a Glamorgan bard
who sang in the second half of the 15th cent. Two
by him survive, the one upon the marriage-feast of
Rhys ap Thomas
, daughter of
, and the other to the ‘paderau main crisial’ (the crystal paternosters). There is a reference to him in a
Llywelyn Goch y Dant
ap Dafydd ap Ieuan ap Rhys
and the district; in them he is described as a man ‘o
Wlad’ — the first
from that valley, as far as is known. The
on the paternosters shows that he possessed considerable descriptive skill.
