  • Notes 
    • The ancestry of Cecil, wife of Sir Jevan is given as follows:
      "I. Gwrgan, Lord of Glamorgan, ap Ithel ap Owen, died 1042, ap Morgan Mwn-Mawr, Prince of Glamorgan, died 984, aet. 100, by Nest, daughter of Rodri Mawr. Gwrgan's descent was deduced by the Welsh from Caractacus, and several of his immediate ancestors were benefactors to the church of Llandaff. He is said to have died in 1070, and to have married a daughter of Gwyn ap Collwyn, Lord of Dyfe;d, ap Ednowen Bendew, Prince of N. Wales, and sister to Tangno, ancestor of Einon ap Collwyn. II. Jestyn ap Gwrgan, who succeeded to the lordship of Glamorgan, and is said to have resided at Dinas Powis, though certainly not in the building of which the ruins remain. He was dispossessed by Fitzhamon, a story beyond the compass of a pedigree. His domestic history has been recorded in various fashions, all unsatisfactory as regards evidence. He is said to have had three wives and to have been the parent of many children, legitimate and illegitimate, and finally to have died at a great age an exile in England. The reputed wives were: 1st Angharad, d. of Elystan Gldodryd, Prince of Fferlex....; 2nd Denis, d. of Bleddyn ap Cynvin, Prince of Powis; 3rd Gwenvyn, d. of Cynvin ap Gweristan. The parentage, number, and order of the children vary in the different pedigrees. They may be taken as follows: by Anghared.....3. Madoc, Lord of Ruthyn and of the lands between the Taff and the Ely, whence a branch. III. Madoc, second son of Jestyn, m. Jenet, d. of Sytsyll, Lord of Upper-Gwent, and had IV. Howel, m. a d. of Griffith ap Ivor Bach..... and had: 1. Cynfrig. 2. Jevan, whence a branch. 3. Joan. V. Cynfrig, Lord of Llantrithyd and Radyr, m. Angharad, d. and co-h. of Lewis ap Rhys ap Rosser. They had..... VI. Llewelyn of Llantrithyd and Radyr (living 6 Ed. I.), m. a d. of Sir Ralph Maylog. They had: 1. Evan. 2. Lewelyn-ychan..... 3. Aeddan or Watkyn, who m. a d. of Rhys Ddu ap Rhys Yorath, and had: (a) Matthew..... (b) Crisly or Cecil, eventual heiress, m. Sir Evan ap Griffith Gethyn, and thus conveyed Radyr to the Mathew family..... and others."
      Numerous sources state that Sir Jevan ap Griffith married Cecily, daughter of Sir Robert de Clare, 2nd son of Richard, 4th Earl of Hereford, but no substantiating evidence can be found for this claim.
