(1) Disappointingly, apart from agreeing on this Rhirid-Cecilia connection, the 2 sources we have on this family appear to follow different sons without mentioning the one(s) covered by the other. Provisionally we presume that, rather than evidencing differences between them, this shows their different interests with one following the descendants in Salop (Shropshire) and the other following the descendants in North Wales.
