Research Notes: Husband - Meurig ap Llewelyn of Bodorgan

Archives Network Wales - Bodorgan Manuscripts (University of Wales Bangor GB0222 BOD):

"The Meyricks are descended from Cadfael, lord of Cedewain in Powys, but it was in the Tudor period that they first came into prominence. Llywelyn ap Heilyn fought under Henry Tudor [1457-1509; later King Henry VII] at the battle of Bosworth [22 Aug 1485]; his son Meyrick [ap Llywelyn] served under Henry VIII [1491-1547], was promoted to be captain of the bodyguard, and was given the Crown Lease of the manor of Aberffraw. In the late sixteenth century trouble erupted between Richard Meyrick II (d. 1596) and Hugh Owen of Bodeon concerning part of the Aberffraw manor lands. The Bodorgan estate was crushed by the cost of the litigation, and by 1590 a substantial portion had been sold to discharge Meyrick's debts. Richard Meyrick III (d. 1644) was the first of the family to be appointed sheriff of Anglesey. It was Owen Meyrick (1682-1760) who was the real founder of the later fortunes of the family. He was the second son of William Meyrick (1644-1717), and grandson of Richard Meyrick IV (d.1669). He was a keen supervisor of his estates and set it on a strong foundation. He looked after it ceaselessly and carefully, and considerably enlarged its boundaries. In the parliamentary election of 1708 for the county of Anglesey, he very seriously and almost successfully challenged the supremacy of the Bulkeleys and, although unsuccessful on this occasion, effectively challenged the Bulkeley supremacy on the island. For some years he did represent the county in Parliament (1715-1722). He was also High Sheriff in 1706, and Custos Rotulorum of Anglesey from 1715 till his death in 1759. Interestingly, he also commissioned Lewis Morris, the most famous of the three Morris brothers, to make a survey of the Bodorgan lands. Owen Meyrick was succeeded by his son Owen Meyrick (1705-1770), who married a wealthy heiress, the daughter of John Putland of London. His grandson, Owen Putland Meyrick (1752-1825) was also equally fortunate in his marriage to Clara, daughter and heiress to Richard Garth of Morden, Surrrey. The estate acquired additional wealth through the marriage of the latter's daughter and co-heiress, Clara, to Augustus Elliot Fuller of Ashdowne House, Sussex. Their son Owen Augustus Fuller (1804-1876) adopted the name Meyrick when he inherited the Bodorgan estate on the death of his grandfather.

In the course of time three other branches of the family were established at Gwyddelwern, Merioneth, at Cefn Coch, Llanfechell, co. Anglesey and at Monkton in Pembrokeshire. The strongest of these was the last, of which the founder was Rowland Meyrick (1505-1566), second son of Meurig ap Llywelyn and brother of Richard Meyrick I.

Research Notes: Husband - Gruffyd ap Ievan ap Owen of Abergynolwyn

From Reifsnyder-Gillam Ancestry, pp. 45-46:

"Rhydderch ap John, of Abergydolwyn, living 1583, was a son of John ap Gruffyd, of Abergydolwyn, grantee in a deed 1 February, 1553, and living 1583, son of Gruffyd ap Ievan [footnote 5], of Abergydolwyn, grantee in a deed 1516, living 1550, son of Ievan ap Owen, of Abergydolwyn, which Owen was born about 1430. Nothing further is known concerning the ancestry of the Abergydolwyn family."

Footnote 5, p. 45:
"Gruffydd is the Welsh form of Griffith; as the name is so spelled in the original deeds it is not changed. Rowland Ellis, in his pedigree of 1697, uses the Welsh form of spelling throughout. In Dwnn's visitations both forms are used. In the same manner Humphrey is often written Humffrey, etc. Note that Rowland Ellis in his pedigree of 1697, calls Catherine daughter of "Sion ap Rhydderch," i.e., John ap Rhydderch, which, however, is clearly a clerical error, as Sion ap Rhydderch was her brother."
