Inquisition Post Mortem
289. MEREDITH (Mereducus) AP GRIFFYN. 3
Writ to Master Henry de Bray, the king's bailiff of Belgeveny alias Bergeveny, to enquire what right Morgan ab Mereduk has in the lands &c. of Meredith ab Griffin his father, 10 Jan. 6 Edw. I. [1277/8]
[MONMOUTH.] Inq. (undated.)
Edelegon and Ylebeneyt alias Ylebenete. These tenements descended to the said Meredith by right of inheritance through the death of one Wirvil his ancestress, daughter of Morgan de Kerlyn, and he was seised thereof until Gilbert de Clare, earl of Gloucester and Hertford, ejected him while the king was in the Holy Land.
Mameylad alias Mammeylate was his own inheritance and he died seised thereof.
Compmot hirvryn alias Cummot hyrvreryn. These tenements he died seised of in demesne as of fee, and the said Morgan after his death entered therein by the will of Llewellyn, prince of Wales, who commanded him to come to Snowedon to do his homage and then ejected him. The aforesaid tenements ought to be held of the king in chief by barony, and are not within the bailiwick of Bergeveny except Mameylad, nor will the jury append their seals, for they say they have never done so to any inquisition that it might be transmitted anywhere out of their parts.
The said Morgan is his next heir.
C. Edw. I. File 20. (19.)
Maredudd married Maud FERCH CADWALLON, daughter of Cadwallon AP MADOG and Gwladus FERCH PHILIP.
