In 1786 it passed by marriage to the Talbot family of Lacock, Wiltshire, and it is they, during the 19th century, who began to gather together various stone crosses and standing stones in the locality. In 1892 Emily Talbot gave them to the nation, in the care of the Commissioner of Public Works.

In 1932 they were moved into their present building, a former Church schoolhouse close to Margam Abbey Church.

Several of the Margam stones feature these incised carvings, including No 3, and the back of No 13. A tall cylindrical stone pillar with the top broken and missing.

Three outline Latin crosses are cut in, and a short inscription.

From 900 to 1100 AD, these have detailed patterns of lattice or plaitwork, and include a number of inscriptions in Latin.

They are the most visually dramatic group within the museum, and are the bulk of the pre-Norman collection.

It is a sandstone pillar, 1.52 metres (5.0 ft) high, and 0.48 metres (1.6 ft) by 0.25 metres (0.82 ft), first noted in 1839. A squared pillar of Old Red Sandstone, 1.35 metres (4.4 ft) tall, it contains both Latin and Ogham scripts.

Two areas of Ogham script appear, written as notches along the side of the stone, on the same face as the Latin name.

A stone pillar also known as 'The Margam Stone', and 'Carreg Lythyrenog'.
