He was the first Vaughan to settle at Golden Grove. He was a member of parliament for Carmarthenshire in 1601 and 1620-1622.
His biogrpahy is as follows:
Family and Education
b. c.1575, 1st s. of Walter Vaughan by his 1st w. Mary, da. of Griffith Rice of Newton. educ. Jesus, Oxf. 1592, aged 17; I. Temple 1596. m. (1) Margaret, da. of Gelly Meyrick, 1s 1da.; (2) Jane, da. of Sir Thomas Palmer of Wengham, Kent, wid. of Sir William Meredith of Leeds, Kent, s.p. suc. fa. 1598. Kntd. 1599; cr. Baron Vaughan [I] 1621, Earl of Carbery [I] 1628.1
Bailiff, Carmarthen 1598, mayor 1603; j.p. Carm. aft. 1601; commr. oyer and terminer, S. Wales 1601; sheriff, Carm. Nov. 1604-Feb. 1606; bailiff, Kidwelly 1608; comptroller, Prince of Wales's household 1618; commr. on moneys levied for Ireland, Carm. 1627; member, council in the marches of Wales 1633.2
Vaughan was heir to an estate estimated in 1601 at £800 a year; in George Owen's list of Carmarthenshire generosi a year or so later he stood second only to Sir Thomas Jones of Abermarlais, and by the end of his life Golden Grove had outstripped Abermarlais in the Carmarthenshire hierarchy, the primacy of the Vaughans remaining unchallenged through most of the seventeenth century. Within a year of succeeding his father, Vaughan accompanied Essex on his ill-omened Irish campaign, and was knighted by him. The tradition that the Queen 'disallowed' the honour, and that it was again conferred by Lord Deputy St. John in 1617, is contradicted by the consistent use of the title until it was superseded by the peerage; it is likely that the 1617 knight was the 'Captain Vaughan' who spent his life in Ireland, as soldier, planter, privy councilor and Parliament man, until long after the Carmarthenshire Member's peerage and even after his death.3
In 1601 Vaughan accused a fellow-magistrate in Star Chamber of 'unlawful affection' for recusants and affrays at the great sessions and Llandeilo market, and complained of the increase of popery in the area. These sound like defensive tactics, for the treason of Essex and his Welsh steward, Meyrick, made the latter's son-in-law vulnerable. In 1601-2 Vaughan was charged, in two other Star Chamber suits, with conspiring with Sir Thomas Jones to cheat a lunatic out of his lands, and with procuring the conveyance of a guest's patrimony by plying him with drink. But in the latter year he quarreled with Jones over the manors of Hirfryn, Perfedd and Llandovery. These manors, once held by Abermarlais, had been granted by Elizabeth to their ancient lords the Audleys, and Lord Audley had conveyed them to Sir John's father; Sir John now accused Sir Thomas before the Exchequer court of interference with his manorial rights.4
More perilous accusations arose out of the Essex conspiracy. The fact that a few weeks before the revolt Vaughan's wife had conveyed her father's plate and chattels to her husband's house naturally aroused suspicion. He was even named among those present at the fateful meeting at Essex House where plans were laid, but a more credible account represents him as having 'turned back' on the way. At all events, before the end of February 1601 he was discharged 'without bonds, indictment, arraignment or fine'. He assured Cecil that the charges against him had been made in revenge for his severity towards recusants. Before autumn he was settled at Golden Grove, acknowledging Cecil's 'favours' and commending to him one of his many brothers, and in October he was entrusted with the raising of horse in Carmarthenshire to meet the Spanish landing in Ireland. In the same month he was elected knight of the shire for Carmarthenshire, which would have entitled him to sit on the main business committee for that Parliament (3 Nov.) and on the monopolies committee (23 Nov.). In the seventeenth century he was to obtain central office, and an Irish peerage. He died 6 May 1634.5

General Notes: Husband - John Vaughan
According to a summary of the Cawdor Vaughan muniments held by the Carmarthenshire Archive Service (ref. code GB 0211 CAWDOR), it was John, and not his father Hugh, who built the first Golden Grove mansion between 1560 and 1565. The Welsh name, Gelli Aur is probably a corruption of Gelli Oer, the cold grove, as the original mansion lay low down in the valley facing north.
