Iorwerth of Ynys-y-Maengwyn (a 1425)
Griffith (p237), which follows the line of Jenkin, shows Iorwerth's wife as Angharad, shown as mother of Ithel + Ednyfed + Jenkin, but adds that, in other manuscripts, he is shown as married to Gwenllian. Griffith (p316), which follows the line of Ithel, shows him Iorwerth as married to Gwenllian and does not mention Anghard or his other sons. The following attempts to pull these together.
