  m. Ethil (Eisyllt or Essyllt) of Gwynedd
  Griffith shows the wives of Gwyriad and his son Merfyn the other way around, with Essyllt as wife rather than mother of Merfyn and Nesta as wife rather than daughter-in-law of Gwyriad. We comment more on this matter under Merfyn on the continuation page.

  b. Cadrod Hardd§W§
  The following comes from Griffith's Pedigrees (Tribe of Cadrod Hardd, p395). Griffith (p81) starts with Cadrodd Bardd, identifying him as Lord of Bodafon, but suggests that he was living in AD1000. This raises concerns as to the reliability of this connection, possibly indicating confusion between different Cadrods and/or the omission of several generations.
