1 The pedigree here differs from that in Hist. Powys Fadog, vi, p. 23, in which the male and female lines appear to have been confused, and the entire descent is derived from David, second son of Ieuan, second son of Y Gwion Llwyd, Baron of Hendwr, of Gwnodl in Glyndyvrdwy, and of Branas Isa in Edeyrnion, instead of, as here, from Ieuan, second son of Gruffydd of Llanuwchlyn, ab Madoc ab Iorwerth ab Ririd Vlaidd. (Arch. Camb., 1877, pp. 102 et seq.) Here Thomas appears as the son of Rowland ab Thomas ab Rowland ab Davydd; there as the son of Rowland ab Davydd ab Rhydderch. The marriages differ entirely. The confusion would seem to have arisen out of the marriage of David Lloyd with Catherine, daughter of William ab David Lloyd, descended from Ieuan, second son of Gruffydd of Llanuwchlyn, fourth from Rhirid Vlaidd, whose line is here given as the paternal one from Madoc of Hendwr. (See also H. P. F., vi, pp. 19, 47.) Humphrey Jones of Tyfos, not named in either pedigree, was co-executor with Henry Lloyd, of Penporchell, of the will of John Lloyd of Penaner, who died s. p., 1690.Ex inf. C. S. Mainwaring, Esq., of Galltvaenan and Bwlch y Beudy.

2 High Sheriff of Merionethshire, 1673. He married Mary, daughter and heiress of Humphrey Wynn of Hendwr. (Hist. Powys Fadog, vi, p. 21.)

3 This is the pedigree of Branas Uchaf, not to be confounded with Branas Isaf. Plas yn Nghrogen is now called simply Crogen, and belongs to the Earl of Dudley by purchase. The house is on the bank of the Dee. The Branas estate having been sold, has passed through several families, and been since 1696 the property of the houses of Llanvorda and Wynnstay. (Hist. Powys Fadog, vi, 19, 47.)
