This page is still being researched. It has NOT yet been launched formally into the Database but is shown here TEMPORARILY (albeit for an uncertain length of time pending further research), partly to record connections that we fear we might otherwise lose sight of and partly in the hope that one or more visitors to the site will contribute information that will enable us to develop our information on the families covered in this page to a standard that would support release of a dedicated page in the Database.

Braint Hir of Is Dulas§W§ (N10)
(1) It is not clear why Braint Hir is identified as one of the ancestors of the 15 Tribes of North Wales given that "His progeny did not much increase, for there are not many at present known to be descended of him" and "There is not, it seems, a single family at the present day that can trace its descent direct through the male line to Braint Hir. Pennant and Yorke (Tracts of Powys) mentioned the family of Vaughan of Pont y Gwyddel, now extinct, as belonging to this Tribe."
(2) Williams reports that Braint Hir lived about the time of the sons of Roderick the Great (Rhodri Mawr, who d 877) but notes that "The Welsh Bruts ... say that he lived at a much earlier date, being nephew of Cadwallon, King of North Wales, 630-632" (probably Cadwallan, King of Gwynedd).
