Inherited Ffrwdgrech, Brecon from his cousin Mrs Mary Church Pearce. Changed name to Church by letters Patent signed and sealed by the Garter and Clarenceux Kings of Arms dated 1869.

“There has been a house on this site since 1560 but the present Ffrwdgrech dates to the 1830s. The house was designed by architect Robert Lurger to take advantage of excellent views toward the Brecon Beacons. The real highlight of Ffrwdgrech is not the attractive house, however, but the well-preserved Victorian pleasure garden in which it stands. “
