1 See Hist. Powys Fadog, vi, 151-152, in which this pedigree is given somewhat differently, Sir John Wynn's mother being there named “Jane", and Gruffydd ab Siankyn, "Gruffydd ab Ieuan." The former appears to have been of Hendre Gelli Dywyll, in Ffestiniog, a place which, according to the Tai Croesion MS., and Notes by Bishop Humphreys (in the possession of Mrs. Jones-Parry of Aberdunant), passed, together with Brynllydan and Cesail Gyvarch, by the marriage of the heiress, Elin, daughter of Ivan ab Howel ab Ieuan ab Madoc, to Ivan ab Davydd of Penarth in Penmachno, fifth paternal ancestor of Humphrey Humphreys, Bishop of Bangor and Hereford, ob. 1713. Gruffydd ab Jenkin married (according to Tai Croesion MS.) Mallt, daughter of Gruffydd ab Meredydd Vychan ab Meredydd ab Ieuan ab Trahaiarn Goch of Lleyn, by whom he was father of Thomas ab Gruffydd of Clynnog. Previous descents are also given differently by Lewis Dwnn (ii, 89), who gives Howel ab Gruffydd as father of Tudor, and to Meredydd another son Rhys.

4 This ancient house is still extant, situated on the Dee, close to the water's edge, and approached by an old avenue of trees. The representatives of the original family, male descendants of Owain Brogyntyn, were Barons of Hendwr. David of Cryniarth, elder brother of Gruffydd of Hendwr, was Constable of Harlech Castle during its famous siege by the Yorkists under the Earl of Pembroke. 5 Living in the thirty-eighth year of Henry VIII.

3 Gwraig.

5 This pedigree is confirmed by the additional notes by Bishop Humphreys to Wood's Athena Oxonienses, printed after his death. Edmund Meyrick succeeded his father Peter at Ucheldre, which was purchased by him. The last Meyrick who owned it, a vicar of Corwen, sold it to Kyffin of Maenan. It now forms part of the Rûg estate, and is an interesting specimen of a very early small Welsh mansion. Edmund Meyrick was descended from Rowland Meyrick, Bishop of Bangor, 1559-63, in succession to Dr. Glynn, Bishop of that see, 1555-58. He married Grace, daughter and heiress of Cadwaladr of Garthlwyd in Llanddervel in Penllyn, son of Watkin ab Edward of that place (buried 22nd Feb. 1610-11), by his wife Grace, daughter of Cadwaladr ab Robert ab Rhys of Rhiwlas. (Harl. MS. 2288, and Add. MS. 9866.) This family came, through Howel y Gadair of Penllyn, from Rhirid Vlaidd, and maternally from Marchweithian.

Bapt. Feb. 12, 1623-24. (Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 126.)

2 This place is situate in Glyndyvrdwy, near the site of the mansion of Owen Glyndwr, on the Dee. There are now two farms of the name belonging to Rûg, Carrog Ucha and Isa. In the latter is a huge, thick, rough, circular block of oaken timber, said to have been anciently a table in the house of Owen Glyndwr. For the origin of the family see Hist. Powys Fadog, vi, p. 375.

See also Hist. Powys Fadog, vi, p. 11, where two further descents are given, viz., Richard Lloyd married daughter of Arthur Ward of Oswestry, and...gleton Lloyd.

2 This is the same place as Rhagatt, in the parish of Llansantffraid, near Corwen, where there have dwelt two families named Lloyd: the first a cadet branch of that of Plas yn Yale, descended from Osborn Wyddel; the second derived in the direct male line, throughout, from Cyhelin ab Rhys Sais, and so from Tudor Trevor. (Hist. Powys Fadog, vol. iv.) For the one connecting strain of blood between the first and last families of Lloyd of Rhagatt, through those of Pontruffydd and Plas Isa, in Edeirnion, see list. of Powys Fadog, iv, p. 137; v, p. 300; and vi, pp. 42-43.

3 Living 1680 (Ilist. of Powys Fadog, vi, p. 375).

4 Lowri married firstly Robert ap Robin ab Gruffydd Goch of Rhôs. Her father Tudr was born about 1362, and was lord of Gwyddelwern in Glyndyfrdwy. He was twenty-four years of age on 3 Sept. 1386, and was younger brother of the celebrated Owain Glyndwr. (Hist. Powys Fadog, i, p. 197.)
