2. Hugh Trygarn (a 1442, rector of Llanddyfnan, archdeacon of Merioneth)
  The following comes from the section on 'Rowland Jones, on the maternal side' within Griffith's Pedigrees (Broom Hall, p331). The apparent confusion with the wives of various of Hugh's descendants, and the identification of his attributed daughter Margaret as his heir, raises doubts as to the reliability of the following.
  m. Gwenllian (great-granddau of Owen Pigott, lord of Ewyas)
  A. Richard Griffith of Trygarn
  Griffith (p331) shows Richard's wife as Myfanwy Gwynion of Penllech and cross-refers to p272 where her husband is shown as Richard Trygarn of Trygarn, cross-refering to p276. Although it is possible that Myffanwy (Myddanwy) married twice, we presume that this Richard has been confused with the Richard Trygarn shown at the top of the page.
  i. Robert
  Griffith (p331) shows Robert's wife as Gwen, dau of Gruffydd ap John Gruffydd, of Cefnamwlch, and cross-refers to p164 where her husband is shown as Robert ap Richard Trygarn, cross-refering to p276. Although it is possible that Gwen married twice, we presume that this Robert has been confused with the Robert Trygarn shown at the top of the page.
  a. Richard
  m. Ann Hughes of Cefn Llanfair
  (1) Robert
  m. Grace Lloyd of Brynsyllty
  (A) Richard
Griffith (p331) shows Richard's wife as Elin Rowlands of Meyllteyrn (sister of Bishop Rowlands) and cross-refers to p269 where her (Eleanor's) husband is shown as Richard ap Thomas Trygarn, cross-refering to p276. Although it is possible that Elin/Eleanor married twice, we presume that this Richard has been confused with the Richard Trygarn (d 1604) shown above.
  (i) Thomas
  m. Margaret Lewis of Rhiw
  (a) Harry
  m. Mawd Owen of Trefaes
  ((1)) Richard Parry (b c1647, d 10.08.1724)
  m. Catherine Jones of Dwylan (b 1653-4, d 01.05.1717)

  m. John Williams of Bachellyn
  B. Margaret, heiress of Meyllteyrn shown on Griffith (p54, Plas Gwyn & Llwynogan)
  m. Rhys ap Howel
3. Llewelyn of Cefn Llanfair
