In 1843, Lovesgrove, in the parish of Llanbadarn Fawr, Cardiganshire, was bought by John Evans (1804-1874) of Aberystwyth. He married Elizabeth, daughter of Lewis Pugh of Aber-mad, Llanychaearn, Cardiganshire, adding his wife's surname to his own, the family becoming Pugh Evans. John and Elizabeth's second son, Lewis Pugh Evans (1837-1908) inherited Aber-mad following the death of his bachelor uncle, on condition that he took the name of Pugh. Their third son, Sir Griffith Humphrey Pugh Evans (1840-1902) inherited Lovesgrove and built a mansion there in 1883. In 1873, he married Emelia Savi Hills, daughter of Sir James Hills of Neechandapore and Charlotte Savi and lived in Calcutta