John served as an MP for Carmarthen 1558, 1571 and 1572. His biography in "The History of Parliament: the House of Commons 1558-1603", ed. P.W. Hasler, 1981, is as follows:
Family and Education
b. by 1525, 1st s. of Hugh Vaughan of Kidwelly by 1st w. Jane, da. of Moris ab Owen of Bryn-y-Beirdd, Llandeilo, Carm. and Upton Castle, Pemb. m. Catherine, da. of Henry Morgan of Muddlescwm, 2s. Henry and Walter. 1da.; at least 6s. 5da. illegit.
Bailiff, Carmarthen in 1553, mayor 1554-5, 1563-4, alderman in 1555; receiver, duchy of Lancaster, Kidwelly 10 Mar. 1554-d.; j.p.q. Carm. 1559-d.; commr. subsidy 1560, piracy 1565; customer, Milford Haven, Pemb. 1560-d.; steward, Cilgerran, Pemb. 1560-d; sheriff, Carm. 1562-3; bailiff, coroner, escheator and town clerk, Kidwelly by 1572.
The Vaughans of Golden Grove (as they came to be known) were of old Powys stock, traditionally of base descent from the princes of Powys. The first to appear in South Wales was Vaughan's father, who made a fortunate marriage into the family of Sir Rhys ap Gruffydd of Dynevor then the most powerful man in Wales. On Rhys's attainder in 1531, Hugh Vaughan (then a groom of the chamber) was one of those appointed to collect the rents accruing to the Crown from the attained man's lands in the lordship of Kidwelly.
John Vaughan II added substantially to the lands his father had acquired in the commote of Is-Cennan first by securing a lease of the manor of Dryslwyn, north of the Towy, and then in 1564, by taking leases of Rhys ap Gruffydd's former lands south of the river. It was here that the family mansion of Golden Grove was built, and tradition makes John Vaughan the builder. However, in all contemporary documents, up to and including his will, he is described as 'of Carmarthen' (or, as in the pardon roll of 1554, 'late of Carmarthen'). On the other hand, his request to be buried in the parish church of Llanfihangel Aberbythych suggests at least an intention to settle in the parish. In 1568 and 1566 he made further acquisitions from the forfeited lands of Rhys ap Gruffydd in and around Llanelly, Pembrey, Llanstephen and St. Clears (east and west of Kidwelly) and in Carmarthen borough. He also accumulated offices both in the lordship of Kidwelly and in Carmarthen borough, where his mayoralty was the subject of a complimentary ode by a bard of Gwynedd, and was followed by return to Parliament for the Boroughs. He became an important figure in the shire, in influence second only to the family of Jones of Abermarlais, the chief beneficiaries by the attainder of their kinsman Rhys ap Gruffydd.
Vaughan had to put up a fight in the court of the duchy of Lancaster in 1570-1 for his duchy lands and offices, and his title was evidently upheld: the offices provided the excuse for a period of leave of absence from Parliament 11 June 1572 and the lands remained in the family. Browne Willis is wrong in giving Vaughan as the Member for Carmarthenshire in 1571 in his printed list, and may also be wrong in giving John Morgan as the Member for Carmarthen Boroughs in 1571. If so, it is at least possible that Vaughan sat for the Boroughs in that Parliament. The John Vaughan who was on two committees in 1571 was presumably John Vaughan I, but both John Vaughans were on the committee discussing Mary Stuart, 12 May 1572.
Vaughan died in 1574. The parliamentary vacancy was filled by his heir and executor Walter, who also succeeded his father in the mayoralty of Carmarthen, the receivership of Kidwelly, and, later, the shrievalty of Carmarthenshire. In his will, dated 6 Aug. 1568 and proved 19 June 1574, Vaughan bequeathed the Is-Cennan lands centring on Golden Grove to Walter Vaughan, but the outlying estates, including manors, parsonages, townships and house property in and near Carmarthen and Kidwelly and in south Pembrokeshire, to his other son Henry. Those in Llanelly district went to a cousin; and provision was made in cash and stock totalling about £100 for his many illegitimate children. Charitable bequests amounted to no more than ten shillings for the poor, and another £1 for municipal uses, at Carmarthen, and £2 and a black gown to the bishop for a funeral sermon.
