* Owain Glyndwr and the Welsh Suirearchy. Transactions of the Cymrodorion. 1968. Useful Foot notes.
* Owain Glyndwr and Flintshire by C.R. Williams In the History of Flintshire, Vol I 1961. Good Source.
* For Family Tree, see Peter C. Bartrum in WElsh Genealogies AD 300 - 1400. Very Useful Background.
These are four very good documents, Flintshire Library Service will provide you with copies, all the information you want, and more will be therein these documents.
* There is also a book, damn it! I have lost the ref, cannot even remember the name of it at the moment but it's a fictional account of Hywel Gwynedd, quite a good read but author changes location of Hywels death to Mold, if I remember correctly, but there, it is a rather fanciful and esoteric piece of fiction. good read though. I cannot even remember Authors name (my age is telling)? but the book was published, if again I remember correctly, in first quater of 20th century. It is out of Print but I got a copy sent to my local library from Flintshire Library service. If I get time I will look for the ref, but you could check footnotes in above docs and ask F.L.S for information.
Hope this is useful, I have done my article in rough draft two years ago, still hope to get it posted some time. It will be published in our Teyrnas Glyndwr (Living History)
Strange thing is, I have not yet discovered why they called him Hywel Gwynedd, he's of a north East Family. Although there may be family connections to Gwynedd? Can anyone tell me why? Note the line of descent is as follows:
Ithel Fychan ab Ithel Llwyd to Bleddyyn ab Ithel to Maredudd ap Bleddyn to Dafydd ap Maredudd to Hywel ap Dafydd aka HYWEL GWYNEDD. Check these names out on the web, see what you come up with. Also check out books on Welsh Medieval heraldry. Check out National Biography.
NOTE: Connections to Present Lord Mostyn.The arms would thus be connected to this kindren/clan/cenedl. Check out HALKYN HALL (Yr Hen Hall).
Note: Owain Glyndwr Grandmother is related to this Kindred:
Gwenllian ferch Ieuan ap Ithel Fychan ab Ithel Llwyd, she married a Tudur ap Hywel but I cannot find any children?
Further, to above I came across a contemporary relative who was a mercenary with the French against the English, who came home to Wales just two years prior to 1400, and fought has one of the Gwerin Owain. I have lost that ref, and cannot remember where I found it, curses!!! yes! pretty hopeless researcher, but more because i have so many folders and files from before the High Tech age made things much simpler to file and accesss material.
