2) ap Ynyr: (Lord of Yale, in Denbighland, second son of Howel ap Moriddio ap Sandde Hardd, Lord of Mostyn, in Denbighland. Llewelyn greatly distinguished himself at the battle of Corwen, and his valour was rewarded by his Prince, Gryffyd ap Madoc, Lord of Dinas Bran, under the following circumstances. While conversing with the Prince after the fight, Llewelyn accidentally drew his left hand, smeared with blood, across his sword, leaving four blood-stains upon it, which the Prince observing, ordered him to bear those marks henceforth on his shield, at the same time conferring upon him, as a substantial recognition of his services, the lordship of Gelligynan. The grant is dated in Yale, on the vigil of St. Egidius (probably Eligius, as remarked by Sir Sam. Meyrick in his edition of Dunn’s Visitations," the festival falling on December 1) in the year 1256. Descendants: 1) Lloyds, of Yale, Trowyn and Voelvodig, and three branches, Lloyd, of Bodidris, in Yale, bart., now extinct in the male line; Lloyd, of Gloster, King’s co., extinct in the male line; the last of this line, Col. Hardress Lloyd, d. unm., and is now represented by Vaughan, of Golden Grove; 2) Ellises, of Brondeg and Groes Newydd). [Authorities: Reynold's “Display of the Heraldry of North Wales, 1739,’’ Pennant's “ Tour in Wales,” vol. 1, p. 406, &c. The first edition of the Armory makes the battle that of Crogen, but Reynolds says it was Corwen: and it is simply impossible it could have been Crogen, which was fought nearly a century before the grant made to Llewelyn. Besides, Llewelyn was certainly contemporary with Gryffyd, Lord of Dinas Bran, whose grandfather, Gryffyd Maelor, a distinguished chief, took part, along with Owen Brogyntyn, at the battle of Crogen, and died 30 years later, in 1191, the date of Crogen being 1165.] Paly of eight ar. and gu; some authorities say or, instead of ar.
