  These are shown on Griffith (p390) but not on Griffith (p5) and, given the relative rarity of 'Sir Howel's around this generation and as the Sir Howel shown above is reputed to have been knighted as a result of his closeness to King Edward II, whose nurse was Howel's mother, we (provisionally) assume that these entries were erroneous duplications.
