Re: Marine Hotel, Southerndown

In response to a 2011 inquiry from a Terry Morgan about the Marine Hotel, you mentioned his ancestor who moved into the hotel in 1853. That “ancestor” was either proprietor Samuel Howells—who was my great-great-grandfather—or one of his children). I have a lot of information about Samuel, the design and building of the Marine Hotel, his ancestors, and his descendants (one of which owned Pen-y-lan Farm in St Brides Major before emigrating to America). I would like to discuss with Terry Morgan and/or you if there is interest. Phil Howell, Marietta GA, USA.
