According to Maj . Francis Jones the house was midway between the Town Hall and Cliff
Chapel and was pulled down in 1859. An inventory of her goods made after her death show
that the house had eight principal rooms, eleven for servants, domestic quarters, seven
outbuildings which included a stable for five horses.
There is a Manuscript of 1753 by John Player called an "Account of a journey through
Wales" in which he records his visit to the house.

Some of you will know of the charity which Madam Bevan ran in support
of the Welsh Circulating schools.
After her death in 1779 her niece and nephew tried to prevent her bequests being used to
support these schools. This resulted in a very long Chancery case which found in favour of
her charitable bequests.
At her death she lived in a 27 roomed house at Laugharne. I wondered if this house still
stands, or if its site is known.
Is there a memorial to her at Laugharne?
