This book traces the story of the mansions and the landed gentry families of the Tivyside area in South West Wales. It provides a glimpse into the lifestyle and the homes they occupied from the 17th century to their terminal decline in the first quarter of the 20th century. The lifestyle was not on the scale and lavishness depicted in television series, such as Downton Abbey, but it was for most Tivyside squires and their families a pampered way of life based on comfortable homes and being surrounded by butlers, housekeepers, cooks, footmen and maids. The book is aimed at the general reader who is interested in local history and, in particular, the story of fifty mansions and their families located in the lower Teifi Valley, an area served by the market towns of Cardigan, Newcastle Emlyn and Llandysul.
