This looks like the "Esger y Gronshias" of the 1756 David Richards will,with the "Morrice" family?

Just started to gather info. This link gives all the info for the Rev. Thomas Richards, son of David.

  https://books.google.co.uk/books?isbn=1852851643
                                   ( page346.)

 Thomas' father, Rev. David Richards, died at Ratlinghope, Hereford in 1779.
Thomas attended Magdalene College, Oxford circa 1780. (Ordained 1784, Batchelor Law,1786.

At least one of the other properties owned was Nantcwtta in Llangwyryfon/Llanddeiniol.It is listed against David Richards clk.,living in Shropshire in the 1760 freeholders(Hyssington is sometimes given as Shropshire,sometimes as Montgomeryshire)

.Further evidence is here:

     Sorry for the delay- who gets visitors on a Wednesday?
  The Rev David of Ratlinghope was an error.
 Interesting that Nantcwtta in Llangwyryfon is shown in your linked document as being part of the Carrog Estate. I also see that the Solicitor involved in the transaction was also a Richards. Does it mention the occupant of Nantcwtta in the Freeholders?

 I'm trying to work out who Stephen Morrice was. I would hazard a guess that the Rev. David's wife was a Morrice and that Stephen was her brother. Mary Morrice is shown in the account (1800's) of Rev. Thomas as his niece. She helped Thomas' wife, Frances, in her teaching role.
                                      Regards Peter.
PS Forgot just how small an area we're dealing with regarding Nantcwtta.
 If we could find out when David was at Oxford then, hopefully, we could find out his father's name.

There is a Stephen Morrice,grandson to David Richards(1756 will) son to his eldest daughter Elizabeth and a James Morice.
Just to make things easy(!),the Mary Morice (born circa 1790),niece to Thomas Richards,looks to be the daughter of Thomas' sister Mary,who I think must be the subject of this marriage to - a James Morice(!).The Morices/Morrices feature heavily in the 1760 freeholders,no doubt all part of the Car(r)og estate.

David Richards,clerk,appears at Hyssington 1757/1758 according to the CCeD database,but I can't find any birth/baptismal or educational data so far.
