Gwynggy, King of Fferregg & Brecknock - continued above
1. Hydd or Hugo, King of Fferregg & Brecknock
  A. Sir Dryffin (Driffen or Driffon), King of Brecknock
  m. Chrisly (dau of Meyric ap Edwal by Avandreg, dau of Mervyn ap Rhodri Mawr)
i. Maenyrch (Maenarch), lord of Brecknock
  ## BEB1841 follows the line of Rhys Goch, shown as son of Maenyrch's cousin Einion. Smart shows that Maenarch was father of Bleddyn & Rhys by ...
  m. Elinor or Ellen (dau of Einon ap Seliffe of Cwmwd)
  a. Bleddyn ap Maenrych (Maenarch), lord of Brecknock (d 1096)
m. Elin (dau of Tewdr Mawr, sister of Prince Rhys)
  b. Rhys Goch (red haired), lord of Ystradyw (Ystradwy)
  m. Joan (dau of Cadwgan ap Elystan Glodrydd, Prince of Ferlex (Ffereggs))
  (1) Kynvillyn or Cyhyllen Voel (Genyllyn or Cynhyllyn or Cyhylyn foel) of Ystradwy
  Smart notes that various sources (including Burke) omit Cynyllen Voel ap Rhys Goch or confound him with his grandson. BEB1841 does so. However, Smart then confuses the issue by omitting the second Rhys, reported in the text on p44, from the chart shown opposite p21. We follow the text.
  m. Jannett (dau/heir of Howell, prince of Caerleon)
  (A) Rhys of Ystradwy omitted by BEB1841
  m. Anne (dau of Moreiddig Warwyn of Brecon) @@ below

  (2) Gladys
m. Ynyr Yehan, King of Gwent
  ii. Drymbenog of Cantref-Seliffe
  a. Moreiddig Warwyn of Brecon
  (1) Anne
  m. Rhys of Ystradwy @@ above
2. Einion
  BEB1841 shows Einion, brother of Hugo, as father of Rhys Goch. See ## above.
