1757-1831) in 1786, daughter of Reverend William Powell (1705-1780) of Nanteos. It is said it was her dowry that paid for the mansion to be built (that stands today) and was commissioned by the architect John Nash.
