Ancestry of Edwin

Seeks to show through land holdings that Edwin was NOT descended from the Deheubarth family of Hywel Dda, but from the Powys family of Lles Llyddog

Owain ap Edwin and the Traitor charges

Discusses the eldest son of Edwin and the bogus label of "Traitor" applied to him by medieval writers who championed Gruffudd ap Cynan and the family of Rhodri Mawr

The "Ednowain Bendew II" of medieval pedigrees

Argues the chronology points to a birthdate of this man c. 1050, that the first two generations of his family are omitted from most extant pedigrees, and that he was probably Owain ap Edwin but his name was deliberately obscured by his descendants.

Uchdryd ap Edwin, the younger son

Sets forth a valid reason why this man was given lands in Cyfeiliog and Meirionydd by Cadwgan ap Bleddyn, rejecting the notion it was simply because they were cousins.

Aldud ap Owain

Charts the early family of this man and suggests he was an adopted son of Owain whose birthname is unknown, but whose nickname "y alltud" was corrupted to Aldud.

Maredudd and Philip ap Uchdryd

Shows by family timelines that this Uchdryd was not the son of Edwin, but probably his grandson.  And since the descendants of Philip ap Uchdryd are found in Cyfeiliog, we suggest it was Uchdryd ap Uchdryd ap Edwin who fathered Maredudd and Philip.  Also identifies a second Philip ap Uchdryd a generation later than the first.
