[1]  This Dyfed family of the Irish Deisi tribe was descended from Vortepir of c. 465; The mother of Rhydderch ap Iestyn was a daughter of Owain ap Hywel Dda and Rhydderch became King of Deheubarth in 1023 when all males paternally descended from Owain were too young to rule.  He was slain in 1033.
[2] The surname Cradock is the phonetic spelling of the Welsh name Caradog, his ancestor
[3] By letters patent in 1438, Sir Richard Cradock changed his surname to Newton, the home of his ancestor Caradog ap Hywel.  Most assume his reason was that the old name sounded too Welsh at a time when the Welsh were not held in high regard in England where his ancestor had long called home
[4]  Peter Newton was secretary to Prince Arthur, the eldest son of King Henry VII, and served on the king's Privy Council. 
[5]  Sir Peter Newton married Jane, daughter of Geoffrey Cyffin ap Morys ap Geoffrey ap Morys ap Ieuan Gethyn ap Madog Cyffin ap Madog Goch ap Ieuan ap Cuhelyn ap Rhun ap Einion Efell ap Madog ap Maredudd ap Bleddyn ap Cynfyn.  The mother of Jane (and wife of Geoffrey Cyffin) was Anne, daughter of George Stanley, Lord Strange.  George was the eldest son of Sir Thomas Stanley, 1st Earl of Derby but died in his father's lifetime.  His son, Thomas, became the 2nd Earl of Derby.
