  (1) Rhirid Flaidd, lord of Penllyn (d c1207?)§W§

  m. Owen Hen ap Gruffydd
  (C) Madog
  m. Arddun (dau of Philip ap Uchtryd, of Cyfeiliog, ap Edwin ap Goronwy)
  (i) Gruffydd - continued below
  (ii) Rhirid Vychan
The following is supported by Griffith's Pedigrees (Chirk Castle, p285) which reports that some sources identify Rhirid's wife as Gwenllian, dau of Cynwrig ap Rhiwallon (from Tudur Trevor) but gives precedence to identying her as ...
  m. Gwenllian (dau of Dafydd ap Cadwaladr ap Adda ap Sir Robert)
  (a) David (alias Y Pothan Flaidd)
  m. Margaret or Mared (dau of Gruffydd ap Goronwy ap Ivor ap Adda ap Llewelyn ap Iorwerth)
  ((1)) David (a 09.1375)
  m. Jonet (dau of David Vychan ap David ap Cadwaladr ap Meurig ap Robert ap Howel Vychan ap Howel ap Sir Robert of Ucheldre)

  m. Eva (dau of Gruffydd ap Einion ap Gruffydd, of Cors y gedol)
  ((1)) Gruffydd
  m. Jonet (dau of Cynfelyn ap Dolphyn, of Manafon)
  ((A)) Ieuan of Llandwehllyn & Cefntreflaeth (d 1370)
  @#@ The above connection is supported by Griffith's Pedigrees (Treflaeth, p280). However, we suspect that there has been confusion between the following Ieuan (ap Gruffydd ap Madog) and the one shown below.
  m1. Gwenllian (dau/coheir of Evan ap Howel ap Meredydd)
  m2. Annes (dau of Llewelyn ap Einion)
  (iv) Ieuan
  The following is supported by Griffith's Pedigrees (Meyllteyrn (p269) & Plas Gwyn & Llwynogan (p54)). On pp269+394 Griffith shows Ieuan as father of Gruffydd father of Evan Vychan. On p54 he shows Ieuan (brother of Gruffydd) as father of Evan Vychan. We follow the latter but note that some other sources may insert a Gruffydd as another generation here.
(a) Evan Vychan (Ieuan Vychan)
  m. Nest (dau/heir of Ithel ddu ap Ieuan ap Cynfrig Vychan)

  i. Howel
  a. Meredydd
  (1) Dafydd
  (A) Rhyderch
  (i) Cadwaladr
  (a) Lewis Gwyn of Llanyeoil
2. Ieuan
  @#@ Griffith (p394) shows this as the Ieuan who m. Gwenlliau (dau of Evan ap Howel ap Meredydd, of Ystumllyn). However, Griffith (p280) shows that Ieuan as the Ieuan shown above. We suspect either that there has been confusion berween the two Ieuan ap Gruffydd ap Madogs or that they were in fact the same person with one of the lines being shown in error.
