  Research Notes:

The death of Hywel is stated to have been deeply felt throughout the neighbourhood. He is described as having been a good scholar, as well as a pious individual; and one also who delighted in entertaining the minstrels, and others, at his table. The bard despairs of his seeing his like again; but with a prophetic eye foretells that his posterity would become numerous; and he prays that they may, like him, prove themselves to be worthy of their country.

Hywel ap Gronwy, of Maelawr Gymmraeg, was the proprietor of Havod y Wern, a stately mansion in the Parish of Wrexham, Denbighshire. Hywel bore the arms of the founder of his tribe, Tudyr Trevor. 2
