Description:
Charles Morgan (1736 – 24 May 1787) was a Welsh politician of the mid-to-late 18th century, the second son of Thomas Morgan and his wife, Jane.

In 1763, he entered the House of Commons as Member of Parliament for Brecon, succeeding his elder brother. He was Bailiff of Brecon in 1768, and a lieutenant in the Foot Guards 1769. That year he accepted the Stewardship of the Manner of East Hendred to succeed his late father in a by-election at Breconshire, which he represented until his death. He married Mary, daughter of Thomas Parry and widow of Robert Myners Gough, but had no children by her. In 1771, he inherited the Tredegar estate from his elder brother, Thomas Morgan, and succeeded him as Lord Lieutenant of Brecknockshire. The castle on his estates at Rhiperw burned in 1783, and rebuilding was not completed until after his death in 1787. His estates went to his younger brother, John Morgan.
