BPGW2001 (Lloyd formerly of Blaenglyn) identifies Hywel's 1st wife as Elen Salusbury and then, without mentioning his 2nd wife, shows his children as Gruffydd, Richard & Dafydd (father of Robert). BPGW2001 (Lloyd-Roberts of Plas Glanafon) names both wives and then reports that his 3rd son by his 1st wife was Robert of Cym Bychan. We follow Griffith which allocates the children as follows (but does not follow the line of Dafydd). We show Robert as son of Dafydd.
