Lewis Pugh Pugh
Pugh was the son of John Evans of Lovesgrove Cardiganshire and his wife Elizabeth Pugh daughter of Lewis Pugh. He was educated at Winchester College and Corpus Christi, Oxford. He was called to the bar at Lincoln's Inn in 1862. In 1868 he changed his name to Pugh by royal licence when he inherited the estate of his uncle Lewis Pugh. He was a J.P. and Deputy Lieutenant for Cardiganshire.
Pugh had a distinguished career as a lawyer in India, becoming Attorney General of Bengal. In 1905, he had the house built at Cymerau. He died at the age of 70.
Pugh married Veronica Harriet Hills, daughter of James Hills of Neechindepore, Bengal in 1864. Veronica was the sister of James Hills who won the Victoria Cross in the Indian Mutiny. Family history says her younger brother Charles Hills (1847-1935) was the real father of Hollywood actress Merle Oberon (see Mile MacNair's book).
