The Orange Side of The Family
The second son of Tudor Trevor(JC-1) is Llydocka(JD-2). His lineage has been color coded "orange" and any figure [square or circle] from this point onward colored orange, will be of this descent. The granddaughter of Llydocka(JD-2), named Gweyrl(JE-7), marries a Ednowain Bendew(JE-8). This Ednowain is credited with founding the XIII(13th) Noble Tribe of Wales. On page 438 of Nicholas [Vol. I], is described that "Bendew" means "thick-headed" or "stupid". I suspect this carries the connotation of stubbornness, but I know that thick-headed certainly runs in our family. In Burke, p. lxv., is recorded:
"Ednowian Bendew, Lord of Tegaingle, A.D. 1079, Founder of the XIII Noble Tribe. Ar. a chev. betw. three boars' heads couped sa."
Tegeingl(Tegaingle) is the district between Rhuddlan, Caerwys, Flint, and Holywell. (see Nicholas, Vol. I, p.438.)
The linage of Llydocka(JD-2) has a large number of associated family surnames. Trying to keep all this straight will be a task, but careful tree climbing will be a help. The figure to the right again shows the six generations from Gadforch(JA-1).
