The Vaughan Family in Wales and America is an update (2008) of a family history first published in 1990 by Higginson Book Company of Salem, Massachusetts. Originally conceived as a "search for the Welsh ancestors of William Vaughan (1750-1840)," this book became a global search for Vaughans of all seasons. Revised in 1992, this edition has been further revised by the author, 83 year-old James E. Vaughan, for publication and distribution by Trafford Publishing or 2657 Wilfert Road, Victoria BC CANADA V9B 5Z3, the publisher of his historical novels The Alchymist and The Silurist, and Diana and Leo, the former based on the lives of the 17th-century Welsh scientist Thomas Vaughan (The Alchymist), and his twin brother Henry Vaughan (The Silurist), and the latter on the lurid prose of a 19th century Parisian named Gabrielle Jogand-Pages. Writing under the pen name Leo Taxil, Jogand-Pages’ principal targets were Thomas Vaughan and a young American girl named Diana Vaughan, who sought to prove her kinship toThomas. More than twenty years of research preceded the publication of the novels. The revised family history is now available for readers of the two novels who may desire to explore factual aspects of Vaughan family history.
