Research Notes: Child - Celynin ab Rhirid ab Cynddelw

Source: The History of the Princes, the Lords Marcher, and the Ancient Nobility of Powys Fadog, Vol. 6, by J. Y. W. Lloyd, London, 1887, p. 113, gives his pedigree from Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277, as follows:

"...ab Llewelyn ab Einion ab Celynin, who killed the Mayor of Caermarthen. Celynin bore sable, a he-goat argent, armed, bearded, and unguled or; and became possessed of Llwydiarth by his marriage with Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Rhirid ab Cynwrig Evell (ag a gavas Llwydiarth Ymhowys). Her mother was Arddun, daughter of Itel Goch, son of Meredydd ab Bleddyn, Prince of Powys. Celynin was the son of Rhirid ab Cynddelw ab Iorwerth ab Gwrgeneu ab Uchtryd ab Aleth, King of Dyved. Azure, three cocks argent, created, wattled, and armed or."

Then the author writes in an extensive footnote:

"But it must be remarked that this is not accordant with the Llwydiarth pedigree as given in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294. There 'Gwellian, the daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr' (? Mawr) is stated to be the wife of Celynin, and 'Gwladys, daughter of Richard, Lord of Dinas Certhin', to be his mother. It is said, however, that in the Salisbury MSS. at Wynnstay, that Gwladys, the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is stated to be the mother of Celynin, and not the wife, as mentioned in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277. This would account for the acquisition by Celynin, either by heirship or marriage, of Llwydiarth, assuming that it was part of the territory of Cynwrig Evell.

Celynin was living in the time of Edward II or Edward III (130740), and an experienced genealogist throws a doubt as to the possibility of Celynin, or his father, being contemporaneous with a grand-daughter of Cynwrig Evell.

We cannot venture to pronounce which of these discordant statements is correct, or how they are to be reconciled; but looking at the main circumstances of the case, we should certainly infer that Llwydiarth was acquired by Celynin, by marriage, rather than descent.

"He was a South Wallian by birth and family, and upon committing a homicide,--'killing the Mayor of Caermarthen,'--under what circumstances, and whether justifiably or not, it does not appear, he fled from the scene of his crime--which it is natural to conclude was Caermarthen--to Powys-land.

"According to the Llwydiarth Pedigree in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294, his wife Gwellian, and his mother, Gwladys, as well as the rest of his female ancestresses up to the sixth degree in lineal ascent, were of South Wallian families.

"It is not probable that Llwydiarth could be derived from any of them.

"The statement in the Salisbury MSS., of his mother being the daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell, is most improbable. How should his father, Ririd ap Cynddelw, form an alliance with a family of Powys-land, with which district his family seemed to have no connection until Celynin fled into Powys-land?

"The probabilities of the case all seem to point to Celynin himself being the medium by which this important accretion of territory came to his family.

"He was the first of his family connected with Powys-land.

"The statement in Lewys Dwnn, vol. ii, p. 277, is distinct and circumstantial, that he married Gwladys, daughter and heiress of Ririd ab Cynwrig Evell, 'ag a gavas Llwydiarth ymhowys' (and obtained Llweydiarth in Powys).

"To reconcile this with the Llwydiarth pedigree in Lewys Dwnn, vol. i, p. 294, the only theory that occurs to us is, that Celynin must have been married twice: first, before he left his native country, South Wales, to Gwellian, daughter of Meredith ap Rhydderch ap Tewdwr Mawr; and secondly, after he fled from Caermarthen and arrived in Powys-land, to Gwladys, daughter of Ririd ap Cynwrig Evell.

"If this theory would hold water, Celynin's son Einion, the first of the family styled 'of Llwydiarth', would inherit that estate from his mother, Gwladys, the second wife, and not Gwenllian, the first wife.

"The direct statement of Lewys Dwnn, who is almost invariably trustworthy, coupled with the strong probability of its truth, seems to us to deserve respect and creidt. Until otherwise advised, therefore, we shall assume, on the authority of this celebrated herald, that Llwydiarth was derived by Celynin through his marriage with its heiress, after he settled in Powys-land.--M. C. J."

----

Prince of Powys 1069-1075.

From "Eunydd son of Gwenllian" by Darrell Wolcott (http://www.ancientwalesstudies.org/id51.html):
"Bleddyn ap Cynfyn was the prince of Powys from 1069 until his death in 1075. There is no record of him ever fighting the English, either in Bromfield or elsewhere; he was confirmed as a local ruler in Wales by Edward the Confessor in 1063 and nothing indicates the Norman Marcher Lords invaded Powys as early as 1075. He was killed long before Dafydd ap Owain Gwynedd was born; the active floruit of the latter was c. 1173-1203."


Research Notes: Child - Maredudd ap Bleddyn

Source: A History of Wales by John Davies, London, 2007, p. 81

From Dictionary of National Biography, vol. XII, edited by Sidney Lee, New York, 1909, pp. 1015-1016:

"MAREDUDD ap BLEDDYN (d. 1182), prince of Powys, was the son of Bleddyn ap Cynfyn (d. 1075), founder of the last native dynasty of Powys. Durikng his earlier years he played only a subordinate part in Welsh affairs, being overshadowed by his brothers Iowerth [q.v.] and Cadwgan (d. 1112) [q.v.] He joined them in the support which they gave to their over-lord, Earl Robert of Shrewsbury, in his rebellion against Henry I (1102), but Iorwerth soon went over to the king and, while making his peace with Cadwgan, consigned Maredudd to a royal prison. In 1107 Maredudd escaped and returned to Powys. He remained, however, without territory for several years. Even when Iorwerth and Cadwgan were slain in succession in 1112 he did not improve his position. According to 'Brut y Tywysogion' (Oxford edit. p. 291), he was in 1113 'penteulu' (captain of the guard) to Owain ap Cadwgan, an office specially reserved by Welsh custom for landless members of the royal family (Ancient Laws of Wales, ed. 1841, i. 12). In that year, however, Owain divided with him the forfeited domains of Madog ap Fhiryd. Though the gift seems to have been resumed, Maredudd recovered it on Owain's death in 1116, and henceforward appears regularly among the princes of Powys. In 1118 he took part in the feud between Hywel of Rhos and Rhufoniog and the sons of Owain ab Edwin. In 1121 he was leader of the resistance offered by Powys to the invasion of Henry I. During the few remaining years of his life his power grew apace; in 1128 his nephew, Einon ap Cadwgan, bequeathed him his territory; in 1124 a second son of Cadwgan, Maredudd, was murdered; and in 1128 a third, Morgan, eied on pilgrimage. Two other enemies to his progress--his nephew, Ithel ap Rhiryd, and his great-nephew, Llywelyn ab Owain--Maredudd himself removed, the former by murder, the latter by mutilation. Thus at his death in 1132 he was lord of all Powys [see MADOG ap MAREDUDD]. [Annales Cambriae, Rolls ed.; Brut y Tywysogion, Oxford edit. of Red Book of Hergest.] J. E. L. [John Edward Lloyd]"

From "The Ancestry of Edwin of Tegeingl" by Darrell Wolcott (http://www.ancientwalesstudies.org/id42.htm) :
"In the last years of the eleventh century and the opening years of the next, Owain ap Edwin was installed by the Normans as ruler of Gwynedd after they had caused Gruffudd ap Cynan to flee to Ireland. It earned him the Welsh epithet "Fradwr" or traitor; but it seems clear from the chronicles that this family remained a major player in north Wales until 1125 when three sons of Owain ap Edwin were killed by a son of Gruffudd ap Cynan."
