Sir Watkin Willaims -Wynn (1692-1749) was the eldest son and heir of Sir William Williams, Bart, of Llanforda near Oswestry; his mother, Jane Thelwall, was a descendant of the antiquary, Sir John Wynn of Gwydir, Caernarfonshire. The name "Watkin Williams-Wynn" was common to several of the later baronets. There is a Welsh folk song named after the best-known of these. He was prominant Jacobite supporter, but the government did not take any action against him.
