Formed his home at Emral c. A.D. 1284....
Sir Roger de Pyvelisdon, about the above date, when, after the fall of the last Prince Llewelyn (A.D. 1282), the government of Wales was being remodelled, the laws placed under new administration, and revenue collected by commissioners from the English king, was appointed by Edward I. to the responsible office of presiding over the fiscal administration of North Wales. It had been determined to collect the fifteenth of the moveable property of the Welsh for the purposes of the Government. In the commotions which ensued, Sir Roger of Emral was executed,-a fate, says Sir Samuel R. Meyrick, that "attended all his assistants who had attempted to enforce the payment of this tribute." 1


Sir Roger Puleston was the first of his family, it is believed, who was seated at Emral, and is a witness to a deed, dated there, 22nd Edward I. (1294). He is said to have been slain by the Welsh in that year. His father, Roger de Pivelisdon, was Deputy Sheriff of Shropshire in 1241. 2
