  Research Notes:

According to Lewis Dwnn, Margaret Vaughan was buried in Dolgellau on 25 Oct 1646, after having married twice, and having produced a daughter by her second marriage who was of age by 1676. The entry from the Dolgellau Parish Register for burials, dated 31 May 1688 reads:

Margarett Vaughan was buried in linnen & the forfeiture due by the Act of Parliament was paid by the informer Robert Vaughan Gent. to the hands of John Hanf----- & John Gryffith church wardens of the parish of Dolgelley to the use of the poor of the said parish. It is more likely that the 1646 burial refers to Margaret's grandmother, Margaret widow of Howell Vaughan.

Margaret married Willam Pryce, Rector of Dolgelley, on an unknown date.
