Families covered: Kings/Lords of Gwent, Family of Llanfoist, Price of Llanfoist

Ynir, King of Gwentland
|(1) Siddons identifies Ynir as "paternally descended from Ynir, the second son of Holy Kydwaladir (Cadwaladr), King of the Britains, which Kydwaladir built Abergevennt and the castle thereof." This Ynir may have lived in the 11th century as his wife's possible brother-in-law, Rhys, Prince of South Wales, died in 1093.
(2) It appears that there are inconsistencies as to the number of generations shown for some of the lines given below. For example, the date of death given for William Price of Llanfoist (by 1635) appears to be inconsistent with the fact that 6 generations below Arnhalt (al Gwilim ap Meiric), shown below, was Sir Nicholas Arnold (b c1509, d 13.04.1580).

  m. Jane (dau/coheir of Yvor ap Syssylht, lord of Llys Tal y bont)
  ((1)) Arnhalt (ap Gwilim ap Meiric)
  Siddons places "q." in front of the entry for Arnhalt which we presume means that showing him as son of the above Gwilim (ap Meiric) is likely but has not been fully proven.
